for the mp6 micropump
The mp-Lowdriver, mp-Highdriver and mp-Highdriver4 are small, easy-to-use driver circuits. They are specially designed for the mp6 series micropumps. These microelectronic drivers offer you a lot of flexibility. At the same time, the accuracy of the driver is not lost.
Low flow rates: mp-Lowdriver
The mp-Lowdriver is ideal for low flow rate applications. Because this microelectronics has high amplitude resolution, the mp-Lowdriver is ideal for flow control systems. The mp-Lowdriver generates amplitudes up to 150 Vpp from a 3-5 V DC supply. The driver has a wide frequency range. However, it is important to note that the mp6 micropump only operates properly in the 0 – 800 Hz range.
High flow rates: mp-Highdriver
The mp-Highdriver is especially suitable for higher flow rates. The driver offers the possibility of variable pump control at a size similar to an integrated circuit for integration into the system electronics or on a circuit board. It generates amplitudes up to 250 Vpp from a 3-5 V DC supply. Very low power consumption makes this microelectronic driver ideal for battery-powered handheld devices or even solar-powered devices.
Viscous fluids: mp-Driver
The mp-Driver is suitable for higher flow rates and viscous fluids like oil. The driver offers the possibility of variable pump control at a size similar to an integrated circuit for integration into the system electronics or on a circuit board. It generates amplitudes up to 250 Vpp from a 3-5 V DC supply. Very low power consumption makes this microelectronic driver ideal for battery-powered handheld devices or even solar-powered devices.
Up to four micropumps: mp-Highdriver4
Like the mp-Highdriver, this microelectronic driver is especially suitable for higher flow rates. The difference here is that the mp-Highdriver4 can control up to four mp6 micropumps simultaneously.
Due to the compact design, integration into system electronics or on a circuit board is possible. The operating frequency, the amplitude and also the drive signal are adjustable. Sine signal, square wave signal and others are available. Each pump can be activated and deactivated individually. All drivers are configured and controlled by an I2C interface.
To get the most out of the drivers, plug them into the mp-Multiboard. This way you not only control up to four mp6 micropumps, but you can also add further components like sensors or valves. This allows you to quickly and easily build a fully functional microfluidic system.
To learn more about our microelectronic components, it’s best to take a look at the electronics data sheet. Here we explain in detail how to get the most out of the drivers and the rest of our microelectronics.
If you like to test all drivers, the mp-basic kit and the mp-advance kit are especially exciting for you. Here you get all three driver chips together with the mp-Multiboard, mp6 micropumps and other accessories. This allows you to test both high and low flow rates in your application. This way you will find the optimal driver for your system.
