Ocala, Florida, July 22, 2002 -- ABB Water Meters has announced the release of AquaMaster S, an integrated water measurement system for potable water with outstanding accuracy, and combining flow, pressure measurement and datalogging in a single unit. AquaMaster S incorporates the revenue improvement and cost saving features of AquaMaster while eliminating system interconnection and configuration issues, improved data resolution and assured reliable start-up. AquaMaster S is available in sizes 5/8” to 24”, and either AC-powered with battery back up or battery powered.
The AquaMaster S submersible Electronic Display Unit, in an IP68 (NEMA 6P) housing that can be installed up to 650 feet from the sensor, provides the most comprehensive range of flow data and information currently available to the water industry. The display incorporates a multi-channel, multi-variable logger that can run at two speeds simultaneously, enabling the user to investigate, in precise detail, the flow and pressure activity over the desired period. For revenue applications, not only is the flow and pressure logged information available, but included is a totalizer and tariff logger that logs all volume totals (forward, reverse, net) and tariff reading totals every midnight and stores the information for 366 days.
The AquaMaster’s internal loggers feature an advanced, automatic time synchronization feature that ensures operation on synchronized time boundaries, no matter what logging interval is set. This feature allows flow and pressure data, when combined with data from other meters, to be precisely synchronized, for precise system balance.
ABB supplies AquaMaster S with LogMaster software, a simple-to-use PC software program that provides local communication to the meter. It enables full control and downloading of the datalogger for export of logger data for charting in Microsoft™ Excel or similar spreadsheets. AquaMaster S is also available with a variety of industry-standard third party software for downloading, managing, analysis and display of data.
The AquaMaster S battery-powered Electronic Water Meter operates between 99.5% and 100.5% over a broad normal operating range. AC-powered AquaMaster units operate between 99.75% and 100.25% over an even broader flow range: on the 4” size between 10 gpm and 1268 gpm. AquaMaster also offers low flow accuracy comparable to mechanical designs. On its 2” size, AquaMaster measures flows as low as 0.18 gpm (AC) and 0.4 gpm (battery).
