This invention relates to a machine for sorting documents, in particular sorting of banknotes. Banknotes are placed in the feeder at the bottom of the machine and fed through the transport mechanism through a detector system that measures one or more characteristics of the banknotes, and these characteristics are used to decide which of the multiple outlet devices to manage to take notes corresponding output pockets. Any banknotes that were not allocated to one of the discharge devices, are served in the pocket of rejection.

Banknotes can be sorted by any one of a variety of characteristics, such as currency, dignity, the outer surface of the banknote, orientation, suitability of the banknote or validity, evidence-based authentication.

The invention

The aim of the invention is to overcome some of the shortcomings of the previous sorting machines of the prior art, and various aspects of the invention that achieve this goal are outlined below.

In accordance with one aspect of the present invention provides a system feeding mechanism for documents for use in the device of document sorting system feeding mechanism for documents contains the upper and lower parts, each of which has according to the respective elements of the feeding mechanism for feeding documents from the drive, thus the upper and lower parts are movable relative to each other between a feeding position in which the elements of the feeding mechanism of the upper and lower parts are occupied by the documents that must be filed, and the position of the jam in which the document between the elements of the feeding mechanism of the upper and lower parts can be returned, where the upper and lower parts are provided in the feeding position by a spring with constant force.

The previous system of the prior art typically hold the upper and lower parts of the system feeding mechanism together by means of a shutter. Two parts are usually spring-loaded separately from each other so that they are separated when the shutter opens. Therefore, bringing the upper and lower parts in the feeding position by a spring with constant force, it is possible to do without shutter. A spring with a constant force ensures that the force required to hold the two parts separately, does not increase when they are separated, as will be the case if you are using a cylindrical spring.

The elements of the feeding mechanism of the upper and lower parts may be so arranged that, when the upper and lower parts are in feeding position, each element of the feeding mechanism upper part is contiguous with the corresponding element of the feeding mechanism at the bottom.

The type is a rule, system feeding mechanism further comprises a means for adjusting the separation between the elements of the feeding mechanism when the upper and lower parts are in the position of submission. Such means may include hand wheel controller, for example.

A number of vent holes 3a is provided near the bottom of the housing to permit the passage of air in the sorter 1 banknotes DL is in to protect it from overheating. A number of vent holes 3a works together with a series of vent holes 3b, 3c and 3d, which can be seen in figure 2 to 4, provided in the rear on the left side and the right side of the finisher 1 banknotes respectively.

Banknotes are formed on the bottom of the drive, which is part of system 4 of the feeding mechanism, which will be described in detail later, and served in the transport mechanism of the system 4 feeding mechanism. Each banknote is fed past the detector system, which will be described in detail later, and the discharge device is operated so as to withdraw banknotes from the transport mechanism in a corresponding output pocket 5a, 5b and 5c. Any bill that has not been allocated from the transport mechanism, is folded into the pocket 6 of rejection. Each of the output pockets 5a-c is covered with the dust cover 7a-c (which can be seen in figure 3 and 4), respectively. They reject dust particles from banknotes and protect them from relegation in the face of the operator.

Each of the output pockets 5a-c is associative display 8a-c counter. He may be an led or LCD display and specifies the number, value or currency notes, which were allotted to each of the output pockets 5a-c. The display 8a-c can function as th is would erupt, if associative pocket 5a-c requires attention, for example because it is full. Pocket 6 rejection is associative indicator 9 pocket rejection, which may be an incandescent lamp or led and indicates the presence of banknotes in the pocket of rejection.

The control commands are typically issued to the sorter 1 banknotes through the keyboard 10, and the information relating to the operation of the sorter 1 banknote is presented to the user via the display 11. The keyboard 10 and the display 11 will be described in detail later.

Electricity consumed from the network is supplied to the sorter 1 banknotes through the connector 13 power, which is usually the connector of the electrical network IEC-type. Electricity supplied to the sorter 1 banknotes, can be switched on or off by the switch 12 power supply. Connector 13 power can be seen in detail in figure 2, which also shows two 9-pin connectors 14a, b of the input/output D-type. They are used to provide RS-232 connection to PC or printer. Can be used with other types of interface, such as Ethernet or universal serial bus (USB). For this purpose there may be an internal or external Converter.

5, 6, 7 and 8 show the machine 1 for sorting banknotes with a remote housing 2 at the front, back, left side and the right side respectively. The sorter 1 banknotes installed between the plate 15a on the right side plate 15b on the left side. Two side plates 15a, 15b are made of a suitable metal, such as steel, aluminum or aluminum alloy, machining or stamping. Subchassis 16 at the base of the sorter 1 notes and the upper holder 17 is provided in order to fasten the two side plates 15a, 15b. Subchassis 16 is stretched just below the sorter 1 banknotes and partly in front of and behind the finisher 1 banknotes. It is provided with ventilation slots 18a, 18b in the front and rear parts, respectively.

Additional number of vent holes 18c provided in the plate 15b on the left side to allow air to pass in block 19 of the power supply (shown in figures 9 and 10).

The fan 10 is mounted on the holder 21, is attached to the plate 15b on the left side, and acts to accelerate the flow of air over the circuit boards, which are also mounted on the plate 15b on the left side.

This power supply accepts power consumed in the network, from the connector 13 power and provides the DC output, which is used to power electronic is a device in the finisher 1 banknotes.

Jam

The sorter 1 banknotes is provided with three signs in order to facilitate the removal of banknotes, which have become jammed in the transport mechanism. Perspective view of the sorter 1 banknotes in his usual, working configuration shown in Fig.9. Here it is shown that the sorter 1 banknote provided with a rear cover 22 access.

Figure 10 shows the rear cover 22 access in its open position. In order to open the rear cover 22 access, opens the shutter 23, which normally holds it closed. The rear cover 22 access then free to rotate around pivot points 24a, 24b provided on the panels 15a, 15b on the right and left sides, respectively. Limiting strip 25 limits the degree of rotation of the rear cover 22 access around pivot points 24a, 24b, and thus limits the degree of its opening.

In one embodiment, the housing 2 is provided with a hinged hinges on the access cover (not shown)attached to the rear cover 22 access. The shutter 23 is open to allow as hung on hinges the access cover, the rear cover 22 access to turn together.

When the rear cover 22 of the access is in the open position, the rear portion of the transport mechanism is available, thus allowing any captured the notes in this part when chirovsky 1 banknotes to be removed.

The second sign is illustrated in figure 11. In the drawing the output pocket 5a shows the position of the jam. Every weekend pockets 5a, 5b, 5c can be advanced from its normal position adjacent to the transport tape through the guide system. Each pocket 5a, 5b, 5c is provided with a lower guide pin 26 and the upper guide pin 27 on each side of the pocket. The guide pins 26, 27 hold the pocket in the bearing brackets 28 mounted on each of right - and left-hand plates 15a and 15b.

Each lower guide pin 26 secured in the lower guide track 29 in the corresponding bearing bracket 28 and can move along the length of the track 29 so that the pocket 5a, 5b, 5c can slide between a normal position and the position of the jam. Track 29 limits the extent of movement of the guide pin 26.

Each upper guide pin 27 moves in the upper guide track 30 to the respective support bracket 28. However, the guide track 30 is open at its front edge, so that when pulling into a position clearing the upper guide pin 27 can extend from the top of the guide track 30, allowing afford to lean forward, as shown for the pocket 5a figure 11. As can be seen, this allows access to the field of transportation is bound mechanism for pocket 5a.

In a variant of this, the guide pin 26 is not fixed in the track 29, and may leave it open edge. Similarly, the guide pin 27 can also be removed completely from the guide track 30. Thus, the pockets can be removed completely when this option is used.

Electrical connection with the pocket can be done in one of two ways. In the first method, the respective connectors (not shown) are mounted in the pockets 5a, 5b, 5c and on the sorter 1 banknotes, so that the connectors are locked when the pocket is in its normal position, and open when the pocket is pulled forward in its position clear the jam. Connectors are installed so that they are centered relative to each other when the pocket 5a, 5b, 5c is pushed into its normal position.

The second method braided wiring (not shown) from the pocket 5a, 5b, 5c passes through the Central hole in the guide pin 26. In this configuration, the guide pin 26 protects the braided wiring from abrasion or other damage when the pocket 5a, 5b, 5c moves between a normal position and the position of the jam. Braided wiring on the outside of the pocket 5a, 5b, 5c provided by the loop so that the cable is not placed under tension when the pocket 5a, 5b, 5c is set to clear the jam.

In another embodiment, the pockets a, 5b, 5c have one guide pin 31 on each side. The guide pins fixed in the tracks 32. This is shown in Fig. Valves (not shown) on the pockets 5a, 5b, 5c are used to pull the pockets 5a, 5b, 5c forward.

The third feature allows the jams in the area of system 4 of the feeding mechanism, which is described below. Jam recovery is shown in detail on Fig, which shows the feeding pocket 100 and other parts of the system 4 feeding mechanism.

As can be seen from Fig submitting pocket 100 includes a substrate 101 and the rear panel 102. Rear panel 102 and other elements of the system 4 of the feeding mechanism are placed above the substrate 101 and is able to rotate around the axis 120, so that they can be separated from the substrate 101 and all elements of the system 4 feeding mechanism below the substrate 101. This rotation of the rear panel 102 reveals the gap between system elements 4 of the feeding mechanism above and below the substrate 101, thus allowing the return of banknotes, which have become jammed in this area.

In one embodiment, the back panel 102 is held in its normal, operating position by a pair of gates, one on each side. However, in the preferred embodiment, the spring 121 constant force pushes the rear panel 102 and other elements of the system 4 feeding mechanism above the substrate 101 in the direction of odlozte 101. The spring 121 constant force attached to the connecting element 122, which is attached, in turn, to the side surface 123, which includes a rear panel 102 and other elements of the system 4 feeding mechanism above the substrate 101. Jam can, thus, be eliminated by a simple lifting of the rear panel 102 from the substrate 101 and return the jammed banknote.

The use of rather spring constant strength than tensile springs or torsion springs, is useful, because the resistance to movement of the back panel 102 constantly. This should be compared with spring tension or torsion, which will have the least resistance when the back cover 102 is in its operating position. This can sometimes lead to the filing of several banknotes. In addition, the resistance increases when the rear panel 102 moves away from the substrate 101. This can be a disturbing factor for the user attempting to clear the jam.

Fig and 45 show partial cross-sections of part of the system feeding mechanism and the transport mechanism. In particular, they show the substrate 101 and the rear panel 102. The emitter 128 of visible light mounted on the rear panel 102, and the corresponding receiver is installed on the substrate 101. They are used to detect the passage of documents between them, during which the em emitted by the emitter 128, will be hidden and therefore not detected by the receiver 127.

The emitter 128 and receiver 127 subjected to the same calibration process, which is described later with respect to other sensors provided in the system transport mechanism. However, as an extension of this process, the emitter 128 causes to increase the intensity of the light it emits, in inverse proportion to the amount received by a receiver 127. Thus, when in the feeding position (as shown in Fig), a large part of the light emitted by the emitter 128, falls on the receiver 127. However, when they are separated, as described above, the light emitted by the emitter 128, no longer falls on the receiver 128 and the amount of light emitted by the emitter 128 up until it emits light with a maximum intensity of what he is capable of. This light is used to illuminate the area of the route of the document between the substrate 101 and the back panel 102, to assist users in removing the jammed banknote. The light in the usual version has a yellow color.

System feeder

Banknotes are introduced into the sorter 1 banknotes through the system 4 of the feeding mechanism, which is best shown in Fig, 17 and 18.

Banknotes, which must be sorted, arranged as a stack in the drive 100, particularly the m substrate 101 and the rear panel 102. For example, the bundle of banknotes 103 shown on the substrate 101 of the drive 100 on Fig.

A pair of centering guides 104 can be moved along the path defined by the openings 105 as long as they will not be separated by the width of the banknotes to be sorted. Centering guides 104 are their lower ends into the recesses 106 in the substrate 101 in order to protect banknotes in the storage device 100 from slipping under them.

Each centering guide 104 is connected with the corresponding rack-and-pinion mechanism (not shown)located behind the rear panel 102. Rack and pinion mechanisms are stretched to each other in the direction of the width of the back panel 102, and each engages with the gear (not shown)so that movement of one guide centralization makes another move by the corresponding amount. Therefore, adjustment of the centering guide 104 so that they are separated by the width of the banknotes to be sorted, ensures that the banknotes are centered in the drive 100.

On the rear panel 102 can be provided with a label to indicate what position the guides 104 must be moved in order to ensure the correct distance for individual cuts. As the movement of one of the guide 104 causes corresponding movement of the other, RA is ing labels can be provided, adjacent to each rail 104. For example, the left edge guide 104 may have the label £5 and £20 provided on the rear panel 102, while the right guide 104 has a label £10 and £50.

The presence or absence of notes in the drive 100 is detected by means of visible or infrared radiation emitted by the emitter (not shown)which passes through a hole 107 in the substrate 101. If the banknote is present, part of the emitted radiation is reflected by the bill back through the opening 107 and is detected by an appropriate sensor (not shown). If the banknote is not present, the radiation is not reflected. Detection of the banknote can be used to automatically activate the system 4 of the feeding mechanism and to sort banknotes.

Banknotes are fed into the sorter 1 banknotes from the bottom of the stack breathtaking wheels 108. These exciting wheels 108 are ribbed parts that extend outward radial for the radius of the circle is exciting wheel 108 through the profile of the substrate 101. When the exciting wheel 108 rotates, ribbed part periodically protruding through holes in the substrate 101. The lowest note is captured ribbed parts and displayed in the sorter 1 banknotes. Spectacular wheel 108 are driven by a motor 109 DC, the cat is who works in the excitation current, straight polarity, to make the axis 110, which includes a spectacular wheel 108 to rotate. Slotted disk 111 is mounted on one end of the axis and is placed so that the slit passes through the optical detector 112, mounted on the left-side plate 15b of the sorter 1 banknotes, only after the exciting wheel 108 has moved at the recesses in the substrate 101. Therefore, the rotating position of the exciting wheel 108 can be observed through this.

When the last of the bundle of bills that must be submitted, selected spectacular wheel 108 will be detected by the absence of notes, as already described. The engine controller (described later) will then cause the engine to stop (this may also happen as the result of decisions to discontinue filing for some reason), applying the excitation current of reverse polarity of the motor 109, when the detector 112 again detects the passage of the slit 111. The excitation current of reverse polarity is applied for a predetermined time, and this causes the motor 109 to slow down. This predetermined period of time is long enough to effectively slow down the engine without forcing it to rotate in the opposite direction. The braking period long enough for the last of the banknote, to clean up the system 4 podushek the mechanism before as the engine 109 is stopped. Typically, the excitation current is then removed from the engine, but it is also possible to apply a reverse excitation current of lesser magnitude to lock the engine so that definitely prevent it from rotation, even through the application of external forces. Reverse excitation current of lesser magnitude is insufficient to cause the motor to turn.

Position stop system 4 feeding mechanism can be chosen so that the wheel 113 feeding mechanism rotates almost a turnover before gears of the first bill of the new packs, which must be filed. This allows him to fully accelerate. The position of the wheel 113 can be determined from the detector 112 and the slit 111.

Banknotes filed breathtaking wheels 108, subsequently served wheel 113 of the feeding mechanism in the system transport mechanism. The wheel 113 feeding mechanism mounted on the axis 114, which is driven through drive belt 119 from the axis 110 of the gripping wheel. The wheel 113 feeding mechanism has a high friction, ribbed, rubber insert, provided along the arcuate portion of the circumference of the wheel 113, which captures every note and posts it in the system transport mechanism.

A pair of inversely rotating the separation roller 115 dei is only in interaction with the wheel 113 of the feeding mechanism, to prevent the capture of more than one banknote fed into the system transport mechanism in time.

The separation roller 115 is installed on the axis 116, which is supported in the side plates 15a, 15b. The axle 116 is driven in the reverse rotation direction to the axis 114 on which the wheel set 113 feeding mechanism. Therefore, if two notes are served to the wheel 113 of the feeding mechanism, back rotating the separation roller 115 will push the upper bill back to the lower notes and thus prevent it from entering into the system transport mechanism. The tabs on the separation roller 115 correspond to the grooves on the wheel 113 of the feeding mechanism, and Vice versa. It makes banknotes lodged between them, to take a wavy profile, and it was created to improve the performance of your submission.

The axle 116 is driven fork element (not shown), which is periodically pushed eccentrically mounted roller (not shown)attached to the axis 110 of the wheel feeding mechanism. Fork element is connected with the axis 116 through the one-way clutch (not shown). Due to this, connecting to the placement of the separation roller 115 rotates slowly, and the rollers 115 are worn evenly.

The gap between RA the separating rollers 115 and wheel 113 feeding mechanism is set using the wheels 118 adjust manually (see 5). The rotation of the wheel 118 adjust manually causes the rotating eccentric Cam (not shown), which, in turn, adjusts the spacing between the separation roller 115 and the wheel 113 feeding mechanism.

The transport roller 117 is mounted for rotation on an axis 116 between the two separating rollers 115 and rests on the Central part of the wheel 113 of the feeding mechanism. The second transport roller (not shown) also holds on the wheel 113 of the feeding mechanism, but in position to the rear of the separator rollers 115. There's a spring laid against the wheel 113 of the feeding mechanism. Transport rollers interact with the wheel 113 of the feeding mechanism and the separating rollers 115 to prevent the feeding of more than one banknote at a time and to prevent the combination of notes.

It was found that the supply of soft banknotes can be problematic, as their front edges tend to follow the wheel 113 feeding mechanism rather than they will be drawn into the transport mechanism. The means of overcoming this is shown in Fig. Here it is shown that the tape 124 is captured around the Central recess of the wheel 113 of the feeding mechanism and the corresponding roller 125 mounted on the axis 126. The tape 124 is located to be barely below the surface of the wheel 113 feed me is anima points, where they touch. However, as can be seen, the tape 124 will protect banknotes from the following wheel 113 of the feeding mechanism, when it rotates. Instead, they will be filed in the transport mechanism.

System transport mechanism

System transport mechanism is best shown in Fig, 13 and 18.

The transport mechanism is driven by the engine 200 DC output shaft which is connected via the first gear-remental transmission with toothed drive pulley 202. Second gear-ramanatha transmission 203 is connected with the drive pulley 202 and also extends around an idler pulley 204, the second driving pulley 205 and the third driving pulley 206.

The tension pulley 204 is mounted on the stub axle, which is attached to a mounting plate (not shown). Mounting plate is fastened to a side plate 15b screw passing through the hole in the mounting plate. This allows mounting of the panel to move relative to the side plate 15b and the tension in the transfer belt 203 may be regulated.

The hand wheel 207 is connected with the output shaft of the engine 200 DC. This is a manual wheel 207 may be used to control the transport mechanism manually, which can be useful in order to move the banknote in a position where they are available, while eliminating the amate.

The number of holes 208 is provided around the circumference of the toothed driving pulley 202, and they pass through the optical detector 209, when the pulley 202 is rotated. The optical detector 209 detects the passage of each of the holes 208, and corresponding pulses are output by the optical detector 209. These pulses can be used to provide the synchronization signal, which, in turn, can be used to determine the position of the banknote as it passes through the system transport mechanism. The position of the banknote between the synchronized pulses can be interpolated to provide high resolution.

A toothed drive pulley 202 is mounted on one end of the driving shaft 210, which is supported in bearings in each of the left and right plates 15a, 15b. A pair of pulleys 211 transport belts are installed on the master pulley 210. Two pulley 211 are placed separately, and each is used to move the respective transport belt 212 (see Fig). Banknotes that are served by the system 4 of the feeding mechanism, adjusted by a pair of rubber rollers 224 mounted on an axis 225 driven by the third drive pulley 206. They then captured between the transport belts 212 and a pair of pressure rollers 213, which interact to with the us banknotes into the system transport mechanism.

The route of the transport belts 212 shown in a transverse section on Fig. As can be seen, each of the transfer belt 212 generates an infinite loop between the pulleys 211 of the transport belt and the upper belt pulley 214. Banknotes lodged in the transport mechanism of the system 4 of the feeding mechanism, are moved by the belts 212 past the detector system 300 and may then be withdrawn from the transport mechanism to any one of the three discharge devices in a corresponding output pocket 5a, 5b or 5c. Any banknotes that have not been allotted, are automatically placed in the pocket 6 of rejection.

In an alternative embodiment, shown in Fig and 47, the belt 212 does not extend around the pulleys 211 and instead extend around and are driven by pulleys 230, mounted on the axis 229, which is the third drive pulley 206. In this embodiment, the tape 212 do a loop around the pulleys 230 in the clockwise direction and then around roller 231 in the counterclockwise direction. Tape 212 is then returned to the route shown in Fig, making a loop around the roller 228 adjacent to the lower set of rollers 228. Pulleys 211 simply promote a bill through one or more guide plates (not shown) to the lower set of rollers 228, which describes neither the e, and are driven transport belts 212. The lower set of rollers 228 pushes the banknote detector system 300 and the transport belts 212.

Fig through 39 show the improvement in the transport mechanism, which can be used with this alternative embodiment. This enhancement improves the management of banknotes between the system 4 of the feeding mechanism and the detector system 300.

This improvement pulleys 211 are replaced by three pulleys 232. Three tapes 233 captured around the respective pulleys rollers 232 and 234, placed on the axis 235.

Three additional tape 236 captured around three pressure rollers 237 (which replace the pinch rollers 213), rollers 238 mounted on the axis 239 and rollers 240 installed on the axis 241.

As can be seen, the matching of ribbons 233 and 236 followed by neighboring routes for part of their lengths and send banknotes between 4 feeding mechanism and the detector system 300.

The outer rollers 242 are provided at each end of the axis 235 and 239, to improve the management of land bills when they are served in a detector system. Typically, a gap of 0.5 mm is provided between the rollers 242, in order to guarantee the good direction of the banknote in the detector system, which normally has a period of 1 mm. Rollers 242 in typical is the version of steel. However, they can be made of flexible material such as a polymer or rubber. The rollers 242 may then be placed to form a compression policies with the purpose of banknotes in the detector system.

Axis 235 and 239 supporting tape 233 and 236 may be spring mounted (not shown) so as to hold the tape in their normal positions (not shown) during operation while allowing the user to move the tape device, thereby gaining access to the transport route to clear the jam. However, the tape position 233 and 236 has an improved mechanism for transporting banknotes to the site, where jams are rare. Therefore, as a cheap alternative, the mount can be locked and jammed banknotes removed by winding conveyor belts using arm 207 to move the jammed banknote to the point from which it can be taken. The detection system 300 is provided with eight axes 227, 227a, on which are mounted rollers 228. Axis 227 are all connected through O-rings 226, such that they all rotate together. Axis 227a simply supported in bearings so that they can freely rotate. The bottom two axes 227 are connected by two O-shaped rings 226 due to the additional torque that can be transmitted m is waiting for these two axes. The use of O-rings in order to result in the movement of these rollers is sufficient, as the rollers just send banknotes, which are driven by belts 212. Thus, the rollers can slide relative to the banknote without serious consequences.

These rollers 228 together with the rollers 215 guarantee that the bill maintains good contact with the sensors in the detector system. Axis 227 are driven transport belts 212, and through the action of the O-rings 226 connecting axis 227 bill is driven at a constant speed through a detector system 300, even if it slides relative to the tape 212.

Pinch rollers 215 are provided adjacent to each transport belt 212 along its route between the pulleys 211 conveyor belts and pocket 6 of rejection. Each pressure roller is placed at a distance from the adjacent pressure rollers 215, which is smaller than the smallest width of the banknote, which the sorter 1 banknotes need to be managed. Essentially, the bill always comes in contact at least between one pair of pressure rollers and a pair of transport belts 212.

Between each pair of pressure rollers 215 close to the detector system 300 also includes a Central roller 216. Each of these pairs of clamping rollers close to the detector with the system 300 and the corresponding Central roller 216 is installed on the appropriate axis (see Fig), which is supported at each end in the side of the rear cover 22 access.

Six pairs of clamping rollers 215 below the detector system 300, are supported in the so-called H-springs 218 (as shown in Fig). H-spring 218 is made of spring steel and are pushing the pinch rollers 215 to the transport belts 212 through holes 217 in the rear cover 22 access. Each of the pressure rollers 215 are shown mounted on a respective axis 219, which is securely captured H-spring 218. Each H-spring 218 is mounted on the back cover of the access through the separation unit 220 to provide the correct amount of the Central axis of the pressure roller 215 from the transport belts 212.

Other accommodation is when one axle is suspended on one of the Central H-spring 218, and the axis has pinch rollers 215 mounted on its respective left and right ends.

In yet another embodiment, the H-springs 218 are replaced by coil springs which act on the axis 219 to push the rollers 215 in the direction of the transport belts 212.

The upper pinch rollers 215 provided on the access cover, mounted on the access cover by spring terminals 221. Spring terminals 221 are made of spring steel.

Another variant of implementation shown in Fig. It shows the viola is native mechanism direction of banknotes around the top of the machine. In this mechanism, the banknotes are fed into the compression between the tape rollers 243 and 244 mounted on the axis 245. Tape captured around the rollers 246 mounted on the axis 247. This mechanism provides precise direction of the banknote around the top of the machine.

Each output pocket 5a, 5b and 5c has three pairs of pressure rollers 215 provided on their rear surfaces, so that they engage the transport belt 212, when the output pockets 5a, 5b and 5c are in their operating positions.

The transport mechanism is provided with a pair of sensors, which are used to detect the passage of the banknotes by the corresponding points on the transport mechanism. The first of these is known as postcategory sensor 222. This optical sensor, which contains the emitter of visible or infrared light and a corresponding detector. The sensor can operate in transmissive and reflective principle. In a transmissive system, the detector and emitter are spaced so that the banknote is held by the transport mechanism, will interrupt the beam of radiation emitted by the emitter and detected by the detector. In the reflective system passing bill reflects the radiation emitted by the emitter so that it is detected by the detector. In both cases, the emitter and detector may be provided with glass or plastic the new Windows which completely wiped dust from passing bills. The amount of money submitted to the emitter, can be periodically and automatically set when the document is not present, to ensure reliable operation.

This technology can be used to compensate for the presence of dust, which was not removed in the Windows of passing notes, or to adjust the emitter whose output light decreases with the period of service, or when the sensitivity of the detector changes over the lifespan.

The second sensor is known as sensor 223 preliminary way, and it works exactly on the same principle as postcategory sensor 222.

These sensors allow you to set the position of the banknote in two discrete points in the transport mechanism. The position of the banknote can then be extrapolated from these two fixed positions with a number of holes 208 and the optical detector 209, as mentioned earlier.

Other sensors of similar principle can be provided after each of the discharge device (not shown)to detect whether the banknote is successfully allocated from the transport mechanism in the output pocket. Such sensors can also be used to confirm that the bill, which was not supposed to be abstracted once the et in this position, when predicted.

In fact, sensors are provided after each of the discharge device can also be used to confirm that the bill, which was to be given, was successfully allocated. For example, if the banknote is not detected by the sensor, associative associated with a specific discharge device, after it has passed the predetermined time, it may be expected that the bill was successfully allocated. This predetermined time may begin when the banknote is held above the sensor (e.g. sensor associative located above the discharge device or sensor pre-allocation). This time can be adjusted in accordance with the speed of the transport mechanism at a higher speed transport mechanism, respectively, is reduced a predetermined time. If the sensor is associative discharge mechanism detects the presence of the document that must be given, the transport mechanism may stop so that the user can intervene.

The position of the banknote transport mechanism can be predicted using a number of holes 208 and the optical detector 209. If postcategory sensor 222 and sensor 223 advanced features is not confirm the presence of the banknote within the correct time (with pre-defined tolerance), then the user can be specified on the jam, and the transport mechanism can be stopped.

The predicted position of the banknote or document may take into account the degree of bias that this type of the banknote or document experiences relative to the transport mechanism. A predefined tolerance may likewise be modified for different types of document.

The amount by which the note is shifted between the two sensors 222 and 223 may be used to predict the amount of displacement in some other place in the transport mechanism, if this is not enough to indicate a paper jam.

In addition, can be used as an offset value to provide a measurement of how crumpled the note, and it can be used to categorize or sort the bill.

In another embodiment, provided more than one sensor in postdetection position and the position before removal. These sensors are placed on the sides through the sorter 1 banknotes. False detection or failure detection can then be avoided watching all the sensors. The presence of skewed banknotes can also be detected, as the banknote is detected by one sensor, before detected neighboring sensor. It also helps to Zap the NEC discharge devices in advance when bill perekalivatsja, as bill will usually still be found one of the external sensors of the transport system before it is detected by the Central sensor.

Guides used in parts of the transport mechanism, made of plastic, as it inherently reduces the noise due to its masking capabilities.

The detection system and the detector duplicates

The detection system 300 contains a number of different detectors. They may include detectors of infrared, visible, ultraviolet light and magnetic detectors. Printed circuit Board signal processing receives signals from individual detectors and can be used to obtain a set of characteristics for each banknote, which passes through the detector system 300. These characteristics may include currency and the denomination of the banknote, authenticity, its orientation, and the outer coating and the wear of the banknote. In addition, the detection system may be provided with an interface (for example, a CAN bus interface) with detectors of a third party.

Fig shows three detector 301a, 301b and 301c. They are installed in the respective metal cases, each of which has a corresponding flange 302a, 302b and 302c extending from it, which acts as a guide DL the banknotes, passing through the detector system 300. The advantage of integrating flange 302a, 302b and 302c housings detectors 301a, 301b and 301c in that the flanges and the detectors can simultaneously be adjusted relative to the transport belts 212.

In one embodiment, the detector 301a is a contact image sensor. This type of sensor detects infrared radiation transmitted through the banknote infrared source (not shown), and the visible light radiated from the sensor and reflected by the bill. From the reflected visible light can be detected characteristics of the image of the banknote (i.e. the image on the bill) and the degree of contamination. In addition, the second contact sensor 301d image (shown in Fig 39) may be provided on the opposite side of the transport mechanism with respect to the detector 301a. This is very useful when the image of the banknote cannot be used to determine its dignity, while also not will be determined by which side of the banknote is the front in the transport mechanism (i.e. which side is outside and what is inside). Such is the case, for example, with the Indian currency, but the opposite contact image sensors allows the determination of the denomination of the banknote and the orientation of the front surface.

In addition, the detectors 301a through 31e may contain detection system sample magnetic filaments, such as a system of magnetic detection of the highest quality (SMDS). Typically, this will be the detector 301b. Such a system is described in published European patent applications EP 1221679 A, EP 1353302 A and EP 1353301 A, which is incorporated herein by reference. In addition, they may contain a sensor that responds to detect so-called Compositae banknotes. There are banknotes, which are made through the operation of forgery, bringing together a very fine fibers from other genuine banknotes to create a fake bill.

In addition to or instead of the detectors 301a on 301e may contain one or more of the following detectors: detector reflected ultraviolet properties of paper; contact image sensor of visible light and a contact image sensor transmitted infrared light (for example, the detector 301a may be an infrared emitter and detector 301d may be an infrared receiver).

The sorter 1 banknote detector equipped density, also known as the duplicate detector, which is used to detect the passage of the two bills at a time through the transport mechanism, which may occur if the previously described function of the separator is not valid. The duplicate detector shown in detail on Fig and 24.

Pulleys 211 conveyor belts and pinch rollers 213 is predelay device definition worksheet for detecting the passage of two or more bills at a time and for counting banknotes. An alternative may be a single traditional means of counting. Pulleys 211 conveyor belts and pinch rollers 213 are arranged separately at a distance less than the width of the count sheets.

Rod 303 is hollow, is supported without the possibility of rotation of the side plates 15a, 15b and carries two sets 213 pressure rollers. They are identical in construction and each is in contact with a corresponding one of the pulleys 211 of the transport belts.

Each set of rollers 213 contains a roller bearing having an annular outer track 304 rolling, ring-shaped inner track 305 rolling and inserts 306 bearing located between the inner and outer raceways. The bearing is mounted coaxially around the axis 303 on the annular rubber portion 307. A metal pin 308 is adjacent to the radial inner surface of the inner tracks 305 rolling and extends through the rubber part of the hole 307 and 309 in the rod 303 of the terminal.

Plastic-coated housing 310 is installed in the rod 303 and has a Central tubular portion 311, combined with the extreme parts 311a, each of which has a hole 312 that connects with the tube part 311. A pair of light emitting diodes 313 mounted on the inner ends of the holes 312, while a pair of photosensitive 314 installation is Lena on the other ends of the holes 312. For clarity, illustrated only part of connecting wires from the light-emitting diodes 313 and photosensitive 314. In fact, these wires will pass through and out of the rod 303 to check the circuit installed in the circuit Board of the detector system, and is described below. To facilitate construction, all wires extend from the same end of the rod 303. Each part 311a of the housing 310 also has a hole 315a, connecting with the holes 312 and aligned with a hole 309. The pins 308 extend through holes 315 in the holes 312.

The scheme, shown in detail in Fig illustrates two light emitting diodes 313 and phototransistor 314, each of which is connected to the source 316 power. Part of it is shown the circuit surrounded by a dotted line, is this part that is installed in a plastic housing 310. The output of each phototransistor 314 is fed through the respective detectors 317 current back to the source 316 power. The output from detector 317 is supplied to the microcomputer 318. The microcomputer 318 causes the signals from the detectors 317 to be distributed to the selected one of the corresponding pairs memory 310 and a comparator 320. Conclusions from the comparator 320 is connected to the microcomputer 318.

Initially, pulleys 211 conveyor belts rotate and without the presence of the banknote between the pulleys 211 and 213 sets the pressure rollers, any deformation is the situation of each set of rollers 213, accompanied by compression of the respective rubber parts 307 adjacent to the pulleys 211, will be detected by the method, which is described below, within forty-equidistant intervals during a complete rotation of the sets of rollers 213. The compression of each rubber part 207 in a radially inner direction will be accompanied by a radially internal displacement of each pin 308. Each led 313 continuously emits light that falls on the corresponding photosensitive 314, causing them usually partially included. If the pin 308 is moved radially inward, the pin 308 will be more and more to block the path of light rays from the LEDs 313 to the photosensitive 314, thus increasing the time for which the photosensitive 314 off. The output signal (I) from the photosensitive 314 is supplied to the detectors 317 current, which provide an output signal in the form of the corresponding collector current. Under the control of the microcomputer 318 these output signals is discretized as forty of equidistant positions around the pulleys 211 (which will be determined by observation of the passage holes 208 via the optical detector 209). Selected current values are then sorted in the respective memory modules 319 as the profile of the guide surface. A typical output signal detected by the sensors 317 current, illustrated by Lee what s 321 on Fig. Forty discrete positions occur between the beginning of the graph on Fig and part indicated by the symbol A, and the profile of the guide surface contains this part of the line 321 until the positions A and includes marked by the dotted line portion 322. Fig illustrates the output signal of the sensors 317 current by the number of complete rotations of the sets of rollers 213, and may be seen that the guide profile with a line 321 and is marked by the dotted line portion 322, usually the same in every part of 0A, AB, BC and CD.

Each led 313 continuously emits light that falls on the corresponding photosensitive 314, forcing each phototransistor 314 to pass collector current at the primary level. Each pin 308 is usually partially blocking the path of light. When bill 323 appears in the clip 324 between the pulleys 211 conveyor belts and corresponding sets 213 pressure rollers, bill 323 will be taken and transmitted through the clamp 324 and each rubber part 307 is compressed radially inward due to pressure outer ring 304 through the bearing shells 306 and the inner ring 305. This movement will also be accompanied by radially inward movement of the pin 308, which will, therefore, continue to block the path of light rays from the LEDs 313 to the photosensitive 314, thus further weakening the light is transmitted to the transistor 314.

The microcomputer 318 continuously samples the output signals from the detectors 317 within the same forty equally spaced intervals, and instead distributes them to the appropriate Comparators 320. An example set of output signals caused by the presence of one of the banknote in the clip 324, illustrated by line 325 Fig. It will be seen that part of the line 325 is the same as line 321, but that part of the selection 0A it is substantially different. The comparator 320 compares sequentially forty-values with the corresponding forty values stored in the memory 319, and generate an output signal on the signal line 326 (see Fig)associated with the difference between the values, which is fed back to the microcomputer 318. As to be expected from the banknote with essentially constant density, the difference between the signals represented by line 325 and the corresponding part 322 of the saved profile is essentially constant.

The signal on line 326 is then compared by the microcomputer 318 with a previously stored threshold value that was set at a relatively low level. It is indicated by the dashed line 327. When this threshold is exceeded in a number of provisions of sample (usually less than forty, as the length is usually shorter than the circumference of the pulley 211), it is assumed that bill was certtain 324. If the presence of the banknote is detected by both of the photosensitive 314, the microcomputer 318 increases the counter value by 1. In addition, the threshold value is modified (usually increases) so that it represents the difference between the output of the detector and the stored profile corresponding to the banknote having half the thickness of the banknotes detected. Can also be used to share other than one half. Line 328 illustrates the output of the detector when the new threshold value.

For subsequent banknotes used this new threshold value, and the steps are repeated. Each time, when the banknote is detected, the counter is incremented. Fig illustrates the detection of single banknotes during successive rotations of the pulleys 211 periods 0A, AB and BC.

In addition, the microcomputer 318 determines indicate whether the output signals of the detector thickness greater than the threshold value 329, representing half the width of a single banknote, which means the passage of two bills through the clamp 324 at the same time. In this case, the microcomputer 318 will cause it to display the error message on the display 11 and additionally can make the sorter 1 banknotes to stop. An example of the output from detector 317 is illustrated by line 330.

Typical materials it is unlikely that the two are them one by one full rotation of the pulleys 211 and the pressure roller 213 will cause the photosensitive 314 to provide a completely similar output signals due to dirt, remaining from banknotes. Thus, for example, even when the banknote is not represented in the clip 324, the subsequent output signal that can be sensed by detectors 317 current may take the form shown by line 331 on Fig. After sampling and comparison under the control of the microcomputer 318, however, the microcomputer 318 determines that the difference between the output signals of the detector and the stored profile has not exceeded the threshold, and, thus, the microcomputer 318 assume that there was a passage of banknotes.

Additionally, during the period of time the output signal from detector 317 may change significantly, i.e. by an amount similar to that which would be expected from the passage of the banknote. In order for the device to continue to function, the microcomputer 318 makes a new profile stored by the memory 319 instead of the previously saved profile 321, 322 just before sorted new bundle of banknotes. In this way the threshold value, which must be initially determined by the microcomputer 318 adjusts automatically for changes in the profile.

In some cases, it may be a bent note, in this case, the microcomputer 318 will pass signals to one of the Comparators 320, which may indicate the presence of the banknote 323, at that time, the signals transferred to the other of the comparator 318, will assume that the banknote is not present. The microcomputer 318 may detect signals passed to it on lines 326 that they represent a distinct difference, and in this case may cause the display 11 to specify an appropriate error message.

The microcomputer 318 may also be programmed to detect half of the banknote, as well as bent banknotes and banknotes, which were submitted skewed way. In addition, one important characteristic is that it can be determined the length of the submitted bills. When the output signal from the photointerrupter 314 observed in eight or more positions, gradually can be achieved more accurate determination of the length of the supplied banknote. This is particularly useful since it provides independent from the time way of measuring the length of the banknote.

As previously explained, led 313 and the photosensitive 314 are covered in plastic casing 310 and are movable into and out of rod 303. In order to assemble the device, the housing 310 along with led 313 and the photosensitive 314 is moved into the rod 303 to until the holes 309 and 315 do not overlap. Rubber part 307 are then installed around the rod 303 and each pin 308 is then inserted through the rubber part of the holes 307 and 309 and 315. In conclusion, around resi the new pieces 307 are the inner and outer rings 305 and 304 and the bearing 306.

If desired, the pin 308 may be installed in the roller in a position which is diametrically opposite to the shown position, so that the pin moves from the outside and block the light decreases through the passage of the banknote through the clamp 319.

Duplicate detection can also be performed using the detector opacity, and the detection system 300 may contain such a detector.

System discharge device

Fig shows a side view of the machine 1 for sorting banknotes. Machine 1 for sorting banknotes contains three nodes 400, 401, 402 discharge devices, each of which is located adjacent to the transport route 403 and acts to withdraw banknotes from the transport route 403 in the respective pockets 5a, 5b, 5c. Any banknotes that have not been allocated to the transport route 403, formed in the pocket 6 of rejection.

A more detailed view of one of the nodes 400, 401, 402 of the discharge device for sheets shown in Fig as a perspective view. The site of the discharge device contains the axis 404, which is supported in bearings 405a, 405b, which are placed on opposite sides of the machine 1 for sorting banknotes. Many blades 406 of the discharge device is installed without the possibility of rotation on the axis. The blades 406 of the discharge device is ipino made of lightweight, but durable material, such as fiberglass. Alternative materials include carbon fiber and aluminum. These materials can be useful, as they are electrically conductive to dissipate static charge with banknotes.

At one end of the axis 404 is installed roller 407 axis of the discharge device, which is connected with a drive motor 408 DC through the elastic belts 411 and pulley drive motor 412. Elastic belt 411 is typically a rubber ring stretched over the roller 407 axis of the discharge device and pulley drive motor 412. Limit limiter 413 is mounted on a fixed thrust plate 414 so that the limit limiter 413 protrudes through the opening 415 in the roller 407 axis of the discharge device. In this way, the rotation axis 404 is limited arc defined by the size of the hole 415. As such, limit limiter 413 together with the hole 415 defines first and second position of the blades 406 of the discharge device.

The alternative, limit limiter 413 may be mounted on a supporting plate, which can move relative to the support site. Essentially, the position of the end stopper 413 can be adjusted, for example, to compensate for the variability of the positioning of the banknote supports the second transport mechanism, when she is sent to the node 400, 401, 402 of the discharge device of the leaves.

Turning these blades 406 of the discharge device in the first of the two positions, the banknote can be abstracted from the transport route 403 in that the second position of the banknote is stored on the transport route 403.

Fig and 30 show the side views of the site of the discharge device in the first and second position respectively. On Fig roller 407 axis of the discharge device and, consequently, the axis 404 of the discharge device and the blades 406 of the discharge device is rotated so far clockwise as possible, so that the right end of the hole 415 presses against an end of the stopper 413. The blade 406 of the discharge device is positioned so that the sheet passing through the hole 416 (which forms part of the transport route 403), is given along the top edge of the blade 406 of the discharge device in a corresponding one of the pockets 5a, 5b, 5c, associative discharge device.

On the contrary, Fig roller 407 axis of the discharge device is turned as far counterclockwise as possible, so that the left end of the hole 415 presses on the end limiter 413. The form of a document such as a banknote passing through the hole 416 can then be assigned to the lower edge of the blade 406 of the discharge device, so that it remains along the direction of the Commissioner plate 417, which also forms the trajectory of the transport route 403. In this way the note is not removed from the transport route 403 and moves to the next node 5b, 5c discharge device is in a pocket or 6 of rejection.

Now will be described with reference to Fig work site of the discharge device. This drawing shows a time chart showing the relative synchronization of the reset signal and the motor current. The diagram shows the signals for only one of the three discharge devices, but the work is identical for the other two.

On Fig decided to have a separate bill from the transport route 403 in the pocket 5a, 5b, 5c. As a result, the signal leads are provided at T0and causes the cascade of the engine, combined with a controller to operate the engine 408 when the current IMAX. For example, IMAXmay be 1.5 amps. After the time ΔT the motor current is reduced to IHOLDthat is, for example, may be 0.5 amps. Time ΔT is chosen such as to guarantee that the blades 406 of the discharge device can be moved from one position to another position before the current decreases with IMAXuntil IHOLD. Starting the engine 408 thus, the blade of the discharge device is moved to position 1, as shown in Fig, and bill is discharged into the corresponding CT is an.

The actual time taken for the blade 406 of the discharge device is moved from one position to another, will be in a typical embodiment, to depend on several factors, such as friction in the bearings 405a and 405b and the inertia of the engine and host of the discharge device. Thus, ΔT is selected such as to be significantly larger than the actual time, to ensure that the blades of the discharge device have sufficient time to change position.

At time T1the controller decides that another bill should not be given, and must remain on the transport route 403, and the reset signal changes accordingly to the opposite. As a result, the polarity of the motor current is changed and set to the value of IMAX. This causes the retractor to roll in position 2, as shown in Fig. Again, in the time ΔT after T1the motor current is reduced to-IHOLDat that size it continues to leak. It is important to understand that the time ΔT can, in fact, be different for each direction of operation of the discharge device.

This method of engine control allows the blades 406 of the discharge device to change the position quickly, and the motor current is then reduced to the level of IHOLDto the second holds the pulley 407 axis of the discharge device against the end limiter 413, but that will not be sufficient to overheating and, therefore, for the decommissioning of the engine 408. This reduced current IHOLDcan be applied to the motor is unlimited.

An unexpected benefit of reducing the motor current to the current retention thus consists in the fact that the reaction rate of the discharge device increases when the polarity of the motor current is changed, because the magnetic field of the associative associated with the current retention IHOLDlower than the maximum current IMAXand thus, there is a lower magnetic field, which needs to be overcome. Thus, the discharge device responds quickly when you need to change the blades 406 of the discharge device.

In a typical example, the value of IMAXis 1.5 and it is applied for 20 MS (i.e. ΔT=20 MS) before reducing the motor current to a value of IHOLD=0,5 A. in Addition, the effect of continuing to operate the engine 408, protects the drive belt 411 from loosening and do not allow the blades 406 of the discharge device is inadvertently moved. Engine 408 does not continue to rotate, but instead stops and essentially applies a constant torque to the pulley 412 of the drive engine, thus firmly holding the blade 406 of the discharge device in place.

It is when you want to change the position of the blade 406 of the discharge device, elastic drive belt 411 is taut, as the engine 408 starts to rotate before the inertia of the node 400, 401, 402 of the discharge device will be overcome. For example, if the engine 408 is rotated in a counterclockwise direction to vary with position 1 as shown in Fig, in position 2, as shown in Fig, then the drive belt 411 is tightened on his left side. In the result, the drive belt 411 stores energy during rotation axis 404 of the discharge device and the blades 406 of the discharge device, and this energy is introduced into the system after the left end of the hole 415 hits the limit limiter 413, and softens the rebound of the blade 406 of the discharge device from the end of the limiter 413. Essentially, the energy stored in the drive belt 411, trying to push the pulley 407 axis of the discharge device for limit limiter 413, and this prevents the pulley 407 axis of the discharge device from the rebound from the end of the limiter 413.

Fig shows a schematic view of the controller 418, in this case located on the PCB of the controller of the engine, for the propulsion of motor 408 together with the engine 409, 410 to control the other two nodes 401, 402 of the discharge devices in the car 1 sorting of banknotes.

When setting the DIVERT signal #1 controller 418 causes the output is asked 419 to move the engine 408 with current I MAXduring the time ΔT so that the blades 406 of the discharge device is moving to withdraw banknotes from the transport route 403. After ΔT controller 418 causes the output stage 419 reduce the current of the motor 408 to IHOLD. This current holding is maintained, as previously described, until DIVERT #1 will not be cancelled when the controller 418 causes the output stage 419 to move the engine 408 with current IMAXduring the time ΔT, thus returning the blade 406 of the discharge device is in the default position so that it does not recognize the banknote transport route 403. After ΔT the current is reduced to-IHOLDwhen this value is saved up until DIVERT #1 again will not be installed.

The controller 418 controls the engine 409 and 410 through the output stages 420 and 421 in the same way in response to signals DIVERT #2 and DIVERT #3.

Fig shows schematically a possible way of improving sorter 1 banknotes so that the banknote is presented in a mix of locations faceup and facedown, can be folded in a pocket, but all in the same location, either faceup or facedown. On Fig banknotes to be stacked in the output pocket 45, served on a transport route 427. If the note is correctly the contacting face, the discharge device 426 is not activated, and the banknote is sent by the first transport route 422. Bill then folded into the output pocket 425 without changing the position of its front side.

However, if the banknote is not in the desired location, for example, it is face-down when you want she was face up, and a discharge device 426 is activated, and the banknote is given by the second transport route 423. This transport route 423 passes bill to a toothed wheel 424, which essentially reverses the location of the front side of the banknote and places it in the output pocket in the opposite position to that in which it was originally. Therefore, all the banknotes transferred on the transport route 427, formed in the output pocket 425 in the same location of the front side.

In another embodiment, the engines 408-410 discharge devices may be substituted linear or rotary solenoids.

Weekend pockets

Each output pocket 5a, 5b and 5c formed of a metal body 500, which is bent so as to contain the components of the output of the pocket and also to form the storage 501, in which the banknotes allocated to the appropriate pocket can be folded.

In the case of 500 pocket 5a, 5b or 5c is triosi, where are each of the pairs of clamping rollers 213, and the fourth axis, on which is mounted a pair of toothed wheels 512. The axis on which are mounted gears 512, connected for rotation with one of the axes 502, which is equipped with one pair of pressure rollers 213, so that the gears move together with the transport belts 212.

This is best shown in Fig and 34. On Fig might be visible to the axis 502, which is one of the axes, which have one pair of pressure rollers 213. The pulley 503 mounted on axis 502 is connected through drive belt 504 with a pulley 505, which is connected through another tape drive 506 with a pulley 507. The pulley 507 is mounted on a shaft 508, which runs across the width of the pocket, as can be seen in Fig. At the other end of the axis 508 is installed pulley 509, which is connected with the pulley 511 gear wheels through drive belt 510. The drive belt 510 intersect, as can be seen in Fig, so that the direction of rotation of the toothed wheel 512 is a clockwise direction on Fig. The pulley 511 gear wheels mounted on the same axis as the gear 512.

Banknotes allocated to the transport route, move into the teeth of the gears 512 and then left on a plane in the store 501.

The presence of banknotes in the storage 501 is detected through the emitter 513 sensor banknotes and the corresponding detector 514 sensor banknotes, as shown, for example, on Fig. The emitter 513 sensor banknotes emits a beam of radiation that is detected by the detector 514 sensor banknotes through hole 515 in the housing 500. When the banknote is folded in the storage 501, the beam of radiation is interrupted, thus can be detected by the presence of the banknote.

In another embodiment, the output of the pocket it is provided with its own drive motor (not shown). This has some advantage in that it can reduce the cost of the output pocket. In this case, the gear wheel 512 may be stopped regardless of the transport mechanism, and it allows the banknote corresponding to a particular set of characteristics, to stay in gear when it stopped.

For example, the bill specified the detector system 300, as fake can be allocated in the output pocket, and the drive motor output pocket stops so that the banknote is held in the gear wheel 512 in the vertical view to the user.

Gear wheel 512 may be stopped by stopping the excitation current of the drive motor output pocket for a predetermined period of time after the document was discovered by one of the sensors of the transport mechanism, such as a sensor 223 preliminary CTE is Denia. It is possible to transport the document to be movable in this case, as it is independently driven.

Pocket rejection

Any banknotes that have not been allocated to the transport mechanism, folded into a pocket 6 of rejection. This is best shown in Fig.

It can be seen that the output pocket is just metal storage 600, which is formed neotvechanie banknotes. The set of pins 601 is mounted on a shaft 602. When the banknote is not represented in the repository 600, the pins protrude through the hole 603 in the repository 600. However, when the banknote is folded into a pocket of rejection, this causes the pins to rise, thus rotating axis 602, which operates to activate the sensor (not shown). The protrusion pins 601 through holes 603 helps in the detection of the first banknote, which must be entered into the pocket 6 of rejection, as the pins 601 then rise to significant value through holes 603. If the pins 601 simply remain on the basis of the pockets 6 of rejection, move, due to the fact that the first bill introduced into the pocket 6 of rejection, may be too small to be visible.

The sensor may be a microswitch, which is driven by the rotation axis 602. However, activation of the switch may require a significant expenditure of energy. Drugabusing, which overcomes this problem, involves the installation of a flag on the end of the axis 602, which interrupts the light beam between the emitter and the detector, when the axis 602 rotates. Alternatively, the box can be moved by the rotation axis 602 so that it no longer blocks the light beam, when the banknote is present in the pocket 6 of rejection. Yet another possibility involves the installation of a magnet on the end of an axis 602, the rotation of which causes the magnet to move to the device with Hall effect (or Vice versa, to get away from him), which detects the presence (or absence) of a magnet.

Thus, can be detected by the presence of the banknote store 600. The pins 601 also act to prevent the bill from going out of the pockets 6 of rejection.

Pocket 6 of rejection, can be provided with a lid 604, as shown in Fig. Cover 604 rotates around point 605 of rotation so that the banknotes can be removed from the pocket 6 of rejection. However, in the position shown banknotes allocated in the pocket 6 of rejection stop in front of the limiters 606 (which merged with lid 604) and, thus, are prevented from departing from the pocket 6 of rejection.

Electronic control system

The work of the sorter 1 banknotes are coordinated and controlled by the electronic circuit, distributed on four printed circuit boards. They ablauts the printed circuit Board main controller, PCB Board controller mode, the print controller card transport mechanism and circuit Board of the detector.

PCB main controller

PCB main controller shown in the form of a schematic block diagram for Fig. It is made on the basis of the microprocessor 701 Infineon C167. PCB main controller is provided with the power of 7.8 volts and 32 volts. The power of 7.8 volts regulated 5-volt regulator and monitor 702 PSU to apply 5 volts to the circuit of the main Board. Power 32 volts regulated to 4.2 volts in order to power the backlight in the display 11. 5-volt regulator and monitor 702 PSU adapted to issue a reset signal to the circuit Board main controller, when the power of 7.8 volts drops below the threshold level at which the regulator can no longer serve its 5-volt output signal, for example, when the sorter 1 bills off.

The microprocessor 701 is also connected to the static RAM (SRAM) 704 and a non-volatile memory in the form of flash memory 705 and ferromagnetic RAM (FRAM) 706. Suitable devices for FRAM 706 are made by the company Ramtron, and this type of device is used, as it is non-volatile and very fast, and although it is electronically programmable, it can preprogramming is to be more than 10 billion times.

Provides 8-bit trigger 707, which records when enabled, the code generated by the hardware communication lines connected to its inputs. The first 6 bits of the code indicates the type or version of the PCB, and the other 2 bits indicate the modification or production of printed circuit boards.

The second 64-bit ROM 708 serial sample stores the serial number of the PCB main controller to ensure unique identification. Such identification may be useful for maintenance purposes and to download software updates via the Internet. A suitable device is DS2401 company Dallas Semiconductor.

Light-emitting diode (LED) 709 is provided in order to indicate that PCB main controller is functioning correctly.

PCB main controller is also provided with an interface 710 universal serial bus (USB) and an additional interface 711, both of which are connected with C167-microprocessor 701.

C167-microprocessor 701 is provided with a network interface controller (CAN), and it is used for communication between PCB main controller PCB controller transport mechanism. PCB main controller acts as the main network interface controller.

Also used RS422 interface 713 to obespecheniyasi between PCB main controller PCB controller transport mechanism. This interface transmits timing information of the wheel from the PCB transport mechanism to the circuit Board main controller and can be used printed circuit Board of the host controller to issue a system reset. Print controller card transport mechanism for receiving the reset signal from the circuit Board main controller resets the information in the printed circuit Board of the motor controller.

C167-microprocessor 701 is additionally connected to the interface 714 display and interface 715 keyboard, which are appropriately connected to the display 11 and a keyboard 10. Interface 714 of the display may be addressed to any of the pixels on the liquid crystal display (LCD) 11 size 192x64 pixels. Interface 714 display also transmits the power from a 4.2-volt regulator 703 display 11 for lighting back lighting. Interface 715 keyboard receives signals from the keyboard 10 produced in response to pressing one or more keys.

There sounder 716, which may sound when a key is pressed on the keyboard 10 or when an error occurs.

Displays 8a through 8c drives and indicator 9 pocket rejection managed interface 717 display drive. He makes each display 8a through 8c counter to indicate the number, price or currency banknotes present in the corresponding output pocket 5a through 5c, and illuminates the indicator pocket rejection, when the banknote is present in the pocket 6 of rejection. Interface 717 may also cause the display 8a through 8c erupt if associative pocket 5a through 5c requires attention, for example because it is full.

Provides RS232 interface 718, which can send and receive signals via the printer port, the port of loading and port system cash management (CMS). Port of loading is used to load new software into the circuit Board main controller in order to update the fields.

CMS port allows the sorter 1 banknotes to connect to a remote personal computer, which can then observe the performance of the sorter 1, or perform full remote control of the sorter 1.

PCB Board controller engine

A schematic block diagram PCB engine controller shown in Fig.

PCB takes two separate 32-volt power supply from unit 19 power. The first 32-volt power supply is connected with 7,8-volt regulator 801, which produces 7,8-volt power supply, which is supplied to the print controller card transport mechanism and the circuit Board main controller. Conclusion from 7,8-volt regulator 801 also includes a 5-wills is a specific regulator 802, which generates 5-volt power supply for logic circuit on the circuit Board of the motor controller.

The second 32-volt power supply connects to a 24-volt regulator 803, which is used to provide the energy needed to operate the cooling fans. It is also connected with the cascade 805 engine transport mechanism and cascade 806 engines of the discharge device, and with 5-volt regulator 804, which generates 5-volt power supply used by the cascade 805 engine transport mechanism and cascade 806 engines of the discharge device.

Circuit Board of the motor controller based on PIC microcontroller 807.

In the same way as PCB main controller PCB controller of the engine is provided with a trigger 808 and serial ROM 809 connected to the PIC microcontroller 807, which specifies the type of code and data modifications and stores the electronic serial number accordingly.

There is also the led 810, which is illuminated to indicate that the circuit Board of the motor controller is working correctly.

PIC-microcontroller 807 is connected to the cascade 812 motor feeder and cascade 805 engine transport mechanism and cascade 806 engines discharge device is tion through opto-interface 811. Opto-interface 811 isolates PIC-microcontroller 807 from cascade 805 motor transport and cascade 806 engines of the discharge device so that the electronic noise generated by them does not affect the PIC-microcontroller 807.

PIC-microcontroller 807 operates to force the cascade 805 engine transport mechanism, cascade 806 engines of the discharge device and the cascade 812 motor supply to supply power to 32 volts at the motor transport mechanism, the motors of the discharge device and the feed motor accordingly to the desired polarity. The speed control of each of these engines is achieved using pulse width modulation.

Each of the cascade 805 engine transport mechanism, cascade 806 engines of the discharge device and cascade 812 feed motor requires a corresponding start signal to be activated. These signals are the signal 813 engine start transport mechanism, signal 814 engine starting of the discharge device and the signal 815 start the feed motor. They are served by the print controller card transport mechanism, as will be described later.

Circuit Board of the motor controller may also contact PCB controller transport is echanism through the I 2With interface 816 and through the RS422 interface 817, through which the circuit Board of the motor controller receives a reset signal issued by the print controller card transport mechanism.

Circuit Board of the motor controller is also provided with interface external temperature sensor, which is connected to the engine temperature sensor transport mechanism (not shown) on the motor housing 200 transport mechanism for PIC-microcontroller 807 could monitor the temperature of the engine 200 transport mechanism and stop the transport mechanism, if it exceeds the threshold value.

Interface 819 temperature cascade monitors the temperature of the cascade 805 motor transport and cascade 806 engines of the discharge device through the sensor PCB engine controller provided adjacent to the cascades 805 and 806. If any of these temperatures exceeds a predetermined threshold value, the cascade 805 engine transport mechanism and the cascade 806 engines discharge device stop working. The provision of these temperature sensors allows the cascades 805 and 806 to be used close to their operating temperature limits. In addition, it is possible to reduce the engine speed when the temperature reached is no pre-defined threshold value, in order to try to avoid having to stop the operation of the cascade.

In order to dissipate the heat produced by the cascade 805 engine transport mechanism, cascade 806 engines of the discharge device and cascade 812 feed motor, circuit Board of the motor controller is provided with a heat sink that is thermally connected to heat through-hole in a printed circuit Board that connects to the cascade 805 engine transport mechanism, cascades 806 engines of the discharge device and the cascade 812 feed motor.

RS232 interface 820 is provided to connect the PIC microcontroller 807 with load-port, through which software updates can be loaded into the circuit Board of the motor controller.

Print controller card transport mechanism

Print controller card transport mechanism shown in Fig.

Print controller card transport mechanism takes the energy of 7.8 volts from PCB engine controller and adjusts it to 5 volts using a 5-volt regulator 900. The resulting 5-volt output is used to power the circuit on the PCB controller transport mechanism.

Monitor 901 power supply monitors the output of the 5-volt regulator 900 and 32-volt in the water supply from unit 19 power and if any of them falls below a respective predetermined threshold value, the reset signal is issued C167-microprocessor 902. Monitor 901 power supply also receives a reset signal of the system via the RS422 interface 903, which allows the circuit Board main controller to reset the print controller card transport mechanism and PCB engine controller, as already described. RS422 interface 903 also receives signals from the detector 209 synchronization transport mechanism. This interface is used to improve the noise immunity of the signals that may otherwise be inclined to provide a false detection of one of the rows of holes 208, ending in a result of measurement errors transfer rate and offset.

Print controller card transport mechanism has the same placement of volatile and non-volatile memory, and the circuit Board main controller. That is, it is provided with the flash memory 904, a static RAM 905 and serial FRAM 906. Similarly, C167 microcontroller 902 is connected to the 8-bit trigger 907, which specifies the type of data and code modifications, and serial ROM 908, which stores an electronic serial number for uniquely identifying the print controller card transport mechanism.

Provided the led 909, which is illuminated to indicate that the print controller card transport mechanism is working correctly.

Interface 910 sensor transport mechanism connected to postdetection sensor and sensor preliminary drainage so that the position of the banknote transport mechanism may be C167 microprocessor 902.

Print controller card transport mechanism associated with the circuit Board of the motor controller via the I2With interface 911 and through the RS422 interface 912, through which the print controller card transport mechanism can issue a reset command to the circuit Board of the motor controller.

The connection between the circuit Board of the controller of the transport mechanism and the motor allows the signals to the engine control generated on the printed circuit Board transport mechanism, which has only the logical schema level. These signals are transmitted to the printed circuit Board of the motor controller and converted into signals of high power to operate the motors. This is to prevent noise which may be generated by signals of high power, from mixing with signals for controlling the engine, thereby improving the noise immunity.

C167 processor 902 also has to set the signal 913 engine start transport mechanism, signal 914 starts the and the feed motor and the signal 915 engine starting of the discharge device, which are connected to the circuit Board of the motor controller, as already described. There fuse 916 sensors direction, such that these three signals are removed when one of the many sensors direction (not shown) detects that the corresponding output pocket 5a, 5b or 5c was pulled in his position clear the jam, or the case 2, or the rear cover 22 open access. The direction sensors in a typical embodiment, are microswitches.

In addition to receiving commands reset system from PCB main controller RS422-interface 903 is used to transmit synchronization data wheel from C167 processor 902 printed on controller card transport mechanism to the circuit Board main controller.

In addition, a CAN-interface 917. CAN-interface allows data to be shared between devices connected to it, including PCB main controller PCB controller transport mechanism and the circuit Board of the detector.

C167 processor 902 is also connected to the auxiliary interface, which is connected to the auxiliary port (not shown) and with RS232 interface 919, which can take the updated software, which is loaded in the print controller card transport mechanism.

PCB det is ktora

Printed circuit Board of the detector is not shown in any drawings, but will be briefly described here.

It is based on digital signal processor (DSP) and Preconfiguring user matrix BIS (FPGA), typically Xilinx® Spartan®. The memory system includes a flash memory and static RAM. Printed circuit Board is also provided with a USB port for initial calibration and RS232 interface for diagnostic purposes.

PCB detector system receives signals from multiple detectors, which may include magnetic, ultraviolet, infrared, visible detectors and foreign objects. The signals are processed in a digital signal processor and BIS to determine the characteristics of each banknote, which passes through the detector system 300.

The function of the machine

The sorter 1 banknotes is controlled by the keyboard, and the information transmitted to the user via the display 11. They are shown in detail on Fig.

The display 11 is a liquid crystal display (LSD) 192×64 pixels. Each pixel is individually addressable, and the display can therefore be used to display graphics and text.

The keyboard 10 includes a 16 sensitive buttons, button start/stop, two arrows scroll to scroll up and down the display 11 and 4 display the keys, which perform actions, associative associated with icons that can be displayed on the display 11 adjacent to the corresponding display key.

When the banknote sorter is activated, the display 11 is displayed, requesting the user to enter the user's password. When the password is correctly entered, the banknote sorter goes by default to the standby mode.

In standby mode, the sorter 1 banknotes will begin to sort banknotes, which are located in the drive of the feeding mechanism, automatically, if the sorter 1 banknotes configured to start automatically. Alternative must be pressed the start button, if the sorter 1 banknotes is in manual mode. In this mode, run the sorter 1 banknotes can be returned to the standby mode by pressing the start button.

In standby mode the operator of the sorter 1 banknotes can also select the function mode of the sort, in which the sorter 1 banknotes sort are divided into three categories. The first category is the mode of hot functions. There are nine hot functions, and they are selected by pressing one of the buttons labeled ATM, FIT, 2XATM, VALUE, DENOM, ORINT, COUNT, ISSUE or FACE. Pressing one of these buttons causes the sorter 1 banknotes to enter into a pre-defined R the GIM sort as will be described later.

The second category is the function of combining, in which the operator can configure the sorting operation of the sorter 1 banknotes according to their current needs.

The third category is a user-defined mode in which one of the nine user-defined, preset combinations of sort mode can be used by pressing the programmable button, followed by one of the numeric buttons.

In standby mode, the sorter banknote can be put into configuration mode by pressing button SYSTEM. In this mode, the operator can change the configuration of the banknote sorter. They include a choice of automatic or manual feed, the installation of speed sorting, setting the maximum number of packets that can contain each output pocket and pocket rejection, the choice of currency for sorting, identification of the user password and the system password, which is used to prevent users from changing these configuration data to unauthorized users. In addition, the current configuration settings can be saved as user-defined mode. The default configuration can also be loaded to replace the tech is the relevant configuration.

The final mode of operation is the information mode, which is entered from standby mode by pressing TOTAL. In this mode, information such as the total number of sorted banknotes or their value may be displayed on the display 11 or transferred to PC.

The configuration of the pocket rejection

Pocket 6 reject accept banknotes that were not recognized or are not suitable for sorting. It can also be configured to accept certain types of banknotes on the basis of the characteristics of the banknotes that are detected by a detector system 300.

For example, the banknote can be tested for their authenticity by using ultraviolet, infrared, magnetic image magnetic protection code or the image detector, and any banknotes deemed unauthentic, can be sent into the pocket 6 of rejection. Other possible examples include the detection of suitability based on the degree of contamination, holes, tears, creases and damage to the magnetic thread. Banknotes can also be sent in the pocket 6 of rejection because of misconceptions, such as skewed feed, double feed or stream feeding banknotes.

The display 11 may be used to indicate which detectors are in use, displaying the icon, and the sensitivity of the particular types of detectors can be adjusted by the user.

CFA key on the keyboard 10 is provided in order to allow the user to turn off the detectors of authenticity. Detectors suitability and presentation remain enabled.

Instead of passing notes, which detector system 300 indicates how unauthentic, pocket 6 of rejection, it can be reset in one of the output pockets 5a, 5b, 5c. A corresponding pair of toothed wheel 512 may then be stopped with a fixed bill in the teeth, for example, in a vertical position. This clearly indicates suspicious banknote to the user. When the banknote is held in this position, the user can remove the bill for further inspection, replace it with the bill, which is known as true, or reject the decision to reject the bill. In the latter case, the user may, for example, to enter the denomination of the banknote, when the sorter 1 banknotes could not be determined.

Weekend pockets

The bottom two output pockets 5b and 5c known as pockets, sorting, and distribution of banknotes in them is controlled by signals from the detector system 300.

The detection system 300 is used to characterize each bill that passes through it. Banknote characterized to determine the orientation of the distinguishing features of banknotes (for example, currency, dignity and release) and persons who howl surface of the banknote and its suitability.

Characteristics of the banknote are used to sort it into one of the pockets provided sort when it meets all the criteria set for this pocket. Banknotes that do not meet the criteria of any of the pockets of the sort, go to the output pocket 5a. However, in some cases, the user may configure the pocket 5a to accept certain types of banknotes, in this case, the banknotes that are not sorted in any of the pockets 5a through 5c, go into the pocket 6 of rejection.

The table below shows each of the characteristics of banknotes and install pocket that can be applied to any of the output pockets with 5a through 5c.

Setting Auto-1 is used to configure pockets to accept submitted banknotes of the first type. For example, in the case of the advantages of installing pocket 5b in Auto-1 will cause it to take all ban the notes, which have the same advantage as the first bill which is fed to the sorter 1 banknotes. First filed subsequent banknote, which has another advantage, will be sent to the output pocket 5c, and the dignity of this bill will be an advantage for subsequent banknotes, served in a pocket 5c. All banknotes other advantages will be sent to the output pocket 5a.

Another possible mode of sorting based on the value of the sorted banknotes. In this mode, the banknote to one of the selected value are sorted in the first of the pockets 5a, 5b and 5c. Every other bill (except those that are sent into the pocket 6 of rejection) is sorted in one of the pockets 5a, 5b and 5c. The value of banknotes of the selected value, sorted in the first pocket, and the banknotes are sorted in the second pocket can be saved and displayed on the display 11 or the display 8a-8c counters.

Other features of the banknote, for example, the currency can be used to sort the banknotes in the respective output pockets 5a through 5c.

In another mode of operation two pockets can be assigned to receive the sorted banknotes alternately so that, for example, banknotes £10 is initially sorted in pocket 5b until then, until it becomes full, then as banknotes will instead be sorted in ka the man 5a. This allows empty pocket 5b, while the pocket 5a is filled, and when it becomes full, the banknotes can be sorted again into the pocket 5A. This allows continuous operation of the machine.

The development of this mode is best described by example. In this example, banknotes £10 sorted pocket 5b and banknotes £20 - pocket 5c. Pocket 5a is then used as in the above example, but in this case he accepts banknotes are used from the pockets 5b and 5c, which is filled first.

The sorter can also work in standalone mode, so that when the pocket reaches capacity, banknotes fed from the drive 100 one at a time. This is useful because it is possible that the transport mechanism can have a few bills in it, which will be perfectly sorted in a particular pocket. However, if one of these bills will fill the pocket, the remaining banknotes can only be rejected in the pocket 6 of rejection. Single mode prevents this, since only one bill is in the transport mechanism at any point in time, and if it fills the pocket, further banknotes are not served from the drive 100.

Assessment of suitability

The detection system 300 produces a signal of fitness, which informs the General condition of the banknote that is fed through it. The signal has a value which tion between 0 and 15, where 0 is the worst condition, and the 15 best condition.

The algorithm used to generate the signal suitability, aggregates results from multiple detectors suitability (e.g., detector contamination, detector holes, detector gap and detector folds). Each of these parameters may have a weighting factor applied to it to determine the effect it has on the overall signal integrity. The weights range from 0 to 255.

The advantage of weighted Association estimates that, for example, slightly dirty banknote with a small crease can be rejected, as will be rejected banknotes that are very dirty or have large folds, and all of them can be equally unacceptable.

For each parameter was affected equally, all coefficients should be set to 127. Increasing the weighting factor is greater than 127 will increase the impact that has this option to signal the suitability despite the fact that decreasing the value reduces the exposure. Setting the weighting factor to 0 prevents any influence of the parameter on the signal of fitness.

The user can set the weighting factors for each detector suitability to manage the balance criterion, SOR is key for suitability.

The user can assign a certain level of sorting on the suitability of the output afford 5a through 5c or, alternatively, can be used one of two preset levels.

The first preset level known as ATM and is used to sort the banknotes, which are suitable for use in devices for the issuance of money. The second level of fitness known as FIT and used to sort the banknotes that are suitable for re-issuing Bank clerk.

Detection of suitability can be used in two ways. It can be used to send unfit banknotes in the pocket 6 of rejection, or can be used to sort the banknotes in the weekend pockets 5a through 5c depending on their fitness level.

As already described, the signals received from each detector are multiplied by a weighting factor. The detectors can detect the degree of contamination of the banknote, the size of the gap in the bill, the size of the folds in the bill, the square holes in the bill, the amount of damage the inserted thread in the banknote and the size of the banknote. The weighted signals are then added together to produce the sum. Bill may be rejected in the pocket 6 of the rejection, if the sum exceeds a predetermined threshold value. Alternatively, the banknote can be adormirea the s at the weekend pockets 5a through 5c depending on the amount values.

An alternative mode of operation that uses weights, described now with reference to the following table:

WeightThe suitability levelPollutionGap (mm)Fold (mm)Hole (mm2)ThreadSize (mm)
OFF1001030100510
-491092781159
-382082464258
-273072149357
-164061836456
055051525555
146041216654
2 370399753
3280264852
4190131951
501000001000

In this alternative each detector suitability can be used in two different ways. They can be used as detectors of rejection, whereby unfit banknotes go into the pocket 6 of rejection, or they can be used in the sort mode suitability to send banknotes in different weekend pockets 5a-5c depending on their fitness level.

For example, the weighting factor has a default of 0, so any note, the size of the folds of which exceeds 15 mm, will be sent into the pocket 6 of rejection. Similarly, any bill with a gap larger than 5 mm, it will be sent to the pocket 6 of rejection. However, if the weighting factor of -2 is applied to the detector folds, and the weight ratio of -3 is applied to the detector gap, any bill with a fold greater than 21 mm, and any BA is the Knothe today with a gap, exceeding 8 mm will be dropped into the pocket 6 of rejection.

This mode can be used to sort the suitability weekend pockets 5a through 5c. For example, the default state ATM equals fitness level that is equal to at least 5, and the condition of the FIT - at least the suitability level 8. Taking the detector folds as an example, this means that the note may have folds, equaling not more than 15 mm, for use in automated teller machine (ATM) and not more than 24 mm for use by the cashier. Accordingly, the banknote satisfying levels 1-5, can be sorted in the output pocket 5a and banknotes satisfying levels of fitness 5, 6, 7 and 8, can be sorted in the output pocket 5b. Thus, the user knows that the banknotes in the pocket 5a usable ATM, whereas banknotes in your pocket 5b usable by the cashier. However, if you apply a weighting factor of -2, then the banknote with pleats 21 mm will be considered to meet the level of suitability of ATM and notes with pleats 30 mm will be considered to meet the level of suitability of the FIT.

Download status and stop

Each output pocket 5a-5c has a maximum load capacity 100 banknotes by default. This limitation can be adjusted separately for each output pocket 5a-5c in late up to a maximum of 200 banknotes.

Pocket 6 of rejection has a maximum capacity of 50 banknotes, but the default capacity is set at 20 banknotes.

The maximum number of load can also be determined by setting the maximum value of banknotes that can be present in the pocket. Thus, the download size will be set automatically depending on the denomination of the banknote. Thus, for example, the pocket may stop when he took 100 banknotes £10 or 50 banknotes £20, as the sum of both is £1000. In addition, the sorter can be configured so that the pocket receives the first bill filed out of the pack, located in the drive, and then all subsequent banknotes with the same dignity in the stack are served in the same pocket as long, yet it will not be the maximum value. Further banknotes of the same advantages can be allocated then in the other pocket until it's emptied. Alternatively, one of the other pockets can accommodate the first and all subsequent banknotes from the stack, which have a great advantage from the first filed of the banknote. Usually, all the banknotes that are discovered as a fake, it will drop into the pocket 6 of rejection.

The sorter 1 banknotes can be configured to operate in any one of three modes of recovering the Cai, shown in the table below.

The stop modeDescription
SingleThe sorting operation is stopped whenever any pocket becomes full.
Circular AThe sorting operation is stopped when both pockets full sort. If the user empties the pockets, when they become full, the sorter will make the cycle between using pocket 5c pocket and 5b.
The sorter will also stop whenever the pocket 5a or pocket 6 full rejection.
Cyclic BThe sorting operation stops when all the pockets 5a, 5b and 5c full. If the user empties the pockets, when they become full, the sorter will make the cycle between using pocket 5c, pocket 5b and pocket 5a. When switching pockets sorter will always use the pocket 5c, if it is available. In this mode there is no separate configuration management for pocket 5b.
The sorter will also stop whenever the pocket 6 of rejection becomes full.
This mode is typical what about for continuous operations count without requiring sorting.

The sorter 1 banknotes selects the stop mode automatically to keep the UI as simple as possible. The default is a single stop mode. However, if the user configures the weekend pockets 5b and 5c so that they have an identical setup, then use the stop mode, cyclic A. If the output pockets 5a and 5b do not have installations sort (i.e. they can take any document), that selects the stop mode, cyclic B.

Management recognition of the banknote

Typically, the sorter 1 banknotes is used to process banknotes and detector system 300 attempts to identify these banknotes. In some cases, however, you want to sort or count the documents other than bills, for example, cheques or vouchers. In this case, the process identification document is disabled, and any detectors that rely on information about dignity, not function.

Display value

The number of documents in each output pocket 5a through 5c may be displayed on the display 11, as or piece count (i.e. the number of documents in the pocket 5a through 5c) or value documents, or as dignity shared or individually. The user can switch between what is displayed in the context of the specific point in time.

The type of display that does not affect how the sorter 1. Both are available regardless of the sort mode, except in those modes in which the control detection is disabled.

Separate displays pockets 8a through 8c are limited to three digits and only display the piece count for this pocket.

Modes shortcuts

The most commonly used sorting program are pre-defined and assigned to a hot key, as already described, so that the choice of mode can be obtained by pressing a key.

Sitting and standing modes

Machine 1 for sorting banknotes has a user-defined mode, which indicates whether it is used in a standing or sitting installation, that is, whether the cost is usually paratory or sit, when using the machine.

In sessile mode of the lower pocket 5c is assigned as the primary or priority pocket, and pocket 5c will then be filled first, for the convenience of the operator. On the contrary, in a standing mode, the top pocket 5a is assigned as the primary or priority pocket.

Typically, priority pocket takes the first bill submitted from a stack of banknotes, which satisfies a predefined set of characteristics (for example, she has a predefined value). All subsequent banknotes that meet these characteristics are also served in this pocket. The first and all subsequent notes, satisfying a different set of characteristics (for example, another advantage) then served in one of the other (non-priority) pockets.

Sorting in half pass

In this mode, sorting sorter takes control of banknotes with a mixture of face - faceup and facedown. Banknotes with the location faceup, with the same orientation, are served in the output pocket 5a (for example), and notes with location faceup, with a different orientation, are served in the output pocket 5b (for example). All banknotes with the location facedown served in the output pocket 5c. These banknotes then deleted the C pocket 5c and placed back into the input drive 100 after how are turned so that they lie in face-up and can be sorted according to their orientation in the pockets 5a and 5b.

In this mode, the sorting cost or piece counting banknotes lodged in the pocket 5c is not added to the combined total cost or piece counting (which only includes the cost or piece counts pockets 5a and 5b). This allows removal and re-sorting of banknotes from his pocket 5c without interrupting operation of the machine.

An additional advantage arises from the fact that there is a maximum of two bulk packs of banknotes at the end of the sorting operation, while in a car with four pockets, which sorts on the front side and orientation simultaneously in four pockets, there will be a maximum of four incomplete packages.

Documents without a value

May be useful in some circumstances to enable the abstraction of documents without a value in one of the output pockets 5a through 5c. For example, documents separators (which may include cards or strips of paper, from which information relating to sort the stack can be read by a machine or a human operator) are often used to indicate what portion of the cash bundles of banknotes has been removed. It may be useful to take them into his pocket 5a through 5c together with BA is Khatami, but don't count them in the piece count and the count value.

The language selection

The machine can also be translated in the language mode by switching it off and then turn on while holding a predefined key on the keyboard. This can be useful if the user carelessly chose the language he does not understand, so he can easily go back through a known process to the language which he understands without having to overcome the menus and screen layouts in a foreign language.
