The present invention relates to a device for handling banknotes, having a transport system with several conveyor sections to move the banknotes.

Such a device for handling banknotes known as a machine for counting banknotes and/or device for sorting banknotes and/or device for receiving and/or issuing of banknotes, providing transportation of banknotes required from their individual units or nodes, respectively, in their individual units or nodes. Not implying any restrictions (the volume of the present invention), in more detail below addresses the special problems associated with devices for banknotes, as proposed in the invention, the solution is most preferable to use in relation to these devices for receiving banknotes.

In the application EP 0811208 B1 presents a variant of this device. While banknotes come in packs, are separated individually inspected, authenticated banknotes by using the first separate switch allocator is sent to intermediate the cashier or the cashier for staging and not authenticated banknotes with subsequent second separate switch allocator sent in a separate pocket of the return of banknotes. If the user or payer agrees with Windows is telnum receiving authenticated banknotes, the last of the intermediate service using the first and second separate switch distributors are redirected to the final checkout, made in the form of a tape.

The disadvantage of this system is the need to have separate nodes in a hard depending on the choice of the location of the arrow distributors.

In publishing SA 2299827 A1 describes a device for handling banknotes, which is the closest to the invention by the technical nature. This unit has a transport system with several conveyor sections to move the banknotes, which, in turn, has a distribution switch device located between the two branches of the conveyor sections of the conveyor section, driven in two directions to move it notes in two mutually opposite directions. In this case, the branching conveying sections refers to the transport node, in which the banknotes, for example, with the arrow dispenser can be redirected to different transport areas, and under the conveyor section to move the banknotes in two mutually opposite directions by means of this transport section, which is connected, respectively, connected with the eye control device for the processing of banknotes in order to ensure the ability to move the banknotes in this shipping area in two opposite directions.

In known from SA 2299827 A1 device for handling banknotes distribution switch device has several components included in different modules, which complicates the operation of the device during the processing of banknotes having different configuration, as well as the elimination of bottlenecks banknotes.

Based on the foregoing, the present invention was used to find a solution that would allow easy and flexible way to implement different variants of embodiment of the device for handling banknotes.

The solution to this problem in accordance with the invention is that the distribution switch device is a distribution switch module with at least four inputs/outputs, which is a separate unit, performed primarily removable or retractable, for example for maintenance, and/or disclosed, or folding, for example, to remove the jammed banknote. While such a device is particularly compact.

In comparison with known systems proposed in the invention is a device for handling banknotes allows flexible use of the distribution switch device as separate structural node in the device for handling banknotes having different configuration, and provides simple Troubleshooting ZAT the ditch banknotes, emerging onto the transport plots the distribution switch device.

In addition, the proposed in the invention, the solution allows you to connect, for example, in the device for receiving banknotes individual components of this device, such as a receiving pocket, credit pockets, interim services and/or end office, in any combination with separate I/o distribution switch module. This connection can be made very compact and dependable, for example, the required external dimensions of the device for handling banknotes.

Below the invention is described in more detail by the example of variants of its implementation with reference to the accompanying drawings, and it should be noted that some features presented in the dependent claims and/or listed in the description of the embodiments can also be applied independently from each other and from that presented in the main claim of the object of the invention is preferably in other devices for handling banknotes, other devices for banknotes. Attached to the description of the drawings in particular, it is shown:

1 schematically in the side view shows a device 1 for receiving banknotes. Such a device 1 for receiving banknotes, it is preferable to perform a modular design that allows you to simplify the product and its various modules in accordance with various requirements of what Rovaniemi, the requirements of different users for this kind of product, although in another embodiment, all components discussed below can be combined into a single, not a modular design. It means that different functional components, connecting them between a unified interface units, to collect preferably in a single device 1 for receiving banknotes, with the necessary parameters and functionality. In this case, the device 1 for receiving banknotes may consist of, for example, from the basic module 2 and several optional modules, which include interim cash 6, cassettemaster 3 and end cashier 4 in the form of cassettes 4 and at least part of which is primarily cassettemaster 3 and end cashier 4, preferably placed in the safe 5.

To this end the main unit 2 has a metal mounting frame, the so-called chassis 14, which is the supporting element of the device 1 for receiving banknotes. To chassis mounted all the components of the device for receiving the banknotes. The chassis 14 is self-supporting and is a physical device with external devices, for example, with ATM, which is embedded in the device 1 for receiving banknotes. While ATM / cash machine forms the outer shell of the device 1 for receiving banknotes and has apart from the other remote control, which signal wires connected to the control block 13, included in the basic module 2.

To the chassis 14 of the main unit 2 are attached cassettemaster 3 and/or intermediate cashier 6. The chassis 14 of the main unit 2 preferably unvarying design regardless of, are there plans to provide a device for receiving banknotes interim cash 6 or not. For installation in the machine chassis has mounting points, which can be hung from the main module 2. Such attachment points designed for continuous perception of the weight of the device 1 for receiving banknotes.

Below in separate sections describe in more detail the design and operation of individual modules.

MAIN MODULE

The basic design

The basic module 2, which is shown in more detail, in particular, in figure 2, is designed as a device for checking banknotes and contains as functional nodes boot pocket 7, return the pocket 19, the device 8 single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack, the measuring system 10 and the control block 13, which are mounted on the chassis 14.

Core 2 also contains the transport system, through which banknotes are moved between different nodes. In addition to the other transport system has, for example, transport Uch the drain 9 with the function of the alignment of banknotes, below briefly named the leveling section 9 and which is designed for single-piece movement of banknotes after the piece separated from the stack by using intended for this purpose, the device 8 from the loading pocket 7 to the measuring section 24 of the measuring system 10. This measuring section of the next adjacent conveyor section, hereinafter referred to as processing portion 11, which is designed to further movement of banknotes after passing through the measuring section 24 of the measuring system 10.

The processing portion 11 terminates in a distribution switch module 33, which serves as a switch switchgear and which banknotes on the results of their inspections are forwarded to the next or the next conveyor section 99 leading to the return pocket 19 or on the next conveyor section 107 leading to the intermediate cashier 6, or the next conveyor section 100, leading through cassettemaster 3 to end the cashier 4. Possible ways to move the banknotes in the device 1 for receiving indicated in figures 1, 2 and 7 by broken lines 98.

Unit 13 controls among other things controls the driving node 12, which are driven individual elements 8, 9, 10, 24, 33, 99, 100, 107 transport systems.

Load/return the banknotes at

Boot pocket 7 is designed to be placed in him paid bills loosed (loose) packs. The user can put in the boot pocket the whole bundle of banknotes. Return the pocket 19 is used to return to the payer of the so-called rejected banknotes. The rejected banknotes are banknotes that the measuring system 10 is not able to correctly identify or analyze because, for example, misalignment of the banknote or too fast moving and/or due to other reasons for return, such as involvement in a device for banknotes of multiple superimposed one on another banknote. After passing through the processing section 11 of the banknote, preferably without intermediate accumulation, redirected distribution switch module 33 on the conveyor section 99 in return pocket 19.

Boot pocket 7 and return the pocket 19 in the preferred embodiment, can be performed as a combined boot-receiving pocket, described, for example, in the application PCT/ER/01902, which in this respect is hereby incorporated into this description by reference. The boot and the receiving pockets 7, 19 thereby separated from each other only by a thin movable intermediate plate bottom 22 are closed and the total rotary cap (or is the hood) 23, which in the closed position shown in the drawing, a solid line and an open position in which it opens the access to these pockets - with a dashed line. When placing a sheet of material (banknotes) in the device for receiving the intermediate plate bottom 22 when the cover is open 23 deviates Executive engine to the top wall of the loading pocket 7, which, together with the return chamber 19 forms in the solid, large boot space for notes.

Levelling the land

Banknotes that are in the loading pocket 7, individually separated from the stack by using intended for this purpose, device 8, which is known as such, and transferred to the adjoining pocket boot leveling section 9. Proposed in the invention, the device for receiving banknotes preferably used for processing banknotes in size from 100 to 185 mm in length and 60 to 95 mm in width. The banknote is preferable to move around the device for receiving sequentially individually short edge first.

In a preferred embodiment, the leveling section 9 can be performed in accordance with the application PCT/ER/15016, which in this respect is hereby incorporated into this description by reference. Thus, such a leveling section 9 provided with leveling means 25, when amodu which banknotes when the piece passes the alignment section 9 are set in a certain position and/or are driven in a particular direction.

For reliable and trouble-free alignment of banknotes leveling section 9 is made curved in the direction of the banknotes. Thus, in particular, the alignment plot shown in figure 1 the example has a C-shaped curve. Thus in this form the alignment section 9 passing through it bill, moving along a curved in the direction of its movement path, the result itself adopts a curved shape. Due to this bending banknotes increases its rigidity as compared with a flat bill. Due to this, even with high softness leaves have sufficient stability so as not to warp or not to be bent in the process of aligning their position.

As a leveling means 25 are used, for example, one or more angled to the direction of transportation of banknotes multifaceted wheels 25, which displace the banknote to the stop and thereby equalize them. In addition to these wheels can also provide multi-faceted or round wheel 25, acting on the banknotes in the direction of transport and is used to prevent the lowering speed of the banknotes. Wheels 25 are driven round by a belt 26 from the main drive. The function of this Central drive performs a Central leading role is 27, through covering his round belts 26 kinematically associated with the individual wheels 25. Itself the Central lead roller 27 can have its own drive unit, however, it is preferable to bring it into rotation from a common drive unit 12 of the main unit 2.

The measuring system

To the leveling section 9 adjacent the measuring section 24, on which the measuring system 10, which may be known designed for checking various characteristics and properties of banknotes, such as their authenticity and/or their denomination and/or their condition. The advantage associated with the placement of the leveling section 9 before the measuring site, is always to move the banknote to the measuring section, and thus it is in the same aligned position. Thanks to this feature greatly simplifies the analysis of banknotes in the measuring system 10. The measuring section 24 is preferably made as described in more detail below in the section of the conveyor system belt conveyor system. Such a transport system preferably should provide for the movement of banknotes on the measuring section 24 at a constant speed. The equalization of the rate of movement of banknotes and the consistency greatly simplify the analysis of change is sustained fashion to the system 10. Execution of the test section 24 direct additionally helps to simplify the analysis of banknotes in the measuring system.

Machining area

To the measuring section 24 of the measuring system 10 is adjacent to the processing section 11. This processing section preferably in the form described in more detail below in the section "transport system" ploskorelefnoj transport systems. The processing section 11 ends in the entrance channel 34 distribution switch module 33.

Before distribution switch module mounted element detecting banknotes, for example, not shown in the drawing, the photoelectric barrier (photocell)which is triggered for each of directly passing him notes. The length of the processing section 11 and the transport speed of the banknotes it must be such that processing the results of measurements made by the measuring system 10, lasted till the approach of banknotes to the photoelectric barrier for the functionality of the corresponding switch distribution switch module 33, which banknotes can be forwarded either to the intermediate cashier 6, or to return the pocket 19, or to the end cashier 4.

Other transport areas

To the output channel 35 raspredelitel the nogo switch module 33 of the next adjacent conveyor section 99, which leads to the return pocket 19 and which in the preferred embodiment, made in the form of ploskorelefnoj transport systems. Other output channels 36, 37 distribution switch module adjacent conveyor sections 107 and 100, respectively, which lead respectively to the intermediate cashier 6 and casseterite 3/final box office 4 and which represent the transport sections of shorter length and therefore in the preferred embodiment, is made in the form of a roller conveyor system.

Transport system

The transport system of the main unit 2 consists, therefore, of several conveyor sections, which are interconnected distribution switch module 33 and the respective drive system. In the preferred embodiment for actuation of the entire transport system, and transporters in the optional modules 3, 4, 6, it is preferable to use a Central drive unit 12, as discussed more fully below. Individual components can be provided with couplings that allow you to disconnect them from the actuator that applies primarily to the device 8 single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack. In the device single-piece separation of the banknotes from the banknote stack preferably re is emate at a slower rate than subsequent transport stations. In the conveyor system, it is preferable to use the transport mechanisms of three different types, which are discussed below.

a) Roller conveyor

The roller conveyor, for example, bezimenny conveyor, contains, for example, the paired elastic clamping rollers 28, i.e. stationary, not spring-loaded drive (leading) and carrier (reference) rollers. Such roller conveyor, thanks to its compactness is most appropriate to use in transport nodes, i.e. in the distribution analog systems and/or for transporting banknotes for short distances. Drive, i.e. connected to the drive, each pair of paired rollers 28, it is preferable to perform only one of them. Achieved advantage is the possibility to constructively handle the transportation system consisting of two halves, doing one of them hinged on the type of the hinged cover and placing it not drive control rollers paired rollers 28 that allows you to easily eliminate possible congestion banknotes or their possible jam by turning in the direction of this half of the transporting system.

b) Belt conveyor

Belt conveyor is used primarily for measuring uchastke measuring system 10. This belt conveyor can be performed, in particular, in the form of a belt conveyor with three conveyor belts. In the area of location of the measuring system 10 with one hand moves slightly narrow, parallel (toothed) belts transported with their bill. Clamping force is maintained at a constant and not time-dependent level corresponding belt tensioner. Belt conveyor, located on the measuring section 24, it is most preferable to set in motion subforeman conveyor located at the subsequent processing section 11, which allows not to provide this located on the measuring section belt conveyor separate additional drive unit. In this case, the access transport area can be obtained by simple extraction of the proposed invention the device module to the measuring system 10.

in) Plascoenergy conveyor

Plascoenergy conveyor is used, for example, the processing portion 11, adjacent to the measuring section 24 of the measuring system 10. This plascoenergy conveyor includes transporting belt 29, preferably a separate synchronizing the timing belt 29, which causes the rotation of all the touching/connected kinematically is it the rollers 30. Due to this it is possible to simplify the drive, because in this case it is possible for one to reduce the number of driving kinematic chains. In this way the transport of banknotes formed flat slot channel 31. To this end opposite the working branch conveying belt fixed rail metal plate 32, between which the conveyor belt is sandwiched in between the state of the transported banknotes. Slotted channel 31 is preferably curved. Due to such bending of the slotted channel occur clamping efforts, for example, due to the girth of stationary rollers 30 reverse side of the timing belt. In the result, it is possible to refuse the application requires otherwise, the spring-loaded rollers located opposite the stationary rollers.

To maintain a clamping force on a constant and time-independent level, it is preferable to use the tensioner transporting belt. For easy removal of the possible congestion of banknotes or their possible jams, it is preferable to provide access to the transporting belt either side of the rollers, or only from the side opposite them guide the metal plate 32 by means of its removal.

As for driving each endless transport is youseo belt is used only on one drive roller, all other rollers can be made in the form of rollers with fixed axes (in the form of rotating around a fixed axis rollers or get around the timing belt, rollers). Such a stationary axis and worn on their rollers are not exposed to alternating bending caused by the tension of the belt (as in the case of rollers for round belt) and being embedded in the chassis 14 provide an increase in its rigidity.

Distribution switch device

Distribution switch module 33 is one of the most important components of the main unit 2. This distribution switch module 33 preferably is, as shown first in figure 2, a separate node, which in the transport system connects the four input, respectively output channel 34-37. Thus the distribution switch module 33 is a Central node in the transport system, through which banknotes in any case should be when they are processed and which redirects coming from the boot of the pocket 7 of the banknote to one of all possible places of their output, i.e. to the intermediate cashier 6, return the pocket 19 and the end cashier 4. The transporting elements distribution switch module 33 because of their short length of it, preferred is entrusted to perform in the form of a roller conveyor system.

In a preferred embodiment, the distribution switch module 33 may consist of two located directly one after the other separate switch valves 38. In the following description, first, first of all with reference to figure 5 the peculiarities of one such individual switch valve 38, and then with reference to Fig.6 illustrates the structural design of the corresponding distribution switch module 33.

A separate switch allocator

On figa) - d) shows the individual switch valve 38 in four different operating conditions, thus to simplify the corresponding position is not specified at all figa) - g). The following are features of the individual switches of the distributor 38.

Arrow dispenser has three spaced Y-shaped relative to each transport channel 50-52, which is formed, for example, three guide elements, in particular the guide surfaces 53-55. The outputs of these three channels 50-52 is paired installed with the possibility of rotation of the conveyor rollers 42/43, 44/45, 46/47, enabling you to move the clamp between them the banknotes in the respective transport channel and/or from it. In the preferred embodiment, offset in the perpendicular the m rollers 42-47 direction three installed with the possibility of rotation of the roller 39-41, which allow you to apply banknotes in a separate transport channels 50-52 in the Central zone between them. Such placement of these three rollers are offset with respect to the prescribed output, respectively, the input of each of the transport channels paired rollers saves space. The individual rollers 39-47 can be placed either above or beneath the guide surfaces 53-55 or, preferably, in the cutouts provided in the guide surfaces 53-55. Thus, in particular, figure 5 as an example it is shown that three roller 39-41 act transport channels 50-52 through the slots in the guide surfaces 53-55.

In addition, a separate arrow dispenser is located inside relative to the guide elements 53-55 reed switch 49, which taking into account the Y-shaped arrangement of the guide elements preferably has a triangular (deltabase) form. To redirect banknotes in the desired direction of arrow tab 49 is made with the possibility of linear movement between two end positions in the Central zone between the Y-shaped spaced guide elements, for example, under control of the control element 48, which can be used, for example, power magnet 48. The place where the arrow tab 9 is the type of tooth combs in the gap between the guide elements 53 and 55, preferably located just before the point of contact between the respective paired rollers 42, 43, what is the main reason for placing these rollers are offset relative to the other rollers. Power magnet 48 preferably in the form of a bistable magnet that can be switched between two stable States respectively to both end positions of switch latch 49.

The use of force of the magnet allows comparison with the actuating elements of other types to obtain a particularly compact design. Compared with swivel design of the individual switches distributors, proposed in the application EP 0811208 B1 described above solution, involving the application of linear analog roaming latch, allows to significantly simplify the design of the switch allocator and speed up the switching between the end positions.

Such a separate needle valve 38 allows, therefore, to transport the banknotes in four different directions, which are shown in figure 5. On both the upper drawings, i.e. figa) and 5B), shows the plot of the bidirectional movement of banknotes on which banknotes can be moved from top to bottom, respectively, in the opposite direction, i.e. in both directions between transportiroka the governmental channels 51 and 52. To do this, switch the tab 49 is given by the Executive element 48 left in the position in which it enters into the gap between the guide elements 53 and 55.

On figv) and 5 (d) show the plots of the unidirectional movement of banknotes from the shipping channel 52 in the transport path 50, respectively, of the transport channel 51 in the transport path 50. To do this, switch the tab 49 is shifted to the actuating element 48 to the right in the position in which he indirectly forms a continuation of the guide element 54. While on the site bi-directional movement of banknotes rollers 39-41, 44-47 are driven with a variable direction of rotation, and on the plots (only) unidirectional movement of banknotes rollers 42, 43 are rotated with the same direction of rotation.

A separate switch valves 38 are different thus, for example, the presence of one portion of the bi-directional and the two sites unidirectional movement of banknotes, connecting the three outputs respectively. Obviously, the same way you can implement and arrow distributors with more than three inputs respectively outputs.

Distribution switch module

Figure 6 shows three different layout distribution switch module 33. In composition the distribution switch module 33 may include two separate switch valve 38, for example described above with reference to figure 5. A distinctive feature is shown in Fig.6 embodiments of the distribution switch module is in serial sections bidirectional movement of banknotes available in both single arrow distributors 38, and thus the ability to move the banknote in two opposite directions on connecting transport section 109 between the two individual switch valves 38, forming branching conveyor sections.

On figv) shows the distribution switch module in the layout in which it is used in main unit 2, shown in figures 1 and 2. The first (upper figv a switch valve 38 is a plot of the unidirectional movement of banknotes between exit 34 and outlet 35 through which banknotes are moved from the doghouse, respectively, of the device (VE) single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack to return pocket (RJ), and between the outlet 34 and the remaining output 60. In addition, a separate switch allocator has also plot the bidirectional movement of banknotes to the outlet 60 and from him.

The third output 60 of the first separate switch valve 38 is connected to the transport channel with the output 61 of the second separate straloch the CSO distributor 38, which in turn is connected by a plot of the bidirectional movement of banknotes with the outlet 36, the exhaust from which the transport area leads to the intermediate office (ZK). In addition, the second separate switch allocator also has lots unidirectional movement of banknotes, one of which connects the outlet 61, and the other output 36 output 37, the exhaust from which the transport area leads to the final checkout (EK). A special advantage of this special link distribution switch module is extremely compact for the placement of an optional module, which is an intermediate cashier 6, behind the main module 2, i.e. to the left of it is shown in figure 1 is the projection.

On figa) and 6b) shows two other conveyor section, connecting the separate switch valves 38 in accordance with the placement of the intermediate Fund (ZK) above (see figa)) or under (see figb)) basic module 2. This flexibility in the choice of possible placements of the individual modules is provided, as described above, thanks to the use of the distribution switch module 33 with shipping section 109 bidirectional movement of banknotes.

At the same time to enable the required transport area, for example, between zagruzochnykh/device (VE) single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack, return pocket (RJ), intermediate service (ZK) and the end office (EK), we need only to install the switch latch 49 in one of its two end positions and to specify the direction of rotation of the drive elements of the conveyor section of the bidirectional movement of banknotes.

Instead of the above layout is similar to a separate switch valve 38 and/or similar distribution switch module 33 can also be used, for example, cascading intermediate Cass, i.e. parallel installation of two intermediate offices, and/or regrading of banknotes between the intermediate desks in order, for example, when moving the banknotes of the first interim cash end cash to sort out the banknotes of the specified denomination and their directions don't end the cashier, and any other intermediate cash that serves as a module exchange notes.

In another preferred embodiment, the application of such distribution switch module the transport section of the bidirectional movement of banknotes can be connected to the rotary module or use one of the channels of the transport section of the bidirectional movement of banknotes as a rotating module. In other words, the Bank notes that it is necessary to turn to the possibility, for example, they are buried in the stack is always face up regardless of the position they are buried in the boot module, transported through the first input/output separate switch valve 38 in him and go on performing the function of the rotary module section to the second input/output, and then by changing the direction of rotation of the drive rollers to transport the plot bidirectional movement of banknotes are transported in the opposite direction and again brought outside of this second entrance/exit and through the third input/output displays the output of the switch allocator and subsequently moved to an inverted position.

In principle, the distribution switch module 33 may also consist of several spatially separated components, however, it is more preferable to perform it in a single unit that combines all shown in Fig.6 components.

To gain access to the transport channels in order to eliminate congestion banknotes distribution switch module 33 is preferably performed so that after unscrewing the fixing screws was entirely in the form of a single node is removed from the system for banknotes and/or can be opened by unscrewing the side. Thus, in particular, one or more parts of the conveyor sections, preferably those parts where you installed is not connected directly with the drive rollers can perform is detachable from the rest of the chassis distribution switch module or it is most preferable to perform the drop-down, i.e. exhaust away from the rest of the chassis distribution switch module, by turning around the mounting axis.

When using a distribution switch module shown in figv) the layout and using the drive mechanism, which is described in more detail below with reference to figure 3, for example, three rollers, which are shown in figv) option located on the upper part of the upper separate switch valve 38 guiding element 55 is fastened together with them to a common structural element distribution switch module 33, which (structural element) can be swivelled away from the rest of the distribution switch module, obtaining in this way the access transport area in this zone, the device for receiving the banknotes. The same opportunity of access to the transport section can be ensured and at the same location in the second separate switch valve 38. In such cases, free access for jam banknotes cannot be provided to the shipping section 109 between the outputs 60 and 61. Therefore, the specified transport section for easy removal with him possibly locked or jammed therein banknotes should be run as short as possible, first Corinthians is th smallest of all usually in circulation banknotes, i.e. preferably shorter than 100 mm

Thus, in particular, on the drawing, the outputs 60 and 61 just for clarity, is shown located at a great distance from each other. Preferably, however, place them on a smaller distance from each other, in which, for example, the paired rollers 95 on the outputs 60, 61 "are combined with each other, i.e. the two shown in the drawing a pair of rollers 95 are replaced by only one.

Summarizing all the above, it can be argued that the presence of only one distribution switch module 33, which provides a connection between possible ways of transporting banknotes, allows the device 1 for receiving banknotes extremely compact design and the flexibility to vary the layout and placement of its constituent components. To further increase this compactness is similar to the distribution switch module, as well as the distribution switch devices other layout contributes to the implementation of the arcuate curved conveyor sections located before and behind the measuring section, i.e. in this particular case, the alignment section 9 and the processing section 11.

The drive unit

Conveyors on a separate conveyor sections preferably are driven, as described above,the rollers and/or endless belts, first of all toothed belts. To actuate the conveyors on all shipping sections of the main unit 2 is most preferable to use only a single drive unit, which serves as the drive motor 12. The motor 12 is preferably a direct current motor having, for example, drive shaft, which, depending on the polarity of the electric motor 12 rotates clockwise or counterclockwise. The possibility of the simultaneous use of a single motor 12 to actuate the conveyors for transporting parts and unidirectional, and bidirectional movement of banknotes motor 12 is connected with the reversing mechanism 70.

The reversing mechanism

The principle of operation and basic design reversible drive mechanism 70, which is in the General form shown in figure 3, is illustrated in particular in figure 4.

The motor 12 of the endless belt 71 is connected to the input link of the mechanism, i.e. this is shown on the drawing as an example case is connected with the Central shaft 77 of the reversing mechanism 70. (Obviously, this "Central" shaft 77 may be located in another place of the reversing mechanism 70, as is additionally shown in preveden the m figure 2 schematic image of the broken line, showing above the endless belt.) By switching the polarity of the motor 12, the shaft 77 can result in rotation in two directions (clockwise and counterclockwise). The Central shaft 77 when gears kinematically linked with the other three, also mounted for rotation with shafts 72-74. The shaft 74 is used to actuate the conveyors for transporting parts bidirectional movement of banknotes. In other words, during the rotation of the Central shaft 77 to the right shaft 74 through kinematically linking them together gear is driven to the left, and during the rotation of the Central shaft 77 to the left of the shaft 74 is driven to the right.

Thus in such a reversing mechanism 70 during the rotation of the input shaft 77 in one of the changing directions of the output shaft 74 also rotates in one of the changing areas, which, however, is opposite to the direction of rotation of the input shaft. Both of the other output shaft 73, 75 of the reversing mechanism rotate in two opposite, but unchanging directions. To this end, the shaft 73 is equipped with a toothed wheel with locking in rotation to the left overrunning clutch 76 as the stopper mechanism, and the shaft 75 is provided with a toothed wheel with lockable turning right overrunning clutch 75 is as a locking mechanism. Thereby for driving conveyors for transporting parts unidirectional movement of banknotes from the same motor 12 in an unchanged direction of the shaft 73 regardless of the direction of rotation of the Central shaft 77, respectively, leading him in the rotation of the motor 12 can rotate only to the left (counterclockwise), and the shaft 72 is only to the right (clockwise).

The advantage associated with the use of, for example, the reversing mechanism 70 such constructions is the ability to combine different direction of transport of banknotes driven by a single motor without using, for example, Electromechanical switching elements and coupling sleeves. It should be noted that the above option is, obviously, only the most preferable example of the structural design of the reversing mechanism and does not preclude any of its structural design, for example, with a built-in a shaft 77 of the motor 12 and/or with a different number of slave (output) shaft or shafts, which do not need to rotate freely both right and left.

The kinematic connection with the reverse mechanism

The reversing mechanism 70, as shown in figure 3, connected with the all installed with the possibility of rotation of the drive rollers of the conveyor sections of the main unit 2 by the endless belts, for example, toothed belts.

The transport sections of the bi-directional movement of banknotes

Conveyors for transporting parts bidirectional controlled distribution switch module 33 move bills to the interim cash 6, respectively, from it are driven in one direction or the other by changing the direction of rotation of the shaft drive motor 12, which is a component of the main unit. With this purpose, the respective drive shafts are connected to rotating left/right shaft 74 of the reversing mechanism 70. In the specific embodiment shown in figure 3, this shaft kinematically connected only to the Central shaft 88 and shaft 90 of the second separate switch valve 38, which provides transportation of banknotes to the interim cash 6. All the others rotate in two directions shafts distribution switch module 33 is not required to be individually connected to the actuator, because they are passively rotated due to their kinematic connected with both shafts 88, 90. For example, the Central shaft 85 of the first separate switch valve 38 distribution switch module 33 beremennoi kinematic relationship is directly connected through a gear transmission with a Central shaft 88 of the second separate switch is on the distributor 38.

The transport sections of the unidirectional movement of banknotes

Drive shafts of the conveyors for transporting parts unidirectional movement of banknotes, namely, transport plot device 8 single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack, the alignment section 9, the measuring section 24, the processing section 11, the transporting section 99 leading to the return pocket, and conveying section 100, leading to the final checkout 4 through cassettemaster 3, the endless belt is connected to a rotating in one direction drive shafts 72, 73 and always are rotated through the reversing mechanism 70 in the same direction regardless of the direction of rotation of the shaft drive motor 12.

In this respect, regarding the distribution switch module 33 it should also be noted that from rotating in one direction by the shaft 72, 73 of the reversing mechanism 70 straps kinematically connected only rotating in one direction the shafts 86, 87, 89 and 90, while all other shafts distribution switch module 33 and in this case are rotated in the process, only passively. As mentioned above, it is this direct active bringing in rotation only part of the shaft allows constructively handle will distribute the AUX switch module 33 so so, for example, to eliminate congestion banknotes can be easily access transport areas by removing or opening type hinged cover those parts of the device for receiving the banknotes, which are not connected directly to the drive shafts.

In addition, the device 8 single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack is preferably powered via subforeman gear kinematically linking it from rotating in one direction the output shaft 72 of the reversing mechanism 70. This provides also the necessary revolution frequency is reduced, leading to the device 8 single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack kinematic chain, the advantage of which, in other words, is the increasing speed of banknotes when they are transferred from device 8 single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack in the adjacent transportation system. The device is single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack represents the only transport section with unidirectional movement of the banknote conveyor which is driven output shaft 72 of the reversing mechanism. Conveyors for all other shipping areas with unidirectional movement of banknotes are driven by other rotating in one direction the shaft 73 reversible fur the ISM.

On the other hand rotating in one direction the shaft 73 of the reversing mechanism 70 drives the conveyor to the leveling section 9.

It is important to note that several, and most preferably all of the alignment banknotes wheels 25 are connected to the respective belts 83 with only one actively driven in rotation by the roller 27, which is kinematically connected with the output shaft 73 of the reversing mechanism 70. Such a compact arrangement is preferable when the selected arcuate shape transport section 9.

Belt conveyor on the measuring section 24 passively driven subsequent ploskorelefny conveyor to the processing section 11 and therefore does not require a separate drive.

Because of the banknote as it moves to the alignment section 9 subject to slippage, due to their alignment, speed single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack device 8, the rotational speed of leveling banknotes wheels 25 and the transport speed of the banknotes on the measuring section 24 must be coordinated so that the lowest speed of movement of banknotes exceeded the speed of single-piece separation of the banknotes from the stack device 8, and the maximum speed of banknotes was lower the speed of their transportation on the measuring section 24.

Detection of congestion or jamming of banknotes

In the device for receiving banknotes described above structures or other similar structures can effectively implement the detection of congestion or jamming of banknotes into the transport system, controlling dynamically adjustable parameters used to control the process of transporting the banknotes. To this end, the corresponding analysis program detects an abrupt change of the power consumption on the basis of which you can conclude sudden congestion of banknotes on the shipping areas. The banknote jam in the conveyor section may, for example, lead to a significant change in the power required to bring the rotation of the drive rollers of the conveyor at a given speed. Required changes consumed by the system capacity, which is due to the specified connection of other components of the system are accounted for by the analysis program in the process that it performs information processing and are excluded from the analysis.

INTERMEDIATE CASHIER

Under intermediate cashier 6, also called the intermediate memory 6, usually refers to a device for temporary storage of banknotes, which preferably is used to provide to the payer the opportunity to run the th process of payment and then get back banknotes, placed in interim cash 6 in the process of conducting this payment.

Intermediate cashier 6, which is an optional module, shown primarily in Fig.7. As functional units cashier has storage film 15, which is also typically referred to as the drive of coiled film or drum storage, transport section 16, the pocket 17 wyglada returned banknotes, for brevity called pocket 17 return banknotes pocket 18 wyglada allegedly counterfeit banknotes and not shown in the drawing, the control unit, all of these functional units attached to the chassis 20. The transport section 16 contains a pointer allocator 169, which transport the plot bidirectional movement of banknotes connects the input 170 of the intermediate Fund 6, through which the banknotes fed from the main unit 2, the storage film 15 and the conveying section of the unidirectional movement of banknotes connects with pockets 17, 18 wyglada banknotes, the banknotes can also get the choice of using an additional set of intermediate switch valve 171. In turn arrow dispenser 169 may represent, for example, a single switch valve 38, which is described above with reference to figure 5.

Drive

Through the Yu (conditionally) is shown in figure 3 of the belt 91, connected with the shaft 74, the motor 12 of the main unit 2 can also be used in the preferred embodiment, to actuate the respective rotatable in two directions shaft intermediate service 6 attached to the basic module 2. This provides a mechanical connection with entering into each other elements, and the actuator is created by putting on the belt 91. With this belt 91 is driven conveyor section 16 in the intermediate cashier 6. This ensures the same transport speed banknote conveying section 16 intermediate service and the main unit 2. Pocket return banknotes

Under the pocket 17 of the return of banknotes pocket means wyglada banknotes, which are returned Bank notes, i.e. notes that in case of interruption of the process of payment the payer is not removed from the zone return banknotes. A number of these bills is not known, because it is impossible to detect the fact that the payer pulled a few bills from the return stack, respectively, replaced the banknote paper. If you do not want the contents of the final service was uncertain value, so these (remaining) returned banknotes are not transported to the final checkout 4.

Pocket 17 return b is knot and pocket 18 wyglada allegedly counterfeit banknotes preferably in the form of sliding or removable drawers. Drive film

According to a variant, described only as an example, the drive 15 film essentially consists of three coils 150-152 and two film strips 153, 154. Two 151, 152 of these coils are used as feed reel for winding them both films 153, 154 respectively in empty or emptied interim cash 6. The third coil 150 is used as the cumulative coil, which is in the process of accepting and holding wrapped around both films 153, 154 together with the stored banknotes.

Each of the two films 153, 154 leaves the consumable coils 151, 152 through respectively one separating roller 155, shown as an example on Fig, and wound on cumulative coil 150. At the same time, save the banknote is held between the two films 153, 154 and the two separating rollers 155. Therefore, the banknote for maintenance are provided in a compressed state and in such a fixed position remain until their return transportation from the cash register. Thus qualitatively better or worse banknotes are equally fixed in a certain position regardless of their status.

Film 153, 154 selected in the preferred embodiment, so that they were more narrow compared to the width of the banknote with the smallest dimensions, i.e. had a width, Rav is th, for example, 30 mm, when the width of the banknote with the smallest size is 60 mm

The motor coil

Although the rotation of the single coils 150-152 is also provided by external electric motor of the rotation mechanism by means of a belt, however, it is preferable that part and all coil 150-152 were operated and managed through its own direct-current motor. One of the most important individual ideas proposed in this invention is that the motor is not installed separately at a certain distance, and the corresponding coil. This coil compact design requires only a small installation space and in addition simplifies the accessibility and ease of maintenance device for handling banknotes. It should be noted that this idea can also be implemented not only in the one presented in this description of the devices, but also in designs with rotating shafts and most preferably also when using otherwise the installed drives the film.

According presents as an example variant of this coil 160, which, for example, may be one of the coils 150-152, shown in Fig.7, is essentially the best components, which is shown in section in figure 9. Glass 161 of the motor firmly and rigidly attached to one wall of the housing 20 intermediate service 6. A glass of 161 motor is used to position it firmly and rigidly attached to the motor 162 DC. At its front end, the motor 162 has a shaft 165, which rotates about its longitudinal axis according to the polarity of the motor 162 DC. On the shaft 165 fixed frame 163 of the coil as a rotating part that rotates with the shaft 165. Thus a glass of 161 motor is used at the same time as the sliding surface for the pressed into the armature coil 163 needle bearing 166, on which rests a coil 164. The coil 164 is a bearing part for films 153, 154 respectively and, if necessary, can be removed from the armature coil 163. When switching the polarity of the motor 162 correspondingly rotates the shaft 165 of the latter, and, consequently, the frame 163 of the coil with the coil 164.

Separating rollers

On Fig in cross section showing one of the above-mentioned separating rollers 155. The width of both narrow films 153, 154 and the corresponding size of the separating rollers 155 are synchronised in such a way that reliable separation bankn the t from the films 153, accordingly 154 for winding the film with the drive 15.

If the banknote is located between the separating rollers 155, each note lies on film 153, 154 and, for example, two soft rings 167, made for example from rubber and are, for example, at the end sections of the separating roller 155 having a longitudinal axis L. the high coefficient of friction soft rubber rings 167 bill securely directionally transferred between the films 153, 154. The diameter of the roller, to which adjoins a film, preferably slightly smaller than the diameter of the rubber ring 167. As a result, when the rotation of the separating roller 155 is created a difference in the velocities, which is when the film exits from the drive 15 most necessary for the Department, for example, significantly contaminated or sticky banknotes from films 153, 154. Otherwise, when the transportation of these bills can be a danger that they will stick to the film and will not be returned to the transport area.

Between the soft rubber rings 167 preferably fixed, for example a rubber ring 168 is preferably convex in shape in order to ensure reliable wiring films 153, 154. More preferably, this rubber ring 168 was more solid in comparison with both outer rings 167.

Along with on the private higher variants of the structural design according to the invention it is also possible numerous other options.

Cascading intermediate Cass

For example, the capacity of the intermediate service 6 can be increased by cascading two or more intermediate offices, such as, in particular, two or more tape drives 15 films. It is preferably about structurally similar intermediate offices. Banknotes are sent, for example, arrow dispenser in one of the intermediate Cass and after the filling directed arrow dispenser in the other of the intermediate offices by switching.

Skipping intermediate service

In addition, the above-described first variant according to which the main module 2 attached module 6 intermediate service, which after laying into the loading pocket 7 piece separated from the stack and checks banknotes are placed for interim storage until the moment when the staff will make a decision and submit the command to keep the accepted banknotes and, consequently, to move the banknotes from the intermediate service 6 in the end the cashier 4.

However, it is also possible, according to which users who do not wish to have the opportunity to abort the current transaction with the purpose to get back their put in the device of the banknote may send banknotes directly into the final cash bypassing the intermediate service. This VA is iant can be essential, for example, for customers who are convinced of the accuracy of the calculation of paid bills and want to save time, because they don't want every time to confirm the actual holding bills introduced, primarily if they regularly make payments.

However, it is preferable that was transported to bypass intermediate service 6 was also present in the final cash 4, in principle, not all entered or paid banknotes, but only those banknotes, authenticity and/or the nominal value of which previously were confirmed, respectively, determined using the measuring system 10, allowing these banknotes can be recorded in the credit does not necessarily also directly in the process or at the end of the relevant payment transaction. Alternatively, according to which in the described case, it is possible to completely abandon the use of module 6 of the intermediate service. However, according to alternative you can also depend on the preferences of the user control device. This means, for example, that the corresponding operator has the opportunity to choose between using or omitting the intermediate Fund in the process of conducting a payment transaction or this decision depends on at least the user's preference.

Issuance of banknotes

One idea, which in its framework proposed in this invention solutions is as follows: for example, the ticket machines don't usually take banknotes great value, because in principle the payment of money is carried out only in the form of coins. However, when using devices receiving banknotes and having intermediate cash, such as the drive of the film can be made for interim storage also banknotes of the specific denominations, which are given as a token of money. This means that the idea is to use an intermediate service for storing banknotes, which are further regardless, I would like the payer to abort the current transaction, you may re-issue in the process of conducting the transaction or the first of all subsequent transactions.

Thus, firstly, there is, for example, already pre-storing in the memory film banknotes of the specific denomination and, if necessary, again to give as a token of money in the process of transaction. If consumable storage of the films are stored, for example, banknotesand the client or the buyer enters into the device, for example, two banknoteswhen conducting a transaction, these banknotes can be placed in the drive film for interim storage and when confirmation is NII transactions can be moved to the final checkout. In that case, if the customer or buyer during the transaction should also get a small change money in an amount equal to at leastthen from the drive of the film as (part of) a bargaining money is allocated the appropriate number of bills

According to alternative or additional option when conducting a payment transaction in that case, if the first or first (first) input into the reservoir film banknotes are the banknotes of this specified value, the last when removing banknotes from the intermediate service may remain there as a possible small change money, and when the transaction ends, all other banknotes, i.e. banknotes, subsequently placed in the intermediate cash or intermediate storage during the execution of this transaction, are transported to the final checkout.

In these cases, intermediate cash or intermediate storage is not always completely emptied to the completion of the transaction, and have the option to save in the interim cash a certain number of banknotes of the specified denomination as money for a possible exchange. This solution makes the maintenance more convenient, because you can also enter banknotes great value and results first of all in the last option presented is to significantly less frequent change tapes.

At each of the intermediate cash must be pre-stored, respectively, must also be optional banknotes of a single denomination as a token of money. One drive of the film may also contain notes a large number of denominations. In this case, the control program storage film needs to know only the space on the drive of the film, which are the banknotes of the specific denominations. In this case, the control program may be configured so that it provided for the issuance of one banknote or a combination of a large number of required notes and transported to the final cash banknotes accumulated in consecutive reception for safekeeping may force simultaneously extracted from the drive of the film, but not intended for issuance as a token of money. In this case, it is most preferable you can also save alternating two banknotes of denominations.

CASSETTEMASTER

Cassettemaster 3 is the pairing or coupling of the main unit 2 with the end cashier 4, designed to protect and control the final cash 4. As the function(s) site(s) cassettemaster has a main frame 101, which is including the shipping section 21 having, for example, separate the s pairs of rollers 28, not shown in the drawing, the locking device and the drive elements 22 to end service 4 and the conveyor section 21. Preferably, the main frame 101 had also not shown in the drawing such swing frame end service 4, which is more preferable to perform such a way that depending on the purpose of the application end of the cartridge 4 can be inserted and removed both the front and rear through the appropriate door in the safe 5.

The blocking device may be equipped with latch and lock, this lock is preferable to use a key different from the key for the end of the cassette 4 in order to set different access rights to retrieve and open end of the cassette 4.

In addition, you can also provide a place mates or docking to identify the end of the cassette 4.

External control cassette

Another preferred idea proposed in the invention is that one or more, more preferably all of the elements of the drive and control related to the final checkout 4, built into cassettemaster 3. Due to the fact that the cassette 4 remain operated only from the outside (mechanical) components, significantly decrease the cost and weight of the final cassette 4 and increases its reliability. When driven designated mate ristigouche between casseterite 3 and end cashier 4 represent for example, the drive of the conveyor rollers 114 end of the cassette 4, the drive element 103 102 for preload introduced banknotes and actuator 105 pantohrafichnu plug 104, which are described in more detail below. In addition, cassettemaster 3 may also be hermetically sealed contacts for determining the position of the punch, and for determining the fill level of the cartridge banknotes.

The next preferred idea proposed in the invention is that use only a mechanical connection, for example, a connection via gears for actuating the conveyor rollers 28 end of the cassette 4 and/or magnetic connections, such as the aforementioned hermetic contacts.

This solution provides the implementation of the cassette 4, characterized by simplicity of construction and attached to casseterite 3 without the use of electrical connectors. The advantage of this solution is that there is no need for electrical contacts, which with long-term use can particularly easily be contaminated and therefore unreliable to work.

Through cassettemaster 3 end tape 4 comes allocated for storing banknotes. While the process of replacing the cartridge may include the following stages: setting the cassette 4 on napravlyayus the (bus) swing frame main frame 101 and lower until it stops, and the turning end of the cassette 4 to counter the force of the spring to the end stop. In this working position, the cartridge is rejected and blocked. As a result of rotation of the end tape 4 drive elements are connected with mechanical end nodes of the cassette 4. Thereby automatically positioned hermetic contacts for determining the position of the punch, as well as determining the fill level of the cartridge banknotes. Contacts to identify the cassette is closed.

END CASHIER

End cashier 4 may be a cassette for stacking freely falling banknotes and stileologicai the cartridge 4. Stileologicai cassette 4 has, for example, section 110 storing banknotes spring laying plate 111. Banknotes individually transferred from the conveyor rollers 28 casseterite 3 to located coaxially with them conveying rollers 28 of the cassette 4. Through the opening 115 to transfer banknotes last fall in the cassette 4. The narrow opening 115 for transmission of banknotes and then changing the direction of movement of banknotes 90° exclude the possibility of manipulation of the contents of the cassette.

Individual entered the banknotes stacked in the stack on the intermediate bottom plate 112. Under the punch, made for example in the form of pantohrafichnu punch 104 is Prohm is filling the bottom plate 112. In order to ensure reliable pushing the stack of banknotes punch it down the bottom runs of the two rotating plates that can be rotated right and left attached to the side wall. Both plates are spring-loaded and can be cut down, counteracting the spring force. The distance between them, i.e. the width of the hole to push the stack of banknotes is usually about 40 mm. Moved down banknotes 113 spring laying plate 111 is biased from the bottom to the intermediate bottom 112.

When placed in cassettemaster 3 empty end cassette 4 is pushed in the swing frame to another. In this working position, the cassette 4 is blocked by the locking device. Due to rotation is provided by the connection of the drive nodes 103, 105 for pantohrafichnu punch 104 and the clamping element 102 and the tape conveying roller 28 during rotation of the cartridge 4 in the working position. Simultaneously positioned tight contacts are designed to determine the position of the punch and the filling level of the cartridge banknotes and closed contacts, designed to identify the cartridge. To ensure the readiness of the inserted cassette to work after locking the cassette is testing it.

In other words, the first banknotes in ladywood stacked on the intermediate plate, the bottom 112. The process of laying in the stack is provided with clamping element 102. After the formation of the stack, the plunger 104 moves down and pushes banknotes paid through the hinged intermediate the bottom plate 112 of the spring-actuated laying plate 111. After full movement of the stack of banknotes by pushing on the laying plate both folding plate intermediate plate bottom 112, turning upward and firmly hold the banknote 113 when returning the punch 104 in transport storage cassette 4.

Not shown in the drawing, the cartridge door 4 is closed with a padlock. When closing the cassette 4 is released the valve to determine the status, which is included in the guiding groove of the cassette 4. This valve when installing the cassette 4 is operated rail (bus) casseterite 3 and close the guide groove after removing the cassette. Thereby it becomes impossible to install the cassette 4 without first emptying.

Chip cartridge

In the cassette 4 can be equipped with electronic storage device 116 to store transaction data, such as data about the payer of bills and/or bills paid. This storage device 116 may also be used additionally or instead of the automatic identification corresponding to set 4, inserted in cassettemaster 3 of the device 1 for receiving bills paid.

The most preferable to apply connected with only one contact and additional grounding and thus writable and/or readable chip 116, which is preferably enclosed in a metal casing, such as casing made of stainless steel, while the contact of the chip is provided by contact with the metal housing of the chip 116 with counter contact 117 casseterite 3. Unlike applications, such as smart cards such connection simplifies the recording and/or reading of data and ensures reliable contact even careless handling of cassettes 4.

Chip 116 is preferable to provide unambiguous identification data assigned to the cassette 4, for example, in the process of its production and further more does not change.

Device for banknotes with multiple tape cartridges

In order to ensure the opportunity to lay if necessary, a greater number of banknotes in the device 1 for receiving paid bills cannot arbitrarily increase the volume of the cartridge. The solution to this problem is to create additional fastening elements, which provide the ability to attach to the device 1 for receiving bills paid more the positive two tapes 4 or more cassettes. So, for example, can be placed in the frame, for example, casseterite 3 two made with the possibility of moving the shift and/or rotation of the cassette, resulting by shifting and/or rotation of the frame inlet respectively of the cassette 4 can be combined with the output 115 to transfer banknotes in casseterite 3.

According to an alternative variant is possible also to provide for multiple, primarily for all cassettes, respectively, on a single output 115 to transfer banknotes, while the banknote with the arrow distributors directionally transported in casseterite in selected individual cassettes. In addition, individual cassettes can be placed either horizontally one below the other, or vertically to each other. With particular advantage provides horizontal positioning in the presence of a single, as well as the above-described variant of the device with multiple tape cartridges, since such an arrangement is particularly compact.

Another idea proposed in the invention is that the individual cassettes are also several, especially two compartments for packing of banknotes. In this case, for example, each Department has a separate entrance aperture which mates with the outputs, respectively, in one of the passages for the transfer of banknotes to transport the banknotes to the Department.

In addition, it should also be noted that the above options are not only for processing, i.e. receiving bills paid. According to the invention it is also possible, in accordance with which the device is able to accept and process checks and/or coins.

And in conclusion, it is important to note that certain distinctive features presented in the dependent claims and/or listed in the description of the embodiments can also be applied independently from each other and from that presented in the main claim of the object of the invention is preferably in other devices for handling banknotes, primarily in other devices for receiving banknotes.
