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,

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.

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
Works flawlessly with both embedded and Citrix or Windows Terminal Server applications, since it also emulates 104-key keyboards
