Use the KE-USB24 to interface your keypads or switches to your PC's USB port to generate keystrokes. Any of the 24 signals on the KE-USB24 can be configured as a Row or Column in a matrix.

The KE-USB24 is programmed through the USB port of the PC using the programming application included with the unit. Once programmed, the configuration is stored on the KE-USB24 in non-volatile memory.

All power for the KE-USB24 is taken from the PC USB port, so no other voltage supply is required.
