The newiP501-222 – ‘2S’ Universal Optical Probes are designed for reading and programming ANSI electrical power meters. They are designed with Straight gray cable measuring 6 feet or 2 meters long. They can also be manufactured in other custom lengths on request to facilitate the reading environments. 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 the Honeywell Dolphin 9900 handheld computers. Their optical circuitry supports ANSI C12.18-1996 or later communications protocol. The design features make them universally compatible to read virtually all ANSI utility meters, registers, and recorders. They obtain their power directly from the handheld computer and it is controlled by the meter reading software.
The NEW iP501-222 ‘2S’ 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.
