Thanks to its IP67 input protection level, it is weather resistant and continues to function even in extreme environments. Keypads in the PRO series are the only ones currently on the market that boast keys with removable inserts. The symbol on each PowerKey PRO 2400 key is laser-printed on a 24 mm insert (compatible with PKP 2200) that can easily be removed and substituted without needing to take apart the rest of the keypad or cockpit. The use of open protocols makes keypads in the PRO series perfect for both automotive and nautical markets.
CAN and RS485 Keypad Addresses – Assign any valid CAN (J1939) address to the keypad while also assigning the same or a different RS485 address. Communicate on either BUS simultaneously.
J1939 Address Claim Transmission – Keypads no longer have to be pre-programmed to a specific address. This enables customers that work in applications in the field without access to a GUI to use any replacement keypad on-hand. The keypad can be configured to automatically announce its address and accept a new address assignment as appropriate.
Event Status Transmission – The keypad can send messages to the BUS indicating a button press or a button release event has occurred. This confirmation allows digital systems to have the same input acknowledgements as that of the latching position of a mechanical switch.
Periodic Status Transmission – The keypad sends a continuous broadcast of messages indicating the press or release status of each button at that instance. The frequency of these messages but can be adjusted in a wide range.
Periodic Heartbeat – The keypad sends a continuous broadcast of messages indicating it is functioning correctly. The frequency of these messages but can be adjusted in a wide range.
CANopen Communications Protocol – Fully compliant with Device Profile 401d.
IP67/NEMA6 rating – Guaranteed to be dust tight and sealed against water immersion to a depth of 1 meter for up to 1 hour.
UV Protected – UVB 400 hours: Keypad is highly resistant to deterioration caused by exposure to sunlight.
Customizable inserts – The replacement system for individual inserts makes modifying the keypad layout simpler and more economical. Hundreds of different pre-existing keys can be viewed at keypad.it, and it is possible to order customized inserts.
