Water distribution systems, though mostly invisible to the general public, are highly complex infrastructure arrangements that extend to a very large number of locations throughout a service area. Monitoring the activity and operational health of the distribution system, key to maintaining high levels of efficiency and service, requires measurement instrumentation installed throughout the system.

Magnetic flowmeters are an integral part of water system instrumentation. Their advantages for use in water systems were outlined in a previous article on how magnetic flowmeters work. McCrometer is an innovator in the design and manufacture of magnetic flowmeters for water system flow measurement. Their Smart Output™ technology is available for use with full bore flanged and insertion style flowmeters to provide the information needed for modern water system operation.

  • AC or DC powered versions
  • Compatible with Sensus and Itron smart water networks
  • Enables networking of water meters throughout distribution system
  • Queries, diagnostics, and data transfer can be scheduled or on demand
  • Enables AMR (Automatic Meter Reading) and AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure)
The Smart Output™ function is an additional module included as part of the instrument transmitter.
