Q Is the micropump mp6 a dosing system? A The micropump mp6 is a system to convey a certain volume of fluids over time. The flow rate is adjustable by frequency and amplitude changes of the piezo actuator. Only if the outer conditions are very stable the micropump can be used for dosing either controlled directly or in combination with a timer
Q Is it possible to promote gas with particles with the mp6-AIR micropump? A We don’t have data on particle effects with the mp6-AIR micropump. The mp6-AIR is also possible to pump liquids. In general the mp6-AIR is just a standard mp6 pump, only tested especially for air performance, not every mp6 achieves the air specification due to part and production tolerances.
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 a deformation that a gap
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 can be fully configurated by
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 for maximum pump performance. The
