Kailh Box Switches PG1511F01 Series Spec

Due to the IP56 water resistant construction of the switches, Kailh Box switches are compatible with SMD LEDs only. They are not compatible with regular through-hole LEDs
The 4 new Kailh Box Switch colors are:
•   White
•   Red
•   Brown
•   Black
•   MX-compatible
•   Compatible SMD LEDs
•   3.5 mm travel
•   80 million lifetime click rating
•   Refer to the chart below for a breakdown of each switch’s attributes.

These Kailh box switches have stems which are surrounded by a “box” which provides two functions.
First of all, it keeps liquids, dirt, and dust from getting into the switches. This is especially important when the keycaps are taken off of a board and the switches are left “naked” for a time.
Second of all, the surrounding “box” supports the stem during the keypress and therefore restricts the stem from any horizontal movement, or “wobble” when moving downwards and when the switch is fully depressed.
Box switches are rated IP56 water resistant and have a lifespan of 80 million keystrokes.
