Ask a Question
  • Will the RS-485 work with the Omnimeter 1v.3? Do I need more to do a hard wired remote read?

    Yes, the RS232 to RS485 converter can be used to read your Omnimeter I v.3 over RS485.  As long as your computer has a RS232 port, this device will work well for you.  If you only have USB ports then the USB to RS485 converter would work for you instead.

    The only other thing you would need is the twisted pair wire that is hardwired between the converter and the Omnimeter.  Here is the CAT5 cable we sell for this purpose as an example.
