Kessler-Ellis Products, a manufacturer of marine sunlight readable displays, said it was selected as the exclusive Americas distributor of NSI input devices.

KEP will sell and support NSI’s full line of keyboards and trackballs for recreational and commercial marine markets. Designed to deliver control and accuracy, NSI marine keyboards and trackballs are purpose-built to meet the demands of the saltwater environment.

The line offers ergonomic IEC 60945 type-approved devices that can be seamlessly integrated into existing systems without recertification. NSI keyboards feature dimmable backlighting and user-friendly layout selections with separate numerical, control and function keypads.

NSI trackballs are equipped with glass panel and touch keys and backlit with pulse width modulation dimming and RGB color control. The line also includes the world’s first trackballs with an integrated IP68 scroll wheel, ensuring that users can operate navigation software and scrolling-through applications safely in indoor and outdoor installations.

“NSI keyboards and trackballs are an exceptional addition to our highly rugged input device offerings,” KEP Marine vice president Keith Cariani said in a statement. “The entire line is manufactured with impeccable quality, form and function for the ultimate navigation control at the helm.”

NSI area sales manager Christof Groven touted KEP Marine’s established dealer and distributor network as the perfect gateway for NSI in the Americas market.

“They are a true innovator in the marine market, and we clearly share a commitment to providing technically advanced and reliable products to the marine industry,” Groven said in a statement.
