W30 Freely Programmable Keyboard The Interface Between Human and Information Technology

(PresseBox) (Germering, ) With the W30, GeBE is introducing a smart keyboard with 30 keys that can be programmed on two levels with up to 16 characters per key and level. The newly developed "W" form accommodates three different key cap shapes and is now coming on the market in a black design. The front of the device is protected in accordance with IP65. It is ideal for application specific programming consisting of complex macros or text modules. Available with PS/2 or RS232 connection, USB on request.

Simultaneous Translator
With the W30, GeBE is offering a fast interface that works with up to 16-digit data strings per key: Whether complex makros, key combinations, or often used text modules, the assigning of keys can be individually programmed by the user at any time. Great for gastronomy and hotel industry, as well as manufacturing industry and trade.

Key Caps in Three Different Sizes
The freely programmable W30 can be configured with three different key cap shapes: double length keys (2x1), square keys (2x2), or simple keys (1x1). The labeling of the keys is done through a laser or click-on process, the latter by using insertable membranes. The front of the device is protected against dust and splashing in accordance with DIN IP65.

Easy Programming
With the included TEACH Software, 58 keys total can be very easily programmed. 29 keys are double-assignable through the FN level. Once a prototype is created, the programming can easily be transferred to other programs.

Custom Adaptations
The W30 is also available as a serial version (RS232), and it programs ASCII characters, as well as HEX or decimal values. On customer request, custom programming at the factory is available, even for smaller quantities.

Price and Availability
The W30 is offered in black or gray or silver for app. 125 Euros. Available directly from GeBE Computer & Peripherie GmbH. Further information: here...
