USB Wire Interface

Features

  • Up to 14 digital inputs and two digital outputs
  • HID keyboard, mouse, and joystick hardware emulation
  • Free SDKs for Windows, Linux, and Android
  • Internal memory for hardware, resident macros for OS independent support
  • Compatible with our 4, 6, and 8 button pendants and foot switches

The X-keys® USB HD15 Wire Interface uses the same electronic design as our X-keys Programmable Keyboards and Foot Pedals. X-keys devices can emulate USB Keyboard, Mouse, or Game Controller. Additionally, software developers can integrate X-keys with our HID Input and output messages.

Resources for Software Developers

P. I. Engineering offers a wide range of options for application developers. Click on any heading to learn more. If you don’t see what you’re looking for here, please contact us (tech@xkeys.com). We have friendly techs and engineers waiting to help you integrate X-keys into your solution.

Windows SDK

Includes comprehensive examples in C#, C++, and VB.NET for Windows desktop development in Visual Studio, as well as Java for Android development in Eclipse. Supported via phone and email during standard business hours by our technical support staff.

OS X SDK

An Xcode worspace with two project: one for the viewer application, and one for the X-keys framework. Demonstrates reading and writing to X-keys devices.

Linux SDK

Open source Linux support written in C++. Features code for accessing all X-keys controls and key states and includes a simple, straight forward example GUI. Written by Linux HID expert Alan Ott.</p

Android Samples

Assorted Eclipse projects we have created to demonstrate how to handle various input options (such as joystick and game controller button data) on Android.
