Why use a memetis electronic control unit?
The memetis valves are actuated by a shape memory alloy actuator. This actuator needs to be current controlled. For this reason, we offer easy-to-use electronic control units that provide a constant current of max. 500 mA.
These electronic control units are meant to be just for initial testing or lab setups. At a later stage in product development, or if using many memetis valves, it is better to integrate the valve control electronics into the device's electronics. We are happy to support you with the integration. Please contact us, if you need any advice.
