Do you have some form of Wiring diagram to show how the 3 poles connect with the 12 outer terminals in the  different positions of the rotating part?.  Does it rotate a full 360 degrees or only (as appears to be the case with the one i have 210 degrees

Asked by: Somesaysparks

Is there a suitable knob for this switch, and how would it be securely attached onto the switch? Many Thanks.

The switch is a 4 way switch. In answer to another question, you say it has an off position (True North). Is the switch:- • 4 way + off, or • 3 way + off (making a total of 4 ways)? Many thanks.

Asked by: Antares sector
This is 4 way including off.
