DMC's DrinkBot utilizes a Siemens S7-1200 PLC, 7" Comfort Panel, Siemens G120, and Siemens 1FK7 Servo Motor with DRIVE-CLiQ encoder to control the operation. The DrinkBot provides eight different alcohols or syrups and six different mixers for a large variety of drink options - anything from cocktails to Italian sodas!
