The QuickLink simply plugs in between the keyboard and display. The input data is decoded and transmitted to the display as if it were keyed. The keyboard remains active at all times.

Simple programming via menus allows the user to customize the unit to match the keyboard input required by their present software. The user can verify the input data to inhibit invalid data, as well as format the data to match screen input. The QuickLink is designed to eliminate as much as possible the manual entry of data.
