To increase applications, the mp-Multiboard2 features the option to release additional functions. The “Regulation” section is one of those and enables the mp6 micropump to be controlled by a flow sensor.
The Regulation package, in combination with the correct liquid flow sensor, is a small but smart dosing system. It delivers highly accurate flow rates for various fluids irrespective of the viscosity or temperature.
The Regulation software package is an optional add-on to the Multiboard2 software. With the availability of this software, users can fix the preferred flow rate for the system. The software automatically selects the correct parameters to attain this flow rate in a rapid and precise manner.

Users have the chance to dose either lower or higher flow rates within the regulation software
- The high flow rate range tends to fall between 5 and 8 mL/minute. To dose within this range correctly, users need the liquid flow sensor SLF3s-1300F by the partner Sensirion, and it also includes the mp-Multiboard2 and the mp6 micropump.
- The lower flow rates vary from 005 to 1 mL/minute. In such a case, users need a Sensirion SLF3s-0600F liquid flow sensor beside the micropump and evaluation board.
To make life simpler for users, all the components needed by them to realize the automatic dosing has been bundled up. Instead, if users have the components already, they can buy the software upgrade.
With the availability of the Regulation software package, Bartels Mikrotechnik has created a smart dosing system. This could be utilized to track and control the extensive range of processes, particularly in diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, and medical technology.
Ground-breaking applications are likely to come on stream for the products, procedures, and methods in cell handling, biotechnology, or cell cultivation.
The goal of this software extension is to raise the functionality of the systems centered next to the mp-Multiboard2. With new applications, the sky is the limit. The experts at Bartels will be pleased to help users turn their ground-breaking ideas into marketable solutions.
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 can be unlocked. The pricing options can be found in the online shop.
If users already have the mp-Multiboard2
Users may only need to update their software to the newest version (users can find it in a download area). Following that, users click on the newly appeared “Regulation” tab and follow the instructions on the screen.
Users must have the mp6 micropump and the flow sensor ideal for the preferred flow rate. If not, the software add-on cannot work correctly.
If users do not have the mp-Multiboard2
A specifically made bundle with the software and all the components required is available. Users can head over to the online shop.
