10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW TO USE THE PHD ULTRA™
Since many of our users are already familiar with the operation of a syringe pump, we’ve created this onepage summary of important tips for using the PHD Ultra.
Operations Display: this section of the screen is used to display
pump operations, method information, general parameter settings
and the real-time display of data while the pump is running.
Mes s age Area: this section is used to display
the pump name, the time/date display and the
message box which contains operational
messages while the pump is running.
R un Pre vi ew: Access the Method Preview
screen that shows a summary of steps and
operating parameters.
Run/Re su me: Used to Run or Resume a
Method.
Fas t For ward: Advances the Pusher
Block in the forward (infuse) direction.
Fas t Rev er se: Advances the Pusher
Block in the reverse (withdraw) direction.
Back: Used to go back one screen.
Navigation Buttons:
this area of the touchscreen contains the
buttons used to navigate through the software
menus and to start/stop pump operations.
Tou chs creen U nl ock ed: Indicates that
the Touchpad is currently unlocked.
Pressing the button locks the Touchpad
S etting s: Access the settings menu used
to adjust Date, Time, Audible Alarm,
Pusher Block Force, Backlighting, etc.
1.
Navigation Buttons. Review the Touchscreen Button Reference on Page 18 of this manual to familiarize
yourself with the onscreen navigation commands. Once you know the buttons, you’ll be able to
navigate freely in the system.
2.
Select and Choose! Menus on the PHD ULTRA™ that require selection from a list use a “persistent
double touch” to select an item.That means that you will touch the desired item once to highlight it,
then a second time to confirm your choice. Most other commands only require that you touch one
time to choose that function.
3.
Home. The “Home” screen in the PHD ULTRA™ software is the Method Main or Quick Start screen.This
screen displays the currently selected Method along with its current parameter settings.To change
Methods, choose the Method Select button.
4.
Running A Method. To run a Method, choose the Run button. It will point left or right depending on
whether the first operation is a Withdraw (left) or Infuse (right) Step. If all the required parameters for
the Method are not set, the Run button will be inactive (grayed out).
5.
Lost? If you start navigating and suddenly you feel lost, choose the Cancel button or the Back Button.
Do that enough and eventually you will be back to the Method Main screen or Quick Start screen!
6.
Watch the Force. The PHD Ultra generates up to 75 lbs of force...enough to damage delicate syringes. A
Force Limit command in the Settings menu allows you to control the maximum force value.
7.
Get The Message. The Message Area on every screen provides a summary of what you are supposed to
do...and many screens offer warnings or cautions if you do something wrong.
8.
Set Your Syringe. One of the most basic selections on the system is choosing the syringe that is loaded.
This setting is persistent across all Quick Start Methods (the ones we loaded to help you get started
fast!).That means it will be the default syringe choice in every Quick Start Method once you set it up.
However, User-Defined Methods save their own syringe settings. If you are creating a New Method, the
default syringe will be the syringe selected for Quick Start Methods.
9.
Get Connected. If you are using the PHD Ultra in conjunction with external devices (ones you want to
trigger or ones that you will respond to), there are commands available to simplify the setup of these
connections.The Advanced Options in the Method Steps Profiles section of this manual describe these
functions.
10. Manual Pumping. Buttons for manual control of the pump (for fast infusion or fast withdrawal action)
are available on many screens in the application.

General Information
General Information
CONVENTIONS USED IN THIS GUIDE
This guide describes basic procedures for operating the PHD ULTRA™ Syringe Pump, including both
hardware operations and software operations accessed through the pump’s touchscreen display.This
section discusses important conventions used in this guide.
Capitalization
All menus, commands, and dialog box option names appear with initial capital letters whether or not they
are completely capitalized in the user interface.This includes navigation buttons and menu selection
buttons/selection lists on the touchscreen display.This will help you to distinguish these items from
narrative or procedural text.
Terminology
Throughout the PHD ULTRA™ documentation, the following terms are used to refer to program elements
and the actions that you perform to carry out tasks:
•
Method — A Method is the collection of steps and parameters that constitute the operating
instructions to the pump while being used to infuse or withdraw liquids.
•
Choose — The terms choose and select indicate actions that you perform using the touchscreen
interface. Choose represents carrying out an action associated with a parameter or navigation button.
Choose will be used when the choice you make is automatically executed. For example,“Choose the
Method Select” button automatically brings you to the Method Selection screen on the touchscreen.
When you are likely to use the touchscreen to enter alphanumeric data (e.g. a Method name or a
parameter numerical value through a simulated keyboard or number pad), the specific key is
mentioned, or we indicate you should “enter” your desired values.
•
Select — The term select refers to highlighting an item or moving the button focus on the touchscreen.
Selecting an item prepares it for an action and requires a second touch on the touchscreen to confirm
the selection. For example, when you “select” the Syringe Manufacturer/Brand on the Syringe Selection
screen, it is first highlighted in magenta. Pressing the selected choice a second time confirms/accepts
the selection.You can also press the Accept button to confirm the selection. We will use the term
“select” to refer to this double-press or press/confirm action throughout this guide.
Illustrations
Unless otherwise indicated, the values in the illustrations of this manual are examples only.They are not
intended to indicate the exact values you will see or to suggest the values you should use.
Special Messages/Callouts
The following special messages and callouts appear throughout the guide to indicate information that

Introduction To The PHD ULTRA™
Introduction To The PHD ULTRA™ Pump
PRODUCT OVERVIEW – THEORY OF OPERATION
The PHD ULTRA™ Syringe Pump series is a family of high-accuracy, microliter- and milliliter-compatible
pumps designed for versatile technical use including mass spectroscopy, calibration, drug and nutritional
infusions, microdialysis, dispensing, chromatography and LC/HPLC.The PHD ULTRA™ incorporates a
microprocessor controlled, small step angle stepping motor that drives a lead screw and Pusher Block.
Advanced micro-stepping techniques are employed to further reduce the step angle to eliminate flow
pulsation. The pump is engineered to provide flow accuracy within 0.35% and reproducibility within
0.05%.
The PHD ULTRA™ uses a touchscreen interface and advanced software to control operation. External I/O
interfaces permit external control via an independent computer or device.The application software
provides convenient selection of common syringe models from a Syringe Look Up Table, as well as
insertion of custom syringe specifications.The system is then able to calculate the cross-sectional area of
the syringe selected and calibrate the flow rate and volume accumulation, displaying real-time operating
characteristics via on-screen graphics.
PUMP MODELS
The PHD ULTRA™ Syringe Pump is available in three configurations designed for different operating
environments and varying degrees of operational flexibility.The configurations are:
•
Infuse Only: This model supports infusion operations at user-definable flow rates and with selectable
target volume or time values to control the total infusion volume.The entry-level Infuse Only model
does not include programmable, user-defined methods.
•
Infuse/Withdraw: This model supports infusion and withdrawal operations at user-definable flow rates
and with selectable target volumes or time values to control the total volume pumped for both the
infusion and withdraw portions of a procedure.This model provides access to many of the advanced
method programming options of the PHD Ultra, but only supports a single stored Method.
•
Infuse/Withdraw Programmable: This model supports both infusion and withdraw operations, and can
use both simpified pumping profiles or the more advanced pump profiles and I/O settings that permit
interactions with external devices. In addition to supporting all of the advanced programming tools
available on the PHD Ultra, this model also allows users to create and store multiple user-defined
Methods on the pump.
This manual has been written to accommodate Infuse/Withdraw/Programmable configurations. Where
features/capabilities are not available in the Infuse Only or Infuse/Withdraw basic models, we have
identified that in the manual.

OVERVIEW OF METHODS
To operate the PHD ULTRA™, you will define all the required parameters for withdrawing or infusing
liquids through a Pump Control Method. The Pump Control Methods will be commonly referred to as
Methods. A Method defines:
•
Details about the syringe being used for the application
•
How rapidly you will be dispensing or withdrawing the target fluids
•
A target volume or target time for the dispensing or withdrawing operation
•
The pumping pattern you want to employ (e.g. pump at a continuous rate, in a ramped fashion, using
variable rate steps, etc.)
•
Outbound triggers to external devices
•
Responses to signals from external devices
The PHD ULTRA™ is shipped with a set of pre-installed Methods that are designed to help you to quickly
use the pump in common applications.These pre-installed Methods include:
•
•
Quick Start Methods which are simple infuse, withdraw, or combination (infuse and withdraw)
Methods that operate in a single step and at a constant rate of flow.
✐
Preloaded Methods which use more complex Method programming capabilities to describe
commonly encountered applications.
NOTE: What Methods are available on your pump depend on the specific model you are
using. An Infuse Only model supports only the Quick Start Infuse Method. The
Infuse/Withdraw model supports all Quick Start Methods and one custom Method.The
Infuse/Withdraw Programmable model supports all Methods described in this manual.
In addition, users of the Infuse/Withdraw Programmable model PHD Ultra can quickly create customize
Methods to support more complex dispensing scenarios including:

METHOD TYPES
EZ PRO Quick Start
EZ PRO Quick Start Methods are designed for simple infusion or withdrawal applications, pumping at a
constant flow rate for either a predetermined time period until a preset volume is pumped, or running in
continuous operation until stopped. The PHD ULTRA™ is supplied with the following pre-installed Quick
Start Methods, depending on the model of PHD Ultra pump you are using:
•
•
•
•
Infusion Only (All Models)
The Infusion Only Quick Start Method is designed to pump liquids from the syringe at a set flow rate.
Users can set a Target Volume or Time period for operation. If no Target Volume or Time value is
entered, the pump runs continuously until the Mechanical Stop is reached or the user presses the
Method Stop button.
Withdraw Only (Infuse/Withdraw and Infuse Withdraw Programmable Models)
The Withdraw Only Quick Start Method is designed to withdraw liquids into the syringe at a set flow
rate. Users can set a Target Volume or Time period for operation. If no Target Volume or Time value is
entered, the pump runs continuously until the Mechanical Stop is reached or the user presses the
Method Stop button.
Infuse/Withdraw Sequence (Infuse/Withdraw and Infuse Withdraw Programmable Models)
The Infusion/Withdraw Quick Start Method is designed to cycle through an infusion operation
followed by a withdraw operation. The user can set separate flow rates for both the infusion and
withdraw sequences. In addition, the user must set a Target Volume for the Method.
Withdraw/Infuse Sequence (Infuse/Withdraw and Infuse Withdraw Programmable Models)
The Withdraw/Infuse Quick Start Method is designed to cycle through a withdraw operation followed
by an infusion operation. The user can set separate flow rates for both the withdraw and infuse
sequences. In addition, the user must set a Target Volume for the Method.
EZ PRO Preloaded
Preloaded Methods have been designed by Harvard Apparatus engineers to accommodate commonly
employed pump control delivery protocols. These applications include infuse, withdraw and combined
infuse and withdraw protocols.
Preloaded Methods can be edited on Infuse/Withdraw and Infuse/Withdraw Programmable models of the
PHD Ultra. They are not available on the Infuse Only model.
The Preloaded Methods are continuously updated by Harvard Apparatus Engineers, so the Methods
installed on different pumps may vary. For details on specific use of these Methods, refer to the applicable
instructions in the Quick Start or User-Defined Methods sections of this manual.
EZ PRO User-Defined Methods
User-Defined Methods are created by the user through the application.To create a custom Pump Control
Method, you choose/set syringe specifications, then define the infusion or withdraw operations desired
using the available Pump Operation Profiles. User-Defined Methods can be stored on the PHD ULTRA™ up
to the maximum memory capacity of the pump (approximately 800 Method steps). The user can manage
the library of stored Methods using convenient touchscreen controls.

USING AN EZ PRO PRELOADED/USER-DEFINED METHOD
The Preloaded Methods and User-defined Methods each use the PHD ULTRA™’s integrated tools that guide
users through creation/editing of a custom Pump Control Method. Pump Control Methods consist of the
following set of operating parameters:
•
The Method Name
•
Syringe Specifications
•
The set of Pump Operation Profile steps that describe how the pump will control the flow of material
for infusion or withdrawal operations
•
Any additional commands to control the execution of the steps
•
Any input/output (I/O) triggers/responses used to control external devices or respond to input signals
from external devices.
Both the Preloaded and User-Defined Methods offer the user the flexibility to apply pumping profiles other
than continuous rate infusion/withdrawal. The PHD ULTRA™ offers a menu of advanced pumping profiles,
including:
•
Constant Rate: a single continuous rate of flow
•
Ramped Rate: a linearly changing flow rate between a starting and ending flow rate
•
Stepped Rate: an evenly-stepped, changing flow rate between a starting and ending flow rate
•
Pulsed Rate: an oscillating flow rate varying between a starting and a target rate
•
Bolus Delivery: an infusion operation to occur for a specified volume or time. The default Infusion
Rate is the maximum permissible for the selected syringe, but it can be changed
•
Concentration Infusion: a measured flow rate based on delivery of a specific dosage to a recipient
based on the recipient’s weight
•
Autofill Cycling: continuous infuse-withdraw operation.
In addition, you have access to a variety of controls that allow the PHD ULTRA™ to repeat, loop back or
jump forward in a Method, as well as send signals to external devices or react to signals received from
external devices. This package of pumping profiles and commands provides users with an extremely broad
array of applications that can be easily configured without the use of complex external programming.
The Preloaded Methods provide a starting set of Methods that define some commonly used application
protocols. These Methods can be edited and saved under a new name, or simply edited to fit your specific
requirements. Creating a new User-Defined Method permits you to leverage all the options available on the
PHD ULTRA™.

function that currently occupies that position. For example, if you create a Go To jump to Step 4 in a
Method (currently a Bolus Pump Operation Profile) and subsequently move a Constant Rate profile into the
Step 4 position, the Go To jump will then connect to the Constant Rate operation and not to the Bolus
operation.

PUMP CHAIN COMMANDS
The Pump Chain commands allow all pump control information to be managed from an external computer
source. These commands can also be used to control a series of pumps (up to 100) from a single computer
interface.
PHD Ultra commands are communicated to the pump via the RS-232 or USB port interfaces through a
terminal program such as HyperTerminal. In using the Pump Chain commands, you will need to assign
each pump in the pump chain a unique address, using the Set Pump Address command in the Settings
menu. The address range is from 00 to 99. This address value is used to identify which pump is to receive a
command and which pump is responding. Configure each pump with its assigned address and baud rate
as described in the Pump Settings section of this Guide.
Using the PHD ULTRA™ Pump Chain Commands
The following instructions will help you to utilize the Pump Chain commands feature on the PHD ULTRA™
pump.
Commands may be abbreviated to the first four letters, i.e. address would be abbreviated addr. A space
must follow the command if arguments are included.
If the pump address is nonzero, the one or two-digit pump address precedes the command and is separated
by a colon. For example, to set the infuse rate for pump 12, the command would look like “12:irat 3.2
ul/min”.
In the command list below, the following convention is used:
{}

status
Displays the raw status for a controlling computer. The output is in three integer fields and one flag field,
all separated by spaces and terminated by a carriage return/linefeed pair.
The first integer is the rate in femtoliters per second. The second integer is the infuse time in seconds. The
third integer is the infused volume in femtoliters. All three values are for the current direction.
The flag field consists of five flags.
The first flag is the motor direction and will be “i” if the pump is infusing and “w” if the pump is
withdrawing.
The second flag is the limit switch status. If the infuse limit switch was hit,“I” is displayed. If the withdraw
limit switch was hit,“W” is displayed. If no limit switch was hit,“.” is displayed. (The PHD ULTRA™ does not
use limit switches, so “.” will always be returned in this position”)
The third flag is the stall status and will be “S” if the pump has stalled. Otherwise it will be “.”.
The fourth flag is the trigger input state and will be “T” if high and “.” if low.
The fifth flag is the direction port state and will be “I” for infuse and “W” for withdraw.

Both syringes and the fittings are constructed of #316 stainless steel. The 8 ml
syringe uses a pair of perfluoroelastomer o-rings with Teflon back-up rings.
When used with Harvard PHD 4400 high pressure pump, working pressures of
1500 psi can be achieved (great for chromatography and process control
applications). The 2.5 ml syringe utilizes a Bal Seal with PEEK back-up ring.
When used with a 4400 pump, working pressures of 7000 psi can be achieved.

APPENDIX F: MAINTENANCE
Maintenance
PHD ULTRA™ series pumps require no special maintenance other than keeping them clean by avoiding
accidental spills of pumped material. Refer to the chemical compatibility chart below for specific chemical
resistance information.
The two guide rods and the lead screw should be sparingly lubricated periodically; every 200 hrs the pump
will remind you.The guide rods and the lead screw should be lubricated with Super Lube Synthetic Grease
provided with the pump.
To clean the exterior surfaces, use a lint-free cloth to remove loose dust. Use care to avoid scratching the
clear display window. For more efficient cleaning, use a soft cloth dampened [not soaked] with water, an
aqueous solution of 75% isopropyl alcohol, or a mild detergent.

Troubleshooting
Infusion Accuracy
To ensure infusion accuracy always use new syringe(s) and measure syringe bore diameter and enter actual
dimensions in millimeters (mm) using the Custom Syringe entry option. Additionally, make sure that the
guide rods and lead screw are properly lubricated.
RS-232 Difficulties
Verify that the baud rates, data framing parameters, data bits, parity, and stop bits on all devices are the
same. Verify flow control (handshaking) is set to None. If an address is set to other than address Ø, make
sure commands and queries are prefixed with the address. Make sure straight-through pinning is used for
the cables; do not use null-modem cables.
Erase/Clear Disc:
There may be an instance where you want to delete all of your custom methods from the pump. There may
also be instances where you may need to delete/clear the disc in order to power up the pump. To do so:
•
Turn the pump on.
•
When the start-up screen appears, press the 4 corners of the display in a clockwise order starting at
the top left. After each corner is correctly pressed, it will turn dark gray.
•
Press yes to confirm or wait 5 seconds to allow the pump to start normally without clearing the disc.
•
There is a 5 second time limit for each press of the screen. If the time limit expires, the pump will
start normally without clearing the disc.

PHD ULTRA™ Display Error Messages
Motor Stalled
This indicates that the pusher block travel has been impeded. This may be caused by the syringe plunger
hitting bottom, a kink in the tubing (occlusion), syringe plunger binding or any situation requiring more
force to the head of the syringe than the pump is capable of delivering. To restart the pump, remove the
cause of stalling and/or increase the force setting, then press RUN. The pump will continue the interrupted
procedure where it stopped.
Out of Range
A value was entered or encountered in a pump program that was beyond the pump’s limits.
Power Failure Notification
If power to the pump is interrupted during operation, an alarm will sound to alert the user to the
interruption. When power is restored, an onscreen message is displayed to indicate the interruption.
Figure 97:
The PHD ULTRA™ Pump will notify you of a power failure with a message when power is restored.
Low Battery Indication
Time/Date area will turn red when battery is low. [See page 111 for instructions on changing the battery.]
