State-of-the Art Battery powered electromagnetic flow meter SITRANS Mag8000 manufactured by Siemens monitors every drop of water usage very accurately and increases the revenue of the water companies. The meter is capable of remote data transmission using radio signals that can be integrated into drive-by or fixed Automated Meter Reading Systems OR using 2G/3G Cellular networks. The data from the meter can be utilized to detect the leaks in advance before the pipes burst and provide the meter health data and other information such as pressure and/or water conductivity in the water distribution lines. The meter is far more accurate at low flows compared to the traditional mechanical meters and other metering technologies. The installation and start-up of the meters can be done very quickly. The paper will discuss the recent design advancements in software, self checking capabilities and remote data acquisition with the help of the installed base in Canada and the user benefits.
