FREE Modular Programmable Keyboards

Product Type: 
Device modifier

Product Description: 

The FREE family comprises a range of Keyboard Modules in different sizes and matrix arrangements. Modules can be freely combined into different compositions, referred to as Configurations. Each configuration must incorporate one Tipro Controller. The controller provides interface (USB by default) to the host system (computer) and acts as a master of the Tipro Bus which electrically interconnects the modules. Selected keyboard modules can be complemented with so-called Special Function Modules that are divided into the following three groups: Card Readers, Identifications Modules and Pointing Devices. All FREE modules can also be combined with FREE+ touchmonitors and BeFREE touchcomputers.
