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 one-page 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.
Message 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.
Run Preview: Access the Method Preview
screen that shows a summary of steps and
operating parameters.
Run/Resume: Used to Run or Resume a
Method.
Fast Forward: Advances the Pusher Block
in the forward (infuse) direction.
Fast Reverse: Advances the Pusher Block
in the reverse (withdraw) direction.
Back: Used to go back one screen.
Touch Screen Unlocked: Indicates that the
Touch Screen is currently unlocked. Pressing
the button twice locks the Touch Screen.
Settings: Access the settings menu used to
adjust Date, Time, Audible Alarm, Pusher
Block Force, Backlighting, etc.
Navigation Buttons:
this area of the touchscreen contains the
buttons used to navigate through the software
menus and to start/stop pump operations.
Set Delay Parameters: Used to set the date
and time values for delayed operation. This
permits the pump to start automatically on
the date/time selected.
Navigation Buttons. Review the Touch Screen 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.
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.
9.
1.
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 Lookup 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 models designed for different operating environments
and varying degrees of operational flexibility.
Infusion 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 Infusion
Only model does not include programmable, user-defined methods.
•
Infusion/Withdrawal: This model supports infusion and withdrawal operations at user-definable flow
rates and with selectable target volume or time values to control the total volume pumped for both the
infusion and withdrawal 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.
•
Infusion/Withdrawal Programmable: This model supports both infusion and withdrawal operations,
and can use both simpified pumping profiles or the more advanced pumping 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.
•
✐
NOTE: 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.
PUMP CONFIGURATIONS
The PHD ULTRA™ Syringe Pump is available in the following configurations:
•
Remote Pump: This configuration is a two piece unit, with the syringe pumping mechanism and the
control box separated by a 2 meter cable. One meter and 0.5 m cables are available for purchase
separately.
•
Push/Pull Pump: This configuration consists of a single unit with the syringe pumping mechanism
attached to the top of the control box. The pump can hold up to four syringes; 2 on either side of the
pusher block. The pump can simultaneously infuse and withdraw the exact same amount.
•
Satellite Pump Units: Satellite units consist of a syringe pumping mechanism and control electronics
but do not have a user interface. They are powered and controlled from a master/stand-alone
PHD ULTRA™ via the RS-485 cable.
Standard Pump: This configuration is the most common. It consists of a single unit with the syringe
pumping mechanism attached to the top of the control box.

NAVIGATING THE PHD ULTRA™ EZ PRO™ SOFTWARE
The PHD ULTRA™ uses a high resolution touchscreen with an icon-enabled graphical user interface and an advanced
methods architecture to streamline simple to complex tasks.
The PHD ULTRA™ Workspace
The PHD ULTRA™ touchscreen interface is divided into three basic areas:
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.
Message 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.
Navigation Buttons: this area of the
touchscreen contains the buttons used to
navigate through the software menus and
to start/stop pump operations.
The PHD ULTRA™ Touch Screen Display. The screen shown is the Quick Start display.
The PHD ULTRA™ touchscreen with EZ PRO™ Software allows you to navigate through all menu selections and data
entry by gently touching the onscreen buttons with a finger or the tip of a soft, non-sharp object such as a pencil
eraser.
The software is organized into three main navigational branches:
•

Choose an operating Method which defines the syringe being used, the direction (infuse or withdraw) and rate of
flow, as well as any dynamic control of external devices. If one does not exist, you will create a new Method.
Ent e r Ope r a t i n g P aram eters
STEP 3 :
Enter the operating parameters for each step in your method, including specifics about the syringe/syringes being used,
the type of flow operations you want to use, that rate of flow and any details that define the pumping operation.

STEP 4 :
Check all settings using the Method preview function. Change any required parameters as necessary.
R un Your M e t h o d
Method Monitor real-time status detailing the progress of the Method.
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 depends on the specific model you
are using. An Infusion Only model supports only the Quick Start Infuse Method. The
Infusion/Withdrawal model supports all Quick Start Methods and one custom Method. The
Infusion/Withdrawal Programmable model supports all Methods described in this manual.
In addition, users of the Infusion/Withdrawal Programmable model PHD ULTRA™ can quickly create
custom Methods to support more complex dispensing scenarios including:
•
Multiple infusions
•
Ramped or stepped infusion rates
•
Periodic dispensing loops
•
Combination infuse and withdraw profiles
•
External system control or response to external signals

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:
•
Infuse Only (All Models)
The Infuse 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 (Infusion/Withdrawal and Infusion/Withdrawal 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 (Infusion/Withdrawal and Infusion/Withdrawal Programmable Models)
The Infuse/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 withdrawal
sequences. In addition, the user must set a Target Volume for the Method.
•
Withdraw/Infuse Sequence (Infusion/Withdrawal and Infusion/Withdrawal 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 withdrawal 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 Infusion/Withdrawal and Infusion/Withdrawal 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 select New Method. After naming the method, select the syringe, then define the infuse
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 approximately 800 program
steps (programmable model only). The user can manage the library of stored Methods using convenient
touchscreen controls.

Using The PHD ULTRA™
S Y RI NG E S E LE CTI O N
In order to accurately control the flow rate or volume delivery of the pump, the PHD ULTRA™ requires
that each method include accurate setting of the syringe diameter and volume. All Methods (Quick
Start, Preloaded, User-Defined) require a syringe definition, either by selecting from the installed syringe
specifications list or by defining a new (Custom) syringe in the application.
The built-in Syringe Lookup Table provides a convenient lookup function that allows users to select from
a wide variety of syringes from major manufacturers, including: Air-Tite, Becton Dickinson, Hamilton,
Harvard Apparatus, Cadence Science, SGE Scientific Glass Engineering, Sherwood – Monoject, and
Terumo. This Guide also includes a reference table of major syringe diameter and volume parameters in
Appendix A: Syringe Volume/Diameter Reference Table.
The following parameters must be set for every syringe selection:
•
Syringe Diameter: mm
•
Syringe Volume: ml or μl
!
✐
WARNING: When using low-volume, small diameter syringes or pumping
high-viscosity liquids, you should adjust the Force value in the Settings
menu to avoid accidental damage to the syringe.
NOTE: For Master/Satellite configurations, changing diameter at the Master will
change the diameter at all satellites.
TO SELECT A SYRINGE USING THE SYRINGE LOOKUP FUNCTION:
From the Quick Start or Method Main screen, choose the Syringe Select button.

The Quick Start Infuse Rate and Withdraw Rate Select functions define the rate of pumping while infusing
or withdrawing liquids respectively. The two functions are controlled identically, so we have described
the operation here only once.
When adjusting the Infuse Rate, you can set the rate in ml, µl, nl or pl units of volume and use sec, min
or hr as the units of time. The system automatically calculates a minimum and maximum flow rate based
on the syringe selected or custom-defined. The min/max values are made available as button selection
options on the Set Infuse and Withdraw Rate screens.
✐
NOTE: The following instructions describe setting the Infuse Rate. The instructions are
the same for Withdraw Rate. On an Infuse/Withdraw combination Method, you can set

Using The PHD ULTRA™
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 Information
•
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 Flow: an oscillating flow rate varying between a starting and a target rate
•
Bolus Delivery: an infusion operation to occur for a specified volume and time. The Infusion Rate is
automatically calculated
•
Concentration Infusion: a measured flow rate based on delivery of a specific dosage to a recipient
based on the recipient’s weight
•
Gradient: Combined flow streams from mutiple pumps into a common output stream.
• Autofill Cycling: continuous infuse/withdraw or withdraw/infuse operation.
In addition, you have access to a variety of Advanced Options 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™.

G O TO S TE P
The Go To Command is used to instruct the PHD ULTRA™ to jump to a particular Step in a Method. This
can be used to help you loop back or jump forward in a Method protocol and can be used in conjunction
with I/O Events to make the pump respond to a trigger from an external device.
When defining a Go To jump in a Method, the Command targets the Step sequence position and not the
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.
TO INSERT A GO TO JUMP:
1. From the Method Main screen, choose Step Definition to enter the Method Steps Summary screen.
2. Highlight (select once) the Method Step that you want the Go To jump to follow.

RE P E AT S TE P
The Repeat Command is used to repeat Steps in a procedure a defined number of times. To use this
Command, you will tell the application what Steps you want to Repeat and how many times you want
them repeated. The Repeat Step command creates a “jump” back to a specific Step in a Method that
executes the defined Step plus all following Steps up to the Repeat command (i.e. it creates a Method
loop).
When defining a Repeat jump in a Method, the Command targets the Step sequence position and not the
function that currently occupies that position. For example, if you create a Repeat 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 Repeat jump will then connect to the Constant Rate operation and not to the Bolus

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. The first pump in the chain, the one connected to
the computer, must use address 0 (zero). Configure each pump with its assigned address and baud rate as
described in the Pump Settings section of this Guide.
NOTE: Once communication is established, if you manipulate the touchscreen, you must
reestablish communication <CR>.
✐
NOTE: When daisy-chaining using the RJ-11 option, all pumps must use the same
baud rate. Values above 38400 are recommended.
✐
NOTE: If you are using the optional RJ-11 connections for daisy-chaining, the
connection from the computer must also come through the RJ-11 or RS-232 connectors.
✐
NOTE: System commands and start/stop commands can be executed from method or
Quickstart screens. For parameter commands it is necessary to run from Quickstart screen.
✐
NOTE: To maximize communication speed [as fast as 50 ms rate changes]:
(a) prefix commands with the @ symbol to turn off GUI updates (ex: @irate 100 u/m)
(b) use the ‘NVRAM off’ command to turn off writes of rate to memory
✐
Using PHD ULTRA™ Pump Chain Commands
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 without any
separator. For example, to set the infuse rate for pump 12, the command would look like “12irat 3.2
u/m”. If the pump address is one digit, it doesn’t have to be preceded by a 0. Note that if the USB port is
used on a pump with a nonzero address, the pump address doesn’t need to be used.
Every line of the response from a pump with a nonzero address is prefixed by the two digit pump address
(prefixed with a 0 if necessary) followed by a colon. No colon is used to separate the pump address from
the prompt however.

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 current rate in femtoliters per second. The second integer
is the infuse time in milliseconds. The time has a granularity of 1 millisecond. The third integer is the
infused volume in femtoliters. All three values are for the current direction.
The flag field consists of six flags.
• Flag one is the motor direction and will be “i or I” if the pump is infusing and “w or W” if the
pump is withdrawing. If the letter is lower case, the pump motor is idle. If upper case, the
pump motor is running.
• Flag two is the limit switch status. If the infuse limit switch was hit, “i or I” is displayed. If the
withdraw limit switch was hit, “w or W” is displayed. If no limit switch was hit or the pump does not have limit switches, “.” is displayed.
• Flag three is the stall status and will be “S” if the pump has stalled.
• Flag four is the trigger input state and will be “T” if high and “.” if low.
• Flag five is the direction port state and will be “i or I” for infuse and “w or W” for withdraw.
Otherwise it will be “.”.
• Flag six is the target reached status. It will be “T” if the target time or volume was reached
and “.” if not.

NOTE: When daisy-chaining with RS-485, at minimum, every fourth pump must be self
powered (i.e., another stand-alone unit). This can be affected by Force Selection.
NOTE: When applying power to pumps in a daisy-chain, apply power to the last group
and work backwards.
NOTE: When removing power, be sure to remember that power removed from a
stand-alone unit will also cause power to be removed from all RS-485 powered units
deriving power from it.
✐
NOTE: Power may be removed from any group of pumps, except the first group,
without affecting communications “down-stream’.

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 100 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.
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 119 for instructions on changing the battery.]
