FDA APPROVAL AND DESIGNED-IN SAFETY

FDA APPROVAL AND DESIGNED-IN SAFETY

PMD is a core component of FDA-approved equipment in more than half of the world's largest lab automation manufacturers.

We use digital checksum functionality to construct inherently safe interfaces that prevent lab and medical devices from careening out of control in response to invalid or random inputs – a danger that traditional analog amplifier-equipped systems cannot guard against.

"Relying on performance Motion Devices hardware and motion expertise …  We designed a lower-cost and more powerful motion controller for our holmium laser-based system used in vision correction."

Solve Your Motion Control Challenge With PMD

Optimize Syringe Dispensing

Controlling the amount of liquid deposited is critical in applications where there are “Keep-Out-Zones.” This new paper demonstrates dispensing solutions where the required motion accuracy can only be achieved with a closed loop step motor control architecture.

Improve Liquid Handling Robot

Understand how to implement a high-speed motion system on a Liquid Handling gantry that is aware of system clearances so that it can start an X/Y move, while a Z-axis move is still ongoing. Improve move times by 25% over conventional coordinated moves.
