PCB Keyswitches

Short-travel keyswitches (actuation travel typically 0.5 mm) are usually used in keyboards under an overlay or under keycaps. The main RAFI short-travel keyswitch families are:

  • MICON 5
  • RACON 8
  • RACON 12
  • RF 15
  • RF 19
  • KN 19

Full-travel keyswitches are pushbuttons for PCB mounting with typical keystroke of 4 mm, designed for use on keyboards with keycaps, similar to PC keyboards. The following RAFI product families are currently available:

  • RS 76M Full-travel keyswitch (mechanical contact system)
  • RS 76C Full-travel keyswitch (contactless contact system with Hall IC)

If you would like to incorporate RAFI keyswitches into one of your systems, please get in touch with us to discuss your project in more detail.  We have over 20 years of experience of providing custom and bespoke HMI solutions.

MICON 5

The MICON 5 short-travel keyswitch sets the benchmark in miniaturisation while safeguarding switching reliability and excellent tactile and acoustic properties.

In membrane keyboards, in operating panels or under keycaps, the MICON 5 leaves great freedom to your designers and offers to your customers the switching reliability that lasts for a product's life.

With a footprint of only 5.1 x 6.4 mm, the MICON 5 excels by its minimum dimensions, superior tactile properties and a sealed contact system with gold contacts. This makes it ideally suited for the most sophisticated applications just as for the most severe conditions of use.
