Hello

Newbie here... Accidentally fried the reed switch on my superjack during installation.

What would be the best replacement for the reed switch. Read some threads about it but they're 8-12yrs old.

Here's a pic of the fried switch

Hi -
I,v struggled a bit to find these in the past ... a search of e-bay (satellite actuator reed switch) brought up an Australian supplier ... cheap but a bit costly on the postage ... I know satellite superstore up in the N.E. uk have them - 3 types listed on their website .. but at a price ... might work out more than the Australian one :eek:...
regards ..

Can the ones used on Windows/Door security sensors work?

Hi-
I,v never tried one ... but in theory i think it should do ... the problem is they are quite large and it may be difficult to get it positioned near enough to the Magnet wheel for it to work properly ?

Some SAT-related hardware.

N-E from Riga
Friend of mine gave to me several elements of security system (new, in original packages). I broke plastic boxes and removed the reed switches. So, if somebody needs couple of them he can have them for price of shipping. PM if interested.
