Mighter Multi-Protocol SPOT Dealing Keyboard - 4060

The MPKB 4060 keyboard is designed specifically for use on the SPOT, Fixed Income traders and FX trader’s desktop.

It provides a logical replacement for those aging Dealing 3000, AHK3000, EK and HK2000 dealing keyboards, with logically laid out single keyboard solution for all major information services avoiding the use of complex multiple function keys. All major market-data service keys are provided as standard together with dedicated selection keys for up to six services.

The keyboard has been designed to integrate fully with the Mighter range of switching and driving products, with Reuters Dealing 3000, EBS and 4 PC’s, but can also be used with other PS/2, Sun, and Reuters system units.

Desk clutter and the associated stress factor is reduced. Market Dealing / Data may be shared with contended control between dual users with the associated cost savings (License agreements permitting)
