The technical FIELD

This invention relates to machines for performing transactions (ATMs).

The LEVEL of TECHNOLOGY

Machines to perform transactions include machines to perform banking operations (ATMs). Common type of ATM is an ATM type "automatic teller" (ATM). ATMs can be used to carry out the transaction (for example, cash withdrawal, deposits, receiving information about the balance of funds on Bank accounts, pay bills and transfer funds between accounts. ATMs type "automatic teller and ATM machines of other types can be used for issuing payment instruments or documents, for example, money, tickets, documents on receipt of goods or services, receipts, checks, documents with information about participation in the games, receipts or other means. Although ATM of many types, including ATMs type "automatic teller" by customers, managing ATMs of other types can implement the service providers. These ATMs can be used by service providers to provide cash banknotes or sheets or documents of other types when performing transactions. In this description, the term "ATM" should be interpreted as any ATM, capable vol is LNAT transaction, containing the transactions of transfer of funds, with a value in monetary terms.

Popular brand of ATM is an ATM / cash machine, manufactured by the "Diebold, Incorporated, which owns the rights to the present invention. These cash machines capable of polling the issuance of means of payment, for example, in the form of sheets, users of ATM. Used in ATMs listopadowy mechanism includes a capture mechanism, which feeds or "captures" the leaves, usually on one piece, from a stack of sheets stored inside the ATM. Means of payment, for example, sheets can be placed in a special container, for example, in the cassette or in a box. Cassettes for the means of payment can be made in such a way that adapted to work in conjunction with a specific mechanism to retrieve the payment of funds available in the cash. Cassette for payment of funds may be an integral part of the system of issuing means of payment. Loading or filling of cartridges means of payment can be carried out in places remote from the ATM, and in terms of providing security. Can be made transporting tapes in the machine. Cassettes provide the advantage of quick boot in ATMs large sums of money. Also what may be possible interchangeability of tapes between ATMs, with the release mechanism of the payment of funds of the same type. An example of a cassette adapted for use in ATM / cash machine, disclosed in U.S. patent No. 4113140, the disclosure of which is incorporated into this description by reference.

Can be made to transport the captured sheets through one or more means of transport inside the ATM and, ultimately, their delivery to the user. Capture mechanism used in some machines company "Diebold", described in U.S. patent No. 5577720, the disclosure of which is incorporated into this description by reference. The capture mechanism includes a rotating gripping element containing multiple cylindrical sections along the shaft. Each cylindrical section contains a segment with a high coefficient of friction along the length of the circumference. These segments with a high coefficient of friction are of such size and placed in such a way that after each rotation of the gripping element, the extreme bill that is located on the border of the end of the stack is exposed to a moving segment with a high coefficient of friction. Such exposure causes the destruction of the extreme banknotes from the stack and which engages with the moving cylindrical sections of the gripping element.

Next to each of the cylindrical sections to the life of the element and in the direction of rotation of the gripping element relative to the stack when capturing banknotes are many lestatdelc elements. Listootdelki element is usually located in such a way that is associated with each of the cylindrical sections gripping element due to the fit. Each listootdelki element is usually round and does not rotate with the rotation of the gripping element in the direction of the capture of banknotes. Listootdelki element prevents removing from a stack of all bills, except in extreme banknotes, when the rotation of the gripping element. This operation listootdelki element, at which he normally prevents the flow of bundles of all bills, except in extreme banknotes, due to the fact that the force applied breathtaking element directly to an extreme bill that is higher than the force of resistance exerted listootdelki element to the extreme bill. However, because of the banknote in the stack, except in extreme banknotes are not in direct engagement with a gripping element, the resistance force listootdelki element acting on these banknotes, normally prevents movement of other banknotes from the stack.

Support for each of lestatdelc elements can be provided through mechanisms of unilateral coupling. These mechanisms one-way clutch prevents rotation lestatdelc elements in response to force applied to l stoudemayer elements when moving the gripping element to grip the banknote. However, the one-way clutch connected with each listootdelki element allows each listootdelki element to rotate in the direction opposite to the direction in which listootdelki element is forced to move during a seizure. This is useful in situations where the device detection dual banknotes discovered that through listootdelki element has been more than one banknote. In these cases, the controller operating in the ATM, causes rotation of the gripping element in the direction opposite to the direction in which the gripping element is usually moving in the capture of the banknote. During the movement of the gripping element in the opposite direction listootdelki element rotates in such a way that facilitates the movement of many sheets back in the direction of the stack. After made the move multiple sheets back in the direction of tutus and beyond listootdelki element, the controller causes the capture mechanism again to try to capture from a pack of one banknote.

In many existing ATMs manufactured by the patent holder of the present invention, the banknote captured from the input device is moved by means of transport, described in U.S. patent No. 5342165, RA is the opening of which is included in the present description by reference. Such means of transportation have many tapes of conveyor generally parallel to each other and spatially separated in a perpendicular direction, which moves the banknote which engages with them. Between each pair of adjacent conveyor belts is protruding element. The protruding element is usually at least on the level of incoming engages the sheet surfaces of adjacent conveyor belts. As a result, the sheets are caught in the clamped state between the protruding elements and the conveyor belt. Such arrangement of the sheets between the two elements provides the movement of the sheets together with a moving conveyor belts in selected places in the ATM. For example, as shown in the description of said patent, the leaves that are in engagement with the conveyor belt, move in a pack. After the stack of sheets accumulated, a packet is injected into engagement with the belts of the conveyor, so that it can be moved to grant the user of the ATM.

Describes the mechanisms listopadova devices and means of transportation are very reliable and widely used in ATMs. However, sometimes problems can occur during capture and transportation of the sheets. In some cases, the leaves may have a relatively high surface n the attraction and affinity to the adjacent sheets. This may prevent easy separation of the extreme banknotes from the stack of sheets. In the alternative case the banknote may be worn or stained, which impairs its frictional properties. In such cases, extreme banknote may be more resistant to forces applied by the segment with a high coefficient of friction on the exciting element, and cannot be easily separated from the package. In alternative situations, the capture mechanism can capture sheet of this type, which is plasticized or is reduced for any reason frictional properties relative to the segment with a high coefficient of friction at an exciting element. In such cases, it may be difficult to provide a secure grip extreme banknotes from the stack.

Difficulty gripping the sheets can also occur due to wear or malfunction. After prolonged use of segments with a high coefficient of friction on an exciting element may occur wear. This leads to the fact that the segments provide less traction force to move at the banknote. Alternatively or in addition, the segments with a high coefficient of friction may get dirty during use, which may also have the effect of reducing the frictional properties of the exciting items the NTA. Box for bills in which to store the banknotes, also create a bias force holding the extreme bill associated with exciting due to the fit. As a result of damage or wear mechanism, creating a bias force may not ensure the creation of an equally large force, bias extreme bill to ensure that it engages with a gripping element, which may be desirable to capture sheets with a high degree of reliability.

In case of problems during the capture of the banknote exciting element of the bill cannot move in coordinated relation with the segments with a high coefficient of friction on the cylindrical sections of the gripping element. Segments with a high coefficient of friction can rotate past the extreme banknotes, usually leaving at the banknote in the stack. When this situation occurs, the ATM controller usually takes repeated attempts to capture the banknote. If the note cannot be retrieved from the stack, ATM / cash machine, in accordance with its program, provides a supply of banknotes from other sources through other gripping mechanisms available ATM. Alternatively, the ATM may reveal the presence of faults and may be transferred outside the state. In any case, a long time is I perform the transaction or complete failure of the execution of a user transaction is a significant inconvenience for the user of the ATM.

Banknotes with properties, worse than the optimal, can also cause problems during transportation inside the ATM. The banknotes that have become wet or contaminated, can adhere to the protruding elements and the conveyor belt in the means of transportation will not be able to move them. Banknotes that are slippery or having excessively low coefficient of friction may not create a sufficient bond strength with moving conveyor belts and will not move in coordinated relation with the conveyor belts. Similarly, excessively worn or soft banknotes can not achieve the normal traction with the tapes of the conveyor and will be stuck in the means of transportation or would not be able to move in it for other reasons.

These conditions also represent a potential delay transaction or transfer of the ATM outside the state. The problem of jamming of banknotes in the means of transportation can also cause the issuance of banknotes. In some cases, the banknote can be crumpled or damaged due to problems during transport.

Therefore, a need exists for improvements gripping mechanisms and means of transport of the sheets used in ATMs. In addition, there is a need for improved is enstvovanie used in ATMs gripping mechanisms and means of transport, which can be easily installed in existing ATMs to facilitate use with banknotes and leaves these types, which have a wider range of properties. In addition, there is a need for improvements cassettes for payment instruments that can be used in conjunction with the gripping mechanisms.

Disclosure of the invention described in the provisional patent applications U.S. No. 60/437636 from December 31, 2002 and No. 60/437637 from December 31, 2002, is incorporated into this description by reference.

Additional objectives of the present invention are disclosed in the section below, we describe the "Best mode of carrying out the invention and the claims.

In one of the embodiments of the present invention the aforementioned problems are solved by replacing the exciting element in the mechanism listopadova devices of the prior art or by the supply of it carried out by IDisposable, an alternative exciting element for the application of additional force to move the sheet from the stack in situations where you do not move the sheet spectacular element. In the embodiment, sheets, captured by the action exciting element, banknotes are captured from a pack. Border tutu is an extreme bill, which is engaged with a gripping element.

An alternative exciting element contains at least one movable siteplease plot. Mobile siteplease section is movable relative to the rotating gripping element. An alternative exciting element operates so that when the rotation of the gripping element around its axis to capture the banknote siteplease section is engaged with the capture extreme bill. In those cases, when the gripping element is rotated so that the moving gripping element is larger than the displacement at the banknote, siteplease plot makes more moving outward in the radial direction relative to the gripping element. This movement SitePlayer section in an outward direction provides the application of the increasing strength of the coupling to the extreme ban the note. This increasing adhesive force leads to the creation of additional forces tending to move the extreme banknote relative to the stack.

Alternative gripping element includes a Cam surface and a Cam site pusher. The host Cam follower is operative connection with SitePlayer plot. The Cam surface and the site of a Cam follower due to the interaction relocate SitePlayer area inside in the radial direction, when necessary, to the moment siteplease the section will close with listootdelki element. This prevents collision SitePlayer plot with listootdelki element and prevents damage to the mechanism of the feeding device, and roaming through his notes.

The present invention further comprises means for transporting sheets, used for the transport of banknotes or sheets that were submitted from the mechanism of the feeding device. Means for transporting sheets contains many of the tapes that contain many parallel conveyor belts, spatially separated in a perpendicular direction. Plots of the speaker element are essentially parallel to the conveyor belts in between. This configuration allows you to move the sheets so the m way they are sandwiched between the belts of the conveyor and the parts of the speaker element and associated with them. To provide more reliable travel of the sheets, at least one of the regular tape substitute alternatively of the tape. While conventional tapes usually have a continuous smooth surface, which engages the sheet, an alternative tape, shown as an example, contains at least one, and in the preferred embodiment, the multiple protrusions that protrude from the surface of the belt meshing with the sheet. As a result, the sheet jammed due to sticking to the parts of the speaker element, engages with the tabs and forcibly moved in a means of transportation. Similarly, those leaves that do not have sufficient frictional engagement with the conveyor belts to move them along the means of transport, engages with the tabs and forced to move with them. This minimizes the risk that the leaves get stuck in the means of transportation, and provides higher reliability of the ATM.

An exciting element and tape in their views, which are given by way of example, can be installed in new ATMs or existing ATMs without significant additional VI is izmenenii ATMs. This can provide a quick and inexpensive improve the reliability of the ATM.

The communication device may be one or more devices of many types, which allow the ATM to communicate with other systems and devices to complete transactions. The device 26 may also contain a modem for exchanging messages over a data link or via a wireless communications network with one or more other computers that transfer data showing the transfer of funds in response to a transaction conducted at an ATM. In an alternative embodiment, the device 26 may include various types of network interfaces, line drivers or other devices suitable for providing connectivity between the ATM 10 and other computers and systems.

The ATM 10 also includes a variety of sensors used to measure various conditions in the ATM. For simplicity and ease of understanding these various sensors is presented in scheme component 28. ATM / cash machine equipped with a variety of sensors used for measuring the status of devices within the ATM and provide information about it in the controller 22.

In addition, the ATM 10 includes multiple actuators 30 and 32. Perform the global mechanisms may include multiple devices, which are, for example, motors, solenoids, cylinders, rotary actuators and devices of other types, driven in response to signals from controller 22. Numerous components inside the ATM are driven by actuators operatively associated with them. Actuators 30 and 32 schematically show a similar actuating mechanisms in ATM and facilitate understanding.

In the ATM 10 has four mechanisms 34, 36, 38 and 40 listopada devices. Each listopadowy mechanism in response to signals from controller 22 captures the leaves. The leaves can be selectively captured, usually by one, from a stack of sheets, for example, bundles 42, which is shown next to the mechanism 34 listopadova device. Each of the bundles of sheets associated with the corresponding mechanism listopadova device, placed in a box or cassette. The box is designed for use in ATM, can represent such a box, as described in U.S. patent No. 4871085, the disclosure of which is incorporated into this description by reference. Box 44 accommodates the sheets associated with the mechanism 34 of the feeding device. Similarly, box 46 accommodates the sheets captured by the mechanism 36 of the feeding device. Box 48 accommodates the sheets fed by the feeding mechanism 3 devices and the box 50 accommodates the sheets fed by the mechanism 40 of the feeding device. As schematically depicted in box 44, so that the bundle 42 of the sheet engages with the mechanism listopadova device, it shifts the bias mechanism 52.

Boxes or cassettes 44, 46, 48, 50 are used for placing the means of payment with a predefined value, such as money, including banknotes or banknotes or sheets. These notes can have a different value of the notes, which gives the possibility to have different amounts of money. In an alternative embodiment, one or more boxes or cassettes may contain a means of payment or sheets of other types, for example, coupons, documents on receipt of goods or services, tickets, money orders, cheques, documents with information about the participation in games or other documents that have a value in monetary terms. The controller carries out the selective control mechanism of the feeding device in response to input from the client data and information obtained from the systems with which the ATM communicates that causes selective feeding sheets of boxes with different means of payment.

Banknote released from the boxes into engagement with the first means 54 transportation of banknotes. The first tool 54 transportation ban the music, detailed description of which is given below, contains many continuous tape 56. Tapes pass around sets of rollers 58, which results in movement of the tape and serve as guides for them. As schematically shown in Fig. 1 through sheet fed from the mechanism 36 of the feeding device, the sheet engages with the adjacent strips 56 of the conveyor and are moved in engagement with them up to the second means 60 transportation.

The second tool 60 transportation similar to the means of transportation of U.S. patent No. 5342165, the disclosure of which is incorporated into this description by reference. The tool 60 transportation also contains many continuous tapes 62 passing around sets of rollers 64. Under the action of the rollers 64, the tape 62 is driven so that the banknote passing up tool 54 transportation, first introduced in engagement with the tape 62 of the conveyor and collected in the stack 66. In response to the controller 22, when in the stack 66 collected desirable the number of the banknotes of the bundle is moved, and the tape 62 are driven by moving the stack 66 to the hole 68 for the user in the housing 12 ATM. When the banknote is moved to the hole 68, the controller controls the actuating device in such a way that it actuates the valve 70, so that the packet can pass n is the Rouge through the hole. As a result, the user is given the opportunity to receive sheets from the ATM. After detecting that the user took the packet out of the hole, the controller may control to close the valve 70 in order to minimize the risk of unauthorized tampering with the ATM.

The device shown in connection connection with the ATM 10 are typical devices that can meet at these ATMs. Numerous additional device or alternative device types, for example, the device receiving deposits, reader documents, devices receiving banknotes, print tickets and other additional devices may be included in the ATMs used in connection with the present invention.

The mechanism 34 listopadova device shown in more detail in Fig. 14. In the ATM 10 all mechanisms of the feeding device are the same, so the detailed description of only one of them. The mechanism 34 of the feeding device includes a gripping element 72. A gripping element 72 is selectively in rotation around the axis 74 in response to a signal from the controller 22. Support for banknotes or other sheets in the stack 42 serves as a bearing surface 76, ending in the area, located near the exciting element. Border tutu is one who by extreme bill 78, located near the exciting element 72. At each turn exciting element at a banknote, which is the current at this point in time and is located on the border of the stack is moved and released from the stack and fed into the tool 54 transportation.

A gripping element 72 has an outer boundary surface 80. The outer boundary surface 80 is generally associated with listootdelki elements 82 due to the fit. As described above, listootdelki elements 82 does not rotate in the clockwise direction shown in Fig. 14. But listootdelki elements 82 will rotate in a counterclockwise direction due to the action of the respective one-way clutches, as described below.

After lestatdelc elements 82 further along is the device 84 detect double notes. The device 84 detection dual banknotes can be a mechanical sensor, a radiation sensor, sound sensor, or other sensor types, suitable to determine was whether past listootdelki element to the means for transporting one or many banknotes. After detection devices dual banknotes further along is a pair of withdrawing rollers 86. Take the rollers are in engagement with the sheets moved far enough away from the pack, so they went into the Zats the pressure with rollers. The rollers driven by the drive in response to signals from controller 22 are in engagement with the sheets and move them in a means of transportation. This configuration of the feed mechanism of the device is shown as an example, and in other embodiments of the invention can be used in other configurations.

As described in U.S. patent No. 5577720, normal operation of the feed mechanism of the device involves the rotation of the gripping element in response to signals from controller 22 during capture operations. When it is desirable to capture extreme banknotes 78, exciting element 72 is rotated in a counterclockwise direction, as shown in Fig. 14, about the axis 74. This is done by actuation of the actuator or other similar device. Rotation of the gripping element causing forced displacement at the banknote 78 out of the pack. Listootdelki elements 82 counteract the movement of the extreme banknotes as listootdelki elements do not move in a clockwise direction, as shown in Fig. 14. Due to the presence of surface area gripping element 72, a member in engagement with the extreme bill, and frictional properties of the outer boundary surface 80, power, forcibly moving at bill 78 out of the pack, usually higher than the force with which the disobedience lestatdelc elements. This is because listootdelki elements have a smaller surface area and/or a different coefficient of friction, and this leads to the fact that the resistance force is less than the driving force of an exciting element. However, listootdelki elements provide sufficient resistance to prevent movement of the packs, basically, all bills, except in extreme banknotes 78. This is because of the banknote in the stack, except in extreme banknotes are not in direct engagement with the exciting element and not to the same extent exposed to forces causing their forced displacement from the stack.

When extreme bill 78 is moved from the stack, its thickness can be controlled by device 84 detect double notes. The device 84 detection dual banknotes operatively connected with the controller, and at least one signal from the detection devices dual banknotes indicates that one or more banknotes was stretched out from the pack. If there are many notes, under the control of the controller exciting element stops rotating in the counterclockwise direction shown in Fig. 14, and instead starts to rotate in the clockwise direction. When the gripping element 72 is rotated in the direction of the clockwise direction about to pull the sheets back in the stack 42, listootdelki elements 82 have the opportunity together to rotate in the counterclockwise direction shown in Fig. 14. This is due to the action of one-way clutches associated with each of lestatdelc elements. The result is the return of the sheets in the stack. After that, the controller 22 again brings an exciting element 72 to rotate in a counterclockwise direction and again tries to capture one extreme banknotes from the stack.

If the device 84 detection dual banknotes detects the passage of only one banknote of the bundle, the controller actuates the actuator or other suitable transfer mechanism, ensuring the engagement of the leading roller 86 with the sheet and move them into the tool 54 transportation. The operations described as performed in response to a controller action, given only as an example. In some embodiments, the controller may provide the dual direction of the banknotes in the container for the rejected banknotes or other storage instead of multiple attempts to capture one of the banknote.

The exciting element is shown in more detail in Fig. 2 and Fig. 3. A gripping element 72 has a Central shaft 88. The shaft serves as a support for three separate cylindrical sections. These cylindrical sections contain the Central part is OK 90. With the first side in the direction along the axis of the cylindrical section 90 is first outer section 92. In the opposite axial direction from the Central cylindrical section is second outer section 94.

As shown in Fig. 3, each of the cylindrical sections 90, 92 and 94 has a corresponding one of lestatdelc elements 82 that is associated with it due to the fit, which are indicated, respectively, by the reference positions 96, 98 and 100. Each of lestatdelc elements has an associated one-way clutch 102, 104 and 106, operatively connected with him. As described above, each of the one-way clutch allows listootdelki element to rotate in one direction only. Listootdelki element is able to rotate only when the leaves pull back in the pack. However, when capturing sheets listootdelki elements, essentially, remain motionless.

As schematically shown in Fig. 3, the shaft 88 is operatively connected to the actuator 108, which selectively rotates the shaft in response to signals from the controller. In Fig. 3 also shows that listootdelki element 96, which is connected with the Central section 90 through the tight, slightly displaced by angle relative to lestatdelc elements 98 and 100, which are connected through contact with external sites, respectively, 92 and 94. If rootdelay element 96 has a forward angle relative to the other lestatdelc elements, so during capture banknotes went into engagement with the Central listootdelki element to engage with listootdelki elements 98 and 100. In other embodiments, can be used other approaches, other configurations and types lestatdelc elements and exciting elements.

As shown in Fig. 2, the outer boundary surface 80 exciting element contains the external surface 110 of the cylindrical section 90, and the outer surface 112 of the cylindrical section 92 and the outer surface 114 of the cylindrical section 94. The outer surface 110 includes a ribbed section 116 with a relatively high coefficient of friction. The remainder of the outer surface 110 represents a portion 118 with a relatively lower coefficient of friction. Section 116 with a high coefficient of friction provides the application of traction to the extreme banknote, located on the border of the stack, which is usually sufficient for engagement with the extreme bill and to move it out of the pack. Section 118 with a low coefficient of friction can usually move relatively extreme banknotes, without causing movement of the banknote of the bundle. This construction provides reliable capture of one banknote at every turn exciting element on one turn. In addition, this design which provides gaps between the notes, consistently captured from a pack. The presence of such clearance facilitates the recognition of banknotes and manipulation.

Similarly, the outer surface 112 of the cylindrical section 92 contains a ribbed section 120 with a relatively high coefficient of friction, located on its outer surface. The outer surface 112 also contains a plot 122 with a relatively lower coefficient of friction, located around the site with a high coefficient of friction. The angular position of the section 120 with a high coefficient of friction usually corresponds to the situation of section 116 with a high coefficient of friction on the Central section 90. As with other areas with relatively high and relatively low coefficient of friction, section 120 with a high coefficient of friction provides the application of force to the extreme bill, sufficient to engage and move out of the pack, while the plot with a relatively lower coefficient of friction can move while in engagement with the extreme bill, not causing its removal from the package. Similarly, as shown in Fig. 2, the cylindrical section 94 also contains a plot 124 is normally high coefficient of friction and the section 126 with a lower coefficient of friction. The angular position of the plots with high and with low friction on the cylindrical Uch the dimension 94 corresponds to the angular position of sites with high and with low friction on the other cylindrical parts exciting element.

As shown in partial section in Fig. 3, the section 120 with a high coefficient of friction cylindrical section 92 has an arcuate segment 128. Arcuate segment 128 is a plot of the width of the cylindrical section along the axis toward the outer side of the gripping element. Support for arcuate segment 128 is movable element 130. As described in detail below, the movable element 130 is movable relative to the cylindrical section and an exciting element to move the arcuate segment 128 to the outside in the radial direction relative to the boundary surface bordering the exciting element. The cylindrical section 92 typically has an I-shaped in cross section and contains a plot 132 Central jumpers. In terms of section 132 of the jumper ends with section 134 of the wide edge, which is the backbone for located on it outer surface 112. The movable element 130 can move in the recess 136 on the first longitudinal side of the element 132 in the form of jumpers.

In the recess 140, which is on the opposite along the axis away from the recess 136, is located the Cam 138. The Cam 138 is connected with the shaft 88, which serves as a support for him. The Cam 138 is also connected to the node 142 of the support element, which serves as a support for him. The node 142 reference e is ementa holds the Cam 138 stationary during rotation of the shaft 88 and a cylindrical section 92.

The cylindrical section 94 contains structural elements which are substantially the mirror image of structural elements associated with the cylindrical section 92. Area with a high coefficient of friction of the outer surface 114 includes an arcuate segment 144, support for which is movable element 146. The movable element 146 is located in the recess 148, the boundary of which is the plot 150 jumpers and section 152 of the wide edge of the cylindrical section 94.

The Cam 154 is located in the recess 156 on the opposite along the axis away from the recess 148. The Cam 154 is connected with the shaft 88, which serves him as a support, and the node 158 of the support element holds it stationary relative to the shaft.

As the functioning of cylindrical sections 92 and 94 of the exciting element is similar, the explanation of the functioning of the exciting element contained in the description with reference to the cylindrical section 94. In Fig. 4 shows that the segment 144 passes through a hole 160 in section 152 of the wide edge of the cylindrical section 94. Given as an example of the movable element 146 is usually made having a horseshoe shape and is held at an exciting element via a pivoting connection 162. Support for rolling element 146 is adjustable connection passing through the participants is to jumper 150.

The border of the Cam 154 is surface 164 of the Cam. On the movable element 146 is fixed section 166 of the Cam follower located at the end opposite to the arcuate segment 144. Plot the Cam follower passes through a hole 168 in the area 150 jumpers. This allows the section 166 of the Cam follower to engage with the surface 164 of the Cam 154. It is clear that this design provides the ability to control the position of the arcuate segment 144 when the rotation of the gripping element due to the fact that the Cam follower 166 is engaged with the surface 164 of the Cam.

The explanation of the functioning of the gripping element 72 described with reference to Fig. 5 and Fig. 6. As shown in Fig. 5, in normal operation, the exciting element areas with a high coefficient of friction of the exciting elements engages with extreme bill 78, located on the border of the stack. Areas with a high coefficient of friction to move the bill, mainly being engaged with it and with the same speed as the speed of the gripping element, by listootdelki element 82, pulling at the banknote of the bundle. During this normal operation of the banknote is moved in synchronized relation with the movement of the outer boundary surface 80 : atyaasaa element 72. As a result, in normal operation, the extreme speed of the banknote of the arrow N, essentially corresponds to the speed of the outer surface 80 exciting element of the arrow P. the Arrow F shows the direction attached to the power pack, which holds extreme bill 78 in engagement with a gripping element 72.

In Fig. 6 shows the operation of the gripping element 72 in the case where it is impossible to move at bill 78 is not in consistent communication with spectacular element. In such cases, the speed and displacement of the gripping element are larger than the corresponding speed and the corresponding movement at the banknote 78. Arcuate segments 128, 144 with a high coefficient of friction that serve as sites providing engagement, because they can move relative to the gripping element 72, strive to maintain engagement with the extreme bill. This is shown in Fig. 6 arcuate segment 144. Because siteplease plot arcuate segment 144 remains in the engaged position with extreme bill and is movable relative to the gripping element, when the angular displacement exciting element exceeds moving SitePlayer plot segment 144, the segment 144 is moved outward in the radial is upravlenii with respect to the outer boundary surface 80. Further movement SitePlayer area outward in the radial direction relative to the axis of rotation 74 increases the traction force applied to the extreme bill, causing the forced displacement of the tutu. From the following detailed description of the rolling element it is clear that siteplease plots tend to move further outward in the radial direction, providing increased traction with the increase of the difference between the movement of the gripping element and SitePlayer plot. This increased force acting on the extreme bill that seeks to make extreme bill move through listootdelki elements 82 in order to allow the capture of the banknote. Because of the extreme bill begins to move in coordinated relation with exciting, saralaya areas can begin to move inward in the radial direction. In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, the interaction plot of the Cam follower and the Cam surface moves saralaya plots inside in the radial direction to the level of the external boundary surface 80 to the time when siteplease sections are rotated to a position in which they are located next to listootdelki elements 82. Ecogarantie damage saralaya plots and banknotes.

In Fig. 7-10 shows an example of the functioning of the gripping element 72 relative to the cylindrical section 94 of the exciting element. It is clear that the cylindrical section 92 is its mirror image and works in a similar way during capture. As shown in Fig. 7, a gripping element 72 is rotated in the direction of the arrow P. Assuming that the extreme bill logged in engagement with SitePlayer area contained in the segment 144, does not move synchronously with exciting segment 144 is rotated in the first direction around the swivel 162. This is due to the fact that the segment 144 is engaged with the bill, and its angular displacement does not correspond to the angular displacement exciting element 72 around the axis 74. Segment 144 is moved outward in the radial direction relative to the axis 74. Move segment 144 to the outside in the radial direction is limited by engagement of section 166 of the Cam follower with section 164 of the Cam 154.

It is clear that moving SitePlayer end segment 144 in the direction of the outside leads to the application of increasing the adhesion forces to the extreme bill in response to something that does not move far banknotes exciting. In addition, siteplease plot segment 144 is moved still gave the more outward in the radial direction with increasing difference between the movement of the gripping element and the movement of the banknote. This movement in the outward direction may continue up until the segment 144 will fail the entire length of its stroke, limited by the Cam surface.

As shown in Fig. 8, if initially there was no movement at banknotes in consistent communication with spectacular element, upon further rotation of the gripping element siteplease plot arcuate segment 144, essentially, remains protruding outward in the radial direction with respect to the outer boundary surface of the gripping element. This leads to the creation of additional forces seeking to ensure the movement of the banknote of the bundle. If, after the bill begins to move, the movement of the banknote will begin to exceed the moving gripping element, siteplease plot arcuate segment 144 will be drawn inward in the radial direction to the outer boundary surface 80. However, after siteplease plot went outside in the radial direction, it remains protruding outwards by an amount which provides a mesh plot of a Cam follower 166 with the surface 164 of the Cam.

As shown in Fig. 9, as a gripping element 72 is rotated further to the position in which siteplease plot arcuate segment 144 when lizetta to listootdelki elements, the profile of the surface 164 of the Cam causes the section 166 of the Cam follower causes the rotation of the rolling element 146 relative to the swivel 162. As shown in Fig. 9, the surface of the Cam tends to rotate the movable element 146 in the direction of rotation around the swivel 162 opposite to the direction in which the movable element does rotate, so that the arcuate segment has come out. As a result, as when the rotation of the gripping element arcuate segment is approaching listootdelki element, the arcuate segment tends to move inward in the radial direction to the outer boundary surface 80.

As shown in Fig. 10, after an exciting element 72 is turned to the point at which siteplease plot segment 144 is associated with listootdelki element by adhesion, the surface 164 of the Cam and section 166 of the Cam follower caused retraction SitePlayer plot by moving the rolling element 146. At this point the outer surface of the segment 144 is moved so that it matches the external boundary surface 80 exciting element. In addition, since siteplease plot on the segment 144 is pulled inward in the radial direction, siteplease section provides Mgr is extreme respect for bill decreasing the adhesion forces when moving at banknotes between exciting and listootdelki element. This decreasing power not only prevents collision between SitePlayer plot and listootdelki elements, but also prevents possible damage to the mechanism, and also captured banknotes.

In the variant shown in Fig. 10, there is a section 170 limiter on the movable element 146. Section 170 of the limiter is engaged with the surface 172 on the border of the recess 148. Plot limiter prevents you from moving SitePlayer end segment 144 inside in the radial direction, essentially, beyond the outer boundary surface 80 exciting element.

It is clear that this option is the implementation of an exciting element to ensure the application of the increasing strength of the coupling to the extreme bill in response to that extreme bill does not move together with exciting. As a result, additional grip is applied only in cases when it is required to move at the banknotes of the bundle. In those cases, when the banknotes stained, have a high surface tension or slippery surface, an additional driving force is applied automatically. In addition, this variant exciting element also provides the ability to compensate for wear or friction reduction in pollution, which may be the result of the atom prolonged use exciting element. This exciting element capable of providing compensation to those conditions, which otherwise could degrade the reliability of the capture of banknotes.

Although in the above embodiment, an exciting element siteplease area moves outward in the radial direction and provides more grip force based on the relative movement between the extreme bill and exciting element, in other embodiments can be used, for example, other devices and systems to determine the difference of the relative movement between the capture banknotes and exciting, and to move SitePlayer area for the application of additional force of the clutch in response to this. Although this embodiment uses a system of mechanical type, in other embodiments can be used in electronic and Electromechanical systems.

An additional useful aspect of the above options gripping element and its operation in relation to the mechanisms of issue is something that can be easily upgraded an existing ATM. This option provides the service technician the ability to access the internal area of the ATM, for example, by unlocking the door leading to the part which PR is dstanley a protected compartment. After gaining access to the mechanism for loading and unloading of banknotes, the service technician can remove the existing exciting element that does not contain signs saralaya sections, movable in the radial direction, and to establish in its place a gripping element 72. In this embodiment, the nodes 142 and 158 of the support elements are made with the possibility of entering into engagement with existing surfaces inside the ATM for holding pawls stationary during rotation of the gripping element. After the item is installed in the ATM door leading to the protected compartment is closed and locked.

A gripping element 72 has the same General profile, and exciting elements, not illustrative embodiment variant of the present invention. Thus, it is easy to install exciting element to improve the operation of the ATM. The software of the controller 22 also often do not need to change to adapt to the fixed gripping element 72. Except for those cases that are particularly described, the operation of the gripping element 72 from the point of view of movement and retraction of banknotes is similar to the operation of the replaceable gripping element.

Means for transporting banknotes, for example with adsto 54 transportation of banknotes, contains features that reduce the risk of jamming or clogging of banknotes in the means of transportation. As described above with reference to Fig. 1, the tool 54 transportation of banknotes contains many continuous tapes 56 passing around sets of rollers 58. The tool 54 transportation may contain tape running the length of a vehicle, or it may contain multiple tapes, covering the areas of transport. In the above embodiment, the continuous tape are arranged so that the means for transporting includes many essentially parallel conveyor belts. These conveyor belt shown in Fig. 12 as the tape 174, 176 and 178 of the conveyor. Each of the belts of the conveyor passes along the longitudinal direction of a vehicle in which you are moving the sheets. The conveyor belt is moved by operation of the actuator or similar transfer mechanism, which is controlled in response to the controller 22 which drives the rollers that serve as a support for placed them on tape.

As shown in Fig. 12, in the intervals between each of the adjacent pairs of conveyor belts are areas 180, 182 of the speaker element, spatially separated in the transverse direction. It Is Evident From Fig. 12 is readily seen that each of the tapes TRANS is artera has a first surface, member engages the sheet, which is shown as a surface 184 of the tape 174 conveyor which is turned in the first direction of orientation of the surface to the sheet 186 passing in the means of transportation. Each of the sections of the speaker element contains the second surface, which engages the sheet depicted as surface 188 of section 180 of the speaker element. The second surface 188, which is in engagement with the sheet turned in the second direction of orientation of the surface that is opposite the first direction of orientation of the surface. It is clear that the first and second directions of orientation of the surface, which are, respectively, the surface of the conveyor belts, which are included in engagement with the sheet, and plots of the speaker element, essentially, are perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of movement of the sheets.

It Is Evident From Fig. 12 and Fig. 13 it is clear that the configuration of the belts of the first conveyor and plot element in engagement with the sheet such that the sheet is moved to an intermediate position between the first surface of the tape conveyor meshing with the sheet, and the second surface plots of the speaker element included in engagement with the sheet being associated with them, is subjected to deformation, getting a wave-like form, so that the sheet is in sacal the Institute with conveyor belts. As a result, during movement of the feed conveyor moves the sheet 186 which engages with them.

It Is Evident From Fig. 14 it is clear that the tool 54 transporting sheets can accept sheets, for example, the sheet 190, through holes, for example, through the opening 192, and that the sheet passing through the hole in the plots of the speaker element, moves, being in engagement with the belts of the first conveyor, thus captured, being squeezed between the belts of the conveyor and the parts of the speaker element. Captured in this manner the sheet is forcibly moved together with the conveyor belts in the desired position within the ATM in response to signals from the controller.

As mentioned above, sometimes the sheets, for example, banknotes, stuck in the means of transportation of this type. This can occur due to the presence of various conditions, preventing the movement of banknotes in coordinated relation with the conveyor belts. In the embodiment of the present invention, the tape conventional type used in the means of transportation of this type, replaced by alternatives tapes, reducing the risk of jamming of sheets. In particular, while the famous bands usually have a smooth continuous surface, which engages the sheet, alternatives tapes used in VA is iance of the present invention, contain at least one protrusion having a length in the longitudinal direction, which acts in the first direction of orientation of the surface of the tape surface meshing with the sheet. In a more preferred embodiment of the present invention, such protrusions having a length in the longitudinal direction, are located on the first surface of the tape member in engagement with the sheet at a distance from each other at regular intervals. The presence of such protrusions, spaced in the longitudinal direction, ensures the engagement of the sheets, which otherwise could not move in the means of transportation, and moving them to the desired location.

In Fig. 11 shows the axonometric image of the tape 174 conveyor, the first surface 184 which member engages the sheet, rotated 180 degrees relative to the image shown in Fig. 13. The first surface 184, which is in engagement with the sheet, contains many tabs 194, spatially separated in the longitudinal direction. The protrusions 194 are mainly in the first direction of orientation of the surface, indicated by arrow 196. In the above embodiment, the protrusions 194 are deformable, resilient and spaced from each other a distance greater than the length of the sheets transported che is ez appropriate means of transportation in the longitudinal direction. This allows you to place the sheet along its length between adjacent protrusions, spaced in the longitudinal direction. However, it should be understood that in other embodiments, there may be protrusions with different properties, located at a shorter distance from each other. In other alternative embodiments, there may be tabs, located at a great distance from each other, even to the extent that they contain only one such lug on the continuous surface of the belt meshing with the sheet.

In embodiments implementing the present invention all of the tapes used in relation to the means of transportation, can contain created on their ledges. However, in some embodiments of the invention it may be desirable to replace alternatives tapes containing such ledges, only some of the tapes. For example, in the means of transportation, with three of the conveyor belt shown in Fig. 13, it may be desirable to replace the alternative tape only the middle of the tape. Alternatively, it may be desirable to replace the alternative tape two outer strips, leaving the average tape having, basically, a smooth continuous outer surface. Can be implemented by different approaches to the replacement of tape over the threaded depending on the specific type of the transported document.

As shown in Fig. 13, in embodiments implementing the present invention may have many tapes that are located in such a way that the protrusions protruding from the first surface of the tape included in engagement with the sheet, are mostly on the same line in the transverse direction. Thus, each of the protrusions, spaced in the longitudinal direction, largely retains the same spatial position relative to other tabs when moving tapes from transportation. In alternative embodiments, may contain tape installed so that any predefined relationship between the projections on each respective adjacent the ribbon is missing. A useful effect is provided in each of these cases, since the protrusions facilitate the transfer sheets in the means of transport.

It is clear that the configuration of the conveyor belt 174 with the protrusions, spaced in the longitudinal direction, which pass along the first surface of the belt meshing with the sheet shown only as an example. In other embodiments can be used in other configuration tabs. For example, in Fig. 15 shows the ribbon 198 conveyor. Tape 198 conveyor includes protrusions 200 in the form of a bubble. In Fig. 16 shows another alternative variations the t belt conveyor 202, which has a cone-shaped protrusions 204, located next to each other. In Fig. 17 shows another alternative belt conveyor 206. The belt conveyor 206 contains sawtooth protrusions 207. It is clear that these configurations ribbons and tabs are shown only as examples and that other embodiments may be used in other configurations.

Shown as an example, improved transportation options, relevant to the present invention, are intended for use in relation to existing means of transportation that move leaves, for example, banknotes, in the ATM. Improved tape is designed so that pass through existing sets of rollers inside ATMs and replace the existing tape means of transportation, having essentially smooth continuous surface included in engagement with the sheet around their perimeter. To improve performance means of transport in such ATM service technician should open the case of the ATM, for example, Opera and opening the door of the secure compartment. Then, the service technician can remove the existing belt of a vehicle with a set of rollers supporting and moving the tape. It is when the old tape removed from a means of transport, the installation of an alternative tape one described here types containing protrusions, spaced in the longitudinal direction, so that it was associated with a set of rollers that support it. Then, the service technician can close and lock the door protected compartment ATM. Then can be carried out not only forced displacement of the sheets in the means of transporting relatively smooth surface belt meshing with the sheet, but more forced displacement by engagement with the projections. It is clear that the tabs on the tapes provide additional coercive force, which is usually sufficient to move the leaves, which otherwise might slip or get stuck in the means of transport.

It is clear that in the embodiment of the invention described alternatives tape can be used both in the context of tool 54 transport and in relation to the tool 60 transportation. The principles of the present invention can also be applied to other devices that move leaves inside the ATM. For example, the tapes that contain the tabs of the type described here, the spatial visit the military in the longitudinal direction, can be applied to a system for moving a stack of sheets, which is, for example, the system described in U.S. patent No. 5507481, the disclosure of which is incorporated into this description by reference. In such means of transportation plots of the speaker element moving conveyor belt which move in coordinated relation with addressed to them by the tape conveyor and serve to transport bundles located between them. Alternatives tapes containing therein protruding areas, can be used to move the stack of sheets located between them, and allow for more reliable movement of such packs. As explained in the mentioned patent, such means of transport, in which the parts of the speaker element moving conveyor belt reliably move the bundle of bills or connected to each other sheets, for example, Bank books and cheque books inside the ATM.

The principles of the present invention can also be applied to other types of means of transport packs and sheets, including, for example, mechanisms for the accumulation and delivery of packages, are described, for example, in U.S. patent No. 5435542, the disclosure of which is also included in the present description by reference. P is incipi of the present invention can also be applied to other transport mechanisms. It is clear that the improved sheet feeder achieved through the use of the principles of the present invention, can be incorporated into ATMs with improved means of transportation to achieve high reliability for handling and feeding of sheets inside the ATM. It is also understood that in some embodiments of the invention improved capture functionality will be implemented without the improvement of the means of transport, and Vice versa. The principles of the present invention can be also applied to other configurations of exciting elements and devices, and means for transporting sheets.

In the embodiment of the invention, cassettes or boxes can be marked for identification and instructions contained in each content as a means of payment. For example, in a box with various payment tools to display data elements associated with the box and its contents, can be used mechanical buttons in a certain order. The use and function buttons indicator information boxes are described in detail in U.S. patent No. 4871085 included in the present description by reference. The layout of the buttons (or moving elements-indicators information the AI on cassette) can reflect the owner cassette, serial number of the cartridge and description of the means of payment (for example, the code of the denomination of bills, height, thickness). The layout of the buttons can be read by the ATM through the feeder means of payment. Buttons can be put into contact with the actuator of the electrical switch component feeding device. The contact surface of the buttons may include a coating of gold.

However, to change the layout of buttons, indicators, information may need to tape or carton was opened for service personnel access to the buttons. In addition, some schemes for the location of the buttons you may need to make some holes for the buttons remained empty without buttons. Therefore, there is a possibility of losing removed unused buttons during processing. There is a need to create a cartridge that provides the ability to leave it unused buttons and allows you to change the layout of the buttons, without requiring opening of the cassette.

In Fig. 18 shows a portion of a tape 208 for means of payment. The cassette includes a housing 210, the holes 212 for buttons and button 214. Buttons can have the speaker output end or head. Buttons can be elongated and have an axis. The position of the buttons can be changed (or adjusted or reconfiguring the but) to the corresponding change (or changes) the information on the tape, the mapped position of the buttons. Buttons can be moved along the axis (e.g., rotated) in the direction of the outward and inward relative to the housing of the cassette (or the outer surface of the cassette by rotating them. For example, to move the head button from the internal position or positions (e.g., recessed or pushed relative to the outer surface of the body) in the outer position or a position (for example, protruding outward from the outer surface of the housing, the button may be rotated counterclockwise approximately 90 degrees. Can be used segments or angles less than or greater than 90 degrees. The button to the outside, can be read or identified by the ATM. When the button is in the inner position, the button head may be flush with the outer surface of the cassette or inside relative to the outer surface. ATM can be performed in such a way that inside the button can't be read (or detected or recognized) by the ATM, when this button is located on the outside can be read.

The button can be made like a screw. The button can have the threads, which allow you to move it relative to the housing of the cassette. The head of the button may have a remedy in the form of a groove or slot, to enter the end of the regular surface is a company-sized unit, for example, a screwdriver. In an alternative embodiment, the button head may have a remedy in the form of unique grooves or protrusions, which requires a special tool which is engaged with the button and move it. Thus, for reasons of security, access to special tool may have authorized personnel only.

Access to the head of the buttons can be made from the external side of the cartridge. That is, the authorized personnel can access the buttons without prior opening of the cassette. Thus, the cartridge does not need to be open to change or adjust the layout of the buttons. For example, to rearrange the buttons on the cassette, fully loaded banknotes, no need to delete banknotes.

The button can be quickly put into engagement with the cassette in order to stay in it. The end of the button opposite the head of the button can be fixed to the cassette with the possibility of its removal. For example, the end may have a fastening device, for example, a pin or lug, or tab, to prevent the check out button when you move out. Thus, the button may be of a fixed or predefined limit the degree of movement outside. Similarly, the button can also be about the found moving towards the inside. The button can be attached to the cassette, with the possibility of retrieval when the lid of the cassette is open. That is, the means of attaching the button to the cassette may be so designed that the button cannot be extracted from the cassette or withdrawn from engagement with her without prior opening of the cassette.

The housing 210 of the cassette may have a symbol 216 (or logo or mark or marks)representing or indicating the open and closed positions of the buttons. As shown in the drawing, symbol 216 contains an image of the head button. The symbol indicates by the arrow in which direction to turn or rotate the button to move it between the closed position and the open position. The symbol also shows that the arrow on the head button, located in the vertical direction or pointing up indicates a positive (+) or outer position of the button. Similarly, the symbol shows that the arrow on the head button, located in the horizontal direction or directed sideways, indicates negative (-) or internal position of the button. Thus, the button is moved so that its arrow is in the upright position, is enabled and can be detected or read by the ATM. Similarly, the button changes the military so her hand is in a horizontal position is "off" and cannot be detected by the ATM.

In Fig. 18 shows the eight holes for the buttons and seven buttons. Seven of the holes for the buttons marked with signs 1-7. Two buttons (holes 1 and 4) are in "on" (acting) position, and five buttons (holes 2-3 and 5-7) are in the "off" (flush) position. Can be used more or fewer buttons and holes for the buttons. The empty hole for the button can be used for other purposes, for example, to indicate the condition of shortage of means of payment.

In Fig. 19 and Fig. 20 shows the case of the cassette according to Fig. 18, respectively, on the front view angle and a rear angle. In Fig. 19 also shows the handle 218 of the cartridge and the arm 220 of the cartridge. In Fig. 20 also shows the cover 222 of the cartridge and the base 224. Staff can transfer the cartridge by the handle. The lever can be used when opening the cassette.

In Fig. 21 and Fig. 22 shows an alternative cartridge 226, respectively, on the front view and back view. In Fig. 21 also shows the housing 228 of the cartridge, the handle 230 and the lever 232. In Fig. 22 shows the case 228 cassette having a configuration with eighteen holes 234 for buttons. The holes for the buttons can be located close to them signs, hereafter who make use of them. For example, the hole 236 for buttons used indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment, may be marked as "NA" ("ML"), which may indicate "insufficient number of means of payment". Can be used and other configurations and labels. For example, the cartridge for the payment of funds may have twenty-eight holes for the buttons, which can be equivalent to 28 bits. In the cassette can also be used buttons which are used for ATM as indicators of the presence of a cassette, the cassette is locked and/or condition of shortage of means of payment (e.g. cash).

As described in U.S. patent No. 4871085, for indication of the status of the shortage of banknotes in the cassette or the notification can be made using the contact button indicator. However, sometimes when the indication of the condition of lack of money, often in the cassette remains too much excess banknotes. In some cases, more effective solution is to provide the possibility of issuing more money out of the cartridge before you need to call service personnel. Thus, it would be advisable to have the ability to adjust that creates a state of shortage of means of payment in the cassette. This way assests the ment of the invention allows such adjustment, precise adjustment or fine tuning the design of the indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment.

In Fig. 23 shows the construction 238 indicator of insufficient means of payment for the cartridge. The pin 240, a floating body 242 of the plate pusher (e.g., located on or attached to it), uncouples the lever 244, initiating a state of shortage of means of payment. The body of the pusher plate may be shifted (e.g., spring biased), pushing a means of payment (or applying force to them) to that portion of a tape, from which the output means of payment. Release the pin actuates a device indicator (for example, the button indicator or button mechanism indicator) condition of payment instruments (for example, insufficient means of payment) in response to the fact that means of payment has reached a preset condition means of payment in the cassette. Release the pin may have a head 246, which may rest against the cylinder 248 useplease arm or engage with it, moving the release lever, in the main, parallel to the movement of the plate pusher (for example, in the horizontal direction). The head can represent the Cams set at an angle. Release lever can be moved in such a way that results in DWI is giving the actuator 250 (or drive bracket) indicator of insufficient means of payment. Can be used a spring-loaded drive bracket.

Drive indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment may include contact button indicator, but can also be used with other devices, specifies the ATM on the condition of shortage of means of payment. For example, the lever (or drive bracket) can be performed in such a way that its movement can be directly registered or detected component of the ATM to indicate the condition of shortage of means of payment, without using the button indicator (or in addition to its use). However, for display can be used in other relations and devices.

Section 252 of the wall of the cassette can contain many slots 254 (or holes). Release lever 244 may be operatively attached to the bracket 250 drive through connector 256 (e.g., pin or screw, or bolt, passing through the slot 254. That is, release the lever and the bracket of the actuator can be connected with the wall located between them or occupying an intermediate position between them (for example, release lever is located on one side of the wall, and the drive bracket is located on the opposite side of the wall). The connector 256 slides along the groove 254.

Release lever 244 (or latch or crons is Ein) can move in both directions: in the direction of rotation (for example, rotation) and in the horizontal direction (i.e. in a direction generally parallel to the movement of the plate pusher). Release lever is rotated around the axis of the connector. Release lever may include a limiter 258 (or lug or flanged edge). The limiter 258 is engaged with a step (or ledge) 260 wall 252 of the cartridge. The engagement prevents rotation of the release lever down outside stairs. Release lever can also be weighted in his plot 262, located in front of the direction in the longitudinal direction.

As the limited supply of means of payment, the pusher plate moves the release pin. In the end, the cylinder release pin may come into contact with the cylinder release lever. Upon further movement of the pusher plate release pin pushes the release lever in the horizontal direction. That is, the force due to the presence of the weighted section of the lever may prevent the rotation of the lever, the lever can slide in the groove. The pressure on the release lever on the side can occur up until the connector reaches the end of a groove located in front of the direction (for example, the end of the groove, closest to the hole of the indicator). When the connector is located so that abuts against an end of the groove, to which onstein actuator is shifted in its position, indicates insufficient quantity of means of payment (for example, in a position that may cause the raise button indicator of the hole for the button).

When the connector is located so that abuts against an end of the groove, further movement of the pusher plate can cause the release lever overcomes the force arising due to the presence of heavy plot, and begins to turn. Release lever can be rotated at such a distance, with the result that the cylinder release pin can slip past the head release lever. Without power release pin acting on the release lever, weighted area may cause rotation of the release lever in the opposite direction up until the limiter again engages with a step.

Release the pin 240 (e.g., device-emphasis or release device may be an adjustable release pin. The pin can be moved to the pusher plate, or may be modified his position on it. In the embodiment of Fig. 23 provided by the presence of three different positions of installation of the release pin to release the device. Other design options may have more or fewer installation positions. Adjust the rd pin can be configured to adjust the exact condition of shortage of means of payment, with an adjustment range of levels in millimeters. For example, the release pin may be adjustable in increments of 2 mm (millimeters). In the scope of the invention includes the steps larger or smaller in length.

Release pin (or element) can be attached to the plate (or mechanism) of the pusher with the possibility of its removal in different places located at a distance from each other in the longitudinal direction along the plate (or mechanism) of the pusher, usually in a direction parallel to the direction of movement of means of payment in the cassette. Release the pin 240 can be attached to the plate 242 of the plunger with the possibility of its removal. For example, the connection may include a connection type tightly inserted button-latch or join other first processing of iron. That is, the release pin can have multiple tabs, which are made in such a way that firmly fixed in the recesses of the plot plate pusher or are associated with them. In Fig. 23 shows the recess 264. Design connection can contain multiple spatially separated or offset of the connecting pads. For example, the connection may include a pair of connectors. The connection can be similar to the connection blocks type designer "LEGO" LEGO®). Can also be used in ofany other means of attachment, connections, or bonds.

Alternatively, the release pin can be fastened with the body plate of the pusher with the possibility of sliding on it. The body of the pusher plate may be provided with one or more grooves. The slots in the pusher plate can be elongated in the (longitudinal) direction of the movement of means of payment (and the pusher plate). Release the pin slides along the grooves. Release pin may be (lower) rim at one end to hold it in sealed condition with the body plate of the pusher. Release the pin may be locked or fixed in a particular position along the grooves. To secure release pin in a specific position may be used to lock (or locking) device. Consequently, the release pin can be attached to the body plate of the pusher (or element having operative connection with him) in the first position in the groove, and then subsequently fixed in a different position in the second position in the groove. Release pin located in the first position (or in the first installation site), results in an action (for example, unhooks the device-the light before it makes the release pin located in the second position (or in the second place of installation). That is, release pin, set the built in one position, can cause (or trigger) the activation (or triggering or actuation) available in tape indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment in the first predetermined state (or position), characterizing the level of the volume of banknotes, while the release pin mounted in a different position, can cause the actuation of the indicator tape when another predetermined condition, characterizing the level of the volume of banknotes. Thus, actuation of the indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment in the corresponding predetermined condition of shortage of means of payment can be done by setting the release pin in such a position that it rescales indicator at the time when the amount of the payment means reaches a preset condition of shortage of means of payment. Actuation of the indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment can directly depend on the place of installation of the release pin.

Alternatively, the release pin can be attached to the body plate of the pusher with the possibility of rotation. For example, the release pin can be rotated as the dial of a phone or pen. For example, the release pin can be rotated in odnos four different installation positions. Release the pin may have heads of different sizes. In order to reflect the different levels of an insufficient quantity of means of payment, each head can be rotated into the engaged position with the release lever. Each corresponding cylinder could be used for attachment of the indicator to the insufficient amount of money in the various moments of time. In some embodiments of the invention, the cylinder release pin may be capable of rotation when the cartridge is in ATM. Therefore, ATM / cash machine can automatically change the position of installation of the release device to change the installation positions release device specific cassette. For example, the cartridge may serve to transport the means of payment are two different types, while for some, the means of payment used first cylinder release pin, and for other means of payment use the second cylinder release pin. In addition, one cylinder release pin itself may be rotatable. The head can have many located at the points of engagement with the lever having different size. For example, the head may have four points of the mesh, placed at 90 degrees. Thus, the head rescales the on pin can be rotated to set a specific installation position, indicates that the number of payment instruments is insufficient.

In an alternative embodiment, the pusher plate may be provided with a variety of release pins fixedly attached to or integrated with it (for example, forming with it a whole). That is, the pins can remain together with the pusher plate (that is, instead of removing them from her). In one of the embodiments of the invention, the pins may be recessed or hidden in the plate pusher or under it, and then raised, extended or withdrawn at the time of its use. For example, the pin may be biased by a spring in operating position in which he is acting. When moving a recessed pin in an outward direction perpendicular to the direction of movement of the pusher plate, he may break up (for example, to be shifted upward in the direction of rotation) in the working position. After use, the pin can be omitted (for example, displaced against the spring force to a position which is parallel to the surface plate of the pusher, and then pushed back into the pusher plate.

In addition, the release pins may have different dimensions or sizes. For example, the release pin may have a head included in engagement with the lever, of different lengths. Thus, the first release pin with th is ovcu first length, can be attached to the pusher plate (or any other part that is movable with decreasing the length of the stack of papers). The first release pin can be attached to the pusher plate using the first device configuration in the form of grooves (or slots). The first release pin may be replaced by a second release pin having a longer head. The second release pin can be attached to the pusher plate using the same device configuration as the grooves (connections), which was used for the first release pin. Thus, when using the second release pin indication of the condition of shortage of means of payment (or the length of a pack of banknotes) occurs earlier than when using the first release of the pin. That is, more long section of the head of the second release pin provides a faster mechanism release lever, shorter than the plot of the first release pin.

It should be understood that can be used in combination (a) to adjust the point of attachment release pin to the plate pusher and (b) adjust the size of the head release pin. Such combinations can provide even more precise adjustment of the conditions of lack of dps the payment of money (or the lack of means of payment).

Adjustable release pin can be installed in a specific position of disengagement thickness on the basis of specific bills intended for loading into a cassette. For example, so that the cartridge was the same number of notes, as in a smaller more subtle (e.g., new) notes, it may take a long tutu thicker (e.g., worn or old) banknotes. The thickness of the banknotes may also be different in different countries. Therefore, the pin can be located in such a way as to make a disconnection before for thicker banknotes and later for a more subtle notes.

In addition, it may be advantageous to carry out the refill cartridge (or cartridges) ATM before you lost the ability to issue banknotes of a specific denomination (or the ability to issue any banknotes). Adjustable release pin can be installed in a specific position of disengagement, on the basis of ability to provide fast service cartridge. For example, the first ATM located in the Bank building (which houses the employees of the Bank), can be serviced faster than the second ATM / cash machine located at a remote location, located at a great distance from the staff. That is, an employee of a Bank who work in the building of the Bank (who was notified about the status of the shortage of banknotes), you may be able to quickly refill the cartridge for banknotes in the first ATM, without leaving the Bank, whereas for the second replenishment of the ATM organization may require more time. For maintenance of the second ATM may have a great time in order to reach it. Of course, there may be other scenarios in relation to the response time for maintenance, for example, the placement of the ATM near the center of maintenance and/or operation of ATMs.

Thus, in those cases that require a relatively large response time, adjustable release pin may be positioned so that it rescales lever indication of the lack of funds relatively early (for example, so that when the coupler is in the cassette remained relatively large part of a pack of banknotes). Otherwise, when you need a relatively shorter response time, adjustable pin may be positioned so that it rescales lever indication of the lack of funds relatively late (e.g., so that when the coupler is in the cassette remained a relatively small part of a pack of banknotes).

In other cases, service personnel need only to know whether emptied the contents of the cassette. Nab is emer, the cartridge may be pre-loaded such means of payment, such as coupons. The person promoting the coupons may be a limit on the number of issued coupons. Therefore, after the devastation of the cartridge it should no longer re-download the coupons. Thus, the adjustable release pin can be installed in such a way as to provide an indication of the status of the empty cartridge.

In alternative embodiments the invention, the release lever can be adjustable. That is, the release lever can be lifted and rotated in the other groove wall of the cassette. Can also be used levers of different size and length. The combination of adjustable and interchangeable release pins and release levers can provide a more accurate adjustment of the conditions of shortage of means of payment (or Decimator means of payment). For example, release the pin and release the lever can be positioned in such a way as to provide an accurate indication of the state in which the cartridge is completely empty.

In addition, there may be used the sequence unlinked indicators using one or more release levers. Thus, ATM and/or serving persons who l can receive numerous notifications specified by indicator number of means of payment, remaining in the particular cassette. Each subsequent notification may reflect information about fewer payment of funds remaining in the cassette. For example, the release pin can rotate the first release lever to indicate the first state, shortage of means of payment (which may correspond to the number of banknotes or the value of banknotes remaining in the cartridge). May be provided to enable rotation of the first release lever that allows the release pin to slip under it to the next (second) release lever in the sequence. Then release the pin can be carried forward to the second lever, causing disengagement (i.e., the second interruption in the sequence). In addition, the interval between the slots in the wall of the cassette can be made with different lengths. That is, the distance between two adjacent grooves may be larger than the distance between other two neighboring grooves. In other embodiments, the design can be used grooves of different lengths for use with release levers of different sizes. That is, the groove may have a greater length than the adjacent groove.

Careless handling or transportation of the cassette may fall or take the vibration generated by the vehicle. Therefore, in some of the s cases it can cause premature tripping mechanism indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment, supplied with the cartridge. Due to the premature release a fully loaded cassette may be an indication that it needs replenishment. In the above embodiment, prevents premature tripping mechanism indicator of insufficient means of payment. For example, in refilled cartridges for payment of its drive system status indicator of shortage of means of payment may be blocked by a locking device during transport to prevent false positives or raceplane. The locking device can be used to reduce the number of calls to operating personnel due to false positives mechanisms indication of insufficient quantity of means of payment or to prevent them.

Indication of the condition of shortage of means of payment can be made by moving the spring bracket drive. For example, the above-described release lever can be used for tripping, tripping or release of the drive bracket. The drive bracket can be used to move the button indicator through the hole for the button in the protruding position. The drive bracket may be shifted from its position display.

In Fig. 24 shows the plot 266 cash is s, in which the locking mechanism indicator of insufficient payment means is in the unlocked (or open) position. Cover 268 cassettes are also shown in the open position. In Fig. 25 shows a section 266 of the cassette, in which the locking mechanism indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment is in the locked (or closed) position. In Fig. 26 shows a cassette with the lid closed 268. In Fig. 24 also shows a portion of a tape having a spring-loaded bracket 250 drive indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment, the locking lever 270 indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment and the door 272 (e.g., roll-up door). The locking lever 270 may be spring loaded by a spring 274. The locking lever may move the spring in the position for unlocking, which is shown in Fig. 24. In Fig. 24 spring is shown in its normal state bias (or at rest). One end of the spring may be attached to the locking lever and its other end - portion of a tape.

The locking lever can be rotated (or can rotate around the shaft 276 (or pin). The shaft can be made with flanged edge 278 at the end of it helps to keep the locking lever. The opposite end of shaft 280 may be inserted in the groove 282 shaft (or pass the through it in section 252 of the wall of the cassette, as shown in Fig. 23. The opposite end can also be made with raised edge to hold the shaft 276 in the groove for the shaft (or about him). The shaft is movable in the groove for the shaft. The shaft may be movable in a direction, generally parallel to the direction of the arrow A. As described below, movement of the shaft may be made of land cover 268 cassettes, and land cover rests on the shaft, causing it to move.

Bracket 250 of the actuator can be displaced by the spring 284 in the direction of the arrow A. that is, in the normal state drive bracket can be moved to the right, as shown in Fig. 24. For the indication of the condition of shortage of means of payment drive bracket can be moved to the left as shown in Fig. 24. According Fig. 23, the bracket 250 of the actuator can move the length of the horizontal groove 254 in section 252 of the wall of the cassette.

The locking lever has a plot 286 gearing (hanging or foot or toe), which has the possibility of engagement with the corresponding section 288 gearing (ledge or foot or finger) bracket, actuator for the clutch in the lock. That is, when the finger lever 286 is located in the upper blocking position, he can enter into engagement with the finger 288 actuator, preventing movement of the drive bracket to the left, as shown in Fig. 25. As the finger p is chaga and the finger actuator may have an inclined curved rear surface. If the lever is in the blocking position, in which the finger lever is located behind the thumb drive, the inclined surface may facilitate the passage of the finger drive past the finger lever. That is, even if the locking lever is located at the top of the blocking position behind the thumb drive, the drive bracket can slip past him, for example, to the right, as shown in Fig. 24.

Louvered door 272 can be opened by embedding or moves inside. For example, the door can be opened by moving in the direction of arrow A, shown in Fig. 24. The door may provide an opportunity for proper placement mechanism gripping device for gripping the payment of funds from the cassette. The door may open automatically when you insert a cassette in the machine. Door operation cassettes is known and its description is not required here.

The locking lever 270 holds the bracket 250 of the actuator in the locked position during manipulation of the cassette and its transportation. For example, the drive bracket can be locked in for a period of time after refilling the cartridge and to install the refilled cartridge in the machine. The drive bracket can also be locked in during the s period of time between removing the cassette from the ATM and point of opening the lid of the cassette.

When the cassette is inserted into the channel of the gripping device of the feeding device of the ATM, the locking lever is automatically moved from its retaining (or blocking) position. When moving the locking lever siteplease finger 286 of the locking lever disengages from SitePlayer finger 288 of the drive bracket. Then, when achieved the status of shortage of means of payment, the drive bracket can be freely moved against a bias force of its spring to indicate the condition of shortage of means of payment.

Control locking and unlocking of a spring-loaded bracket actuator may be implemented as the louvered door and lid of the cassette. The locking lever can be moved (or removed from the mesh) in the unlocked position the louvered door. Fully loaded cassette, the drive bracket which is locked, can be inserted into the ATM. When you insert a cassette in the machine door can be opened. As you open the door it engages with the rim 290 (or bracket or area or protrusion) of the locking lever 270 and moves it. For example, the edge 290 of the locking lever can be moved by engagement with the latch 292 (or lock) on the louvered door 272 or by interaction with her. As you move two of the hospitals in the direction of opening the latch is engaged with the rim 290 of the lever grip and moves it. In an alternative embodiment, the end of the louvered door engages and moves the rim of the locking lever. Moving the rim 290 of the locking lever in the direction of arrow A) causes rotation of the locking lever 270 around the shaft 276. Turning action causes the output of the drive bracket from its locked state (or to the separation, or to unlock). That is, siteplease finger 286 of the locking lever disengages from SitePlayer finger 288 of the drive bracket. Open the louvered door 272 holds (or saves) the locking lever 270 in its unlocked position.

Removing a cartridge from the ATM may be required for several reasons, including to recharge. The cartridge may be ejected from the ATM, when the drive bracket is in position indication. It is also possible that there has already been a status indication of the lack of means of payment, but before performing maintenance on its refilling, the cartridge was emptied from the means of payment. Alternatively, the ATM may be programmed to empty the cartridge before refilling.

It is possible that before removing the empty cartridge has been moving the release pin plate of the pusher means of payment so that he passed the last release lever. After vetelino, return of the drive bracket cartridge under the action of its return spring in position to the lack of display. After removing the cassette louvered door is moved towards the closed position. When moving the door toward closed position, the locking lever is no longer held by the latch of the door in the unlocked position. Therefore, the locking lever under the action of its spring turns back into a blocking position and captures (or blocks) the drive bracket in position to the lack of display. That is, the finger of the locking lever is moved, again entering into locking engagement with the finger drive bracket. Therefore, during transportation (or transportation) of the cassette from the ATM in the workstation for its replenishment drive bracket can again be held in the locked (or locked) state.

In another scenario, the cartridge may be ejected from the ATM, when the drive bracket is in position indication (for example, when the drive bracket caused the raise button display through the hole for the button). For example, the cartridge may be ejected after he was an indication of an insufficient quantity of means of payment, but before the release pin passed by the release lever. The cartridge may still contain square the payment means (i.e., the cartridge is not empty). During the extraction of a partially filled cartridge louvered door releases the locking lever, which returns to its blocking position. The finger lever is engaged with the rear side (right side in Fig. 24) thumb drive. Sloping curved surface of the finger lever and a thumb drive can be linked together by a locking connection. Engagement can prevent the slippage of the drive bracket by the locking lever. For example, even when the lead plate of the pusher back the power of gearing may be greater than the force of the return spring bracket drive. Thus, the lever locks the drive bracket in its position indication (in its extreme left position in the groove according to Fig. 24).

Drive bracket (blocked in any of the following positions: position indication or in the absence of indication) may be automatically released from its locked position after opening the lid of the cassette. When the cover tape, a supporting member 294 of the cover allows the shaft 276 to move in the direction of arrow B, as shown in Fig. 26. Movement of the shaft causes rotation of the locking lever 270 and tripping bracket 250 of the actuator. That is, the opening of the cartridge (for example, tape closed the louvered door and the cassette removed from b is Nkomati) unlocks the drive bracket. Conversely, closing the lid of the cassette moves the shaft in the opposite direction, blocking the drive bracket.

In Fig. 24 shows the position of the shaft when the cover is open. In Fig. 25 shows the position of the shaft when the cover is closed. Fig. 26 illustrates the effect on the shaft to move from a position with the lid closed position when the cover is open.

It may be appropriate that during maintenance the drive bracket was unlocked or in a free state. For example, the fact that the drive bracket is free during opening of the cover, can ensure the unification of the initial States of the lock, checking the movement of the drive bracket and the spring force of the drive bracket, to facilitate the operations of the reset means of payment, access and replacement of the cartridge.

The cartridge can be refilled or reloaded (loaded or empty)when the cover is in the open state. For example, the cartridge may be loaded manually or automated bootable machine. After closing the lid locking lever is moved in such a way that blocks the drive bracket in its position of no display. Refilled cartridge can be delivered in cash by transporting.

The locking lever may be automatically the Eski moved thereby, so he blocked the arm of the actuator, in response to closing the lid on the workstation or on closing the louvered doors in the ATM. That is, the locking device automatically locks the drive bracket throughout transportation. Thus, the mechanism of the indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment can be properly secured during transport.

As described in U.S. patent No. 4871085, information about the cassette for the means of payment may be specified or communicated to the ATM using one or more buttons of the indicator. The layout of the buttons can characterize the cartridge and its contents, for example, the owner of the tape, the sequence number of the cassette and denomination banknotes. Information about the specific typical characteristic of the cassette can be transferred to the ATM through physical contact between one or more buttons and a component of the ATM. For example, the indication of the condition of shortage of means of payment can be made by establishing contact between the button and the component of the ATM by moving the contact button. Other buttons cassettes can come in contact with any component of the ATM when you insert a cassette in the machine.

In the above embodiment, in the cassette for the means of payment can be used by the other devices or ways to display information about the contents of the cartridge to provide the ATM. Unlike connection with the use of mechanical buttons for physical contact, the other option provides the ability to implement communication without physical contact. For example, to communicate with the ATM in the cassette can be used flat element, for example, a contactless defendant. One option for the transmission of information by way of the contactless communication may be a radio (e.g., radio waves). Can also be used with other types of remote connection.

The cartridge may have one or more tags (or device or indicator elements) radio frequency identification (RFID), which contain data indicating or reflecting information about the contents of the cartridge. RFID tags can operate on the basis of the backscattered signal. May result in the transfer of data between the RFID tags and ATM. Data transfer may also occur between the RFID tags and a computer workstation in the service center.

RFID tags can be used in a box or cassette instead of the contact buttons indicator information, or in addition to them. The cartridge can be attached or attached to one or more tags (e.g., on it or inside it) with the possibility of their removal. Alternatively, the label may be permanently attached to the cassette,for example, built-in (plastic) part of the cassette.

RFID tags store information characterizing the box and its contents, for example, the owner of the tape, the sequence number of the cassette and denomination banknotes. Tags can contain a much larger amount of data associated with the cassette than the volume that can be displayed by the layout of the buttons-indicators. For example, tags may contain information reflecting the registration data (for example, date, meter reading means of payment, the name or ID of the person making the boot) and a description of the means of payment (for example, the type, height, length, thickness). The tag may be a carrier of a unique identifier cassette length of 32 bits or more. Tags can also store more information in less space compared to a device with mechanical buttons-indicators.

Unlike buttons, RFID tags do not require contact (for example, mechanical or electrical contact) with the node feeder means of payment. Therefore, contactless can prevent damage (wear) themselves and/or feeder and, in addition, can prevent possible clogging inherent mechanical buttons.

RFID tags can contain permanent or rewritable memory device is isto to store information about the cartridge. RFID tags can contain memory that can be replaced or modified by the operating personnel. The memory tag may be programmable. For example, a workstation for maintenance may include a device that communicates with the RFID tag to change and/or reading the data therein. Can also be used a portable communication device with RFID tags.

In an alternative embodiment, the tag may contain immutable data. In such alternative embodiments for the full display of the information content of a particular cartridge, you may need to have been granted or to be attached to a set of tags designed only for reading. The cassette may also contain a set of programmable tags and tags that are designed only for reading.

Each cassette for payment of funds available in the cash machine may be equipped with a RFID tag. The reader provides a remote reading of data from the tag. The reader may be associated with a feed channel of the feeding device. The reader reads data from the tag when this tag is physically contactless communication with an ATM. Therefore, the reader tags can be situated is about the distance from the tag. The exchange of information between the tag with information about the cartridge and the ATM can occur without physical contact using the above buttons.

When the cassette is equipped with a RFID tag that is inserted into the loading channel of the feeding device of the ATM card reader associated with a feed channel of the feeding device, queries the tag for information about a particular cassette. The reader may contain a node of circuit boards. The tag may be a tag of this type, which do not need a power source (e.g. battery), but it works due to the energy of radio frequency radiation generated by the reader. The information exchanged between the RFID tag and the reading device can be encrypted for additional security. Thus, the reading device may include a decoder in the decoding scheme.

In Fig. 27 shows a portion of a tape 296 with tag 298 RFID. In Fig. 28 shows a section of an alternative cassette 300, equipped with a tag 302 RFID, located in the place usually reserved for the contact buttons of indicator information. Alternatively, in a modified form of the cartridge, the tag can replace some buttons. The drawing also shows the buttons 304. Also coated the cut hole 306 for the button, which may be useful for indicating the condition of shortage of means of payment. One or more buttons 304 may be used to specify the ATM that the cartridge is equipped with a RFID tag. ATMs can read buttons and RFID tags.

To specify the ATM that the cartridge is properly located in the channel of the feeding device and/or condition of shortage of means of payment (e.g. cash), can also be used contactless (wireless) technology. Can also be specified condition "cartridge locked". That is, when using contactless cassettes can also be replaced by a button indicating that the cartridge is in the locked position.

The recognition provisions of the cassette may be implemented using one or more sensors. Can be used cheap distance sensors on the effect of the eddy current with high accuracy, although the possible types of sensors is not limited to sensors of this type. The sensor may be part of the schema of sensors associated with a feed channel of the feeding device. To the cassette (which may contain plastic) can be attached or it can be integrated with the object of measurement (for example, a metal object of measurement, for example, ferrite) or the indicator element. The sensor accurately measures the distance between indicators the m element (for example, the measured object and the sensor (or other object). Determining that the cartridge is properly located in the ATM (or workstation)can be carried out if it is discovered that the object of measurement is within a predetermined or acceptable distance from the sensor. That is, the cassette can be considered to be located properly in the case, if it is determined that it is close enough to the sensor. According to the data from the sensor processor of the ATM may determine whether the cassette is properly. Can be used one or more dimension objects and/or sensors. Similarly, to determine whether the cassette is properly in the workstation, can be used to design object measurement/proximity sensor. In Fig. 28 shows another variant of the plot 300 cassettes with object 308 measurement. It is clear that the cassette can have many places in which you might be is a dimension object.

Design with proximity sensor can also be used to determine the condition of shortage of means of payment in the cassette. This construction may be similar in design to determine the position of the cassette. Moving the measurement object (for example, f is Rita) can be associated with the cassette, and not with a button. The sensor insufficient means of payment can be used for the respective measuring the distance between the measured object and the sensor. Can be used one or more dimension objects and/or sensors. The object of the measurement, under specific provisions may be an indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment (e.g. cash), remaining in the cassette. Accuracy requirements for sensor insufficient means of payment may be less stringent than for position sensor cassette. For example, when measuring an object of measurement, which is an indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment, may be located closer (for example, it could be moved closer before measuring). Therefore, in the design of the sensor insufficient means of payment can be used movable object dimension smaller. Alternatively can be used in the design of the sensor/object measurement with very high accuracy, for example, in order to try to determine the exact number of banknotes or banknotes remaining in the cassette.

Can be made progressive mechanical movement of the measurement object, which is an indicator of the insufficient number of Board the funds, in response to spring pressure or the action of other mechanisms. For example, the measurement object can be attached to the pusher plate (for example, to the plate of the pusher banknotes) cassette or built into it. In Fig. 29 shows the plate 310 of the pusher and a pack 312 means of payment. The pusher plate contains the object 314 measurement. In an alternative embodiment, the measuring object can be moved together with the cassette, reaching the status of shortage of means of payment. The sensor detects the movement of the measurement object. In addition, the measurement object can be detected only after the cassette achieved the status of shortage of means of payment. For example, the measurement object may be shielded from discovery in that condition, when the number of means of payment is acceptable. Then, in the condition of shortage of means of payment the object of measurement may be unshielded. Of course, as the sensor/measurement object can be used by other devices and/or device, such as a rangefinder (for example, a laser rangefinder). Can also be used global positioning (GPS) or its component.

As described above, the RFID tag may contain data describing the cassette and its contents. For example, the RFID tag may include data reflecting to the d banknotes, the nominal value of banknotes and the unique serial number of the cartridge.

In the embodiment of the invention, the ATM reads the RFID tag to obtain information about the source or on the current number of banknotes in the cassette. ATM conducts counting banknotes in the cassette in the current time. This can be achieved by keeping the number of banknotes, originally located in the cassette, minus the number of banknotes extracted from the cassette.

ATM can support operational communication with other ATMs in the network (for example, in the banking ATM network, which may include the Internet). In the embodiment of the invention the network may track information (e.g. banknotes)associated with a particular cartridge, by recognizing its unique serial number. This implies that the network can learn the information (e.g. banknotes)related to a particular ATM. In addition, this implies that the network can learn the information (e.g. banknotes)with respect to each ATM in the network. Can be performed periodically or continuously update the network information (e.g., data on banknotes). For example, the network information may be received in real mA is the headquarters of the time.

The network may include one or more computers. The ATM may include at least one computer. The network may contain the master node, which can communicate with each ATM. The connection may be maintained via the Internet and/or private network.

Ability tracking provides the client (for example, the Bank is the owner of the master node) the ability to have information on the exact amount of bills (for example, on the number, value in monetary terms, types, etc.)in circulation in their banking system or network of ATMs. This structure allows the network operator to ensure better management of cash. Respectively, can be adjusted by the amount of money in the ATMs, for example, banknotes can be added or removed from it. May be issued an order for banknotes of a specific denomination. Thus, it can be improved management of cash, management of cash replenishment and improved the efficiency of the banking network.

The ability to track individual cassettes by their number can be used to improve network efficiency. For example, can be identified problematic tapes. A particular cartridge may be connected or FOSS is systematic with a certain number of failures. These failures can be linked to different ATMs. That is, one and the same cassette can be associated with failures in various ATMs. Tracking specific cassette allows its recognition for maintenance, repair or replacement.

The RFID tag may also contain tracking data. For example, some data may reflect information about the organization (person or people)responsible for the maintenance cartridge, including about the organization, which made loading the tape. So, the specific cartridges can be associated with specific organizations. Therefore, the ability to track individual cassettes in the banking network can provide an opportunity to improve security.

RFID tags provide the reading and registration (storage) and provide the data on the tape. In the RFID tag can be recorded all actions associated with the cassette. For example, RFID tags can be used to provide the tracked information associated with a serial number of the cassette, with the owner of the tape, with accessory banknotes any state, denominated banknotes, with a length of banknotes, with a height of banknotes, with a thickness of banknotes, with the number of downloaded banknotes, with time, date, identifier the torus handler, with the serial number of the ATM, with the service life of the cartridge, repair reports, etc.

The use of HF can eliminate the need for mechanical contact between the cassette and loading the channels of the feeding devices. One example of a contactless communication is the use of radio communications. Instead of radio communication using radio frequencies or radio waves (or in addition) can be used other types of contactless communication for transmission of information.

The cartridge may also have an electronic lock. For example, the cartridge may have an electronic lock in the form of a keypad. Electronic lock in the form of a keypad may be used instead of the lock with keys (or in addition to it). Each unique cartridge may have a different access code or combination. Code for the electronic lock of the cassette can be changed.

Cassette with electronic lock can be equipped with a rechargeable battery. Charging the battery can be carried out in a contactless manner. For example, the cartridge may contain the output for the inductive charge associated with the battery. The battery can be recharged through the outlet for inductive charging.

The locking device may include a latch of the lock, for example, a latch or lever. The tongue of the latch can be moved between a locked floor is available and unlocked position. The tongue of the latch, when in the locked position, can prevent the opening of the cartridge. In the cassette with electronic lock can be used the drive to bring the tongue latch in motion. For example, to bring the tongue latch in motion can be used solenoid or motor. The drive can operate without battery.

In the cassette with electronic lock can be used, programmable electronic keypad. The keypad can be programmed to perceive many access codes to the cassette. That is, the unlocking of the cassette can be carried out through more than one access code or combination. In addition, a possible variant in which to unlock the cassette, you must enter multiple access codes. For example, in order to qualify for the penetration into the inner part of the cartridge, you may need to enter the password after entering the user ID. In addition, codes or identifiers entered via a keypad, can be written (e.g., stored in storage device) electronic lock. May also be recorded the date and time of access (or attempted access). Therefore, it may be recorded in an audit log of access to the cassette.

Then, after wagaluxapohao code (or sequence of codes) can be produced by the firing of the cartridge. The battery may result in action or movement of the solenoid or motor. The solenoid moves the tongue of the latch from the locked position to the unlocked position. Then the cassette can be opened, for example, by opening the cover or casing of the cassette. Opening, loading and closing the cassette can be performed manually. In alternative embodiments of the pointing device functions to open, load and close the cassette can be performed by the machine for loading and unloading cassettes.

Electronic locking device can increase security compared with mechanical locks with a key. Can be excluded using keys, which are the material objects. Each cassette can have a different access code. Therefore, the loss of one code does not endanger other tapes. In addition, the access code to the cassette can be changed. For example, the access code to the cassette can be changed after each entry. Electronic lock can also be designed in such a way that prevents the closing of the cassette until then, until you change its access code.

After closing the cover or lid of the cassette casing can be automatically locked. For automatic closing latch latch can be used in mechanical devices. For example, the tongue latch can the t to be powered by a spring so so when closing the cover was the return of the tongue latch in the locked position. In an alternative embodiment, the tongue latch can be moved to the locked position by the drive device. The cartridge may also have a visual indicator (e.g., led)indicating the locked and unlocked state. Alternatively, to recognize whether or not the tongue latch the cassette is in a locked position or has been moved to that position), may be used a device with a proximity sensor (described above).

In Fig. 30 shows the rear of the cartridge 316. The cartridge has a pad 318 to RFID tags, pad 320 for contact buttons, indicators and output 322 for inductive charging. Also shown region 324 for a gripping device/gear banknotes. Of course, can be used and other options. For example, the port may be located at the location of the RFID tags and Vice versa.

In Fig. 31 shows a closed cassette 326 area 328 for programmable button panel located in its upper part. Playground for keypad has buttons 330 and the LEDs 332. The LEDs tell what button or what buttons were pressed or activated. Can be used in other devices the input data, than push buttons. For example, the input device may be sensitive to touch (touch). Keypad perceives the access code to open the cassette.

In Fig. 32 shows the plot 334 cassette containing the battery 336, the solenoid 338 and the tongue 340 latches which are operatively connected to each other. Playground for keypad may be located outside the solenoid and/or a rechargeable battery (e.g., above or to the side of them). The solenoid can be powered keypad, setting in motion the tongue latch. The keypad and the battery can also be operatively connected to the processor. The tongue latch may have a conventional configuration.

In Fig. 33 shows the cassette 342 with buttons 344 programmable lock and placed near them LEDs 346. Buttons are shown spaced from each other or separately, protruding in the axial direction and having the same cylindrical shape. Each button has a corresponding led that is located beneath it. The LEDs are shown spaced from each other and have the same round shape. Each of the buttons can be identical to other buttons. Similarly, each of the LEDs may be identical to other LEDs. Button and light the iodines protrude from the surface. Although the drawing shows four buttons and four LEDs, it should be understood that the cartridge may contain a greater or less number.

In Fig. 34 also shows the cartridge 348 with buttons 350 programmable lock and placed near them LEDs 352. Shows the buttons are different and are located in close proximity to the adjacent buttons. Each button forms part of the oval is divided into segments. The LEDs are shown spaced from each other and have the same elongated shape. Buttons and LEDs can protrude from the surface of the tape to be on the same level with her or to be buried inside her. Each of the LEDs may also be located adjacent surfaces of the cassette. For example, the first portion of the elongated led can act in the axial direction, perpendicular to the second of his plot. Therefore, the led can be seen from two different directions, for example, top and side.

In Fig. 35 shows the cassette 354 with buttons 356 programmable lock and placed near them LEDs 358. Buttons form a rectangular area with rounded ends in the direction along its long side. In comparison with Fig. 34, the LEDs are shorter in the direction along their UDL the United party (for example, shorter length), but have a greater width (e.g., greater thickness). In addition, devices in the form of buttons/LEDs, shown in Fig. 34 and Fig. 35, located in different places of the cassette.

In Fig. 36, Fig. 37 and Fig. 38 shows the various options for the trays (or racks) for receiving cassettes. The tray can give personnel an opportunity of communication with the cartridge. Communication can be remote. At that time, when the tray is in the tray, may also be implemented programming RFID tags.

In Fig. 39 shows the area 360 workstation. The workstation may include one or more computers and one or more storage devices for storing data. In the working station can be carried out maintenance tapes. For example, in the workstation, the cartridge can be refilled or performed its maintenance. In the workstation may also be modified or read by the RFID cassette. To transfer information between service personnel and the RFID tag can be used with keyboard and display. You can read the serial number of the cartridge. The display can be displayed in the information sent to the data archive about the specific cartridge. In Fig. 39 also shows the workstation 370, which includes a keyboard 362, the display device 364 gr the expression, Luggage 366, store 368 and cassette 372. Area 360 workstation also contains another workstation 374.

The cassette can be opened in the tray of the workstation. In an alternative embodiment of the invention the tray remotely communicates with the cartridge for firing the cartridge. For example, as an additional level of security, the cassette can be performed without the presence of an external keypad. On the tray can be placed programmable buttons castle. Button perceive the access code to open the cassette. Access code actuates a solenoid to move the tongue latch in the unlocked position. The tray may also contain a liquid crystal panel for displaying information about the contents of the cassette or the information associated with the access code.

In Fig. 36 shows the tray 376, which may be omitted tape 378, as shown by the arrow. The cassette in the tray may be partially surrounded them on all four sides. The cartridge may be fixed or locked in the tray. In Fig. 36 also shows the button 380 programmable lock, LCD panel line 382 and 384 system port. In an alternative embodiment, the tray-stand can be used for maintenance of the cassette in place (i.e., ATM)and not in the workstation.

<> In Fig. 37 and Fig. 38 shows an alternative design options, in which the cassette can be pushed into the tray as shown by the arrows. The cassette in the tray may be partially surrounded them on three sides. In Fig. 37 shows the cassette 386, tray 388 and panel 390 buttons programmable lock and LEDs. In Fig. 38 shows the cartridge 392, 394 stand having a support 396 for hinged lid and latch 398 castle.

As described above, a means of payment (e.g. Bank notes, coupons, etc.)intended to be inserted into the cassette, can be of different sizes. For example, length, width and height of the banknotes can be different in different countries. The size of banknotes of various denominations can also be different in the same country. However, it is necessary to ensure correct placement of the means of payment in the cassette so that the mechanism gripping device could extract them properly. The size (e.g., height) of the payment means a particular type may be a factor limiting their use in the cartridge of the particular size. Therefore, for the payment of funds of different sizes may require appropriate cassettes of various sizes. This implies that you may have a large number of cassettes of different configurations.

One of the embodiments and the gain is focused on creating tapes, which can be used for payment of various types and sizes. The total number of configurations cassettes can be reduced. Therefore, can be reduced, costs can be reduced number of parts and can be enhanced reliability.

One cartridge may have a different configuration. The cartridge may be adjustable to accommodate various means of payment size. The cartridge may have a guiding system. The guiding system may contain one or more guides that are next to each other. For example, the guides, which are essentially parallel, can be spaced relative to each other in a direction essentially perpendicular to their axes. The guiding system can be adjustable. For example, the variable may be the height of the guide. That is, the guide may be adjustable in the vertical direction. Therefore, the same cassette can be adjusted so that they are able to fit banknotes of the first height and banknotes of the second height.

In Fig. 40 shows a plot of cover 400 cassette having a guiding system. The guiding system may be operatively connected to the lid of the cassette. In Fig. 40 shows a system 402 guides having two Assembly 40, 406 guides. However, it should be understood that the cassette can be used more or fewer sub-Assembly guides. The guiding system guides, align, Orient, positions, lock means of payment in the cassette comes in contact with them and/or serves as a support for them. For example, the guiding system can be used to prevent substantial vertical skew payment of funds in the stack of money in the cassette. That is, the guiding system can be used to maintain the proper position of the means of payment in the cassette.

Assembly guide may include a guide, the pad and/or the spacer item. For example, Assembly guide may contain only a guideline. Another option Assembly guide may include a guide and an overlay (e.g., casing). Another option Assembly guide may include a guide spacer part (or spacer parts) and the pad.

The pad is located next to the rail. The cover plate may be operatively connected with the guide. The cover plate can be connected with the guide with the possibility of its removal. Cover increases (in the direction vertically downwards) the height of the Assembly guide or RA is standing before him. The overlay can be placed so that it comes in contact with the upper edge of the means of payment in the cassette. Of course, between the payment means and the strap can be left clearance for free operation and/or to means of payment could slip (for example, under the action of the pusher plate) relative to the lining.

Spacer item is located next to the rail. The spacer part is located between the guide plate or an intermediate element between them. The spacer component may be operatively connected with the guide and with an overlay. Spacer part may be connected with the rail or strap, or with both of these parts: the guide and cover plate, with the possibility of its removal. To increase the (vertical) height of the Assembly guide can be used one or more spacer components. That is, the Assembly of the guide can contain multiple removable spacer parts, located between the rail and plate.

Guide may not be entirely connected with the lid of the cassette (e.g., bonded to, or made as a single whole with it). Rail can be connected to the cover with the possibility of its removal, which allows the use of rails of different sizes with the same cover. So about the time, Assembly guide can be connected to the lid of the cassette being removable.

Assembly guide can be designed in such a way that when the lid of the cassette is in the closed position, it is in contact with the means of payment in the cassette or is right next to him. For example, the structure for fixing the banknotes in the cassette may contain plot of the cassette bottom, banknotes, in contact with the bottom site (for example, rely on it), strap, made in such a way that it restricts the movement of banknotes vertical spacer part connected to the pad, the guide connected with the spacer part, and a guide connected to the lid of the cassette. Assembly guide may have other configurations placement of banknotes or their combination. For example, in the construction for fixing banknotes support for banknotes can serve as an Assembly guide.

Appropriate guides, pads and spacer elements may be of various types, shapes, sizes and can be made of different materials. Thus, in a single cassette can be many different guides. For example, each of the components, which are the guide and the cover plate, may have a body, usually U-shaped, and between them is essentially flat stud detail. In addition, the connection guide/spacer detail/overlay of the first Assembly may have a different thickness than the connection guide/spacer detail/overlay of the second Assembly.

In Fig. 40 also shows a subassembly 404 of the guide containing the guide 408, the spacer part 410 and the pad 412 (and break lines shown its contour). In addition, in Fig. 40 shows a subassembly 406 guide containing the guide 408 and the pad 412 (and break lines shown its contour). When equal to the height of the guide and lining Assembly 404 guide is made in such a way that stands out in the direction of the bundles of money at a greater distance than Assembly 406 of the guide.

In Fig. 41 shows the guide 414, the spacer part 416 and the cover plate 418, which may be linked together with the possibility of their separation, forming consisting of them Assembly guide. In Fig. 42 shows that the guide plate 414 and 418 may also be linked together with the possibility of their separation, forming the other consisting of them Assembly guide.

Details Assembly guide can be sealed together by fastener or connector. The connector may be removable. In Fig. 43 and Fig. 44 shows the species with the lower side rails, the on with the guide, which is nearest to the lid of the cassette. In Fig. 43 shows the connector 420 adapted for fastening details Assembly guide (for example, the guide spacer parts and pads) with each other with the possibility of their separation. In Fig. 44 shows a similar connector 422. In Fig. 43 break lines marked guide 424, spacer item 426 and plate 428. In Fig. 44 break lines marked guide 430 and plate 432. Can be used with the connector of any type that provides the connection details Assembly guide with the possibility of their separation.

Details Assembly guide (for example, guide spacer part and the plate) may also be appropriate connections other first processing of iron for additional fasteners and/or for additional rigidity. The connection between the two parts Assembly guide may be similar to the connection blocks type designer "LEGO" LEGO®). For example, the spacer component may have one or more ridges or protrusions) sportowego connection on one side and one or more recesses (or grooves) on the opposite side. Combs sportowego connection of the first spacer parts can be aligned with the recesses in the second spacer parts in order to ensure the possibility of fastening the other is with each other through the clutch. Can also be used other methods of attachment, connection, or bond.

In the illustrative embodiment, the connector may include an elastic or flexible tabs or fingers (for example, cantilever legs). The connector may pass through aligned holes (or slits or openings) in the details Assembly guide. Console tabs can snap into place or open to the outside, providing a locking connection with the lower side of the guide. The connector may also have a head at the opposite end. Head may be adapted for engagement with the tool. The head may have a groove or ledge, to facilitate the insertion of the connector and/or its extract. When the connector is in a fixed or locked position, the head may be flush with the surface of the lining or be recessed relative to it.

In Fig. 43 shows the connector 420 with the tabs 434 and head (outer contour) 438. Fig. 44 shows the connector 422 436 feet and head (outer contour) 440. In the design means of gearing according to Fig. 43 distance from head to feet larger than the corresponding distance in Fig. 44. This is because the total thickness of the guide spacer parts and lining according to Fig. 43 is larger than the total thickness of aiming the th and lining according to Fig. 44.

In alternative embodiments of the invention the plate may move (e.g., a spring) in the direction of contact with a bundle of money. For example, a spring-loaded plate can be in continuous supporting contact with the means of payment.

The ability to create different configurations Assembly guide allows you to use the cartridge standard or ordinary or universal size for packs of payment instruments of various sizes. Thus, the universal cartridge may be used for payment of various size. The cartridge can act as a cassette of the same size, suitable for all". The configuration of the same cassette can be changed to fit banknotes of various sizes.

In Fig. 45 - 56 shows examples of different configurations of the Assembly guide for the universal cassette. In each of Figs. 45 - 56 the distance between the cassette bottom and the lid of the cassette (i.e., the distance "H") is the same. The system guides the cartridge can be configured or adjusted to reflect the payment means of different height.

In Fig. 45 shows the bottom 442 cassette, means of payment 444, guide 446 and cover 448 tape. Assembly guide contains only n is sending.

In Fig. 46 shows the bottom 442 cassette, means of payment 450, guide 452 and cover 448 tape. Means of payment 450 of Fig. 46 have a height of M2, which is less than the height of M1 money 444 of Fig. 45. Accordingly, the guide 452 of Fig. 46 has a height of R2, which is greater than the height R1 of the guide 446 of Fig. 45.

In Fig. 47 shows the bottom 442 cassette, means of payment 454, guide 456, plate 458 and cover 448 tape. In Fig. 47 payment means have a height of M3, which is less than the height of the M2 money 450 of Fig. 46. Guide 456 of Fig. 47 has a height of R3, which is greater than the height R2 of the guide 452 of Fig. 46. Thus, in the Assembly node of the guide of Fig. 47 can be used plate 458.

Height M12 payment of funds from Fig. 56 is less than the height M11 payment of funds from Fig. 55 which is less than the height M10 payment of funds from Fig. 54. Therefore, the composition of the Assembly of the guide of Fig. 55 may include a cover plate 460. Similarly, the composition of the Assembly of the guide of Fig. 56 may include two parts: spacer item 462 and plate 464. In other drawings shows the additional options link Assembly guide for the universal cassette.

In the variants shown in Fig. 54 - 56, may be used, or directing one is th the same height, or rails of different heights. Similarly, in the embodiments shown in Fig. 54 - 56, may be used to cover the same height or can be used pads of different heights. That is, the height of the guides, spacers parts and linings (and lids cassettes) can be different. Assembly guide can be arranged depending on the height of payment instruments that are inserted into the cartridge, or in accordance with it. Of course, other universal cassette may have other design options lid and bottom. For example, other cassettes can have a cover and bottom in different sizes and with different distance between them (for example, with different height values).

Sometimes the cassette can be loaded with an excessive amount of means of payment. Cassette loaded with an excessive amount of means of payment, can lead to problems. For example, overloading of the cassette can be connected jammed banknotes, capture dual banknotes, malfunction during the seizure and wear of the tape.

Illustrative variant embodiment of the invention prevents or reduces the frequency of use of the cassette loaded with an excessive amount of means of payment (or very full of them). In this embodiment, may be provided with means preventing the closing is risky cassette in the case if a cartridge is loaded with an excessive amount of means of payment.

The cassette is provided with an element or bracket, which is located in the vicinity of the stack means of payment. The bracket may be elastic. The bracket bends or creases or bends in response to a force caused by a bundle of money excessively loaded cassette. That is, the bracket is bent in response to downloading excessively large packs means of payment. For example, the bracket may be bent in the direction from the stack.

The bracket may be a separate part attached to the cassette. Alternatively, the bracket can be attached to a part of the cassette, for example, to the plate of the pusher tutu means of payment, or merged with it (for example, forming with it a whole). The bracket may be a plate pusher.

The pusher plate may be provided with an elastic bracket or parcel may protrude from the base plate. That is, in the view section (bottom) plot of the base plate may have a greater thickness (and more durable)than the top (end) of its plot. For example, the pusher plate may be in the context of a pyramidal shape. Can also be used in other ways. The base can be secured in the cassette to prevent it from moving excessively greater agreganos a bundle of money. However, the upper part (for example, the elastic arm) bent due to excessive loaded packs means of payment. An integral part of the pusher plate (for example, the upper end of the pusher plate may be bent in the direction from excessively loaded payment of funds due to the fact that the means of payment are putting pressure on her.

Cover of the cassette may have an edge (plot gearing, ledge, foot, bench or seizure), attached to or integrated with it (for example, forming with it a whole). The edge of the cover may be designed so that when the bracket is in a closed position or state (and able to engage), it is engaged with the elastic bracket (or rests). Engagement may prevent further movement of the cover in closed position. Therefore, the engagement can prevent the closing of the cover. By preventing the lid closed, if there is such a situation when loading or processing of individual cassettes can be made accessible and can be removed unnecessary means of payment. This design may ensure that there is a strong tamping or protection from him. When the bracket is in Pisogne condition, the cover can be closed.

In Fig. 57 shows a diagram of 488 design, PR is dommershausen downloading excessive amounts of money for tapes. The design contains a cassette 490, cap 492 tapes, basis 494 plate pusher and a flexible section 496 of the bracket, and the edge 498 of the cover. Section 496 of the bracket shown in a bent condition that causes siteplease contact with the edge 498. Therefore, closing the cover 492 is prevented.

In alternative designs, providing protection from excessive filling of the cartridge, the contact edges with a curved bracket may cause the generation of the output signal. For example, this contact may cause disconnection of the electrical switch. To specify the person who is hitting the download, the existence of a condition of excessive loading can be used led on the tape or other means of withdrawal. In yet another alternative design, the generation of the output signal may cause the detection of the fact of the flexible bending of the bracket. For example, can be measured stress in the bracket. When a predetermined level of mechanical stress can be powered led. Disable the led can also cause storage of data associated with excessive loading (for example, ID of the person making the download), in the storage device, for example, in a storage device of the cartridge.

Illustrative variant of the invention, e.g. the MS to increase security for cassettes with means of payment, which are, for example, tapes for cash at the ATM. The security system can be used biometric features while providing access to cartridges for banknotes.

In a possible embodiment, the credentials and/or identification of a person, attempt service ATM / cash machine, can be carried out on the basis of the appearance of the person and/or voice characteristics and/or other biometric information and/or information contained in the map. Therefore, for identification of a person can be used biometric features. The use of biometric characteristics can be implemented as described in U.S. patent No. 6023688. For example, the security system may be configured to identify the user by inputting biometric data, for example, by facial recognition, thumb print, scan, iris recognition, voice recognition or other features, or combinations thereof.

The security system can be used in a computer program recognition of a facial image together with your camera. The camera can be installed in the ATM. The camera can also be used for customers using the ATM transaction, or Luggage which may be a separate chamber. Luggage can be a built-in video camera, connected via universal serial bus (USB). The camera can be used to register images (e.g., digital image) of the person (or entity)that attempt maintenance or replenishment of ATM.

The ATM may include a locally stored database of people or the means of access to the database about people, access to which is carried out through the network. People, information about which is stored in the database is allowed to provide access to a secure container or protected area) ATM. In the secure container can be placed cassettes for banknotes. To determine or verify (for example, for verification or confirmation or denial of the existence of any information about the person in the database of authorized admission, may be used in a computer program recognition of a facial image. The processor may be controlled by a computer program in such a way that compares the recorded image with the images in the database. The recorded image can be represented by the corresponding data. Similarly, the database may contain data describing the image. Therefore, the comparison operation may stergatoarele comparison data, relevant images. The management computer program may be implemented locally or through a network. That is, the comparison can be performed locally or at a remote location.

Managing access to a secure container can be carried out by a control device lock. The control unit lock may be operative communication with the computer program recognition of a facial image. In order to open the secure container under different scenarios, the control unit lock can be replaced. For example, if a person is identified by a computer program recognition on the image of a person with a positive result, the control device lock may allow direct access to a secure container (e.g., to unlock or open).

In addition, ATM / cash machine can be equipped with a lock with double code (for example, an electronic lock)associated with the protected container. The control unit lock can be performed or programmed to receive two correct combinations or codes for the electronic lock to move the lock with double code in the open state. The control unit lock can be designed in such a way that if the identity of the person computer recognition software on picture the person produced a positive result, it automatically eliminates the need to enter one of these two combinations. That is, for the recognised person may need only to enter only one combination. In such a scenario, the person making the service, you must still enter the second hand in order to qualify for access to the secure container. However, this structure may facilitate or speed up access to a secure area. Consequently, it can be reduced the time required to replenish the ATM.

In addition, images of persons operating personnel can be recorded and saved in a database application program. Together with the facial image can also be saved and other data, such as time and date of granting access. The facial image can also be uploaded to a centralized database for centralized storage. Centralized processing means can perform control functions using the verified facial image of a person who has been granted the right to admission. For example, an authorization database can be updated the confirmed face. That is, instead of the outdated image of a human face can be used confirmed new face.

Together with the faces of man, entitled to access a particular tape (or service)in the database can also be recorded and stored sequence number of a particular cassette. Similarly, each cassette may have a corresponding stored data file. The data file on the tape may also contain a sequence number, the data about the images of people's faces, which has been granted access, the date and time.

The ability of the registration image data of a person serving a specific cartridge, and the ability to store those image data in correlated relation with other information (for example, with a serial number of the cassette may, in addition, to facilitate tracking of the cassette and to minimize fraud. The proposed design allows the tray-holder remembering tracked information related to the access to the cassette. Information associated with the access to the cassette, can be combined with additional tracked information related to security (for example, as described above) of a particular cassette. The ability to track and use information for specific cartridges may be provided in the manner described in U.S. patent No. 6109522, the disclosure of which is incorporated into this description in full by reference. In addition to the, the system that provides the functions of reception and delivery of images, can be in the form described in the patent application U.S. No. 09/991748 on November 23, 2001, the disclosure of which is incorporated into this description in full by reference. The system may include a digital video device "Diebold AccuTrack™", produced by firm "Diebold, Incorporated", which is the assignee of the present invention.

In addition, ATM / cash machine, equipped with an electronic lock with double code, to provide rights of access to the person, information which is not entered in the database of authorized admission, he may be required to maintain both hands. Can be also made a record of such access by unauthorized persons. The record may contain a picture of the person along with the date and time and unrecognized combination.

The security system may be arranged so that the right to immediate access to a protected container ATM could get only a small part of the authorized and registered staff. To further improve the security of the staff representatives of the recognized facial image, may also need to enter the correct combination for obtaining access rights to the secure container is ERU. To further enhance the security of staff representatives, the recognized facial image, you may also have the right to enter many combinations for obtaining access rights to the secure container. Before granting access may also require other biometric features.

Can also be used with other devices access. For example, requirements for service personnel requirement is mandatory to enter a combination also provides personnel an opportunity to transfer a hidden alarm. The alarm can be turned off after entering a predetermined code combination or password for alarm. Of course, can also be used with the device off, which does not require input combinations.

If the computer program of recognition of a facial image does not recognize the person, attempt obtaining the right to access to the ATM (and/or if you enter the wrong combination), hidden alarm can be turned off. The face of unrecognized person may also be stored in the database together with the date and time.

The security scheme may also provide the ability to track access to protected container. For example, information about the person to whom who has been granted access, together with the date and time can be saved in the data file to be referenced in the future. In the data file can also be saved and other data, for example, the amount of time during which the protected container, an outdoor person, was open.

In alternative embodiments, systems security computer program of recognition of facial images (and/or associated with other biometric features) may be used for other applications. For example, the security system can be adapted to the workstation, which is processed tapes. For example, the camera 366, available in workstation 370 of Fig. 39, can be used for registering a digital image of a person, attempt maintenance or replenishment cartridge for banknotes. The image may be compared with the authoritative database (as described above) to determine whether that person to allow access to the interior of the cassette.

In the illustrative embodiment, available in the cash feeder means of payment (or any other component) may include a container for the rejected payment. Container for rejected means of payment may include which is a private cassette or box. Specialized cassette serves as a receiver and store as defective and drawn back the means of payment. Rejected means of payment (for example, money or Bank cards or banknotes) can be the means of payment, which is defined by the ATM as having any problem (for example, unsustainable means of payment) and you do not want to give the client (for example, unpresentable means of payment). Means of payment, drawn back, may be the means of payment that were submitted to the client ATM, but were not taken by the customer for any reason.

Specialized cassette (which may be cited as here cassette to an unsuitable means of payment or cassette for rejected/retracted back payment of funds or the cartridge is rejected for payment) may contain more than one compartment for storing money. The compartments can be separated by one or more dividing walls. Thus, the rejected banknotes can be stored separately from bills drawn back. The cartridge is rejected for payment of funds may be inserted into the ATM (for example, ATM / cash machine type "automatic teller") in the empty state (for example, lack of payment when edst in the compartments).

As rejected banknotes and banknotes, inverted back, can be introduced into the cassette rejected for payment of funds through the receiving hole for the payment of funds available in the cassette for the rejected payment. Partition (for example, the guide cover) is a guide or direct means of payment (e.g. banknotes) in different respective compartments (e.g., in storage means of payment) with the introduction of payment means in the cassette for the rejected payment. Partition can be actuated by a lever or a Cam associated with the cartridge for the rejected payment. Control the movement of the dividing walls may make ATM controller, for example, the computer of the ATM. The ATM controller keeps track of the banknotes placed in each compartment. The ATM controller establishes communication banknotes drawn back, with a specific user account. The ATM controller may also be saved in a storage device and other information (e.g. date and time)related to the storage of banknotes in the cassette for the rejected payment.

In a possible embodiment, the cartridge is rejected for payment of funds has two compartments or storage separated Perego is odkai. In the first position (for example, in the closed position) partitioning the cartridge is rejected for payment of funds serves as the container for the rejected banknotes. For example, the rejected banknote may not be recognised or may be detected as a double bill. ATM / cash machine stores the rejected banknotes in store for the rejected payment funds available in cassette for rejected/retracted back means of payment.

In the second position (for example, in the open position) partitioning the cartridge is rejected for payment of funds serves as the container for bills drawn back. For example, banknote or banknotes issued by the client, can be dragged by the cash back after a predetermined period of time. ATM / cash machine stores the banknotes, absorbed back into the store for payment of funds, drawn back, available in cassette for rejected/retracted back payment of funds. Thus, the cassette for rejected/retracted back the means of payment may include two stores banknotes, separated by a movable partition.

The separation of the storage of banknotes prevents mixing of banknotes drawn back, and the rejected banknotes. A structure providing division of banknotes, koterayama in the cassette rejected for payment of funds, allows improved balance of banknotes in daily transactions. For example, the application user of the ATM that they were not received banknotes in transaction can be confirmed or rejected on the basis of the analysis of the banknotes stored in the storage for the payment of funds drawn back. The comparison can be carried out with less of a banknote processing, for example, without affecting the rejected banknotes. Consequently, decisions about the inconsistencies in the transaction can be simplified. The separation of the banknotes can also be used to detect faulty ATM machine or component.

Partition can be moved between open and closed positions by moving the lever (or Cam). The lever may be operatively connected to the transmission link of the drive mechanism, which, in turn, has operative connection with the separation wall. The lever may be actuated by the drive mechanism in a feed device of the ATM. The drive mechanism is engaged with the lever and moves it to the appropriate move a partition. To bring the lever in the movement can be used conventional drive mechanism. For example, the drive mechanism may include engine the actuator or cylinder or a solenoid. In the scheme of the drive partitioning engine can cause the turning or rotation of the lever that moves a partition. In another embodiment, the drive circuit partitioning cylinder can cause the movement of the Cam in the direction of slip (e.g., along the axis or horizontal), which also leads to the displacement of the partition. The ATM controller actuates the drive mechanism to move the lever or Cam. Therefore, the ATM controller controls the movement of the dividing partition, providing storage of rejected banknotes and banknotes drawn back, separately from each other in the same container or storage device.

For the separation of storage and compartments for banknotes can also be used a separator, for example, plate or sheet (which may be flexible). The separator may be stationary or movable. The separator may be included in a partition. The separator can be attached to the partition wall. The separator may be flexible and/or retractable. For example, the dividers may be able to rotate relative to the separator. In addition, section dividers can slide relative to the separa the ora, and the divider can serve as a guide for him. The separator can be attached to the partition wall or combined with it (for example, forming with it a whole).

The separator can be located mainly horizontally on the same level vertically to separate upper and lower compartments vertically. The upper compartment (e.g., located above the separator may be a compartment for the rejected payment means, and the lower compartment (for example, located under the separator may be a compartment for payment of funds drawn back. Bays rejected the means of payment and means of payment drawn back, can be placed in reverse order. In addition, the compartments can have guides, contributing to the direction, orientation, positioning and/or retaining placed in them the means of payment.

In an alternative embodiment, the design may contain a separator, located mainly in a vertical position, separating adjacent compartments (for example, the front and rear compartments horizontally. Adjacent compartments may also be offset at different angles. The cartridge is rejected for the means of payment may include storage for discarded means of payment and store for payment of funds, drawn back, which have different sizes. In the example, storage for the payment of funds drawn back, may have a greater size than a repository for discarded payment of funds to accommodate the inverted back of the bundle of bills (compared to individual notes that can be placed in a repository for discarded means of payment).

In Fig. 58 shows the cassette 500 rejected for payment of funds from the baffle 502, which is in the closed position. The lever 504 dividers are also shown in a closed (e.g., horizontal) position. The lever dividers can be located on the outer side of the cassette rejected for payment of funds, which is a transmission link of the drive mechanism. The rejected banknotes can be stored in a repository 506 rejected for payment. Partition 502 contains the separator 508 compartments, brackets 512, flexible guide 526 and the jumper 528. The brackets are designed as a single part with a jumper 528. The first end of each rail is connected to the brackets next to the jumper with the possibility of rotation. The second end of each rail is attached to the separator with the possibility of sliding. The separator is equipped with one or more grooves 530, which allow the legs of guide 532 526 glide about them being related the data with them through engagement.

In Fig. 59 shows the cassette 500 rejected for payment of funds from the baffle 502, which is in the open position. Banknotes are involved back, can be stored in the storage 510 for payment of funds drawn back. The lever 504 dividers shown in its open (e.g., vertical) position.

The lever and the bracket dividers are connected or linked to each other with a common axis, e.g. the axis of the elongated connecting element (for example, rod or shaft). For example, the lever may be connected to the bracket 512 dividers common shaft. Alternatively, the lever may be made as a single part with the bracket. Rotation of lever 504, performs a rotation around its axis, rotates the bracket (connected to the lever around the axis. The brackets are connected by jumper. Guide dividers are connected with a jumper. Therefore, rotation of the lever rotates the partition wall 502 between an open position and a closed position.

Brackets partitioning can be performed with this form (for example, mostly triangular), which contributes to the support of the dividing walls in the open position and the closed position. For example, the bracket moretime first edge 516 on one of its sides, meshing and the second edge 518 on the opposite side meshing. The edges of the bracket engages with the plot (or component) of the cassette, contributing to the support of the partition in the appropriate open or closed position.

Jumper 528 partitioning is similar to the comb teeth (or fork elements) 520, which engages with the wall of the cassette 522 near the receiving hole for the payment of funds available in the cartridge. The wall of the cassette has recesses (or grooves) 524, which are made with the ability to accommodate the teeth, being related through engagement. The grooves can be directed teeth (and, consequently, the jumper dividers) in the proper open position. Design in the form of teeth/grooves aligns jumper partition or support for her or her stability when the partition is in the open position. Jumper 528 partitioning also has teeth (or protrusions) 534, which are able to engage with the wall section of the cartridge when the partition is in the closed position. The protrusions 534 can similarly ensure alignment jumper partition or support for her or her stable is th when the partition is in the closed position.

In the embodiment of the invention shown in Fig and Fig. 59, the separator 508 partition is fixed. Brackets 512 partitioning rotate around the axis 514 (which may be the same axis around which rotates the lever), moving the partition wall in the open position. Move the jumper dividers in open position causes the bending of the guide partition. Foot rail is moved in the groove of the separator, allowing the guide to slide (in the direction from the inlet opening to the means of payment) under the divider. For simplicity in Fig. 59 the separator is not shown, but is visible in Fig. 63.

Arm 504 can be powered by turning. Rotation of the lever causes rotation of the brackets dividers and jumpers. Turn the jumper causes the movement of the partition from the closed position (Fig. 58) in the open position (Fig. 59). The arm can also be rotated in the reverse direction, which causes rotation of the dividing walls from an open position (that is, provisions for payment of funds drawn back to the closed position (i.e., in the receiving position, otraco the data are the means of payment).

In the example method of operation of the ATM (e.g., ATM-type automatic teller") contains placed therein, at least one cartridge for the rejected payment. The cartridge is rejected for payment of funds contains two compartments for storage. The cartridge is rejected for payment of funds contains storage for the rejected banknotes and storage for bills drawn back. ATM / cash machine performs a financial transaction for the client. For example, the ATM can perform a cash withdrawal. The ATM may determine whether the banknotes are acceptable or unacceptable condition. The operation of determining may include the use of a conventional sensor or reader device for banknotes (e.g., sensor dual banknotes, sensor dirty banknotes, sensor counterfeit banknotes, sensor torn banknotes, sensor naschityvaetsya banknotes, device authentication bills and/or sensor counterfeit banknotes or their combination). Unacceptable banknotes can be rejected, and may be transported for storage in the repository for the rejected payment funds available in the cassette for the rejected payment. Acceptable banknotes can be moved through an ATM p is the transportation and provided to the client (for example, the client that issued the request for the operation of cash) in the hole to issue banknotes, which is available to the client. However, ATM / cash machine pulls back any remaining withdrawn banknotes, previously issued to the client after a predetermined period of time. ATM transports involved back banknotes to store them in storage for bills drawn back, available in cassette rejected for payment.

It is clear that can be used other options for the design of the dividing partition and/or drive lever. For example, the partition may have a rapid connection or operative communication with a movable Cam actuator. The design of the drive to slide the Cam, causing a corresponding movement (e.g. rotation) of the dividing partition. Thus, to move the dividers can be used in other constructions of the actuator, for example, the design of the sliding actuator. In addition, to actuate the dividers can also be used in construction with the electric, magnetic, screw and mechanical drive (or combinations thereof).

The ATM controller (for example, ATM / cash machine type "automatic teller") also can is to determine the time, when the cassette compartment for the rejected payment completed, or when required service. The cartridge is rejected for payment of funds can be provided with an indicator of a large number of means of payment that is triggered at the moment when the amount of the payment means reaches a predetermined level. The principles of operation of the indicator a large number of payment means may be similar to the indicator of an insufficient quantity of means of payment, the description of which was given above. Indicator a large number of means of payment can be provided with each storage compartment, available in cassette rejected for payment. The ATM reads the powered or recipiency indicator of a large number of means of payment. After determining that the cassette compartment rejected for payment of funds is completed, from the ATM to authorized personnel may be transferred to one or more signals indicating the condition or status of the cassette for the rejected payment. Alternatively, if it is determined that one compartment of the cartridge with the two compartments are filled, then the ATM controller can be programmed to feed as rejected banknotes and banknotes drawn back into another empty compartment. Opisaniemopyta implementation (for example, RFID tags and so on)related to the tapes for the means of payment can also be applied to the tapes for the rejected payment.

In the illustrative embodiment, the cartridge is rejected for payment of funds contains a self-latching device for a partition. Partition cassette rejected for payment of funds may be automatically locked during extraction from the ATM and unlocked when it is inserted into the ATM. Elastic element (e.g. a spring) and the lock can be located on the outer side of the cassette for the rejected payment means, which is not its final drive chain drive mechanism. That is, the spring and the lock can be located on the side of the cassette opposite the side on which the gear element drive mechanism (which may be located above the lever dividers). Therefore, the drive partitioning and locking device for a partition can be located so that they do not interfere with each other.

In Fig. 60 shows the cartridge 500 for the rejected payment means, which partition 502 is self-latching. In Fig. 60 separating retainer is in the locked state the AI. It is shown in Fig. 60 cassette for the rejected payment means may be located outside of the ATM (or partially placed in the ATM). The locking device partition contains a spring 538 (for example, a torsional spring and lock 540. The torsional spring operatively connected with the partition wall 502. For example, the torsional spring can be quickly put into the engaged or connected with the bracket 512 partition. Bracket 542 castle 540 can be put into engagement with the bracket 544 spring 538 torsion. Each of the two elements: the lock bracket and the bracket torsion springs, contains incoming engages the tail section or hook that can be performed with J-shaped or U-shaped. The lock bracket is made movable slidable in the housing 546 castle. The lock bracket is provided with a hook 552. Bracket torsion springs provided with a hook 554. Locking engagement of the lock bracket and the spring bracket prevents you from moving a partition from the closed position to the open position. In other embodiments, the design can be used in other devices than the torsional spring, for example, the protrusion acting in such a way that engages with the hook of the lock bracket.

In Fig. 61 view in enlarged scale showing Zam is to 540 and J-shaped lock bracket 542 of Fig. 60. The castle contains a bias element 548, for example, a spring, which provides the application to the castle of force in the direction of its locked position. That is, the spring tends to hold the hook of the lock bracket is closer to the lock case. The castle can be a castle, acting without user interaction, that is, it can operate automatically without requiring human contact. Therefore, the locking device can be located inside the cassette rejected for payment of funds and to be available for people when the cassette is closed. In Fig. 61 also shows the protrusion 550 (for example, coming out button) on the lock bracket. The protruding button 550 is engaged with the element of the boot channel conveying device, for example, with the item mechanism, a gripping device.

Spring 538 torsion applies force offset in the direction of the closed position of the dividing partition. The torsion spring tends to hold the partition wall in the closed position. In Fig. 62 shows the normal position of the J-shaped bracket torsion springs. However, as described above, the drive partition (for example, able to engage with lever dividers) can overcome the force of the torsion spring (or valid against it), eramosa the partition wall in the open position. When the partition is in the open position (shown in Fig. 63), the torsional spring is compressed and tends to return back to the position shown in Fig. 62.

When you insert a cassette rejected for payment of funds into the feeder means of payment protruding button 550 is engaged with the element of the boot channel conveying device. This engagement causes relative movement of the bracket 542 castle to the torsional spring. The movement of the lock bracket at a predetermined distance allows you to release the torsion spring from the castle. That is, the move button 550 castle is able to overcome the force of the spring 548 lock to move the bracket 542 castle. When unlocking the lock bracket is moved in the direction of the torsional spring at a sufficiently large distance in order to ensure that the release hook torsion springs of the hook lock or separation. In Fig. 62 shows the lock bracket is moved fully toward the spring 538 swirl.

When the cassette is fully inserted into the input device, the lock bracket is rosapenna position (see Fig. 62 and Fig. 63). When the torsion spring is released from the hook lock bracket, partition cassette rejected for payment of funds can be easily displaced the s (as described above) between the closed and open positions. Therefore, the bracket torsion springs can be rotated relative to the lock bracket (e.g., in the direction from the actuator partition. As shown in Fig. 63, the rotation of the torsion springs drive the partition in the counterclockwise direction may cause removing her hook out of alignment with the hook of the lock. That is, when the partition is moved by the actuator to the open position, the bracket torsion springs can be withdrawn against the force of its spring) from lock bracket. Similarly, when the partition is moved by the actuator to the closed position, the bracket torsion springs can be moved to the lock bracket. However, the locking engagement between the hook torsion springs and hook lock does not occur until until the lock bracket again will not be allocated from the torsion springs (or retracted).

During eject rejected for payment of funds from the conveying device external drive partitioning disengages from baffle (for example, disengages from lever dividers). Since the external drive is no longer controls the movement of the dividing partition, then partition freely rotated. Therefore, the torsional spring can be moved (i.e., to go back), setting the partition wall in its closed position (as shown in Fig. 62). Further the cartridge is rejected for payment of funds from the conveying device lock button disengages from the feed element to a gripping device. Since the channel element gripping device no longer holds the lock button, the spring 548 castle pulls the lock bracket toward the lock case. That is, as the eject bracket lock (due to the spring force of the lock) is also moved further away from the torsion spring until such time as they shall enter into locking engagement with their ends in the form of hooks (as shown in Fig. 60). Power load of the spring 548 lock can be set large enough to hold the fixation of the partition in the closed position. That is, when the tape is completely removed from the conveying device, the spring lock prevents disengagement of the hook lock and hook torsion springs entered into engagement with each other. Thus, the dividing wall of the cassette for the rejected payment means can be locked during transport.

When the partition is in its closed position, the lever may be respectively positioned in its horizontal resolution is stalnom position (or alternatively in any other suitable position). After removing the cassette from the ATM lever is locked in its horizontal position. Thus, when the cassette is again inserted into the ATM, its lever may be in the proper position (or to have proper orientation) in order to engage with a drive partition. When the cartridge is rejected for payment of funds extracted from the ATM, the user with the appropriate privileges can remove banknotes from the storage means of payment for waste and repository for the payment of funds drawn back. Banknotes can be removed after unlocking the lock mechanism of the dividing partition. In Fig. 64 shows an open cassette 560 rejected for payment, containing cap 562. Area dividers can also be seen as an area of "cover". In Fig. 64 also shows the lever 564 dividers, jumper 566, brackets 568, guide 570 and the separator 572.

The lock status of a partition (for example, the guide cover) cassette ATM can be automatically changed in response to movement of the cassette relative to the ATM. That is, the partition is locked or unlocked. Then the lock status of a partition can be re-auth is automatically changed in response to the opposite movement of the cassette relative to the cash machine.

In some embodiments, the structures of the banknote can be extracted when the partition is locked in the closed position. For example, after removing the cover tape separator may be partially raised. Since the partition is left in its closed position, can be prevented closing of the cassette by the user (i.e., closing the lid), if the partition is in the open position (which may be incorrect position of the lever to engage the lever/actuator when inserted into the ATM). Partition cassette rejected for payment of funds may be blocked during the time when the cassette is outside of the ATM and unlocked during the time when the cassette is in the ATM. The locking device allows the cassette to the rejected money to stay in a healthy state.

In an alternative embodiment of the invention the lever dividers can be placed in a feed device (or external drive mechanism so that when the cartridge is rejected for payment of funds from the conveying device, the lever automatically returns to the output position, setting the partition wall in its closed position Further extraction cartridge leads to lock the partition in its closed position. In this embodiment of the invention, the separating wall is able to be freely opened and closed without action any load from the torsion spring.

In Fig. 65 and Fig. 66 shows the types of closed cassette 573 rejected for payment. In Fig. 65 on the front view in perspective showing the cassette 573 rejected for payment, containing the handle 574 to carry, the lever 575 latch and lever 576 partition.

The slot 584 card connected to the device input device card reader used to read the data encoded on the card. The ATM may also include other input devices, for example, a biometric reader, which take the customer entered data identifying, for example, the fingerprint scan data iris data retina-scan, the data of the topography of the face, voice data or other data entered, which provide data used to identify an individual user. The example of the ATM, which uses the input device, biometric data and other input devices shown in U.S. patent No. 6023688.

Keypad 586 contains a number of buttons that can be powered by the client to enter data into the ATM. Function keys 588 poses which enable the client to respond to the prompt displayed on the screen. Display 590 may be a touch screen display, which enables data output through the image displayed on the display screen, and provides customers with the ability to perform data entry, placing a finger near the screen. Crack 594 for issuance can also be used for other documents from mechanisms to print tickets, mechanisms for printing Bank checks and other devices that put signs on the means of payment in the course of performing transactions via ATM. These features are described user interface of the ATM is just an example, and in other embodiments the invention, the user interface may include other components and/or features and/or arrangements. For example, in another embodiment of the layout slot for the issue of receipts can be located at the location of the slit for the issuance of the mini-statements and Vice versa. Similarly, the card slot may be located at the location of the slit for issuing receipts and Vice versa.

In Fig. 69, Fig. 70 and Fig. 71 ATM 580 of Fig. 68 is shown, respectively, in the front view, top view and side view.
