QTP PC Keyboard is a complete low cost operator panel with small overall dimension, that can be connected to normal PC keyboard, AT or PS2 types, specifically designed for industrial use and for direct mounting on automatic machinery.

The picture shows the card QTP PCK without display.

QTP PC Keyboard is available with alphanumeric Fluorescent or LCD Displays, backlite throgh LEDs panel, with 20 characters for 2 or 4 lines or with 40 characters for 2 lines. QTP PC Keyboard is directly connected with the Display, so it has an overall frontal dimension equal to the selected display used for visualization. For the mechanic fixing the user must use the onboard displays holes.

Housing QTP 72144 or QTP 96192.

Some models of QTP PC Keyboard can be inserted in the proper container QTP 72144 or QTP 96192 obtaining an enclosed product that have a protected front side and back openings for connections and that can be easily mounted in front panel modality.

QTP PC Keyboard is really usefull in all those applications where the user must visualize some messages in fact, according to installed EEPROM, up to 98 messages can be directly saved. These messages can be recalled by dedicated commands received through the serial line and visualizated on the display. With this feature the CPU work-time and the program space are reduced, in fact messages must not be sent to the panel every time, they are just stored in EEPROM. Furthermore it is possible to get messages back through the serial line and read them again, so QTP PC Keyboard can be used as small mass memory where the user can save and read Set-Up informations, Passwords, identification codes, etc.

Other typical applications for QTP PC Keyboard are the systems that require an interaction with operator, especially those where many alphabetical, numeric and function keys are necessary. The external PC keyboard, AT or PS2 type, completely satisfy these requirements through its 102 keys, its 155 different codes obtained by contemporaneos stroke of different keys and its classic autorepeat and keyclick functions. Thanks to PC keyboard can be also performed some visual indications, in fact the three LEDs available on the keyboard can be driven through software by the user.

Most important features of QTP PC Keyboard are as follows:

The maximum dimension of QTP PCK are reported in the following figure; to obtain complete mounting quotes please refer to user manual.
