iKey Redesigns Wireless DW-860 for Sleek, Compact Size

Austin, Texas - 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.

"At iKey, we are constantly working to develop new products and improve existing products," Danielle Nepustil, iKey Marketing Manager, said. "The removal of the protruding battery pack on the DW-860 case makes it more compact and user-friendly."

The DW-860 integrates HulaPoint II(TM), a joystick-like pointing device, eliminating the need for an external mouse. For added convenience and mobility, it includes WirelessUSB(TM) technology, a 30-foot RF range and no line-of-site limitations to ensure dynamic applications, including secure communication with a PC inside a metal enclosure.

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 industrial, medical and mobile applications. It measures 11.393" x 6.317" x 1.588" (w-h-d).

The DW-860 utilizes a plug-and-play USB dongle and includes built-in mobile mounting holes. It can be purchased by calling 1-800-866-6506 or visiting
