The Basic.vi shown here allows for easy pump operation. You can set the port and baud rate in the ‘Communication Settings’ area. Then you can click start to start the motor, stop to stop the motor, pause to pause the motor, and reset to restart the motor.
The options include single pump, pump channel 1, pump channel 2, and cycle mode. Select single pump if the syringe pump you are using is not a dual syringe pump. Choose pump channel 1 or 2 to communicate with that respective syringe. Cycle mode will cycle between the two pumps.
While the motor is running the status indicators will show current information. Connection shows if you are connected to the pump. Dispensed volume shows the amount of volume the syringe infused. Elapsed time shows the time the syringe has been running, and limits shows the rate and volume limits of the syringe pump.
