The best option of carrying out the invention

An implementation option device authentication of banknotes in accordance with the invention is described hereinafter with reference to Fig.1 - Fig.5.

As shown in Fig.1 and 2, the device 10 authentication of banknotes includes placed next to the channel 13 of the magnetic sensor 20, such as a magnetic head or IP Hall, the roller 27 of the pusher to force the movement of the inserted banknote or document to the magnetic sensor 20 and the optical sensors 21 to 26, such as optocouplers, each of which includes a light emitting diode (LED) and a phototransistor (PT). Magnetic sensor 20 detects the presence of iron-containing paint, applied at pre-defined places banknotes. The inlet sensors 21 to 23 for detecting characteristics bandwidth bills infrared beam is installed close to the holiday device 10 authentication and FT 22b attached to the upper part 31 of the housing. Sensors authentication consist of magnetic sensor 20 and the optical sensors 21 to 26.

In order to open the upper part 31 of the casing and is easy to remove crumpled banknotes within the channel 13, the upper part 31 of the casing are connected with the bottom part 30 of the hinge housing through a shaft (not shown). For the formation of the channel 13 between the lower part 30 of the casing and the upper part of the housing 31, as shown in Fig.1, the lower part 30 of the casing and the upper part 31 of the housing total housing 28. In this case, each of the optical sensors 24 and 25 has a structure with a parallel arrangement of DM and CTF and receives a light beam reflected respectively from the front and rear surfaces of banknotes. For registration provisions and the passage of the banknote on the transmittance characteristics of the infrared beam through the banknote optical sensor 26 has a SD 26a attached to the lower part 30 of the housing, and FT 26b attached to the upper part 31 of the housing.

The conveyor 16 includes two conveyor belts 15, which is wound on two driven pulley 17. In the upper part 31 of the housing of the rotating rollers 32, 33 to force the movement of the banknote or document to strip lentity the passage of the banknote or document, in the lower part 30 of the housing behind the optical sensor 25 on the axle 35 has a swing arm 34. The first end of the lever 34 is connected with the spring tension 36, which is attached to the lower part 30 of the housing so that the second end of the lever 34 is out in the channel 13. When moving through the channel 13 banknote or document presses on the second end of the lever 34 and rotates the lever 34 in the clockwise direction against the elastic force of the spring 36 so that the banknote or document may overcome the force of the lever 34. When the bill passes through the lever 34, opto sensor 37 of the lever optical image detects the first end of the rotatable lever 34. Since the channel 13 to the outlet 14 communicates with a wide channel, which is formed in accordance to the authenticator of the banknote 10 drive 11, the conveyor 16 unloads bill from the outlet 14 and transports it further on a wide canal.

As shown in Fig.3, the magnetic sensor 20, the optical sensors 21 to 26 and the sensor lever 37 is connected through an amplifier circuit 39 with the corresponding input pins of the circuit 40 recognition, weekend conclusions are appropriately connected with the circuit 41 controls the conveyor motor 16. Scheme 41 Opticheskie associated with the drive pulley 17.

Scheme 40 recognition contains a single-chip microcomputer or programmable Central processing unit (CPU), a discrete IC or circuit that can be switched to any one of the authentication modes in which the circuit 40 recognition can verify the authenticity of banknotes on the basis of the output signals of the sensor authentication, specifies the mode in which the circuit 40 recognition is read in slave mode, in which the circuit 40 recognition status is rewritable, and in boot mode, in which you can perform the download operation.

Although it is not shown, but to view the optical characteristics on the surface of the banknote scheme recognition 40 includes an optical detector for receiving the output signals of the optical sensors 21 to 26; memory samples the optical characteristics for storing pre-defined samples of optical characteristics; a first comparator to detect the presence of coincidence between the output signals of the optical detector and the sample optical characteristics stored in memory samples the optical characteristics; ferrometalco for receiving output signals of the magnetic Datta banknote; memory samples magnetic characteristics for storing pre-defined samples of magnetic characteristics and a second comparator to detect the presence of coincidence between the output signals of ferrodielectric and samples of magnetic characteristics, stored samples of the magnetic characteristics.

If the first and second Comparators detect the coincidence between the output signals of the optical detector and the sample optical characteristics and between the output signals of ferrodielectric and samples of magnetic characteristics, the circuit 40 recognition produces a signal matches to the circuit 41 controls the conveyor motor 16, was submitted to the control signal movement to transport the banknotes to the outlet 14. Thus, the output signals of the sensors authentication scheme 40 recognition in the authentication mode produces a solution that is inserted into the device authentication 10 the document is genuine or counterfeit banknotes, and produces output signals for movement of the conveyor 16.

As shown in Fig.3, the circuit 40 recognition includes a rewritable memory 43, a ROM 45, United with pertapis is about managing a computer program and the boot program. The ROM 45 contains a rewritable or perezapisannaya and calculated or computed by the computer masked by the CPU ROM or hybrid IC for storing and executing setup slave mode.

The ROM 45 is a lot of conclusions, each of which is separately connected to a rewritable memory 43, the output 44 of the load, the input output 46 of the load, the switch 47 launcher switching circuit 40 recognition in download mode, which can be produced by the load operation, the switch 48 master mode (setup tool setting mode for the switching circuit 40 of recognition specifying the mode in which the circuit 40 recognition is read, and the switch 49 slave mode (setup tool slave mode) for the switching circuit 40 recognition in accordance with the setup slave mode from the ROM 45 in slave mode, in which the circuit 40 recognition is in a state of being overwritten.

Without actuation of the switch 48 setting mode and switch 49 slave mode, the ROM 45 is normally in the authentication mode, in which the circuit 40 recognition can make proverb, the switch 47 startup switches ROM 45 circuit 40 recognition from one mode to another, for example, the authentication mode in the boot mode, which can be produced by the load operation. In the present invention the presence of the switch 47 start optional. The switch 48 master mode trigger for the switching circuit 40 recognition from the authentication mode or another mode to specify the mode in which the circuit 40 recognition is read, and Vice versa. The switch 49 slave mode trigger for the switching circuit 40 recognition from the authentication mode or another mode in the boot mode, in which the circuit 40 recognition is in a state of rewriting, and back.

Scheme 40 recognition setting device switch to setting mode by actuation of switch 48 master mode, so in this case, after actuation of the switch 47 starts to transmit the necessary information, including the boot program in scheme 40 recognition of the slave device, which switches to download mode by actuation of switch 49 slave mode in the TBA, which is recorded in a rewritable memory 43 downloaded the information transmitted from the circuit 40 recognition setting device through the input output 46 of the boot. Downloadable information includes a boot program and control programs for the authentication of banknotes and control the movement of the conveyor 16.

New programs pre-installed in a rewritable memory 43 setting device using a personal computer, which is connected with the circuit 40 recognition setting device, to later perform the download operation circuit 40 recognition of the slave device. Otherwise, the new program is installed in a new EPROM for rewritable memory 43, which is then mounted on circuit Board circuit 40 recognition. In other words, the circuit 40 recognition setting device already contains the new program, because the load operation is complete.

In this invention, in the device 10, the authentication output 44 of the load circuit 40 recognition setting device connected to the input output 46 of the load circuit 40 recognition of the slave device so that when a load operation to write but the key diagram 40 recognition of the slave device can be used as a driver. Scheme 40 recognition of the slave device has the same rewritable memory 43, a ROM 45, and the 40 recognition setting device.

In particular, when the actual load operation, as shown in Fig.4, the output 44 of the load circuit 40 recognition setting device connected to the input output 46 of the load circuit 40 recognition of the slave device so that the device 10 authentication that is used as a setting could have a relationship with another device authentication 10 used as the slave, through a communication line, comprising output 44 download and input output 46 of the boot. If the load operation is produced for the first time, instead of circuit 40 recognition setting device with an input output 46 download slave device can be connected to output load external card CPU.

When after asking and slave devices are connected, decide on the execution of the load operation, the switch 48 master mode circuit 40 recognition setting device is switched to the " on " position to switch it in the master mode. Simultaneously, the switch 49 slave mode circuit 40 rozpoznawania switch 47 start setting device is switched to the on state, reads downloadable information from the rewritable memory 43 setting device in accordance with the programs load stored in the circuit 40 recognition setting device so as to transmit load information via output 44 of the load setting device input and output 46 download slave to the circuit 40 recognition of the slave device.

Then download the information recorded in the rewritable memory 43 of the slave device in accordance with the boot program from the circuit 40 recognition setting device. In this case, through the output 44 of the load setting device input and the output 46 of the boot of the slave device are loaded from the setting device in a slave all the information, including the boot program, and store it in a rewritable memory 43 slave so that the slave device 10, the authentication could be later used as sets. In addition, after the load operation is stored in the rewritable memory 43 of the slave device information is removed or destroyed, and new information in a rewritable memory 43 slave preserve by setting the 45.

During operation, the control circuit 40 recognition is carried out in accordance with the sequence of operations shown in Fig.5.

Execution begins with step 50 START and go to step 51, where the circuit 40 recognition produces a decision whether it is in the authentication mode or setting mode. After the circuit 40 recognition decides that it is in the authentication mode, the processing procedure proceeds to step 52 at which the circuit 40 recognition determines detect whether the input sensors 21 to 23 banknote or document that is inserted into the inlet 12. After the circuit 40 OCR determines that the input sensors 21 to 23 banknote is not detected, the procedure returns to step 50. If the inlet 12 of the inserted banknote, the input sensors 21 to 23 produce detection signals supplied to the circuit 40 recognition. Then, the circuit 40 recognition takes decisions about the detection of the banknote and transmits signals to control movement of the control circuit 41 by the motor to perform the rotation of the motor 42 of the conveyor in the forward direction, as shown in step 53 of Fig.5. Thus, the drive pulleys 17 means of the conveyor 16 and to move the bill to the magnetic sensor 20.

Then at step 54, the circuit 40 recognition decides detected whether the magnetic sensor 20 iron-containing component on the bill or not. If the magnetic sensor 20 detects on the banknote iron-containing component, the circuit 40 OCR determines that inserted into the inlet 12 of the paper is bill. Then, at step 55, the circuit 40 receives recognition output signals from the magnetic sensor 20 and the input of the sensors 21 to 23 as information about the inserted banknote. Magnetic sensor 20 transmits multiple signals received from iron-containing material of the banknote, on ferrometalco circuit 40 of recognition, which then stores this data.

Then at step 58, the circuit 40 recognition ceases to apply signals to control movement of the motor 42 of the conveyor to stop the conveyor motor 42, and first and second comparator circuits 40 recognition make the comparison of the received optical signals and magnetic detectors predefined samples of optical and magnetic characteristics stored in memory samples the optical characteristics and memory samples magnetic characteristics, in order to determine whether these samples with setup 57). After the discovery phase 57 genuine banknotes in step 58, the circuit 40 recognition on the detected sample magnetic characteristics also produces a decision about the type of the banknote and its value.

At step 58, the circuit 40 recognition determines whether the banknote payment means a predefined type or not. If the banknote is one of the predefined types of payment instruments on stage 59 of the drive motor 42 of the conveyor in the forward direction. When the bill passes through the lever 34, the sensor lever 37 detects the end of the rotatable lever 34 and at the stage 60 provides an output signal that is obtained by the circuit 40 of recognition.

Once the bill has passed through the lever 34, the circuit 40 recognition terminates the output signal to stop the operation of the motor 42 of the conveyor from step 61 to step 71.

If at step 54 the inserted banknote is not detected iron-containing component, that is, if the stage 57 is established that the inserted bill is not authentic or if at step 58 it is established that the banknote does not belong to any pre-specified type of means of payment, execution passes to step 62, sursaut to the inlet 12. If at step 63, the input sensors 21 to 23 nothing is found, then at step 61 the operation of the motor 42 of the conveyor is stopped and the execution of the processing procedure goes to step 71.

If circuit 40 recognition on the stage 51 decides that she is not in the authentication mode, the procedure goes to step 64, where it is determined whether it is in the master mode. If it is not in setting mode, then the procedure returns to step 50. If circuit 40 recognition setting device at step 64 decides that the switch 48 setting mode set to ENABLED and specifies the mode, at step 65, the switch 49 slave mode is switched to the on state to the switching circuit 40 of the recognition of the slave device in slave mode. After that, at step 66, the switch 47 start setting device is switched to the on state, so that the rewritable memory 43 worked the boot program (step 67). Following this, at step 68, the circuit 40 recognition setting device transmits the loaded information of the rewritable memory 43 setting device through the output 44 of the load setting device input and output 46 C is download and burn bootable information in a rewritable memory 43 of the slave device. Thus complete the load operation (step 70).

The invention can be modified in shape as compared with the above-described embodiment. As the switch 47 of the start switch 48 setting mode and switch 49 slave mode can be used in sensors to detect any signals or electronic funds received programmable control.

FIELD: magnetic thread recognition means.

SUBSTANCE: method provides for relative movement between thread and matrix of magnetic heads; each head generates a signal in case of detection of a portion of thread. Approach of thread to one of heads is detected, while this head is marked as main head, and heads on each side of the latter - as secondary heads. Output signals from main and secondary heads are controlled for forming of an image of thread signals amplitudes from main and secondary heads are compared, so that if amplitude of output signal from secondary head exceeds amplitude of signal from main head, then secondary and primary heads are appropriately reassigned.

EFFECT: higher speed of operation, higher efficiency.
