Mode sets the mode for the syringe pump. The options in this enum are blank, basic and programmable. Select blank if the syringe pump is not a dual syringe pump. Select basic or programmable to send commands with those modes for the Fusion 4000.
Units allows you to change the units used in the commands and responses. Diameter sets the inner diameter of the syringe.
