There must be a command to read the status of the syringe? But I'm not going to guess any more. Speculation is fruitless at this point.
I just checked the manual
Yes. You are correct. there is a command to check the pump status.
I now need to think about how to add that command to my state machine vi so that I only send the next command when status is 1. probably use wait until ...
the attached is the manual. it is mentioned on page 3-32 or page 68
So you add a "check statuts" state.
Ater sending a "start pump" or "stop pump" command go to "check status" and check the status at regular intervals until the status is 1
