Reed switch for water meter

Does anyone know where I can find a T-Probe reed switch used to count pulses on volumetric water meters?

Any leads will be great!

Thanks

Microrobotics sells some models. Just check on their site.

I wasn’t able to find the one above, they seem to be quite elusive.

I have a suspicion that if you buy a garden variety reed switch that goes with a security system (the magnet+sensor you mount on doors), and you removed the little glass tube with the reed in it, wrapped it in a bit of heat shrink or similar, and just shoved it down the hole… it would likely work just fine.

Good idea, thanks.

These reed switches are pretty cheap so worth the shot.

Seems like this is your only option for the original:

Otherwise, this should do:

Or you could just go with heatshrink.

The one on Flows.com is where I got the picture. Elster Kent (Honeywell) makes these water meters so I have also reached out to them.

Will probably have to use these from RS or the altered ones like @plonkster suggested.

Thanks for all the suggestions
