ELMA Electronic has announced the expansion of its range of rotary control knobs with the launch of 118 different ‘soft feel’ and conventional knobs for 4mm, 6mm and 1/4" shafts. Elma is available in Australia from Associated Controls (Australia) Pty Ltd.
These new Type K55, K60, K65 and K66 knobs offer opportunities to appeal to a wide range of users and applications, with either ‘classic’ or ‘new look’ styling.
Available in a range of plain and lined configurations and with a range of up to six body colours for collet and push-on fixing.
A full program of matching colour-coded caps, each with a choice of indicator markings, helps complement Elma's established panel switches and digital encoders.
The ‘soft feel’ knobs use a 2-shot construction of talc-filled polypropylene with a thermoplastic elastomer for maximum control and a superior feel, while the conventional hard finish uses either talc-filled polypropylene or Nylon 6.
All models are rated from -30°C to +50°C, with the lined push-on models available with the line in four different index positions relative to the flat on the shaft to suit individual panel layout requirements.
