Sounds like you need a rotary decoder for that, as you will need to convert from a 3 pin set-up to a 4 pin set-up. I'm not sure if REDEC covers these, but it may be worth looking at.Either that or you disassemble the rotary and separate the pins. This does mean you'll have to manually bridge the pins as per the FSBus setup, but if you can do this it'll be cheaper than buying/making a board to convert the signals.

Hi >>could you show how you rewired the rotary switch to make it work please?the only think that i make is to open the switch and remove the small very small parts that are not need any more.With the normal rotary switches this process is not need it.Lambis
