MM6 Kiosk (No Expansion 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.

MM6_-_Cutout_-_No_Screen.png

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 and paperless,  but can optionally include an expansion 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 Expansion 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

 

MM6 Kiosk (With Expansion 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.

  • T-Lock

Dimensions:

20” wide x 15.5” deep x 29.75” high

Power:

Installing the Expansion Unit

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

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

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

  1. Open the expansion unit and the MM6 device.
  2. Locate the two cables connected to the NV-9 bill validator. 
  3. Feed the cables through from the expansion unit to the MM6 via the cable port openings 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 expansion unit onto the 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 expansion 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 Z3 Router

The Meraki Z3 router is required in an expansion unit 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.

Network Requirements for the Meraki Z3 Router

Refer to the Network Requirements - Company Kitchen document for further information about CK/365 networks and routers.

Although the food scale is a standard item, it is not a part of every installation and may be added to a setup after it has gone live. This is needed for the CK Dining Kiosk option for locations that have food items that need to be weighed to determine the price.

See ADM How to Add a Scale Item for more information. 

 

Epson TM-T7011/ TM-U220B Impact Chit Printer (Optional)

The Impact Printers are optional kitchen printers, which can deliver consumer orders to the kitchen staff. 

Coming soon: Part numbers, photos, and setup information for the Epson Epson TM-T7011 and TM-U220B. 

 

Impact Printer Physical Setup

  1. Place the printer in a convenient location near the expo or line cook.
  2. Plug in the power adaptor, which is hidden in a little hollow area against the side of the case. This cable is roughly 6ft long and needs to be plugged into a 120v grounded electrical outlet.
  3. Plug the network data cable into an Ethernet jack. The Ethernet jack must be connected to the router.

This allows the power cord to be plugged into the adaptor, and the adaptor to then be plugged into the power connector on the bottom of the device. The power cord and the adaptor can then be slotted into an opening on the bottom of the printer.
