Flow Monitoring System for Municipal Water, Wastewater Applications

July 6, 2011

BW DIGI-METER Ò F-2000 Series electronic insertion-style flowmeters are ideal for monitoring flow in municipal water and wastewater applications. The clamp-on saddle fitting and insertion sensor is quickly installed on IPS (ASTM-D-1785) pipe sizes from 1 ½-inch through 12 inches and metric (DIN 8062) pipe sizes from 50mm through 315mm. The electronic display and communication enclosure can be mounted directly to the sensor, or remotely mounted to a pipe or panel. Standard F-2000 models display flow rate and accumulated total flow, and include an NPN open collector output for communication with data loggers, SCADA systems, and other external devices. Optional 4-20 mA / 0-10 VDC plug-in circuitry can be added for additional communication requirements. The optional batch processing plug-in circuitry includes an 8-amp relay board that adds manual or automatic batch processing capability, or a high/low flow rate alarm output. The electronics can be battery operated using four standard AA size batteries or, AC powered using a 15-24V DC plug-in transformer.
