Netafim USA introduces the M Series, the industry’s smallest sub-meters for residential and commercial dripline irrigation systems. The new mini-meters communicate directly with irrigation controllers and measure water usage for more efficient resource management.
The M Series can be installed with all Netafim landscape dripline and is also adaptable to other low volume systems.
The meters are available in ¾” and 1” diameters and feature durable plastic or corrosion-proof metal bodies. The sub-meters monitor flow rates from 0.2 to 20 gpm at pressures up to 140 psi. Flow rates are reported in U.S. gallons, based on multiplication factors indicated on the meter dial faces.
Netafim meters feature just one moving part, an impeller that contacts with the water flow, to ensure minimal wear and tear and longer life.
To prevent fogging, the meter’s magnetic-driven registers are hermetically sealed and encapsulated within the metal or plastic bodies.
Reed switch registers or photo diode registers are available. The reed switch register is a dry contact or simple switch closure for communicating with control and monitoring equipment. The photo diode register includes a photo coupler sensor that provides pulse output for communicating with control and monitoring equipment.
