Link to the Contact page for Nichols Electronics Company, your supplier of digital electronic music boxes for ice cream truck vendor operators since 1957. Nichols Electronics Company manufactures ice cream music chime equipment for novelty street vending operations, and ice cream truck vendor operators, that provide novelty, soft serve ice cream to their customers. The wholesale products noted here are ideal for chime box operations, using the mark iv unit to provide chime music (via the chime box) to increase the effectiveness of your ice cream equipment in your street vending operations and thus letting you afford even more ice cream supplies to provide full capability for your ice cream equipment. Ice cream vending is very competitive, and without ice cream music boxes, using a quality chime, you will find your competition needing more trips to the wholesale vendors to get ice cream supplies for their ice cream equipment while you find sales a novelty. Don't be a novelty, equip your ice cream trucks with a mark iv or digital ii chime box unit and move some product! Ice cream trucks used in ice cream vending need ice cream music to meet the requirements imposed by wholesale providers in minimum requirements for ice cream supplies for their soft serve ice cream operations. So, fire up that chime box, move some equipment and meet your goals. Soft serve ice cream is your friend, when moving your ice cream trucks out to do their ice cream vending. The digital II is another fine unit you should consider when selecting ice cream vending equipment for your ice cream truck, or if they are your contractors, your ice cream truck vendor operators.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE DIGITAL II

 

(MARK IV INSTRUCTIONS AVAILABLE SOON)

 

 

 DIGITAL II INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

 

The Digital II  Chime  Model  was designed for use on 12-Volt  Negative  Ground  electrical systems only. Do not connect it to positive ground systems because the unit will not operate. Most of the American made (and foreign) cars and trucks built since 1956 have negative ground systems, but if in doubt, check with your dealer.

 

Use the mounting brackets on the case to secure the chime to any handy mount-

ing  position under  the dash or on the firewall. The mounting brackets can be reversed if desired by removing the case from the chime and replacing it in an inverted position. The mounting screws will effectively ground the chime when screwed into any metal surface of the vehicle that is connected to the vehicle chassis.  However if the chime is to be mounted to a non-metallic surface or temporarily installed, such as in a glove box, it is then necessary to run a jumper Wire from the case of the chime unit to a suitable ground. The ground can be any metal part of the vehicle that contacts the chassis.

 

Connect the electrical lead wire (red wire) from the chime to any 12-volt positive source.  This can be to a fuse block, ignition switch or a wire coming from the

Positive (red) post of the battery.

 

Any 8 or 4 ohm horn type, public address speaker can be used with the Digital II model. However if 2 speakers are to be connected to the chime unit in parallel, they should both be of 8 ohm's impedance, as the total load should not be less than 4 ohms. Mount the speaker in any convenient location. Use ordinary household lamp cord to extend the speaker wires if necessary. It is good policy to solder all connections, but solderless connectors (wire nuts) may be used if properly secured.  Plug the speaker wire into the jack located on the rear of the chime.  The chime is now ready to operate, turn on the power switch and set the volume control to the desired level.

 

The Digital II Model generates music by electronic synthesis and the unit is designed to be virtually maintenance free. Consequently it contains no moving or user serviceable parts within.  Like all electronic equipment it is sensitive to moisture.  Special care must be taken when washing the vehicle to ensure that water does not enter the chime unit.
