Only 16 inches (405 mm) wide, the LK1600 can fit in almost any workstation area. It includes an alphanumeric keyboard with a full compliment of 55 function and numeric keys and an optional magnetic stripe reader. Furthermore, the unit also has a PS/2 I/O port to enable the daisy-chaining of other input devices such as a scanner or check reader. The LK1600 programmable keyboard is thus an ideal solution for the retail, hospitality, travel, banking, and insurance industries.
The LK1600 is one of the easiest and most programmable keyboards on the market. All 120 keys are programmable and 38 keys are re-legendable with transparent key caps. Using a powerful Windows-based programming utility that stores key definitions in a data file, an integrator can create a program layout for multiple keyboards, rather than programming key-by-key, keyboard by keyboard. The keys can be programmed with multiple shift levels to further increase the number of effective programmable keys, and a key lock switch is used to select the program layer - e.g., manager override, department 1, department 2, etc.
Since the LK1600 comes with either a PS/2 or USB interface and is supported by both OPOS and JPOS drivers, it can be used on just about any Windows or Linux-based system. The LK1600 supports a true keyboard wedge function and can operate with or without another computer keyboard.
