User Interface

This is a description of the basic menus on the LCD screen of the control unit. To navigate between them use the left “Menu” knob and to change a specific value use the right “Value” knob.
These are also buttons, pressing the left knob will push the piston forward or lift the syringe (if it’s not locked). The opposite happens by pressing the knob on the right.

Main

LCD0a

Top left: Count, useful for keeping track of dispensed pads. While displaying this screen turning the “Value” knob will increase or decrease current count by +-1.

Top right: Dispense mode.

Bottom left: Speed.

Bottom right: Retraction setting.

 

1 Dispensing speed

LCD1

Range from 1 to 30. For high viscosity fluids typical values are between 1 and 7, medium and low viscosity use 7 to 20.
Above 20 the fluid is extruded at a fast rate, so be aware it might be difficult to control.

 

2 Retraction

LCD2

This is the distance the piston will retract automatically after dispensing, essential to prevent oozing and dripping. Typical values are between 0.10 and 0.20mm

 

3 Modes

LCD3a

Manual: Press and hold to dispense.

 

LCD3b

 

 

LCD3d
Timer: Press start once and it will dispense for the set amount of time (timer resolution can be changed in 0.01 sec increments, read advanced settings for more info).

 

LCD3c

 

 

LCD3e
Dot: Similar to timer mode except volume is  controlled by piston distance, not time. Press start once and it will move the piston the set distance.

 

4 Counter

LCD4a

Enables or disables the counter on the main screen, switching on and off also resets the count.

 

5 Use settings profile

LCD5

Displays the current active profile. A “profile” is a set of parameters that is saved in the internal memory, since each fluid and tip combination (even pad size) will have different speed and retraction values this is an easy way to change between them. When you change profile its values are immediately loaded.

Any changes you make are automatically saved to the current active profile after one dispense cycle. For example changing speed from 4 to 5 will only be saved after dispensing with the new value.
