Liconic LPX720

LiCONiC LPX Series
Manufacturer: LiCONiC
Model: LPX Series

The LPX740 is optimised for larger capacity applications. The LPX740 offers high capacity while maintaining the same compact footprint as the LPX220. The LPX740 is ideal for high throughput labs with space constraints. In fact, the LPX740 can be integrated in four different orientations. Left, right, back and side access is made possible by one single system.

    • slotSlot position for the microplate. Default: 1
    • levelLevel position for the microplate. Default: 1

    Returns:

    Barcode of a microplate at the specified location.
  • Service Is Plate At Location

    boolean serviceIsPlateAtLocation(int id, int slot, int level)Verifies if the microplate is present at the specified location.

    Parameters:

    • idIdentifier of the unit. Default: 1
    • slotSlot position for the microplate. Default: 1
    • levelLevel position for the microplate. Default: 1

    Returns:

    True if the microplate is present at the specified location. False if the microplate is not present at the specified location.
  • Inventory

    void inventory(int id, string fileName, boolean ppd, boolean bcr)Saves the inventory of the hotel into the specified file.

    Parameters:

    • idIdentifier of the unit. Default: 1
    • fileNameName of the file where the inventory is saved.
    • ppdTrue to use the plate present detector. False to not use the plate present detector. Default: True
    • bcrTrue to use the barcode reader. False to not use the barcode reader. Default: True
  • Service Move Plate

    void serviceMovePlate(int srcId, int srcPos, int srcSlot, int srcLevel, int transSrcSlot, int srcPlateType, int dstId, int dstPos, int dstSlot, int dstLevel, int transDstSlot, int dstPlateType)Moves a microplate from the source location to the target location. This operation allows to move the plate within the bound of one unit or between the units.

    Parameters:

    • srcIdIdentifier of the source unit. Default: 1
    • srcPosSource position for the move. 1: transfer station, 2: slot and level, 3: shovel, 4: tunnel. Minimum: 1 Maximum: 4
    • srcSlotSlot for the source location.
    • srcLevelLevel for the source location.
    • transSrcSlotTransport slot for the source unit when a plate is moved between different units. It is even for extended unit and odd for base unit.
    • srcPlateTypeType of the microplate present at the source location. 0: MTP, 1: DWP, 3: P28
    • dstIdIdentifier of the destination unit. Default: 1
    • dstPosDestination position for the move. 1: transfer station, 2: slot and level, 3: shovel, 4: tunnel. Minimum: 1 Maximum: 4
    • dstSlotSlot for the destination location.
    • dstLevelLevel for the destination location.
    • transDstSlotTransport slot for the destination unit when a plate is moved between different units. It is even for extended unit and odd for base unit.
    • dstPlateTypeType of the microplate present at the destination location. 0: MTP, 1: DWP, 3: P28
  • Transfer Station Position

    void transferStationPosition(int id, int position)Rotates the transfer station.

    Parameters:

    • idIdentifier of the unit. Default: 1
    • positionSpecifies an angle of rotation: 0 – 0 degrees, 1 – 90 degrees, 2 – 180 degrees. Default: 0
