Converting Bevmax 1 top shelf to coil shelf.

Post by Redtop »

Hi

Just in planning for this, but current locations wants snacks (gym products) as clients have been requesting it. For now i have currently put the bars in big enough water bottles to vend them with the appropriate shims.

Looking for parts off an old bevmax 1 that has had the shelves converted already, just to make things easier. If anyone has any old scrap bevmaxs laying around please let me know.
I have a few contacts and to be honest, bevmax 1s are quite old and you can easily get one for £100 now.
Please see attached images.

Thank you

Regards
Sean

Be quite a job to convert I would have thought due to voltage pulses for gate? would need to rewire surely. ?

Ive seen many in the wild that were for sale with those shelves, wish i bought them when i had the chance. Im looking for an old scrapper bevmax that has it done so i can just take the shelf along with its wiring. Swapped these shelves before and its really just plug and play - apart from setting prices.

regards

The thing with these bevmaxs with snack shelves, they run a different firmware & control board to the usual all drink versions however getting hold of that particular version now would be tricky because I have pretty much scrapped everything I had with the older bevmaxs

I've done it :D Managed to find a donor machine, you are correct. To put snack shelves in - the board programmed differently to send the coil motor pulse is different.

Fully up and running on site now.
