The ActiveMetal control keypads, available in both 12-key (3 × 4) and 16-key (4 × 4) configurations, feature touch-sensitive activation, weather/water/dust resistance, raised sculpted keys with permanent markings, and solid-metal vandalproof construction. The keypads are suited for indoor/outdoor access control, kiosks and point-of-sale, alarm systems, keyless entry points, medical and cleanrooms, and other applications. Other advantages of the ActiveMetal keypads include solid-state electronics, diagnostic and real-time feedback, washable/submersible performance, and a lifetime product warranty. Users can choose from three output options (matrix, serial RS-232, or Wiegand), electrical box/panel/underpanel mounting, and two customer-controlled LEDs. Rated to operate from –40° to 85°C, the keypads are unaffected by vibration and humidity, meet or exceed IP-x6, NEMA 4x, and IP68 ingress, and are rated at 9–24 V dc at 50 mA (max). An auxiliary port at 30 V dc and 100 mA (max) is provided for additional power connections.
