SureVend™ Overview:
1.
SureVend™ ensures that a cup is always available in the cup station before any
money is collected or product delivered. The sensing system is a beam of infra-red
light across the cup station that is broken by a cup as it falls into position from the
cup drop unit, or by a customer placing his own mug in the dispense area.
2.
The SureVend™ software monitors the cup station sensor during the time that the
cup ring is operated and for three seconds afterwards. If a cup is not detected the
software will then attempt to drop a cup a second and if necessary, a third time,
after which the customer’s money is returned
3.
The machine remains in service and the machine will accept another customers
vend request and payment, and will attempt to drop a cup a further three times. If
a cup is still not detected the customer’s money is again returned.
The machine will now accept a third customers payment and attempts to drop a
cup three more times. If these attempts fail, the customer’s money is returned and
the message “Out of Cups” is displayed.
4.
To clear the message and return to standby mode, open the door.
5.
Check and, if necessary, clear the cup drop unit. Ensure correct operation before
leaving the machine.

7.1 Water Services
The mains water supply provides water for the heater tank and the pressure system fitted
to Espresso (B2C) machines. Water enters at the rear of the machine through a solenoid
operated inlet valve operating at 24v DC, which opens or closes the water supply as
required.
7.2 Hot Water System
7.2.1 General
1.
Water is heated in the heater tank to the required temperature by a heating
element rated at 2.4 Kilowatts. The mains voltage required for the element is
switched by a solid state relay, controlled by the vending machine controller via an
analogue signal transmitted by the thermistor probe.
2.
The water level inside the heater tank is controlled by a water level probe. When
the water drops below the required level, the controller board operates the mains
water inlet valve until the required water level is restored.
3.
A series of 24v DC control valves are mounted on the outside of the heater tank.
These supply heated water to each of the mixing stations where ingredients are
added to make the drink. The “hot water” valve dispenses straight into the cup.
4.
Should the inlet valve fail (or mains water supply be disabled), the controller board
will detect a fault after the inlet valve ‘open’ signal has been active for 2 minutes
and the required water level has not been reached.
At this point the keypad will be disabled, all outputs from the controller board
(including the heater element) will be switched off and the LCD will show the
message “Sorry Out of Service, Fill Timeout”.
7.2.2 B2C Machines
The water system fitted to B2C machines is described in detail in this manual , refer to
Section 8.2 - System Overview for full details.
7.3 Ingredient Dispense
1.
The ingredients required for making up either an instant or freshbrew drink are
contained in ingredient canisters and are dispensed by means of an auger located
in the base of each canister. Each auger is driven by a 24v DC 128 RPM motor.
2.
The amount of product dispensed by each canister is controlled by the vending
machine controller and may be adjusted via the Selection Timers menu , refer to
the Engineers Program – Para. 5.7.2 for full details.
3.
The required ingredients for each vend are delivered to the mixing bowl, where
they are blended with hot water by a high speed whipper prior to discharge at the
dispense head.

Section 7 - Technical Information
4.
VOCE Media
To ensure a free flow of ingredient powder and granules, it is essential that they
are kept completely dry. This is achieved by extracting steam from the mixing
system using an extract fan. The electrical supply for the extract fan is 230v AC.
N.B. The fan runs continuously whilst the machine has power.
5.
B2C machines: Coffee beans are stored in a bean container and are dispensed into
the CoEx® Brewer via a 230v AC grinder located under the bean container outlet.
The amount of beans dispensed from the container is controlled by the vending
machine controller and may be adjusted via timing constraints set in the Engineers
Program.
7.4 Mixing System
1.
The mixing system utilises 24v DC 13,000 RPM motor assemblies and mixes
ingredient with hot water from the heater tank.
2.
The mixing units are front mounted and secured by a single fixing screw. For
servicing, the complete unit can be quickly and easily removed.
7.5 Moving Dispense Head
1.
Voce machines are fitted with a moving dispense head mechanism. This allows for
a quicker and more direct cup drop and also helps to prevent cross contamination
of drinks. The head features two separate dispense positions depending upon the
drink being dispensed.
2.
The mechanism is operated by a 24v DC 48 RPM motor. The motor is connected to
a pinion which engages with a rack on the dispense arm. This mechanism is used
to move the dispense head backwards and forwards.
3.
A micro switch, fitted to the rear of the dispense head chassis detects the home
position (head withdrawn/not dispensing). An optical sensor is also fitted and this
works in conjunction with a decoder bracket attached to the rack to determine the
position of the dispense head.
4.
A moulded dispense head mounted at the front of the unit connects the tubes
from the various mixing systems, brewers and hot water, to separate dispense
nozzles.
N.B. Dispense pipe lengths are shown in Section 9.
7.6 Cup Dispense Unit
1.
Cups (either paper or plastic) are stored in tubes which are located above the cup
dispense unit. The unit incorporates a 24v DC, motor for Indexing the correct turret
over the cup drop unit as required.
2.
The cups are separated and ‘dropped’ by a cup ring. The cup ring comprises five
separator cams operated by a 24v DC motor, which is controlled by the vending
machine controller.
Technical Manual
69
The cup level is monitored by an electronic system. An infrared LED (cup sensor
transmitter) is positioned in the cup assembly above the cup splitter, with an
infrared detector (cup sensor receiver) mounted directly opposite.
4.
The light emitted by the LED is detected when NO CUPS are present. With a stack
of cups present, the beam is broken. As the cups drop below the LED, transmitted
light is detected. If this is the case, the controller will index the cup tubes until a
full stack is located. A turret location micro- switch ensures that the cup tubes stop
centrally over the cup ring.
N.B. The turret motor will run until the next stack is deposited into the cup splitter,
which breaks the LED beam, and the cup stack micro switch returns to its normally
open state. The motor will run until it either finds the next stack or all the turret
extrusions have been checked. If no cups are present the “Out of Cups Please Insert
Mug” message is displayed on the LCD.
5.
The cup stack index motor is protected by a time-out feature. The motor will rotate
for a maximum period of 60 seconds. If at the end of this period no cups have
been detected the LCD will display the “Out of Cups” message.
7.7 Waste Level Probes
1.
The waste level probes, positioned in the waste bucket, detect the water level in
the bucket.
2.
The system consists of two probes in a moulded body. When the water level is high
enough that both of the probes are immersed in the water a message is displayed
on the LCD indicating the waste bucket is full and the machine is disabled. The
machine will remain in this state until the waste bucket has been emptied.
7.8 CoEx® Brewer (If Applicable)
The unique CoEx® combined coffee and espresso brewer provides both freshly brewed
coffee along with fresh coffee from beans through the same unit. The unit is driven by a
24v DC, 13 RPM motor, controlled by a micro switch. The switch sends logic signals to the
controller during vend and initialise operations, indicating its position.
Please refer to Section 9 for full details of the CoEx® brewer and its operation.
7.9 Oltre Brewer (If Applicable)
Machines may be fitted with either one or two continuous belt Oltre brewers. The
chamber, base plate, filter belt and outlet elbows are different depending on whether you
are vending leaf tea or ground coffee.
Two 24v DC 30rpm motors are used on each of these brewers, one to raise and lower the
brewer chamber the other to advance the filter belt. A cam operated micro switch signals
to the Main Controller whether the chamber is open or closed.

7.9.1 Coffee Brewing
1.
The coffee outlet elbow and baseplate are colour coded yellow and the belt is tan.
2.
The chamber clamps down onto the base plate and filter, water and coffee is then
dispensed. After the brew time (set in program) has elapsed a 24v DC peristaltic
pump draws the coffee liquor through the filter and is pumped to a whipper
chamber where it can be whipped if required before being delivered into the cup.
3.
The chamber now lifts and the second motor drives the filter belt and the waste is
scraped into the waste bucket.
7.9.2 Tea Brewing
1.
The tea outlet elbow and baseplate are colour coded blue and the belt is white.
2.
The chamber clamps down onto the base plate and filter, water and tea leaves are
then dispensed. Gravity draws the tea through the filter and it is delivered into the
cup.
3.
The chamber now lifts and the second motor drives the filter belt and the waste is
scraped into the waste bucket.
7.10 Power Supply
1.
The main power supply unit (PSU) provides power to the machine. It is mounted in
the top right hand side of the machine and can be accessed by removing the top
RH panel.
2.
The PSU converts 230v AC to 24v DC to run the valves, whipper motors, ingredient
motors, brewers, etc. fitted to the machine. The solid state relay, mounted on the
PSU chassis, uses a 24v DC switching circuit to provide 230v AC for the heater
element.
3.
A secondary PSU converts 230v AC to 12v DC to power the screen and associated
LEDs.
4.
The Input/Output (I/O) board, mounted on the PSU chassis, utilises signals from
the main controller in order to operate valves, whipper motors, the dispense head
motor, ingredient motors, brewer motors, etc.
5.
The PSU houses the fuses. These are as follows.




Heater, 12 amp (T) (ceramic) - Heater Tank
240v Auxiliary, 4 amp (glass)
240v Cold Unit, 4 amp (T) (glass) - if a fridge is fitted
24v Coin Mech, 4 amp (T) (glass) - if a Exec monetary system is fitted
Early machines had separate fuses for the Pressure Boiler (12A T) and also for the
PSU (4A T).
Technical Manual
71
A mains filter, mounted on the rear panel, prevents spurious voltages generated by the
machine from reaching the mains supply. .
7.12 Coin Mechanism Transformer (Optional Extra)
The coin mechanism transformer converts 230v AC to 24v AC for Executive protocol type
coin mechanisms and cashless systems.
7.13 Coin and Card/Key Systems
The VOCE may be equipped with coin or card/key validation systems using either protocol
‘A’ or an MDB system. The coin or card/key system informs the vending machine
controller of the amount of credit which has been deposited into the vending machine.
7.14 Coin Mechanism
1.
The coin mechanism which validates the coins, communicates with the vending
machine controller through a serial communication interface.
2.
Once sufficient credit has been accumulated a vend will be permitted. Where
possible the coin mechanism will return the appropriate amount of change to the
customer.
7.15 Card/Key System
1.
The card system fitted to the machine communicates with the vending machine
controller using the same principle as the change giver.
2.
The card system informs the vending machine controller of the amount of credit
on the customer's card. If there is sufficient credit for the selected drink, the
vending machine controller permits a vend and informs the card system of the
amount of credit to be taken from the card. The new balance will then be rewritten onto the customer's card.
N.B. For full information and programming instructions for all of these systems, please
refer to the user manual supplied with the validation system.

B2C machines are capable of producing high quality espresso based drinks through the
unique CoEx® brewer unit either independently (Espresso, Americano), or in conjunction
with soluble product (Cappuccino, Caffe Mocha etc). The machine will also vend high
quality freshbrew coffee from pre-ground product.
8.1 Vend Sequence
When an Espresso drink is selected the following sequence occurs:1.
The customer selects an espresso drink. Fresh beans are delivered into the grinder
and the grinder is operated for a pre-determined time. Ground coffee is deposited
into the CoEx® brewer.
2.
The brewer moves to the vend position. The brewer motor starts running
clockwise, causing the filter assembly to cover the piston chamber and the piston
to move upwards, forming the ground coffee into a compressed pellet as it does so.
3.
When the heater reaches the correct temperature the inlet valve is opened and the
3 bar pressure relief valve closed. At the same time the pumps will start pumping
water through the system and into the brewer.
4.
Whilst water is passing through the system a water flow meter will send pulses
back to the main controller and the espresso selection will be delivered into the
cup.
5.
Once the required amount of water has been pumped through the system, the
inlet valve closes and the pumps stop pumping water through the system. The
brewer compresses the used coffee pellet, the pressure relief valve is opened and
the espresso valve switched off.
6.
The brewer motor reverses and drives the piston back up to the top of the
chamber. The wiper mechanism ejects the used coffee pellet into the dry waste
container and the brewer piston moves back to the stand-by position.
8.2 System Overview
Important: The machine must be operated in conjunction with a water filter of food
grade quality, capable of removing temporary hardness (scale), heavy metals (lead,
copper, iron, cadmium), chlorine and any organic pollutants/discolouration. Crane
Merchandising Systems recommend the Brita AquaQuell water filter for use with B2C
machines.
1. Water Inlet Valve
A 24V dc single solenoid water inlet valve. When a drink is selected the inlet valve is
opened. At the same time the pumps are operated, pumping water through the system.
2. Reducing Valve
An inline reducing valve that maintains water pressure entering the system at 0.5 bar.
3. Flow Meter
As water flows through the system, the flow meter sends pulses back to the control
board.

4. Vibration Pump/s - 230V ac
When a drink is selected the pumps switch on at the appropriate moment until the
required amount of water has been pumped through the system.
5. Pressure Boiler
The pressure boiler has a capacity of 350ml and is fitted with a 2kW heating element.
Cold water is diffused as it enters the boiler through the lower coupling. Heated
water exits the boiler through the top coupling. A resettable temperature cut-out is
mounted externally near the top of the boiler as a safety feature. A thermistor is
mounted in the front of the boiler to measure water temperature.
6. Espresso Valve
Supplies heated water to the CoEx® brewer when an espresso or freshbrew drink has
been selected.
7. Pressure Valve
This valve is normally open exposing the system to the 3 bar mechanical relief valve.
It is closed during vends to allow higher pressures to be achieved within the system.
8. Relief Valve - 3 Bar (Mechanical)
The 3 bar pressure valve is a mechanical safety valve. The valve allows for heat
expansion while the machine is in stand-by mode.
9. Grinder Mechanism (Not Shown On Water Flow Diagram)
The grind mechanism consists of a 230V ac conical grinder with a manual
adjustment. When an espresso based drink is selected the grinder will run for the
programmed time, grinding beans and feeding the brewer at the same time. The
grinder is fitted with a manual adjusting mechanism which allows the engineer to
vary the size of the ground coffee in order to satisfy customers’ taste preferences.
10. CoEx® Brewer (Not Shown On Water Flow Diagram)
The brewer unit is capable of receiving between 5 and 9 grams of ground coffee.
Once the coffee has been ground and dispensed into the brewer unit, the 24V dc
brewer motor drives the brewer to the vend position using the current sensing as
control. The coffee is compressed into a round ‘cake’ and water is pumped through
the brewer. When the required amount of water has passed through the brewer, the
now wet coffee ‘cake’ is squeezed, removing most of the water from the ‘cake’,
preventing the brewer becoming unnecessarily dirty. After the ‘cake’ has been
squeezed the brewer will deposit the cake into the dry waste container and return to
the stand-by position.

To maintain correct water levels and water temperature the heater tank must be
inspected regularly and, if necessary, be de-scaled. To ensure long and trouble-free
operation, Crane Merchandising Systems recommend that all machines have a water filter
fitted.
There are a number of ways of de-scaling the heater tank. The tank can be removed and
scraped out with a blunt tool but it can also be left inside the machine and a de-scaling
agent introduced into the tank. This eliminates the need to remove the thermistor, water
level probe and all the outlet valves from the tank, saving time and money. Always
remember to fit a new water filter and boiler seal after de-scaling.
Use the following steps as a guideline only and always refer to the instructions supplied
with the de-scaling agents regarding dosage and de-scaling time.
1.
Switch off the machine and open the door. Remove all canisters and back covers.
2.
Using the drain hose fitted to the tank, remove the bung and drain the water from
the heater.
Safety First! Allow the water in the tank to cool before draining.
3.
Once all of the water has drained from the tank, replace the bung into the drain
hose. Introduce the de-scaling solution in the recommended dosage into the
heater tank. on the machine and allow the heater tank to fill.
4.
Turn off the machine and leave for approximately 40 minutes before draining the
tank again following the sequence described above.
5.
Fit a new water filter and switch on the machine. Fill the tank and drain again until
all traces of the de-scaler are removed (at least 3 times).
6.
Switch on the machine and allow the heater tank to fill and to heat up. Drain and
fill one more time. The machine is now ready to be put back in service.

The water temperature in the Main Boiler and the Pressure Boiler (B2C machines) is
controlled by a thermistor probe. This has a variable resistance – high resistance when
cold, low resistance when hot. The thermistor probe is in contact with the water and
continuously monitors the water temperature. At room ambient temperature the
thermistor resistance is approx. 3000 ohms. At 96°C the thermistor resistance is approx.
200 ohms.
Both Boiler Heating Elements are controlled by Solid-State Relays, which are in turn
controlled from the I/O Board. The Main Boiler Element is rated at 2.4kW, the B2C Boiler
Element is rated at 2.0kW.
Should control of the Heating Elements fail for any reason, both Elements are protected
by In-Line, Manually Reset-able Thermal Cut-Outs. These are positioned in the overflow
pipe of the Main Boiler (90°C), and on the casing of the B2C Boiler (115°C).
