Features and Applications
Series 87 Low Profile One Button Individial Keyswitch
Keyswitches For Any Need - design keyboards and individual keyswitches to virtually any configuration without costly tooling using the Series 87 low profile modular keyboard switches.
Prototypes and small quantities: create your own with economical, insertable legend style modules.
The Series 87 switches feature the Grayhill Snap Dome Contact System - hear and feel button actuation, you're assured of reliable button actuation with the metal snap-dome under each Series 87 button. When actuated, the dome changes shape, providing audible and tactile feedback to the operator.
