I500 Electromagnetic Water Flow Transmitter

The i500 Electromagnetic Flowmeter is a no compromises, high accuracy, high capability, bullet-proof water flow transmitter and wastewater measurement device. It complies with the new Australian Standard AS/NZS 4747:2013 – Meters for Non-Urban Water Supply. It is a fully pattern approved instrument from DN1500 to DN600. The meter will meet the demanding requirements for accurate metering of irrigation supplies but is equally at home in other water supply applications including urban water (recycled water, distribution network and revenue monitoring), mining and environmental monitoring.

General Applications of Water flow transmitter

  • Ideally suited to remote mission-critical water and wastewater measurement applications
  • Suited to irrigation off-takes and water and wastewater treatment plants, mining and general industry applications
  • Additional capability to undertake basic control functions e.g. local off-take gates and valves and a variety of communications protocols to efficiently deliver output data
