ABB Instrumentation launched the WaterMaster series, a new range of electromagnetic flowmeters that is specifically targeted at water and wastewater markets. Part of the FlowMaster portfolio, the series includes the WaterMaster magmeter, which is available in sizes 1.5 to 84 inches. For sizes up to 8 inches, the new unit incorporates an innovative octagonal sensor design, which improves flow profile and reduces upstream and downstream piping requirements.

All WaterMaster sensors have a rugged construction, are inherently submersible (IP68, NEMA 6P), and may be buried. Advanced features built into the new flowmeters include a self-calibrating transmitter, which functions every 45 seconds without interruption to the flow measurement. Also included is the ABB Human Machine Interface, which simplifies operation, maintenance, and training. (
