Beam Wireless Switch Interface

Connect up to 3 adaptive switches wirelessly to HeadMouse Extreme and Swifty Switch Interface
Item # Product Description Photo Price

Intended Users

The Beam is generally used by those with adaptive switches that wish to break the hard connection between the switch and Swifty. Often this is a power wheelchair owner that wants independence from an attendant for connecting and disconnecting his or her switch.

For a Swifty user, the Beam sends up to 3 button events that Swifty interprets as mouse buttons, joystick, buttons, or keyboard keys based on Swifty configuration.

The Beam uses low power infrared light to communicate with the Swifty much like a television remote control. A receiver is built into Swifty and is located under the window in the overlay.

The switch jacks accept industry standard adaptive switches, which use 1/8-inch (3.5-mm) plugs. Single and dual switches with mono or stereo plugs may be used with Beam. For example, our Sip/Puff Switch may be used with one cable to the Beam for left and right mouse buttons.

Swifty includes an integrated wireless receiver. With Beam, our available infrared transmitter, someone can use adaptive switches without being tethered to the computer. Beam also has an additional input for up to 3 adaptive switches.
