Regulation software package – the dosing upgrade for your mp-Multiboard2

The mp-Multiboard2 comes with the option to unlock additional functions for more possible applications. The “Regulation” section is one of those and adds the possibility to have a mp6 micropump be regulated by a flow sensor. The Regulation package in combination with the right liquid flow sensor is a small but intelligent dosing systems. It allows flow rates to be set with the highest level of precision for different fluids – whatever the temperature or viscosity.

The Regulation software package is an optional add-on to the Multiboard2 software. With this software, you can set the desired flow rate for the system. Then, the software automatically chooses the right parameters to reach this flow rate quickly and accurately.

Within the Regulation software, you have the opportunity to dose either higher or lower flow rates:

  • The high flow rates range anywhere from 5 -8 ml/min. To properly dose within this range, you need the liquid flow sensor SLF3s-1300F by our partner Sensirion as well as the mp6 micropump and the mp-Multiboard2.
  • The lower flow rates range from 005 -1 ml/min. In this case, you require a the Sensirion SLF3s-0600F liquid flow sensor in addition to the micropump and evaluation board.

To make life easier for you, we have bundled up all the components you need to realize the automatic dosing.  Or, in case you already have the components, you can only buy the software upgrade. Head over to our online shop for details.

With the Regulation software package, Bartels Mikrotechnik has developed an intelligent dosing system that can be used to monitor and control the widest range of processes, especially in the areas of medical technology, diagnostics and pharmaceuticals. It’s also conceivable that innovative applications may come on stream for the procedures, products and methods in the fields of biotechnology, cell handling or cell cultivation.

Our goal with this software extension is to increase the functionality of the systems centred around the mp-Multiboard2. With new applications the sky’s the limit. Our experts at Bartels will be pleased to help you turn your innovative ideas into a marketable solution! Just contact us.

New features! Volume Dispensing & Indirect Dosing

Volume dispensing and indirect dosing are necessary for a number of applications. We wanted to make it as easy as possible to do this. That is why we have upgraded our Regulation Software.

Volume dispensing is now as easy as pressing two buttons. The software now allows you to set a specific liquid amount. Press “Set” and “Start” and the software automatically figures out all the parameters needed to dispense the liquid accurately. You can see the upgrade in action in our video about manual vs. automated dispensing.

Indirect dosing allows for the contamination-free dosing of liquids. The liquid does not come in contact with the pump or sensors. The software upgrade automatically reacts to changes in the flowrate due to changing pressures in the reservoir. That way, you only have to set the liquid amount you need and the software does the rest for you.

Questions about the Regulation software

How to add-on the Regulation software package

The Regulation software package is an add-on to the existing Multiboard2 app. It is an additional tab in the software interface that you can unlock. You can find the pricing options in our online shop.

You already have the mp-Multiboard2?

Then you simply need to update your software to the newest version (you can find it in on download area). After that, you click on the newly appeared “Regulation” tab and follow the instructions on the screen. Please note that your need to have the mp6 micropump and the flow sensor suitable for the desired flow rate. Otherwise, the software add-on cannot function properly.

You don’t have the mp-Multiboard2 yet?

No problem. We have specifically created a bundle with the software and all the components needed. Simply head over to our online shop.
