The pilot reported that the circuit and landing were normal. After about 200 metres of ground roll the nosewheel began to shimmy and the nosegear collapsed. The aircraft came to a stop on the runway and all occupants evacuated without injury. The maintenance organisation which recovered the aircraft advised that they have identified and changed an intermittently faulty down lock microswitch. A detailed rigging check was carried out and all dimensions and tolerance were found to be in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications. The maintenance organisation was unable to duplicate the unlock condition during multiple retractions on the ground.
