An optical reading head or Optical Probe is an interface. It is intended for two-way data exchange between a counter such as a electric meter, electricity meter, gas meter, heat meter, water meter, etc. and a peripheral device via infrared optical waves.
All our heads read or Optical probes work with optical infrared waves with the individual meter and are compliant to the standard IEC 62056-21 (formerly IEC 1107) or ANSI C12.18. Our products differ mainly on the signal output to the peripheral device.
Your preferred selection method and your reading device set significantly the right product and the output signal (RS-232, RS-485, TTL, USB or Bluetooth).
