ACS Technology and Innovation Ensures Accurate, Reliable Data Collection

At the forefront of the success of the collection of meter reading field data are field tough tools like the Alexander’s VersaProbe® touch read wand and the ultra-rugged and feature-rich Mobile Android products – Kyocera Duraforce Pro and Juniper Allegro 3 handheld devices. These tools combine feature, performance and reliability that are unmatched in the meter reading operations environment. The VersaProbe® Touch read wand and Android field handhelds are built to withstand the rigors of weather and drop and shock environments; further, they ensure consistent, quality data collection each and every day throughout the read process.

VersaProbe® – The Universal Probe for Reliable Meter Reading

The VersaProbe® was designed for the purpose of reading commercially-available direct-connect and inductively coupled utility meter register/encoders. The patented Alexander’s AMRS VersaProbe® unit operates as a standalone meter-reading device for touch-read meters and registers, or as a touch-read add-on to many meter-reading handheld devices such as the rugged Kyocera Duraforce Pro 2 Smart Phone and the Juniper Systems Allegro 3 Handheld. A Bluetooth® interface enables a wireless connection between the VersaProbe unit and the meter reading handheld device, if desired.

The VersaProbe® touch reader allows cities and utilities to read meters efficiently by automating the process of data collection, thereby eliminating read and transaction errors. VersaProbe® enables cost-effective touch reading by saving time and reducing meter reading expenses.
