Magnetic flow meters (MAG flow meters) are volumetric flow meters that operate without any moving parts and are ideal for potable water and wastewater applications as well as ideal for any conductive or water based clean or dirty fluid.  Magnetic flow meters will generally not work with hydrocarbons, distilled water, and many non-aqueous solutions as they require a conductive fluid of 5 microSiemens/cm minimum.

Mag Meter Product Overview

The table below gives a guideline of the nominal maximum GPM for various pipe sizes. Flows in well designed piping systems, to minimize wear and noise, and energy, are typically no more than 3 m/s max. Note these meters can easily go to 15 m/s for systems, such as high pressure fire fighting systems and blowdown systems.

Quick video above showing how to use the front panel buttons. The SECRET password to CHANGE variables is 03210 where 00521 is for VIEWING only. To get back to NORMAL operation hold the Enter button (the right most button) for 3 to 5 seconds. Password to Configure Calibration is 19818

Video above shows how to set up the Flow Units and Full Scale for those units. Note that this scaling is for driving the 4-20 mA and the frequency output so that the Full Scale value at 20 mA and at full scale Frequency is the number that is set. In this case the 4-20 and the frequency will output 20 mA and 5,000 Hz when the display shows 200 GPM. If the display goes OVER 200 GPM the 4-20 and the Frequency will increase until it "bumps it's head" on the maximum value. If the value on the display is GREATER than the value in Full Scale then one would adjust this value to accommodate the anticipated maximum value.

The video above shows how to set up the meter for Pulse and Frequency and shows how the 4-20 mA is configured. 

Simulating and validating the 4-20 mA output using the User Interface with 03210is detailed below. You may ALTER these values (AnalogZero and AnlgRange) using 03210 and they will revert when you exit.

Note the 4-20 mA output for this meter is POWERED by the meter. DO NOT connect to a PLC that provides 24 VDC. Connection is made to the 4-20 mA signal using a reading mode just like a Fluke Meter configured to read 4-20 mA DC. The MAG meter provides the 24 VDC for outputting the value to the INPUT of your PLC. Every PLC has the ability to be configured to read this type of 4-20 mA output. (Note: From the main menu the AnalogZero is 49 hits of the UP arrow.) (ADJUSTMENT of the 4-20 Output drive is attained using secret password of 19818 and is risky to use.)

If the meter has been installed the wrong direction you may REVERSE the flow

For FORWARD Flow Direction:
Menu 8, Flow Direct FORWARD requires Menu 13: SegmaN Ena to DISABLE

For REVERSE Flow Direction:
Menu 8, Flow Direct REVERSE   requires Menu 13: SegmaN Ena to ENABLE

IMPORTANT NOTE: This meter is not a "Loop Powered" device, unlike almost all temperature and pressure transducers that are loop powered. This meter takes 500 mA to run so you can see that they can not be Loop Powered. It is CRITICAL that 24 VDC is NOT connected to the 4-20 mA signal lines of COM and I+ where COM is connected to the "low" side,-, of the 4-20 mA and the I+ is connected to the "high" side,+. Your PLC has a mode in it to read these meters that does NOT involve sending power to the meter. These meters are SOURCING the 24 VDC. Connecting 24 VDC to the Current Output lines may void warranty.

How to Simulate 4-20 mA on the MAG Meter.

 The video below shows how to VALIDATE the 4-20 mA signal into your PLC or reading device. Note: If this DOES NOT WORK a likely cause is the power supply does not have enough "power" to provide to the meter. The meter requires a MAX of 500 mA so have a power supply that has the capability to DELIVER 500 mA, even on "start up" where the inrush current given to the electromagnetic coils can rush over 500mA for a few milliseconds.

How to Reset the Totalizer in the MAG Meter. The Password to set the password for the totalizer reset is 19818.  We show Clr Sum Key as the 24'th element in the menu structure. The video shows how to set the Totalizer Reset password to 10000.
