Attach Multiple Vending Units Together

Combine Units

Scale your vending solution in a smart way by adding additional units when and how you want with a master-slave setup. The “MSK” is Smart Vending Machine with full remote access to the User Interface, Sales Report, Peripherals, Inventory Amount and Status of the machine.

The Open 24

This is an example of how to create an effective mini-market (automated retail store) using a central payment center. Complete with a 24” touch-screen, the central “MSK” can control up to 4 “satellite” (often called “slave”) units. Pictured above, you can see how this allows for configuring each satellite unit uniquely. Different combinations of refrigerated and non-refrigerated units highlight this idea.

Control Unit

The modular system consists of a Control Unit, and the vending unit used for inventory and vending.

Each of these can support up to 4 satellite units. They range from a screenless interface on the left, to a small 10” touch in the middle, and a 27” unit on the right, with a powerful user interface and presence.


Satellite Units

These units provide the vending functionality. These can be combined with any of the Control Units shown above.
