Abstract

A two-sided keyboard for a data terminal, shown in the figure, consists of a central box section 1 with two sloping surfaces 2a and 2b, shown in the end view, for the key layouts. The central box section 1 has end plates 3 shaped so that the keyboard may be turned over without depressing or damaging the keys. A cable 4 connects the keyboard to the data terminal (not shown).
