The K01-ANSI optical probe enables data transfer between devices equipped with a serial interface and consumption meters with optical interface in accordance with ANSI C12.18-1996 and AS 1284.10.2-1993. The probe’s signal level is selectable. Optical reflections in the probe are eliminated as standard: if optical reflections should be required, a “clean” electrical echo in the probe can be generated.
The ergonomic casing prevents the daylight filter from being scratched because the filter can be easily restored. Horizontal grooves improve grip.
