Das Keyboard Gamma Zulu is the brand name for a tactile mechanical keyboard switch, manufactured by Omron for the Das Keyboard 5Q. It was announced on Das Keyboard 5Q Kickstarter page in July 2016. [1]

The specifications are very similar to the Omron-manufactured Logitech Romer-G (B3K-T13L) except with 3.5 mm key travel as opposed to 3.0 mm of the Romer-G. The estimated lifetime of the switch has also been upped from 70 million to 100 million actuations.
