OVERVIEW

The NEW iP501-124 Universal Optical Probes are designed for reading and programming ANSI and IEC electrical power meters. NOW, THERE IS NO NEED TO CARRY 2 OPTICAL PROBES FOR READING OR PROGRAMMING METERS THAT EMPLOY EITHER TYPE OF OPTICAL PORTS. In addition, these new probes incorporate a smaller housing design that makes them even more light-weight but still rugged with their Polycarbonate Glass Fiber Reinforcement material.

These probes are configured for use with Itron’s G5, FC200/FC300 handheld computers. Their optical circuitry supports ANSI C12.18-1996, IEC 62056-21 (1107) as well as General Electric OPTOCOM communications protocols by switching automatically from one to the other depending on the meter type being read. This design feature make them universally compatible to read virtually all utility meters, registers, and recorders. They obtain their power directly from the handheld computer and it is controlled by the meter reading software.

For reading and programming ANSI meters, the optical probe is attached to the meter’s optical port in the standard position (cable facing downwards) and for IEC meters the probe is attached to the meter’s optical port inverted (cable facing upwards).

The NEW iP501-124 Optical Probes sovle problems relateing to mechancical wear-out due to teh demanidn enviroment under which probes are constatnly subjected to . We address this problem using the most rugged machancial and electricl design in the industry. These probes are designed with an amlmost indestructible Polycarbonate head that contains pwerful magnets that ensure a good retention when attached to the meter’s optical port. THey are also designed with high-endurnance polyutrthane molded cable 18” long that withstand the outside rugged environment. THis claim is backed with an aggressive warranty and service policy.
