McCrometer’s Ultra Mag’s Use in SCADA Systems

McCrometer’s Ultra Mag® remains a superb tool for water and wastewater applications. McCrometer recently published a new case study illustrating the Ultra Mag’s installation and commissioning for use in a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system.

The venue where the Ultra Mag is being utilized includes a custody-transfer valve and metering station where a regional water district is responsible for selling water to a local rural municipality. All of the station’s flow rates and meter readings are tracked at all times to ensure proper billing and operations monitoring. Hence, SCADA readings that line up with the transmitter readings are a must, and this is referred to as revenue-grade accuracy. Previously, a legacy turbine-based flow meter that had been installed had to undergo multiple replacements due to wear and tear of the part. The Ultra Mag being a solid-state flow meter, it was deemed suitable for preventing such future problems.

When the Ultra Mag is equipped with the “Smart Output” option, the flow meter becomes a versatile solution capable of functioning as a powerful AMR/AMI-compatible flow meter. When it is operating in this manner, the Ultra Mag is able to communicate its Totalizer and Flow-Rate to an EtherMeter-equipped SCADA System or AMR System with the aforementioned revenue-grade accuracy.
