Manitowoc Indigo NXT: Setup Wizard

Manitowoc Indigo NXT: Setup Wizard

So today we're looking into setting up the new Indigo NXT ice machine. We're going to plug it in. The first thing the screen is going to do is to check for an update to see if there's any accessories plugged into it. Then, after a brief pause, the screen is going to light up blue, and it's going to take you into a set-up wizard. The set-up wizard on this machine - the first thing it's going to do is ask you to select the language in your local region. You can change the language by pressing the up and down arrows on the screen. But as we are setting up here in the United States, we are going to select English and press the right arrow button. The set-up wizard is going to guide you through a step-by-step process of setting this ice machine up. So, we're going to go ahead and initiate that set-up by pressing the 'start wizard'. The first thing it's going to do is to check the model number and make sure it is valid, and then it is going to ask you to set up a date and time configuration. The first thing is the date configuration, so we can select month/day/year or day/month/year. We can also select 24 hour time clock or 12 hour time clock. We're going to select month/day/year and 12 hour time clock at this point. And press the right arrow button. Then we're going to set up the local time of day in our local region by pressing the up and down arrow buttons around the time to our local time. And then we're going to press the right arrow button on the unit. We're going to set up the date as well. This is an important feature so that when we do set up events, we make sure we have the right time and date for our recorded events in the memory of the unit. So we'll set up the dates by pressing the up and down, and then we'll press the right arrow key on the bottom of the screen. The next thing it's going to do is to auto-detect any accessories that are plugged into the ice machine. So, this ice machine has no accessories plugged into it currently, so the accessories have a little red X on them. Either they're not installed on the machine, or they've been installed incorrectly on the machine. But it's telling you there under accessories installed. So, we're going to press the right arrow button. Next option available on this feature of this machine is that you can import data to it, setting data if you already have it by pressing ''import to ice machine'. And you can use a USB stick to import that data. But we're going to set it up manually on a standard button. So we're going to press the right arrow button, and it's going to ask us for the units. We can set this as metric or standard on this unit. We're going to set ours as standard right now for the United States and then we're going to press the right arrow button. Brightness is another feature that can be adjusted, and this is stand-by screen brightness. So when the unit goes into a power save mode, you can set the brightness of the screen for use by pressing the right and left arrow buttons. And then we're going to press the right arrow button at the bottom. Now, this has a few program mode features that we're going to look at. One of them is 'continuous mode'. We're going to take a look at 'time program'. So, if a unit doesn't have to run on a certain day of the week, you can set it to turn off. So let's just say we don't open on business on Mondays, and we'd like the machine the stay off on Mondays, we can just press 'off' for 24 hours on Monday, or we could set the clock to stay off too on certain times. But we're going to set it back to continuous mode on our unit so that it runs 24 hours every day of the week until it goes off on full bin. So, we're going to set ours on 'continuous mode'. 'Weight program' is another option. You can set it by weight, if you'd like, so you can tell it to make a certain weight per day on each day of those units. We're just going to keep ours on a 'continuous mode' for now, on our ice machine. And then we're going to press the right arrow button. Cleaning reminders are available. You can set a cleaning reminder to clean your ice machine on a certain monthly period. We're going to set ours to clean every 6 months to remind us. And sanitizing, too. We're going to set the sanitizing reminder on for every 6 months, and we're going to press the right arrow key. Air filter on the back of our air-cooled ice machine. We're going to to select a reminder to tell us when to clean our air filter, and we're going to set up the machine as well to tell us to clean the air filter every 1 month on our ice machine. And then we'll press the right arrow button. Yes! We do have a water filter installed on our ice machine, so we're going to press the 'yes' button. And we have an Arctic Pure water filter, so we're going to press 'yes' on that, too. Specifically we have a 10,000 on this system, so we'll press the 'AR 10,000'. And then it tells us that our automatic reminder to replace the filter is set up. So what it actually does is calculate the water that the machine uses, and it will tell you based on that calculation when you should replace the water filter. There is an option if you're not using a Manitowoc water filter that it can do it by just time, as well, and tell you to replace the filter at a certain time that you can set. And then we're going to press the right arrow button. We're going to use factory defaults on our machine, but there are other options of using reverse osmosis, which has the benefit of using less water in your ice machine to make ice. There's also the option to use a little bit more water in your ice machine to make even clearer ice than you normally would. And we're going to set ours back to the normal use factory default water usage on our ice machine and press the right arrow button. And then it tells us that our set-up is complete on this ice machine. And it's going to ask us to switch the ice machine on. So we're going to press the right arrow button. Another feature of this ice machine is once we open the front door, there are 3 buttons behind the front panel: a power button, a lock button, and a clean button. The lock button is used if you're having the ice machine at the front-of-house or in a public area like a hotel lobby, and you don't want people to touch the touchscreen and change the settings. You can put the lock on and the touchscreen will become disabled. The padlock on the top right indicates that it's in lock mode. And we're going to turn the lock back off and press the power button on our ice machine for it to make ice. And the display will show it making ice. The other button on the top right is the clean button to initiate a clean cycle, which we're not going to do right now, so we'll close the front door up on this machine. And you'll see that it says 'making ice' on it.

Manitowoc Indigo NXT: Time Program

Manitowoc Indigo NXT: Time Program

Hello! Today we're going to talk about how to program this Indigo NXT touch display to take advantage of the time programs. And the way we do this is press the 'menu' button on the left of the display. And then we're going to press 'energy', and then we're going to press 'ice'. And then we can press 'time program'. The reason we would do this is because some regions have different prices for energy at different times of the day. For example, one the west coast, the price of energy is increased from 4 to 7 pm. So as an example, we're going to program this ice machine to stay off from 4 to 7 pm so that it's not running at that peak period when the energy price increases. Of course you could do this another way as well, if it was in a region where energy costs less at a certain time of day, you could program the machine to stay on at that time of day and off at others. So we have it programmed between 4 and 7 pm to switch off. So off at 4 pm and on at 7 pm. And we're going to go back. So we just have this set for Monday, but you can go through each day and program each day the same way for the machine. So if we go back to the main screen by pressing the left arrow or the home button, you can see that it is now in a program mode and making ice, and there is an 'ice now' symbol down there on the bottom right of the screen. So if it was between 4 and 7 pm right now and the ice machine was off and you wanted ice, you could just press the 'ice now' button at that time period.

Programming your Indigo NXT ice machine to operate at certain time and not at others helps save energy consumption and costs. This short tutorial walks you through the programming process step-by-step.

Manitowoc Indigo NXT: Menu Display

Manitowoc Indigo NXT: Menu Display

The Indo NXT's easy touch display has a lock button in the middle of the screen. When you press the lock button a padlock appears on the display screen itself, which disables you being able to touch the screen. If this unit is placed at the front of the house or in a public area and you don't want people to change settings on the touch screen, the lock button will disable use of that touch screen. You see the padlock on the screen in the upper right area, that means the screen is disabled and you won't be able to change any of the settings. To unlock the screen you need to open the front of the unit and swing it open and then press the unlock button and the padlock should disappear. Now the touch screen is unlocked so you can change the settings on it as needed.
