The design is similar to the Focus FK-3001, with several differences:
- Standard function keys arranged into groups of three instead of four
- In addition to the standard F1–F12 along the top, the keyboard also provides F1–F10 along the left in the IBM Model F layout, plus a final F11 and F12 above
- Cursor keys for all eight directions (N through NW) surrounding a Turbo button
- The horizontal ridges running across the keyboard above the function keys were removed as of this model
The built-in desk calculator with LCD is independent of the computer and is powered by a separate button cell battery. One or two keys above the numeric keypad switch between the numeric keypad and calculator functionality. The additional calculator keys do not generate scan codes, preventing them from driving a software calculator on the attached computer.
As usual, the DIP switches are underneath the logo plate (top left on the front cover).
As pictured below: LED panel at the top right; the numeric keypad is switched between input and calculator modes by way of two keys, labelled "KB Lock" and "CAL Lock".
Lock key indication is given by red integrated LEDs within Alps SKCL Yellow switches. A single Futaba lock switch, labelled "KB CAL" toggles calculator input mode; the top row of calculator keys uses 1.25-unit keycaps.
- Alps SKCM White for most keys
- Alps SKCL Yellow, for the LED keys
- Futaba lock switches in the boards with a single calculator toggle key
At least UK, US, SE/FI and DE layouts have been sighted.
