Customisation options can include shape, colour, radii and dimensions.
Wide Range of Control Knobs Variants
An electronic knob may have to perform many challenging tasks including turning, pushing, adjusting, controlling and displaying. Depending on the instrument or application, there are design, temperature-resistance and weather-resistance requirements to consider, along with ease-of-installation and cost-effectiveness.
As well as knobs made of plastic, aluminium and chromed brass, a range of material options and fixings are available, for example different plastics, with a choice of collet or set screw fixings. In addition to MENTOR’s standard ranges, their modular Knob Systems can be fully utilised to provide the level of customisation required by the application.
