Re: Reading Gas meter

This is a std meter with a magnetic pulse, as there is no electrical connection !

It just has a mechanical totaliser with magnetic pulse for an additional electrical totaliser module, TCR5000 will not work

So a magnetic pulse sensor or similar reed or hall sensor should work.
