Electrone 735 Numeric keypad for Global Spec

Electrone America’s proven 735 keypad is a unique, low-cost product that can solve a wide variety of network communication problems. The keypad is ideal for all industries—any environment that requires entering ID numbers, linking hardware with someone’s software, or wants a numeric display for confirmation of data. Most importantly for those entering identification numbers, a usb number keypad that feedbacks and gives confirmation as to what had been entered is of paramount importance.

Electrone Americas realizes that each organization has specific requirements when searching the market for an appropriate product. That’s why Electrone America’s keypads are versatile and flexible enough to work with most existing software.

For martial arts studios in particular, which attract a range of clientele, programmable keyboards adroitly fulfill the function of monitoring attendance. For example, The Shuyokan Ryu Martial Arts Center in California approached Electrone for a keypad solution to tracking attendance that wouldn’t require a barcode scanner and that would make sure that card ID entered was correct. 

David Dye, the owner of the studio, was clear about what he needed for optimal efficiency: a numeric keypad with a display so the student can see the numbers as entered, with a backspace key to correct errors. Once the number was inputted accurately, Dye wanted an Enter or Green button to enter the number into the software program.


“Above all, I needed it to be kept simple,” says Dye, “so that a seven-year-old could use it without problems. Electrone Americas was the only company I found that could do what I wanted my hardware to do. They were very helpful, and as soon as I plugged their keypad in, it worked, and alleviated the need for having a second computer.”

The virtues of a USB keypad with display

User-friendly and cost-efficient keypads suit a wide variety of applications. They are a match made in
heaven for health clubs, gyms, and yoga and martial arts studios. For martial arts studios in particular,
which tend to attract a younger clientele, a keypad with display offers an easy—and forgiving—
solution to monitoring attendance.

Here is a telling example of how a keypad with display can fulfill a need like nothing else. David Dye,
the operator of Shuyokan Ryu Martial Arts Center in Costa Mesa, California, needed a way his
students, who start at age seven, could enter their ID number directly into the Martial Arts Organizer
software program. His software provider, martialarts organizer.com, offered some hardware on their
site, but no key pads. Martial arts organizer offered a bar code scanner, which was more expensive and
complex, requiring students to remember their cards and scan them properly. They was also the option
of an off-the-shelf keypad, which Dye tried, but the problem with that was if a number was entered
wrong, there was no way of fixing the mistake. Another child's number, or a nonexistent number, would
be counted on the attendance record.

Dye was clear about what he needed for optimal efficiency: a numeric keypad with a display so the
student can see the numbers as entered, with a backspace key to correct errors. Once the number was
inputted accurately, Dye wanted an Enter or Green button to enter the number into the software
program. “Above all, I needed it to be kept simple,” says Dye, “so that a seven-year-old could use it
without problems. Electrone Americas was the only company I found that could do what I wanted my
hardware to do. They were very helpful, and as soon as I plugged their keypad in, it worked, and
alleviated the need for having a second computer.” Electrone America's USB HID keypad saved the
day— and the dojo— with a cost-effective, intuitive to use and self-contained solution to an automatic
attendance system.

The 735 usb number keypad with display suits numerous market requirements for different needs.
Electrone Americas Ltd., Co. has created a keypad that will offer high quality solutions across all
industries. Take advantage of the 735 USB and TCP/IP Numeric Keypads for your business’s needs
