5 Information for returning pumps
Equipment which has been contaminated with, or exposed to, body fluids, toxic
chemicals or any other substance hazardous to health must be decontaminated
before it is returned to Watson-Marlow or its distributor.
A certificate included at the rear of these operating instructions, or signed statement, must be attached to the outside of the shipping carton. This certificate is
required even if the pump is unused.
If the pump has been used, the fluids that have been in contact with the pump and
the cleaning procedure must be specified along with a statement that the equipment
has been decontaminated.
DuN, Du
6 Peristaltic pumps - an overview
Peristaltic pumps are the simplest pump, with no valves, seals or glands to clog or
corrode. The fluid contacts only the bore of a tube, eliminating the risk of the pump
contaminating the fluid, or the fluid contaminating the pump. Peristaltic pumps can
run dry.
How they work
A compressible tube is squeezed between a roller and a track on an arc of a circle,
creating a seal at the point of contact. As the roller advances along the tube, the
seal also advances. After the roller has passed, the tube returns to its original shape,
creating a partial vacuum which is filled by fluid drawn from the inlet port.
Before the roller reaches the end of the track, a second roller compresses the tube
at the start of the track, isolating a packet of fluid between the compression points.
As the first roller leaves the track, the second continues to advance, expelling the
packet of fluid through the pump’s discharge port. At the same time, a new partial
vacuum is created behind the second roller into which more fluid is drawn from the
inlet port.
Backflow and siphoning do not occur, and the pump effectively seals the tube when
it is inactive. No valves are needed.
The principle may be demonstrated by squeezing a soft tube between thumb and
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual

finger and sliding it along: fluid is expelled from one end of the tube while more is
drawn in at the other.
Animal digestive tracts function in a similar way.
Suitable applications
Peristaltic pumping is ideal for most fluids, including viscous, shear-sensitive, corrosive and abrasive fluids, and those containing suspended solids. They are especially useful for pumping operations where hygiene is important.
Peristaltic pumps operate on the positive displacement principle. They are particularly suitable for metering, dosing and dispensing applications. Pumps are easy to
install, simple to operate and inexpensive to maintain.

work. In the UK this person should also be familiar with the Health and Safety at
Work Act 1974.
There are moving parts inside the pumphead. Before opening the toolunlockable fixed guard (620R) or tool-unlockable track (620L), ensure that
the following safety directions are followed.
Ensure that the pump is isolated from the mains power.
Ensure that there is no pressure in the pipeline.
If a tube failure has occurred, ensure that any fluid in the pumphead has been
allowed to drain to a suitable vessel, container or drain.
Ensure that protective clothing and eye protection are worn if hazardous fluids
are pumped.
Primary operator protection from rotating parts of the pump is provided by the
pumphead fixed guard. Note that guards differ, depending on the type of
pumphead. See the pumphead sections of this manual: 29 and 33.
Secondary operator protection from rotating parts of the pump is provided by
indicator-only switching of the pumphead guard. This function will stop the
pump if the guard is inadvertently opened while the pump is running. For
details of permissible pumphead orientations, see the pumphead sections of
this manual: 29 and 33.
This pump must be used only for its intended purpose. The pump must be accessible at all times to facilitate operation and maintenance. Access points must not be
obstructed or blocked. The pump’s mains plug is the disconnecting device (for iso-

lating the motor drive from the mains supply in an emergency). Do not position the
pump so that it is difficult to disconnect the mains plug. Do not fit any devices to the
drive unit other than those tested and approved by Watson-Marlow. Doing so could
lead to injury to persons or damage to property for which no liability can be accepted.
If hazardous fluids are to be pumped, safety procedures specific to the particular
fluid and application must be put in place to protect against injury to persons.
The exterior surfaces of the pump may get hot during operation. Do not take hold
of the pump while it is running. Let it cool after use before handling it.
No attempt should be made to run the drive without a pumphead fitted.
The pump weighs more than 18kg (the exact weight depends on model and pumphead—see 8 Pump specifications). Lifting should be performed according to standard
Health and Safety guidelines. Finger recesses are built into the sides of the lower
shell for convenience in lifting; in addition, the pump can conveniently be lifted by
grasping the pumphead and (where fitted) the 620N module at the rear of the pump.

9 Good pump installation practice
9.1 General recommendations
Position
A correctly engineered installation will promote long tube life. Site the pump on a
flat, horizontal, rigid surface, free from excessive vibration, to ensure correct lubrication of the gearbox. Allow a flow of air around the pump to ensure that heat can
be dissipated. Ensure that the temperature around the pump does not exceed 40C.
Do not stack other 620 pumps on top of this pump. It is, however, acceptable to
stack other equipment on the upper surface of the 620 (as long as the ambient temperature does not exceed 40C).
Emergency disconnection
The pump’s mains plug is the disconnecting device (for isolating the motor drive
from the mains supply in an emergency). Do not position the pump so that it is difficult to disconnect the mains plug. The STOP key on the keypad will always stop
the pump. However, it is recommended that a suitable local emergency stop device
is fitted into the mains supply to the pump.
Valves
Peristaltic pumps are self-priming and self-sealing against backflow. No valves are
required in inlet or discharge lines. Valves in the process flow must be opened before
the pump operates. Users are advised to fit a pressure relief device between the
pump and any valve on the discharge side of the pump to protect against damage
caused by accidental operation with the discharge valve closed.
The pump may be set up so that the direction of rotor rotation is clockwise or counter-clockwise, whichever is convenient.
Tubing materials: run-in advice
Sta-Pure and Marprene TM tubing are hard to compress when new. When using
tubing made of these materials, the first five pumphead revolutions should be at a
speed of 10rpm or greater. If the pump is run slower, the safety system built into
pump drive’s software may cause it to stop and display an over-current error
message.
Pressure advice
In most circumstances, rotor and tube life are maximised if the pumphead is run
slowly, particularly when pumping at high pressure. However, to maintain
performance at pressures above 2 bar, avoid running the pumphead below 50rpm.
If low-flow, high-pressure operation is necessary, switching to a smaller tube is
recommended.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
14
9.2 Do’s and do not’s
Do not build a pump into a tight location without adequate airflow around the pump.
Do ensure that when the 620N watertight module is fitted the seals are intact and
properly located. Ensure that the holes for cable glands are properly sealed to maintain the IP66 / NEMA 4X rating.
Do not strap the control and mains power cables together.
Do keep delivery and suction tubes as short and direct as possible - though ideally
not shorter than 1m - and follow the straightest route. Use bends of large radius: at
least four times the tubing diameter. Ensure that connecting pipework and fittings
are suitably rated to handle the predicted pipeline pressure. Avoid pipe reducers and
lengths of smaller bore tubing than the pumphead section, particularly in pipelines
on the suction side. Any valves in the pipeline (not usually needed) must not restrict
the flow. Any valves in the flow line must be open when the pump is running.
Do use suction and delivery pipes equal to or larger than the bore of the tube in the
pumphead. When pumping viscous fluids use pipe runs with a bore several times
larger than the pump tube.
Do ensure that on longer tube runs at least 1m of smooth bore flexible tubing is connected to the inlet and discharge port of the pumphead to help to minimize impulse
losses and pulsation in the pipeline. This is especially important with viscous fluids
and when connecting to rigid pipework.
Do site the pump at or just below the level of the fluid to be pumped if possible.
This will ensure flooded suction and maximum pumping efficiency.
Do keep the pumphead track and all moving parts clean and free from contamination and debris.
Do run at slow speed when pumping viscous fluids (though see Pressure advice in
9.1 General recommendations). Flooded suction will enhance pumping performance
in all cases, particularly for materials of a viscous nature.
Do recalibrate after changing pump tubes, fluid, or any connecting pipework. It is
also recommended that the pump is recalibrated periodically to maintain accuracy.
IP66 / NEMA 4X models may be hosed down, but should not be immersed. Protect
from prolonged UV exposure.
IP31 models may be wiped with a damp cloth, but should not be hosed or
immersed. The front of IP31 models is further protected against light spillages onto
the pump.
When using Marprene or Bioprene continuous tubing, do re-tension the tube
after the first 30 minutes of running.
Tube selection: The chemical compatibility lists published in Watson-Marlow publications are guides. If in doubt about the compatibility of a tube material and the
duty fluid, request a Watson-Marlow tube sample card for immersion trials.

10 Connecting this product
to a power supply
A well regulated electrical mains supply is required along with cable connections
conforming to the best practice of noise immunity. It is not recommended to site
these drives alongside “dirty” electrical mains supplies such as 3-phase
contactors and inductive heaters without special attention being paid to
unacceptable mains-borne noise.
The voltage selector is mounted in the switchplate at
the rear of the pump, protected from water by the
620N module (620DuN). The module must be
removed to allow access to the switchplate. See 22.1
620N module removal and replacement. Set the
voltage selector to 115V for 100-120V 50/60Hz
supplies or 230V for 200-240V 50/60Hz supplies.
Always check the voltage selector switch before connecting the mains supply. Make suitable connection
to an earthed, single-phase mains electricity supply.
We recommend using commercially available supply voltage
surge suppression where there
is excessive electrical noise.
Power cable: The pump is supplied fitted with either of two cable glands and
approximately 2.8m of power cable. The European cable is to Harmonised code
H05RN-F3G0.75, used with our gland part number SL0128 which is suitable for an
outside cable sheath diameter of 4-7mm. The north American cable is to type
SJTOW 105C 3-18AWG VW-1 used with our gland part number SL0123 which is suitable for an outside cable sheath diameter of 7-9mm.
DuN
Power cables of NEMA 4X specification pumps are fitted with a standard US mains
power plug. IP66 specification pumps are supplied with no plug. Wiring a mains plug
must only be undertaken by suitably skilled, qualified personnel.

14.1 Keypad functions
All settings and functions of the pump in manual mode are set and controlled by
means of key-presses. Immediately after the start-up display sequence detailed
above, the manual mode main screen will be displayed. The currently selected rotation direction is indicated on the display by a clockwise or counter-clockwise segmented arrow. If an exclamation
mark ( ! ) shows, it indicates that
Auto-restart is on. If a padlock icon
(
) shows, it indicates that
Keypad lock is on.
Note: A number of the controls
listed below are shortcuts to commands which are also available
through the Main menu. See 15

Note: SHIFT gives access to functions which appear on the upper
part of numeric keys. To access the
MAX function, for example, press
SHIFT once and release it. A symbol appears in the bottom left of the display to indicate that the next keypress will
be SHIFTed. Press 4 (MAX).
A brief single press on each key triggers a beep sound (if enabled - see 14.5 Keypad
beep) and causes the pump to function as follows:
START: starts the pump at the speed and in the direction shown on the display. The rotation symbol will become animated to confirm that the pump is
operating.
If the pump is running when START is pressed, it causes the information
shown on the manual mode main screen to cycle from revolutions per minute,
to flowrate in a choice of units (via a warning screen if flowrate has not been
calibrated and if this is the first cycle since power-up) to rpm, flowrate and Run
time. An example is shown here. The default can be altered from within the
Setup menu (see 18.3 Display).
MAX (SHIFT, 4): while pressed, MAX (SHIFT, 4) operates the pump at the
maximum allowed speed and in the direction shown on the display. When
released, the pump returns to its previous status.
Note: Priming can be achieved by pressing MAX (SHIFT, 4) until fluid flows
through the pump and reaches the point of discharge, and then releasing MAX
(SHIFT, 4).

DOWN keys to make a choice. Press the ENTER key to confirm your decision.
When started under analogue or network control, the pump runs at the speed
set by any analogue or serial communications signal applied to the pump, and
in the direction shown in the display.
MAN (SHIFT, 6): stops the pump if it is running in an auto mode and displays
the manual mode main screen. Has no effect if the pump is already running in
manual mode.
STOP: if the pump is running, pressing STOP stops the pump. The display will
continue to show the previous speed and direction. The pump will return to this
speed and direction when the START key is pressed again.
UP: increases the speed shown on the display in minimum steps of 0.1rpm, or
other steps as pre-selected in the Scrolling section of Setup (18.15), (unless
the speed displayed is already the maximum allowed speed). If the pump is
then started by pressing the START key, it will operate at the new speed. If
the pump is running when UP in pressed, the change takes effect immediately.
Note: If the pump’s flow rate has been calibrated (see 17 Calibration), after a
speed change a screen showing the new rpm figure and the new flowrate is
displayed for four seconds before returning the user to the previously set manual mode main screen: rpm or flowrate.
DOWN: decreases the speed shown on the display in minimum steps of
0.1rpm, or other steps as pre-selected in the Scrolling section of Setup
(18.15). If the pump is then started by pressing the START key, it operates at
the new speed. The minimum speed possible is 0.1rpm. If the pump is running
when DOWN is pressed, the change takes effect immediately.
Note: If the pump’s flow rate has been calibrated (see 17 Calibration), after a
speed change a screen showing the new rpm figure and the new flowrate is
displayed for four seconds before returning the user to the previously set manual mode main screen: rpm or flowrate.
Note: You can reduce the pump speed from 0.1rpm (or any other minimum
displayed unit of speed as selected in the Scrolling section of Setup (18.15)) to
0rpm by a further press on the DOWN key. The pump is still in the running
state and the rotation symbol will continue to move. Press the UP key to return
the pump to the minimum speed.
Note: If a minimum allowed speed has been set in the Set Min Speed section
of the Setup menu, the above note on speed reduction to 0rpm does not apply.

17 Head and tubing calibration
The pump can display flowrate in a choice of units as well as speed in revolutions
per minute. It must first be calibrated.
Pump calibration can be limited to users who correctly enter a three-digit security
code. If a security code has been set, selecting Change from the calibration details
screen and confirming with the ENTER key causes the pump to display the Security
code entry sequence. See 18.22 Security code. If no security code has been set, the
pump displays the first screen of the calibration sequence.
To dispense the correct amount of fluid the pump must know which pumphead is fitted and the tube size in the pumphead. The pump is pre-programmed with default
flow rate figures for a range of pumpheads and tubes. You may also measure the
flow from the pump and enter this value for the most accurate calibration.
Use the UP and DOWN keys to highlight Calibrate in the main menu. Press
ENTER to confirm.
Alternatively ...
Press CAL (SHIFT, 8) to enter the calibration screen from the main running
screen, and return there after calibrating.
Then:
The pump displays its current settings: pumphead, tube size and flowrate; the
default for each standard pumphead is the largest tube the pumphead can
take. Example information is shown here.
Use the UP and DOWN keys to highlight Accept or Change. Press ENTER to
confirm.
If Accept is selected, the default or previously set flowrate data for that pumphead and tube size are used. The pump displays the main running screen.
If Change is selected with a security code in place, the pump starts its security
code entry sequence. See 18.22 Security code. When the correct code is
entered, the pump offers three options: Head and tube; Tube; and
Calibration dose. If Change is selected with no security code in place, the
three options are displayed immediately.
Use the UP and DOWN keys to make a selection. Press ENTER to confirm.

20 MemoDose
Each time the pump is started by pressing START, it records the number of pumphead revolutions which occur until STOP is pressed. The number of revolutions is
proportional to the volume of fluid which has been dispensed: the dose. The
MemoDose facility allows the user to repeat-dose a precise volume of fluid. To do so,
a quantity of fluid must be dispensed as the master dose which the MemoDose facility can repeat exactly or proportionately.
To dispense a master dose
In the manual mode main screen, set the appropriate pump speed and direction using the UP or DOWN keys and the DIRECTION (SHIFT, 1) key. An
example is shown here. A slower speed may make it easier for the user to
measure accurately - though it may not represent the duty condition.
Place a suitable measuring vessel under the pump delivery tube.
Press START. The pump runs and fluid is pumped into the vessel.
When the required volume of fluid has been dispensed, it is necessary to stop
the pump and display the MemoDose screen. This can be achieved in three
ways.
1 Press the STOP key twice within half a second. The pump stops and immediately displays the MemoDose screen.
OR...
2 Press the STOP key once. The pump stops. (This may make it easier to
ensure that the quantity of fluid that has been dispensed is sufficiently precise.) Then press the STOP key twice within half a second. The pump displays the MemoDose screen.
OR ...
3 Press the STOP key. The pump stops. Press the MENU (SHIFT, 7) key. Use
the UP or DOWN keys to select MemoDose. Press ENTER to confirm. The
pump displays the MemoDose screen.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
52
To repeat the dose
The pump has recorded the number of pumphead revolutions required to dispense the master dose. If the volume of fluid in the measuring vessel is the
volume required, press START to repeat the dose.
If the volume of fluid in the measuring vessel differs from the volume required,
the percentage may be adjusted within the limits 1% to 999% of the master
dose. Use the UP or DOWN keys to alter the percentage. Press START to dispense the new dose.
The display counts down as the dose proceeds and stops when the dose is
complete.
If STOP is pressed during dosing, the pump stops and returns the user to the
MemoDose percentage screen.
Press the STOP key twice within half a second if you wish to exit MemoDose and
return to manual operation.
20.1 Changing dosing speed
The user must exit MemoDose in order to change pump speed. After returning to
MemoDose, the pump dispenses the previous dose size at the new speed.
Press the STOP key twice within half a second. The pump displays the manual
mode main screen.
Do not start the pump. Doing so erases the previously recorded master
dose and replaces it in the pump’s memory with the current, unmeasured dose. Adjust the speed showing on the display using the UP or DOWN
keys.
Press the STOP key twice within half a second to return to MemoDose. The display shows the previous percentage dose size. The pump will dose at the new
speed.
Note: To retain the MemoDose value through a power interruption the pump must
be in auto-restart mode. The dosing cycle will resume at the start of a dose and wait
for START to be pressed, with the MemoDose percentage screen displayed. See
18.12 Auto-restart.

20.2 Footswitch operation and other
remote inputs and outputs with
MemoDose
A footswitch can be used to trigger MemoDose dispensing as a hands-free alternative to pressing START.
To operate MemoDose with a footswitch, briefly press the footswitch while the
MemoDose percentage screen is displayed.
The remote run/stop input is operational. If a dose is interrupted by a remote stop
signal, the dose will continue from where it stopped when the state is changed to
run.
Remote direction control is disabled. The leak-detection input is operational. All status outputs are operational.
Note: The keypad lock feature is particularly useful to prevent inadvertent dose
changes while using the MemoDose facility. Keypad lock continues to operate in
MemoDose if previously enabled; it can also be enabled while in MemoDose mode.

22 Automatic control wiring
using the 620N module
Interfacing the pump with other devices is by means of screw-terminal connectors
within the 620N watertight module at the rear of the pump. Suitable cable must be
passed into the module through one or more watertight cable glands and connected appropriately. The module must be removed to allow this.
It is important to check that the pump’s voltage setting matches the supply. The voltage selection switch
is on the rear panel of the drive. The module must be
removed (and replaced) to allow it to be checked.
22.1 620N module removal
and replacement
To remove the 620N watertight module:
The module is secured to the back of the drive unit by six M5x12 Pozidriv countersunk stainless steel screws.
Remove the six screws using a suitable crosspoint screwdriver, leaving the top
centre screw till last. Even when all screws have been removed, the sealing
strip may cause the module to adhere to the drive. If so, a gentle tap will free
it. Do not use a tool to lever it off.
The sealing strip should be retained within its channel on the face of the module. The transparent on/off switch cover should be retained on its flange on the
face of the module. Check the integrity of the seal and the transparent on/off
switch cover. If either is damaged, it must be renewed to maintain ingress protection.
If necessary, unplug the two 25-way D-connectors linking the module to the
pump drive. If necessary, remove the module’s earth link from the back of the
drive. However, the link is long enough to allow the module to fold back to give
access to the circuit board inside and to the back of the drive.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
55
To replace the 620N watertight module:
Check that the fuse in the fuseholder (ringed) does not need to be replaced.
Check that the voltage selector switch is correctly set.
Check that the sealing strip is fully in its channel on the face of the module.
Attach the module’s earth link wire. Replace and tighten its screw to 2Nm.
Push home the female (upper) and male 25-way D-connectors.
Hold the module in place. Do not disturb the seal or pinch the earth link wire or
D-connector ribbon cables, and screw in the retaining screws (top centre first).
Tighten to 2.5Nm.
Note: The 620N module must be properly fitted using all six screws. Without them,
the screw holes may corrode and IP66 (NEMA4X) protection will be compromised.
22.2 Wiring up
It is the user’s responsibility to ensure the pump’s safe and reliable operation under
remote and automatic control.
This pump’s 0V lines are commoned and mains transformer-isolated from ground
(floating ground). It can be connected to isolated 0V or grounded 0V interfaces.
Cable entry to the module is via up to four watertight cable glands. These may be
fitted in place of the plugs which seal the module when the pump is shipped.
The number of glands needed depends on the
number of connection cables required and the
convenience of the installer. As standard, four
M16 cable glands are provided with the pump.
Recommended control cables must be used
for the terminal blocks: metric = 0.14sq mm
- 2.5sq mm solid and 0.14sq mm - 1.5sq mm
stranded. USA = 26AWG - 14AWG solid and 26AWG - 16AWG stranded. Cable:
circular. Max/min outside diameter to ensure a seal when passed through the standard gland: 9.5mm-5mm. The cable section must be circular to ensure a seal.
The recommended cable and cable glands must be
used for the IP66 (NEMA 4X) version of this pump;
otherwise ingress protection may be jeopardised.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
56
For EMC protection, shielded control cable should be used. The shielding should be
terminated to one of the pcb mounting screws or to the adjacent spade connection
(where fitted).
For improved EMC protection in extremely noisy environments, shielded cable may
be used in conjunction with watertight EMC metal cable glands. These must be
earthed to the module by adding an M16x1.5 nut with serrated edges to ensure
proper contact with the inside of the module. It is necessary to remove the module’s
circuit board to access the interior of the module: it is held in place by two fixing
screws which can be removed and replaced with a cross-point screwdriver. Take normal anti-static precautions when handling printed circuit boards.
Suitable cables for general-purpose use: 300V with extra premium grade PVC jacket with good flame and moisture resistance.
Suitable cables for industrial use: 300V extra-rugged polyurethane grade jacket with
resistance to oils, fuels, solvents and water.
For convenience of wiring more than 8 conductors per cable may be awkward to
handle. Only two appear in the illustrations here, for clarity.
Use a 19mm spanner to unscrew the sealing plug. Discard the nylon sealing
washer.
Screw in one of the supplied M16x1.5 cable glands in place of the plug, using
the new nylon sealing washer supplied. Tighten the gland to 2.5Nm to ensure a
seal, using a 21mm spanner. If a different gland is used, it must be watertight
to IP66.
Loosen the gland cap (do not remove it) and pass the cable in through the
gland. When it has passed through the gland, continue to push the cable
through.
The inside of the module is shaped to guide the cable past the printed circuit
board inside. Continued pushing will feed in enough cable to grip inside the
module with the fingers.
Pull through sufficient cable to reach the connectors required. Leave a little
slack.
Strip the outer sheath as necessary and remove 5mm of insulation from the
conductors. No tinning or ferrule is required. Note: If very stiff or large-diameter cable is used, it may be convenient to strip the outer sheath before passing
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
57
the cable’s conductors through the gland. However, to ensure a seal, cable with
an undamaged sheath must be present within the gland when it is tightened.
Twist a suitable length of the cable screen. Loosen one of the pcb retaining
screws and wind the shielding round it. Secure the screen by refastening the
screw. Alternatively, secure the cable screen to the adjacent spade connection
(where fitted).
Push the bared conductor into the square hole in the connector. When the conductor is fully in, tighten the retaining screw to hold it in place.
When all conductors are in position, use a 21mm spanner to tighten the gland
cap to 2.5Nm to ensure a seal. Alternatively, tighten the gland by hand until it
is finger-tight and use a spanner to tighten it further by one-half a turn.
Do not strap the control and mains power cables together.

22.3 Speed: analogue input
It is possible to control the speed of the pump remotely by
one of these methods: a voltage analogue signal within the
ranges 0-10V or 1-5V; or a current analogue signal within
the range 4-20mA; or a remote potentiometer using the 10V
supply at J7.
The analogue process signal must be applied to the i/p terminal of the Analogue 1 connector (J5). Ground to the 0V
terminal of the same connector. The pump will provide an
increasing flow rate for a rising control signal (non-inverted
response) or an increasing flow rate for a falling control signal (inverted response). See 18.2 Analogue.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
59
4-20mA circuit impedance: 250Ω.
For voltage modes, a stable, reliable voltage source can be used with a DC voltmeter.
Circuit impedance: 22kΩ.
Inverting the response is set up in software. Do not invert the polarity of the terminals.
A remote potentiometer with a
nominal value of between 1k and
2k with a minimum of 0.25W
should be wired between the
terminals of the Rem-pot connector (J7) and the i/p terminal of
the Analogue 1 connector (J5).
When using a remote potentiometer, do not apply a voltage
or current control input signal at the same time. The speed
control signal will require calibration relative to the minimum
and maximum settings of the potentiometer. This is done in
software. See 18.1 Trim in the Setup section.
When using a remote potentiometer, it is important to set the analogue input to voltage in the Setup menu. Otherwise the reference voltage supply from the Rem-pot
connector will be overloaded and will not provide a full 5V or 10V.
22.4 Scaling: analogue input
It is possible to scale the speed of the pump remotely by one
of these methods: a voltage analogue signal within the
ranges 0-10V or 1-5V; or a current analogue signal within
the range 4-20mA; or a remote potentiometer using the 10V
supply at J7.
The analogue process signal must be applied to the i/p terminal of the Analogue 2 connector (J8). Ground to the 0V
terminal of the same connector.
4-20mA circuit impedance: 250Ω.
For voltage modes, a stable, reliable voltage source can be used with a DC voltmeter.
Circuit impedance: 22kΩ.
Inverting the response is set up in software. Do not invert the polarity of the
terminals.
A remote potentiometer with a
nominal value of between 1k and
2k with a minimum of 0.25W
should be wired between the terminals of the Rem-pot connector
(J7) and the i/p terminal of the
Analogue 2 connector (J8). When
using a remote potentiometer, do not apply a voltage or current control input signal at the same time. The scaling control signal will require calibration relative to the minimum
and maximum settings of the potentiometer. This is done in
software - see 18.1 Trim in the Setup section.
When using a remote potentiometer, it is important to set the analogue input to volt-

age in the Setup menu. Otherwise the reference voltage supply from the Rem-pot
connector will be overloaded and will not provide a full 5V or 10V.
The speed of the pump as set by Analogue 1 is scaled in proportion to the signal
from Analogue 2 according to the formula y=as, where a is the speed set by
Analogue 1, s is the scaling set by Analogue 2 (0V or 4mA = 0, increasing linearly
to 10V or 20mA = 1), and y is the scaled rotation speed. If Analogue 2 has been set
for an inverted response, the reverse is true. See 18.2 Analogue in the Setup menu.
22.5 Speed: analogue output
An analogue voltage output signal is available on
the Tacho output connector (J11), between the V
terminal and the 0V terminal. The voltage is directly proportional to the pumphead rotation speed.
0V = zero speed; 10V = maximum allowed speed.
A current analogue signal within the range 420mA is available between the mA terminal and
the 0V terminal. The current is fixed and directly
proportional to the pumphead rotation speed. 4mA
= zero speed; 20mA = maximum allowed speed.
Note: If the mA output is to be used for reading
from a multimeter, a 250Ω resistor is required in series.
22.6 Tachometer frequency output
A tachometer frequency output is available on the Tacho output connector (J11),
between the freq terminal and the 0V terminal. It provides a +5V square wave
pulse, maximum 0.5mA, the frequency of which is directly proportional to pumphead
rotation speed. It provides 5.578 Hz/rpm - 334 pulses per output shaft revolution.
The pulse train from the pump can be used to calculate the speed of rotation or to
determine the number of pumphead revolutions. This output has the required
strength to be effective up to 3m from the pump. Longer cable runs require signal
amplification.

Important: general instructions for remote control inputs
All remote control inputs can be wired in two ways:
Logic
A logic voltage between 5V TTL and 24V industrial logic may be wired
to the input. The pump is configured to operate without modification
anywhere in this range. Any of the 0V terminals - though preferably
the 0V terminal associated with the desired input - is connected to the
control device’s 0V to make the circuit. Low is equivalent to 0V. High
is equivalent to 5V→24V.
Switch
A remote switch may be connected between the input and any positive voltage supply from the pump - though preferably the associated
supply terminal. Do not use the 10V supply from the Rem-pot connector, however.
22.7 Run/stop input
Remote run/stop: connect a remote switch between the
i/p terminal and the +5V terminal of the Run/stop i/p
connector (J4). Alternatively a logic input may be applied
to the i/p terminal, ground to the 0V terminal. High input
stops the pump, low input runs the pump. With no connection or with the switch open, the pump will default to running. To change or set the sense of the run/stop input, see
18.11 Remote stop in the Setup menu.
22.8 Direction input
To enable remote direction control and disable the DIRECTION (SHIFT, 1) key on
the keypad, link the terminals of the Direction enable link connector (J6).
Important: Apply no voltage whatever to the Direction enable link. Connect
a remote switch between the +5V terminal and the i/p terminal of the Direction i/p
connector (J2). Open switch for clockwise rotation, closed switch for counter-clockwise rotation. Alternatively a logic signal may be applied to the i/p terminal and the
0V terminal of the Direction i/p connector (J2). Low input for clockwise rotation,
high input for counter-clockwise rotation. With no connection the pump defaults to
clockwise rotation.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
62
22.9 Auto / manual toggle input
Connect a remote switch between the +5V terminal and the
i/p terminal of the Auto-man i/p connector (J1). Closed
switch for automatic control; open switch for manual control.
Alternatively a logic input may be applied to the i/p
terminal of the Auto-man i/p connector, ground to the 0V
terminal. High input for automatic control; low input for
manual control.
22.10 MemoDose input
Connect a momentary contact switch such as a footswitch
or a handswitch between the 5V terminal and the i/p terminal of the Dose i/p connector (J3). Close the switch to
begin a dose. This input is software-debounced and functions in a similar way to the other remote inputs, such as
with 5V to 24V logic as shown above, using the i/p terminal and the 0V terminal. Note: This input is softwaredebounced, so the signal can be either momentary or
maintained during the dose. If maintained, the signal
must be removed before the next dose.
22.11 Leak detection input
Connect a remote leak-detection device between the
+12V terminal and the i/p terminal on the Tube monitor
connector (J9). Closed circuit indicates a leak.
Alternatively a logic input may be applied to the i/p terminal, ground to the 0V terminal. High input indicates a
leak. Connect the cable of a Watson-Marlow Tube monitor
leak detector as follows:

23 Automatic control wiring
without the 620N module
Interfacing the pump with other devices is by means of three D-connectors at the
rear of the pump. There are two 25-way D-connectors. The top one is male, the
bottom one is female. Mating female and male connectors, screened for EMC compatibility, must be conventionally soldered to screened control cables.
Recommended control cable: 7 strands 0.2mm, 24AWG, screened, circular, up to
25-core. The cable screen should be earthed either through the functional earth
pin on the D-connector (pin 1 on the upper (male) 25-way D-connector) (pin 13
on the lower (female) 25-way D-connector), or through the metalwork of the socket or plug.
This pump passes all EMC compatibility requirements with up to 25m (82ft) of the
cable type specified above. Beyond this distance it is the user’s responsibility to
ensure the pump’s safe and reliable operation under remote and automatic control.
Do not strap the control and mains power cables together.
The 0V lines on this pump are mains transformer-isolated from ground (floating
ground). It can be connected to isolated 0V or grounded 0V interfaces. The TTL
(transistor transistor logic) outputs 1 and 2 used here are composed of two states:
nominally 0V and 5V; but in practice <0.4V (<16mA) and 2.4-5V (<0.4mA). They
are not suitable for driving relays. If a relay is to be driven by the TTL signal, it must
be done as described under Logic output 1-4, below.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual

RS232 control
RS232 network control is available via a 9-pin D-connector wired as below.
RS232 is the mode which allows the pump to be controlled by computers and process
controllers. It can control every function of the pump, and pass data back to the controller for closed loop operation. Up to 16 pumps can be individually controlled.
Recommended control cable: 7 strands 0.2mm, 24AWG, screened, circular, up to 4core. The cable screen should be earthed through the metalwork of the shell.
This pump passes all EMC compatibility requirements with up to 3m (10ft) of the
cable type specified above. Beyond this distance it is the user’s responsibility to
ensure the pump’s safe and reliable operation under remote and automatic control.
The 0V lines on this pump are mains transformer-isolated from ground (floating
ground).
Basic RS232 cabling
A pc can control one pump using
RS232 network cable 059.3121.000;
or more than one pump using additional RS232
network extension cables 059.3122.000, up to a
maximum of 16 pumps. If a connection must be made
to a pc fitted with a 25-pin serial outlet, use RS232 network adaptor 059.3123.000,
shown, dotted, left, instead of 059.3121.000.

23.1 Speed: analogue input 1
It is possible to control the speed of the pump remotely by one of these methods:
a voltage analogue signal within the ranges 0-10V or 1-5V; or a current analogue
signal within the range 4-20mA; or a remote potentiometer.
The analogue process signal must be applied to pin 4 of the lower D-connector. 0V
to pin 16. The pump will provide an increasing flow rate for a rising control signal
(non-inverted response) or an increasing flow rate for a falling control signal (inverted response). See 18.2 Analogue in the Setup menu.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
68
4-20mA circuit impedance: 250Ω.
For voltage modes, a stable, reliable voltage source can be used with a DC voltmeter.
Circuit impedance: 22kΩ.
Inverting the response is set up in software. Do not invert the polarity of the pins.
A remote potentiometer with a nominal value of between 1k and 2k with a minimum
of 0.25W should be wired as shown. When using a remote potentiometer, do not
apply a voltage or current control input signal at the same time. The speed control
signal will require calibration relative to the minimum and maximum settings of the
potentiometer. This is done in software - see 18.1 Trim in the Setup section.
When using a remote potentiometer, it is important to set the analogue input to voltage in the Setup menu. Otherwise the reference voltage supply from pin 21 will be
overloaded and will not provide a full 5V or 10V.
23.2 Scaling: analogue input 2
It is possible to scale the speed of the pump remotely by one of these methods: a
voltage analogue signal within the ranges 0-10V or 1-5V; or a current analogue signal within the range 4-20mA; or a remote potentiometer.
The analogue scaling signal must be applied to pin 22 of the lower D-connector. 0V
to pin 20. The speed of the pump as set by Analogue 1 is scaled in proportion to the
signal from Analogue 2 according to the formula y=as, where a is the speed set by
Analogue 1, s is the scaling set by Analogue 2 (0V or 4mA = 0, increasing linearly
to 10V or 20mA = 1), and y is the scaled rotation speed. If Analogue 2 has been set
for an inverted response, the reverse is true. See 18.2 Analogue in the Setup menu.
4-20mA circuit impedance: 250Ω.

23.3 Speed: analogue output
An analogue output signal is available as a 0V-10V signal on pin 2 of the lower Dconnector. Ground to pin 15. The voltage is fixed and directly proportional to the
pumphead rotation speed. 0V = zero speed; 10V = maximum speed.
An analogue output signal is available as a 4-20mA signal on pin 12 of the lower Dconnector, requiring a 250Ω resister in series. Ground to pin 20. The current is fixed
and directly proportional to the pumphead rotation speed. 4mA = zero speed; 20mA
= maximum speed.
23.4 Tachometer frequency output
A tachometer frequency output is available on pin 1 of the lower D-connector.
Ground to pin 14. It provides a +5V square wave pulse, maximum 0.5mA, the frequency of which is directly proportional to pumphead rotation speed. It provides
5.578 Hz/rpm - 334 pulses per output shaft revolution. The pulse train from the
pump can be used to calculate the speed of rotation or to determine the number of
pumphead revolutions. This output has the required strength to be effective up to
3m from the pump. Longer cable runs require signal amplification.

Important: general instructions for remote control inputs
All remote control inputs can be wired in two ways:
Logic
A logic voltage between 5V TTL and 24V industrial logic may be wired
to the input pin. The pump is configured to operate without modification anywhere in this range. Any of the 0V pins is connected to the
control device’s 0V to make the circuit. One 0V pin is identified in the
wiring diagram, but any may be used. Low is equivalent to 0V. High
is equivalent to 5V→24V.
Switch
A remote switch may be connected between the input pin and any
positive voltage supply from the pump. One 5V supply pin is identified
in the wiring diagram but there are several which will do, either 5V or
other positive voltage. However, do not use pin 21 on the lower Dconnector or pin 20 on the upper D-connector.
23.5 Run/stop input
Remote run/stop: connect a remote switch between pins 7 and 19 of the lower Dconnector. Alternatively a logic input may be applied to pin 7 of the lower D-connector, ground to pin 18. High input stops the pump, low input runs the pump. With no
connection or with the switch open, the pump will default to running. To change or
set the sense of the run/stop input, see 18.11 Remote stop in the Setup menu.
23.6 Direction input
To enable remote direction control and disable the DIRECTION (SHIFT, 1) key on
the keypad, link pins 6 and 18 of the lower D-connector. Connect a remote switch
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
71
between pins 5 and 19 of the lower D-connector. Open switch for clockwise rotation,
closed switch for counter-clockwise rotation. Alternatively a logic signal may be
applied to pin 5 of the lower D-connector, ground to pin 17. Low input for clockwise
rotation, high input for counter-clockwise rotation. With no connection the pump
defaults to clockwise rotation.
23.7 Auto / manual toggle input
Connect a remote switch between pins 3 and 18 of the upper D-connector. Closed
switch for automatic control; open switch for manual control. Alternatively a logic
input may be applied to pin 3 of the upper D-connector, ground to pin 16. High input
for automatic control; low input for manual control.
23.8 MemoDose input
Connect a momentary contact switch such as a footswitch or a handswitch between
pins 8 and 9 of the lower D-connector. Close the switch to begin a dose. This input
is software-debounced and functions in a similar way to the other remote inputs,
such as with 5V to 24V logic as shown above, using pin 8 as the input and pin 20 as
the 0V (lower D-connector). Note: This input is software-debounced, so the signal
can be either momentary or maintained during the dose. If maintained, the signal
must be removed before the next dose.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
72
23.9 Leak detection input
Connect a remote leak-detection device between pins 2 and 18 of the upper D-connector. Closed circuit indicates a leak. Alternatively a logic input may be applied to
pin 2 of the upper D-connector, ground to pin 15. High input indicates a leak.
Connect a Watson-Marlow leak detector in the same way, drawing 12V to power it
from pin 21 of the upper D-connector.

23.10 Pump status outputs
Important: pump status outputs
All four outputs can be configured in software to output a range of
parameters: see 18.10 Outputs under Setup.
Outputs 1 and 2 are available simultaneously from the upper and
lower D-connectors. The outputs from the lower D-connector operate
at 5V TTL only.
All four outputs available from the upper D-connector are open-collector.
By applying a positive voltage to a maximum of 24V to pin 22 of the
upper D-connector, all the outputs from this plug are at that voltage:
pin 22 is commoned with pins 23, 24 and 25. Care must be taken to
ensure that the supply voltage has sufficient capability to drive all the
loads applied to all outputs used. Important: The total load of the
four logic outputs must not exceed 50mA.
23.10.1 Logic output 1
Output 1 is taken from pin 10 of the upper D-connector, depending on the logic state
of the function assigned to Output 1. Alternatively, a load such as a relay coil may
be connected to pin 10, ground to pin 17. Current will flow through the circuit
depending on the logic state of the function assigned to Output 1. Do not connect
to any device requiring more than 50mA.
Additionally, output 1 is available as a 5V TTL logic signal on pin 10 of the lower Dconnector. It will change state corresponding to the logic state of the function
assigned to Output 1. Do not connect to any device requiring more than 1 TTL load.
By default, output 1 is configured to indicate Run/Stop status. See 12 Switching the
pump on for the first time.

choose and press ENTER to confirm.
Selecting Manual returns the user to the manual mode main screen. See 14
Manual operation.
Selecting Network puts the pump into network (RS232 or RS485) mode.
See 25 Network control and operation.
Selecting Analogue puts the pump into analogue mode. It responds to the
analogue signal as soon as this is done and shows the “AUTO” icon.
The pump is automatically switched into auto-restart mode and displays the !
icon. The only keys active are STOP, MAN (SHIFT, 6), DIRECTION (SHIFT,
1) and START (available only as an extended keypress to toggle keypad lock).
UP and DOWN keys are available if manual scaling has been set (see below).
If the remote direction input is active and the direction-enable link is applied,
the DIRECTION (SHIFT, 1) key is disabled. If keypad lock is set, only STOP
and START (available as an extended keypress to toggle keypad lock) are
active.
The pump displays whichever of six auto running screens is appropriate according to the previously selected auto mode - 4-20mA, 1-5V or 0-10V with or
without scaling in place.
The auto running screens display four pieces of information: the speed at which
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
78
the pump rotates after receiving a low signal on Analogue 1 (4mA, 1V or 0V);
the speed at which the pump rotates after receiving a high signal on Analogue
1 (20mA, 5V or 10V); the set speed (that is: the speed at which the pump is
currently rotating according to the analogue speed signal and the analogue
scaling signal if scaling is set); and the flowrate in the units selected (see 18.8
Flow units). The scaling percentage is also displayed if it is set.
If manual scaling is enabled using the Setup menu (see 18.2 Analogue), the
scaling percentage can be adjusted between 0% and 100% using the UP and
DOWN keys.
The pump responds to remote digital inputs. If the run/stop input stops the
pump, the bottom line of the auto running screen shows “Remote stop”. When
it starts the pump again, this will disappear and the pump returns to normal
running mode.
If the pump is stopped because a leak is detected, the screen displays “LEAK
DETECTED. Check and reset, then press Stop”. See 26.1 Error codes.
The remote status outputs operate fully.
How to get out of auto operation
If you entered auto operation by pressing AUTO (SHIFT, 9) and selecting
Analogue, return to manual operation by pressing MAN (SHIFT, 6).
If you entered auto operation by making the remote auto / manual input go

29 620RE MarkII, 620RE4 MarkII
and 620R MarkII pumpheads
Note: MarkII pumpheads differ from MarkI pumpheads as follows: they have a new
guard-switching arrangement which is not compatible with 623/624 drives.
Similarly, older guards are incompatible with 620 drives. Elsewhere in this manual,
the term “MarkII” is omitted.
29.1 620RE, 620RE4 and 620R key safety
information
Before opening the pumphead guard please
ensure that the following safety directions are
followed.
Ensure that the pump is isolated from mains voltage.
Ensure that there is no pressure in the pipeline.
If a tube failure has occurred, ensure that any product in the pumphead has
been allowed to drain through the controlled waste to a suitable drain.
Ensure that protective clothing and eye protection are worn if hazardous products are being pumped.
29.2 620RE, 620RE4 and 620R
safe-guarding
Primary safety on 620 series pumps is provided by the tool-lockable pumphead
guard. Secondary (backup) protection is provided in the form of an electrical
guard switch which stops the pump if the pumphead guard is opened. The
electrical guard switch on cased pumps should never be used as primary
protection. Always disconnect the mains power supply to the pump before
opening the pumphead guard.

29.3 620RE, 620RE4 and 620R
pumping conditions
Pressure and viscosity
All pressure values in this operating instruction, from which performance and
life figures have been calculated, relate to peak pipeline pressures.
Although rated to 4 bar peak pressure, this pump will generate in excess of 4
bar peak pressure if pipeline restrictions are in place. In instances where it is
critical that a peak pressure of 4 bar is not exceeded, pressure relief valves
should be installed in the pipeline.
For pumping duties of 2-4 bar pressure, fit hard Marprene/Bioprene or standard
Sta-Pure or Chem-Sure tube elements. “M” or P” in the tube element’s product
order code denotes suitability for higher pressure use.
For pumping duties of 0-2 bar pressure, use standard hardness elements or the
standard range of continuous peristaltic pump tubing.
Viscosity handling is maximised by using hard Marprene/Bioprene or Sta-Pure
tube elements in the pumphead.
Ensure that there is always a minimum of one metre of smooth bore flexible
tubing connected to the discharge port of the pumphead. This will help
minimise any impulse losses and pulsation in the pipeline. This is especially
important with viscous fluids and rigid pipework.
29.4 620RE, 620RE4 and 620R
pump installation
A correctly engineered installation will promote the best possible tube life, so please
ensure that the following guidelines are followed:
Avoid tight pipeline bends, pipe reducers and excessive lengths of smaller bore
tubing than that in the pumphead, particularly in pipelines on the suction side.
Ensure that connecting pipe work and fittings are suitably rated to handle the
predicted pipeline pressure.
If rigid pipe work comes in close proximity to the pumphead, a drop-out section
of pipe work will simplify tube replacement.
Ensure that the controlled waste blanking plug is in position if the controlled
waste port is not in use. See below.
It is advisable to use controlled waste pipe work if pumping hazardous, aggressive or abrasive fluids or products which will harden in contact with air.
Connect waste pipe work to the waste port using the coupling adaptor supplied.
Push out the blanking plug. Drop the threaded waste fitting into place. Secure
it with the supplied locking nut. Fully tighten by hand. Ensure that there is adequate clearance underneath the pumphead. Waste pipe work should run to a
suitable container or drain.
The leak detector installation procedure is included in the leak detector kit.
If unsure of an installation please contact your local Technical Support Office.

29.5 620RE, 620RE4 and 620R
general operation
Always isolate the pump from the mains power
supply before opening the guard or performing
any positioning, removal or maintenance.
Opening the pumphead guard
Unlock the guard with the 5mm Allen key provided (or a screwdriver).
Open the guard to its full extent. This creates the maximum clearance between
the tube ports and guard to remove the tubing.
Engaging/disengaging the rollers
The extent of travel of the roller release levers is clear from pictures 2 and 3
above. Do not try and force the levers beyond their normal extent of travel as
this will damage the rotor.
To engage the rollers snap the roller release levers counter-clockwise making
sure that the rollers lock out against the tubing. To disengage the rollers, snap
the release levers clockwise to their disengaged position. For high pressure tubing elements or four roller pumpheads, a 5mm Allen key can be used to aid
leverage when engaging/disengaging the rollers with the release levers.
Make sure that fingers are clear of the rollers
and the front face of the rotor hub when using
the roller release levers.
Pre-load checks
Before loading tubing, ensure that all rollers rotate freely, that the tube ports
and location grooves are clean and that if in use, the controlled waste pipe
work is free of any obstructions.
Closing the pumphead guard and start-up
Ensure that the guard seal is clean, replacing it if necessary.
Ensure that the rollers are engaged and locked out against the tubing
Close the guard and push it against the track until the latch engages.
Connect suitable pipe work to the pumphead using the appropriate connectors
for the tube element. See below.

29.6 620RE and 620RE4
tube element loading
Always isolate the pump from the mains power
supply before opening the guard or performing
any positioning, removal or maintenance.
620RE element pumpheads are factory set to accept Watson-Marlow LoadSure tube
elements. Pumping performance will be adversely affected if LoadSure elements are
not used.
Open the guard using a suitable screwdriver or a 5mm Allen key. Disengage the
rollers.
Locate one of the “D”-shaped flanges into the lower port. (The “D” flange
ensures that the element can only be loaded correctly).
Wrap the tube element around the disengaged rollers of the rotor.
Locate the second “D”-shaped flange into the upper port.
Ensure the flat face of each “D” flange sits flush to the flange sealing face of
the track.
Engage the rollers.
Close the guard and push it against the track until the latch engages.
Connecting LoadSure elements to supply and discharge tubes
LoadSure sanitary elements - which have white connectors - are connected to a tubing system using Tri-clamps and EPDM gaskets.
Hold the connector end of the supply or discharge tube against the element
connector, with an EPDM gasket between them.
Use a Tri-clamp to engage both flanges squarely, close it and tighten.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual

LoadSure industrial elements - which have black connectors - are connected to a
tubing system using cam-lock (cam and groove) fittings.
Push the female fitting over the element connector.
Pull both cam levers closed until they engage.
29.7 620R continuous tube loading
Always isolate the pump from the mains power
supply before opening the guard or performing
any positioning, removal or maintenance.
620R continuous tubing pumpheads are factory set to accept Watson-Marlow
600 series 3.2mm wall tubing. Pumping performance will be adversely affected
if Watson-Marlow tubing is not used.
Select the tube clamp set which is correct for the tubing size to be used.
Locate the two “U”-shaped track clamp halves into the pumphead ports (The
“U”- shape ensures correct loading).
Locate the corresponding guard clamp halves which have raised “T” locating
sections, into the slots on the inner guard face above and below the guard
hinge. Push and slide into their locked position.
Closing the guard will align the two halves of the clamp around the tubing.
Disengage the rollers.
Locate one end of the tubing into the lower port “U” clamp and hold firmly in
position.
Wrap the tubing tightly around the retracted rollers, making sure that there is
no twisting through its length.
Locate the other end of the tubing into the upper port “U” clamp.
Hold both ends of the tubing in one hand maintaining tension around the
retracted rollers.
Engage the rollers.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
90
Close the guard and push it against the track until the latch engages.
Ensure that continuous tubing is not loosely clamped at the pumphead ports.
Ensure that when the pump is re-started all of the rollers have re-engaged. A
roller which has not re-engaged will “click” continuously. No damage will occur
if this happens but the roller should be re-engaged manually using the 5mm
Allen key. See 26 Troubleshooting.
29.8 620RE, 620RE4 and 620R
tube element or continuous tube removal
Always isolate the pump from the mains power
supply before opening the guard or performing
any positioning, removal or maintenance.
Unlock the guard and disengage the rollers.
Disconnect the tubing from the external pipeline.
Remove the tubing from the pumphead.
29.9 620RE, 620RE4 and 620R
maintenance
Scheduled maintenance
The stainless steel pumping rollers run on sealed bearings and do not require
lubrication.
Remove the rotor and lubricate the follower rollers and roller engaging mechanisms with a lithium-based grease. This should be carried out every six months
for intermittent duties and every three months for 24 hour duties.
If fluid is spilled inside the pumphead, flush the pumphead out with water and
mild detergent as soon as possible. If specific cleaning agents are required to
clean the spillage, please consult Watson-Marlow Technical Support Office
before proceeding, in order to confirm chemical compatibility.
If the rotor needs to be removed, refer to the guidelines below.
Roller adjustment
620 pumpheads have provision for adjustment to reset the roller/track gap to compensate for wear after extended service in arduous applications.
Roller/track gaps can only be accurately judged without tubing in the pumphead.
The gap should be 4.6mm for 3.2mm wall tubing and 5.5mm for LoadSure elements.
If the gap is more than 0.2mm greater than these dimensions, the following may be
carried out:
Note the number on the roller arm to which the engraved line on the hexagonheaded main roller pin corresponds.
Remove the circlip (snap-ring) and roller pin.
Relocate the main roller pin, resetting the engraved line to one number lower.
For example, if the engraved line was at “-1”, reset it to “-2” to reduce the
roller/track gap.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
91
Ensure the roller pin is correctly seated into the roller arm thrust washer.
Replace the circlip.
Rotor removal
Remove the rotor cover by hand and the central locating bolt using a 5mm
Allen key. Pull the rotor off the keyed shaft. Do not use tools to lever the rear
face of the rotor away from the inner face of the track: it should come off by
hand.
Track removal
Remove the rotor as described above.
Disconnect the waste pipework (if attached).
Loosen the two track retaining screws using a suitable screwdriver.
Withdraw the track fully from the gearbox.
After removing the rotor and track, it is advisable to remove the metal key
from the keyway, clean and reassamble. The key fits its keyway tightly. It may
be freed by tapping gently with a screwdriver or other suitable tool.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
92
Track re-location
Ensure that the track is clean.
Align the track so that the location holes are
aligned with the threaded holes in the cased drive.
Tighten the two track retaining screws using a
suitable screwdriver.
Re-connect the waste pipework (if required).
Note: The track can be fitted in two positions: with ports to the right or with ports
down. The ports-down position requires that the pump is positioned at the front of
the surface it stands on to provide clearance for the supply and discharge tubes.
Rotor re-location
Before replacing the rotor, locate the key into the driveshaft keyway and apply
a thin layer of grease over the shaft and key. The rotor keyway is the largest of
the four slots radiating from the driveshaft socket: the top one in the first picture, above. Align the rotor keyway with the shaft key and slide the rotor into
position, ensuring that a positive “stop” is achieved and ensure that the full
length of the drive shaft is fitted into the rotor.
Do not force the rotor into position. The rotor will slide into place easily if correctly aligned.
Secure the rotor with the hexagonal locating bolt (complete with washer) to a
nominal torque of 10Nm using a 5mm Allen key.
The rotor bolt, which is impregnated with “Loctite 218” thread lock, should be
subjected to a maximum of three removals/relocations before renewal. To avoid
rotor bolt renewal after three removals, apply “Loctite 222” thread lock to the
rotor thread before relocation. This is critical to ensure prolonged, secure location of the rotor hub to the drive shaft. Failure to complete this action will
invalidate the terms and conditions of the warranty.
Replace the rotor cover.
When closing the guard, check it does not make contact with the rotor. If it does,
the rotor has been fitted incorrectly. Re-open the guard, remove and refit the rotor,
and close the guard.

performance data
Pumping conditions
All performance figures in this operating instruction have been recorded against
peak pipeline pressures.
This pump is rated to 4 bar (58psi) peak pressure when fitted with a 620RE, 620RE4
or 620LG pumphead using high-pressure tubing. However, it will generate in excess
of 4 bar (58psi) peak pressure if the pipeline is restricted. Where it is important that
4 bar (58psi) is not exceeded, pressure relief valves should be installed in the
pipeline.
Viscosity handling is maximised by using 4.0mm wall LoadSure elements with the
620RE and 620RE4 pumpheads.
Flow rates are normalised test values obtained using new tubing with the pumphead
rotating clockwise pumping water at 20C with negligible inlet and discharge
pressures. Actual flow rates achieved may vary because of changes in temperature,
viscosity, inlet and discharge pressures, system configuration and tubing performance against time. Flow rates may also vary due to normal manufacturing tolerances
of the tubing. These tolerances will make flow rate variance more pronounced at
smaller bore sizes.
For precise and repeatable performance it is important to determine flow
rates under operating conditions for each new piece of tubing.
620R and 620L family pumpheads' flow rates are directly proportional to rotor
speed. If you wish to run the pump at a speed not shown in the tables below, flow
figures can be reached by dividing the maximum flow shown in the tables below by
the maximum rpm figure, and multiplying the result by your required speed in rpm.
In normal circumstances, rotor and tube life are maximised if the pumphead is run
slowly, particularly when pumping at high pressure. However, to maintain
performance at pressures above 2 bar, avoid running the pumphead below 50rpm.
If low-flow, high-pressure operation is necessary, switching to a smaller tube is
recommended.
Sta-Pure and Marprene TM tubing are hard to compress when new. When using
tubing made of these materials, the first five pumphead revolutions should be at a
speed of 10rpm or greater. If the pump is run slower, the safety system built into
pump drive’s software may cause it to stop and display an over-current error
message.
Note: Flow rates quoted have been rounded for simplicity, but are accurate to within 5% - well within the normal tubing tolerance variation of flow rate. They should
therefore be taken as a guide. Real flow rates in any application must be determined
empirically.

33 620L and 620LG pumpheads
The twin offset track design of the 620L utilises 4.0mm wall double-Y tube elements
to overcome pulsation for accurate dosing and dispensing. The 620L accepts Silicone
and Marprene tubing up to 16.0mm bore.
Alternatively the 620L will run with two separate 4mm-wall tubes although some
channel-to-channel variance and minimal pulsation may be experienced. For separate tube fitting or twin tube inlet to single tube outlet fitting tube clamping blocks
must be used. See 33.8 620L pumphead spares.
33.1 620L and 620LG
key safety information
Before opening the pumphead guard please
ensure that the following safety directions are
followed.
Ensure that the pump is isolated from mains voltage.
Ensure that there is no pressure in the pipeline.
If a tube failure has occurred, ensure that any product in the pumphead has
been allowed to drain.
Ensure that protective clothing and eye protection are worn if hazardous
products are being pumped.
33.2 620L and 620LG Guarding
Primary safety on 620 series pumps is provided by the tool-lockable pumphead
guard—in the case of the 620L and 620LG heads, the tool-lockable pumphead
track functions as the guard. Secondary (backup) protection is provided in the
form of an electrical guard switch which stops the pump if either end of the
track is opened. The electrical guard switch on cased pumps should never be
used as primary protection. Always disconnect the mains power supply to the
pump before opening the pumphead.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
102
33.3 620L and 620LG pumping conditions
Pressure and viscosity
Always isolate the pump from the mains power
supply before opening the guard or performing
any positioning, removal or maintenance.
All pressure values in this operating instruction, from which performance and
life figures have been calculated, relate to peak pipeline pressures.
Although rated to 4 bar peak pressure, the 620LG may generate in excess of 4
bar working pressure if pipeline restrictions are in place. In instances where it
is critical that a working pressure of 4 bar is not exceeded, pressure relief
valves should be installed in the pipeline.
620L
0-2 bar
Y element or continuous tubing
620LG
0-4 bar
Sta-Pure and Chem-Sure Y elements only
Ensure that there is always a minimum of one metre of smooth bore flexible
tubing connected to the discharge port of the pumphead. This will help
minimise any impulse losses and pulsation in the pipeline. This is especially
important with viscous fluids and rigid pipework.
33.4 620L and 620LG
removal and installation
A 620 pump supplied with a 620L pumphead is not intended for use with any other
pumphead. However, the pumphead can be removed for cleaning or maintenance.
Always isolate the pump from the mains power
supply before opening the guard or performing
any positioning, removal or maintenance.
Watson-Marlow 620DuN and 620Du User Manual
103
To remove the 620L pumphead
To remove the pumphead you must first remove the track. The track is secured
to the pumphead by cams positioned at its left and right. Where the cam shafts
are visible at the front of the pumphead, they are milled square to accept a
spanner. Use the 10mm or 3/8in AF spanner provided to rotate the right-hand
cam shaft through 180 degrees counter-clockwise, and the left-hand camshaft
through 180 degrees clockwise. The position of the cam rotation stops indicate
when they are fully closed (third picture, left) and open (right). Lift off the
track.
The pumphead is secured to the black adaptor plate by two M6 screws. Use a
5mm Allen key to remove them. Lift off the pumphead.
It is not normally necessary to remove the adaptor plate. However, if it must be
removed for cleaning:
The adaptor plate is secured to the drive by four M6 screws. Use a suitable
screwdriver to remove them. Lift off the adapter plate. After cleaning, reposition and secure it in the same way.
To install the 620L pumphead
Clean and grease the projecting dog of the drive shaft. Position the cleaned
pumphead so that it engages with the drive-shaft dog. Use two M6 screws to
secure the pumphead to the adaptor plate.
Reverse the directions above to reposition the track.

33.5 620L and 620LG Tube loading
Double-Y elements for low-pulsation flow and dispensing
applications
See illustrations at 33.4 620L removal and installation. The track is secured to
the pumphead by cams positioned at its left and right. Where the cam shafts
are visible at the front of the pumphead, they are milled square to accept a
spanner. Use a 10mm or 3/8in AF spanner to rotate the right-hand cam shaft
through 180 degrees counter-clockwise, and the left-hand camshaft through
180 degrees clockwise. The position of the cam rotation stops indicate when
they are fully closed (third picture, left) and open (right). Lift off the track.
Locate one end of double-Y element over one of the 625L clamping pegs.
Stretch the element over the rotor and locate the other end of the element
over the second 625L clamping peg. Replace the track as described at 33.4
620L removal and installation.
Twin inlet tubes for best handling of viscous fluids
See illustrations at 33.4 620L removal and installation. The track is secured to
the pumphead by cams positioned at its left and right. Where the cam shafts
are visible at the front of the pumphead, they are milled square to accept a
spanner. Use a 10mm or 3/8in AF spanner to rotate the right-hand cam shaft
through 180 degrees counter-clockwise, and the left-hand camshaft through
180 degrees clockwise. The position of the cam rotation stops indicate when
they are fully closed (third picture, left) and open (right). Lift off the track.
Unscrew and remove the 625L inlet clamping peg. Connect the twin inlet tubes
and outlet tube using the appropriate Y-piece connector and clips. Fit the inlet
tubes into the correct size clamping block. Locate the Y-piece end of the ele-

ment over the 625L clamping peg. Stretch the tubes and screw the clamping
block into place. Replace the track as described at 33.4 620L removal and
installation.
Two independent tubes for twin-channel pumping
See illustrations at 33.4 620L removal and installation. The track is secured to
the pumphead by cams positioned at its left and right. Where the cam shafts
are visible at the front of the pumphead, they are milled square to accept a
spanner. Use a 10mm or 3/8in AF spanner to rotate the right-hand cam shaft
through 180 degrees counter-clockwise, and the left-hand camshaft through
180 degrees clockwise. The position of the cam rotation stops indicate when
they are fully closed (third picture, left) and open (right). Lift off the track.
Unscrew and remove the 625L clamping pegs. Clamping blocks will be used to
secure the continuous tube, using the same screw sockets. Fit the two tubes
into the correct size clamping blocks. Distance between blocks = 230mm for up
to 8.0mm bore; 240mm for 12.0mm and 16.0mm bore. Fit the inlet tube
clamping block to the 625L. Stretch the tubes over the rotor and fit the second
tube clamping block to the 625L. Replace the track as described at 33.4 620L
removal and installation. When using Marprene it is important to check the tube
length after 30 minutes running time.
33.6 620L and 620LG care and
maintenance
Check all moving parts for freedom of movement occasionally. If aggressive fluids
are spilt onto the pumphead, clean using a mild detergent only.
33.7 620L and 620LG track adjustment
The track is set for 4.0mm wall tubing up to 16.0mm bore. Alteration of this setting
using the pan head screws may be necessary to optimise performance if non-standard tubing is used. However, the pump warranty will be invalidated if this is
done. The factory setting is 20.3mm vertically from the rotor side of the sprung
track to the top of the track cover.

34 620L and 620LG performance data
Sta-Pure and Marprene TM tubing are hard to compress when new. When using
tubing made of these materials, the first five pumphead revolutions should be at a
speed of 10rpm or greater. If the pump is run slower, the safety system built into
pump drive’s software may cause it to stop and display an over-current error
message.
