Title (EN) MULTIPLE FLUID DISPENSER FOLLOWING STORED FORMULA
(FR) DISTRIBUTEUR DE FLUIDES MULTIPLES
Abstract:
(EN) An improved multi fluid dispenser for simultaneous dispensing of a plurality of fluids is shown and described. The dispenser (40) includes a controller (66) that is linked to a coordinator board (65). The controller has a memory with a plurality of recipes stored in the memory. A coordinator board is linked to a first module (45). The first module may include one or two pumps (74), each connected to a fluid reservoir (69). The module is then linked in series to a plurality of other modules as well as a manifold module (46). Each module includes a module board (67) for controlling the pump or pumps of that module. The controller, coordinator board and module boards are all programmed for the simultaneous or sequential pumping of multiple fluids from the reservoirs through outlet nozzles of the manifold in accordance with a recipe selected by the user and retrieved from the memory of the controller.
(FR) La présente invention a trait à un distributeur de fluides multiples amélioré pour la distribution simultanée d'une pluralité de fluides. Le distributeur comporte un contrôleur qui est relié à une carte de coordination. Le contrôleur comporte une mémoire avec une pluralité de formules stockées dans la mémoire. Une carte de coordination est reliée à un premier module. Le premier module peut comporter une ou deux pompes, chacune reliée à un réservoir de fluide. Le module est ensuite relié en série à une pluralité d'autres modules ainsi qu'à un module de collecteur. Chaque module comporte une carte de module pour le contrôle de la pompe ou des pompes de ce module. Le contrôleur, la carte de coordination et les cartes de module sont tous programmés pour le pompage simultané ou séquentiel de la pluralité de fluides à partir des réservoirs à travers des buses d'orifice d'évacuation du collecteur selon une formule sélectionnée par l'utilisateur et extraite de la mémoire du contrôleur.
