iKey® created the rugged keyboard industry in 1989 and we have been setting the standard for industrial keyboards and peripherals ever since. Industrial manufacturing companies are one of the largest users of rugged computer peripherals and iKey is their leading supplier. We also make keyboards that pair perfectly with Zebra® data entry solutions.

iKey’s products can be found across the globe in facilities that manufacture automobiles, building materials, chemical products, consumer goods, custom machines, electronics, food & beverage items, and rugged systems. International brands such as Nestle, General Mills, Coca-Cola, Ford, Toyota, Boeing, Chevron, DOW Chemical, and many more, count on iKey keyboards to help keep their facilities running.

Every company has unique needs and specifications for their computer equipment and they trust iKey products to keep up with their production demands.  When a keyboard breaking means a forklift is out of commission, or an assembly line is shut down, standard keyboards are simply not enough.

iKey’s rugged peripherals are “real tough for real life,” and will keep working reliably when the downtime and expense of failed equipment are costly. We have over 27 years of proof in the field that our solutions are hands-down reliable, perfectly designed and built to withstand the roughest working conditions. Whether you have a need for one keyboard or several hundred, iKey is your best choice for the best rugged solutions. (Real Tough for Real Life®)

We can also customize to a specific customer wish list. iKey has solutions to integrate with your equipment, on the plant floor, and, of course, for use on forklifts to keep up with demands of production. If we can’t meet your needs with our existing product line, then we will work to build a solution for you.

  • Ready to order products ship within 3-5 days
  • All products are built to meet IP 65+ and NEMA 4X standards
  • Lifetime support and offer repairs on almost all products

iKey Products Pair with Zebra Data Entry Solutions

iKey makes keyboards and displays that are compatible with Zebra® data entry solutions. Many of these are mobile, and panel mount for use in forklifts and other vehicles. The most popular iKey products to pair Zebra include:

  • Most popular keyboard for Zebra customers:  Industrial Keyboard SLK-101-M- USB-3F (Zebra part #) which is iKey’s  SlimKey™ SLK-101-M
  • Two other popular products for Zebra pairing: iKey’s small footprint with oversize keys: DP-72-USB, and our industrial keyboard with emergency key, the SL-86-FSR-USB


    “Real Customized” is the term we use to describe our capabilities to design a keyboard or full solution just for you. iKey has specific features built into our industrial manufacturing peripherals, and our keyboards are designed to meet IP65 specifications or higher. And for further customization, you can use our experience and knowledge to build a product that is customized to your exact needs; change backlighting, size, weight, function keys and more. We hand build our first-class products in the United States and we build to order, to ensure the highest quality, every time. Our in-house designers and engineers are at the top of their field.
