Siemens introduces water flow measurement tool for crop irrigation

• The Sitrans FM MAG 8000 for Irrigation combines the Siemens MAG 8000 transmitter with a specialized sensor to ensure the management of water resources for irrigation purposes, while preventing water loss and waste.

Siemens has introduced the Sitrans FM MAG 8000 for Irrigation battery-operated electromagnetic flow meter, designed as a cost-efficient water metering solution to manage water consumption for applications such as water distribution, revenue metering and crop irrigation.

The Sitrans FM MAG 8000 for Irrigation combines the Siemens MAG 8000 transmitter with a specialized sensor to ensure the management of water resources for irrigation purposes, while preventing water loss and waste.

The Sitrans FM MAG 8000 for Irrigation features battery power for installation where power availability is a concern. 

The unit maintains a measurement accuracy rate of 0.8 percent, and as there are no moving parts, the meter is not prone to typical wear and tear, thus reducing maintenance and operational costs. 

The meter’s IP68 enclosure offers security and durability in flood-prone areas, or even underground.  Optional communication modules are also available, ensuring the MAG 8000 Irrigation is up-to-date with the latest technology.
