Affirmative 1221TD
122-Key Keyboard for PCs & Thin Client Terminals

Driverless 122-Key 5250/PC Keyboard
for PCs and Thin Client Terminals


The Affirmative 5250/PC 122 key keyboard can be used with any PC or Thin Client connected to Microsoft Windows Terminal Server or Citrix. It is driverless, enabling it to be integrated smoothly in all operating systems. As a result, organizations can look forward to regaining the benefits of true terminal-style productivity.

This 122-key keyboard provides a seamless transition from "dumb terminal" green screen terminals such as the IBM InfoWindow 3476, 3477, 3486, 3487, 3488 and compatibles from CLI, Decision Data, I-O Corporation, Idea, Memorex and Praim.

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 terminal.  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.

With the Affirmative 122-key keyboard, there is virtually no retraining when moving users from the old Twinax terminals to the new Ethernet 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.

Any keys that have different functions are labeled with both functions.  The 5250 keys are labeled in black, jus like a Twinax terminal.  Any PC functions are labeled in blue.
