HED Announces new CAN Keypad family

HED, Inc. (Hartford, WI, USA) has released the new CL-613/614 family of sealed CAN keypads.  This product, with an IP67 rating, is ideal for the harsh environment of off-highway applications, both inside and outside the cab.  The keypads have rubber membrane pushbuttons and utilize metal actuation domes for long life exceeding two-million actuations.  The product is offered in two standard form factors, 2x4 and 2x8.  Customers can select a variety of LED colors for each button or indicator.  LEDs are dimmable, both as indicators and icon backlights.  Icons are laser etched and customizable to customer specification, or available off-the-shelf as circular white icons. 

The CL-613/614 family provides the unique advantage of one onboard input (digital STB) and one sinking output.  The keypads communicate seamlessly through a single CAN port via J1939, CANOpen or HED’s CANLink protocol.  Buttons can be programmed to flash codes for simple troubleshooting and warning indications.  This product is designed to perform in off-highway applications including construction, ag and cranes. 

The 613/614 CAN keypad family is available for immediate purchase or sample evaluation.  For more information, contact Eddie Phillips, VP Sales & Marketing at or at 1-800-398-2224.
