Landis+Gyr USB200 Optical Probe Installation Instructions
INSTALLATION Note: You must first install the driver before connecting the USB Probe to your
computer or handheld USB port. The USB Probe installation will not work
properly if the Probe is connected to a computer or handheld device before the
software driver is installed.
The recommended procedure to install the USB200 Optical Probe and driver software is
as follows:
1. Close all active applications on your computer and remove any attached probe
before proceeding with this software driver installation process.
2. If you have installed a previous version of these drivers, you will need to remove
them first.
a. From the Control Panel select Add or Remove Programs.
b. In the list of Currently Installed Programs find Landis + Gyr USB Optical
Probe Controller and click Change/Remove.
c. Accept the prompt to remove the drivers.
3. Insert the driver disk or extract the downloaded zip file.
4. Open the Landis+Gyr USB200 Driver folder and double click setup.exe.
5. After launching the setup, click the Install button if you are satisfied with the
installation location or select the Change Install Location button if you wish to
change it.

6. When the installation process is complete you will be prompted to restart your
PC. Please do so before inserting a Landis + Gyr USB Optical Probe.
7. Plug in your Landis + Gyr USB Optical Probe into your computer’s USB port to
complete the installation process. Once the USB Probe is plugged in, Found New
Hardware should appear, and installation of the Probe will begin automatically.

remove the USB Probe from the computer’s USB port and use Window Device
Manager to manually delete the USB Probe or Unknown Device from the list of
devices. After manual removal of the USB Probe, proceed with step 1 of the
installation instructions.

OPERATION The USB200 Optical Probe has strong magnets in the headshell to improve handling
during meter reading and programming operations. Power to the USB200 is supplied by
the USB port eliminating the need for battery packs and/or AC Power supply. The
USB200 Optical Probe, with its data rate of 57,600 bits per second, is designed to meet
the needs of meter communications as technology evolves. The USB cable is detachable
and, if necessary, can be easily replaced by a standard off the shelf USB Type A Male to
Type B Male cable from most electronic supply stores.
