06 August 2015 Question by: Mr H Norwood | Product code: 49-6175
Q. Hello, These encoders appear to have a slotted shaft, but your recommended knobs from the Cliff range appear to be for splined shafts. I would be grateful for clarification. Many thanks
A. Hi Mr Norwood, thank you for your question. These Encoders with 6mm Metal Shaft do accept 6mm splined knobs.
