iKey SBW-97-TP Washable Wireless Keyboard


The SBW-97-TP is the first rechargeable, wireless keyboard with the unique ability to pair to a USB dongle over a 802.11G wireless frequency. Unlike traditional wireless keyboards, pairing of the SBW-97-TP does not require the user to press a button on the USB radio dongle or interact with the computer operating system. Once the USB dongle has been installed in the host computer, pairing is only a two keystroke procedure. This exclusive feature allows for a keyboard to be moved from computer to computer and paired for operation directly at the keyboard.

The SBW-97-TP is rechargeable via the provided micro USB connection and stays charged for approximately 2 weeks with regular use. Manufactured with an integrated touchpad pointing device, the SBW-97-TP offers LED indicators for pairing, battery life, and charging, and it can be mounted for added ease of use. Optional magnetic mounting is available. With a fully-sealed industrial silicone rubber pad and polycarbonate case, the SBW-97-TP is engineered for NEMA 4x specifications, making it resistant to water, dust, and compatible with hospital cleaning agents. Featuring a CleanLock™ key, the SBW-97-TP can be quickly disabled during the sanitizing process making this keyboard ideal for use in OR's, patient rooms, medical carts, and nursing stations.
