As you want only want to copy product from magento1 system,Then my suggestion, export all product from magento1 using Default Data flow export or Export.

Then import then them to magento2 using default import.

  • Thanks for the answer. But the example csv file for magento 2 has different attributes when compared to the exported csv file from Magento 1. Will it be compatible? – Pradeep Kalaimaran Sep 24 '17 at 9:15

It's highly recommended to use Official Magento Data Migration tool which will allow you migrate products, customer and more!
