NEPTUN chrom®

Brand-New Integrated Keyboard for Airlines & Airports

NEPTUN chrom® is an integrated keyboard that can read passports, ID cards, visas and magnetic stripe cards such as customer loyalty cards. Apart from that it also withstands water and dust which makes it unique and the must-have keyboard for every check-in counter.

The entire keyboard, not only the key matrix but also the swipe slot at the back, is dust and water resistant according to IP54 regulations. This means that the NEPTUN chrom doesn´t mind a spilled glass of water. It remains fully intact even if water drops are running down the keys or the swipe slot. This unique feature will decrease downtimes and repair costs dramatically and makes sure that the NEPTUN chrom supports you 24/7.
