Pneumatic Valve Controller[ELUPSW2000]
The LineUp™ P-SWITCH is a pneumatic valve controller. By providing two pressure sources (any vacuum or pressure from -800 to +2000 mbar), each module can deliver one of the two provided pressures through 8 independent outlets. The module can be used to multiply the channel output number in the LineUp™ system or any other pressure system.Similar to every other LineUp series module, the P-SWITCH microlfuidic valve can be controlled manually, locally and remotely, using FLUIGENT dedicated software solutions or custom applications. This can be done through LabView, Python, Matlab, C++ or any other development environment of your choice.

Features of P-SWITCH pneumatic valve controller
Expand as needed
The LineUp™ series module can be combined to add pressure/vacuum channels, valve control and turn one channel into 8 independent outlets using the P-SWITCH. Expand your system up to 32 outlets with 4 modules.
Pressure & vacuum compatibility
Each P-SWITCH module requires 2 supplied sources over the range of -800 mbar to 2 bar. Combined with Flow EZ™ and Push-Pull, set a versatile system for pressure-base microfluidic experiments.
Control and regulate pressure and flow rate without a PC using the LineUp™ hardware interface. Use the P-SWITCH buttons to quickly commute outlets between the two supplied pressure(s)/vacuum(s) and focus on the experiment.
Connect the outlets of the P-SWITCH microfluidic valve to independent reservoirs to perform independent injections. Pressurize up to 32 reservoirs simultaneously or independently.
Actuate pneumatic valve
Connect the outlets of the P-SWITCH directly to quake or on-chip pneumatic valves to actuate them. Control and handle the fluid on the chip without additional tubing.
Benefits of P-SWITCH pneumatic valve controller
- Quick changing of liquids
- Less dead/internal volumes (compared to fluidic valves)
- No liquid contact with the instrument
- Less cross-contamination (compared to fluidic valves)
- Possibility to inject one or several solutions at the same time
- Expandable for multiple pneumatic controls
How to easily control pneumatic valves
P-SWITCH is a microfluidic valve that will simplify your experiments. It allows for the pressurizing of multiple reservoirs at once or actuating various types of pneumatic valves in a microfluidic set-up.
The versatility of the P-SWITCH comes from the fact that it can be used in combination with other LineUp modules-such as the Push-Pull or Flow EZ- to provide regulated pressure as a complete and compact system, or independently as a standalone tool.
Focus on the microscope. No PC is required
Instead of looking at the PC, users can keep their eyes on the microscope, adjusting the control dial with one hand. In this stand-alone configuration, the device allows for pressure or flow rate control and volume dispense making it ideal for benchtop use.
