If you have SAP, Paxar VendorConnect, Pronto or any other ERP system where it is important to be able to press a function key with only one keystroke, then the 38 key keypad will be the best choice. The 28 and 48 key keypads require you to press the blue ‘FUNC’ key first, then let go, then press the appropriate key to get a function key. Therefore two keystrokes.

As you can see on the 38 key keypad, there are ten function keys, F1 to F10 available with only one keystroke.

If you choose the 48 key model you have to press the ‘FUNC’ key first, let go and then press ‘A’ for ‘F1’, ‘B’ for ‘F2’ etc and this slows down your workforce. The trade off with the 48 key keypad is that the alphas are easy to get to and the numbers are larger and at the top. If you need to do alot of alpha-numeric data entry this keyboard is always ready for alphas and numbers. The 28 and 38 key keypads are two state, either in alpha mode or numeric mode.

Motorola MC3100

The Motorola MC3100 series is a product refresh of the highly successful MC3000/MC3090 series. It shares the same three keyboard options so click on the buttons above to get the keyboard map you need for your telnet client.


Motorola MC9000/MC9090

The MC9000/MC9090 series comes in three form factors:

  • short brick
  • standard brick
  • pistol (gun) version

The MC9000’s we specialise in are the standard brick and gun versions and they have interchangeable keypads which come in 28, 43 and 53 key versions. To change keypads you simply undo the two philips head screws at the top of the keyboard, slide the keypad down and lift it up to swap it over. Warm boot after installing the new keyboard for it to be recognised by the MC9000. MC9060 keypads do not fit onto the MC9090 or vice versa due to the slight difference in shape.

For applications where you want one keystroke to access a function key you should choose the 43 key keyboard.
