|Presenting the new abm KID or Keyboard
Input Device. Also known as a Handheld Terminal or Human
Machine Interface Terminal.
Some customers of the ajet 101 and ALTIMA 107 prefer to use a Handheld Terminal rather than a computer to interface with the printer to enter messages, set time ect. We have long offered an off-the-shelf handheld that was semi-customized for the purpose but it was less than ideal. Our new Handheld Terminal uses a 40 keyswitch membrane keypad but with the keys arranged so that the full alphabet and numbers are available without shifting. By pressing the shift key all punctuation marks as well as ten predefined character strings are available.
The LCD screen is 20 character by four lines and is back lighted.
|The LCD display chosen for the abm KID, unlike most, is able to display many Latin characters. The photo to the left is an example.|
The output is a DB-9 plug so a standard low cost 9 pin male to female serial cable may be used.
|Press the shift key, as has been done in the photo to the
left, the LED is lit and all the punctuation marks as well as ten predefined
character strings are available.
For the ajet customers five commonly used commands are defined and the others are undefined but they are easily changed at customer request.
