BADGER Amplifier ModMAG® M5000

Battery-powered Electromagnetic meter with MID


The ModMAG® M5000 is a battery-powered electromagnetic flow meter with a very high accuracy even at very low flows. The excellent repeatability as well as the above-average battery life makes this innovative water meter indispensable for the water market. Typical applications are leak detection in water networks, water consumption measurements and irrigation plants.

The meter is best suited for applications without a power supply where exact consumption or flow rates are required. Of course, the ModMAG® M5000 can also be used with an available power supply. The meter can be powered with main voltage and in case of a main failure, it is powered by an internal battery. Important data are consequently saved.

The ModMAG® M5000 is designed to comply with OIML R49-1 and MID MI-001.

Measuring principle

Electromagnetic flow meters

The operating principle of the electromagnetic flow meter is based on Faraday’s law of magnetic induction: The voltage induced across any conductor, as it moves at right angles through a magnetic field, is proportional to the velocity of that conductor. The voltage induced within the fluid is measured by two diametrically opposed internally mounted electrodes. The induced signal voltage is proportional to the product of the magnetic flux density, the distance between the electrodes and the average flow velocity of the fluid.
