Metal keypads/keyboards and control systems

Inox keypads

New product

APEM metal keypads/keyboards combine the highest level of resistance to vandalism (up to IK10) and a modern and visually attractive design.
Designed for the harshest environments, they are weather proof and can withstand most corrosive agents.
Metal keypads/keyboards have a modular construction which allows customization with a relatively short prototyping time. They are made of standard elements developed by APEM and can also integrate other components (joysticks, indicators, switches).

  • Modular construction based on standard V, PR and PQ series
  • Modern stainless steel/aluminum design
  • Long life
  • High resistance to harsh environments
  • On request, integration of specific electronics: protocols, USB interfaceÉ


  1. Uniform backlighting, no visual fatigue, choice of color
  2. Choice of shape and number of keys
  3. With or without frame
  4. Custom product at a reasonable price

Typical applications

For many years, APEM has produced metal keypads/keyboards for the following applications:

  1. Self-service machines (car park access, vending machines for transport tickets or other)
  2. Access control (interphonesÉ)
  3. Industrial automation (control panels, industrial remote controls...)
  4. High end products (cars, yachts, high tech, luxury...)
