The conventional computer keyboard is one of the main home for germs. They grow and can move on to user of device. The infection can pass easily from person to person. It has been shown that, after telephone and smart phone, the conventional computer keyboard is one of the mains homes for germs that nestle between the keys. They become impossible to remove (Dr Gary Noskin, expert in epidemiology-Northwestern Memorial Hospital of Chicago 2005). Data-input devices are critical « places ». They are used by many people and therefore conductive to the spread of hand-to-hand infections. Thus, IT workstations can become a veritable breeding ground for germs. Bacteria move into free space (between the keys, CPU vents or joints in screens…), where they grow and can move on to the user of the device. The infection can then pass easily from person to person.

A perfectly smooth and impregnable touch-sensitive keyboard, developed by Tactys, is the mostdurable and most effective solution in the fight against infectious risks.

TACTYS keyboards are specially dedicated to the following environment :

  • Medical to fight against the nosocomial infections : operating rooms, urgency, orthopedic services…
  • Laboratory
  • Clean rooms
  • Food industry
    The tightness (IP65) of the keyboards make them adapted to powdered environment. Capacitive technology unlike for mechanical keyboard implies no electrical contact that could start an explosion in powdery field. That is why they satisfy the explosion proof needs in petrochemistry or other site with high powder concentration (like grain silo for example).

TACTYS is a french company which invented the tactile glass keyboard in 2004. We gained a great experience and remained a pure player company on capacitive-based technology.
In our laboratory the TACTYS engineers develop also customized keyboards and HMI (Human Machine Interface) applications from the client specifications.

Our products are 100% french.

TAPTOP function make the typing easier. TapTop target the good key even if the finger placement is approximative.Typing on a plane surface can be tricky because you don't feel the mechanical sensation of pushing the key. An adjustable signal tone indicate the keystroke. Sometimes, even on a standard keyboard, the finger strikes two keys together and thus two characters are wrote on the screen. With TapTop function, the keyboard corrects those mistakes and provides a fluent and convenient typing.

La saisie sur une surface plane et rigide ne procure pas la sensation d’enfoncement d’une touche. Un retour sonore, réglable, indique la frappe. Il peut arriver, même sur les claviers à touches, que le doigt, à cheval sur 2 touches, provoque l’impression de 2 caractères à l’écran. Avec la fonction TAPTOP, même si le positionnement du doigt est approximatif le clavier tactile corrige automatiquement la frappe et évite l’activation involontaire de 2 touches voisines. Elle permet un confort de frappe fluide et précis.
