Clear key lenses keeps printed or hand written legends in place and protects them from ware while constantly using this keypad – while still being quick and easy to update supporting the versatile control used in any computer application.
The Jog Wheel:
The jog wheel is the inner dial pictured above. It can be turned a full 360 degrees clockwise, or counter clockwise. The wheel has 10 gentle friction points that prevent it from spinning freely. A small finger depression is located on top of the wheel to prevent fingers from slipping off during use. The jog wheel is capable of analogue or digital output. The default operation of the jog wheel sends left or right arrow keys, when turned counter clockwise or clockwise, respectively. The functions activated by the wheel's rotation can be changed within the MacroWorks 3 software.
The Shuttle Knob:
The shuttle knob can be rotated roughly 30 degrees clockwise or counter clockwise, and automatically returns to the neutral position when released. The knob has 15 recognized events along this range of motion: seven for each direction, and one for neutral. All of these events can be programmed within MacroWorks 3.1. The default operation is to send left and right arrow keys at a set rate when the knob is turned counter clockwise or clockwise, increasing in rate as the knob is turned further.
Compatible with Windows and Mac with free downloadable programming software, the XK-12 is perfect for anyone who wants to work with ease and create shortcuts to support and assist with workload.
