5250 & 3270 Style 122-Key Keyboards - Driverless
122-Key Keyboard for PCs & Thin Client Terminals

Driverless 122-Key 5250/PC and 3270/PC Keyboards for PCs and Thin Client Terminals - USB or PS/2


These 5250/PC and 3270/PC 122 key keyboards  can be used with any PC or Thin Client Terminal connected to Microsoft Windows Terminal Server or Citrix.  They are driverless keyboards, enabling them to be integrated smoothly in all operating systems.  As a result, organizations can look forward to regaining the benefits of true terminal-style productivity.

These keyboards are available in multiple languages.  Please CLICK HERE to see a list of available languages and countries.

These 122-key keyboards provides a seamless transition from "dumb terminal" green screen terminals such as the IBM InfoWindow 347X, 348X and compatibles from Decision Data, Idea, Memorex, Telex, and Visara, and also from Ethernet Terminals such as Computer Lab international's ET2000.

When moving from the 122-key layout to a standard PC keyboard, there are over 30 new key combinations to be learned to perform the same tasks performed with a single keystroke on a Twinax or Coax terminal. This lack of familiarity can produce a big loss in production and excess errors that would not be occurring if the user had their old, familiar keyboard.

With the 5250/PC and 3270/PC 122-key keyboards, there is virtually no retraining when moving users from the old "dumb" terminals to new Ethernet connected devices, whether it be a PC or Thin Client Terminal. The user will have the same layout and heavy duty keystroke feel as on the terminals being replaced. No need to learn the new key combinations a standard PC keyboard would require.

These "clicky" keyboards are mechanical keyboards using an IBM designed key mechanism referred to as "buckling spring" (illustration at right).


This keyboard works perfectly in both the PC and Thin Client environments.

Any keys that have different functions are labeled with both functions.

The image at right is a portion of the 5250 keyboard and shows a number of the 5250 keys only the 122-key keyboards have such as F13 thru F24, New Line, Field Exit,  Enter, Rule, etc.  This keyboard also has keys such as Insert, SysReq, Erinp and others
