Intrinsically safe, wireless keyboardsThe DW-5K-IS and BT-87-TP-IS keyboards are the first-known, completely sealed, intrinsically safe (IS) wireless keyboards on the market. The products are in the final stages of testing by Factory Mutual (FM) to ensure they meet the requirements for operation in hazardous locations. Each of the company’s IS products receives FM approval for Class I, II, and III, Division I, Groups C, D, E, F and G. The DW-5K-IS requires three AA batteries and a USB dongle isolated from the hazardous location, in the host computer, to operate. The DW-5K-IS features an integrated HulaPoint II pointing device and measures 14.97” x 6.61” x 1.91” (width-height-depth). The BT-87-TP-IS is a Bluetooth-compatible, submersible keyboard that does not require a USB dongle if the host computer is also Bluetooth-compatible. It needs two AA batteries for power. The BT-87-TP-IS features an integrated touchpad and measures 12.01” x 7.75” x 2.03” (width-height-depth).
