If you really are Kailh, you could help out with the specifications of your various switch series.

This is the only type where I've obtained anything to photograph:

Kailh PG1511 series

These are all the others we know about:

Kailh PG1275 series
Kailh PG1280 series
Kailh PG1350 series
Kailh PG1458 series
Kailh PG1510 series
Kailh PG1518 series
Kailh PG1593 series

Someone on AliExpress who sells Kailh switches was going to try to arrange to obtain the rest (if we understood each other correctly) but nothing ever came of it. In many cases, the Kailh website doesn't even have clear specifications.

Are "longhua" and "kaihua" actual words? Are they related? What do they translate to?

Hi kailh - nice to have you here! I think it would be better, if we kept discussion on one or two threads, as opposed to many more.

A while ago I posted a switch with a click bar here. Which switch is it?

photos-videos-f64/kaihua-kailh-click-bar-switches-t16319.html

Do you have a product catalog or something like this that you could share with us? I find it difficult to understand all the differences in your product line.

Thank you! :D

The click bar one is PG151101D188, see wiki page for PG1511. Sadly Kailh have sent the wrong person to the forum. He or she knows less than what's already on their website, not more.

"CPG151101D188" -- where has the "C" come from?

If PG1458 doesn't exist then why is it (still!) on your website?

You need to go back to the person responsible for your website and instruct them to:

  1. Remove all the incorrect and outdated information, especially non-existent products!
  2. Improve the organisation of the whole site as it's rather muddled — I created most of the wiki pages from a list of new products, but someone else found that for me and you can't even get to it normally
  3. Document your products thoroughly and clearly, with specific lists of variants per series and descriptive prose about each product's benefits
  4. Move all the text out of images and into actual HTML text: in order to translate the text, all I can do is use Google's handwriting recognition, and many of the Chinese characters are crushed so small that I can't even guess at the finer details and handwriting recognition can't offer me any suggestions

If you want to be part of this community, take this opportunity to completely overhaul your product data so that it's complete, comprehensive and accurate.

That's a bit aggressive isn't it? First of all, we don't know what this person's position is, and if they even have the authority to do so. Second, just having someone from the company here is a cool thing. We could work with them rather than being elitist in our responses,IMO.

That was actually a somewhat mild response from him. Usually he's a lot more intolerable than this :p .

I wasn't saying what, I was saying how. You can be right and wrong at the same time.

I for one am thrilled to have kailh here. I'd love to see more designers and manufacturers in China and Korea and Japan on here. I bet there are thriving communities in their respective languages that are inaccessible to folks like me.

My one piece of advice, to kailh and other manufacturers: please, don't spam the forum. Please keep your initial discussion limited to one or two threads. It makes it easier for us to follow the conversation and build a relationship. This is certainly a cultural thing. I remember when some folks from pcbway came on to the forum and spammed on a bunch of threads. I get what they were trying to do - build interest and get the word out - but it annoyed a lot of people and some even boycotted them.

kailh, I'm looking forward to seeing more information about your switches, and possibly some of the new things you have in the works! :D
