– Small footprint, just 9x7cm.

– Compatible with external switches.

– Optically isolated input for connecting with external devices like 3D printers and CNCs. Wide trigger input range : 3-12Vdc

– Load your own custom firmware, you can reprogram the microcontroller if you have a very specific application.

– Store settings in memory for up to 15 different fluids.

– Includes two syringes and 12 tips suitable for most fluids (other styles and sizes available on request).
