In Search of a Keyboard

I'm looking for an industrial keyboard that I can surface-mount in an Operator's Enclosure. It should be heavy duty and connect via a USB cable.

Anybody have experience with a particular make/model of such a beast?

Thanks.
Steve

When I've had to provide a panel-mount keyboard, I've gone with these monsters from Hope Industrial Products:

In general I prefer to weatherproof the USB plug or cable, and use an all-but-disposable office grade or keyboard.

I don't like the flexible "Virtually Indestructible keyboard" and it looks like Logitech has discontinued their "washable" K310 keyboard.

I put a K310 on a shelf in a filthy, grit-showered machine tool application and it's still going strong a couple years later.

Thanks Ken. It looks like that P90 from Hope Industrial is just the ticket.

I haven't personally used any QWERTY keyboards from Storm, but I have experience with their other keypad products and can recommend them.
