CHERRY MX ULP In DETAIL

1

spring

The spring’s force together with the wings are defining the real mechanical feeling in this ultra thin form factor. 

2

Wings 

Stainless steel for wings and spring makes the switch robust and ensures a superior lifetime. With the preloaded tension spring it gives the user a very fast activation and a tactile feeling over lifetime. The wings are the connection to the keycap and ensure a parallel and balanced switch movement, even on off center activations.

ACTUATOR AND POLYMER SOCKET

The actuator defines the pre travel of the switch and activates the click arm. 

The polymer socket as CAD high precision component holds the Gold Crosspoint contact system in place and is also responsible for homogeneous illumination of the switch.

Gold Crosspoint Contact System

Gold-based, the crosspoint contact is the heart of every CHERRY MX keyswitch. With absolute precision, these triangular cross-contacts meet each other at precise right angles. This proven CHERRY innovation and gold-plating ensures a reliable contact and makes it a true mechanical solution with ergonomic overtravel.

5

Base Frame

Dual-functional, the base component is made of a special, proprietary metal alloy. It holds the parts together and is the interface to the PCB with the soldering pads.

CHERRY MX ULTRA LOW PROFILE

Description

The characteristic of the MX Ultra Low Profile is not dissimilar to the MX BLUE, as it is also characterized by a tactile feedback. In addition, there is the unmistakable "CHERRY click noise", which means that in addition to a tactile feedback, there is also an acoustic one. Thanks to the low actuation force, the short travel distance and the extremely low height, the switch is suitable for applications where fast reactions as well as reliable inputs in confined spaces are required, such as in notebooks.
