PFU EMEA brings Topre REALFORCE keyboards to Europe


PFU (EMEA) Limited, has announced it will bring two REALFORCE keyboards by Topre to Europe. The REALFORCE R2 PFU Limited-Edition by Topre full-size keyboards and REALFORCE R2 PFU Limited Edition by Topre mid-size keyboards have been designed exclusively for PFU and ensure high mechanical and tactile performance, reducing mistyping and increasing user efficiency.

Built in Japan and available in black and ivory, the REALFORCE keyboards feature the Topre Capacitive Key Switch with Silent Membrane which enables users to increase their typing speed and accuracy, while still providing the quiet tactile feedback expected from a Topre capacitive keyboard. The devices are designed for the fast-paced environments of data input driven industries, helping financial, data, IT and publishing teams achieve their goals effortlessly while ensuring precision with each keystroke.

REALFORCE keyboards also feature customisation options to ensure high-precision for daily tasks. Each key comes with an Actuation Point Changer (APC) function, which helps users determine the amount of travel for each key. The 1.5 mm setting allows for 25% increased typing speed (compared to the standard 2.2mm setting), while the 3mm allows for more key travel, reducing typing errors. To enable this function users can download the software from the official REALFORCE website. The keyboards also come with full N-Key Rollover, which can keep up with any number of keystrokes and ensure users are always in control.

In addition, REALFORCE keyboards are designed to withstand the test of time, with each Topre key switch having a lifetime of 50 million keystrokes each. The keys are printed using a sublimation process, ensuring they do not fade after repeated use, which when combined with the keystroke durability ensures the keyboards will continue to deliver a high-quality, reliable and long-lasting experience.

“Topre REALFORCE keyboards are the result of precise Japanese design and manufacturing that ensures each and every movement is tailored to the user, helping drive more efficient output,” said Mike Nelson, Senior Vice President, PFU (EMEA) Limited. “With great attention to detail, every REALFORCE keyboard is manually assembled and each key checked to ensure the product is up to exacting standards. We know customers are looking for products that are not only reliable and customisable, but they also want them to last. That’s why we’ve partnered with Topre REALFORCE to ensure users in Europe can invest in a keyboard that will deliver a quality experience throughout its lifetime.”

The REALFORCE R2 PFU Limited-Edition by Topre full-size keyboards and REALFORCE R2 PFU Limited Edition by Topre mid-size keyboards will be sold via the PFU EMEA Amazon store in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
