Purpose

This article acts as an on-site installation guide and USB hub connection guide to the Expansion Unit (XP6), an optional component for the MM6 device. The expansion unit connects to the left side of the countertop kiosk. It contains peripherals such as a Vertical Up-Stacker and a Receipt Printer.

When the Expansion Unit is combined with the MM5, these devices are called the MM6+. Learn how to install the MM6 by reading the article MM6 - Setup and Installation Guide

Please note that the XP6 only works with V5 and CK versions of the MM6 kiosk.

  2. Remove the top packing foam and discard. Remove the printer power supply (loose in the box) and set it aside for later. 

  3. It is recommended that you keep the foam packing material, as it can be used as a stand for the expansion unit during the installation process.

  4. Use the 1/8" hex wrench to remove the two screws from the cover trim piece on the left-hand side of the kiosk. Discard this trim piece and hardware.

  5. Use the 1/8" hex wrench to remove the screw in the middle of the black plastic shroud near the bottom on the left-hand side of the kiosk. Retain this screw for later.

Connecting the Printer and Bill Acceptor

Hardware USB Hub reminder:

  • MM6 XP Unit does have a USB hub
  • MM6 Kiosk does not have a USB hub

The Printer and Bill Acceptor USB cables plug into the hub, which is run out of the side of the XP unit and connected to the Kiosk PC.

  1. Open the MM6 kiosk. Install the printer power supply in the base by running the barrel connector of the power supply through the hole in the left-hand side of the kiosk and into the cable hole on the XP6 unit. Plug the power supply into the integrated UPS in the base of the kiosk. Make sure this wire does not interfere with the latch mechanism.

  2. Feed the power cable end (4 pin connector) into the XP shell and pull the USB cable (already positioned inside the shell) and power cables for the printer up and through the opening in the back of the XP shell.

  6. Connect the bill validator power cable to the loose barrel plug in the base of the MM6 kiosk, toward the front right side of the kiosk in the bottom area. Secure the connection with electrical tape, then tuck the cable into the base toward the front and out of the way.

  9. Slide the XP6 unit against the MM6 kiosk and angle backward to match the studs to the holes in the side rail. The bevel shape on the packing foam will act as a guide and help hold the XP6 at the correct angle and height.

  10. Tighten all 3 locknuts onto the studs with a 7/16" wrench after passing through the holes in the side rails.

  11. Remove packing foam and discard. Replace the socket head screw into the MM6 base through the leg on the XP6 using a 1/8" hex wrench. You may need to adjust the leg alignment to match the hole in the kiosk by pushing it up or down.

Final Installation Steps

  1. Connect the MM6 to the 120VAC 3-prong grounded outlet. Press and hold the Power button located at the back of the kiosk, holding until it beeps. The MM6 will then boot up and automatically start the POS (Point of Sale) software.


    To properly shut down the Kiosk when needed:

    • Open the kiosk and power down the PC by pressing its power button.

    • Once the PC is off, turn off the Kiosk by holding the Power button located in the back of the kiosk (the UPS) until you hear a long beep and then two short beeps.

  2. Once the unit is powered up, the operator should verify network connectivity and set up the router by connecting an operator-provided network cable from the MM6's LAN port to your local connection jack. Power for the router is supplied separately from the rest of the device. For more information on this process, see the Validating Network Status on ADM section of our Network Connectivity Verification article. 

  3. Locate and write down the serial number of the MM6, located on the side of the kiosk. Use this number when contacting 365Support at (888) 365-6282 to complete remote configuration.
