Electronic Connection Of Micropump

Admin/ March 29, 2018/ Electronics/ 0 comments

Q How can the micropump mp6 be connected to the electronic plug of the mp6-mol connector? A The figures below illustrate how to connect the micropump to the plug. The pump cable has to be inserted with the contact surfaces orientated down into the plug. Both components are firmly connected by closing the white plug. When disconnecting the pump, the board connector

Protection From Electrostatic Discharge

Admin/ March 27, 2018/ Electronics/ 0 comments

Q How can the mp6-OEM be protected from electrostatic discharge? A The driver chip of the mp6-OEM is very sensitive to electrostatic discharge. This can occur if the mp6-OEM is connected to the supply voltage, but the ground is not earthed. Touching any ground point on the mp6-OEM causes a discharge and leads to a defect. The same effect occurs when using

Electronic Control Requirements For Pumps

Admin/ March 22, 2018/ Electronics/ 0 comments

Q What are the electronic control requirements for the micropump mp6-series? A The micropump mp6 series can be driven with alternating voltages at a maximum amplitude of 250 V and frequencies between 0 and 300 Hz. A rectangular signal results in best fluidic performance while a sine wave minimizes the audible noise. As the pump contains two actuators, two signals with 180°

Q How can the mp-x controller be operated? A Driving the micropump with the mp-x allows you to gather comprehensive results in short time. You will also be able to consider the sometimes complex interaction of micro- and macrofluidics with direct measurements of your system right from the beginning. Furthermore you will also be able to conclude about how to integrate the
