VERNON, NY, February 16, 2023
– Key Digital®, an award-winning developer and manufacturer of
leading-edge digital video processing and video signal distribution solutions,
has updated its popular KD-WP8 keypad. The newly updated KD-WP8-2 is an eight-button
web-UI-programmable IP control wall plate keypad that fits into a single-gang
wall box and is PoE powered.
KD-WP8-2 has a clean, unintimidating appearance and intuitive operation that belies
the depth of its capabilities,” says DeWayne Rains, Key Digital VP of Sales.
“With no-code programming, buttons can be set up for the user that let them
choose a function or set-up with the touch of a button to trigger a background
salvo of commands for source selection and configuration parameter management. The
KD-WP8-2 delivers complete simplicity for the operator and the installer, with
amazing sophistication – and it’s cost-effective.”
keypad can control any IP-networked Key Digital device. Control extends to
third-party systems through the Compass Control® Pro protocol, user-friendly
Open API support, or the WP8-2’s now integrated IR output and RS-232 port. The KD-WP8-2 natively sends TCP and UDP
commands in ASCII or HEX format for controlling IP-enabled devices, without the
need for any additional hardware. Its now-native IR and RS-232 capability can
be extended to control devices or additional IR and RS-232 devices may be
controlled through integration with one or more of Key Digital’s family of
master controllers, adding additional IR, RS-232 and voltage relay control
KD-WP8-2 is programmed by a simple web GUI walkthrough of network settings,
button configuration, and event selection, with project import and export,
which makes it easy to set up multiple control points or duplicate a system. By
way of virtual event keypad access, programmed events are also accessible via web
UI, free Windows PC KDMS™ Pro and iOS KD-App software.
command stacking allows up to 10 commands on button press and release/repeat,
for up to 20 events per button and 160 events total and a two-button press
combo may be set to lock and unlock the keypad. Buttons can be programmed for
various latching or momentary action modes and red or blue LED backlighting.
Button cap icon sheets are provided, along with a template for custom printing.
Key Digital KD-WP8-2 is shipping from stock at an MSRP of $425. (USD).
