Beam spring dimensions?


21 Nov 2020, 17:27

Hi, I have some questions about beam spring switch dimensions:

1. how tall are they with a normal row 3 cap on (asdf)? from base (where they touch the pcb) to the tip of the cap when not being pressed.
2. how far do they press in? What is the travel distance?
3. at what depth do they become actuated?

There doesn't seem to be any information on the wiki or on any forums, and google doesn't find anything either, I also checked the patents. I would appreciate some info, thanks.

I measure:

roughly 5 cm unpressed (measuring from tallest point of key cap)

roughly 4.6 cm pressed

actuation is roughly halfway between there at about 4.8 cm
