  • $4,299.00

The Universal Probe for Reliable Meter Reading

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 many meter-reading devices. A Bluetooth® interface enables a wireless connection between the VersaProbe unit and the meter- reading device, if used.

The universal VersaProbe unit has the capability to read multiple brands of touch-read meters and registers, enabling cities and utilities to purchase meters under open, competitive bidding without concern for reader compatibility. The VersaProbe is upgradeable to support new touch-read products as they become available.

Advantages Over Manual Reading

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.


  • Transfers meter data directly to a handheld or collects readings for transfer to a PC using Alexander’s AMRS personal computer direct interface (PCCDI) software
  • Automatically determines which meter protocol to read
  • Transfers all data, including multipliers, tamper status, and battery status, as applicable, from the meter encoder
  • Uses Bluetooth for wireless connectivity
  • Serves as a visual reader for meter installation and inspection
  • Holds up to harsh, meter- reading environments through weather-resistant and rugged case design

Meter programming support for installation and configuration is
available for applicable meters.
