DAT/EM Keypad - Overview
DAT/EM Systems has designed a reprogrammable touchpad as a replacement for the Polytel Keyport 300, which is no longer being manufactured. Unlike the Polytel Keyport, the DAT/EM Keypad is not DOS-based; it was engineered for use with the newest MicroSoft Operating Systems. The DAT/EM Keypad includes a convenient user interface for easily setting button functions.
