Hand Reader Enclosures
provides a full line of enclosures to protect your HandKey terminals from the
elements. Three different, proven solutions are available to ensure your hand
reader performs and keeps performing regardless of your environment.
Ideally suited for the coldest climates and industrial environments, the
Blizzard enclosure is constructed of heavy-gauge zinc-coated steel and features
a weather-sealed keypad, low temperature display and heated interior. Even
though it protects from incident rain and weather, the unit should be mounted
under an enclosure or awning. The Blizzard enclosure is a fully integrated unit
and comes complete with HandKey terminal and internal heater.
A little rain never hurt anyone, and a lot of rain won’t hurt the Hurricane
enclosure. Constructed from high-impact ABS plastic, the unit is designed for
direct weather. A generous lid offers protection from driving rain, and the
contoured design facilitates water runoff. The Hurricane has been designed so it
can be added to an existing installation. When used with a heater-equipped hand
reader (INT-HTR option), it provides the ultimate solution for cold weather,
direct exposure environments.
For the harshest environments, the Tsunami enclosure is water sealed and built
to NEMA type 4 standards. The HandKey terminal is protected from both splashing rain
and hose-directed water, making it an ideal solution for industrial and food
processing areas where hose-directed water is used for cleaning. In addition,
when used with a heater-equipped hand reader (INT-HTR option), the Tsunami
enclosure can withstand the bleakest of environments.
Integrated Heater Option
The INT-HTR option includes an integrated heating element, a 24v power supply
and an extended range LCD. The temperature-regulated heater element is built
into the platen, where users place their hand, providing comfortable and
trouble-free use even in the coldest environments. The heater is built directly
into the HandKey terminal. Therefore, it must be ordered at the same time the hand
reader is ordered and is not field-retrofittable.
Although intended primarily for use with an enclosure, the INT-HTR option may be
used in cooler environments where an enclosure is not required, such as an
