OC-62 (Fulfilled)

OC-62 is a collaborative project between Bowl Keyboards and Synthetics. OC-62 was designed to be a distinct 60% keyboard focusing heavily on aesthetics, feel, and sound.

== Specifications and Details ==

Materials - 6063 Aluminum top case, bottom case, copper weight
Typing angle - 7.2 degrees
Front Height - 17.6mm (without lip) EKH - 22.39 mm

Other features:

  • Hidden JST routing channel
  • Internal acoustic cuts
  • Dramatic side profile and accentuated seam

== Mounting Details ==

The OC-62 mounting is designed to fully isolate the plate from the case with molded rubber gaskets that sandwich the plate and allow the leaf spring cuts in the plate to give a soft bottom out feeling while maintaining a clean sound without case resonance or ping. The gaskets are strips of rubber that fit into the top and bottom case similar to the F1/F2 keyboard designed by Geon. However, these gaskets have a tab that holds them in place in the top and bottom case to make assembly of the keyboard even easier.
