The Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet Attachable Keyboard is here

Data entry on the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet just became a lot faster with the addition of 54 powerful little buttons.

The Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet Attachable Keyboard by Juniper Systems is a lightweight, ergonomic solution for rapid data entry on the Mesa 2. The rugged keyboard, which was released Oct. 17, is designed for all-day use in the field.

Its ergonomic design weighs only half a pound and clicks into place – no tools necessary.

Powerful keyboard

The Mesa 2 Attachable Keyboard features 54 buttons, offering a full QWERTY keyboard with navigation arrows, a numeric keypad, and 98 possible inputs. The keyboard is backlit – powered by the Mesa 2 all-day battery – for those workdays that start early in the morning or go late into the night.

Rapid data entry on the Mesa 2 is now easier. Each button click provides instant tactile feedback to the user – and screen space on the 7-inch Mesa 2 display doubles with the digital keyboard turned off.

Configurable buttons? Yep, the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet has those

Rugged design

The Mesa 2 Attachable Keyboard, like the Mesa 2, is nothing less than Juniper Rugged. It is sleek, ergonomic, lightweight – yet, undeniably tough. The sturdy design is rated IP-68 and MIL-STD-810G, making it dustproof, waterproof, and shockproof.

In freezing and scorching temperatures, users can still work – gloves or no gloves. Work can be tough and weather can be unforgiving, but the Mesa 2 Attachable Keyboard is tougher.

The keyboard comes with a one-year warranty from Juniper Systems.

Intuitive installation

The Mesa 2 Attachable Keyboard simply clicks into place without tools. This allows users to attach and detach the keyboard on the fly. The intuitive keyboard design features two small pins that slide into alignment holes, connecting the keyboard to the Mesa 2 docking pins.

In addition, two index marks help align the keyboard with the Mesa 2.

Here’s how to shut off the digital keyboard on the Mesa 2

To shut off the digital keyboard on a Window 10 Mesa 2, go to Keyboard Setting and scroll to the option that says, “Show the touch keyboard when not in tablet mode and there’s no keyboard attached.” Set it to “off.”


The Mesa 2 Attachable Keyboard can have attachments, too. Its design does not block any of the Mesa 2’s accessory attachment points. The keyboard includes the standard AMPS hole pattern for attaching the device to pole mounts or other accessories.
