Whilst sitting in capsunlocked HQ we were thinking, how do we top the CU80 and CU65? How do we turn the dial to 11 and bring something unique to the mechanical keyboard community? We pondered and planned, looking for the right project to develop until it hit us like a freight train - in order to turn the dial up you must first have a dial!
We are excited to announce the CU7 - a 6-key macropad with a rotary encoder.
The CU7 consists of several parts: Aluminium Top Case, Aluminium Dial, Aluminium Base Plate, PCB and Silicone Base.
The Aluminium Top Case has been machined from one part and features an integrated plate that supports 6 1u keycaps and the Aluminium Dial.
The PCB uses QMK - the function of the keys and RGB LEDs are entirely re-programmable. The PCB features Kailh hot-swap sockets and supports both 3 and 5-pin MX switches. The CU7 features one USB-C port.
With have always wanted to create a macropad to accompany our exiting product range but the addition of the rotary encoder really makes this product special!
