Like the CHERRY MX BLACK, the CHERRY MX SILENT BLACK is featured by a linear switching characteristic as well. The operating noises are reliably minimized by a patented damping. The switch with the silent CHERRY MX technology establishes itself as a strong choice regarding to its increased spring force and soft actuation.

Inside CHERRY MX SILENT BLACK

1 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.
In the "MX RGB" version, CHERRY Refract technology is integrated into the component: A computer-calculated lens set that uses active light refraction to direct the illumination from the SMD LED on the circuit board into the keycap without loss.

2 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 stem of MX Silent switches is made of two components and contains integrated, patented noise reduction technology.

This dark grey switching slide is responsible for the linear switch characteristics of the CHERRY MX SILENT BLACK. Due to the straight TLS surface, the switch triggers directly.

3 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 50 million operations.

4 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.

5 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.
In the "MX RGB" version, the lower part of the housing is translucent and has a recess for the SMD LED on the circuit board.
