BioFluidix Control electronics

The smart way of control

Control electronics

The PipeJet™ Nanodispensers and the TopSpot®-microarray printers are driven by a voltage pulse generated by specific control electronics.

The control units Ra and R5 are cased in an ISO41494 (19”) compatible system case for easy integration into measurement or automation setups. Alternatively, bare OEM PCB boards (100 x 100) are available on request.

LEDs on the front plate indicate the respective working status of the control electronics.

Control electronics Ra

For entry-level users the control electronics Ra enables a simple analogue definition of the droplet volume and is especially designed for controlling one PipeJet™ P4.5 Nanodispenser to generate droplets of 12 nl.

Control electronics R5

The high-end R5 electronics allows for setting the driving parameters of the PipeJet™ Nanodispensers by a serial RS-232 connector or USB interface.

BioFluidix easy-to-use control software is Microsoft Windows™ compatible and allows for setting the dispensing parameters. The PipeJet™ technology can easily be integrated into own programs or devices by the provided DLLs or by using the simple text protocol.

TTL and SPS-compatible trigger in-and outputs allow for a simple synchronization with other devices.
