    Class I Div I wireless mouse.

    Hi all,
    Can you have a HMI (AB) in a sealed XP enclosure, with a wireless USB connected, for using a mouse externally?
    Or is there an industrial Class 1 Div 1 mouse available, all I have been able to find is keyboard/mouse combo.

    Yes. Not sure how this will help you any though as the USB receiver and mouse would need to be in an unclassified area.

    I doubt you will find an XP mouse. I seem to recall seeing IS mice though.
    A lot depends on just what it is you are trying to do. An external mouse w/o a keyboard is kind of an unusual thing.

    Thanks for the reply petersonra.
    The application doesn't necessarily need a keyboard, just a way for the operator to navigate the HMI.
    Our previous HMI was set up so the operator had an up/down selector switch to change values.
    This newer design doesn't allow such a simple set up.
    Hence the use of a mouse. On rethinking, because the mouse would have a battery, that would be a no no.
