Watson-Marlow Pumps Group will introduce the DriveSure, a new panel-mount OEM brushless DC gear motor with fully integrated speed controller at MD&M West 2014 at Anaheim Convention Center, Calif., Feb. 11-13. The highly adaptable drive is designed for biopharmaceutical, medical device, and process analysis equipment.
With DriveSure, OEM engineers can bring products to market faster and with less engineering cost by eliminating the time, design uncertainty, and risks associated with the separate specification of pump motor, gearbox, and drive.
DriveSure features a 51:1 control ratio and a 408-8 rpm speed range. The highly adaptable drive is offered in 24 V and 48 V DC options, and directly accepts market-standard analogue control signals. DriveSure features a range of panel-mount brushless DC motor gearboxes and controllers as a package, ideal for OEMs wishing to panel-mount Watson-Marlow’s proven pump heads, including the 102R, 114, 313D, 501RL and 520R series, for a flow range from 0.1 to 6100 mL/min.
The compact, lightweight and well-balanced design provides a ‘plug-in and forget’ solution. The use of Watson-Marlow’s own gearbox provides the customer with excellent torque and silent running, making it ideal for the life science and biopharmaceutical sectors, including dental, endoscopy, and in-vitro diagnostics. The comprehensive control and flow rate capability also meets the requirements of bioreactors, bench-top cross-flow filtration and chromatography equipment.
DriveSure technology enables the most competitively priced panel mount OEM pump range that Watson-Marlow has offered to date, giving customers the peace of mind of a fully integrated pump solution from the marker leader. This assurance of pump performance is back up by a comprehensive two year warranty, and direct support in more than 50 countries.
