The German micro-pump manufacturer HNP Mikrosysteme is introducing the mzr-Touch Control as a new possibility to control micro annular gear pumps (mzr-pumps) via a graphical user interface. The multilingual graphical user interface supplements the present control of mzr-dosing pumps via laptop or PC. The mzr-Touch Control is compatible to most mzr-pump sizes and series with low to medium power drives. This compact device controls one pump each and is easy and intuitive to handle. Dosage volumes from 0.25 µl and flow rate ranges of 1 µl/min to 288 ml/min can be indicated by the user. This system will be presented at Analytica 2018 in Munich, Hall 1, booth 409.
Micro pumps by HNPM are established in the pharmaceutical and chemical production as well as for the integration into analysis devices. In laboratory settings where often a single pump is used and the operator prefers to focus on his work flow and less on the pump technology, a simpler device with an easy-to-use and state-of-the-art graphical interface of the dosing system is a better value proposition for fast results.
Other accessories facilitate adaptations to the specific application conditions and increase ease of use. A holder system for mzr-Touch Control and pump assemblies including mzr-pumps of the low pressure and magnetic hermetic series is available, as well as a pen for input support and a manual switch operated by foot or hand. Besides graphical data analysis, the mzr-Touch Control offers a restart procedure for easy troubleshooting. It meets the requirements of the IP 65 protection degree.
