Optical probe OP-205 for smart metering

The optical probe OP-205 for smart metering is an interface for data exchange between a consumption meter (eg, electric meter, gas meter, heating meter, water meter, etc.) and a peripheral device via infrared optical waves. The optical reading head is manufactured in accordance with the standard IEC 62056-21 (IEC 1107) and is compatible with all consumption meters that support this European standard.

Our optical probe OP-205 has on one end an Micro-USB-B connector which can be connected to a peripheral device that supports USB-Host. There is a fix mounted magnetic ring on the other end of the optical reading head OP-210, which will be docked on your counter.

Please note that additional, specific software is necessary to exchange data between the consumption meter and your peripheral device.

Of course, we can customize the optical interface OP-205 to your individual needs.
