BT-87-TP-IS and DW-5K-IS keyboards are newly announced as “the world’s first intrinsically-safe keyboard, with the added convenience of wireless technology.”
The designs are said to completely eliminate the cable, bulkhead connectors, and barriers normally required for IS keyboards. Models are declared “just as safe as wired IS products but cost 35% less because they do not require barriers.” Both are FM approved for Class I, II, and III; Div. 1; Groups C, D, E, F, and G.
DW-5K-IS requires three AA batteries and a USB dongle isolated from the hazardous location to operate. It features an integrated HulaPoint II pointing device.
BT-87-TP-IS is a Bluetooth-compatible, submersible keyboard. It does not require a USB dongle if the host computer is also Bluetooth-compatible. It uses two AA batteries for power. Further keyboards data are free.
