Orbit Instrument Integrated Switch Panels: The Gold Standard for Rugged, Reliable, Long-Term Performance


Standard Interface ISPs

Orbit’s standard interface ISPs are designed for use in military airborne, shipboard, vehicular, mobile and fixed applications, as well as in commercial avionics and ruggedized industrial applications. Configured to meet customer specifications, our standard interfaces typically include: RS-232, RS-422, USB and an ‘Orbit standard’ that features a row/column output that can be connected to a system that will scan the matrix for key actuations. Orbits ISPs can be backlit with either monochromatic or multi-color system requirements, including  methods of dimming controls as required.
