X-keys XKE-128 KVM Keyboard

Optimized for controlling a KVM switch, 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.

Please note:KVM version X-keys send pure USB HID keyboard codes and are intended for use only with hardware that does not have a traditional operating system behind it (like a KVM). If the X-keys will be connected directly to a Windows, OS X, or Linux computer, our standard X-keys products may be better suited to fit your requirements.

Our free Windows based programming utility makes it easy to assign keystrokes, key combinations, and strings (with or without modifiers) to clearly labeled, dedicated keys. The X-keys emulates a standard USB keyboard and eliminates issues with most KVM input limitations.

Prototyping
The XKE-128 KVM ships fully populated with 128 relegendable keys - perfect for testing multiple layout options. Add optional large keys and key blockers to refine the layout. Using an established hardware platform saves time moving from prototype to production.

Production
When it comes time to reproduce your finished prototype, select options ranging from printed key legends to acrylic printed ABS keys to double-shot molded key caps. We offer custom brand labeling, assembly, programming, and testing to provide a delivered plug-and-play solution. We specialize in 10-100 unit custom control solutions with the capability to step up to thousands of units for large scale deployment.
