INSIDE CHERRY MX Blue
- UPPER HOUSING
Upper Housing is a CAD high precision component made of plastic polymer. With a tolerance of less than 0.01 mm, the component guides the switching slide precisely, forming the CHERRY MX keyswitch’s switching mechanism housing.
- SWITCHING SLIDE / STEM
A CAD high-precision component made of plastic polymer specifically for the Cherry MX creates the pre travel and the keystroke feel between the upper housing and coil spring. The key cap is attached on the upper part of the stem.
The switching slide of the CHERRY MX Blue consists of two parts. As soon as the switch is pressed and the white component hits the blue stem after the tactile point and goes down, a "click sound" is triggered. Due to the bulge on the TLS Surface, the switch also sends acoustic feedback in addition to the noticeable one, which means that the exact position of the trigger is communicated to the user.
- GOLD CROSSPOINT CONTACT
Gold-based, the crosspoint contact is the heart of every CHERRY MX keyswitch and the basis of its incredible reliability and durability. With absolute precision, these triangular cross-contacts meet each other at precise right angles.
This unique CHERRY innovation and ornate gold-plating make the electrical contact enclosure self-cleaning and gives the keyswitch permanent protection against corrosion, guaranteeing the keyswitch for more than 100 million operations.
- PRECISION COIL SPRING
The keyswitch’s coil spring pressure resistance is the CHERRY MX’s sparring partner for your fingers. The high-density molecular structure of the spring’s metal alloy is calculated individually on the keyswitch and consistently optimized for the keyswitch’s specific pressure force.
- HOUSING BASE
Dual-functional, the housing base component is made of plastic polymer and glass fibre. The inner part forms the mounting for the CHERRY MX keyswitch’s switching mechanism. The outer part is both the base and mounting surface for CHERRY’s mechanical keyboards.
MORE ABOUT CHERRY MX Blue
The characteristic of this tactile switch is featured by tactile and audible feedback. Thanks to the striking "click", the CHERRY MX Blue not only provides noticeable, but also acoustic feedback. The switch with the CHERRY MX click technology thus establishes itself as a courageous choice.
