The E50 industrial grade trackball

Posted by Daniel Burke | 07 September 2016

The E50 Series desktop trackball is an extremely high specification device that incorporates the latest IP68 technology. The trackball combines the patented optical trackball technology with the new hall-effect scroll wheel to provide a fully waterproof desktop trackball solution.

To compliment these two technologies the trackball also includes left, middle, and right switch functionality as found in all conventional
desktop trackballs/mice making the E50 trackball a complete human
interface solution for control of a cursor.

In the standard configuration the E50 Series is supplied with a black soft touch case, USB and PS/2 output, and a grey scroll wheel.
The ergonomical trackball is available as desktop or as panel mount unit. The freestanding desktop device optimises desk space when compared to a mouse. The panel mount unit has been designed as part of OEM keyboards and consoles.
