These probes are configured for use with Desktop/Laptop computers ad Tablets employing USB 1.1 or 2.0 compatible interface ports. Their optical circuitry supports ANSI C12.18-1996 or 2006communications protocols as well asGE OPTOCOM. They are compatible with virtually all ANSI utility meters, registers and recorders. They derive power from the USB ports so there is no need for external Battery Packs or AC Adapters.
These probes come with Windows Device Drivers Software that create a Virtual Serial Port to communicate with the meter manufacturer’s windows based software. Installation and configuration instructions are included with the probes.
The NEW iP501-330 ANSIUSB Optical Probes solve problems relating to mechanical wear-out due to the demanding environment under which probes are constantly subjected to. We address this problem using the most rugged mechanical and electrical design in the industry. These probes are designed with an almost indestructible Polycarbonate head that contains powerful magnets that ensure a good retention when attached to the meter’s optical port. They are also designed with a high-endurance polyurethane molded cable 18” long that withstands the outside rugged environment. This claim is backed with an aggressive warranty and service policy.
