AWARD-WINNING CONTROL KNOBS FOR ELECTRONICS

Designer tuning knobs

Blog - March 2016

The designer's choice for modern tuning and potentiometer knobs.

Is it the aesthetically pleasing modern designs? Or the distinctive pastel-coloured marking elements? Or the huge choice of options? Whatever the reason, award-winning TOP-KNOBS and the equally innovative COM-KNOBS are our most popular potentiometer knobs.

There’s always tremendous demand for push-on TOP-KNOBS, winner of an iF Product Design Award. Smart, modern, highly individual: TOP-KNOBS are for designers who demand something different – such as avant-garde marking elements that simply clip into place.

Like the look of TOP-KNOBS but don’t want a push fitting? No problem – specify them with a lateral screw fixing if you prefer. Their colour scheme is reflected in the highly popular COM-KNOBS, which feature colour-coded covers and (optional) marking elements. Choose from grey, black or the pastel shades of sky blue, beach yellow, lagoon green or coral pink.

Want to add a glow to your controls? Specify LED illuminated STAR-KNOBS for either flush fitted or surface mounted (collet fixture) applications. They can click in for ‘OK’ – reducing the number of controls you’ll need on your front panel. Saving you space.

Specify STAR-KNOBS with or without finger recess; with or without knurls. They’re perfect for measuring and control, healthcare, HVAC, building management and communications.

Another great range (also with collet fixing) is COMBINATION KNOBS. They offer round, wing and spindle-shaped designs with matt surfaces. Clip on covers (with or without indicator lines) enable branding or colour coding. Accessories include arrow disks and dials.

But if all these are a little too funky for your project, don’t worry. We also offer classic TUNING KNOBS in sizes from ø 12 to ø 38 mm (spindle sizes 4 mm or 6 mm).
