  • High-precision water metering – no compromises necessary
  • 2-channel analog input measurement for external ratiometric pressure transmitter, transmission together with flow measurement (2-in-1 solution)
  • 4-20 mA alarm signal detection and realtime SMS alarm for tamper  protection and flooding situations
  • Real-time clock synchronization with internet NTP server, ensuring that all
  • measurement data is accurately time-stamped
  • Data transmission at customer-specified points in time, allowing for  synchronization of information from multiple MAG 8000 devices
  • Seamless communication via both the 2G and 3G networks

To enhance operational efficiency, improve billing accuracy and significantly reduce costs, the SITRANS F M MAG 8000 includes a built-in wireless automated meter reading (AMR) solution designed for use in Water Fixed Networks. Flow measurement data from any site can be accessed via a web browser and secure password protection. The MAG 8000 also features a standard IrDA interface for configuration, data collection and documentation using SIMATIC Process Device Manager or Flow Tool software. For remote monitoring of water applications, a compact wireless communication module can be added to log all data from the meter and transmit it via FTP, email or SMS at customizable intervals throughout the day. chemical.

The 3G/UMTS-based wireless communication module collects measurement data from meters anywhere in the world covered by the 3G/2G network. Alarms from the MAG 8000 are sent immediately to the customer once an alarm signal is detected by the module at a minimum sample interval of 1 minute.

MAG 8000 3G communication allows for data transmission via numerous protocols including SMS, email via SMTP, email via SMTPS (TLS/SSL-based encryption), FTP, and FTPS (TLS/SSL-based encryption). This provides customers with the flexibility to receive data via email or text message as well to relay data directly to internet capable monitoring and control systems anywhere in the world.  The MAG 8000 also ensures the security of transmitted data to the levels required by individual customer standards.

With comprehensive data collection and logging options, advanced diagnostic functions and the capability for remote monitoring, the SITRANS FM MAG 8000 keeps you fully in control of your water application - whether you're on-site or on-the-go.
