Panel controls are designed for applications that typically require frequent adjustment. Both rotary and slide panel control types are available. A selection of elements includes carbon, cermet, and conductive plastic. These devices are available in various sizes and shaft/bushing combinations. Some models are available with a rotary switch and seal options. Typical applications include audio mixing consoles, test and measurement equipment, consumer electronics, and medical equipment.
Turns-counting dials are designed for use with precision rotary potentiometers or other types of panel controls where a turns-indicating device or an adjustment setting/locking device is needed. These devices are available to fit various shaft sizes in digital or concentric scale (analog) readout options. Typical applications include power supplies, oscilloscopes, medical equipment, and industrial automation equipment.
