% returns the maximum current of Knauer pumps connected to a valid serial
% object, as numbers.  If no pump head size is supplied, it will try and
% retrieve it, but if one is supplied, then will retrieve the maximum
% current set for that pump head size.

% if a pump head size was supplied...
if nargin >= 2
    
    % check the input

% because there are different values for this
