ROTARY SWITCH; EGO [W/KNOB S13
In foodservice equipment, a knob may be as simple as a push button or "palm button". A control knob is a rotary control used to provide input to a device when grasped by an operator and turned, so that the degree of rotation corresponds to the desired input . Such knobs are one of the most common components in restaurant equipment control systems and are used to modulate a wide variety of settings such as temperature, viscosity, speed and more.
A rotary switch is a switch operated by rotation. These are often chosen when more than two positions are needed. Modern rotary switches use a "star wheel" mechanism to provide the switching positions, such as at every 30, 45, 60, or 90 degrees. Nylon cams are then mounted behind this mechanism and spring-loaded electrical contacts slide around these cams. The cams are notched or cut where the contact should close to complete an electrical circuit.
In electrical engineering, a switch is an electrical component that can disconnect or connect the conducting path in an electrical circuit, interrupting the electric current or diverting it from one conductor to another. The most common type of switch is an electro-mechanical device consisting of one or more sets of movable electrical contacts connected to external circuits. When a pair of contacts is touching, current can pass between them, while when the contacts are separated no current can flow.
