Summagrid V is the next generation of economical, large format tablets. These tablets provide higher accuracy, a sleeker ergonomical design, improved Windows software drivers, and a new user friendly setup program-no more dip switches! Summagrid V is an ideal choice for CAD/CAM, GIS mapping, or any application that requires a large format tablet.

Summagrid V is supplied with three pointing device options-a 4-button cursor, 16-button cursor, and a 2-button, click tip pen-available in both corded and cordless versions. Although these devices provide a new, more ergonomical design, they retain the familiar keypad layout Summagraphics users prefer.

These sturdy, adjustable stands provide a wide range of height and tilt settings to give the digitizer user a comfortable, non-fatiguing work area. Height adjustment ranges from 35.5 in (90.2 cm) to 49.13 in (124.8 cm) and tilt may be adjusted to provide an angle from zero (horizontal) to 80 degrees..
