I am confused about the range of motion of a potentiomter with respect to its base (by base I mean the edge that lays flat on on the PCB when its mounted).
Basically, will the counter clockwise (CCW) position (i.e. start zero position in case of log taper) always be as shown in the image??
What adds to my confusion is this potentiometer datasheet -- http://www.mouser.com/ds/2/414/p260-12592.pdf On page 4, there is a section called "Shaft position" which shows different angles. Is this showing just the position of the notch/slot/flat edge when the pot is in full CCW position, while the "rotation" CCW starting position is still as shown in my sketch??
