PowerKey PRO Series Keypads



Keypads in the PRO series are the only ones currently on the market that boast keys with removable inserts. The symbol on each PowerKey PRO is laser-etched on a plastic insert that can easily be removed and replaced without needing to take apart the rest of the keypad or cockpit.

The PowerKey PRO SI and SI-FR Series are high-density keypads with small keys (15mm); compact and rational, they guarantee maximum control with minimum size. The PowerKey PRO LI Series offer large keys (24mm), enabling the user to read quickly and apply secure pressure even when using the keypad while wearing gloves.

Software Features

  •   CAN and RS485 Keypad Addresses - Assign any valid CAN and RS485 address to the keypad. Communicate on either BUS simultaneously.

  •   J1939 Address Claim Transmission - Keypads no longer have to be pre-programmed to a specific address. This enables customers that work in applications in the field without access to a GUI to use any replacement keypad on-hand. The keypad can be configured to automatically announce its address and accept a new address assignment as appropriate.

  •   Event Status Transmission - The keypad can send messages to the BUS indicating a button press or a button release event has occurred. This confirmation allows digital systems to have the same input acknowledgements as that of the latching position of a mechanical switch.

  •   Periodic Status Transmission - The keypad sends a continuous broadcast of messages indicating the press or release status of each button at that instance. The frequency of these messages can be adjusted in a wide range.

  •   Online Set-Up - An online set-up system makes it possible to select and design your own prototype, then order it directly on blinkmarine.com.

  •   Periodic Heartbeat - The keypad sends a continuous broadcast of messages indicating it is functioning correctly. The frequency of these messages can be adjusted in a wide range.

  •   CANopen Communications Protocol (PKP-SI-FR Series) – Fully compliant with Device Profile 401d.

 

Hardware Features

  •   IP67/IP69K Waterproof Rating - Guaranteed to be dust tight and sealed against water immersion to a depth of 1 meter for up to 1 hour. The IP69K rating provides protection against high pressure water at high temperature spray downs.

  •   UV Protected - UVB 400 hours: Keypad is highly resistant to deterioration caused by exposure to sunlight.

  •   Customizable inserts (PKP-SI and PKP-LI Series) - The replacement system for individual inserts makes modifying the keypad layout simpler and more economical. Hundreds of different stock inserts can be viewed at blinkmarine.com, and it is possible to order customized ones.

  •   A membrane compensation valve which self compensate the internal pressure within the keypad, alleviating mechanical stresses that can be produced by shifts in external temperatures.

  •   The keypad’s symmetrical design and spacing between keys makes it easier to install multiple keypads alongside one another.
