The ZKB-2 has a piezo keystroke buzzer which emits a short beep/chirp with every keystroke. This feature can be toggled on or off by pressing Alt + ~ (tilde).
Linear variants of the Alps SKCL/SKCM series are used in the ZKB-2. Alps SKCL Green or Alps SKCL Yellow switches are used for all keys except the space bar which uses the stiffer Alps SKCL Grey linear switch.
The layout is based on the standard 101 key ANSI layout with a few variances. The "Enter" key resembles a square "J" occupying the normal enter position and 1u directly above. The "]}" key is elongated to 1.5u and the "\|" key is relocated as a 1u key to the right of a shortened 1.75u right shift. The Ctrl and Alt keys are 1.75u. The altered keys are highlighted below.
