I doubt Elliott-Williams is in the business of making keypads. Whose controller is it?

I highly doubt that Elliott williams made the keypad either. But I'd imagine that they would be willing to sell me another one. It's a simple ribbon cable that plugs into the main circuit board. It has 4 or 5 membrane switches on the keypad, which glues onto the front panel. The ribbon cable is what went bad and I could not find anybody around town to repair it. I need to get the keypad replaced so I can change the setpoints.
The equipment is located inside of a correctional facility kitchen and I believe one of the inmates changed the setpoint to 32, which is causing the milk to freeze. I am wanting to raise it back up to 38.
I've unplugged the ribbon cable from the main board and used t-stat wire to jump the pins, but it is so sensitive and hard to toggle through the programming. I need a new keypad.

If you can find a (real-not radio shack) electronics store, and know how many conductors you need, you can buy ribbon cable and IDC connectors and make it yourself.
I do it all the time with EIL and CPC ribbons that go bad.

I may have mis-spoke. The "ribbon cable" is green in color and looks like a printed circuit board, only it's flexible. One of the circuits rubbed off.
Our electronics guy could probably repair it. He's on vacation until 1-5-09.
I can't believe Elliott-Williams is so difficult to locate.

We ended up using some spare membrane switches and some ribbon cable to make up a temporary keypad. The walk in is working fine now that the setpoints have been changed.
Thanks for all the suggestions.

Elliott-Williams is out of business:eek: and has been for a couple of years now. I believe they originally went bankrupt, got bought and ran for a little bit longer before the ship sank. They were based here in Indy. Despised tearing the old boxes apart because the threaded rods inside the walls would rust and you could not easily remove the nuts holding panels together. Made it a real pain to take down and rebuild if a customer bought a used box or just wanted it moved.
