Precisely because the actual needs of customers are fully considered in terms of performance and technology, costs and loss of customers are reduced, some of the challenges in water enterprise pipe network management are solved, and more values are brought to the customers. It is because of these differientators from its competitor that the AquaMaster 3 was named the 2012 Product of the Year.
The annual appraisal and election of the Product of the Year was the readers' appraisal and election activity established by CONTROL ENGINEERING China (the Chinese version of CONTROL) magazine aiming for the Chinese automation, industrial control and instrumentation markets. Its biggest feature is the adherence to the appraisal and election rules of the ENGINEERS'CHOICE AWARDS (Engineers' Choice Award) of the U.S. CE magazine, which is generated by real-name votes from end-users or system integrators who have the best judging rights. The appraisal and selection has a wide range of mass participation, and is known as the "Hundred Flowers Awards" in the engineering field. The appraisal and selection process is standardized, fair, and transparent. The participating products have covered all the annual latest production from well-known suppliers at home and abroad in the automation field. Votes from users can choose technical representative, iconic, and landmark products, providing authoritative and comprehensive reference standards for technology upgrades and product purchases of wide automation users.
As for the ABB measurement products, the AquaMaster 3 electromagnetic flowmeter has won the award again after the ProcessMaster electromagnetic flowmeter received the award in 2010 and the 266 pressure transmitter won the award in 2011. It has proven once again the recognition and appreciation from the market and the users for ABB measurement products.
