View Full Version : Numerical Keypad?

02-08-2005, 02:06 AM
Does anyone know of a keypad which has a decimal point key on it. I need to get a numerical·input from the keypad,·which is accurate up to 4 decimal places, and use it to control motor steps to the nearest degree.

Thank You.

Type in a number, say 1236250, then when it is in the stamp, shift over the decimal point..
So an input would be 3 places of degrees then the parts of a degree to the 4th place.
Any keypad can work then. You just need to recode program to adjust.

Or you could simply use a standard keypad, and assign a key to be the decimal point.· If you really wanted to you could scratch off the letter 'E' off from one except the bottom right part of the 'E' to look like a decimal point.· Or they have keypads with changeable labels under the keys.
