RAFI now provides ring illuminations in various sizes which match their round, opaque plungers and serve to signal the operation of a keyswitch. Thereby, membrane keyboards under overlay based on RAFI’s MICON 5 micro Keyswitches can be assembled to fulfill individual requirements.
Homogenous illumination of the ring body is achieved by means of merely two LEDs. RGB LEDs can be used if required. Available with an overall height of 9.7 mm and diameters of 20.7, 23.7 and 28.2 mm, the ring illuminations are suitable for plungers with an 11.5, 14.5 or 19 mm diameter.
MICON 5 keyswitches have a 5.1 x 6.4 mm footprint and are 3.85 mm high, thus requiring minimal space. Due to gold contacts, they provide a high switching reliability. Outstanding tactility and a distinctly audible key click ensure high operating comfort. For various applications requiring a range of different operating forces, RAFI supplies MICON 5 models with 3, 4.5, 5.5, or 8 N.
RAFI guarantees a long operating life for all devices: depending on the selected operating force, the Keyswitches endure between 250,000 and one million switching cycles. MICON 5 keyswitches are available with SMT and THT connections. A comprehensive range of plungers and keycaps enables suitable solutions for any application.
