Evaluation Kit

Our evaluation kits come with everything necessary to start testing, including two pumps, electronics and PC application for configuration and control. The evaluation kits are suitable for laboratory testing, proof of concept and product prototyping.

The kit contains two PCBs: a postage-stamp sized Disc Pump Driver PCB, mounted on a larger Motherboard PCB that provides convenient control interfaces, indication LEDs and a pressure sensor. The smaller Driver PCB can be removed and directly integrated with test set-ups / prototypes as required.
