Cherry uses a Crossmatch TouchChip TCS2 sensor with capacitive sensing technology. It is even sensitive enough that it can be used by different users within a company, government agency or institution. Fingerprint ID is a secure, reliable method of authentication and it is also fast in comparison to other traditional means. The admin can also set the authentication to be single sign-on, or part of several log-in stages in the appropriate software. As for the mouse tracking sensor itself, it is an optical LED running at 1375 dpi. The mouse body design is ambidextrous so that it is compatible with a greater number of users.

Pricing Information

The Cherry MC 4900 mouse is now available and comes in at a retail price of £100.
