The requirements on desktop keyboards for office use varie and are always changing. In the early years of the computer a keyboard had to be more closely like a manual typewriter to be accepted by the user. High actuation force, a long contact travel and a loud actuation sound were positive features of a keyboard. In today's open-plan offices keyboards have to be quiet and noiseless. Many low noise keyboards are just greased and become noisy over time. Active Key strikes a new path while using the latest innovations in key techniques. Active Key is using the „Scissor Balancing” technology where every key is guided by a scissor module. The noise when the key is pressed down is history now. A keyboard should also have a low actuation force to avoid RSI (= Repetitive Strain Injury-Syndrome). „Scissor Balancing” has an alternative guidance which made the low operation force possible. Our portfolio offers a variety of space saving, fast and comfortable solutions.
