AquaMaster 3
Electromagnetic flowmeter
The smart solution for
remote applications
Introduction
AquaMaster 3TM is a range of high performance
electromagnetic flowmeters for the measurement of
electrically-conductive fluids and is normally supplied as
factory-configured, calibrated systems.
When the meter is taken out of storage and installed for
first use, remove the protective label (if fitted) from the
front to enable light to activate the unit.
If the meter is not powered, connect any batteries or
external supply as detailed in the User Guide
(OI/FET2XX–EN).
This Programming Guide should be used in conjunction
with the following publications:
–
MODBUS Tables Supplement
(COI/FET2XX/MOD/TBL–EN)

MID Protection
In addition to password control, further protection for the European Council Measuring Instruments
Directive (MID) is provided as follows:

If Calibration [>106] is one of 'Class1 MID' or 'Class2 MID', the parameters identified as
metrologically relevant for MID* have their access level raised to level 7 (Factory Only).

If the MID link is made on the pressure connector (refer to the User Guide [OI/FET2XX–EN] for
details), write access is not permitted at access levels 5, 6 or 7.
*see Section 3, page 8 (Menu Layout)

In both cases the AquaMaster 3 replies with the new value of the variable (or a reason for failure) –
for example:
>217
<0>217=42
>217=42
<3>217=Write Access Denied
Where:
217
is the number for the flow rate
<0>
is the error code for 'no error'
42
is the current flow rate
<3>
is the error code for 'Write Access Denied', since writing to the flow rate is not permitted.
Example: to change the flow FSD to 10 m3/min

Set units to number 6 (m3/min)
3. To cancel password security, either exit the Menu System (see 2.2.5, page 6) or type:
>248=0
to set the access level to Level 0.
2.2.7 Go To Menu
To navigate the AquaMaster 3 menus quickly, assuming that the menus have been activated (by pressing

5.1 Access via GSM
Commissioning test for signal strength
This provides a means of performing a radio signal test for selecting the optimum location for the antenna.
The system can be tested in its final commissioned location and state – for example, manhole cover closed
and any local communications equipment disconnected from the meter.
Menu 12 controls the GSM features.
Select Menu 12 and select the Signal Test Wait Time [>354]. Enter the time in seconds that the system
waits before starting the signal test. A countdown starts from the selected Wait time to zero and is shown
on the display. At this point close up the installation into its commissioned state. When the count reaches
zero, a radio signal strength measurement is taken and the result is shown on the display for 30 seconds
(long enough to open the door or meter cover to inspect the result).
The highest signal strength is represented by a value of 31; the poorest strength is a value below 5.
5.2 SIM Numbers
Data-enabled SIMs sometimes have both a Voice Telephone Number and a Data Telephone Number. In
these cases, use the Voice Number for Remote Access via SMS Text; use the Data Number for Remote
Dial-up operation – for example, using LogMaster.

5.3 GSM WakeUp Control
5.3.1 Battery-Powered Meters / Renewable Power Source Offline
To conserve power, the GSM radio module is normally powered down. To operate remote communications
(SMS Requests, Auto Report or Remote Dial Up), the GSM radio module can be woken either by going to
menu 12 and requesting a Manual Wakeup [>358=1] – which forces the module to wake up for the
WakeUp Duration [>352] – or by setting a programmable WakeUp schedule as shown in the following
diagram:
Schedule [>353]
ON
OFF
ON
Time
WakeUp Duration[>352}
Base Time [>351]
Base Day [>347]
The WakeUp Schedule [>353] can be programmed for wake ups every 15 / 30 / 60 minutes, 2 / 6 / 12 / 24
hours, Always On or Always Off. The Base Time [>351] sets the time of day for the wake ups. The Base day
[>347] sets the day of the week for the Auto Reports.
As the GSM operation consumes significant amounts of power, the battery life or internal backup times are
shortened significantly if the GSM engine is programmed ON more than once per day or the ON time is set
> 3 minutes.
5.3.2 Mains Powered Meters / Renewable Power Present
When the meter is mains-powered or renewable power is present, the GSM radio module is powered
continuously and is able to handle remote communications (SMS Requests, Auto Report or Remote Dial
Up). If power is interrupted and the meter is powered from its internal back-up, the GSM module does not
operate continuously.
Note. On mains-powered GSM units the module is rebooted automatically at midday every day. This
process takes approximately 1 minute and it is therefore recommended that the Base Time is set to
avoid the period around midday.

5.4 WakeUp Duration
The power supply to the transmitter may have been ordered as one of the following types:

Mains with backup

Battery-only

Renewable energy
For mains-powered transmitters with backup, the WakeUp Duration does not apply as the GSM module is
powered continuously while there is mains power present.
For battery, renewable energy and mains-powered units on backup operation, the WakeUp Duration (>352)
has a range of 3 to 30 minutes.

5.5.2 Signal Strength (current value)
The Signal Strength parameter [>348] may be used to obtain the radio signal strength on demand.
For example, >348<0>=16
5.5.3 Signal Log (Signal Strength History)
A signal strength reading is taken each time the module is powered up (or daily for a mains-powered
transmitter). The last 7 signal strength readings can be examined using Signal Log in Menu 12 [>365]. The
most recent reading is to the left.
In this example 16 is the most recent reading:
<0>365=16 14 14 13 12 14 14
5.5.4 Total Connect Time
Accumulated connection (call) time can be obtained using the Total Connect Time parameter in Menu 12
[>349]. It is shown in hh:mm:ss format and excludes SMS text activity.
5.5.5 Access via SMS Text Message
A transmitter with the GSM option also provides a means of accessing AquaMaster 3 data via SMS text
messaging. An SMS Request Text can be sent from a mobile phone to AquaMaster 3 and an SMS Reply
Text with the requested information is sent to the originating phone or SMS gateway. If the AquaMaster 3 is
battery- or external renewable energy-powered, the SMS Request is not serviced until the next
programmed WakeUp time as defined in Menu 13.

5.6 SIM Access Control
This section describes the steps to change the GSM module's SIM PIN and Access Lock status. Because
SIM Access Lock and SIM PIN are both held in the SIM they can also be changed by inserting the SIM into
a mobile phone and following the steps to change it, usually found in phone setting security menus.
However, where the AquaMaster 3 is potted the SIMs may not be able to be removed and security setup
can then only be achieved via the AquaMaster 3.
SIM and PIN access via the AquaMaster 3 first require that the user has logged in at level 4. Because these
features are related to the security of the SIM it is recommended that the customer changes the level 4
password from the default setting. This can be achieved via menu 4.
Note. The PIN can be changed only via the local computer connection. It cannot be changed via GSM.
5.6.1 Access Lock
When the SIM Access Lock is enabled, the PIN must be sent to the SIM each time the GSM module is
powered up. Once the PIN has been accepted the SIM can be accessed as normal.
If an incorrect PIN is sent to the SIM, a number of retries are permitted (SIM dependent, but usually a further
two attempts). If no correct PIN was received by the module in this time, the SIM is locked and can be
recovered only with its PUK (a one-time unlock key that is obtained from the SIM's service provider).
5.6.2 PIN
The PIN is the password required to access the SIM if the Access Lock is enabled. If AquaMaster 3 detects
that the GSM module requires a PIN for access, it sends the string that has been set up to use in SIM
Password [>355].
If AquaMaster 3 has not had the SIM Password set or if the password is incorrect, the GSM Module Status
[>368] reports Waiting PIN or a similar message when the GSM module is powered up.
[If the SIM Password is '–' no string is sent to the GSM module – it is not possible to have an empty variable
string in the AquaMaster 3 menu ]
When viewed, the SIM Password displays the actual PIN string for login levels 4 (and above – note that
login levels above 4 are not detailed in this guide.). For login levels 3 and below it is displayed as a number
of asterisks (*) – one asterisk for each digit of the PIN.
Setting AquaMaster 3 to use SIM's Existing PIN
Change the SIM password to the PIN of the SIM card.
AquaMaster 3 automatically uses this password to send to the GSM module each time it powers the
module up. If the password is incorrect the SIM eventually becomes locked out.
5.6.3 Using AquaMaster 3 to Change SIM's PIN
1. Change SIM Password using the format:
<oldpin>,<newpin>
2. The new PIN can be viewed in SIM Password.
3. The GSM module is re-booted (takes approximately 1 minute). Once it has rebooted, the GSM
Module Status should report that the module is 'Ready'.

Programming Guide COI/FET2XX–EN Rev. A
AquaMaster 3
Electromagnetic flowmeter
5 Wireless Communications – GSM versions only
5.6.4 Using AquaMaster 3 to Change a SIM's Access Lock Status
This requires that the PIN has already been configured.
Cycle though options via menu item SIM Access Lock [>367]. Using the command line, this parameter can
be set to value 0 for 'Lock Disabled' or 1 for 'Lock Enabled'.
If the AquaMaster 3 does not have a PIN to use, it is not possible to request the SIM Access Lock status
and this is reported as '?' or value 2.
5.6.5 Using AquaMaster 3 to Unlock SIM when a PUK is needed
If a SIM has been 'locked out' through repeated attempts to access with an incorrect PIN the GSM Module
Status reports Waiting PUK or a similar message. The required PUK can be obtained from the SIM's service
provider.
1. Change SIM Password using format:
<puk>,<newpin>
2. The new PIN can be viewed in SIM Password.
3. The GSM module is re-booted (takes approximately 1 minute). Once it has rebooted, the GSM
Module Status should report that the module is 'Ready'.
Note. The SIM password cannot be changed via a remote port.
5.7 Auto Reports
This feature sends information via SMS text messages from an AquaMaster 3 to a programmed number on
a regular schedule. The Base Time and Day used for the scheduling are the same as those used for the
WakeUp system.
Other control parameters are located in Menu 13 – see page 13.
5.7.1 Auto Report Phone No 1 (or 2 or 3)
AutoReport SMS text messages can be sent to any one of three SMS telephone numbers, designated as
Auto Report Phone No 1, Auto Report Phone No 2 and Auto Report Phone No 3. Enter telephone numbers
as they would normally be dialled, with no spaces, using either the full international format (for example,
+441453123456 or 00441453123456) or the area code and number (01453123456), as appropriate.
Each type of Auto Report has its own section of the menu for configuration and can be sent to either the
same number or to different numbers. These are selected by the Destination parameter in each section as
Phone No. 1, Phone No. 2 or Phone No. 3.
5.7.2 Text Auto-Reports
The AutoReport message is defined in AR Command String [>363]. This uses commands from the
AquaMaster 3's Parameter Access command set.
for example: >363=TON;TFA;
This sets up AutoReport to send the Net Total and the Tariff A Total.

2* 1 hour (on the hour)
3* 2 hours (on the "even" hour)
4
Daily (every day at WakeUp Base Time )
5
Weekly (every WakeUp Base Day at WakeUp Base Time )
6
Monthly (1st day of each month, at WakeUp Base Time)
*
These options are functional only for mains-powered units; while on battery power, these options
behave as 'Off'.
5.7.4 Flow and Pressure Log Auto-Reports
SMS messages containing Flow and / or Pressure data from Logger 1 for the previous 24 hours can be
sent automatically by the AquaMaster 3 to one of the three specified phone numbers.
If a schedule for Flow Log Reports is set and if Logger 1 is set to a 15 minutes logging interval, the last 24
hour’s flow data is contained in a single SMS message. If a shorter interval is specified and therefore there
are more data points in the log, the amount of data may require multiple messages to be sent.
Similarly, if a schedule for Pressure Log Reports is set, then separate message(s) containing Pressure Data
are sent to the same phone number.
Flow Report Units (>385) and Pressure Report Units (>386) specify the engineering units used in the
reports. Pressure Reports always give the pressure in gauge units.
5.7.5 Flow and Pressure Report Schedules
The Flow Report Schedule (>388) and Pressure Report Schedule (>389) can be set to either of the
following options:0
Off
1
Daily (every day at WakeUp Base Time)

5.7.6 Totalizer Auto-Reports
If enabled this report sends the instantaneous values (at the WakeUp Base Time) of all the totalizers in the
transmitter (Forward, Reverse, Net, Tariff A, Tariff B).
5.7.7 Totalizer Report Schedule
The Totalizer Report Schedule (>399) can be set to any one of the following options:
0
Off
1
Daily (every day at WakeUp Base Time )
2
Weekly (every WakeUp Base Day at WakeUp Base Time)
3
Monthly (1st day of each month, at WakeUp Base Time)
5.7.8 Alarm Auto-Reports
This controls the sending of a report if any one or more of these events occur:

A sensor error

A coil error

A mains failure alarm

A battery alarm

A high or low flow alarm
If the Alarm Reporting (>402) has been enabled then, on any of the above errors, an immediate alarm report
is generated and sent via GSM to the phone number referred to in Destination (>401). This is providing
there has been no Alarm Report sent out during the last 24 hours (no alarm flag present) and more than 24
hours has passed since start-up.
Regardless of the GSM Wake-up time, the GSM module is triggered and the report is sent. If the alarm flag
is still present at the time of a scheduled text auto-report, the alarm field is appended at the end of the
Auto-Report; regardless of whether it is already included in the ’Command String’.
If Alarm Reporting (>402) has been disabled, no report is generated.

6 Alarm Information
6 Alarm Information
Table 6.1 details AquaMaster 3 alarm conditions, showing each alarm's numeric value and whether it
affects the alarm output O/P3. Alarm Code [>290] provides a numeric sum of AquaMaster 3's active alarm
conditions. Table 6.1 may be used to determine which alarms are active by process of subtraction of the
next highest alarm values.
Example: Alarm Code shows value 81,920.
Next highest alarm value = 65,536 => Alarm 16, High Flow
Subtract: 81,920 – 65,536 = 16,384
Next highest alarm value = 16,384 => Alarm 14, Mains Fail
Subtract: 16,384 – 16,384 = 0 (all done).
Alarm output O/P3 may be set up via Output 3 [>72] – see menu 7.0 Outputs (page 11) and the User Guide
