gas meter reed switch pulse counter

3D printed mount for reed switch, to connect my itron gas meter to the loxone home automation system

Similar projects worth following
I made a small 3D printed mount for a reed switch. This connects directly to a module in the loxone system allowing me to get accurate meter readings in the home automation system.

I printed the mount, made the tiny board.  

Then I used a hot glue gun to glue the board onto the mount.  And then held the reed switch in place with tape whilst soldering it onto the board.

    Step 1

    For using the pulse counter with loxone- to convert the m3 gas into kWh that loxone uses, I use a conversion factor of 9.184 as shown- I think this gives reasonable accuracy.
