What external keyboard can be used with Hach Spectrophotometers?
Summary
External keyboard part number for use with Hach Spectrophotometers
Answer
The keyboard that can be interfaced with the DR2700, DR2800, DR3800, DR3900, DR5000, and DR6000 is the USB Keyboard QWERTY (Catalog Number/Order Code LZV582). The instrument cannot be fully controlled by the keyboard. The keyboard will mimic the alphanumeric keypad available on the instrument's touchscreen for input purposes (Sample ID, Operator ID, etc).

There is not a keyboard option available for the DR1900 Portable Spectrophotometer. An external keyboard is typically connected through a USB Type A connector, which the DR1900 is not equipped with.
