This is our first venture into the Arduino world and we were hoping to get some guidance regarding a project we are currently working on. This project involves a OEM peristaltic pump that we would like to program to dispense solution at set flow rates over time. The specs for the pump follow:
We are wondering if this pump could be controlled with an Arduino board - as it functions through variations in voltage to control motor RPMs which in turn determine flow rate. The external control mode we selected was the RS-485, as we originally planned to interface an array of pumps with our Campbell Scientific Data Loggers. This may eventually be the case, but first we wanted to use the Arduino to establish flow rates and basic operation.
If anyone has any insight into where we need to start it would be greatly appreciated!
