MM6 Kiosk (No XP6 Unit)

Please note that this product is in beta and physical changes may occur before the product is fully released. This guide will be updated with any changes.

The MM6 device with a blank screen

The MM6 uses an Actineon Silent 11G PC to run the entire kiosk setup. On the front of the kiosk, at the bottom, there is a black panel that can be pulled off the screen to reveal a bank of connectors. The unit is cashless/paperless, but can optionally include an XP6 unit (both bill validator and receipt printer) or a stand-alone receipt printer.

Dimensions:

13.75” wide x 15.5” deep x 29.75” high

Power:

120VAC 3-prong grounded outlet (15 amp service)

Weight:

51 lbs 

 

Setting Up the MM6 (No XP6 Unit) 

For Dining, the MM6 is a plug-and-play device. It is staged and assembled prior to shipment.

  • When the operator receives the MM6 device, they will simply need to plug in the power cable to power the unit up.
  • Once the unit is powered up, the operator should verify network connectivity. For more information, see the Validating Network Status on ADM section of our Network Connectivity Verification article.
  • It is recommended, but not required, to bolt your kiosk to the countertop/tabletop

  • Epson M296A Receipt Printer
  • T-Lock

Dimensions:

20” wide x 15.5” deep x 29.75” high

Installing the XP6 

For Dining, the MM6 XP6 expansion unit is a plug-and-play device. XP6 units are staged and assembled prior to shipment.

If you were sent a kiosk during the initial phase of beta testing, your XP6 unit may have been already attached to the MM6, and no further setup is needed. 

For continued beta testing and beyond, the XP6 unit will be delivered separately from the MM6 kiosk. This makes both the MM6 itself and the XP6 easier to install on-site. Operators can adjust the layout of these devices for each unique location. 

  1. Open both the XP6 unit and the MM6 device.
  2. Locate the two cables connected to the NV-9 bill validator. 
  3. Feed the cables through from the XP6 unit to the MM6 via the lower cable access point as shown.

  4. Plug the power cord into the power strip located within the MM6 kiosk (see photo), and plug the remaining cord into the MM6 CPU.

  5. Once the cables are connected, bolt the XP6 onto the MM6 kiosk.  The connection between these two devices is outlined by a red box in the photo below.

  6. Arrange any excess cable length so that it will not interfere with the opening or closing of the devices in the future. Close both the XP6 unit and the MM6. 
  7. It is recommended, but not required, to bolt your kiosk to the countertop or tabletop. 
  8. Power up the unit. 
  9. Verify network connectivity: use the steps found in the Validating Network Status on ADM section of our Network Connectivity Verification article.

Cisco Meraki Z3C Router

z3.png

The Meraki Z3C router is required in an XP6 setup. The Meraki router creates a secure network connection between the devices plugged into the router and the 365 servers. All traffic initiated from the kiosks travels through this secure, private connection, known as a VPN Tunnel

Refer to the Network Requirements - 365Dining document for further information about 365 networks and routers.

NOTE: The Z3 model router does not have a power button. To restart, it needs to be unplugged and plugged back in. The router should take approximately 4 seconds to start up.

 

Meraki Router Setup and Installation

  1. Using an operator-provided network cable, connect the "Internet" port to your local internet connection jack. The maximum cable length is 100ft.
  2. Using the included network cable, connect one of the LAN ports to the kiosk.
  3. Using the included power adapter, plug the “Power” port into a nearby power outlet.

 

Standalone Epson M296A Receipt Printer (Optional)

The Epson M296A receipt printer is an optional component that can be added to the MM6 kiosk for locations that want to remain cashless but allow for a printed receipt option.

Standalone Epson M296A Receipt Printer Setup and Installation

 

Installing an Epson Printer for MM6 

  1. Unlock the kiosk so that the CPU can be accessed. Remove all packing materials from the printer, including all tape on the device. 
  2. Assemble the power cable. Plug the barrel connector of the power cable into the printer, and insert the USB cable end into the printer.

Food Scale (Optional)

Scale Models: Mettler Toledo Ariva-S or Ariva-S Mini 

 

Although the food scale is a standard item, it is not a part of every installation. It can be added to a setup after it has gone live. If the consumers are using a food scale, any food item that needs to be weighed needs to be marked as such in the product catalog. See ADM How to Add a Scale Item for more information. 

 

Ariva-S

Dimensions:

(W x L x H) 2.20” x 11.0” x 12.40

Power:

9V DC Wall Power: Transformer for 120/220 VAC

Food Scale Setup and Installation

Image10.PNG

Equipment:

  • Scale
  • Scale Display
  • Scale Display Seat
  • Black plastic bolts for Display Seat
  1. First, identify which scale will be used for your setup. The best way to differentiate between the mini and normal scale is the ports on the back: the Ariva-S-mini has ports for PWR and COM, while the standard-sized scale has an additional DSP port.
  2. Remove the display from the T-Bar and attach it to the Display Seat. Instructions for this process are available in the scale's documentation.

  3. Using the plastic bolts, attach the Display Seat to the scale on the side closest to the DSP port.
  4. Connect the Scale Display cable to the DSP port on the scale.
  5. Connect the yellow Ethernet cable to the “COM” port on the scale. The other end of the yellow cable goes to the kiosk.

  6. Place the scale on a flat surface near the cash drawers.
  7. Level the scale using the telescoping legs. There is a bubble level under the scale plate.

NOTE: Do not use the power cable. The scale receives power via the computer-to-USB cable.
