Preface
This installation guide describes how to upgrade the Surveyor™ LC Pump to a Surveyor LC
Pump Plus.
To increase the retention time reproducibility of the LC system, the upgraded LC pump issues
two output signals to the autosampler at the start of a run. The LC pump issues the first
output signal when it senses a stable backpressure. It issues the second output signal when its
cams return to the start position. The autosampler waits for these two signals before it
performs an injection.

Surveyor LC Pump Plus:

Safety and Special Notices
Make sure you follow the precautionary statements presented in this guide. The safety and
other special notices appear in boxes.
Safety and special notices include the following:
CAUTION Highlights hazards to humans, property, or the environment. Each CAUTION
notice is accompanied by an appropriate CAUTION symbol.
IMPORTANT Highlights information necessary to prevent damage to software, loss of
data, or invalid test results; or might contain information that is critical for optimal
performance of the system.

In addition to these items, you must also have the items listed in Table 2 on page 7 to upgrade
the communication firmware. The items listed in Table 2 are included in the Surveyor LC
Pump accessory kit.
To upgrade the Surveyor LC Pump to a Surveyor LC Pump Plus, do the following:
1. Install the new interconnect PCB by following the instructions in Chapter 2, “Installing
the Interconnect Printed Circuit Board.”
2. Download the new CPU and communication firmware by following the instructions in
Chapter 3, “Downloading Firmware.”
3. Install the service pack for your chromatography data system by following the
instructions in Chapter 4, “Upgrading the Chromatography Data System.”
4. Attach the back panel labels for the Surveyor LC Pump Plus by following the instructions
in Chapter 5, “Adding the Surveyor LC Pump Plus Labels.”
5. Configure the autosampler to recognize the output signals from the upgraded LC pump
by following the instructions in Chapter 6, “Configuring the Surveyor Plus System.”

Installing the Interconnect Printed Circuit Board
The new interconnect PCB contains the circuitry that enables the Pump RDY output signal
and the INJ HOLD output signal, generated from pins 5 and 6, respectively, on the back
panel of the LC pump. See Figure 24 on page 23.
Y To install the new PCB
1. Turn off the power to the Surveyor LC Pump by pressing the power button below the left
door of the pump, and then unplug the pump from line power.
CAUTION Because the Surveyor LC Pump contains a high voltage supply, you must
turn off the power to the pump and unplug it from line power before you pull the
chassis out of the housing.
2. Gain access to the interconnect PCB as follows:
a. Detach the LED cable from the inner right-door of the pump.
Figure 1.
Detaching the LED cable

b. Pull the drainage funnel forward off the housing of the pump. See Figure 2.
c. Use a #2 Phillips screwdriver to remove the four screws that secure the chassis of the
pump to its housing. See Figure 2.

Configuring the Surveyor Plus System
This chapter describes how to add the Surveyor LC Pump Plus to your instrument
configuration and how to configure the Surveyor Autosampler Plus to recognize the active
high input signals issued from the instrument-name.
IMPORTANT If the signal polarities for the Surveyor Autosampler Plus are not configured
correctly, the system status will remain indefinitely at “Waiting for Trigger.”
The instrument-name can be controlled from either the Xcalibur data system or the
ChromQuest data system. To configure your LC system appropriately for the
instrument-name, follow the instructions for your data system:
• Configuring the Instrument in ChromQuest
• Configuring the Instrument in Xcalibur
Configuring the Instrument in ChromQuest
To control the instrument-name from the ChromQuest data system, you must add the pump
to the instrument configuration. You must also configure the Surveyor Autosampler Plus
signal polarities to recognize the output signals from the instrument-name.
This section contains the following topics:
• Configuring the Surveyor LC Pump Plus
• Configuring the Signal Polarities for the Surveyor AS
Configuring the Surveyor LC Pump Plus
The following procedure assumes that you are adding the instrument-name to a Surveyor
instrument that already exists in the ChromQuest Enterprise. If you have not yet added an
instrument to your Enterprise, refer to your Surveyor Plus Getting Started with ChromQuest
Guide.

The Unit ID on the back panel of the pump consists of two rotary switches. Each
switch has ten positions. The arrow on the left switch points to the “tens” digit of the
Unit ID. The arrow on the right switch points to the “ones” digit of the Unit ID.
6. Click OK to close the Surveyor LC Pump dialog box.
7. Leave the Instrument Configuration view open. Go to the next procedure.
Configuring the Signal Polarities for the Surveyor AS
During an injection sequence, the instrument-name issues a pump ready signal and an
injection hold release signal to the autosampler.
After you submit a run, the Surveyor AS waits for a pump ready signal from the LC pump.
The instrument-name issues this signal after its pressure transducer monitors a stable
backpressure. When the autosampler receives this signal, it begins an injection sequence.
After the autosampler begins the injection sequence, it waits for an injection hold release
signal from the pump. The instrument-name issues this release signal when its piston cam
returns to the start position. When the autosampler receives the injection hold release signal,
it switches the injection valve to the inject position, allowing the mobile phase stream to
sweep the contents of the sample loop onto the LC column.
For the instrument-name, select the Pump ready active high check box and the Injection hold
release active high check box. See Figure 34. If you do not select these two check boxes, the
autosampler does not recognize the input signals from the instrument-name and does not
begin an injection sequence.
