The M50-A is the first of our GRID layout keyboards here at RAMA WORKS®. It features RGB LEDs (Hotswap Only) and the leaf spring mount plate. Variable layouts are available with the Solderable variant of the board.
LEAF SPRING PLATE MOUNT
M50-A features a leaf spring plate mount, an innovative plate mount design utilizing thin strips of the plate to act as a leaf spring between the plate and the case. Leaf spring mount provides exceptional flexibility, allowing the entire plate/PCB sub-assembly to yield under keystrokes and vibrate in isolation from the case. The result is a typing experience that is soft and vibrant across the whole keyboard.
SOLDERLESS OR SOLDERABLE & IN-SWITCH RGB
In an effort to provide the best end-user experience available, the M50-A PCB requires no soldering to construct with any Cherry MX-compatible switches. The M50-A offers a USB-C connection attached to the USB Extension PCB. There are also additional PCBs available for individual sale. The hotswap board includes in-switch RGB LEDs under the PCB, which require no installation. The backlight and layout are configurable with the user-friendly VIA application.
The M50-Ax variant is a solderable version without hotswap sockets or RGB LEDs for those who want an alternative layout
The M50-A HOTSWAP PCB is fixed layout with a single 2U space
The M50-Ax PCB is a solderable version without hot-swap sockets or RGB LEDs, supporting full grid, one or two spacebar options
The M50-A comes in a variety of finishes. All editions are CNC milled Aluminium. The KURO edition is carefully bead-blasted to a consistently smooth finish and then anodised to our standard-issue black colouring. The MILK and YOLK edition tops are electrophoretically coated to their bold matte finish. And finally, the NANO edition top is powder-coated in a retro-futuristic grey. The NANO/MILK/YOLK all feature the same powder-coated MOON base.
Replace the included SILO plate with a plate in a different color. Combine with an extra PCB to easily switch between different builds.
