Versatile Type PULSATING FLOW PUMP ALPHA FLOW EC-1/EC-2/EC-8 is a pump system that can generate both the steady flow and pulsating flow.
This system is designed for medical experiment.ECG pulse signal can be used forECG-gated imaging method.

EC SERIES can be operated by a tablet that is included in the kit.
The dedicated application allows an operator to turn on/off the steady flow or the pulsating flow, to increase or decrease the disgorging volume, to add or reduce BPM (beats per minute) and to change the pulsating pattern.

EC SERIES is fitted with an external pressure sensor as a standard to gauge the disgorging pressure.
The pressure figure is digitally displayed and the change in pressure is displayed on a graph in real time. When the pressure is not shown as zero in the stationary mode, adjust it to zero by a calibration button that is to be displayed in that situation.

Synchronizing pulse signals can be sent to ECG as an external output, which is a standard feature. It can be used for CT and MRI as well.

Input/output circuits are optionally available.
