Q Can the micropump mp6 promote in reversible direction? A No, due to the passive check valves the micropump mp6 series can only pump in one direction. They are not designed to have a reversible flow. If a negative pressure difference is applied, only a very small backflow is possible, if that pressure becomes too […]
Q Can the micropumps work at below 1Hz? A The pump can work even well below 1Hz (if necessary) but not every Bartels driver does support it. The mp-x controller has a frequency range of 1-300 Hz. The mp6-QuadEVA, mp6-QuadOEM and the mp6-QuadKEY have a lower frequency limit of 50 Hz. This cannot be disabled […]
Q What is the SRS signal? A The SRS signal is an optimized waveform generated by the mp-x controller to drive the actuator more efficiently. It makes the pump work at a lower sound level with increased long term stability of the flow rate. The SRS signal is used as the standard driving waveform.
Q How about pumping media with particles? A The micropumps are capable of moving liquids with particles up to 50 µm. The smaller the particles the less risk of blockage. Depending on the particle material the particle load has influence. The higher the load the higher the risk of blockage. Blood particles are squishy and […]
Q How many signal forms can be chosen? A The mp-x controller generates three different signal forms: SRS, Sine, Rectangular. The mp6-OEM controller and the mp6-EVA board generates only one signal form, it is similar to rectangular. The mp6-QuadEVA board generates only one signal form as well – the sine signal. The mp6-QuadOEM controller and […]
