80% compact format keyboard with classic TKL
G3ms Sapphire Mechanical switches
G3ms switches are the first switches designed by the Dark Project engineering team. The improved mechanical design has a smaller connection area between the steam (moving part) and the housing, thereby the friction area has been reduced. G3ms Sapphire greased during the manufacturing process.
• Pressing force – 50g
• Operation distance – 2 mm
• Clicks resource – 50 million clicks
16.8 million RGB colours
Full bright RGB backlight with wide range adjustable range. A separate diode under each key provides a directional light beam, the intensity and regulated brightness at Dark Project software. By pressing the short-cuts the RGB backlit has supported control.
Layout – ENG/UA
Keycaps – Cherry
Keycap material – PBT (polybutylene terephthalate). PBT material has high chemical resistance, increased hardness and abrasion resistance.
Manufacturing technology – Double-Shot (double casting). The keycap consists of 2 separate plastic molds. Under high temperature and pressure, plastic molds are combined. When using double casting the symbols on the keycaps will not be erased even with long and intensive use.
During the keybaords assembling on conveyor the stabilisers going throught the process of handy waxing. Greased stabilizers provides tactilely pleasant adhesiveness of the keys movement and pleasant sound.
PCB Mount construct
Stabilizers fasten to the printed circuit board (PCB). This type of mounting significantly reduces mechanical vibrations and audio resonance. The PCB Mount type is the standard for custom made keyboards. Compatibility with this standard provides a wide range of options for future keyboard upgrades.
Allows to replacement of switches without disassembling the keyboard and using a soldering iron. Replacing switches enlarges the great opportunities for customisation of the keyboard and significantly increases its maintainability.
There are 3 key components of a chassis: the top and bottom covers (housing), the main supporting structure (chassis plate) and the printed circuit board (PCB). Two-level sound insulation is implemented in the places where the printed circuit board (PCB) is attached to the main supporting structure (chassis plate) as well as between the chassis plate and the bottom cover of the housing. For noice noise-insulating material have been used foam with a high sound absorption coefficient.
