CHANGING ROTARY DETENTS
Not sure if I should post it here.
How should I bypass detents on a 3 pole 12 position rotary switch?
I need to use it for Battery Standby, and Hydraulics on the LDL767, and they are 90 degrees apart.
My question is what pins would I choose so that I can get the contact change on a 90 deg turn?
Positions: 1 2 3 4 . 5 6 7 8 . 9 10 11 12.
Poles. A .B. C.
Is this at all possible?
Thanks for your help guys.

Re: CHANGING ROTARY DETENTS
In a 3 pole 4 position switch there is no way to tell apart position number 5 and 9 from position 1. They are exactly the same.
You are better off with 1 pole 12 position switch where you can use positions that are 90 degrees apart.
Even better if you get a switch with 90 degrees indexing.
