iKey has redesigned its popular DW-860 rugged wireless keyboard into a sleeker, more compact case with no protruding battery pack. The new case enables the keyboard to be more convenient for mobile and wireless users. The improved DW-860 case has a built-in battery compartment with a sealed cap for accessing its three AA batteries, eliminating the need for the older model's external battery pack protruding from the main footprint of the assembly. This sealed enclosure allows it to receive higher industrial ratings in submersible tests. The keyboard, enclosed in a lightweight polycarbonate case, is extremely rugged and is rated NEMA 4X, meaning it can withstand harsh environments such as those in medical and mobile applications.
