_UMD - Model 265-K
Programmable Keyboard

The UMD Model 265 Series Custom Keyboards are part of the Unique Micro Design ProtoLink Architecture family of products. They are fully programmable keyboards available with removable keycap style keyswitches with tactile feedback. The 60 keys are arranged in an 5 x 12 matrix of "chess board" style layout. Each of the keys may be individually programmed with multiple keystroke sequences. This ensures total flexibility of layout and means it can be tailored to suit your software exactly.

The Model 265 Series also feature inbuilt keyboard wedge, two serial ports and Bar Code decoder. This means all your requirements are integrated into a single, space saving package. An optional integrated 1 or 2 track magnetic card reader is also available. The Model 264 can operate in either keyboard mode or serial mode. In keyboard mode, it becomes an IBM compatible PC/XT/AT or PS/2 keyboard and may be used in conjunction with the existing keyboard. In serial mode, data is sent via a serial port.
