Upgraded and New Programming Functions
Linear/Gradient Flow Rate Ramping
Linearly ramp up or down the flow rate. The pump will deliver a smooth linearly increasing, or decreasing, flow rate as defined by
the starting flow rate, ending flow rate, the total pumping time, and direction.
The Linear Flow Rate function is defined using two Linear Functions [Linr], in two consecutive Program Phases, defined with three
1) Starting flow rate
2) Ending flow rate
3) Total time, expressed as "Hours : Minutes : Seconds : Tenth Seconds"
The units and pumping directions of the starting and ending flow rates must be the same.
The Linear Flow rate function is entered as follows, in two consecutive Pumping Program Phases:
Time is entered using the "Volume" key. The "min" minutes LED will be lit when time is displayed.
Starting Flow Rate
Total Time: [Hours : Minutes]
Ending Flow Rate
Total Time: [Seconds : Tenth Seconds]
RS-232 Remote Support
Linear function command:
The time parameter is sent to the pump or queried using the "TIM" remote function:
TIM [<nn> : <nn>]
Reciprocating Pumping for Auto-Refill Applications
The Reciprocating Pumping function will continuously reverse the pumping pumping direction at the end of the progammed dispense
volume. This function is setup the same as the Rate function. Set the rate, dispense volume and pumping direction.
After the set Target Volume is dispensed (or withdrawn), the pumping direction is reversed and the pump will withdraw (or infuse) the
set Target Volume. If the pumping rate is changed, the pump will continue pumping at the new rate when the pumping direction is
With the addition of a dual check valve on the syringe, this function can be used to create an auto-refill system.
With the addition of a second pump, attached to the first pump with the control cable, CBL-DUAL-3, the dual pump plumbing kit, P-
DKIT, and the setting of the Reciprocating communications mode, a continuous infusion system can be setup. One pump will always
be infusing while the other pump is refilling.
