We support our customers beyond the production of the pure keyboard also with the development and production of connexion electronics which we deliver programmed according to our customers’ specifications.

The keyboard controller series mtcon were developped for serving as an interface module between a control panel (keyboard) and a processing system (personal computer). Their task is the interpretation of a defined keyboard matrix and the transmission of the stored matrix code in serial form.

As a communication interface, the controller supports the PS/2 and USB (HID)-protocol.

more information 

Although the controller of the series mtcon are standardised products, it is necessary to adapt the matrix codes to the special needs of the user or the application. This adaptation is effected by programming a specific matrix table during the final mounting of the controller. The definition of this table between the user and our technician is done with the first order. Alternative assembly options for connection to the desired peripheral devices can also be defined.

The controller is delivered in an operative condition, only the connection to the control panel and the PC should be established by a plug-in or soldered connection. Suitable connection cables (PS/2 and USB) are available as accessories in our program. According to usage site, a cover plate or an enclosure will be necessary.
