Cherry parts

This page lists known Cherry switch part numbers, both confirmed and unconfirmed.

Switches

“Illuminated” here covers both switches with a factory-fitted lamp, as well as illuminable types supplied without a lamp. The dates indicate catalogue mentions regardless of whether the product was still in production, so long as specifications were provided.

Switches listed with only an NSN do not have guaranteed specifications, especially where the NSN specifications contradict those provided by Cherry.

M4/M5/M6 Series

For specifications, see M4/M5/M6 schema. Dated sources refer to Cherry catalogues and advertisements.

M8, MD and MJ

All instances of “O” found in the last-buy notification for M8 have been changed to “0” under the assumption that they were transcription errors. M82A-1GE0 could however really be M82A-1GEO as the format of German custom types is not known to be documented.
