The MAG 8000 is available in a basic version for general water applications or an advanced version with more complex functionality. An optional built-in 3G/UMTS Wireless Communication Module allows for remote reading of measurement data.

The MAG 8000 can be combined with the SITRANS FUE950 < Link Needed ---energy calculator.


  • Simple meter placement – floating chamber IP 68 (NEMA 6P) design ensures continuous filterless performance regardless of position or in-line piping stresses, even when buried underground

  • Low pressure loss – unrestricted flow tube results in minimal pressure loss even at high flow rates and reduces overall network system pressure.

  • Zero maintenance – no moving parts and up to 15-year battery life with external 4-D cell battery pack

  • Bi-directional measurement - only one meter required for measurement in both directions

  • Flexible installation requires 0D inlet to and outlet from the sensor

  • Intelligent meter – capable of leak detection, data logging and error self-detection

  • Remote capabilities – stay up-to-date on measurement data without having to visit the site through optional 3G/UMTS Wireless Communication Module
