Control Knobs

Our selection of control knobs is one of the world's largest and many are designed to meet the latest applications. We can also supply a selection of control knobs, many of which may be lit by the transference (or transilluminated) of light from the panel itself.

Moulded in clear substrate and appropriately finished to match the panel, our control knobs allow constant handling with minimal wear. We also offer a range of control knobs for use on concentric dimmers and dials can be supplied according to specification, usually attached to the base of the knob.

We manufacture a comprehensive range of lighting and airborne components. Many of our components are used by the defence and aerospace industries for many years and are associated with reliability and dependability.

With the advancements in lighting techniques, we strive to implement new technologies across the range. We can offer night vision compatibility across most lighting components.

Our product portfolio for this group includes:

  • dimming resistors and switches
  • instrument lamp holders
  • indicator lights
  • cockpit utility lights
  • flood lights
  • pillar lamps
  • bridges and illuminated switches

Rotary Switches

Our range of rotary switches controls switching circuits up to 45 Amps. Our rotary switches are based on the principle of a roller contact moving over a pair of fixed contacts, giving a self-cleaning wiping action.

Four contact pairs per cell offer many configurations. Contacts are moved by a common through shaft manually, whilst the switch is indexed through 45 or 90 degrees by a spring mechanism. The switch can be fully rotated or stopped to a position 1 to 8, and can be used for AC & DC circuits.

Our selection of rotary switches include types A15 and A30 only.
