  • Description

    Description-

    Punch in your secret key into this numeric matrix keypad. This keypad has 12 buttons, arranged in a telephone-line 3x4 grid. It's made of a thin, flexible membrane material with an adhesive backing (just remove the paper) so you can attach it to nearly anything. The keys are connected into a matrix, so you only need 7 microcontroller pins (3-columns and 4-rows) to scan through the pad. Check the tutorials tab for links to an Arduino library and example code.

    We include a 7-pin extra-long header strip so you can plug this into a breadboard with ease.

    There is a very nice Matrix Keypad Arduino library that works great with this item. The only thing we suggest is to change the initialization code in the examples to this:

    #include "Arduino.h"
    #include "Keypad.h"
    
    const byte ROWS = 4; //four rows
    const byte COLS = 3; //three columns
    char keys[ROWS][COLS] = {
      {'1','2','3'},
      {'4','5','6'},
      {'7','8','9'},
      {'*','0','#'}
    };
    byte rowPins[ROWS] = {8, 7, 6, 5}; //connect to the row pinouts of the keypad
    byte colPins[COLS] = {4, 3, 2}; //connect to the column pinouts of the keypad
    
    Keypad keypad = Keypad( makeKeymap(keys), rowPins, colPins, ROWS, COLS );
    

    This will swap the * and # keys and also let you connect to the Arduino to match this image
