Default Chip Detector

We are seeking a chip detector for our gearbox. The fitting is 3/8 NPT Pipe Thread. Looked online, but no luck.

Anyone here know where to get one of these?

Default 1/2 NPT chip detector

I am currently in the prototype design stage of manufacturing Chip Detectors with 1/2 NPT. If things go good we will be introducing some strait thread units and maybe a 3/8 NPT unit. The design will remain the same the packaging will need to be modified for the smaller units. Expected retail is going to be in the 139.00 range. Should have usable units in 90 days.
