Non-mechanical switches don't work like traditional switches; they don't rely on metal leaf contact. Instead, they use principles like optics and magnetic field induction. This design allows for faster response times and longer lifespans, and magnetic switches are a prime example.
When a key is pressed, the magnet inside the switch moves, and the Hall sensor detects the change in magnetic flux, sending out the key value. DrunkDeer's magnetic switch can be adjusted to actuate at different distances, with nine levels ranging from 0.4mm to 3.6mm to suit various scenarios, like quick gaming or precise work.
Indeed, our switches are hot-swappable rather than soldered to the board, making it easier to replace them if needed. However, in general, we recommend avoiding switch replacement if possible.
Each switch has a different magnetic strength, and before assembling each keyboard, we calibrate the actuation point in a dust-free environment by pairing the Hall sensors. If you replace a switch, the magnet's strength will change, while the Hall sensor's sensitivity range will remain the same. This may result in minor deviations in sensing accuracy.
Disassembling the A75 keyboard is a breeze. Simply remove the metal knob and slowly pry the upper and lower cover seams using a plastic pick (it's easier to pry near the four corners). The cover is held together by buckles, eliminating screws and rigid contact, and providing better sound performance while making assembly and disassembly easier.
However, due to the magnets' precision mentioned earlier in Q3, we currently do not recommend disassembling the A75 keyboard.
Absolutely. Our program is available on the homepage of our website or via the direct link provided below. Currently, it can only be installed on Windows systems due to technical limitations. Mac OS users can configure their preferred keyboard parameters on a Windows computer and then connect it to their Mac/Macbooks for use. Sorry for the inconvenience.
We're actually working on that! We're exploring more possibilities for magnetic switches, such as clicky or low-profile switches that can be easily swapped like traditional mechanical switches. However, we need to figure out how to enable users to recalibrate the actuation point after replacing switches. We're still working on it, so stay tuned! :D
Absolutely! Our first keyboard features a 75% layout, which we believe is compact and versatile enough to meet a wide range of needs and scenarios. However, we definitely have plans to design and launch more layouts in the near future. We value your feedback and want to hear from you about what kind of layouts and materials you would like to see from us. So please don't hesitate to share your thoughts with us!
