The present invention relates to a method for configuring the machine for processing of banknotes, the implementation of which is to identify not suitable for circulation of banknotes set the threshold value for the measured parameter sensors banknotes.

In the known methods of tuning machines for processing of banknotes, the implementation of which to identify unfit for circulation of banknotes set the threshold value for the measured parameter sensors banknotes, the operator must select and specify an acceptable threshold value for the measured parameter sensors banknotes. These are specified by the operator threshold values are used in subsequent machine for processing banknotes to sort of processed banknotes are suitable and not suitable for treatment through their referral machine for processing of banknotes, for example, in various foster trays.

The disadvantage of this method consists primarily in the fact that the job is acceptable thresholds measured by the sensors of the machine for processing banknotes parameters of banknotes is for the operator extremely difficult and time consuming operation. The assumption is made already defined, for example, a manufacturer of machines for processing banknotes thresholds change that is impossible. Emerging issues related, for example, aging or contamination of the machine is to handle bills or amendments, you make to yourself of processed banknotes. In this case, the assignment operator, even only slightly inflated threshold value or more slightly elevated thresholds banknotes, which as such is no longer fit for circulation, will be classified machine for processing banknotes as suitable for treatment. When setting the same operator slightly lower threshold value or more slightly low threshold values of the banknote, which is essentially suitable for treatment will be classified machine for processing banknotes as not suitable for further treatment. The result of processed banknotes will be sorted into suitable and not suitable for treatment in accordance with the requirements of the operator.

Based on the foregoing, the present invention was based on the task to develop a way to configure the machine for the processing of banknotes, which would allow to identify unfit for circulation of banknotes to specify threshold values for the measured parameter sensors bills without participation of the operator, respectively, without having to choose or set a threshold operator.

This task is solved by the distinguishing features presented in claim 1 of the claims.

Proposed in the invention, the method of configuring the machine for processing the TCI banknotes, in the exercise of which is to identify not suitable for circulation of banknotes set the threshold value for the measured parameter sensors banknotes, is that select at least one suitable to conversion bill, choose at least one unfit for circulation banknote selected banknotes processed in a machine for handling banknotes, while retaining in the memory the received data using at least one sensor, and the processing results stored in the memory of the data obtained using at least one sensor, set at least one threshold value for the measured at least one sensor parameter banknotes.

The advantage of the invention is primarily in the fact that the operator of the machine for processing banknotes may at any time change the threshold value for the measured parameter sensors banknotes without any complicated setting operations, selecting suitable and not suitable for handling banknotes, according to the results of the analysis of which will occur subsequent sorting of banknotes into the machine for processing. Selected by the operator are suitable and not suitable for handling banknotes are processed with this machine for processing banknotes in a special mode, and a threshold value or threshold values are set Masha is Oh for handling banknotes, accordingly, its control unit automatically in accordance with the properties of banknotes selected by the operator and classified them, respectively, as appropriate and as are not suitable for treatment. Because the processing of the selected operator is suitable and not suitable for circulation of banknotes machine for processing banknotes is carried out by a method that does not differ essentially from all other known operator processes, respectively regimes processing of banknotes, is extremely simple method of setting the threshold values, which does not require any participation by the operator or any control on his part.

Other advantages of the present invention are presented in the dependent claims and described in more detail below on the example of one of the variants of its implementation with reference to the accompanying drawing.

Attached to the description of the drawing shows a schematic design of a machine for processing banknotes, for regulation which is proposed in the invention, the method comprising the set certain thresholds for sensors used for detection is not suitable for circulation of banknotes.

The drawing shows a machine 1 for processing banknotes, which has a boot tray 20, which are processed BA is knotty 10, i.e. banknotes that you want to sort on suitable and not suitable for treatment. Stowed in the boot pocket 10 banknotes one by one individually separated from the stack by using the appropriate device 25 and transferred them into the transport system 30. The conveyor system 30 individual banknotes are moved through the measuring device 41.

The measuring device 41 includes at least one sensor, a signal which allows to make a conclusion about the condition of a particular banknotes for its evaluation and classification as either suitable or not suitable for treatment. As a sensor or sensors of the measuring device 41 can be used, for example, optical (light) sensors working in tandem with acceptable light sources and reflected from the recording analyzed specific notes or passed through her light, such as optical radiation with a certain wavelength or optical radiation in a certain wavelength range. In addition to the optical sensors of the measuring device can be used and other sensors that can register, for example, acoustic and/or mechanical and/or thermal and/or magnetic and/or electrical properties of the particular analyze of the banknote. Using these sensors can in order to get information, for example, the degree of contamination of the banknote or the presence of damage or presence of foreign objects such as staples or sticky tape, which affect the results of the assessment of the suitability of the analyzed banknotes for circulation.

The signals from sensors measuring device 41 are received in the control unit 40, which may be formed, for example, a microprocessor with appropriate memory and which on the basis of these signals determines suitable analyzed whether the banknote to the treatment or not. With this purpose, received from the measuring device 41, the signals are compared by the control unit 40 with predetermined threshold values stored, for example, in his memory.

The control unit 40 depending on state banknotes provides control signals to the existing conveyor system 30 switches the valves 31 and 33, which, for example, suitable for handling banknotes are diverted to the first output tray 32, and is not suitable for handling banknotes are redirected to the second output tray 34. In the conveyor system 30 of the machine 1 for processing banknotes can be provided and other switches distributors, respectively receiving trays, which in the drawing is conventionally marked the continued 35 transport system.

To control the machine 1 DL the processing of banknotes and enter operator commands and data is associated with a block 40 of the control device 45 I / o, which can consist, for example, of a keyboard and display. With the keyboard, the operator can enter various commands or to choose different modes of processing of banknotes, and the display may display the results of processing of banknotes or different instructions with the instructions of the operator to perform certain actions.

To set or select one or more thresholds, beyond which the analyzed parameters of banknotes they are classified as not suitable for treatment, the operator selects any number of banknotes, which he classifies as unfit for circulation, i.e. which have a deviation from the norm, such as pollution, damage, staples, tape, etc. in a Similar way, the operator selects any number of banknotes, which he classifies as suitable for treatment, i.e. that, for example, have at least a minor soiling and/or damage, not prevent further circulation of banknotes.

Using block 45 I / o operator selects the mode of operation of the machine 1 for processing banknotes in accordance with which it is possible to set one or more threshold values, on the basis of which is determined by the suitability of banknotes for circulation.

Thereafter, under control of control unit 40, the operator is offered, for example, by our the Oia relevant instructions on the display device 45 I / o is first placed in the input tray 20 banknotes, which classified them as not suitable for treatment. Then placed in the input tray banknotes classified as not suitable for treatment, individually separated from the stack by a suitable device 25 and fed them into the transport system 30. The measuring device 41, respectively, the existing sensor or existing sensors, outputs, respectively, give characterizing the analyzed banknotes signals, which are transmitted to the control unit 40. The data contained in the signals from the measuring device 41 may unchanged stored in the memory of the control unit 40. Similarly, the signals from the measuring device 41 can be pre-processed in the control unit 40 and to retain in his memory the data obtained from the results of such processing. Processed banknotes move the conveyor system 30 under the control of the control unit 40, for example, the second output tray 34.

After processing all classified as not suitable for circulation of banknotes to the operator by displaying the relevant instructions on the display device 45 I / o features to be placed in the input tray 20 banknotes classified as suitable for treatment. Further processing suitable for circulation of banknotes is similar to that described to enter the treatment is not suitable for handling banknotes, when this is received when processing data is also stored in memory unit 40 of the control and treated banknotes are printed, for example, in the first output tray 32.

Next, the control unit 40 on the basis of its stored data relating to suitable and not suitable for handling banknotes, determines the sensor or sensors of the measuring device 41 one or more threshold values that are set so that the banknote is classified by the operator as not suitable for treatment, and machine 1 for processing banknotes were classified as not suitable for treatment. Accordingly, the banknote is classified by the operator as appropriate to the case, shall be classified and machine 1 for processing banknotes as suitable for treatment.

The control unit 40 when setting them to the threshold value or threshold values can define a threshold value or a threshold on the basis of its stored data and to store the received threshold value or obtained threshold values in its memory for later use. However, in another embodiment, can also pre-define a set of threshold values and store them in the memory of the control unit, for example, in the manufacture of machine 1 for processing banknotes. In this case, the control unit 40 will be in birotica existing threshold value or the threshold value, which most closely match its stored data.

After defining or choosing the threshold value or threshold values can be erased stored in the memory unit 40 of the control data. Later in the course of the subsequent processing of banknotes, i.e., they sort on do not fit and suitable to the treatment machine 1 for processing banknotes uses a threshold value or threshold values stored in the memory of the control unit 40, respectively, selected from the memory unit 40 of the control.

To improve the reliability or efficiency of sorting banknotes are suitable and not suitable for handling banknotes of each type you need to define, respectively, to choose their own threshold values as banknotes of each type have their own physical properties, which, as a rule, differ significantly from the properties of the banknotes of another type. It means that the above process of determining, respectively, the choice of thresholds based classified as not suitable, as well as suitable for circulation of banknotes that you must perform to banknotes of each denomination of each currency, which is expected to be processed by machine 1 for processing banknotes. Accordingly, during subsequent processing of banknotes for possible job match is its threshold value or corresponding threshold values, on the basis of which the processed banknotes resortreviews on suitable and not suitable for treatment, first the operator is or machine 1 for processing banknotes is determined by the type of processed banknotes.

Along with the above approach, providing for placement in a machine for processing banknotes initially classified as not suitable for handling banknotes, and then classified as suitable for circulation of banknotes in the mode of operation of the machine for the processing of banknotes, which is defined threshold value or set of threshold values in the input tray 20 can also be placed classified as not suitable and as suitable for handling banknotes, provided that they can clearly be distinguished from each other when the processing machine 1 for processing banknotes. For this purpose it is possible to use, for example, the separator card inserted between the stack classified as not suitable and stack classified as suitable for circulation of banknotes. When the processing of banknotes, the control unit 40 based on the signals from the measuring device 41 detects such separation map, and can accurately detect the delimiter between unsuitable and suitable for handling banknotes.

It is obvious that the above process of determining or selecting a threshold of testing the response can be performed in reverse order, i.e. put it into a machine for processing banknotes are first classified by the operator as suitable for handling banknotes, and then classified them as not suitable for handling banknotes.

Similarly, instead of the above-described separate premises in a machine for processing banknotes classified as not suitable and classified as suitable for conversion, you can also place all of the selected number of banknotes of one stack. In this case, it is possible to additionally provide for the mode in which the operator using the device 45 I / o points, for example in percent, the proportion classified as unfit for circulation of banknotes. If, for example, is not suitable for handling banknotes operator classified as 10% of the total number of banknotes, it is precisely this value is specified using the device I / o. When the control unit 40, by analyzing the above-described path stored in its memory and apply to all selected notes data that defines, for example, the degree of contamination and/or damage to individual notes and/or the degree of deviation of the other parameters from the norm. The results of this analysis the data obtained for 10% of banknotes from all of them selected number with the greatest degree of contamination and/or damage and/or characterized by the highest degree of QCD is onine other parameters from the norm, used to determine or select a threshold value or threshold values.

In the above-stated number of selected bills must include at least one unfit for circulation banknotes and at least one suitable to conversion bill. However, it should be noted that more than a selected amount, respectively, suitable and not suitable for circulation of banknotes processed by machine 1 for processing banknotes in the mode corresponding to the setting of threshold values or threshold values, the best results are achieved when defining or choosing the threshold values on the basis of which the banknotes are sorted into suitable and not suitable for conversion.

Along with the above criterion for classifying banknotes are suitable and not suitable for conversion, you can use other criteria for their classification, which depend on state banknotes. For example, asking an additional threshold value, the banknote can be classified as suitable and not suitable for use in ATMs. Suitable for use in ATMs, banknote usually must meet higher requirements regarding their condition than banknotes, which are considered generally suitable for conversion.

It should also be noted that the term "threshold" is not the debtor is about to be regarded as a fixed setpoint for the measured one or more sensors of the measuring device 41 parameters of banknotes. Moreover, it is also possible to use different functions, interpolating, approximations, etc. that describes the function of sorting banknotes, allowing desired sort analyzed banknotes.
