Alps SKCC Side-Angled Cream is a switch in the Alps SKCC series.


Side-Angled Cream uses an angled, bar mount keystem, where the angle is in-plane with the keystem itself; "side-angled" is simply in reference to the fact that the keystem is angled 90° out from the orientation of the Alps logo on the base (as though the keycaps were facing sideways). SKCC angled is not otherwise known, and General Instrument Series S950 keystems are angled in the expected direction. At 6 mm wide, the keystem is too large for normal SKCC keycaps. The slider is tall. The same mount was used in Alps SKFF series, also in Facit typewriters.

The only known switchplate to date is black; the switch also uses red terminal sealant.

The switch depicted below is from surplus stock held by Swedish supplier Belganet Dataelektronik. Their origin is unknown, but they are likely to be Facit typewriter spares.
