Enterpad (turnkey)


System requirements

The Enterpad requires a free USB port on a computer to connect. It is compatible with most operating systems (Windows, Mac OS, Linux, DOS) but some tools and functions are only available to users of Windows 7 and higher.

How to install the Enterpad

Connect the Enterpad to a free USB port on the computer. If a USB hub is being used, connect the Enterpad to the hub.

The operating system will automatically detect the Enterpad (normally < 15 seconds). Once detected, a notification will appear in the taskbar near the clock. The Enterpad will then be ready to use.

Layout of keys on the Enterpad

Key #1 is located at the top left corner and key #120 is at the bottom right corner. The "shift" key (#111) of the Enterpad adds 120 more to the key number. Key #1 then becomes key #121, and so on. This provides 110 additional keys (number). It is not possible to use the keys #231 to 240 (located on the bottom row) for shortcuts, because they define the behavior of the Enterpad itself.

A shortcut can be set on key #111 even though it is used as the "shift" key. Unlike the other keys, the shortcut will be executed when it is released if, of course, another key has not been pressed before it was released.

Overlay sheet

The Enterpad comes with an overlay sheet showing its 120 hotkeys. The overlay sheet is protected with a plastic cover. To reach the overlay sheet, lift the plastic cover by the tab located on the bottom center.

How to install an update

There are many ways to update your Enterpad. According to your situation, your turnkey expert will suggest the best way to update your Enterpad.

Internal operations of the Enterpad

By default, the 10 keys on the bottom row of the Enterpad are used like other keys. This chapter explains how (and why) they can be used to do double-duty.

Shift key

The Shift key on the Enterpad enables the user to have access to 110 more keys and to control 9 internal functions on the Enterpad.

It is similar to the shift key on a PC keyboard. When it is pressed, the user has access to keys #121 through 240. In other words, "Shift-key #1" is identified by the configuration file as key #121, and so on up to the key #230. Keys #232 to 240 control the internal functions of the Enterpad.

The Enterpad Shift key has a special feature that the Shift key on a standard keyboard does not have. It works just like the other Enterpad keys if pressed, and then released without pressing another key. Unlike the other keys, its shortcut is executed when it is released.

So, the Shift key may be used like any other key; it can be used in the Shift mode or both ways at a time.

Adjust beep volume

With the Shift key, three keys can be used to set the beep volume.

The choices are HI for loud, MED for medium and LO for low. The most recent setting will be held in memory until changed, even if the power is turned off.

Load confirmation required

This setting is not relevant for the turnkey Enterpad. You can get more information with the instruction manual of the standard Enterpad.

How to choose one of two layers

The Enterpad can store up to two layers of shortcuts in its memory. By pressing one of the two keys, 1 or 2 in the Shift mode, the user is able to select which layer will be active. The layer 1 will be the default layer when the computer is powered on.

To empty the Enterpad buffer

The ESC key, when used in Shift mode, allows you to empty the Enterpad internal buffer (i.e., every Enterpad key pressed that is waiting to be processed will be cleared).
