    Depends.

    The only difference is the number of pulses per revolution. If those pulses are counted electronically and used for position reference or other positional accuracy function then you will have to adapt the software to take into account the extra pulses (i.e. divide by 3.6).

    Without knowing your application we cannot comment further.
