Water meter ETKD R160

The ETKD R160 represents the best starting values and the highest accuracy and measuring stability with an optimal price / performance ratio.

This is ensured by its optimized design:

  • Hydraulically optimized body
  • Improved bearing of the impeller
  • Low-friction magnetic coupling

With a ratio of Q3/Q1=160 (comparable to metrological class C) for horizontal installation, the ETKD R160 meets the highest standards of reliability and accuracy. In addition, the meter is robust and has a large measuring range. In the version „copper can“, the register is enclosed in a robust copper jacket and, as a result, is optimally protected against condensation, dust and environmental influences.

In this way, the new single-jet ensures reliable reading of meter data for individual consumption billing. Due to a wide range of technical options, the ETKD is best possibly equipped for the future.

The register with modulator disc is the base for data transfer via radio, M-Bus or pulse.
