A trackball without a cable is like an anchor without a chain. The anchor does its job, but I wouldn't trust it.

An article about wireless keyboards and trackballs solutions and our latest innovations.

At NSI, we dare to call ourselves specialists in keyboards and pointing devices. For more than 30 years, our developments have provided reliable solutions for the most demanding applications. To meet the strict requirements in our main markets, our top priority is to deliver only solutions that you can rely on for their robustness and reliability.

We are regularly asked why we do not (yet) supply wireless keyboards or trackballs. On this we can be clear and honest: a wireless technology is not (yet) 100% reliable in our main industries, while this is just one of our top priorities at NSI. It is our main focus to deliver only outstanding solutions that you can fully rely on, even in harsh conditions.

Or as we also say:

A trackball without a cable is like an anchor without a chain. The anchor does its job, but I wouldn't trust it.

But at NSI we continue to innovate, so we can hereby inform that we are working on reliable wireless systems. Of course, we have to take some important things into consideration to ensure we deliver the quality you expect from us:

      • Can 100% reliability be guaranteed?
      • What about the power supply in the device?
      • What about the high or low working temperatures and humid environments?
      • Does wireless continue to work with several other electrical systems in the same environment?

So in any case, we are confident of our wired products, but we continue to innovate!

For example, one of our latest developments that we are quite proud of is the trackball below: the ambidextrous trackball. It is a completely new development together with our partner Cursor Controls:

      • Usable for both right- and left-handed users
      • High resolution sensor
      • Innovative touch scroll pad
      • Ceramic bearings
        And guess what... it's wired!

This trackball is our latest new development, which we are delighted to say it will very shortly be undergoing IEC60945 marine certification. It promises to be a great addition to our marine solutions and a unique product in the maritime market.

If you want more information or to be kept up to date with our NSI developments:, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to provide the necessary details.
