CIMS LC (Low Cost)

 (includes technical specifications)

Introduction

The Megnajet CIMS LC is a development of Megnajet’s highly successful integrator series controller (MISC) for use with all gravity feed end shooter print heads currently on the market today. A smaller and lower cost alternative to the HV range, it is ideal for use in cost sensitive or less demanding applications, including fluid testing rigs and single head printers. The cost effective LC offers OEMs and integrators the ability to add reliable industrialised fluid control functionality into their designs, without losing the precision and advanced level of control expected by Megnajet’s customers, making this an ideal choice for production and rapid development projects.

Features

 

  • Built in brushless air pump- no need for external air sources or vacuum pumps.
  • Integrated head shut off valves for head maintenance and instant isolation in power loss situations.
  • Integrated head lock off valves give customers the ability to hard purge heads up to 950 mbar as standard, making head maintenance simple and controllable.
  • Integrated hydraulic meniscus measurement system automatically compensates the meniscus pressure within the head as fluid levels inside the integrated fluid reservoir change during usage.
  • Options available to ensure fluid compatibility for all jetable fluid types including high viscosity fluids.
  • Integrated failsafe chamber with automatic shutdown and alarm to protect hardware from damage.
  • Integrated closed loop heater support for external inline heater up to 65°c ±1°C on standard systems.
  • Requires single low voltage 24vdc 1 amp input.
  • Galvanically isolated communications interface and fully opto isolated PLC compatible I/O interfacing.
  • Setup is possible from any RS422 enabled device capable of generating ascii strings such as PC, PLC, HMI or other embedded system via the integrated galvanic isolated RS422 communications adapter.
  • All parameters are stored on the device allowing for hostless operation,
  • Devices may be operated singularly or in a network mode up to 15 devices from standard interface.
  • Simple open source ASCII interface (for PLC and motion controller interfacing) and .Net client/server DLLs (with example code) available to allow OEMs simple and seamless integration into their end user applications.

 

Additional standard options

Degas vacuum source, head flush modules, external inline heater.

Developer interface cable kits (including comms adapter and external medical grade power supply).

Customisation

Units can be customised to suit fluid type and application, including (but not limited to) the use of alternate body materials (eg FDA approved food grade acetal, aluminium, 316 stainless and PEEK); choice of gasket material (eg FKM, EPDM, Nitrile and FFKM);  , and customisations to user software.
