mp6-QuadKEY Evaluation Board

The Bartels mp6-QuadKEY evaluation board allows an easy control of the mp6 series micropumps. This evaluation board can independently control up to four mp6 micropumps. Depending on your application, you can define a frequency-amplitude pair (frequencies ranging from 50 Hz up to 800 Hz and amplitudes from 10 Vpp to 250 Vpp) for each pump according to your needs via the Arduino source code or simply by using the QuadKEY application.

The Bartels mp6-QuadKEY evaluation board allows an easy control of the mp6 series micropumps. This evaluation board can independently control up to four mp6 micropumps. Depending on your application, you can define a frequency-amplitude pair (frequencies ranging from 50 Hz up to 800 Hz and amplitudes from 10 Vpp to 250 Vpp) for each pump according to your needs via the Arduino source code or simply by using the QuadKEY application.

With its minimalist design, the QuadKEY evaluation board will impress you with its ease of use. The QuadKEY is controlled by the QuadOEM mp6 via an Arduino Nano or pin-compatible microcontroller. All the pins of the microcontroller port are exposed for easy access (to connect external hardware for example) and thus easily adapt to your application.

  • Control independently up to 4 pumps in amplitude (10 Vpp to 250 Vpp), frequency (50 Hz up to 800 Hz) and signal form (sine, rectangular)
  • Connection to a computer via a mini-USB connector
  • Compatible with all mp6 micropumps
  • Arduino controller: easy tuning of the parameters

The mp6-QuadKEY kit contains the following:

  • mp6-QuadKEY board
  • Mini-USB cable
  • Link to download the Arduino demo Sketch and the USB-driver
  • Link to download the QuadKEY application

  • Further information

Note that each pump can be controlled by adjusting the voltage up to 250 Vpp. The frequency can only be set globally (50, 100, 200, 400 and 800 Hz). You can either use Arduino coding or you simply use the QuadKEY application. The QuadKEY has got a bottom limit of frequency at 50Hz and the lowest voltage is around 10 Vpp. That should be the lowest flow rate that can be created without any restrictors in the system.
