Basalte Ships Chopin Mechanical Keypad

Early this year, Basalte introduced Chopin, their first mechanical keypad after 12 years of exclusively making touch-sensitive keypads. Today, Chopin is shipping worldwide for KNX as well as a low voltage dry contact closure version. 

In a way, using Chopin feels like playing the piano. Push the levers up and down to intuitively dim the lights, control the shades or let your favorite music enter the room. Hence the inspiration for this new keypad’s name: the genius piano composer Frédéric Chopin. 

The keypad’s front cover is available in the same high-end finishes as all other Basalte products, including aluminium, bronze, brass and more. The levers are available in 3 different finishes: black aluminium, chrome and gold plated. Altogether, this stunning collection offers the perfect Chopin keypad for any taste. 

Chopin keypads are available in a 1- and 2-gang version. Per gang, one or two levers are fitted, with or without an integrated RGB led. Furthermore, it is also possible to combine Chopin levers with minimalist Basalte sockets for a consistent and minimalist look. 

Today, Chopin is available to directly integrate with KNX systems. Moreover, it is also available as a low voltage momentary dry contact closure version to seamlessly integrate with any control system. More integrations with Crestron and Lutron HQSX are expected later on.
