Warner Instruments Introduces the VT-8 Valve Timer
Product News May 13, 2008
Warner Instruments has introduced the VT-8 Valve Timer, an eight channel microcontroller-based unit that communicates with Windows-based computers via the high speed USB 2.0 port.
Designed with Warner’s perfusion valve controllers in mind, the instrument also makes an excellent general purpose lab timer, the company said.
A software-driven computer interface is designed to generate an automated protocol for valve opening and closing during any experiment.
The timer continuously communicates with the computer facilitating instantaneous responses to user-directed commands of the output TTL.
The VT-8 features a ‘syringe configuration tool’ that ensures adequate solution volume to complete the experiment, and includes an emergency cut-off that can be used to automatically close all valves simultaneously.
