iP503-124 ANSI Itron G5/FC200/FC300 Universal Optical Probe NEW PRODUCT

OVERVIEW

The NEW iP503-124 ANSI Optical Probes are designed for reading and programming ANSI electrical power meters. They feature a Bi-Color LED on the probe cover to indicate TX and RX communication signals that turn RED and GREEN, respectively, while communicating with the meter. In addition, they incorporate a new smaller housing design that make them even lighter weight but still rugged with their Polycarbonate Glass Fiber Reinforcement material.

These probes are configured for use with Itron G5, G5R and FC200/FC300 handheld computers. Their optical circuitry supports ANSI C12.18-1996 and 2006 communication protocols. They obtain their power directly from the handheld computer and it is controlled by the meter reading software.

The NEW iP503-124 ANSI 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, flame retardant, polyurethane molded cable 18” long that withstands the outside rugged environment. This claim is backed with an aggressive warranty and service policy.
