Control Keypad Modules

What Is a Control Keypad Module?

A control keypad module allows the user to press keys and enter codes to control secured machinery or equipment. Manufacturers design industrial-strength keypads to withstand intense work environments like warehouses and resist debris contamination. 

Typically, the keypads use single-digit numerals as characters since there are a limitless potential number of strings. There is also the possibility of using the alphabet for even more potential combinations. Some keypads also allow the users to reassign the values of the buttons to have new input meanings. 

 The industrial control keypad serves as a sophisticated security and user control tool for companies. Allen-Bradley is one of the finest brands on the market for these solutions.
