Dials are used to record the number of graduations and stepped degrees in applications. When used in conjunction with an index, it becomes possible to measure when the zero of a dial has reached the index. Various types of dials can be used with different applications. These include flat dials and drum dials. All types of dials look very similar and work in a similar way too. The main difference between the different types of dials is down to the settings of the dial and the way that graduations and numerals are featured on the dial itself. Most are set clockwise, but they can also be anti-clockwise if preferred. The number of graduations, the range of graduations and the way that degrees are stepped are available in various combinations. Because of the great variety in configurations of dials, they can be used with a wide number of applications.
