optical probes are no longer in production.


The ABACUS ELECTRICS IEC optical probes are bi-directional interface devices utilising infra-red light. Connecting to the serial port of a computer or hand-held terminal they permit galvanically isolated communication with utility tariff meters as specified in European Standard IEC 62056-21:2002 (formerly IEC1107:1996).

Probes are available for use with lap-top or desk-top computers, and also for use with a variety of the hand-held computers commonly used for field data collection.

The F9U probe has a USB connection and derives its power from the host computer.

The F6Z Zero-Power IEC optical probe is convenient to use, as no battery or power supply connection is needed.  Fitted with a standard 9-pin 'D' connector it plugs directly into the serial port of a lap-top or desk-top computer.
 
The model F6R powered probe is offered with various connector types to suit different hand-held computers.  This probe requires +5 volt power which is available through the hand-held computer serial port connector.
