Endress+Hauser USA (Greenwood, IN) manufactures instrumentation for the industrial process sphere, including solutions for flow, level, pressure, and temperature. Typical served industries include chemical, food & beverage, life sciences, power & energy, mining, minerals, metals, oil & gas, and water & wastewater.
The Endress+Hauser Promag W 400 (pictured left) is a popular magnetic flow meter that is suitable for a broad range of water and wastewater flow metering applications. The Promag features traditional 4-20 milliamp and pulse SCADA signals, as well as the EtherNet/IP network protocol.
Like most mains-powered process magnetic flow meters, the Promag W 400 does not offer native AMI/AMR-compatibility. However, SCADAmetrics is pleased to announce that today’s firmware release for the Model MBE Encodalizer™ adds Neptune and Sensus encoder protocols to this important flow meter, so that it may now be easily integrated into today’s modern AMI/AMR systems!
Connection of the Encodalizer to the Promag could not be easier: Two (2) wires interconnect the instruments (Modbus+ and Modbus–). Configuration of the Encodalizer is also straightforward, requiring setup via 16 integral DIP switches from a lookup table.
AMI and Ethernet-Based SCADA Solution
The following illustrates a typical application of the Promag/Encodalizer pair into a potable water distribution or wastewater system — where both AMI and Ethernet-based SCADA signaling are desired:
