Features of the bistable microvalve
The bistable microvalve with PEEK fluidic part has many features, including:
only requires power to switch between the open and closed state (bistable)
low internal volume
ultra-low power consumption - even battery operation is possible
no heat development due to bistable functionality
Low power consumption
As the bistable valve only requires power to switch between the open and closed state, it can save a lot of power and does not produce heat while open/ close.
The valve is media separated and the fluid only gets in contact with biocompatible materials like PEEK or silicone.
Low internal volume
Reagents can be saved due to an
internal volume of less than 4µl.
Why is our bistable valve especially energy-efficient?
The bistable valve BV1101 is included in "The Energy Efficient"-Bundle. It is in particular power saving, because it only requires power to switch between the open and close state. Both positions can be held without requiring current. The switching takes 75mJ of power.Thereby even battery-operation becomes possible.

(open and close).
A fluidic adapter for integrating the valve
To integrate the valve in a system, two screw holes and a fluidic in- and outlet are required.
If you don't want to design the flange-mount connection and want to start testing the valve immediately, we recommend using one of our fluidic adapters.
You can either connect LUER fittings or tubes directly.
A valve controller
The valves need to be current-controlled. That is why we recommend using our electronic control units for testing.
Here we offer two types of electronic control units:
If you decide to work with memetis valves in your application, we are happy to support you with implementing the valve control in your own electronics. Especially for the bistable valves, a few things need to be considered - reach out to us and we will advise.
