Description

ECM Germany Technika PID V Profi Espresso Machine with Rotary Pump Switchable 115 V

Overview:
The Technika Profi V PID is yet another example of ECM Germany’s reputation for creating commercial espresso machines of excellent build quality and prosumer performance. This is the “Profi” or professional, version of the Mechanika. What do you get with this title? A heftier stainless steel E61 grouphead for temperature stability, a rotary vane pump for quieter operation, and the ability to direct plumb the machine if desired. With the Technika PID Profi, ECM allows the home barista to feel like their kitchen is a professional coffee shop!
Now included, a PID Display for individual adjustment of the temperature of the boiler and to indicate the coffee extraction time (shot clock).
Heat exchange system:
  • Stainless steel, insulated – The boiler is made of stainless steel which is less susceptible to limescale. Typically stainless steel boilers do not retain their heat as well as copper or brass boilers. This machine compensates that by being wrapped with insulation.
  • Pull a shot & steam milk at the same time – Steam is always readily available. Therefore there is no wait time going from coffee to steam mode. Works well if entertaining a small group of people.
LARGER Separate pressure gauges (compared to the previous non-PID version):
  • Steam pressure gauge – Located on the left. Measures from 0 to 3 bar. Optimal pressure is between 0.8 and 1.1.
  • Brew pressure gauge – Located on the right. Measures from 0 to 16 bar. Optimal pressure is between 8 and 10.
E-61 grouphead:
  • Constantly heated – Hot water circulates from the heat exchanger through the grouphead and back to keep the grouphead and your portafilter nice and hot. This keeps the grouphead at a constant, stable temperature compared to other groupheads that have a built-in heating element.
  • Pre-infusion – The lever next to the grouphead activates a microswitch which turns on the pump to pump water through the coffee grinds. When you pull the lever halfway up, it will open the valve to allow water into the grouphead without activating the pump. Please note that true pre-infusion requires the direct water connection whereby the water pressure from the waterline creates true pre-infusion.
Rotary vane pump:
  • Quiet operationRotary pumps are necessary for direct connect capable machines since vibration pumps cannot handle the incoming water pressure. The main benefit that you will experience is that they are a lot quieter.
  • Adjustable Rotary Pump Pressure – No need to remove the body panel to access. The adjustment screw is accessible underneath the machine.
Switchable from water tank to direct water connection:
  • Easy transition – After hooking up the water line (included) to your machine, all you need to do is activate the switch located behind the drip tray on the left side. Turn to the “1” position.
Steam & hot water wands:
  • Joystick lever handles – Easily pull in any direction for quick activation. Both joysticks will lock in any position for hands-free operation.
  • Multi-directional – Allows for more movement and flexibility.
  • “No burn” – Both wands are insulated to allow you to touch anywhere on the arm. Please note that after very long periods of steaming or pouring hot water, the arm will be too hot to touch. We recommend to only touch the rubber grips on each wand.
  • 2-hole steam tip – Allows for a slow gradual build-up of microfoam.
Accessories included with the ECM Technika PID Profi V Espresso Machine:
  • Portafilters – Single spout portafilter and a dual spout portafilter. Both handles match the style of the grouphead lever and are ergonomically designed with an angle for an easier operation to lock into the grouphead.
  • Filter baskets – 1-cup filter basket which holds approximately 7 grams. 2-cup filter basket which holds approximately 14 grams. Blind filter basket which you can use for backflushing. All basket is 58 mm in diameter.
  • Tamper – A cheap plastic tamper, common for most espresso machines to keep the overall selling price of machine low. We recommend upgrading to a better tamper.
  • Cleaning brush – Used for cleaning the grouphead. Ergonomically designed with an angle for easier usage. The neck has special ridges to keep hot water from dripping to your hand.
  • Hose – Stainless steel braided. For connecting to a water line.
  • Instruction manual – Written in both German and English. The instructions also work for the Technika.

Espresso Machine Warning:

  • ELECTRICAL WARNING: To avoid electrical damage to this espresso machine which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. the lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso machine can be damaged at the power switch, the electronics, the heating element, the pressurstat or the wiring inside.
  • WATER WARNING: To increase the useful life of and not damage your espresso machine, please use softened water. Softened water is water without calcium and without magnesium, but still has other minerals for espresso extraction. Do not use distilled water, purified water, nor reverse osmosis water as these types of water create oxidation with the metals and cause the same damaging effects as limescale.
  • DESCALING WARNING: We do not recommend descaling unless there is an issue with the espresso machine. The reason is that too much descaling can eat away at the metals and gaskets inside an espresso machine.

        A My machine is 15 1/4" with the feet totally screwed in. There is no cabinet above the unit. You would not be able to put cups on the top nor raise the reservoir flap if under a 16" cabinet. Not sure about clearance if you plumb it. BTW I love this machine. Its a brute and always perfect pulls.

        The PID usually works better in temperature management than a pressurstat which has a slightly wider variation or delay before kicking the heating element on.

        Some people question if it is worth it to have the PID. We believe it does offer a better temperature control, but not as good as a dual boiler. The heat exchanger espresso machines, like the ECM Profi Techika PID espresso machines do offer quicker warm up times over double boilers and more efficiency in the steaming/frothing function. Please call us,during business hours, to discuss your best options for your needs.
