Software design for one diaphragm stand alone pump cell
Atropos-1 mono model for drive of one Air-Operated-Diaphragm-Positive-Displacement SUP.
Different screen dump’s of the GUI from the simplified Atropos-1 software version A.63 – June 2017. More to be found in the Atropos manual found under download.
Here is the major principles behind Atropos software
- Cardiac Output (CO) = total pumped volume, SUP capacity, ml/min (CO = BpM x SV) according to specific SUP size
- Beats-per-Minute (BpM) = determined by the diaphragm diameter, ranging 0-25 BpM
- Stroke Volume (SV) = programmable from 10-100% in 10% steps
