Why OMRON Custom Switch?
It’s fair to say there are many mechanical switches on the market that have very good response times. With this even playing field, it came down to more of the physical shape and how it responds to the other parts of the pushbutton that led to this decision
More Surface Area
The Omron switch is a larger surface area where the cap attaches to the switch. Like the Cherry MX, this is held by simply pressing the cap down to four attachment points that have more surface area
Given the smaller surface area of the cross hairs on the Cherry MX switches to hold the plunger / cap in place, players have experienced these popping off during gameplay. Not an issue with casual play, but a serious issue during tournament play when the stakes are higher
Custom PCB with Soldered Blades for the Secure, Surefire Response
Secondly, most manufacturers have chosen to use a switch base within the pushbutton body, where the switch blades are not seated permanently (not soldered), but held in place by a plastic adapter. This leaves room for error as these blades, if not installed properly, can be loosened, therefore, the pins of the microswitch do not make proper contact. The result is inconsistent response and misfire
Easy and Fast Installation
Swapping out a pushbutton switch shouldn’t take more than 20 seconds at most to do, which has been the case with pushbuttons that utilize the Cherry MX switches. For the Gravity pushbutton design, swapping out the switch can take as little as 10 seconds. It’s that easy and fast
