The M-Flex CAN keypads are an outgrowth from Marlin’s long history of developing custom keypads for customer’s unique applications. They provide the same harsh environment ruggedness that customers have experienced with our custom keypads with the convenience of a standard design that can be integrated into applications without the typical customizing costs or long lead times.
The keypads include many features that make them easy to implement into a new or existing applications. The push buttons have solid tactile feedback and dimmable backlight capability for easy viewability. Keys can be activated with a bare finger or glove. Each key has an operating life that exceeds 1 million activations. The keys are laser etched with custom icons, numbers, or letters per customer requirements. Three Programmable amber LED indicator lights line the top of each key. The M-Flex Keypads are designed for the demanding construction, turf-care, agricultural, utility, marine, military, and outdoor power markets.
