I'm seeking a talented engineer/designer to create a blueprint for a vending machine that dispenses purified water and ice. The machine must operate outdoors, accommodating dimensions of roughly 10W x 22L x 14H. Goal is to vend your own water and ice quickly and easily at a drive-up location. Filling your own bottles to save money and reduce plastic waste. Vending machine should be fully automated and monitored 24/7 for quality and purity. Key requirements include: Designed to provide clean and affordable drinking water, have several specifications that cater to efficiency, hygiene, and accessibility. Here are the key specs and features: Filtration and Purification: Multi-stage filtration process including sediment, carbon filtration, and reverse osmosis. UV light treatment to eliminate bacteria and viruses. Continuous monitoring of water quality with automated alerts for maintenance needs. Capacity and Output: High-capacity water storage tanks (typically ranging from 250 to 1000 gallons) to ensure a constant supply. Water dispensing rate designed to fill a gallon jug in under 30 seconds. Materials and Construction: Durable, weather-resistant materials for outdoor installation. Stainless steel and food-grade plastic components for water contact areas to ensure hygiene. User Interface: Easy-to-use touch screen or button-based interface. Multi-language support to cater to diverse user populations. Coin, bill, and card payment options for convenience. Dimensions and Installation: Compact design to fit in various locations (specific dimensions vary by model). Options for both freestanding and wall-mounted installations. Designed to be ADA compliant for accessibility. Maintenance and Monitoring: Remote monitoring capabilities for real-time diagnostics and maintenance alerts. Scheduled maintenance plans to ensure consistent water quality. Easy access panels for quick servicing and filter replacement. Energy Efficiency: Energy-efficient components and design to minimize operational costs. Solar power options available for off-grid installations and/or power backup. Additional Features: LED Advertising displays Option to Host Amazon pickup lockers on Back wall. Branding and customization options for the vending machine exterior. Built-in lighting for visibility and security at night. These specifications ensure that vending machines deliver high-quality drinking water efficiently and reliably to users.
