SITRANS F M MAG 8000 / MAG 8000 CT

Water flow meter


The SITRANS F M MAG 8000 program of battery-operated water meters gives you the flexibility to install a reliable water flow meter virtually anywhere without sacrificing accuracy or performance. No mains power is required. MAG 8000 complies with the custody transfer approvals MID and OIML R49 water meter standards and is specially engineered for stand-alone water applications such as abstraction, distribution network, revenue metering and irrigation.

Application Examples: Abstraction and distribution network, Revenue and bulk metering and Irrigration

The SITRANS F M MAG 8000 program features a basic version for general water applications or an advanced version for more advanced functionality and information.

An optional built-in 3G/UMTS Wireless Communication Module allows for remote reading of comprehensive measurement data via a variety of protocols, e.g. SMS, SMTP(S) or FTP(S) – keeping the operator up-to-date regardless of location and making it possible to qualify the device without visiting the site.

The flowmeter can be combined with the energy calculator SITRANS FUE950.

  • Simple meter placement - floating chamber IP 68 (NEMA 6P) design ensures continuous filterless performance regardless of position or in-line piping stresses, even when buried underground

  • Low pressure loss - unrestricted flow tube ensures minimal pressure loss even at high flow rates and reduces overall network system pressure, helping to prevent leakage from burst pipes and excess stress placed on pumping stations

  • Zero maintenance – no moving parts and up to 15-year battery life with external 4-D cell battery pack

  • Bi-directional measurement - only one meter required for measurement in both directions

  • Installation requires 0D inlet to and outlet from the sensor - eliminating concerns about where the meter is installed

  • Intelligent meter – capable of leak detection, data logging and error self-detection

  • Remote capabilities – stay up-to-date on measurement data without having to visit the site through optional 3G/UMTS Wireless Communication Module
