3.5.5 Waste container
User manual for NERO / NERO INSTANT
The liquid waste container is situated in the lower left part of the machine. You must drop the float into
this container. The given float acts as the sensor indicating the container’s level of filling.
Except for the liquid waste, which is produced during the preparation of drinks, the process of making
coffee from coffee beans, we also have hard waste in the shape of pressed ground coffee, which the espresso group throws out into the waste container, situated in the lower left side of the machine. The quantity of waste is monitored programmatically.
When the quantity of drinks made of ground coffee reaches 150, such drinks are taken offline and are
no more available. To reset the waste counter, you must remove the container from the working machine
for at least 10 seconds, remove the waste and replace the empty container into the machine.
3.5.6 Autonomous operations kit
In its standard configuration the vending machine is configured to use water from the canister/bottle,
which is installed near the machine.
For water supply connection we have a silicone water pipe, which comes with the package (see figure
4 position 5), which from one end is connected to water inlet 2 (see figure 8) and from the other end of the
tube is immersed into the source of water (canister/bottle).
3.5.7 Connecting the vending machine to water supply mains (optional)
The vending machines can also be connected directly to the water supply mains, taking into consideration the applicable laws of the country of use. The inlet nozzle for connection to the water supply mains
is situated on the rear panel of the vending machine (see figure 8 position 1) and comprises of a threaded
connector of diameter ¾”. The machine is connected using a pipe, which can handle the pressure of the
water supply and which is suitable for use with food products (minimum inner diameter of 6mm).
The water pressure in the supply line must be in the range of 0.05 to 0.85 MPa (0.5 – 8.5 bar). Before connecting the vending machine to the water supply mains:
• Set the switch on the switch board of the machine to position “O” / “OFF”;
• Unplug the machine by removing the plug from the power socket;

а. Flot chamber
The float chamber (see figures 50 and 51) retains the minimum required
quantity of water, which is necessary to keep the hydraulic system alive and to
ensure the dispensing of drinks, in case the water supply runs dry.
Equipped with a sensor it determines the state of the chamber: filled or empty. During the functioning of the internal pump, the water level gradually falls
inside the float chamber until reaching the set level, where the sensor reads
as if the chamber is empty. At this moment the water from external source (the
valve is opened) or internal source (the autonomous mode pump turns ON)
starts filling the float chamber, until the water level sensor determines that the
chamber was full. This also forms a permanent water lock. In case of shut down
of external water supply or depletion of water in the internal source, the float
chamber will not be filled within the set time interval, which will cause the vending machine to be blocked.

3.5.9 Coffee grinder and dosing apparatus (for NERO)
The coffee beans are crushed using the coffee grinder, which is located underneath the coffee bean
container. When you select a drink, which uses coffee beans, the beans fall into the coffee grinder, where
they are ground using the built-in choppers, going further into the dosing apparatus, which is located in
front of the coffee grinder. From here the coffee is fed into the espresso group.
The quality of grinding of coffee depends on the rotation of the
screw, located on the coffee grinder (see figures 22 and 23 position1). Turn the screw clockwise grind more (smaller particles) or
counter clockwise to grind less (larger particles) – (see figure 22).
You can set the rotation of the coffee grinder to achieve the required level of grinding.
After setting the grinding quality, check the quality of coffee. If
needed please set again to achieve the required level of grinding.
NOTE: the smaller the particle size the longer will be the extract
and the drink will be more saturated.
Setting the grinding parameters for the first time:
Turn the regulatory screw clockwise and bring the blades as
close as possible (turn all the way).
Then turning the screw counter clockwise loosen the upper disk by
540-630 degrees (one and a half turn or one and a half + quarter
turn).
For more detailed settings of coffee grinder you can carry out
the following actions I the given sequence: change the position of
the regulatory screw (to change the position of the upper disk of the
coffee grinder to a certain angle) and then make a drink and taste it.
PLEASE NOTE THAT CHANGES IN LEVEL OF GRINDING
AND TASTE ARE NOT NOTICED RIGHT AWAY. ONLY AFTER 3
CYCLES YOU CAN FEEL THE DIFFERENCE (after changing the
grinding parameters, discard two drinks and taste the third one to
feel the difference).
It is highly recommended to change grinding parameters discreetly, turning the coffee grinder’s disk by 10-20 degrees each
time.

User manual for NERO / NERO INSTANT
If the level of grinding will be too low (very small particles), the coffee grinder will not be able to ground
sufficient amount of coffee, which would lead to “Grinder” error and will block the dispensing of coffee.
In such case you should increase the level of grinding. For the purpose you must loosen the upper disk
by turning it counter clockwise.
If the particle size is large the coffee will be less concentrated (less saturated). The time of working of
coffee grinder will be around 3-4 seconds. The thickness of output jet will be 3-4mm. in this case you can
also cause the leaking of the coffee group, because very large particles of coffee damage the gasket of
the piston. In such cases you should decrease the particle size – turn the upper disk clockwise.
The optimum time of grinder functioning is: 5-6 seconds if coffee dosage is set to position 3 and 6-7
seconds if the coffee dosage is set to position 4 (see the next section).
The ground coffee is fed into the dosing apparatus, which accumulates ground coffee up to a certain level. When the level is
reached the electromagnetic valve opens and the accumulated
dose of coffee is sent to the espresso group.
The dosing apparatus helps you set the required amount of coffee for the espresso group according to the desired drink.
The volume of coffee is regulated with the help of the dosing
apparatus’s cam (see figure 23 position 2 and figure 24). The positions can be from 1 to 6 (MAXIMUM). At the same time it is prohibited to set the cam to positions 5 or 6 without increasing the
volume of the boiling chamber (see further)! THIS CAN DAMAGE
THE ESPRESSO GROUP!!!
Figure 24
It is STRICTLY PROHIBITED to set the cam to positions 7 or higher!!!
The recommended settings for the cam are positions 3 or 4. This means a dose of 6.5-7.5 grams per
portion (per drink).
The weight of the ground coffee inside the dosing apparatus depends on the quality of grinding and type
of coffee.
After each re-setting of dosing apparatus, please weigh the amount of ground coffee according to the
current manual.
Depending on the weight of the coffee, you might need to regulate (adjust) the volume of espresso
group’s chamber.

1.1.18.3 Subnet mask
Setting the subnet-mask.
Here we set the subnet-mask, from which the Machine understands if any given IP address is local (part of LAN with direct
communication) or if it is external (Out of the LAN.
Communication through the gateway, see below).
The subnet-mask is set by the network administrator.
For example if the subnet-mask is 0.0.0.0 all the IP address
would be treated as external. If the subnet mask is 255.0.0.0
only the IP addresses which will have the same number as the
first number of the Machine’s IP address will be treated as local.
Different LANs use different subnet-masks, but usually one of
the following is used:
255.255.0.0 (large LAN which can comprise of up to 65536 devices)
255.255.255.0 (medium size LAN which can comprise of up to
256 networking devices)

devices)

1.1.18.4 Gateway
Setting the gateway address.
Here we set the IP address of the Gateway, through which the
Machine will access the external IP addresses.
This is set by the network administrator.
Except for accessing external IP addresses the Machine will
ping the Gateway for its MAC address every 10 seconds after
coming online, until it gets a response from the Gateway.
Therefore, even if you don’t intend to allow access to the outside world, it is recommended that you set this address, pointing it to some computer which is always available in the LAN.
Without this IP address the Machine will keep on dispatching
waste packets every 10 seconds
1.1.18.5 Remote IP
Here we set the Server’s IP address which is used to handle
card data, saving balance information on the server (not on the
card).
When such card is swiped (and when it is recharged or when
used for purchases) the Machine connects to the given server
and asks for permission to perform the action (or will check
current balance).
This address can be local (for the Machine) or external. If we
don’t use card system with balance information on the server,
we do not set this field

1.1.18.7 Allow eth. control
Here we can set YES for touch screen or NO for other Machines.
If set to YES the Machine opens port 999, through which the
Machine can be controlled, similarly as done with the touchscreen computer.
If set to YES, when the Machine is hooked to LAN, which is
not limited to the Machine, it is recommended that you hook
up a router to the Machine, which will remote access to the
Machine.
Otherwise the Machine can be hacked from the LAN (access to
Machine’s status, execute sales etc.)

7.0 Air fine tuning valve adjustment
Milk foam adjustment
To adjust the milk foam on the vending machine do the following:
-
Make sure that the milk container is installed in the refrigerator near the vending machine.
-
Make sure that the milk is fresh and unspoiled.
-
Make sure that the silicone milk supply tube at the vending machine inlet is not pinched.
- Make sure that the vending machine milk system was washed beforehand, and all its parts including the cappuccinatore are clean. Inspect the tubes for any sour or coagulated milk.
Make sure that all the above items are observed and proceed to the milk foam adjustment by sequentially executing the following operations:
-
Open the vending machine door;
-
Insert the service key into the door trip;
- Switch the vending machine on (see the manual) and wait for the boiler to heat up to the temperature specified in settings. To achieve the optimum foam performance the steam boiler temperature
should be set to 130°С;
- Adjust the foam control knob to the middle position (fig. 39). For doing this turn the control knob
all the way to the left and then all the way to the right. Set the control knob approximately to the middle
position;
Fig.39 - Milk foam adjustment
Version 3.2 / December 2017
Page 67
ТМ
User manual for NERO / NERO INSTANT
- Select a drink with the addition of fresh milk. As the drink is made, observe the milk flow from the
cappuccinatore adapter. The flow should be uniform, without any "pulsations" or "jerks" (the foam should
be poured into a cup in the form of a smooth stream without any splashes or inflating bubbles).
- Observe the cappuccinatore adapter - it's manufactured of transparent plastic to facilitate its contamination level inspection and adjustment process.
Fig.40
- At the cappuccinatore and the adapter joint there's a gap (see fig. 40). The foam shouldn't run out
of the adapter during the operation.
- If there's no foam coming out, but a slightly foamed milk, turn the foam control knob counter-clockwise. By doing this you are slightly opening the air delivery tap, and the milk foam should start coming out.
- If the foam is squirting out from the above-mentioned gap, this means that there's too much air
supplied. Turn the control knob clockwise.
The optimal foam adjustment:
The foam is streamed out uniformly and without any pulsations. The foam doesn’t overflow outside the cappuccinatore adapter and should have a fine-porous structure.
When lowering a stirrer to a cup it stands in the foam without declining (the height of the foam
should be higher than the middle of the stirrer).
If having trouble adjusting the foam in accordance with the above instruction, proceed to the following
section: “Offsetting the range of adjustments on the air fine tuning valve” (see below).

User manual for NERO / NERO INSTANT
Offsetting the range of adjustments on the air fine tuning valve
This setting may be required for adjusting the air supply during the operation of vending machines with
the FRESH MILK option if having trouble adjusting the acceptable quality of the milk foam because the
milk from different manufacturers has a different composition.
Fig.41 - Milk foam adjustment
To adjust the milk foam the following tools are required:
- A 7 mm frontal screwdriver or a 7 mm spanner wrench;
- РН2 cruciform screwdriver
In the case if it’s necessary to offset the range of adjustment on the air fine tuning valve, do the following:
1. Remove the tap from the vending machine fastener by unscrewing two nuts (fig. 42 and fig. 43).
