Description 

The Savant Elite2 now features Kinesis' proprietary SmartSet configuration application, which makes programming the device to output single key actions, keybaord shortcuts, text macros, and mouse clicks incredibly quick and easy. Both PC and Mac OS X versions of the SmartSet App come preloaded on all new Savant Elite2 devices (Serial Numbers 30000 and higher), and no special drviers are required. For SE2 foot pedals with SN's under 30000 the SmartSet app can be provided at no charge by contacting Kinesis Tech Support. 

Savant Elite2 line of programmable foot pedals are powerful tools, as they allow the user to offload repetitive keyboard or mouse actions from the hands to feet. Heavy-duty typists like authors, transcirptionists, and software engineers know that when the hands and feet are working in conjunction, comfort and productivity are boosted. Foot pedals are also popular for hands-free computer applications, such as call centers, medical/dental imaging, multimedia recording/presentation, assistive learning, and industrial control. 

Ergonomic Features:

Activate Mouse Clicks

All Savant Elite2 foot switches are pre-programmed to activate right and left mouse clicks, plus a middle mouse button action where a third pedal or input is present. For many users the pain associated with mousing is from the action of clicking, not from moving the mouse. The Savant Elite2 resolves this problem by reloacting the clicking action to the user's feet.

Program Any Key Action

Reprogram the foot switch to activate any key action(s). Perfect for offloading work from an overused finger or hand. Some of the more commonly used key actions are Shift, Tab, Enter, Backspace and Delete.

Create Macros

Macros are a great productivity tool for generating commonly used phrases, or combination of key actions and modifiers. With a memory pool of 1200 characters per device the Savant Elite will support even the most demanding of tasks.

Specifications

  • Two pedals factory configured to perform mouse button actions (Left pedal = left button, Right pedal = right button).
  • Pedals are front-hinged and rounded for easy-triggering, made from black, glass-reinforced nylon.
  • Pedals are adjustable
  • Low profile design, combined with heavy steel base prevents unit from accidentally moving on the floor.
  • Re-programmable to perform keyboard actions, macros, or to re-assign mouse button actions.
  • External status LEDs
  • Recessed programming switch from underside of unit.
  • Modular design is upgradeable and supports simple repairs if necessary.

Compatibility:

Windows

  • Available USB port. Uses generic drivers provided by the operating system (Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, Vista & 7).
  • Compatible with Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, XP, Vista & 7.
  • A CD-ROM is available for a minimal charge. Driver not compatible with 64 bit versions of XP, Vista and 7.
  • Only Windows 2000, XP, Vista & 7 offer full functionality of mouse clicks.

*NOTE: For Vista & Windows 7, save the xkeys programming driver to your desktop. Right click the xkeys icon and select properties. Click the Compatibility tab and check the box that says, "Run this program in compatibility mode for" Windows XP. Click Apply and proceed to install xkeys driver.

Macintosh
· Available USB port. Uses generic drivers provided by the operating system (OS 8.6 - 10.X)
· Only OS X offers full functionality of left and right mouse clicks. Middle mouse button not supported on Macintosh without using a third party driver.

· Note: Modifier actions from one USB device cannot modify the input of a second USB device due to limitations designed into the Apple operating system.

Linux, Sun and other Non Windows Platforms
· Available USB port. Uses generic drivers provided by the operating system. Due to the heterogeneity in these platforms, we cannot guarantee compatibility with these systems. However, if your system can use any USB mouse and keyboard, it will probably work with a Savant or Savant Elite foot switch.
· Re-programming drivers are not available for these systems. The user is advised to re-program the foot switch on a Windows-based PC system.
· Mouse click actions may not be supported on these systems. However, based on our limited experience with these platforms we have yet to encounter any incompatibility issues.

Dental

  • The Savant Family of foot switches are used extensively with Intraoral Radiography hardware and software including Kodak's (Practice Works) TROPHY RVGui Digital Radiography System and Softdent Software.
