PRLog - Jan. 13, 2014 - KENT, Wash. -- Seametrics has released a 12-inch meter in the AG2000 family of flanged magmeters. These meters are perfect for irrigation, chemigation, agricultural automation, well usage monitoring, and dairy lagoons.
Seametrics AG2000 Irrigation Magmeter
The AG2000 is a spool-type electromagnetic flow meter for use in irrigation applications in 3” to 12” pipe. With no moving parts, these meters provide unobstructed flow and are resistant to wear from debris found in ground or surface water. Little maintenance is required because there are no bearings to wear out or propellers to stop turning. Minimal straight pipe requirements allow AG2000 meters to be used in piping configurations where there is little space between the meter and an elbow.
The standard AG2000 is battery powered. Where an external power source is available, the AG2000 can be optionally converted to 8-32 Vdc, with the batteries then serving as back-up to maintain continuous operation in case of power failure. This configuration will prolong battery life indefinitely.
An IP68 version is available for burial or applications where the meter may be under water up to a depth of 3 meters for prolonged periods of time.
The meter comes with built-in pulse output for data logging or telemetry. Several pulse rates are available. An internal data logger is also available for secure flow logging. A Seametrics FT415W or FT420W display can be added if remote rate/total reading is desired, or an AO55W if a (4-20 mA) analog signal is required.
The AG2000 is secured with a seal wire to protect against unauthorized access. The seal can be broken by an authorized agent, to change units of measure, replace the battery pack, or to field-install an optional power/output cable. The cable can be factory or field-installed where external power is available and/or pulse output is needed. An accessory weather guard is available for additional protection in outdoor applications.
