Alps SKCL Heavy Cream is a special-purpose heavy linear switch in the "complicated" Alps SKCL/SKCM series.[1]


It is not clear whether SKCL Heavy Cream is a catalogue switch or a custom production run for a specific set of Sharp keyboards; the only known keyboards to date are SKCL versions of Sharp X68000 keyboards, both models with SKCL Green and SKCL Yellow switches. It has been measured using coin stacking as 120 g. The LED recess is present as with other SKCL switches.
