The EZO-PMP Pump consists of three main components: a cassette, a 12V motor and a control system. The actual peristaltic pumping is done within the cassette. The inner workings of the cassette are fragile and must be dismantled by hand. It has been designed to be easily detached from the motor and disassembled. The 12V motor and its control system are soldered together. Both components are designed to operate as one single unit. The control system has three main components: a keyed data and its power connector, a 12 – 24V power input and a Status indicator LED.
Before calibration is attempted, all the air bubbles should be removed from the tubing. This is done by running the pump while tapping the tubing. If air bubbles are not removed from the tubing, they will slowly group together into larger air bubbles. Over time this will lead to accuracy issues.
Modes of operation
The EZO-PMP comes with a peristaltic pump with controller and data cable.
