The new iP501-124 ANSI Universal Optical Probes are designed for reading and programming ANSI electrical power meters. NOW, OUR NEW DESIGN INCORPORATES A SMALLER HOUSING FOR LIGHTER WEIGHT. In addition, the new smaller housing design is still rugged with its Polycarbonate Glass Fiber Reinforcement material.
These probes are configured for use with Itron’s G5, G5R and FC200/FC300 handheld computers. Their optical circuitry supports ANSI C12.18-1996 and 2006 communications protocols. They obtain their power directly from the handheld computer and it is controlled by the meter reading software.
The NEW iP501-124 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 polyurethane molded cable 18” long that withstands the outside rugged environment. This claim is backed with an aggressive warranty and service policy.
** We recommend special care when attaching the probe connector to the handheld communications port (receptacle) to avoid bending or damaging the connector contacts. Please refer to the “Hirose Plug Connections Procedure” to view proper probe connection to handheld**
