Implementation of Spark HPD selector valve as sampler

Post by Stellaschindler »

I would like to make a software wish. I have a customer that has a Spark Holland ACE (dual clamp) and HPD (4 SSM). They use the HPD as a sampling pump and each SSM channel pumps 20 mL of sample onto the ACE cartridge. Right now, we have to write a Clarity method for each channel being used….which is 20 different methods.

Would DataApex be able to add a “Variable” solvent channel selection to HPD Actions Disp. Aspirate and Disp. Pump? There would also need to be a Setup Column in the Sequence so that the end user could designate the HPD channel to be used for each sample.

Dear Stella,

the suggestion is possible, but it will mean to write down a new control module to use the HPD SSM valves as an sampler, which will be rather laborious and costly. In case it is for one specific installation, I will suggest to consider using a VICI-Valco multiposition valve instead of the SSM valves, for it the control module is already available. ... ampler.pdf
