Keyboard Works Underwater

The InduProof3 keyboard is sealed against water and dust for complete immersion and has LED backlighting for use in the dark.

The keyboard's wear and tear-resistant silicon top, with special Dura coating, is thermoglued to a 3-mm-thick aluminum base plate, creating a NEMA-6P/IP68 seal. The seal lets the keyboard submerge in up to 10 ft of liquid. Gold-on-gold contact domes ensure accurate data input with tactile feedback rated at over 1 million cycles. Longlife and lowpower consumption LEDs illuminate the keyboard legends, which can be adjusted in eight levels to adjust for light conditions. Operating temperature range is 40 to 194°F.
