Notes

Comparison with Clare and Pendar reed switches gives an approximate weight (allowing for differing preloads) 180–200 cN, which is well above M9 space bar 120 cN.

Separate testing with Tai-Hao APC BSW 280WH and MX Linear Grey suggests full travel force of around 260 cN and preload of 100 cN, which again comes to around a 170–180 cN actuation.

In addition, the slider is 2 mm shorter, giving the switch a total height of 27.3 mm (keystem to PCB) instead of 29.3 mm.

Sourced from green-squid and comes from a Royal/Alpha Satellite II typewriter keyboard.
