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.
