Users Qualification and Operation conditions

Always make sure that only appropriately trained and qualified persons are working with the controller and the connected fluidic components (pumps & valves) and always supervise their operation. The work on the electrical components and the controller systems must be done by persons with the required qualifications and expert knowledge.

Basically, BMT Fluid Control Solutions GmbH cannot be held responsible for any improper or undue liability negligent use. This is especially valid for the operation of pumps, valves and other components not certified by BMT Fluid Control Solutions GmbH.

Do not open the housing of the controller! In such cases, BMT Fluid Control Solutions GmbH can no longer guarantee.

Do not make any modifications or additions to the controllers without prior written consent of the manufacturer. Such modifications may affect the safety of the system or the connected fluidic components and are therefore prohibited. BMT Fluid Control Solutions GmbH rejects any responsibility for the damage of systems caused by unauthorized modifications of the controllers or the fluidic components. The risk and responsibility are thus automatically transferred to the operator.

Please keep this manual in a safe place and give each user access to a copy.

Piezo pump controller

Please note that parts of the electronics and the piezo pump are operated with high voltages. Therefore, people with pacemakers are advised to avoid the proximity to the overall system.
