FRP-SFP

Used with a Flow-Rate Platform (at least one FLOWBOARD and one FLOW UNIT), the FRP-SFP provides a quick and user-friendly view of up to sixteen (16) FLOW UNITS with both flow-rate and volume measurements.

 

 

 


FRCM

  • It can predict and automatically adjust pressure
  • Short settling time (down to 0.2s)
  • Excellent flow stability (<0.2% CV) even for long time experiments
  • Multi flow-rate channel regulation

 

 

 


ESS™ Control

  • Possibility to record and log the positions of all devices during the experiment, with different possible sampling rates
  • Possibility to save a set of positions as a configuration that can be reused whenever needed
  • Modular display of your devices: the main window can be contracted, and every 2-SWITCH™, M-SWITCH™ or L-SWITCH™ control can be undocked and displayed in an individual and repositionable compact window.

 


Script Module

  • Pressure and volume control FRCM, flow-rate, valve position (ESS™)
  • Full automation of the most complex experiments
  • Long time experiment (up to several days)
  • Creation and run of complex flow profiles (sine, triangle, ramp, etc)
  • “On time” control of the script and indication of time sequence (duration of each command)
  • Automatic detection of protocol errors thanks to the debugger within the Script
  • Repeatability
