USB Dome Button

 

The “USB Dome Button” is a large mushroom/dome button that connects to a workstation or PC via a USB cable. A press on the button sends a keystroke to the workstation. You can configure which keystroke that is. You can use the USB Dome Button to perform any command on the workstation: launch a presentation, start a show, pause or resume playback, function as a “Quiz Buzzer”, or any other action.

The dome is available in several colours.

USB Dome Button is recognized by the PC as a “keyboard” —with only a single key. Microsoft Windows (and other operating systems) have intrinsic support for these devices. The USB Dome Button runs out of the box, no driver is needed. The button is fully compatible with “Game Show Presenter” and similar applications.

Features

The USB Dome Button is a robust “emergency switch”-style button, for indoor and outdoor use. The sealing USB connector allows for splash-proof cable connection. Cables are available up to 4.5 metres. A “debounce” circuit avoids false triggering and an ESD protection filter on the USB input guarantees a reliable operation.

As mentioned above, the PC or workstation recognizes the USB Dome Button as a keyboard with one key. The key to transmit to the PC is configured via a free configuration utility, see the Downloads section. By default, the USB Dome Button transmits the key “1”.

Multiple Dome Buttons may be attached to a PC at the same time, with each Dome Button configured to transmit a different key code (when configuring the Dome Buttons, each button should be connected to the PC one at a time).
