They are resistant to airborne particles such as dirt and dust, extreme temperatures, and the elements, rain, sleet, water, snow and corrosives. You will find iKey’s products to be perfect for work in the field, in vehicles and at industrial workstations.
Vibration, brightness, weather elements and temperature are big factors when choosing rugged peripherals. Gloved-use is also a factor to consider, and iKey has oversize keypad and keys that are engineered for gloved hands.
