Quick Overview

ACE ShureShot Espresso Shot Timer Kit
Product description

Alcorn Café Engineering, also known as ACE, a new and exclusively Espresso Parts product line of highly engineered modifications for espresso machines and grinders. We will continue to work with ACE in our partnership to bring you new coffee technology. We are currently welcoming Wholesale and Reseller inquiries! 

The ShureShot Controller was developed by passionate coffee engineers at Alcorn Café Engineering in Sydney, Australia. The project was conceived out of the need to be able to add a simple shot timer to machines that were not offered with an option of a shot timer or the option not taken up at time of purchase.

From simple shot timer, a dual colour display was added for simple 'good shot' / 'bad shot' recognition, flashing to indicate a shot was nearing completion and then later 4 programmable timers and 3 programmable outputs which adds the ability to drive a brew valve, pump and even a 'bypass valve' using 4 independent programmable timers.

Read more about ACE and watch the ShureShot in action on our blog. 

Features include:

  • Dual Colour Time Display
  • Timed Shots (shot stopped at pre-set time)
  • Multiple Brew Pumps
  • Auto Timed Pre-Infusion (only practical with multiple pumps)
  • Pump Bypass Valve Output
  • Auto Pre-Flush
  • Auto Post-Flush
  • Auto Cleaning Cycle

LINEA EE INSTALLATION

Before you begin, your skill set should include and be comfortable with:

Basic hand tools
Some light metalworking
Some relatively easy wiring

TOOLS REQUIRED 

Steel ruler: you will need a rule to measure and mark out the mounting locations for the ShureShot Timers and the Driver Boards.

Fine pointed permanent marker or 'Sharpie'

Center punch - a 'spring loaded' type is best for this type of work.

Small electric drill -

  • battery operated is the best option as these usually allow some form of speed control.
  •  Slower speeds are best for stainless steel

Drill bits - suitable for drilling stainless steel.

  • Choose a 3.3mm (1/8")
  •  4.4mm (11/64") 
  • something larger to 'clean up' the edges of the holes after drilling

'Dremel' or 'rotary' tool for cutting the rectangular cable slots

  • An arbor to suit both the rotary tool and wheels


Safety goggles


Ear protection


A flat smooth file slightly less than 14mm wide and with one 'safety edge' and one 'cutting edge'


Needle files - you can pick these up in a set, but if available separately, then you'll just need a small round needle file to clean up the corners of the slots


Good Quality screwdrivers - you will need:

  • Philips - #1
  • Philips - #2
  • Flat Blade - 3.5mm x 0.8mm

Good Quality multimeter - can be an 'entry level' low cost type, but trustworthy - you may be entrusting your life to it's quality and integrity

Optional: Test Pencil - handy to trace voltages, but DO NOT trust these explicitly.

 

Mounting Timers

Mount Driver Boards

Driver Boards should be mounted directly behind each group head on and inside a 'C-Shaped' channel on your Linea Classic.

Mount Driver Boards

Wiring

The wiring for a Linea EE is fairly straightforward.

Firstly you need Neutral and Active supplied to terminals L1 and L2.

These can be picked up from terminal blocks located behind each group head on a Linea.

We have supplied short lengths of blue and red wires - correctly terminated for this purpose.

Connect the red wire to the terminal with red wires closest to the front of the machine. Connect the blue wire to the terminal with the blue wires.

Next you need a 'trigger' signal to trigger the ShureShot Timer.

Disconnect the red wire from the Group Solenoid valve. Cut it to 150mm long from the terminal strip and connect it to our 3rd terminal.

Now connect the supplied Grey, Purple, Brown or Orange wire from our 4th terminal to the group valve.

We have supplied this wire with a 0.25" (6.35mm) Female Spade Connector for this purpose.

Finally, disconnect the white wire from the back of the manual group switch, trim to 150mm from the terminal strip and connect to our 5th terminal.

 CONFIGURATION

The ShureShot Shot Timer features 3 fully programmable output relays that can be configured at every one of 6 points along the shot's timeline.

 Typical ShureShot Configuration

 

They can also be individually configured for the cleaning cycles and post / pre flush cycles.

To access the Barista Menu, press and hold the left button for 5 seconds.

The display will begin flashing “SF”. Scroll through the menu selections using the left button, use the right button to make changes.

Display DescriptionDefault

 

Slow Flashing

This is the time that the display starts flashing slowly.

Use the right button to adjust from 0~99 seconds

Fast Flashing

This is the time that the display starts flashing quickly.

Use the rightbutton to adjust from 0~99 seconds

Delay 1

This is the first delay period and is
typically used for pre-infusion or pre-brew.

Use the right button to adjust from 0~99 seconds

Delay 2

This is the second delay period and can be used for a second stage of pre-infusion - such as a bypass valve or needle flow restrictor circuit.

Use the right button to adjust from 0~99 seconds

Delay 3

This is the third delay period and is
typically used for the main brew cycle.

Use the right button to adjust from 0~99 seconds

Delay 4

This is the fourth delay period and normally can be used for the ‘ramp down” or “tail” of the brew cycle.

Use the right button to adjust from 0~99 seconds
