Xerox Docutech Cap Question

Unread post by zrrion » 12 Jan 2019, 07:08

My docutech keyboard came in the mail and looking at the caps, the stop and spacebar keys appear to be the only ones that are yellowed, leading me to believe that the rest of the caps are PBT. I'm guessing that they're dyesub as well. Can anyone confirm this?

Yes, that is correct. That is a 6085 just to be clear. I've got an AZERTY 6085 that has an ABS caps lock as well, but that's the only board I've seen with such a thing.

Is the capslock doubleshot? The stop is doubleshot abs and if the LED window is doubleshot that would make sense

If you remove the caps lock key, flip it over, and see that the LED window has a small rectangular piece pinned with plastic rivets, it's PBT. If the cap has a whole shot of clear plastic under it, then it's definitely ABS. That's the distinction. :)

I meant to ask if yours specifically was, but from your answer I'm assuming that it is. Mine is not.

I said my AZERTY board is. My others are not. It is normal for them to be PBT.

Don't tell me you were the lucky person picking it up for 100$?

I was not, but I sure wish I was. If that lucky person is reading this and wants to trade a lime board for a brown board hmu
