MILWAUKEE, Wis., May 2, 2022 (Badger Meter release) — Badger Meter has announced that its ModMAG M2000 Electromagnetic flow meter is now available with BACnet MS/TP communication protocol. The M2000 meter has also completed rigorous testing for the BACnet Testing Laboratories (BTL) Certification Program, assuring seamless integration with building management systems (BMS). The M2000 meter is the first full-bore inline electromagnetic meter to achieve BTL certification.
"The BACnet MS/TP protocol is a critical component of automated building management systems, and we're proud that the M2000 meter has completed the comprehensive evaluation process necessary to qualify for BTL Certification," said Dale Matthews, director of sales, Badger Meter.
The M2000 meter is a trusted technology to measure the flow of water and conductive liquids with zero straight run required. Its zero straight run performance has been validated to OIML/MID standards, providing accuracies of ±1% with zero straight run upstream or downstream or ±0.2% with required straight run. This meter supports both accuracy ratings out of the box, without the need for firmware adjustments.
With the BACnet MS/TP communication protocol, the M2000 meter seamlessly integrates into existing operations to provide enhanced data points, including bi-directional flow rate, totalizers in both directions, empty pipe statuses, leak alarms, no flow statuses and more. Existing M2000 meters can be retrofit with the BACnet MS/TP protocol using an upgrade kit — installation takes a single user less than 30 minutes without the need for additional wiring or products.
For customers, the integrated communication module means the M2000 meter has a direct connection to the gateway or PLC, without the need for a converter or extra components. Fewer components result in better reliability and decreased maintenance and commissioning costs.
Whether you are looking to reduce costs, comply with regulations or upgrade to the latest technology without significant modifications to your system, the ModMAG M2000 Electromagnetic flow meter provides dependable, rugged and cost-effective flow measurement for a wide range of applications, including hot/chilled water systems, data centers and other mission-critical HVAC installations.
"When there is a need for the highest possible measurement accuracy and versatility, the M2000 meter is an ideal choice," said Michael Steiner, product manager, Badger Meter. "It eliminates complexity by working out of the box with industry-leading features, including the option for BACnet MS/TP communication protocol, at a very competitive price."
For greater visibility and enhanced day-to-day efficiencies, the ModMAG product line—including the M2000 meter—can be paired with the AquaCUE Flow Measurement Manager, a cloud-based software suite that offers a cellular data solution for measuring and monitoring sustainable water usage.
