Features & Benefits

  • Only One Moving Part - The Impeller - In Contact With The Water
    For minimum wear and utmost reliability.
  • Magnetic Driven Sealed Registers Are Stainless Steel/Composite Encapsulated
    Guaranteed against fogging due to moisture.
  • Accurate Over A Wide Range Of Flows
    For flexible and efficient water management.
  • Industry's Longest Warranty
    Three years on the metering components (register and metering assembly) and five years on the meter body.

Applications

  • Use smaller sized meters as sub-meter for residential or commercial applications
  • Communicate with irrigation controllers and measures water usage for effective water management

Straight Pipe Installation
Required for Water Meters 2" and Larger

When water flows through a pipe, any transition through a fitting, elbow, or change in pipe size causes turbulence in the water. In order to eliminate water turbulence, some water meters require straight pipe before and after the water meter. Straight pipe installation refers to the length of straight pipe needed before (upstream of the water meter) and after (downstream of the water meter).

The 3/4", 1" and 1 1/2" Water Meters do not require straight pipe installation, but a 5 x diameter before and 2 x diameter straight pipe installation after the meter is recommended. (Diameter = Meter Size)
The 2" Water Meter requires straight pipe installation of 10 x diameter before and 5 x diameter straight pipe installation after the meter.
The 3", 4" and 6" Water Meters require straight pipe installation of 5 x diameter before and 2 x diameter straight pipe installation after the meter.
Continuous Acting Air Vents are used to remove air from the system for accurate metering. Proper air vent selection and placement within the system is critical.

Water Meters Registers

Available Register Options

Netafim USA has two types of transducer outputs available which provide two levels of resolution:

REED SWITCH (RS) REGISTER

The reed switch register is a dry contact or simple switch closure for communicating with control and monitoring equipment. Flows are totaled in U.S. Gallons based on the multiplication factors indicated on the dial face.


PHOTO DIODE HIGH FREQUENCY (PDH) REGISTER

A photo coupler sensor that provides a high frequency pulse output for communicating with control and monitoring equipment. Flows are totaled in U.S. Gallons based on the multiplication factors indicated on the dial face.


ELECTRONIC (ER) DIGITAL REGISTER

Combines standard digital register features with dry pulse output for communicating with control and monitoring equipment. Rate of flow and volume readings in U.S. Gallons are clearly displayed on the LCD display.
