Kent, WA -- The Seametrics AG2000 magmeter has been approved and added to specification by the Coachella Valley Water District’s Materials Evaluation Committee.  Seametrics is pleased to provide an economical and durable solution to support the water infrastructure to over 100,000 homes and businesses in California’s Coachella Valley.

Seametrics AG2000 Magmeter
The AG2000 is a spool-type electromagnetic flowmeter for use in irrigation applications in 3” to 10” 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 mounted display can be added at the factory if remote rate/total reading is desired, or a blind analog transmitter where a (4-20 mA) analog signal is required.
