Options for Comfortable Navigation

To house various user needs and preferences, the EPOCH 650 comes in two hardware configurations:

Knob

The EPOCH 650’s adjustment knob has been utilized together with the CHECK and ESC keys to adjust parameter values in either coarse or fine increments. Users have the potential to lock the knob to avoid accidental parameter value changes at the time of an inspection.

This configuration offers smooth value slewing for customers who want to adjust parameters when a knob is being used. The knob configuration has been developed to fulfill the requirements of IP66.
