OKW Gehäusesysteme offers a range of tuning knobs as the central elements for menu-controlled interfaces. The soft-touch grip surface provides an easy hold, a pleasant touch sensation and ergonomic operation. The high-quality appearance can also be illuminated if required.

The modern CONTROL-KNOBS are designed for user-friendly utilisation and consist of hard and soft plastic components: knob body made of high-quality PC (UL 94 HB) with a soft touch TPE outer shell with a functional grooved appearance. Due to the soft-touch material, the tuning knobs offer high grip qualities with an anti-slip effect. Installation is effected using collets, which enable a secure fit on the spindle and are suitable for rotary potentiometers/pulse encoders with round shaft ends in accordance with DIN 41 591. For final assembly, a cover made of PA 6 (UL94) is mounted on the basic body.

The knobs are available in the standard colours nero and volcano in the following sizes: 36 mm, with hole 6 mm and 1/4″ (6.35 mm); and 46 mm, with hole 6 mm and 1/4″ (6.35 mm). Both sizes are available with/without a pointer line on the side for fine scaling.

As a visual highlight, optional illumination gives attractive emphasis. The tuning knobs can be fitted with energy-saving SMD LED technology to provide individual lighting results. In this version, the basic body of the knob is not traffic white, but is made of translucent material. This gives the following illumination options: translucent optic ring on the top surface and translucent optic ring on the top surface with pointer line on the side. To illuminate the ring, the base available in the range of accessories is required, together with the LED lighting kit (RGB backlight).

Applications include measuring and control engineering, medical field and laboratory technology, the smart factory, communication and much more. To adapt the knobs to special customer requirements, they can be modified by means of printing or laser marking on the top surface/cover.
