Title (EN) ACCESSORY FOR SUPPLYING AUTOMATICALLY A BEVERAGE MACHINE WITH LIQUID FROM A DISTRIBUTION NETWORK
(FR) ACCESSOIRE PERMETTANT D'ALIMENTER AUTOMATIQUEMENT UNE MACHINE À BOISSONS EN LIQUIDE À PARTIR D'UN RÉSEAU DE DISTRIBUTION
Abstract:
(EN) A connecting device (1) is configured for connecting a beverage machine (2) with an external liquid delivery system (3) to supply such liquid to the machine (2). The machine (2) has a liquid storage tank (20) with an upper opening (20a). The device (1) has: an inlet (10) for a fluid connection to the external system (3); an outlet (13) for delivering liquid from the external system (3) via the inlet (10) to the machine (2); a valve arrangement (12a, 12b) switchable between an open configuration for establishing or interruption a fluidic connection between the inlet (10) and the outlet (13); and a control unit (14) for switching the valve arrangement (12a, 12b) between its open configuration and its closed configuration. The device (1) further comprises: a sensor arrangement (15a, 15b) connected to the control unit (14) that is configured to switch the valve arrangement (12a, 12b) in response to a triggering signal from the sensor arrangement (15a, 15b); and an assembly arrangement (16c, 16d) for reversibly fixing the connecting device (1), as a user-removable accessory (1), to the tank (20).
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de raccordement (1) configuré pour raccorder une machine à boissons (2) à un système de distribution de liquide externe (3) pour fournir ledit liquide à la machine (2). La machine (2) présente un réservoir de stockage de liquide (20) doté d'une ouverture supérieure (20a). Le dispositif (1) présente : une entrée (10) pour un raccordement fluidique avec le système externe (3); une sortie (13) permettant de distribuer un liquide depuis le système externe (3) par l'intermédiaire de l'entrée (10) à la machine (2); un agencement de valve (12a, 12b) commutable entre une configuration ouverte pour établir ou interrompre un raccordement fluidique entre l'entrée (10) et la sortie (13); et une unité de commande (14) permettant de commuter l'agencement de valve (12a, 12b) entre sa configuration ouverte et sa configuration fermée. Le dispositif (1) comprend en outre : un agencement de capteur (15a, 15b) raccordé à l'unité de commande (14) qui est configuré pour commuter l'agencement de valve (12a, 12b) en réponse à un signal de déclenchement provenant de l'agencement de capteur (15a, 15b); et un dispositif de montage (16c, 16d) permettant de fixer de manière réversible le dispositif de raccordement (1), en tant qu'accessoire amovible par l'utilisable (1), au réservoir (20).
