Focus 40 Blue Generation 5

$4,070.00

The newly improved Focus® 40 Blue, the most RUGGED portable Braille Display available, has been tested to rigorous standards.


The new Focus 40 Blue combines the latest Braille technology, the most user friendly keyboard and control layout, and both USB and Bluetooth connectivity in an extremely lightweight and compact design.

 

This fifth generation of the Focus Braille Display line incorporates our vast knowledge base from manufacturing and servicing displays in the previous designs. The new housing is an aluminum extrusion on a steel base. Each Braille cell is physically isolated from its neighbors. The housing incorporates bumpers that absorb shock when the unit is dropped or knocked against a wall or door. The durable unit has been drop-tested to US Military Standard MIL-STD-810G.

 

A single smooth cell cap covers the Braille, so you feel only the Braille pins, no seams. Special attention has been paid to the dot keys and spacebar to ensure smooth positive feedback and quiet operation. The Braille pins have been retooled to provide a crisper, more uniform feel that you’ll notice with your first reading.
