Affirmative Keyboards - 122-Key & 104-Key
Keyboards for PCs, Thin Clients and "Dumb" Terminals

5250-Style and 3270-Style Keyboards for PCs, Thin Client Terminals, and "Dumb" Terminals

Overview

Affirmative Technology Group provides a full line of 5250-style and 3270-style keyboards for PCs, Thin Client Terminals and "Dumb" Twinax and Ethernet Terminals.

Note your typical low grade PC-type keyboards, but heavy duty commercial grade keyboards with molded in keyboard legends and IBM terminal-type tactile "clicky" feedback keys on most models.

There are different models for almost any PC/terminal/Thin Client application.  Click here for a list and description of all available models.

When moving from the 122-key layout to a standard PC keyboard, there are up to 36 new key combinations to be learned to perform the same tasks performed with a single keystroke on the Twinax or Coax terminal currently being used.  This lack of familiarity can produce a big loss in production and excess errors that would not be occurring if the user had their old, familiar keyboard.

Click here or on the image at right for a larger image of the 122-key keyboard layout.

With the Affirmative family of 122-key keyboard, there is virtually no retraining when moving users from the old "dumb" terminals to new connected device, whether it be a PC or Thin Client Terminal.  The user will have the same layout and heavy duty keystroke feel as on the terminals being replaced.  No need to learn the new key combinations a standard PC keyboard would require.

Advantages

Any keys that have different functions are labeled with both functions, Terminal and PC.  The keys that are common to both PC and 5250/3270 keys are labeled in black.  Any PC functions are labeled in blue.

The image at left shows this clearly as well as a number of the 5250 keys only the 122-key keyboards have such as New Line, Field Exit, Jump, Dup, Roll Up, Roll Down, etc.
