Shift carriage

A high-precision CAD component made of version-specific plastic polymer that, in combination with the housing and the coil spring, produces resistance and tactile feel. The keycap is fitted onto it. Its colour shows the module characteristic: RGB RED LEVEL – Linear 45 cN. Its colour shows the module characteristic: BROWN LEVEL – Linear 55 cN. Its colour shows the module characteristic: BLUE LEVEL – Linear 60 cN. Its colour shows the module characteristic: RED LEVEL – Linear 45 cN. Its colour shows the module characteristic: BLACK LEVEL – Linear 60 cN.

Housing (upper section)

Also a high-precision CAD component made of plastic polymer. With a tolerance of less than 0.01mm, it guides the shift carriage precisely and at the same time accommodates the switching mechanism of the CHERRY MX module. CHERRY Refract technology is integrated into the MX RGB version. A computer-calculated lens-set that diverges the lighting from the SMD-LED on the circuit board loss-free to the key cap.

Precision coil spring

This is the sparring partner for your fingers. In the CHERRY MX, as a mechanical module, the pressure resistance is produced by a precision coil spring. The highly dense molecular structure of the metal alloy is individually calculated for the module characteristic and permanently optimised for the module-specific compressive force applied. Operating force: 45 cN. Operating force: 45 cN. Operating force: 45 cN for the spring resistance in general, approx. 55 cN top value to overcome the switching point. Operating force: 50 cN for the spring resistance in general, approx. 60 cN top value to overcome the switching point. Operating force: 40-80 cN, approx. 60 cN typical.

Gold Crosspoint contact

The heart of every CHERRY MX module. And the patent-protected basis for their incredible reliability and durability: special triangular contacts meet absolutely precisely cross-wise and at right angles. Thanks to this unique CHERRY innovation and sophisticated gold-plating, they make the electrical contact and clean themselves simultaneously, thus remaining permanently corrosion-proof. Guaranteed 50 million times.

Housing (lower section)

Dual-function component made of plastic polymer. The inside precisely accommodates the CHERRY MX module’s switching mechanism. The outside is also the base and locating surface for circuit board installation in mechanical keyboards. The bottom section of the MX RGB version‘s housing is transculent, and has a recess on the circuit board for the SMD-LED.
