NSI's latest innovations in (wireless) keyboards and trackballs: solutions for enhanced productivity and comfort.
An article about wireless keyboards and trackballs and our latest innovations.
At NSI, we dare to call ourselves specialists in keyboards, trackballs and other 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 key markets, our top priority is to deliver only solutions you can fully trust.
Wireless keyboards and trackballs
We are regularly asked why we do not currently offer wireless keyboards or trackballs. We can be clear and honest about this: a wireless technology is not (yet) 100% reliable for our main industries, while this is precisely one of the top priorities at NSI. Our main objective is to provide only excellent 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 herewith we can announce that we are currently working on reliable wireless systems. Of course, there are some important things we have to take into account to ensure that we deliver the quality you expect from us:
- Can 100% reliability be guaranteed?
- What about the power supply in the device?
- What about high or low operating temperatures and humid environments?
- Will wireless continue to work with several other electrical systems in the same environment?
So right now, we are still fully committed to our wired solutions, but of course we continue to innovate and develop!
New trackball development - the ambidextrous trackball
For example, one of our latest developments that we are quite proud of is the trackball below: the ambidextrous trackball. This trackball 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 will very shortly be undergoing IEC60945 marine certification. It promises to be a great addition to our maritime solutions and a unique product in the maritime market.
New keyboard development - short travel keyboard with ergonomical trackball
As an addition to our popular silicone rubber keyboard with ergonomic trackball, we are also pleased to announce that we are introducing a new industrial keyboard with ergonomic trackball:
- The KSML106 with a E38 ergonomic trackball
Detailed technical information and datasheets will be available soon. These new keyboards will also be added to our standard range and the product catalog on the website soon.
