Product Highlights

The ControlPad 683 is versatile, 24-key programmable keypad. The keys are relegendable, allowing the user to label them to fit a specific need. The non-volatile, programmable memory allows the keypad to connect to any USB or PS/2 port without installing resident software. The keypad is easy to program using the Windows compatible software provided. Assembled with high quality Cherry MX keyswitches, the keys are durable, yet light and easy to press -- a feature lacking on lesser quality keypads.

683: (PS/2+USB version) The PS2 "Y" wedge adapter allows this keypad to wedge a standard PS/2 external keyboard or other PS2 device to a USB or PS/2 host. The 683 automatically detects PS/2 or USB host ports and functions as PS/2 keyboard or USB HID keyboard interchangeably.
