Selection Guide Useful hints and tips
for selecting and using your trackball
Selecting your trackball: For
office, education, library, military, light industrial or home
use. For specialised application software,
air traffic control, process control, etc.
Select models: X-Keys O-Trac Black or Beige (CST MaxTrac), X-Keys O-Trac Primary (CST Max KidTrac), or X-Keys L-Trac 1600 Black, X-Keys L-Trac 1600 Glow Blue or Glow Red.
Interface Select: USB or PS/2.
Choose your colour: black, beige or primary.
Needs: all our trackballs are robust, smooth scrolling and easy to control. With their big buttons and large ball 2¼ inch
ball (the size of a pool-table ball), they are are
highly suitable for special needs applications.
The X-Keys O-Trac Primary with its large coloured buttons is a great success in schools and
special needs centres.
The trackballs take less space than a mouse mat and are stable enough for people to use their feet to operate.
Strain Injury:The X-keys trackballs with their large
buttons, large ball and palm rest enables different parts of the hand to be
used, thus providing a change of posture and operating method to reduce the RSI cramp. It also enables the user to control the cursor directly and point and
select with comfort, precision and speed.
The relaxed posture
which the trackballs provide, also prevents an RSI
Serious Gamers: X-Trac L-Trac 1600 cpi, or X-Trac L-Trac Glow Backlit trackballs, with scroll wheel, are seriously
high performance fast dynamic trackballs.
Scroll feature allows effortless
scrolling on web pages and large documents. Just press and hold
the center button for three seconds to activate scrolling. Click
any button to exit scroll mode (some models require loading included
software for this feature).
Dynamic Gain feature allows
you to accelerate the cursor exponentially as you roll the ball
faster. Roll the ball slowly for single pixel accuracy.
Drag Lock lets you drag
and drop without holding down a button. The center button, when
clicked once, tells the system to select and hold the object until
another button is clicked which releases the object.
Self-Cleaning: If the ball
begins to feel rough after some use, spin the ball very fast in
several directions. This will usually eject any dirt from the
surface of the rollers. See manual for further information involving
turning trackball upside down to remove 3 screws then back up
again before removing the case. You can also replace the ball
with an American pool table ball, it's the same size, for customizing
Replacing worn or bent rollers
- same as cleaning the ball: you might need to change the stainless
steel rollers in 5 or 6 years time, just email
us with your address.
Switching left to right hand
use - hold down for 3 seconds.
Driver not required - uses
MS mouse driver in the kernel of the operating system.
Superior-X Button Control software (included), allows the user to set different button settings on
any button, depending on the application. This allows control of
applications, such as media players, directly from the trackball
(volume control via scroll wheel, etc.), putting maximum control
at your fingertips. Superior-X also allows keystrokes to be recorded
and played back with the click of a button, allowing repetitive
application tasks to be completed quickly. This performance coupled
with the natural contour of the L-Trac, makes these trackballs a
must for all applications including general computing, gaming and
Computer Aided Design (CAD). CAD users love it because you can drag
a line one pixel even on today's high resolution displays of 1900X1080.
Then, with a button stroke, they can fly around the screen to get
general tasks done. Game players have called it an "Almost
unfair advantage", citing the fingertip control and precision,
high performance tracking.
