Siemens Industry (Harleysville, PA) manufactures instrumentation for the industrial process sphere, including solutions for flow, level, and pressure. Typical served industries include chemical, food & beverage, power & energy, mining, oil & gas, and water & wastewater.

The Siemens FM Mag6000 (pictured left) is a popular magnetic flow meter transmitter that is suitable for a broad range of water and wastewater flow metering applications. The Mag6000 features traditional 4-20 milliamp and pulse SCADA signals, as well as fieldbus protocols.

Like most mains-powered process magnetic flow meters, the Mag6000 does not offer native AMI/AMR-compatibility. However, SCADAmetrics is pleased to announce that today’s firmware release for the Model MBE Encodalizer now 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!

The following illustrates a typical application of the Mag6000/Encodalizer pair into a potable water distribution or wastewater system — where both AMI and SCADA signaling are desired:

Connection of the Encodalizer to the Mag6000 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.
