Replacing broken window contact

One of the window contacts in our house recently broke and I was having a hard time finding the same replacement contact. We have a DSC PK5508 keypad and I attached a picture of a working window contact.

Will any contact with terminals work as a replacement?

Thanks for the help!

One popular replacement is from GRI. It's the 100-T with screw terminals or the 100-12 with a short tail of wire. Basically any mini surface mount alarm switch will work.

Ended up getting a Honeywell one, packaging says its rated for 100mA @ 28VDC. Didn't see anywhere about ratings so wanted to make sure that was OK.

Thanks again!

That's fine. That's a typical rating for a mini magnetic switch.
