M5000 Electromagnetic Flowmeter

Designed, developed, and manufactured under strict quality standards, the M5000 electromagnetic flow meter features sophisticated, processor-based signal conversion with accuracies of ± 0.4%. Based on Faraday’s Law of Induction, these meters can measure potable water, reclaimed water, groundwater, and clear, water-based applications that have minimal electrical conductivity.

With no moving parts in the flow stream, there is no pressure loss. Also, accuracy is not affected by temperature, pressure, viscosity, or density and there is practically no maintenance required. It is encased in an IP67 housing (optional IP68), which makes it a reliable meter even when submerged.


The M5000 mag meter is designed for applications without power line access, where flow is continuous, and when an indication of rate and totalization is required. The M5000 can accurately measure fluid flow—the fluid is potable or reclaimed water and can contain a moderate amount of solids. The meter is successfully used in water distribution networks and irrigation.

The standard meter is equipped with an internal datalogger or M-Bus interface, or optionally with an externally powered RS485 interface with Modbus®. The collected data can also be retrieved via radio frequency or GSM/GPRS. The data can then be centrally compiled and evaluated. The meter can be checked without process interruption using the Verification Device.
