GENERAL
The TA61-2 Keyboard
General
The TA61-2 keyboard has a keypad with maximum 60 usable keys. Except
for the numeric keys (0 to 9), the C key and the 0.00 key, the key layout is
flexible, i.e. any two contiguous keys can be replaced by a double key and
any four keys can be replaced by a quadruple key, either horizontally or
vertically.
The TA61-2 keyboard is equipped with a key switch with 6 switch positions
and is available with or without a swipecard reader.
A power-up reset and an automatic self-test are performed each time the
POS terminal is switched on. Following these self-tests, the keyboard is
ready for operation. The keyboard receives its power from the POS system.

KEYPAD
TA61-2 keyboard without swipecard reader
Keypad
In the TA61-2 keypad, two keys can be replaced by a double key and four
keys to form a quadruple key, either horizontally or vertically. Only one key
code is generated by each double or quadruple key. Different key codes can
be set for the multiple keys by rotating the key caps. These caps have a
actuating cylinder that is shifted when the cap is rotated, resulting in
different key codes.
Key caps can be changed on the spot using the key cap remover included in
the scope of supply. When using the key caps for multiple keys, note the
position of the pin on the underside, making sure that the desired code is
set.

KEY SWITCH
Key Switch
The TA6-2 keyboard is equipped with a key switch with 6 switch positions.
Switch position 0 is the basic position; switch positions 1-4 are provided for
customer-specific applications. In positions 0 and 1, the key can be
removed.

The key switch has only one closure, i.e.
there is only one set of keys for all
keylocks that includes the
above-mentioned key variants for the
various switch positions.
Note: For a better differentiation with
the TA61 and the TA61-1, the TA61-2
has a grey key switch and a different
key design!

SWIPECARD READER (OPTIONAL)
Swipecard Reader (optional)
The TA 61-2 is equipped with a swipecard reader (SCR) which enables all
tracks of the swipecard reader to be read simultaneously when the card is
swiped through once.
Using the Swipecard Reader
Pull the magnetic card through the slot of the swipecard reader evenly and
quickly as far as it will go from right to left. Make sure that the magnetic
stripe is horizontally facing the keys.
Note the following precautions when handling magnetic cards:
n Never allow magnetic cards to come into contact with liquids.
n Never bend or fold magnetic cards.
n Never expose magnetic cards to a magnetic field.
Insert the magnetic card in the special slot provided on the reader from the
right-hand side only; inserting the card at another location could damage the
read heads.
Cleaning Instructions
In order to ensure that the quality of reading results is maintained, clean the
swipecard reader at least once a week. To do this, use the special cleaning
card that can be ordered from Wincor Nixdorf.
Connection Method
The connector for the keyboard is a standard 6-pin mini-DIN connector.
The cable is 1 meter long. This cable
can be extended an additional 2 meters
by means of a standard cable that can
be ordered optionally.
11
SELF-TEST
Releasing the Cable Connection
Never remove a cable from a connector socket by simply pulling on the
cable. Always remove the cable by the connector housing. Please follow the
instructions below when removing cables:
n Switch off your POS system.
The mini-DIN connectors are left plugged in until unlocked.
Using your thumb, pull gently on plastik
connector housing, removing the
connector from the socket. This unlocks
the connector. The metal part of the
connector is now visible.
Now remove the connector from the
socket.
Self-Test
A self-test of the keyboard is performed each time the POS terminal is
switched on. During this test, the interface to the system is disabled. The
system is informed of the successful completion of the test.
