custom trackball

Make your own trackball

Industry or application: Automatic machines, soda bottling lines

Customer’s question or problem: We want a device for our automatic machine console to select functions and make manipulation on a screen (zoom, selection of area etc)  – the device must be IP68 if possible and easy to clean (projection of water and other liquids like soda)

Our solution : we first proposed our standard trackball type TSX50 trackball with 3 buttons and removable ball.  Operators did not like the top position of buttons and the customer did not want middle button , then we simply proposed 2 buttons and reversed the trackball (buttons under the ball)


Keyboard adapted to your environment

Industry or application : Food processing industry

Customer’s question or problem: A touch screen seems to be the perfect solution for food applications, but it has limitations on ergonomics and usability. The combination of cold environments and 60 °C hot water for cleaning makes it a challenging environment. What can NSI offer to us ?

Our solution: We have adapted two industrial keyboards to the harsh conditions that occur in the food processing industry. The housing is made of stainless steel, the seal is IP65. The keyboard is available with an integrated waterproof trackball or a touch pad that can also be operated with gloves. The integration of a waterproof breathable membrane on the back ensures a dry environment within the housing. Now offered as a standard solution.
