Compact control knobs enable precise positioning
Since their market launch a few years ago, mechanical control knobs from SIKO (called DKs) with their integrated measuring system have been successfully conquering many new areas. Why? The answer is at your fingertips, because DKs are filigree control knobs suitable for industrial use with a well thought through combination of a Handwheel and mechanical digital position indicator.
SIKO control knobs are the ideal solution for confined space conditions
The regulators from the DK range can be used for applications where multiple axial rotations are needed in tight spaces. The handy control knobs show their direct effect on the installed mechanical displays with just the least deviation. This is because despite their small external dimensions, all SIKO control knobs have a full-scale reduction gear. It is this gear technology that allows the extremely high-resolution recording and precise display of absolute adjustment figures directly at the measuring point.
Easy installation of the control knobs
Assembly is also a piece of cake: simply attach, lock – and you’re done. Just one small drilled hole is all that is needed to mount the torque support. The tried-and-tested SIKO gear technology allows for installation in almost any location.
SIKO control knobs are a simple and economic solution
The innovative concept of the DK range is inspiring the field of mechanical engineering to come up with particularly compact, ergonomic and above all reasonably priced solutions. Users are benefiting from the development experiences in the two competence areas of handwheel technology and mechanical displays (DA) that combine to form this product group.
SIKO control knobs are ideally suited for process technology applications
Control knobs from the DK range are versatile series products that facilitate a large number of other display values in addition to standard values. For example, their suitability for industrial use is reflected in process engineering, which requires high precision in valve adjustment for numerous metering tasks. Many of the control knobs available on the market are not suited to this purpose because they cannot achieve the level of precision and reproducibility needed. SIKO’s control knobs meet both of these criteria with flying colors and are even able to visualize non-linear adjustment processes.
