These systems are an expansion off Elma Electronic's line of knob figure dials. They feature SMD LEDs on a flexible PCB strip inside a figure dial made out of special lightguide material, illuminating figure dials under a knob regardless of the ambient light. They come with illuminated indicator lines, dots, and customized versions in super-red, yellow, orange, green, blue and white. Colored lightguide figure dials and mixtures of colors are available via special order. They work with 20-30 mm Elma knob sizes in several styles. Standard or custom lightguide markings are on the underside of the dial so they won't wear off. Elma Electronic Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-587
