The profitec one will be available soon and the ECM at around the end of June.

Note: I still don't have a final ETA on the updated handle for the Profitec models.
Thanks for the reply, Todd. It would be fetching if the ECM's handle matched the brew lever! I see that ECM is moving their joysticks to the chrome-capped design as well (as per the Technika Profi V), so I think it would be great for the flow controller to follow suit, even if it came at a premium cost.

Would the device be compatible with the Synchronika as well, or is there an ECM-specific version in the works?
Yes, the device will work with the Synchronika and we will have the upgrade ready soon. I expect "soon", to be in about two weeks.

Sorry for the delay. The issue is getting a handle that will turn 360 degrees so there is no limitation to the control of the flow.

We did have a really nice sample with that handle that you described. But, with it we did not get enough rotation on the control, so its a no go on that one. A new handle has been designed and Michael and ECM is getting ready to ship it.

Hi Todd,
Could we have the 360 degrees parts for the previous order? It's really important for the wide range control.
Thank you.

Todd, is there any news on the updated flow control knob for the Profitec 700 and since I'm asking for the Synchronica for those owners?

Thanks for asking.
Hey Todd,

Is there a difference in approach or any limitation with using the flow control device on a PRO 600, since it is a vibe pump machine?

Also any updates on when more FC's will be in stock?

Thanks!

I've got one on pre-order. I spoke to Whole Latte Love yesterday and was told that they're now expecting to have them in 2 to 4 weeks.

I'm sorry but I am not sure about the thread size right now. But I'll get that for you.

I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Any idea on the updated flow control handle for the Profitec Pro 700?
