How to connect other racing wheel brands to the Fanatec wheel base?

How can I connect any racing wheel to the Fanatec wheel base?
Many sim racers nowadays have (or will opt) for a Fanatec wheelbase due to the Fanatec eco-system. Once you buy a Fanatec wheelbase, you have no choice but to buy a Fanatec racing wheel. However, from now on there is a solution to this problem. Fanatec came with a great solution, the Fanatec Podium Hub. Thanks to the Podium Hub you as a sim racer can finally connect different sim racing steering wheels from other brands to your Fanatec wheelbase!

Integrating a dedicated ARM processor, the Podium Hubis low latency, firmware upgradeable, and supports 10 buttons and dual 16-bit resolution analogue inputs. Additional buttons, axes, and displays can be connected via the data port.

You can use the Podium Hubto mount wheel rims from Fanatec and other manufacturers. Easily upgrade and customize using Fanatec modular components.

The Fanatec Podium Hub is compatible with racing wheels using the 6x70mm or 3x50mmbolt pattern. It's possible to run third-party racing wheels on PC with a USB cable as used on the OSW Direct Drive.

The Fanatec Podium Hub has connectors for the Podium Advanced Paddle Module, two Universal Hub button clusters, and a data port connector for attaching Fanatec button or display modules. Thanks to the included ClubSportQuick Release Adapter you can connect your racing wheel directly to the Fanatec CSL, ClubSport, or Podium wheelbases.
