Alps SKCM Salmon, salmon Alps, or pink Alps, is a tactile switch in the Alps SKCL/SKCM series. Salmon Alps is somewhat stiffer than SKCM Black, but significantly smoother. It is also reported to be heavier than SKCM Orange.
It appears that salmon Alps was introduced after SKCM Orange, and it appears that the two were sold as alternative products for several years. Salmon Alps is also reported to be contemporary with Alps SKCM Black, which was the only one of these three tactile switches to remain on sale into the mid 90s. The Wang 725-3770 suggests that they were still made as late as 1992.
