St. Charles, Mo. — October 14, 2016 —The IPA-3400 is the newest addition to the line of BC Biomedical test equipment. With its large 7” touch screen display, dual syringe stepper motor driven system and built-in autosequences, the IPA-3400 is the most compact and fully featured four channel analyzer on the market. The IPA-3400 has full touch screen control of all processes, leaving no need for buttons and knobs.
The IPA-3400 Infusion Pump Analyzer also features a new cutting edge, Patent-Pending design that uses a dual syringe stepper motor driven system. This provides continuous monitoring of the fluid flow whereas older technology needs to stop and perform intermittent drains. The IPA- 3400 provides a more realistic flow path for the infusion device being tested, as well as more accurate readings. The independent step-per motor control of the custom designed, ceramic valving allows the system to run quietly and smoothly, with a bidirectional powered fluid flow for use in the built in cleaning cycle.
The IPA-3400 has built-in autosequence capabilities that allows the user to perform automated test procedures. Users can run specific test routines specified by various manufacturers, saving time as well as reducing the risk of human error. Advanced features in our autosequences even allows the inclusion of pictures to aid with the setup and configuration of each step. All test results are stored internally in the large, 32 GB memory. Results can also be downloaded to a USB flash drive or directly to a PC.
There are specific requirements in IEC 60601-2-24 for flow readings, back pres-sure simulation, bolus (PCA) measurements and occlusion alarm monitoring. All of these features are specifically built into the IPA-3400 with simple to use on screen selections.
The IPA-3400 is designed to hold up to 4 IPA-3900-FM flow modules. These modules are individually serialized and calibrated so that they may be moved from channel to channel and even unit to unit. Once installed they are recognized by the IPA-3400 and their Serial Number and NIST Traceable Calibration information are presented on the display and utilized in all data reporting.
The interchangeable modules provide the user with unprecedented flexibility in their IPA Testing System. There is no need to be down when the unit is due for calibration. Only the modules need to be calibrated. This also allows the rotating of modules or the use of a spare module, thus providing flexibility not available in other systems. The same is true for service. If there is a problem on one chan-nel, only the module needs to be serviced, eliminating downtime.
The IPA-3400 display may be raised to gain full access to the four user swappable flow mod-ules. No wiring or plumbing is required for mod-ule installation. Simply lift the display, remove the cover plate, loosen the retainer screw and slide the module out. All plumbing and electronics are self-contained and all electrical connections are made via a slide-in mating connector on the end of the module. Then just reverse the process for installation.
The IPA-3400 allows for easy field expansion. You can buy a 1 channel unit and later purchase additional modules that can be added in the field. Just plug them in and the system will automatically recognize the additional module(s), reconfigure itself and you are ready to go.
