The Latitude 12 Rugged Tablets have a IP-65 rated full-size keyboard dock as an optional ecosystem accessory.

IP stands for Ingress Protection. This is a series of ratings that define the different levels of effective sealing of electrical enclosures against intrusion.
The digit 65 indicates that this particular keyboard is enhanced with protection against dust and low pressure water jets.
The keyboard dock comes with a customisable backlit keyboard. The backlight can be set to a number of colours :
Use the Rugged Control Centre utility to set the keyboard backlight behaviour and to customise the colours.
Press the Fn + C keys repeatedly to cycle through the available backlight colours.
