The iKey FZ-G1 Jumpseat, a QWERTY keyboard with touchpad, interfaces via the tablet's USB 3.0 docking connector. Designed from the ground up to be rugged, the FZ-G1 Jumpseat is comprised of a magnesium case with a rubber keypad and is fully sealed to resist the dirt, dust, and spills that can ruin most keyboards. Additionally, the FZ-G1 Jumpseat keyboard includes an integrated multi-function touchpad that supports advanced gesturing actions.

iKey's FZ-G1 Jumpseat complements the Toughpad's integrated ten-point multi-touch screen and digitizer input, providing for expanded user convenience and improved typing accuracy and speed while enhancing ergonomics with uncompromised support and flexibility. The iKey FZ-G1 Jumpseat runs on an advanced Li-ion battery that lasts for two months under typical use and can easily be recharged via the tablet's USB port.  Red multi-level LED backlighting keeps users working in low-light environments. Additional functionality can be added to the FZ-G1 Jumpseat with options such as a fingerprint reader or additional full sized USB ports.
