To show how truly quick and easy it is to work on a variety of pump applications when powering them with the Crouzet DCmind Brushless Motors and Gearmotors take a look at the following two-minute demonstration video.
Dispensing Made Easy With Smart, Brushless Peristaltic Pump Motor
In the above video demonstration, Crouzet Motors’ Regional Sales Manager, Todd Ervin, shows how to quickly set up a peristaltic pump for dosing by using the new pump application template in the DCmind Brushless Motor software. Todd demonstrates how to set up three individual doses using the motor’s inputs and outputs, as well as how to set up one proportional dosing element using analog 0-10VDC.
Just knowing your pump’s flow rate, the DCmind-SOFT automatically calculates the motor speed based on the mechanical ratio used (whether 1:1 with a motor only, or a different ratio when used with a gearbox connected to the motor).
A nice feature of the software is the “virtual control box” where one’s I/O can be configured and tested before actual use. The free DCmind software with the pump template also has the capability to set up continuous flow control in your application.
The DCmind-SOFT that accompanies Crouzet’s DCmind Brushless Motors is available in English, French and German. Operating system capabilities include XP Family, XP Pro, Vista and Windows 7. For OEMs, special programs can be created on request. Firmware updating is made easier with the “Bootloader” function and loading programs is simplified with a USB connection.
