The Inebriator

The Inebriator is a home made automated cocktail machine. The Inebriator is powered by an Arduino Mega 2560 Microprocessor Project Board. A Hitachi HD44780 compatible display is used to allow display drink information, coupled with a couple of buttons to navigate the menu. A stepper motor is used to drive the drinks shelf, with acceleration and deceleration to allow high speed without spilling. All mixers are in plastic bottles in a cool box, each bottle has two pipes, one that is hooked to the gas tank (70% Nitrogen and 30% Carbon Dioxide), and the other goes from the bottom of the bottle to a valve. When the gas tank is opened (through a regulator) the bottles are pressurised to a low safe pressure. When 12v is applied to the valve it opens, and the pressure causes the liquid to flow through the pipe and ultimately into the glass. Each mixer has its own valve and individually controllable.

Nanotec - Programmable DC servos with integrated controller

Nanotec's Plug & Drive motors with field-oriented control are ideally suited for applications that require high performance and efficiency as well as compact size. The P&D series includes three motor types which are available in a high-pole stepper version and a low-pole BLDC version and controlled via USB or CANopen. Both the controller and the encoder are already integrated. For more information please call (781) 219-3343 or visit www.us.nanotec.com
