Q What can be done if the tubing is leaking? A It is possible to push a wire ferrule over the attached tubing end to clamp it tightly to the connector. The ferrule doesn’t have to be crimped. If crimping is required for a very strong fixation, please make sure that the ferrule does not create such […]
Q How does the mp6-QuadKEY board work? A The mp6-QuadKEY is an evaluation board that allows to control up to four mp6 micropumps simultaneously with various waveforms, frequencies ranging from 50 Hz up to 800 Hz and amplitudes from 10 Vpp to 250 Vpp. The mp6-QuadKEY has the mp6-QuadOEM and an Arduino nano compatible microcontroller onboard. Both […]
Q How does the mp6-QuadOEM controller work? A The mp6-QuadOEM is a quad-output high-voltage DC-AC converter that drives four mp6 pumps. The device features a 2.7 V to 5.5 V input range that allows the device to accept a variety of sources such as single-cell Li+ batteries. The outputs of the device generate up to 250 VPP […]
Q What is the operation temperature range of the micropump mp6? A The data sheet mentions 0-70°C, but this is based on water. Zero simply because of ice creation, because ice has an expanding character and may destroy the pump. This is actually the cause for the storage concern here too. At a temperature of 70°C water […]
Q In which temperature ranges can the micropump be stored? A As long as the pump is stored without any liquid, i.e. water, there is no known limit to negative temperatures (Celsius). Positive temperatures are limited to ~130°C, regardless of liquid inside, as at that temperature the piezo ceramic and the applied adhesives will start to deteriorate.
