Cherry Americas LLC (Pleasant Prairie, WI) has unwrapped its new pair of MX keyswitches: Cherry Silent and Cherry Silent RGB. Available in red and black stem versions, they furnish patent-pending noise reduction and multiple fastening configurations. In all, four models are offered: Cherry MX3A-L1NN (Silent Red), MX3A-11NN (Silent Black), MX3A-L1NA (Silent RGB Red), and MX3A-11NA (Silent RGB Black).
Both Silent Red and Silent Black carry the company's light linear feel and "Gold Crosspoint" technology, which ensures self-cleaning, resistance to dust and dirt, and extended durability. In addition, the Silent RGBs employ transparent casing with light scattering lens, optimized for even illumination. Overall the Silent MX keyswitches offer less than 5-millisecond bounce, 12-V AC/DC maximum switching voltage, IP-40 rating for water and dust, and two-year warranty.
"With Cherry's Silent and Silent RGB keyswitches, there are never any compromises made in design or manufacture--over 50 million actuations per keyswitch are guaranteed," stated Cherry Americas. "Cherry keyboard users enjoy long-lasting and safe performance with renowned Cherry quality, demonstrated by many years of market leadership in the industry." Of particular interest to its channel for POS, Cherry also recently shipped its keyboards with encryptable MSR.
