WHICH KNOBS FOR MY MENU-DRIVEN ELECTRONICS? CONTROL-KNOBS OR STAR-KNOBS?

OKW now offers two ranges of potentiometer knobs for menu-driven electronics: CONTROL-KNOBs and STAR-KNOBs. So which is best for your project? What are the technical differences? Compare the two models here:

  • Mounting – both CONTROL-KNOBs and STAR-KNOBs can be specified for surface-mount applications; STAR-KNOBs also offer a flush-mount option.
  • Illumination – both knobs feature SMD LED technology (5 V) with RGB backlight for individual colours. CONTROL-KNOBs have an illuminated top and pointer; STAR-KNOBs offer an illuminated base ring (3 mm high) for surface mounting or an illuminated top for flush mounting.
  • Finger Grip – all CONTROL-KNOBs have easy-grip grooves. STAR-KNOBs offer the option of a cover with a finger recess for fine adjustments. This is recommended when STAR-KNOBs are specified for flush-fit applications.
  • Pointer Line – CONTROL-KNOBs have a pointer line; STAR-KNOBs do not.
  • Fixings – both CONTROL-KNOBs and STAR-KNOBs use the tried-and-trusted collet fixing system.
  • Sizes – CONTROL-KNOBs are available in two sizes (ø 36 mm and ø 46 mm); STAR-KNOBs (ø 33 mm and ø 41 mm).
