Econo Keys EK 97 TP – Ultra tough keyboard


This Econo Keys EK-97-TP is what’s known in the biz as a hose-off keyboard. It’s got a Tonka-like IP67 rating so it is completely sealed against dust and water, you can even immerse it in up to 1m of water. It’s resistant to bleach, alcohol (woohoo) and hospital-grade disinfectant. The keyboard has a touch pad with left/right buttons, a small 10 key number pad, 1.8m USB cable and it works with everything. US$156.


The EK-97-TP is a full-size keyboard with the added convenience of a built-in touchpad. Its fully sealed keys, touchpad and numberpad meet IP67 standards to be resistant to dirt, debris and water, so it can easily withstand medical and industrial environments, along with repeated cleaning procedures.
