Dealing room keyboard and keypad considerations


Key switch design and programming Access keypad programming software

Optimised operator transaction speed and accuracy can be achieved with clear key layout and programming.


We provide a configuration service to customise keypads with special key layouts, colours and legends. Key positions can be programmed to have a single character or string of characters. Adjacent keys may be combined to provide double or quad keys. Alternatively, keys may be disabled using a key switch lock-out cover. A keyboard pass-through port is fitted as standard for system maintenance and programming.


To help customers design their own keyboard configurations, Access has developed their SoftProg32 Windows configuration software. Available free-of-charge to Access customers, this utility is intuitive to use. Once completed, a keyboard configuration can be downloaded to the keyboard's non-volatile memory or be sent back to us where we can use the configuration settings to programme keyboards in production.

The majority of the applications we satisfy have a pressure on the amount of space available to the keyboard. As a result we have become expert at providing compact designs, with full function keyboards as small as 16 by 14.5cm.


Reliability is built in to all products as standard. This begins with the use of high quality key switches that are designed to withstand 50 million operations. Contact is made half way along the key switch's 4mm travel, providing a high quality and responsive feel to the operator. All keyboards are built around a robust steel frame into which all key switches are directly fixed providing a strong back-bone to every design.

Significant investments are made by our customers in their brand, and their brand image can be carried through to the keyboard as simply as adding the corporate logo or as far as matching the keyboard housing and keytops to the corporate colours.
