Switch collection NEC standard


Manufacturer NEC
Signalling type Metal contact
Deskthority wiki NEC oval


The term “standard” is simply to differentiate them from the rare metal-top switches and the NEC-branded SMK J-M0404 switches. No literature has been recovered on NEC keyboards or switches.

The slider cross section is a stadium, not an oval, but oval is catchier.
