iKey brings BT-87-TP keyboard to market


iKey has a sweet new keyboard that seems to be built to thrive in a dental environment. The new keyboard is called the BT-87-TP (don't these people think about the names of some of these devices?) Despite the confusing and hard to remember name, this baby has some serious things to offer in the clinical dental environment.

Check out the press release and see why I'm excited about the potential for this device.

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- iKey, LTD officially released a
new industrial keyboard featuring Bluetooth(R) wireless technology. It is
the world's first fully sealed, wireless industrial keyboard with an
integrated touchpad.

The new BT-87-TP keyboard is specially sealed to be dust proof and
submersible. It features an integrated touchpad and 87 keys, including 12
function keys.

"The key difference between the BT-87-TP and our other wireless models
is the Bluetooth(R) technology," said Joel East of iKey Business
Development. "It does not require a dongle or other external receiver and
will connect easily with any Bluetooth(R)-enabled computers, allowing users
to carry the keyboard from workstation to workstation."

The compact case design and internal Bluetooth(R) module make the
BT-87-TP highly portable. It can be easily mounted or carried and can
connect to any Bluetooth(R)-enabled computer. This makes the new mobile
keyboard an ideal fit for material handling, medical, food/beverage
processing, and other environments where rugged flexibility is important.

Measuring roughly 12" x 7.75" x 2", the BT-87-TP is designed for
mobility. The industrial keyboard features a rugged ABS polycarbonate case
with an easy-to-clean silicon rubber key overlay, and is built to withstand
harsh, dirty, dusty, wet, and corrosive environments.

Additionally, the keyboard can be used with enclosure-housed computers
and machines that are separated by a barrier for safety, security, or
environmental reasons. Each BT-87-TP requires two AA batteries.
