Laptop/Desktop PC Optical Probes

Intelliprobe offers a series of optical probes designed to transfer data between desktop or laptop computers and electric meters designed in accordance to ANSI C12.18 or IEC 62056 (formerly IEC 1107) protocols.

The iP500-330 series of probes are designed to communicate with ANSI meters via the PC’s Serial (RS232) communications ports. These probes come with a DB9 (9-Pin) connector and an additional 6-Pin PS/2 or USB cable to supply power to the probe.

The iP500-300 series of probes are designed to communicate with ANSI meters via the PC’s USB ports. These probes come with a Type A USB male connector and get their power from the USB port. USB Drivers are required to be installed in the PC and they are provided with the probes or can be downloaded from our website.

All these probes are constructed with aluminum housings and the most rugged coiled cables available that withstand the harshest environments. As an option, we also offer these probes with straight cables measuring 5 feet (1.5 meters) long.
