CHERRY MV LINEAR
PROGRESSIVE AND LUMINOUS
In use, the CHERRY VIOLAs are smooth and all keys, even Backspace and Enter, are completely consistent in feel when compared to all the other keys.Andrew Munro, Kitguru
CHERRY MV LINEAR IN DETAIL
Industry standard cross-stem
The cross-stem functions as the secure connection between the keycap and the keyswitch. Compatible with unlimited choice of keycap profiles, colors, materials that allows end users to customize and personalize their keyboards. Also allows manufacturers and brands to easily source keycaps to meet their own requirements. In addition, CHERRY has designed the upper part of the CHERRY MV housing to be transparent and to guarantee uniform illumination of the entire key cap, resulting in a bright display of all 16.8 million colours of the RGB spectrum.
V-Shape contact system
The V-Shape contact system features a distinctive switching characteristic: a two-stage, linear actuation that's been defined as "CrossLinear" by CHERRY. An actuation force of 45 cN is required for the pretravel of two millimetres. After that, the actuation force ramps up to 75 cN at the end of the travel distance (four millimetres). The resulting characteristic curve enables CHERRY MV LINEAR to offer ergonomic overtravel and fast reset. Also, CHERRY specially designed the shifting characteristics to meet the requirements of the target consumers.
Precision coil spring
The keyswitch’s coil spring pressure resistance is the CHERRY MV’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.
The main housing of CHERRY MV consists of a high-precision CAD part made of plastic polymer. With a tolerance of less than 0.01 millimetre and a total of eight guide rails on the inside, this ensures wobble-free and scratch-free operation. The outer part of the housing serves as a mounting bracket for the mechanical keyboard.CHERRY VIOLA is optimised for use with monochrome or RGB-capable SMD LED for a perfect an bright keyboard illumination.
MORE ABOUT CHERRY MV LINEAR
CHERRY MV is a brand new switch designed specifically for the entry gaming market and its needs. Thanks to a simple design, a unique switching characteristic, and a new contact system, CHERRY MV replaces entry-level technologies such as rubber domes and hybrid solutions. It thus represents a significantly higher quality alternative when it comes to reliability, typing feel and durability.
