The KP27B, like the KP27A, is a combination of a compact (4 key wide, 7 key tall) number pad along with 2 rows of function keys. The KP27B, however, condenses the key layout to have all the keys grouped together. The KP27B also introduces a ‘surface mount’ enclosure system that can be bolted down to your console. Full size, full travel ergonomically designed keys allow for reliable, consistent data entry. Non-backlit and backlit layouts are available, with backlighting control typically tied to the console, Cortron keyboard or other remote signal. The KP27B, like all Cortron products, is designed for high reliability, harsh environment applications where failure is not an option.
