Realforce TKL SA for Mac / R2TLSA-US4M-BK
Realforce's first keyboard for Mac
The US English layout of the Mac standard is adopted, and Realforce's original key switches, which pursue a pressing feeling called feather touch, can be operated comfortably with the familiar Mac standard key layout.
One-touch Function/Media key switching
Function key and Media key special functions such as screen brightness, volume, and media operation can be switched with a single touch without starting System Preferences.
Simple key-top font that fits in with Mac
The key tops are printed in a simple font that blends in with the Mac.
Customizable Mac Software
Disable each key switch, swap CapsLock and Ctrl keys, set indicator LED colors, and, on models with APC functionality, individually set the response position of each keyswitch.
Space-saving design is realized by eliminating number keys
For those with limited desk space, the space-saving design is recommended. The keyboard width is 8.6cm less than ordinary keyboards. By saving 20% of the keyboard space, a larger space for using the mouse becomes available.
Key operation is the same as ordinary keyboards
By allocating number keys to other keys, keying in numbers or working on calculations are just as easy as on an ordinary keyboard.
APC (Actuation Point Changer) function that allows adjustment of switch on position
Topre's unique APC function enables up to 25% faster input than with ordinary mechanical key switches (according to our own research). The on-position of each keyswitch can be adjusted in three steps of 1.5mm, 2.2mm, and 3mm to optimize the keyswitch response speed. For example, keys that you want to input quickly can be set to 1.5 mm, while keys that you want to prevent accidental typing can be set to 3 mm.
Stress-Free Silent Keyswitch
The waveform data in the figure is an example of extracted 2,500 to 5,000 Hz, a frequency component with high human auditory sensitivity, from keystroke recording data by the same subject for standard and Silent keyboards. Compared to the standard key-switch keyboard, the amplitude (vertical axis direction) of the silent key-switch keyboard is much lower, indicating less stimulation to the ear.
The LED color of the indicator that shows the status of CapsLock, Win mode, etc. can be customized by selecting from seven colors according to your preference by operating the keyboard, and the brightness of the LED can be adjusted.
LED indicator color with APC function
By using the APC key, it is possible to adjust the actuation point by selecting from 3 levels. The level of actuation point can be confirmed by the color of LED indicator.
LED color: Blue Actuation point: 1.5mm for all keys (Speedy input)
LED color: Green Actuation point: 2.2mm for all keys (Normal input)
LED color: Red Actuation point: 3.0mm for all keys (Mistaken input prevention)
LED color: White Actuation point: Customized for each key (Speedy input & Mistaken input prevention)
* The white LED represents the actuation point of “each individual key” customized by the Realforce software.
Cable can be extended in 3 directions
The cable outlets are placed on the left, right and upper side of the keyboard. Cable outlets in 3 directions allows for optimal placement according to the installation environment.
More traction and more stability
By increasing the surface area of the bottom rubber pads fourfold, and by adopting a soft resin material on the bottom of the tilt stand, the keyboard is more stable and less likely to accidentally be displaced on glossy surfaces such as glass.
Adjustable by key spacer
Two types of integral key spacers with 2mm and 3mm thickness and a key top puller are attached. Installing the integral type key spacer under the key top according to the APC function setting provides for faster keystroke return, allowing for quicker key input.
