Keypads for the outdoors - EAO Switch Corp.

The M and S Series keypads are vandal resistant and suitable for indoor or outdoor use in applications including banking kiosks, ticketing machines, access-control systems, and other harsh public environments.

The M Series offers easy panel configurations and adaptable layouts in any number of keys, as well as standard 4, 12, or 16-key layouts. Features include LED illumination in blue, red, yellow, green, or white; multiple button shapes and colors on one keypad; and blank spaces for separation between keys; and antitwist, antipull off, and nonsticking keys.

The S Series Lite simulates metal, but is made from a polycarbonate plastic. A simulated scratch-resistant matte chrome finish offers a long-lasting appearance. Design options include laser etching for a multitude of legend characters and standard illumination in blue or yellow LEDs is visible either through or around the legend. Other colors (red, green, orange, and white) are optional. Several layouts and custom legends are possible within the two standard sizes, 12-key telephone or 16-key hexadecimal.
