The new B&R keypad module with integrated illuminated ring keys is designed to combine ergonomic design and robust construction for tough industrial environments. With the compact dimensions of a mobile phone and IP65 washdown protection, this new control device can be used wherever it’s needed on the machine. Its special hygienic design ensures a maximum degree of cleanliness even in sensitive working environments such as those found in the foodstuffs and pharmaceutical industries. The keys can be illuminated in yellow, green, red and white and labeled as needed using legend strips. Fully homogeneous ring key illumination ensures a perfect signal effect, while tactile feedback provides an additional layer of operating comfort. And with three different designs, users can choose the one that best fits to the application’s requirements.
