Microlab 600 standalone syringe pump can be controlled by RS-232 to
create custom programs to perform a variety of applications. RS-232
signals can be sent from Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and from
computers including Windows®, Mac and Linux. Hamilton’s
implementation of this protocol uses simple ASCII commands which can be
sent from any computer so there is no dependence on .NET framework. The
only requirement is a serial port and a program like HyperTerminal® or Visual Basic® for Applications which can send ASCII commands.
