Read Head

The Read Head, a wired cohort accessory for Edmi meters with a data rate of 57,600 bits per second, is developed to meet the needs of meter communications as technology evolves. The optical probe’s power is supplied by the computer’s host port, hence, eliminating the need for battery packs and/or AC power supply. It has been known for a practical approach in meter reading and programming.
