Programmable 16-Channel Valve Controller PC-16
This is a
computerized controller with programmable timers to deliver liquid
application sequences with precise timing even during manual operation.
The controller can drive any solenoid with a
wireless remote control, digital (TTL) inputs, or software commands. To make a
functional system, simply add valves below. The set of eight (x8) valves are mounted in a small aluminum box which an x-blocks: solenoid valves for larger volume perfusion and
pinch valves for easy maintenance.
Syringe holders and tubing
might be required.
The 16-channel controller is included with every 8/16-channel
perfusion system. Built-in 0-15PSI
pressure controller-pump (PC-16P model only). Compatible with data
acquisition and imaging systems:
LabView, MatLab, pClamp, IPlab, PatchMaster, Metamorph, MetaFluor and others.
The controller can store up to 16-step sequence (32-steps if wash
between channels is used) to activate
multiple channels in programmed order or a continuous loop.
This is useful for automatic switching of liquid media in sequence, including
automatic "wash" between "test" solutions
applications in sequence. The sequence
is programmed using the touch screen of the controller.
Optically isolated inputs for each channel. BNC connector for TTL inputs and DB-9 connector.
The controller has an options for
valves control by channel encoding using only 2-4 digital inputs, in case if a
limited number of digital outputs is available in your system.
You can also use analog signal input to switch the channels by
changing the voltage (0.5V increment).
RS232 port allows automation of solution switching and integration with imaging systems.
5V TTL signal output to switch inflow/outflow pump automatically.
