|Keyswitches||Cherry MX Black|
The Cherry G80-0693 is a keyboard made by Cherry for Alloy. Little to nothing is known about the original machine/terminal this keyboard was used with. This keyboard is also very rare, with only a handful of documented examples. It uses plate-mounted Cherry MX Black switches with in-switch diodes, giving this keyboard NKRO support. It comes with Cherry ABS doubleshot keycaps. This keyboard uses the popular for the time AT layout, created by IBM for their Model F AT. It has a thin, flat coiled cable with a RJ12 connector on the end. It is unknown what protocol this keyboard uses.
|Keyswitches||Hi-Tek Series 725 Linear, White Slider|
This seems to be a version of the Cherry G80-0693 with a keyboard assembly made by NMB. It uses White linear Hi-Tek Space invaders switches with Dye-Sublimated PBT keycaps in an AT layout. The rest of the keyboard is the same as the Cherry G80-0693.
