RS232 Serial Keypad


Manufacturer: Ortek

Part #: MCK-18S/N

Price: $25.00 USD each  


Add a keypad to your Rabbit project!


This serial keypad is powered from the RS232 port.  It transmits a character at 1200 baud for every key press.  The characters sent are not those on the keys, so character translation must be done in the Rabbit.  A different character is sent for key down and key up.


Here is a Nuts & Volts article describing how to replace the micro in the keypad with your own Parallax Basic Stamp PIC micro.  It gives some of the technical details of the keypad.

A disk with Windows drivers is included if you want to use the keypad with your PC.  Click for larger photo.
