Optimized for controlling a KVM, these programmable keys can send any key combination or string of keystrokes, and lower operator error and training time. Anything an operator can do on a keyboard can be replicated and assigned to one clearly labeled key. Dedicated keys maximize efficiency and lower operator training time.
