Switching slide

A CAD high-precision component made of plastic polymer specifically for this model which creates resistance and keystroke feel in the interaction between the upper housing and coil spring. And the key cap is attached on this. Its colour indicates the keyswitch characteristics: Its colour shows the module characteristic: BROWN – 55 cN. Its colour shows the module characteristic: BLUE – 60 cN. Its colour shows the module characteristic: RED – Linear 45 cN. Its colour shows the module characteristic: BLACK – Linear 60 cN.

Upper Housing

Another CAD high-precision component made of plastic polymer. With a tolerance of less than 0.01 mm, it guides the switching slide with precision and also forms the housing for the switching mechanism of the CHERRY MX keyswitch. 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. As the mechanical keyswitch, the pressure-resistance of a precision coil spring is generated with the CHERRY MX. The high-density molecular structure of the metal alloy is calculated individually on the keyswitch characteristics and is consistently optimised over time for the keyswitch-specific pressure force. 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 keyswitch. And the basis of incredible reliability and durability protected by patent: special triangular cross-contacts meet each other at right angles with absolute precision. This worldwide unique CHERRY innovation and ornate gold-plating make the electrical contact closure self-cleaning and thus keeps it permanently protected against corrosion. Guaranteed for 50 million operations. MX RGB model has CHERRY refract technology integrated in the component.
A computerised lens set diverges the lighting using active refraction 
from the SMD LED on the circuit board into the key caps loss-free.

Housing base

Double functional component made of plastic polymer. The inner part forms the exact mounting for the switching mechanism of CHERRY MX keyswitches. The outer part is both the base and surface for the platinum mounting in mechanical keyboards. In the MX RGB version, the housing base is translucent and has a recess for the SMD LED on the circuit board.
