How To Use Chemconnect Dispenser
The ChemConnect dispenser offers a convenient, one-stop solution for handling your chemicals. With just the press of a button and the right setup, it can automatically dispense precise amounts of your chemical – up to 100 injections per hour. This setup might feel like a complicated process with lots of moving pieces, but the actual usage is quite simple once you know how everything works. In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about getting started with your ChemConnect dispenser, from installing software and drivers to setting up your work cell and creating recipe files.
What is a ChemConnect Dispenser?
A ChemConnect dispenser is a piece of equipment that can dispense precise amounts of your chemical via a syringe. It’s a centralized piece of equipment that can be used in a variety of laboratories. This equipment has a fully programmable interface that can be tied into a laboratory information management system (LIMS) to track the amount of a chemical being used in the lab. Another unique feature of the ChemConnect dispenser is that it’s fully automated. It can be programmed to dispense set amounts of chemicals at set times or when certain events are triggered, like the completion of a previous experiment. This automation can help save time and reduce errors in the lab.
Installing the Software and Drivers
Once you’ve received your ChemConnect Dispenser, you’ll need to install the software and drivers that come with it. These will allow your computer to communicate with your equipment. Follow the instructions that came with your dispenser to install the software. You may need to connect the dispenser’s USB cable to your computer to get the drivers installed. Once the drivers are installed, you can start the ChemConnect application. This is where you’ll create your recipe file, set up your work cell, and program your dispenser.
Creating the Recipe File
Once everything is connected and powered on, you can start creating your recipe file. To do this, navigate to the recipe tab. You can either create a new file or select an existing recipe file. Click on the plus icon in the top right-hand corner to add a new recipe. Choose the dispensed product type and the recipe type. A dispensed product is a product in the recipe that is dispensed to a syringe. A recipe type is the type of recipe being used, like normal or maintenance. You can also add a description to the recipe. Once you’ve added the recipe, you can add the ingredients. Select the product you want to include in the recipe and click Next.
Hooking Everything Up
Once your recipe is created, you can start hooking everything up. This means connecting your syringes, tubing, and other equipment to the dispenser. You can do this in the work cell panel. This panel allows you to manage the layout of the equipment in your work cell and the connections between them. Start by adding syringes. Click on the syringes icon and then click syringe. Click on the syringe you want to add and click Add. You can add multiple syringes to your dispenser. Next, add connections. Click on connections and click Tubing or Syringe. Click on the item you want to add and click Add. Then, select the items you want to connect and click Connect. You can add multiple connections between the syringes and the tubing. Once all of your equipment is connected, you can start programming your dispenser. Click on the dispenser icon and select Manual dispense. You can manually dispense material, or you can program your dispenser to dispense material at a specific time. Click on the on/off switch for Programmed dispense to turn it on. Now, you can select the product you want to dispense, the amount, and the time. You can also choose whether the dispensed amount is set or variable. Variable means that the dispensed amount can increase or decrease based on the amount of material in the syringe. Once you’re done, you can save your work and use the equipment in your lab.
Calibration and Adjusting the Dispenser
Before using your dispenser, you’ll need to calibrate it and adjust it to your syringes. This process is necessary to make sure that your equipment is working properly and is set up correctly. This will ensure that the syringes are being filled with the right amount of chemical. Calibrate your dispenser by clicking on the calibrate icon. Select the dispensed product and click Start. Fill the syringe with chemical and click Stop when you’ve reached the correct amount. Adjusting your dispenser is similar to calibrating it. Select the product you want to adjust and click Start. Fill the syringe with chemical and click Stop when you’ve reached the correct amount. Once both the calibration and adjustment are complete, you can start using your dispenser.
Congratulations, you’ve successfully set up and programmed your ChemConnect dispenser! Now, you can deliver precise amounts of chemicals with just a few clicks of a button. This equipment can also be used to dispense water, so you can water your plants with the touch of a button. This equipment can also be used in a variety of industries, including healthcare and food and beverage.
