Waterproof Keyboards & Encoders

The Reid Print Technologies USB Keyboard Encoder makes it easy to connect custom membrane QWERTY keypads to the USB keyboard port of a PC, by converting contact closures to Windows compatible PC USB keyboard codes. Reid Print Technologie's Keyboard Encoder provides an opportunity for you to customise your membrane QWERTY keypad, utilising our extensive range of MacDermid Autotype hard coated polyester films. These films allow unlimited textures including Autotex AM (Antimicrobial) for those environments that require a germicide or Autotex Soft Touch for a silky smooth feel to your keyboard.

Product Options

The Reid Print Technologie's USB Keyboard Encoders are a simple plug and play device linked via a USB cable directly to your Windows PC environment. The Reid Print Technologie's membrane QWERTY keyboard can be designed to your graphic requirements, and by using our range of 3M adhesives becomes a completely sealed solution able to be used in the harshest environments and meet your IP expectations.

Tasmanian Scale Company

Our customer, Tasmanian Scale Company is a weighing machine manufacturer based in Tasmania, primarily supplying weighing equipment to the dairy industry. They came to Reid Print Technologies in search of a waterproof QWERTY Keyboard that would withstand the rigours of the chemicals used in the dairy on a daily basis. By working closely with Reid Print Technologies design and development team, a customised turnkey product incorporating traditional membrane switch technology and Reid Print Technologie's USB Keyboard Encoder was produced. The plug and play controller is designed to seamlessly link to a device via a USB cable, whilst the embossed overlay layer on the membrane switch gives consistent tactile feedback for the dairy operators.


We can also customise our standard USB Keyboard Encoders (key mapping or board layout) to your needs or specifications. For more information contact us with your specifications.
