An intelligent volumetric module for use in metering pressurized syrup to a drink dispenser machine comprises a solenoid driven metering system for controlling liquid flows from a pressurized syrup container and a controller for controlling operation of said solenoid driven metering system according to uniquely addressed instructions received from the drink dispenser's system controller. The controller comprises a self-addressing capability, wherein serial communication to all but one non-addressed volumetric module is disrupted while a first address is ...
What is claimed is: 1. A method for assigning serial communication addresses to a plurality of volumetric modules, comprising: disrupting serial communication to all but one non-addressed volumetric module by opening a switch in each volumetric module, each said switch being adapted to disrupt serial communication beyond its volumetric module; assigning a first address to said one non-addressed volumetric module; enabling serial communication to a next non-addressed volumetric module by closing the switch corresponding to the module addressed in said as...
