The pot works as expected. As mentioned in the comments there is no pinout diagram on the datasheet, though it was very easy to determine which pin does what by using a multimeter.
The datasheet also states that the two mounting holes are for M2 screws. I’ve tried various screws, even went out to buy a specific M2 kit from a local electronics store but they don’t work. It looks like the 4 pots I ordered aren’t even threaded to accept a screw. A little disappointed by this.
UPDATE: I bought an inexpensive tap and die set and tapped the holes to M3x0.5 screws. Cuts close to the outer edge of the pot, but at least I can mount it now.
Sorry to hear about these issues with the threading. We will contact our supplier to see if they can correct this issue for future parts that they send us.
