PID Features & Programming
Benefits in detail
Adjust the coffee temperature at the group, set the steam temperature/pressure, program pre-infusion (1 - 5 sec), set a stand-by mode and more... The current temperature is displayed (Not programmed), and a shot clock is displayed during extraction.
Programmable single and double shots allow you to start your shot and walk away. The shot will stop automatically once your programmed volume is reached.
Thermal stability is achieved using a large thermal mass lead-free brass boiler insulated on all surfaces. Heat is transferred to the group directly from the top-mounted thermoblock. The temperature is monitored and controlled to within 1.5 deg by a sensor in the group.
Made from aluminium with an AISI316 stainless steel water circuit, the thermo-block provides a fast 2 min heat-up time, fresh water for every shot as boiler stored water is not re-heated, temperature stability from the 1-meter electronically controlled water path, constant steam pressure and reduced lime-scale build-up.
Active cup warmer
The cup warmer provides plenty of space for your favourite cups, and it is actively heated by a 10W element ensuring your cups are always hot.
