How to alter dispenser rotation


In the videos of Bartendro setups the dispensers are rotating clockwise (the input tube to the left). When I opened my package and assembled the dispensers I noticed that they rotate anti clockwise when in "forward" mode. Is there a way to alter the rotation so that I don't have to disassemble all the dispensers (the tubing is already cut and assembled)?

In admin there are both forward and backward buttons, but I assume the dispensers all rotate anti clockwise when a drink is being poured.

Hi Bjorn,

The videos you are seeing are likely old when we weren't set on our dispensing direction. We ended up choosing counterclockwise to be the forward direction for one main reason. If the liquid sensor tubing is being used, we wanted it to line up with the input tubing so that those two tubes could be kept together for clean plumbing and more accurate results.

That being said, it sounds like you've already cut up your tubing, so I'll see if I can get a workaround for you. If you can SSH into bartendro, navigate to bartendro/ui/bartendro/router/ and make a change to a couple of variables. Change MOTOR_DIRECTION_FORWARD to 0 and MOTOR_DIRECTION_BACKWARD to 1 in two places. You can search for them.

You can take a look at that file here.

I haven't tested that out, but in theory that should work. I can test it when I get a chance, or if you get to it first, let me know if it works.

Thanks for the info. I will give it a try and get back to you.



It turned out that I have to change the tubing in any case so there is no need for me to revert the rotation anymore.

Thanks anyway!



Oh, ok. I tried the change that I recommend above, and it worked. So if you ever change your mind in the future, that'll work.



This could be useful in the future.
