Newly Upgraded Structure

The Gateron KS-22 Optical switch is crafted with a transparent cover and black base. As an upgraded version of the KS-15 switches, we designed the KS-22 switches with a new structure and a more stable, smooth hand feel. Unlike a mechanical switch, an optical switch uses light for actuation instead of a metal-to-metal connection, enhancing the trigger speed over mechanical switches.

Enlarged Light-Transmitting Opening

Compared to the first-generation optical switch, we enlarged the Gateron KS-22 Optical Switch’s light-transmitting opening to increase the switch’s operational lifespan to 100 million.

How They Work

The infrared optical sensing component uses light-sensing principles to generate different but equivalent resistance to form two states of open circuits and paths, thereby triggering the key signal command.
