OK so to get how this works, you need to know how DI/Canticles work:

 

 
"If every unit from your army has the adeptus mechanicus keyword (excluding agent of the imperium, unaligned, and KNIGHT OF THE COG units) this unit receives xxx."
 
 
"Knights of the Cog" lets you give the "knights of the cog" keyword to one super heavy AUXILARY detachment (not super heavy detachment), as long as you have included an admech detachment prior to this. Which then makes it eligible for the above 'excludes')
 
Basically this means you can include 1 SHAD per admech detachment, without losing any canticles/imperative on your admech.
 
So yep, including a knight with your battalion should be fine!
 
 
NOTE - Currently Metallica have a way of including several Raven knights without losing canticles, as long as you use the 'knight of the iron cog' start on every knight pre-battle.
