The invention relates to ATMs. In particular, the present invention relates to the ATM, through which are issuing bills to customers, which has an internal storage of banknotes, the replenishment of which can be done without access to the interior of the ATM.

ATMs are devices well known in the art. The usual type of ATM is an ATM type "automatic teller" ("ATM"). Developed ATMs, perform many banking transactions, including cash withdrawal in the form of banknotes. Other types of ATMs provide users, such as Bank clerks, cashiers and other service providers, Bank notes and bills of other types. Other types of ATMs provide goods such as tickets, travelers ' checks, receipts of acceptance of deposits, certificate of execution of payments or instruments of acceptance of bets in gambling. The issuance of these goods at ATMs usually carried out based on an assessment of compliance costs and credits the amount of the appropriate accounts of the client, the owner of the ATM and supplier-issued goods. Under used in this description, the term "automated device perform banking operations", or "ATM"means any device that performs banking operations, including operations with objects that have value in monetary terms. In addition, as used in this description, the term "bill" can cover a bills, statements and other items, such as tickets, travelers ' checks, receipts of acceptance of Deposit, certificates of payment, traveller's cheques, instruments of acceptance of bets in gambling, advertising materials on granting concessions or other similar types of goods.

ATMs issuing banknotes, including sheets, with a cost in terms of money, usually created in such a way as to prevent unauthorized access to the storage of banknotes inside the ATM, by unauthorized individuals. In most cases, these ATMs contain a secure box or another secure the camera. Managing access to the interior of the camera is realized by means of a lock or other safety device so that the right of access to the inner part could have only the appropriate staff. The inner part of the protected camera usually has areas for storing various bills, including bills, sheets and other items having monetary value. Storage area is often located inside a removable containers or cells of other types, which may be easily installed in the ATM machine and retrieved from it, if you have access to a protected area. Issuing bills to customers via ATM is carried out on the areas for storing banknotes. If necessary, recharge areas for the storage of banknotes, the person responsible for the operation of the ATM, opens a secure mailbox and replenishes the stock of banknotes. In some cases, this surgery is performed by extracting the spent or partially spent containers and replacement of these containers filled containers. In other cases, this operation may include the operation of placing the "pack" bills or other bills in containers or in other areas for the storage of banknotes, whereby carry out replenishment of banknotes.

The design of such conventional ATMs has the disadvantage that for replenishment of the banknotes you need to open the protected area of the ATM. This operation allows the person responsible for the operation of the ATM to access all valuable banknotes, as well as to sensitive electronic equipment inside the ATM. This provides the opportunity for theft and misuse. When replacing the containers several people can have access to the container during loading, transport and installation of the ATM. Similarly, partially used containers returned from Banco is the ATA to replenish, can also pass through the hands of a few people. It may also provide an opportunity for petty theft, liability for which is difficult to assign to a specific person. Were designed containers for storing banknotes, tamper-evident and indicates the presence of unauthorized opening. However, such containers are not fault-tolerant and can be seamlessly opened by qualified thieves. There is also the possibility of theft of containers for storing banknotes entirely during their transportation to the ATM to and from them. In addition, the use of containers with money is expensive. The use of such containers increases the cost of ATMs, because of the need to include in their composition mechanisms, which can provide unlocking, locking and functioning in combination with containers for banknotes. The operations of loading, unloading and transportation of containers also leads to additional costs for operation of the ATM.

Cheaper cash machines are often installed at gas stations, convenience stores with extended working day and in other outlets. These cash machines are often only perform banking transactions at the cash money. Although reduced prob is gnosti these ATMs provide a lower initial cost when buying ATM however, there are problems caused by the necessity of loading and unloading of banknotes. Because the security in such retail outlets is often not at the same high level as in the conditions of the Bank, to perform operations replenishment of cash in these cash machines often use a courier service using armored vehicles. This leads to a further increase in the cost of operating the ATM.

For persons responsible for the operation of ATM machines located in retail outlets, it may be desirable to produce replenishment of banknotes in such ATMs of the money available in such a facility. Through this you can avoid the costs associated with the need to pay for the services of third parties for replenishment of cash that provides a reduction in operating expenses. However, in many cases when cash transactions in retail outlets confidence of staff is not verifiable. As a result, providing sales personnel access to large amounts of cash inside the ATM, it may be undesirable for the person responsible for the operation of the ATM. Can be restrictions, namely, that actions to replenish the stocks of money in the Aceh ATMs serves only middle management personnel, having authority control. However, despite these precautions, there may be shortages and mismatches. This statement is especially true for those cases where access to the interior of the ATM have a few people.

Recently been developed ATMs that can "reuse" of money. These ATMs can accept banknotes from the client or from the person responsible for the operation of the ATM, and to determine the authenticity and denomination of each particular banknotes. These ATMs provide selective storage of deposited banknotes in certain places inside the ATM. After that, when the same or another client submits a request to issue banknotes ATM issues previously deposited banknotes. An example of such ATM is shown in U.S. patent No. 6109522 included in the description by reference. Despite the fact that the replenishment of banknotes in these ATMs can be carried out without access to the interior of the ATM, these ATMs are often complex and expensive. Setting this cash may not be economically feasible in areas that currently use relatively cheap ATMs, perform only the operation of the cash.

Also is there many other types of machines for self-service and vending machines, managed clients such as pumps dispensers for motor fuel, vending machines, vending machines selling tickets and slot machines. Such devices often have one of these means of interaction with the client, which is capable of reading the customer's credit card. Moreover, such devices typically have the ability to recover from the customer's account payment for goods or services. An increasing number of machines for self-service have the ability to accept smart card customers. Smart card equipped with a storage device that contains data about the amount of money. Instead of collecting payment from the customer's account such devices also have the option of deducting money from their volume, which displays by means of data stored in a storage device of a smart card of the customer. Devices such as those described above, typically do not have the possibility of receiving and delivery of cash, and these devices can be improved by providing additional opportunities of receiving and issuing banknotes.

There are several factors that impede progress in this area. First, the mechanisms for issuing and receiving cash are usually expensive that drive the t to prohibitively high costs of purchase and operation of such devices. Secondly, such devices typically do not contain remedies that are equipped with ATMs or transfer devices for cash, because the products, the issuance of which is usually realized by means of such devices, it is difficult to directly implement for cash. Another reason for the lack of possibility of reception and/or cash in such devices is that to ensure this capability would require the above additional costs associated with the transportation of cash, which often take place during operation of ATMs and transfer devices for cash and which are firms that operate these devices. Another disadvantage is that inlining and receive cash in such devices can lead to the fact that their operations limit the selected working hours and such locations where it can be provided with greater security. Therefore, despite the fact that from the customer's perspective, it is useful to have the ability to receive and cash in devices such as pumps dispensers for motor fuel and vending machines, the supply of such devices, these features usually was impractical because of their prohibitive the th value.

Thus, there is a need to create a ATM, which is not only more economical in production and operation, but also have very high reliability. In addition, there is a need to create a cash machine in which the replenishment bills, including bills or other sheets having monetary value, can be performed without having access to the area for storing the banknotes inside the ATM. In addition, there is a need to create a cash machine containing such a node receiving and issuing of banknotes, which only slightly increases the cost of manufacture and operation of the ATM.

Additional or different other objectives of the present invention, a variant of which is shown as an example, will become apparent from the following description of the best embodiments of the invention and appended claims.

The above objectives are achieved by creating a cash machine in the form of its realization, which is given as an example. The cash may be a cash machine, whose main function is receiving and/or issuing of banknotes, such as banknotes. In an alternative embodiment, the main function of the ATM may be, for example, the automated sale of automotive fuel, lottery tickets, documents on acceptance rates in gambling, food products, tobacco products, checks, performing money transfers or other banking operations, and it can contain the function of issuing and/or receiving banknotes with a value in monetary terms, such as banknotes.

In one of the embodiments, which are given by way of example, the ATM is the case ATM. Inside there are areas in which there are means of customer interaction with the ATM, containing at least one input device through which an ATM machine m which can be obtained at least one data entered by the client ATM. Hole for receiving banknotes, as well as the hole for the issuance of banknotes, is designed so that pass through the housing to the outside.

Inside the ATM is the mechanism for receiving and issuing banknotes. The mechanism of acceptance and issue of banknotes contains the storage of banknotes, which in the described embodiment, given by way of example, used for storing banknotes. The mechanism of acceptance and issue of banknotes also contains a channel through which pass the banknote by taking them through that mechanism for storing them in the repository. Banknotes pass through a channel at the rear of the store, which is carried through this mechanism.

Describes an implementation option, which is given as an example, further comprises means for transporting banknotes from the hole for their reception, which is located between the hole for receiving banknotes and bandwidth channel. Next to means of transporting banknotes from the hole they receive is device authentication of banknotes. The device authentication of banknotes functions in such a manner that carries out the recognition of banknotes inserted through a hole for them to determine the authenticity of banknotes.

The tool 98 transportation of banknotes of holes for receiving and the means 96 transportation bills to the hole for the issuance of more than shown in detail in Figure 5. The tool 96 transportation bills to the hole is to issue them contains the tape 102 and the set of guide rollers 104, which engages with the bill. Tape 102 and the guide rollers 104 engages with located between bill so that during movement of the belt 102 moves the banknote between bandwidth channel 92 and the hole 28 to issue banknotes. It should be understood that although in the above described example of a variant embodiment of the invention as a means 96 transportation bills to the hole to issue them use the means of transportation in the form of a tape and rollers, in other embodiments of the invention can be used in other structures of the interacting belts, rollers or other moving elements suitable for engagement of banknotes and their movements.

In the described embodiment, which are given by way of example, the tool 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for reception device 58 authentication of banknotes. In the described embodiment, which are given by way of example, the device 58 authentication of banknotes can contain standard commercially available tool banknotes, which operates in such a way that recognizes and determines the authenticity of certain types of banknotes. In the case when the ATM 10 is designed so that the receiving and issuing dvadtsatimetrovy unknot, the device 58 authentication of banknotes can be a recognition device whether the inserted banknote is genuine dvadtsatipostovoy bill. The device 58 authentication of banknotes contains a button in it or near it, essentially, non-slip portion 106 funds 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for their reception. Non-slip part operates in such a way that ensures the engagement and movement of the banknotes inserted into the hole 30 for receiving the banknotes through the device 58 authentication of banknotes. Non-slip portion 106 normally operates in such a way that ensures the movement of banknotes through the sensors available in the device 58 authentication of banknotes, which are necessary for recognition of the banknote and determine its authenticity for a decision about her ingestion of the ATM 10. In that case, if it is determined that the inserted bill is not genuine, or, in other words, unfit for ingestion of the ATM 10, the non-slip portion 106 operates in such a way that after moving the banknotes inside the device 58 authentication of banknotes carries out its movement in the opposite direction out through a hole 30 for receiving banknotes. The device 58 authentication of banknotes performs this operation on the basis of his is nutrena program, in alternative embodiments implement it performs this operation in cooperation with the controller 52.

In that case, if the banknote is inserted through the hole 30 for receiving banknotes identified as genuine and accepted by the device 58 authentication of banknotes, non-slip portion 106 funds 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for reception functions in such a way that skips the banknote available in the tool 98 transportation of banknotes portion 108 has a limited slip. Part 108 having limited sliding contains the tape 110, and the guide rollers 112. Tape 110, and the guide rollers 112 serve as saralaya items with a limited slip, which provide engagement of banknotes, passing inside of the device 58 authentication of banknotes. However, the portion 108 having limited sliding functions in such a way that applies to bill power, insufficient for removing it from engagement with non-slip part 106 until then, until the separation of the banknotes from the non-slip portion 106. This allows you to move the bill through the device 58 authentication of banknotes from the above example of a variant embodiment of the invention in the reverse direction at a sufficient distance so that she could voit is in engagement with siteplease elements 110, 112, with a limited slip, but to the direction of movement of the banknote could still be completely changed by a non-slip portion 106 that provides the possibility of issuing it back through the hole 30 for receiving banknotes in the case where it is determined that the note is not genuine. This distinctive feature allows you to use in the described embodiment, a standard commercially available compact device authentication of banknotes, which often contain non-slip drive mechanism and the sensor verifying the authenticity of banknotes.

Although in the shown example of a variant embodiment of the invention, the tool 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for the reception usually contains non-slip portion 106 and a portion 108 has a limited slip, in other embodiments of the invention, these parts may be missing, depending on the type of device 58 authentication of banknotes. Below is a detailed description of an example implementation of this option. In addition, despite the fact that, essentially, non-slip portion 106 is depicted as a set of cooperating rollers, and a portion 108 has a limited slip, depicted in the form of means of transport, consisting of tape and the role of the s, other embodiments of the invention may contain other types of interacting moving parts that operate in such a way that the movement of banknotes desirable way.

Next to a traffic channel 92 is located selectivity of the device 114. Selectivity of the device 114 operates in such a way that provides selective transmission of banknotes in a given direction and allows you to skip the banknote through the tool 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for the reception or via the tool 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance. As shown in more detail in figures 9 and 11, the selectivity of the device 114 contains selectivity element 116 mounted in such a way that ensured the possibility of its rotation. Selectivity element 116 includes a curved guide surface 118 that is adjacent to the bandwidth of the channel 92. In that case, when the guide surface 118 is located below the position shown in Fig.9, and the control mechanism is carried out in such a way as to provide the movement of banknotes out through channel 92, moved out banknotes come in contact with the guide surface 118, and directed into engagement with the tape 102 and the guide roller means 104 96 transportation bills to the opening of the La of their issuance. In this position, the tool 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance transports the banknote in the outward direction to the hole for the issuance of banknotes 28. Similarly, when you move notes tool 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for reception to transmission channel 92 guide surface 118 move up in the receiving position, which is shown in Fig.9. In this position allowed the passage of the banknotes transported by means 98 transporting banknotes from the holes for them in the channel 92.

Next to the selectivity of the device 114 is located a guiding device 120, usually placed between the hole 98 for receiving banknotes and hole 96 to issue banknotes. The routing device 120 includes a rotating guide rollers 122 and serves as a support for them. The guide roller 122 is usually included into engagement with the tape 110 and rotates with it. The routing device 120 and the guide rollers 122 additionally facilitate the passage of bills through the channel 92 by the method described below. On the side opposite in relation to the guiding device 120, channel 92 is also limited to a separating element 124. Separating element 124, a more detailed description of which is also shown below, is engaged with a surface the capacity of the tape 110, which serves as a moving element of an arc shape, in the region located above the support roller 126 of the tape. On the opposite end of the separating element 124 in a region located above the support roller 128, which is attached to the module 44 for storing the banknote separating element 124 is also in engagement with the blade 70. Canvas 70 serves as a moving element arcuate shape as it moves over the roller 128 in contact with the separating element 124.

As shown in figure 11, the selectivity of the device 114 is moved from a position of acceptance, which is a position in which the banknotes received in the channel 92 of the tool 98 transporting banknotes from the holes for them in the feeding position in a predetermined direction in which the banknote passing out through the channel 92, is sent to the tool 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance by the transmitting mechanism with a limited slip, indicated as a whole by the position 130. The mechanism 130 transmission with limited slip from the above example of a variant embodiment of the invention contains the slipper element 132. The slipper element 132 is a small, relatively slippery tape or similar gear element, obespechitelnye force, which can be used to move the selectivity of element 116 in the desired position with the subsequent slippage in response to movement from a mechanical drive without causing damage to itself or other connecting parts. In the described embodiment, which are given by way of example, the slipper element 132 is connected to the pulley 134, which when working injected into engagement with the selectivity of element 116. The slipper element 132 is also connected with a pulley 136, which is connected to the roller 138, supporting a belt means 102 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance. The constraints indicated in the diagram by the position number 140, limit the angle selectivity of element 116.

In the case when the tool 96 transportation bills to the hole to issue them in motion in such a way as to provide the movement of banknotes of the transmission channel 92 to the outside, the tape 102 is moved in the direction indicated by the arrow "O". This moves the guide surface 118 selectivity of element 116 down until selectivity element 116 will not come into contact with the stopper 140, which limits its counter-clockwise rotation. Since in this position the tape 110 is moved in the direction of arrow "N", banknotes passing through p is lowering the channel 92, come into contact with the guide surface 118, which is in the feeding position in a given direction, and move it so that it engages with the tape 102 is moved in the outward direction. The movement of the tape 102 is moved in the outward direction, continue up until controls its movement in this direction in response to a signal from the controller 52. However, as soon as the selectivity of the element 116 reaches the limiter, the slipper element 132 begins to slip relative to at least one of the pulleys 134 or 136. This ensures the retention selectivity of element 116 in the feeding position in a given direction, but does not lead to further displacement or damage of any sites.

From 11 and Fig it is clear that in the case when the tool 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for the reception moves the tape 110 in the direction opposite to the direction indicated by the arrow "N", for the supply of banknotes in the channel 92, the tape 102 are set in motion so that it is moved in the direction opposite to the arrow "O". This movement causes the roller 138 causes the rotation of the pulleys 136 and 134, whereby provide rotation selectivity of element 116. Selectivity of the element 116 is rotated in a direction which, which is shown on the drawing as the clockwise direction to the position which the receiving position, in which rotation of the selectivity of element 116 clockwise stop by entering into contact with one of the limiters 140. After moving the selectivity of element 116 in the receiving position the slipper element 132 begins to slip relative to at least one of the pulleys without causing damage to any of the nodes. In this position, floating inside of a banknote, a carrier and a support to which the tape 110 may pass by selectivity of element 116 and achieve throughput of the channel 92.

Although in this described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, the selectivity of the device 114 contains selectivity element 116, the movement of which is produced by the same mechanism drives and tapes 102 and 110, in other embodiments of the invention can be used other mechanisms for moving the selectivity of the device, including separate actuating mechanisms. In alternative embodiments of the invention can be used passive selectivity elements that allow you to skip the banknotes inside due to deviations or translational displacement is the selectivity of the item by themselves banknotes. Due to its design such passive selectivity elements can engage with banknotes that move outward, and guide them so that they come into engagement with the corresponding mechanisms by which the movement of banknotes outside. In embodiments implementing the present invention can be used in different configurations selectivity, and elements that provide the movement of banknotes. Moreover, it is clear that although there has been described a single tape, ensure that the movement of banknotes in the means of transportation of holes for receiving banknotes and into the hole for the issuance of banknotes, other embodiments of the invention can contain many parallel moving belts, rollers or other mechanisms move the banknotes, which function in such a way that the movement of banknotes in the described directions.

This design allows to manage the relative angular displacement portion 162, which is a pointed edge at the point 164 changing the amount of material fabrics, located in the reel 66 for storing banknotes, during operation of the ATM. is what very limited movement provides a more reliable separation and direction of banknotes when removing banknotes from the lock spool 66 for storing banknotes and when they receive it. In addition, this design minimizes the wear of the material of the canvas by maintaining the desired position of the part 162, representing a pointed edge to the fabric 70.

As shown in Figure 10, the deflecting surface 166 is typically located such that it flows along the opposite sides of the rolling element 168 is perpendicular to it. In some suitable embodiments, the implementation of the mobile element 168 may contain many moving parts, located across the web 70. The deflecting surface 166 may be designed in such a way that placed in the gaps between moving elements 168. In addition, the guide surface 120 is also located in the intervals available in deflecting surfaces 166. Install perpendicular to the deflecting surface 166 between the movable element 168 and the guide surfaces 120 provides relative impact surfaces with relative mobility, which facilitates the direction of banknotes through the channel 92. It should also be noted that the use of the separating elements 160 and 124 included into contact with opposite sides of the web 70, usually helps to avoid uneven wear of the blade 70 and uneven growth stresses along its surfaces. This drug is do with the design and orientation of the separating elements 124 and 160, provides greater durability of the blade 70.

In the described embodiment, which is shown as an example, module 44 for storing notes, detailed description of which is given below, contains the mechanism for receiving and issuing of banknotes, denoted in figure 4 as a unit position 77. This mechanism 77 receiving and issuing of banknotes contain, respectively, a bobbin 66 for storing banknotes and receiving a bobbin 68. Canvas 70 passes between the rolls 66 and 68, the roller 128, the movable element 168, which is in engagement with the blade 70 in bandwidth channel 92, and the separating element 160, which provides separation of the banknotes from the blade 70 and the direction in channel 92 and out of it. If this describes the version of the implementation, which are given by way of example, the mechanism 72 of the drive spool operates in such a way that by the propulsion coils 66, 68 provides for the filing of banknotes in channel 92 and their reception of him. It should be noted that in alternative embodiments of the invention next to a traffic channel 92 may be several mechanisms for loading and unloading of banknotes of various types, providing for the issuance of banknotes clients or banknotes from clients.

Described here are suitable transport mechanisms are shown only as examples and not only at the Ute is only one of many types of mechanisms, which can be used. Module 44 for storing banknotes of the described variants of implementation, which are given by way of example, is appropriate, because this module design can be used in combination with many types of transport mechanisms banknotes, including very cheap mechanisms that are suitable for installation in ATMs, which have other types of basic functions. This allows you to upgrade the capabilities of such ATMs for cash withdrawals, providing them with appropriate mechanisms connecting the channel with one or more outlets available to the client. In addition, the module 44 for storing banknotes can be easily removed by authorized personnel from the inner region of the ATM 10. Therefore, for example, in the variant of its use for fuel dispensers for motor fuel, the system operator can easily remove the module 44 of the dispensers for motor fuel for the period of non-working time and store it in a safe place.

Can be fast removal and re-installation of such items, which minimizes the actions that must be performed by personnel of the enterprise.

The control mechanism 77 receiving and issuing of banknotes, finding the gosia module 44 for storing banknotes, implementing mechanism 72 of the drive spool. The mechanism 72 of the drive spool operates in such a way that provides selective control rotation of the reel 66 for storing banknotes and receiving bobbin 68. By controlling the rotation of the spools 66 and 68 may be provided for holding banknotes on canvas 70 and stored on the reel 66 for storing banknotes. Similarly, by controlling the rotation of the spools 66 and 68 may be provided with a supply of banknotes stored on the reel 66 for storing banknotes in channel 92.

The mechanism 72 of the drive spools of options for implementation, which are given by way of example, contains a motor or other actuator, indicated on the Figure 4 position 178. The operation of the actuator 178 and the direction of its rotation is carried out in response to signals from the controller 52, after installing the module 44 for storing banknotes in the ATM 10. The actuator 178 operates in such a way that ensures the rotation of the first drive element 180 about the axis 179 of rotation, as shown in Fig.6. In the described example, the case for the first drive element 180 is executed in the form of a gear transmission. However, in other embodiments of the invention can be used shafts, belts or other transmission elements efforts.

The first drive element 180 operates in such a way that ensures the rotation of the second drive element 182. In the described embodiment, which are given by way of example, the second drive element 182, able to rotate, is connected with the transfer element 184, shown in Fig.7, while the transfer element 184 can rotate around the axis 179 of rotation of the first drive element 180. The second drive element 182 is rotated around the axis 185 of rotation, which moves together with the drive element 184. There is no doubt that in other embodiments, implementation of the present invention can be used in other constructions of the drive.

7 schematically shows that the first braking element 186 in the work connected with the second driving element 182. The first braking element 186 operates in such a way that provides the application to the second drive element 182 forces that impede its movement. In a preferred embodiment, the first braking element 186 provides a Supplement to the second drive element 182 forces, preventing its movement in either direction of rotation. The first braking element 186 may contain thrust washer, friction plate, sleeve, or other suitable item, provide limited and controlled degree of resistance to movement of the second drive element 182. The first braking element 186 operates in such a way that during the rotation of the first drive elem the NTA 180 in a clockwise direction, shown in Fig.7, the resistance force applied by the first braking element 186, also tends to force transmission element 184 to rotate together with the second driving element 182 in a clockwise direction. However, in the case where the rotation transmission element 184 in a clockwise direction is stopped, for example, due to engagement of the second drive element 182 with surface 192, the transmitting torque of the second drive element 182 in response to rotation of the first drive element 180, rotates in the counterclockwise direction. Similarly, rotation of the first drive element 182 in a counterclockwise direction causes movement of the transfer element and the second driving element 182 counterclockwise until until the second drive element 182 will not come into engagement with the surface 190, the transmitting torque, then the second drive element 182 will rotate in a clockwise direction. It should be borne in mind that these design options are shown only as examples and that can be used intermediate the drive elements and other mechanisms that provide the same result.

As shown in Fig.7, the mechanism 72 of the drive spool further comprises a braking element transfer mechanism. The braking element 188 of the transfer mechanism operates in such a way that ensures the application of a limited resistance to rotation of the gear element 184. When working this limited resistance to rotation is provided by a limited and controlled resistance to movement of the transfer element 184. Besides it, in General, provides for the retention of the transfer element 184 in the current position until, until his deliberate move, due to the rotation of the first drive element 180. The braking element 188 of the transmission mechanism may include thrust washer, friction plate, sleeve, or other suitable device providing the application the resistance forces opposing the movement of the transfer element 184.

As shown in Fig.6, the rotation of the first drive element 180 in a counterclockwise direction provides movement of the transmission element and the second driving element 182 in a counterclockwise direction into the position in which the second drive element 182 is engaged with the receiving bobbin 68 surface 190, the transmitting torque. In a preferred embodiment, the surface 190 receiving spool 68, the transmitting torque, contains gear teeth, is made in such a way that provide timing sacale the s with gear teeth, which is provided with a second drive element 182. However, it is clear that in other embodiments of the invention can be used other surfaces which transmit torque, suitable for receiving power transmitted through the mechanism 72 of the drive spool. As shown in Fig.6, the second drive element 182 operates in such a way that provides the rotation of the receiving spool 68 in the counterclockwise direction. This causes movement of the blade 70 in the direction of issuing banknotes, indicated in the drawing by the arrows superimposed on canvas 70. When working mechanism 72 of the drive spool in such a way that it drives the receiving bobbin 68, bobbin 66 for storing banknotes rotates in a counterclockwise direction, as shown in the drawing, sativa her canvas 70 and providing a supply held therein banknotes in channel 92.

On Fig shows the functioning of the mechanism 72 of the drive coils when moving the blade 70 in the direction of the banknotes. The direction of the banknotes is a direction in which to move the canvas with 70 held therein banknotes, which is wound on the roll in the area for storing banknotes on the reel 66 for storing banknotes. The rotation of the first drive element 180 in the clockwise direction shown in Fig rotates watts who was driving element 182 in a clockwise direction relative to the first drive element until while the second drive element 182 will not come into engagement with the surface 192, the transmitting torque, located on the bobbin 66 for storing banknotes. When the second drive element 182 is engaged with surface 192, the transmitting torque of the second drive element 182 starts to rotate in the counterclockwise direction and causes the bobbin 66 for storing banknotes in rotation in the clockwise direction. The rotation of the reel 66 for storing banknotes in a clockwise direction causes the winding cloth 70 and retained therein banknotes on a bobbin 66 for storing banknotes in the form of fabric 70 through which to keep them. As the winding cloth 70 on a bobbin for storage of banknotes 66 is unwinding cloth with 70 receiving spool 68.

The braking mechanisms 186 and 188 located on the transmission element 184, and the first drive element 180, ensures that the second drive element 182 will remain in steady contact with the desired surface 190 or 192, the transmitting torque available, respectively, in the receiving bobbin 68 or in the reel 66 for storing banknotes, during their movement. Moreover, with reference to Figure 4, it should be noted that in the preferred embodiment, the surface 192, the transmitting torque of the reel 66 for storing banknotes contains C BYA gear, paired with the gear teeth of the second drive element 182 with which they are engaged. These mated gear teeth can also form mutually siteplease protrusions and recesses 78 which, as shown in figure 4, allow you to hold a bobbin 66 for storing banknotes through the locking element 76 in the same position in the case, when the module 44 for storing banknotes removed from the housing 12.

To facilitate control of the rotational movement of the spool 66 for storing banknotes and the receiving spool 68 module 44 for storing banknotes provides a mechanism for application controlled braking effort. An example of this mechanism is application controlled braking effort is schematically depicted in Fig. Bobbin 66 for storing banknotes provided with an annular brake surface 194. As shown in the drawing, around the annular brake surface 194 is braking element 196 directional, covering the angle, in General, more than 180 degrees. The braking element 196 directional has a first end 198 and a second end 200, which, in General, are fixedly mounted relative to the housing 12 through the storage unit to the banknote 44.

The braking element 196 directional contains part 202, which is a tape. Tape 202 is typically located such that engages with the annular brake surface 194 a reel 66 for storing banknotes. In addition, the braking element 196 directional contains tensile part, schematically indicated by the position number 204. As shown in Fig, tensile portion 204 contains elastic displacing portion which is expansible in the direction of arrow "E".

In the case where it is desirable to move the canvas 70 in the direction of the banknotes, the mechanism 72 of the drive spool operates in such a way that provides the rotation of the reel 66 for storing banknotes in a clockwise direction with the winding of the blade 70 and retained therein banknotes on a bobbin 66 for storing banknotes. When the movement of the spool 66 for storing banknotes in a clockwise direction tensile portion 204 tends to be stretched in the direction of arrow "E", what is her reaction to the force applied to part 202, which is a tape, and is caused by the relative movement of the annular brake surface 194. This makes it relatively easy to provide rotation of the reel 66 for storing banknotes in a clockwise direction due to the reaction force applied to the elastic portion 204. However, in the case where rotation of the reel 66 for storing banknotes occurs due to response to motion of the blade 70 in a counterclockwise direction, which corresponds to the movement of the blade 70 in the direction of issuing banknotes, weather resistance is the movement of the spool 66 for storing banknotes are relatively higher. This is because the tension of the tape 202 is higher, due to the lack of tensile portion 204 between the tape 202 and the first end 198. As a result, during the rotation of the reel 66 for storing banknotes in a counterclockwise direction occurs relatively greater tension of the tape 202. It provides your application with a relatively high braking force to the reel 66 for storing banknotes, which minimizes the risk of "jumping the gun" reel forward by inertia.

In this embodiment, which is shown as an example, to ensure the application of braking effort to the receiving bobbin 68 use a similar design, but with a reversed arrangement. As described above, in this embodiment of the invention the reception coil 68 is identical to the reel 66 for storing banknotes and contains therein an annular brake surface 206. The braking element 208 directional contains the tape 210, which engages with the annular braking surface 206 at an angle of, in General, greater than 180 degrees. The first end 212 and second end 214 of the retarding element 208 directional, in General, are fixedly mounted relative to the housing. The braking element 208 directional contains tensile portion 216 located in the Lisi second end 214. Tensile portion 216 is tensile in the direction indicated by the arrow "X".

In the case when the mechanism 72 of the drive spool operates in such a way that produces the rotation of the receiving spool 68 in the counterclockwise direction, by moving the blade 70 in the direction of issuing banknotes, tensile portion 216 of the retarding element 208 is stretched, thus providing a relatively low resistance to movement of the receiving spool 68. However, when the rotation of the receiving spool 68 in the clockwise direction in response to movement of the blade 70 in the direction of the banknotes receiving bobbin 68 is applied a relatively high braking force.

As a result of the braking element 208 directional operation of the described embodiment of the implementation, which are given by way of example, the braking force on the reel 66 or 68, driven by the second driving element 182 is relatively lower. This provides a reduction of the necessary amount of effort that must be established mechanism 72 of the drive spool to actuate the receiving spool 68 and spool 66 for storing banknotes. This has the advantage compared to systems in which the braking elements have the same effects on the reel 66 and 68 regardless of EmOC is Alenia their movement.

And again with reference to Figure 5 canvas 70, located between the coil 66 for storing banknotes and receiving the coil 68, passes through the path of the moving blade. The path of movement of the blade passes near a traffic channel 92, and in this place a support for the blade 70 is a roller 128. In addition, the path of movement of the blade contains two guide rollers 218 and 220, which send canvas 70 along the path of movement of the leaf to the receiving bobbin 68. Near the path of movement of the blade between the guide rollers 218 and 220 is the sensor 222 provisions of the canvas. During operation, the sensor 222 provisions of cloth connected to the controller 52, and operates in such a way that performs detection of machine readable characters 230, which is provided with a cloth 70.

On Fig shows the plot canvas 70 according to a variant embodiment of the invention, which is shown as an example. The canvas contains 70 region 224, ensuring the engagement of banknotes, in its center relative to the transverse direction. When working region 224, ensuring engagement of banknotes, is engaged with banknotes that are in the bandwidth of the channel 92, and holds them up as a support for the banknotes stored in the reel 66 for storing banknotes.

Outside region 224, ensuring the engagement of banknotes, when seen in a transverse direction, raspolozenija peripheral region 226 and 228. Peripheral region 226 and 228 are, when seen in a transverse direction, on both sides of the blade 70 near its lateral edges. Peripheral region 226 and 228 contain fulfilled in them machine readable marks 230. In the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example machine readable marks 230 are printed on canvas 70 characters, preventing the passage of radiation through them. The presence of these obstacles to the passage of radiation recorded by a sensor 222 provisions of the canvas. There is no doubt that in other embodiments of the invention can be used and other types of marks that can be seen or read by a sensor.

As described above, the opposite ends of the blade 70 are connected, respectively, with the reception coil 68 and the coil 66 for storing banknotes. In the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example machine readable marks 230 is designed in such a way that correspond to a specific location on the canvas, 70 relative to its end. In the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example machine readable marks 230 are arranged on the canvas, 70 and symmetrically designed so that the distance between adjacent marks 230 decreases as PR who got closer to each of the ends. This design is used in the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, allows you to set the canvas 70 in any of four possible orientations. Therefore, the person performing the replacement blade 70, no need to worry that it may be installed incorrectly. This is due to the symmetry of machine readable characters 230 located in peripheral regions 226 and 228, as well as the reduction of distance between mashinosteroyenie marks 230 as it approaches the end.

When the ATM sensor 222 position of the blade operates in such a way that provides storage of data by the controller 52 in the storage 56 data showing the location of machine readable characters 230 in the vicinity of the sensor 222 provisions of the canvas. In the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, these data may contain data about the reference number of machine readable marks 230, passed by the sensor from its original position near the first end of the blade 70 in the area of the first end, located next to the reception coil 68. By memorizing these data readout can be provided that the operation of the controller 52, which it determines the relative position of the blade 70 relative to the th ends. In addition or in the alternative, the controller 52 can also save the data representing the count of the number of banknotes stored in the current time in the reel 66 for storing banknotes, for which she serves as a carrier. This is the number of banknotes can be set in accordance with a machine readable marks 230 so that the controller 52 compares the location information obtained by means of machine readable characters 230, data corresponding to the number of banknotes in the repository.

Alternatively, the presence of decreasing the distance between mashinosteroyenie marks 230 as it approaches the ends of the blade 70 provides the ability to detect a condition indicating the approach of the blade 70 to the first end or the second end, through the controller 52 of the described embodiment of the implementation, which is shown as an example. This allows the controller 52 to provide a signal transmission performed by the communication device 48, or by other device to output data indicating that the ATM or close to the state in which he is no longer able to maintain the insertion into it of the banknote, or close to the state in which exhausted the stock of banknotes. For example, when issuing one of the banknote should be is respecto moving the blade 70 at a distance of a few more than the length of the banknote. In that case, if you move the blade 70 at this distance when dispensing banknotes sensor 222 provisions paintings registers the passage of such a large number of machine readable characters 230, executed on canvas 70, which exceeds their number, the controller 52 may decide that the painting 70 approaches its second end, meaning that the reel 66 for storing banknotes left little notes. By obtaining data on the number of machine readable characters 230, passed by the sensor 222 position of the blade when dispensing one banknote or a sheet, the controller 52 has, in General, accurate information about how close this time sheet is 70 against the state, which reached its end, meaning that the reel 66 for storing banknotes no longer remains stored therein banknotes.

Similarly, when the operation of banknotes mechanism 72 of the actuator moves the spool canvas 70 by a distance in the General case, a little more than the length of one of the banknote. In that case, if in the process of receiving the banknote sensor 222 provisions paintings registers is the number of machine readable characters 230, passed by the sensor 222 provisions of fabric that exceeds the specified number, the controller 52 may decide that the cloth 70 is priblijaetsa to the first end, at which reception of the bobbin 68 is no longer able to accommodate the material of the canvas. Due to the availability of data on the number of machine readable characters 230, passed by the sensor 222 position of the blade when the receive operation of the banknote, the controller 52 operates in such a manner that defines a relatively precise position of the blade 70. This allows through the controller 52 and the work connected to a storage device 56 defining and displaying data on the remaining quantity, showing that it is necessary replenishment of the ATM 10, stating that the ATM 10 is full, and/or that a certain amount of banknotes to be removed from ATM / cash machine 10 within a specified period of time. However, the ATM 10 is able to perform this even in the event of loss or destruction of the information about the exact location of the blade 70 stored in the storage part of the device 56, and a more detailed description of this below.

In alternative embodiments of the invention canvas 70 may be marked such mashinosteroyenie marks 230 that uniquely identifies the relative position of the blade 70. They may include, for example, machine readable marks 230, through which display a sequence of numbers. By reading such machine readable characters 230 through the your one or more sensors 222 may be provided for the operation of the controller 52 thus, he defines the position of the blade 70 and generates signals corresponding to the States that due to the fact that the cloth 70 is in a particular position.

Description of example of how in one of the embodiments of the invention, which are given by way of example, may be provided with its functioning so that he is in charge of issuing banknotes and counting the number of remaining notes are Fig. In the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, the issuance of banknotes is performed in response to the operation input client data entered via one or more input devices. These operations may include, for example, the operation bandwidth of the card 18 client that contains information about the relevant Bank account of the client, through the device 16 card reader. In that case, if the card 18 is a debit card, the customer may also enter a personal identification number (PIN) by pressing the keypad 20. Thereafter, the customer may indicate that he wishes to withdraw cash from the account and may enter the amount of money to be withdrawn and received in the form of banknotes, by entering data through the function keys 22 and/or keys of keypad 20. In the described embodiment of the invention, to the which are given by way of example, the controller 52 operates in such a way that in response to these entered data provides the control device 48 connected to via communication with another computer system to determine whether the client is authorized to withdraw from the Bank account of the requested funds. Assuming that the client has the authority to withdraw funds from the Bank account, the device 48 receives from the host computer or from another connected system a message indicating that the requested client cash withdrawals are permitted. Then, the controller 52 controls the mechanism 72 of the drive spool in such a way that provides the rotation of the receiving spool 68 in the direction shown. This leads to rotation of the reel 66 for storing banknotes shown in the drawing direction. Rotation 66 bobbins for storing banknotes provides a separation of the banknotes from the blade 70 and their movement in a channel 92 for banknotes.

As shown in Fig, in the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, next to a traffic channel 92 is the sensor 232 transmission channel. During operation, the sensor 232 passage connected to the controller 52, and operates in such a way that registers the presence of banknotes in bandwidth channel. The sensor 232 passing functions t is thus, registering the front edge of the banknote received in the channel 92. The controller 52 operates in such a way that in response to the sensor signal 232 passing controls the actuator 62 of a vehicle, providing a management tool 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance. The tool 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance functions in such a way that moves the attached banknotes to the hole 28 to issue banknotes. This moving means 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance also causes the movement of interacting with the selectivity of the device 114 in the feeding position in a given direction, providing the movement of banknotes so that they come into engagement with the tool 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance. In the described construction the tool 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance and part 108 has a limited slip available in the tool 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for their reception, move in cooperation with each other so that the movement of banknotes of the transmission channel 92 and engages with the tool 98 transport the banknotes to the hole for their issuance.

The mechanism 72 of the drive spool moves polot the 70 in the direction of issuing banknotes as long until the registration of the end of the banknote passing by the sensor 232 passing. The tool 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance moves the banknote passing by the sensor 232 passes, the hole 28 to issue banknotes, which are issued to the client. In the drawing this is shown by the banknote 234. Bill 234, which is in the hole 28 to issue banknotes, can remain in the tray, or may be secured by its retention by any other suitable clamping until then, until it is fetched by the client. Alternatively near the hole 28 to issue banknotes can be located proper sensor connected to the controller 52, which functions in such a way that the banknote remains held in the stopped vehicle 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance until such time as the customer is not physically pull her out of the hole. Can be used in a variety of technical solutions banknotes, depending on the characteristics and purpose of the ATM.

Can be implemented in the delivery of not only one, but many banknotes. The controller 52 controls the mechanism 72 of the drive spool in such a way that provides for the issuance of additional banknotes through channel 92 and their delivery to the client by means of 6 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance. When the number of banknotes issued corresponds to the data entered by the client, the controller 52 operates so that the stops as the mechanism 72 of the drive coils, and means 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance.

During the operation of issuing banknotes from the reel 66 for storing banknotes sensor 232 passing registers of each banknote. The sensor 232 passing can be a sensor for registration of radiation that is able to perceive both the front edge and the rear edge of the banknote. In other embodiments of the invention, of course, can be used sensors passing other types. By moving the blade 70 when applying one or more banknotes in channel 92 sensor 222 provisions of the canvas gives the controller 52 corresponding signals. The controller 52 in response to the registration of machine readable characters 230 by a sensor 222 provisions of the canvas provides the generation of signals. These signals contain information by which display the number of banknotes. In some embodiments of the invention, these data may represent, for example, a simple reference, which corresponds to the length of the blade 70, remaining on the bobbin 66 for storing banknotes. Because banknotes are usually located at the same distance od is and from the other, these data count display the number of remaining bills. This data can be stored in the storage device 56 as a condition caused by an amount which corresponds to the number of remaining notes.

In other embodiments of the invention can be used an alternative in which the sensor 222 position of the blade can function in such a way that registers the number of machine readable characters 230, passing by the sensor 222 position of the blade when moving the banknote through the channel 92 and registered by the sensor passage 232. The number of machine readable characters 230, passed by the sensor 222 position of the blade when issuing one of the banknote, may be correlated with distance from a point near the sensor, until the end of the blade 70. The controller 52 may be programmed so that in response to the registration by a sensor 222 position of the blade during the operation of issuing one banknote such a large number of these machine readable marks 230, which exceeds the specified value, performs the displaying status information, due to the number of proving the need to refill the ATM 10 banknotes.

In addition to the use of printed on canvas 70 of machine readable characters 230 obtained for the I data displays the number of remaining bills, the controller 52 may also function in such a way that provides storage in the storage device 56 actual data readout or data reflecting the amount of money. Therefore, the controller 52 may function in such a way that it always contains information about the number of banknotes stored in the ATM 10. This provides the client the opportunity to determine the number of remaining bills by issuing a query to a controller 52.

In that case, when the controller 52 of the type described is a violation of the data on the remaining number of banknotes stored in the volatile memory storage device 56, the controller 52 may exercise such control by the ATM, which ensures that they are data recovery operation by determining the number of remaining bills. Executable programs necessary to perform the repair operation data may be stored in non-volatile storage so that the ATM 10 could almost always to perform a recovery operation data regardless of the state in which it is located. When performing a data recovery operation, the controller 52 in response to the loss of data in the storage device, operated the t mechanism 72 of the drive spool so that makes it possible to wind the blade 70 on a bobbin 66 for storing banknotes. The mechanism 72 of the drive spool continues winding the fabric on a bobbin 70 66 for storing banknotes until then, until you are registered area of the first end located near the end of the blade 70, attached to the receiving bobbin 68. This can be done in several ways, for example by sensor 222 provisions of the canvas specified number of machine readable characters 230 residing on canvas 70, for a specified period of time, the controller 52 determines through the use of device 54 generating clock pulses.

Once through the controller 52 is determined that the cloth 70 is wound on a bobbin 66 for storing banknotes, essentially entirely, the controller 52 controls the mechanism 72 of the drive spool in such a way that he begins to move the canvas 70 from the reel 66 for storing banknotes in the receiving bobbin 68. Because the mechanism 72 of the drive spool is running controller 52 to perform this operation, the controller 52 performs the generation of signals in response to the registration of machine readable characters 230 by a sensor 222 provisions of the canvas. These signals show how far advanced canvas 70 at any given time. The process of winding cloth 70 enrollment is the Aubin stop 68 at the moment when the sensor passage 232 registers the first banknote received in the channel 92. At this time, the controller 52 operates in such a way that implement the generation of additional signal, which corresponds to the location on the canvas, 70, where registered first bill. Because the storage of banknotes is usually carried out in such a way that the distance between them is the same, the resulting generating an additional signal indicative of the remaining number of banknotes held by the blade 70 on the reel 66 for storing banknotes. This allows to ensure, through the controller 52 is almost the exact determination of the number of banknotes remaining in the storage. After this mechanism 240 of the receiving and issuing of banknotes can continue your further work using data on the number of banknotes obtained when performing a data recovery operation. Of course, this is only one example of the operation of the ATM in relation to the described embodiment of the invention, which is shown as an example. In other embodiments of the invention can be used in other technical solutions that calculate and determine the number of banknotes that are in the store at any given time of the straps. For example, in cases where by every one of machine readable characters 230 located on the canvas, 70, clearly stated the position of the canvas, is a possible option, in which to determine the position of the blade 70 by the controller 52 is sufficient to move the canvas 70 only until the next machine readable token 230.

Below is a description of the operation of the ATM 10 in receive mode banknotes with reference to Fig, 19, 20. To enable input of banknotes in the ATM 10 may require operation of the relevant data by an authorized user through the input device data. To perform this operation may require special cards or codes, which the staff uses to replenish the stock of bills in the ATM 10. Alternatively, as was described in Figure 1, the body 12 of the ATM 10 may include physical protective device, which can perform only authorized personnel, and which can input notes in a hole 30 for receiving banknotes provided only for such staff. In an alternative embodiment, the hole 30 for receiving banknotes can be positioned relative to the housing 12 so that access thereto may exercise, in General, only authorized personnel. Finally, in kotoryj embodiments, the invention provides the possibility of input of cash into the hole 30 for receiving banknotes, and obtain cash through the hole 28 to issue banknotes. Specific customer actions that may be required to enable input of banknotes in a cash machine 10 through the opening 30 for receiving banknotes, depend on the concrete implementation of ATM and programming of the controller 52.

In receive mode banknotes banknote inserted through the hole 30 for receiving banknotes, gets on the tool 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for their reception. In the tool 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for receiving the banknote first enters a non-slip portion 106 funds 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for the reception, next to which is located the device 58 authentication of banknotes. The device 58 authentication of banknotes contains the sensors, whereby recognize whether or not the inserted banknote is genuine banknotes suitable for its reception by the ATM 10. For example, in this embodiment of the invention, the device 58 authentication of banknotes may have such a configuration that provides only accept banknotes in denominations of twenty dollars and does not accept any other inserted banknotes as unfit for the ATM 10. During operation, the controller 52 is connected to the device 58 authentication of banknotes, and the movement of the banknote, with amatice marked position 236, inside this device is implemented by a non-slip portion 106. Non-slip portion 106 may be an integral part of the device 58 authentication of banknotes or in other embodiments, the implementation can be a part of the ATM 10, which is embedded in the device 58 authentication of banknotes. As shown in Fig, bill 236 may be of non-slip portion 106 in the portion 108 has a limited slip, which set in motion by the actuator 100 of a vehicle, making it move in the specified direction. Part 108 has a limited slip, is engaged with bill 236, but you can move it forward and back through the non-slip portion 106. In the case where it is determined that bill 236 is unsuitable, non-slip portion 106 may display bill 236 out of engagement with the portion 108 has a limited slip, and move it back out through a hole 30 for receiving banknotes. However, if it is determined that bill 236 is suitable, non-slip portion 106 releases the bill 236, releasing it in part 108 has a limited slip, which moves held her bill 236 in channel 92.

In the described embodiment, izaberete the Oia, which are given by way of example, the actuated part 108 has a limited slip, and means 96 transportation bills to the hole to issue them implement a common drive mechanism. As a result, the moving part 108 has a limited slip, shown in the drawing direction also causes the moving means 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance, which provides the rotation of the selectivity of the device 114 in the receiving position of the banknote. This results in moving the banknote 236 in channel 92, as shown in Fig. When bill comes to bandwidth 92, it is registered by a sensor 232 passing.

The controller 52 operates in such a way that in response to the registration of the banknote 236 by a sensor 232 passing actuates the mechanism 72 of the drive spool. The controller 52 operates in such a way that provides control of the movement of the blade 70 in the direction of the banknotes, as shown in Fig. The mechanism 72 of the actuator moves the spool canvas 70 so that the banknote 236 included in the connection and kept on it, and it is wound on a bobbin 66 for storing banknotes. The controller 52 continues to manage the movement mechanism 72 of the drive spools up until the e will be registered trailing edge of the banknote 236, passing by the sensor passage 232. After that, the controller 52 may control mechanism 72 of the drive spool thereby to move the bill 236 by a distance sufficient to ensure a certain interval with respect to the following inserted banknote. After moving the inserted banknotes 236 in a bobbin 66 for storing banknotes at a sufficient distance, executed by the controller 52, the mechanism 72 of the drive spool to stop until the controller 52 will not give the command to further his move.

Although in this first described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, non-slip portion 106 adjacent to the device 58 authentication of banknotes, functions in such a way that immediately pushes the banknote identified as unsuitable, in alternative embodiments, the implementation can be ensured otherwise their operation through appropriate programming. For example, the controller 52 may be programmed in such a way that moves the banknote 236 in the tool 98 transporting banknotes from the hole for the reception which is located after the device 58 authentication of banknotes. In that case, if by device 58 authentication recognized that the banknote is the tsya unacceptable, bill 236 can be stopped in crossing the channel 92 after passing through the rear edge of the banknote 236 through the selectivity of the device 114. After that, the controller 52 may function in such a way that provides a change of direction means 96 and 98 of transportation, and this leads to the fact that the selectivity of the device 114 sends bill 236 outwardly through the opening 28 to issue banknotes. To ensure this, the controller 52 may operate as a means 98 for transporting banknotes from the hole for their reception, and the tool 96 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance, and the drive mechanism means for storing banknotes. These operations may include, for example, the operation of partial or temporary retention unacceptable banknotes 236 in contact with the fabric 70 until then, unless there is a change in the direction of movement of the banknote 236 on the back for feeding banknotes 236 out. It should be understood that these options are only given as examples and that other embodiments of the invention the emission of rejected banknotes 236 may be provided otherwise.

Alternative implementation can be performed with other types of authentication mechanisms. On Fig shows an alternative mechanism for loading and unloading of banknotes, hereafter is obtained as a whole by the position 238. The mechanism 238 loading and unloading of banknotes, in essence, is similar to the mechanism, except for those signs which are specifically mentioned. It contains a mechanism 240 of the receiving and issuing of banknotes, similar to the mechanism 77. The mechanism 238 loading and unloading of banknotes further comprises joint means 242 transporting banknotes from the hole for their reception, and to the hole for their issuance. The tool 242 transporting banknotes from the hole for their reception, and to the hole for their issuance functions in such a way that provides selective movement of banknotes in the channel 244 and out. Next to the tool 242 transportation are the sensors 246 banknotes. The sensors 246 banknotes can function in this way to determine the authenticity of banknotes, for example, whether the banknote passing through the tool 242 transportation, genuine banknotes in denominations of twenty dollars. An example of a suitable sensor banknotes described in U.S. patent No. 5923413, which are given as references. In other embodiments, the implement may be used commercially available device authentication of banknotes, for example, the device 58 authentication of banknotes, with appropriate adjustments to provide additional opportunities, which often have such vending device is STV.

In that case, if the banknote recognized as genuine, can be done moving it means 242 transportation through the selectivity of the device 248 in place to store, located on the bobbin 250 for storing banknotes. Similarly, if necessary, to carry out the issuance of banknotes from the reel 250 for storing banknotes canvas 254, holding notes in connection with the coil 250 for storing banknotes, for which she serves as a carrier, can move a bill in the channel 244. The actuator (not shown) moves the selectivity of the device 248 in such a way that it sends the bill to the tool 242 transportation, with which it engages. After that, the tool 242 transportation result in movement in the direction which transfer banknotes from the transmission channel 244 to the hole for the issuance of banknotes, located near the end of the tool 242 transportation.

In that case, if the controller mechanism 52 238 loading and unloading of banknotes in a manner that registers banknotes, which are injected into the ATM 10, and the sensors 246 banknotes in a manner that supports the existence of unacceptable banknotes, can be made an immediate change of direction means 242 transportation on the return for the release of the banknote. Alternative options the ante in the case if ejection of the banknote out of the ATM 10 is undesirable, the banknote can be moved by means of 242 transport in the channel 244. Also can be implemented in a variant of the partial movement of the banknote on canvas 254, if it is necessary for the operation of the ATM 10. Then, after moving the banknotes in the area 258 for storing the position of the selectivity of the device 248 can be changed, and the controller 52 may be actuated means 256 transport rejected banknotes. The tool 256 transport rejected banknotes functions in such a way that moves the banknote inside region 258 for storage inside the housing 12 of the ATM 10. As a result of this suspicious banknotes remain inside the housing 12 of the ATM 10 as long as they will not be removed by authorized personnel.

The advantage of the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, with reference to the mechanism 238 loading and unloading of banknotes is that can be used a single means of transportation as a means of transporting banknotes from the hole for their reception, and as a means to transport the banknotes to the hole for their issuance. This leads to advantages in some embodiments done by the means, in which determine the authenticity of banknotes in a single path of travel of the banknotes selectively moved in opposite directions.

On Fig shows an alternative mechanism for loading and unloading of banknotes, designated as a whole by the position number 260. Mechanism 260 loading and unloading of banknotes similar to the first mechanism 64 loading and unloading of banknotes, which is described above, except for those signs which are specifically mentioned. Mechanism 260 loading and unloading of banknotes includes a tool 262 transport the banknotes to the hole for their issuance, passing between bandwidth channel hole 264 and 266 to issue banknotes. In addition, the mechanism 260 includes a hole 268 for receiving banknotes. Hole 268 for receiving banknotes passes through the wall of the housing of the ATM 10, which, in General, is located opposite the housing wall in which the opening 266 to issue banknotes. The inlet 268 when working communicates with the device 270 authentication of banknotes, which may be a device of the above type. The device 270 authentication of banknotes is connected with the first section 272 of a vehicle with limited slip, and with the second section means 274 transportation. Sections 272 and 274 transportation facilities are in place about what atom, what moves the bills that have passed through the device 270 authentication of banknotes, channel 264.

The mechanism 260 is essentially similar to the operation of such mechanism from the first described embodiment of the invention, which is shown as an example. However, the advantage of the construction shown in Fig, is that the person responsible for the operation of the ATM 10, can load cash into the ATM 10 with its rear side. Some embodiments of the invention, which are given by way of example, can be performed with a sufficiently small size that allows their fastening on the upper surface of the counter service or standard internal wall of the building. This allows the person responsible for the operation of the ATM 10, feeding the banknotes in the ATM 10 to the rear side of the counter or from the interior of the building. It can provide relief boot bills in the ATM 10, because when loading banknotes person responsible for the operation of the ATM, don't want to block the access of personnel to the ATM 10 that may prevent the use of the ATM 10 clients. In addition, this arrangement eliminates the need for the roof of the or other devices closing the hole 268 for receiving banknotes, which hinder the attempts to introduce objects into the hole 268 for receiving banknotes confused customers. For specialists in the art it is obvious there are additional advantages of this alternative construction, shown in Fig.

On Fig shows another variant implementation of the mechanism for loading and unloading of banknotes, designated as a whole by the position number 276. In the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example and contains the above module 44 for storing banknotes, the alternative mechanism 276 loading and unloading of banknotes operates in combination with mechanism 77 receiving and issuing of banknotes of the first variant embodiment of the invention. The mechanism 276 loading and unloading of banknotes functions in such a way that eliminates the need for input by the client, essentially, one bill at a time to save it inside the ATM.

The mechanism 276 loading and unloading of banknotes includes a tool 278 transportation bills to the hole for their issuance, which is located between a traffic channel hole 280 and 282 to issue banknotes. Next to a traffic channel 280 is located selectivity device 284, functioning as described above. The tool 286 transportation of banknotes of the hole for receiving includes a first portion 288, adjacent to the device 290 authentication of banknotes. The second part 292 of the means of transport is located between the device 290 authentication of banknotes and bandwidth channel 280.

Next to the device 290 authentication of banknotes, which can represent, for example, the device described above, usually is the separation mechanism of banknotes, designated as a whole by the position 294. The mechanism 294 separation of banknotes functions in such a way that separates the individual banknotes from the stack 296 and delivers the individual banknotes in the device 290 authentication of banknotes. Next to the mechanism 294 separation of the banknotes is the sensor 298 thickness of the banknote. Sensor 298 thickness of the banknote functions in such a way that registers the presence of a situation in which extracted from a pack of more than one banknote. In the case of registration of more than one banknote retrieved from the stack, the device 290 authentication of banknotes, the controller 52 operates in such a way that changes the direction of movement of the banknote on the reverse mechanism 294 separation of the banknotes. Bill moved back into the pack and take the next attempt up until through sensors 298 thickness will not be registered branch of one of the banknote, which is served in the device is istwo 290 authentication of banknotes.

On Fig schematically shows an example of a mechanism 294 separation of the banknotes. The mechanism contains a Central feed roller 300, which is located between the two additional feed rollers 302 that serve as supports for the tapes. The rotation of the feed rollers 300 and 302 provide by means of the actuator, schematically indicated by the position 304. Selective operation of the actuator 304 is carried out in response to signals from the controller 52.

Next to the feed rollers 300 and 302, essentially, on the contrary they are the contact between the roller 306 and two contactless separating roller 308. The rollers 306 and 308 are interconnected by a common shaft, equipped with one-way clutch 310. One-way clutch 310 operates in such a way that creates resistance to the rotation of the rollers 306 and 308 in the direction of movement of banknotes from the stack in the device 290 authentication of banknotes. However, the one-way clutch 310 allows the rollers 306 and 308 are easy to rotate, in the General case, in the direction of movement of banknotes from the device 290 authentication of banknotes in the stack. In that case, when the actuator 304 drives the rollers 300 and 302 in such a way that they provide movement of the banknote at the bottom of the stack 296, the device 290 authentication of banknotes, both rollers 306 and 308 provide resistance to movement of the banknote. This is usually pragotrade the move all notes, except for the first banknotes, located at the bottom of the stack past the sensors 298 in part 288 transportation, adjacent to the device 290 authentication of banknotes. However, if the sensors 298 register the passage of many bills, extracted from the stack, the controller 52 operates so that changes the direction of movement of the actuator 304 on the back. In this situation, the rollers 306, 308, 300 and 302 interact in such a way that make it easy to move the banknotes back into the stack.

As shown in Fig, in the above described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, a packet of 296 may be placed in the field 312, which produce the dismantling of the stack inside the housing 12 of the ATM 10. Access control in the region 312, which produce the dismantling of the stack can be provided via the door, schematically indicated by the position number 314. In the described embodiment, the mechanism depicted in Fig, the person responsible for the operation of the ATM, you are allowed to put the banknotes in the region 312, which produce the dismantling of the stack and then close and lock the door 314. After that, the ATM 10 may function in such a way that divides the stack into individual banknotes, providing verification of their authenticity, and saves the suitable Bank is the notes in the reel for storage, in the United with him module 44 for storing banknotes. In that case, if in the process of recognition of banknotes detected the presence of unacceptable banknotes, unacceptable banknotes can be directed through selectivity device 284 a means 278 transportation, which can place these banknotes in the area near the hole 282 to issue banknotes. In alternative embodiments of the invention may provide other areas for storage of unacceptable banknotes. In other alternative embodiments of the invention may provide the ability to interrupt a running ATM transaction authentication of banknotes and stacking them in a bundle for a client that wants to use the 10 ATM for cash withdrawal. Example of the mechanism of separation of banknotes that can be used in the variants of implementation of the present invention described in U.S. patent No. 6109522, which are given as references. Of course, specialists in this field of technology can be created and other alternative designs and configurations using the principles described here.

As described above, in embodiments implementing the present invention can be used alternative means of customer interaction with the Bank is that. One such alternative embodiments of the invention shown in the drawings with Fig on Fig. An alternative implementation of the present invention contains a device 316 of the display, which in various embodiments of the invention may be a visual display device on the basis of a cathode-ray tube (CRT) or liquid crystal display (LCD) indicator or an output device for visual or non-visual data of a different type. The means of interaction of the client with ATM / cash machine further comprises an input device, including a device 318 card reader, functioning by lowering them in the map, through which the data is read from the card, equipped with a magnetic strip. In addition, the means of customer interaction with the ATM contains a cancel button, indicated by the position number 320. In this simplified embodiment, the means of customer interaction with the ATM controller 52 operates in such a way that enables the display of messages observed by the client on the device screen 316 of the display. These different display data containing pre-programmed text and/or graphic images, called here the contents of the screen. In the case when the ATM 10 is in the standby mode, per the D. the, as the client will work with the ATM 10, the display device 316 display display original contents of the screen, indicated by the position 320 and depicted on Fig. The original contents of the screen 320 includes intended for client's instructions to insert your card into the reader, functioning by lowering it card, and remove the card after displaying on the screen the desired amount of money.

On Fig map shows, schematically indicated by the position 322, representing one of the many cards, equipped with a magnetic strip, which is inserted into the device 318 reading. In response to the insertion of a card 322 and hold the device on the screen display the contents of the first screen that displays the first sum of money, which is indicated by the position number 324. Contents 324 of the screen that displays the first amount of money, the generation of which is carried out in response to a signal from the controller 52, notifies the client about the amount of money and provides advice to the client to retrieve your card from the media card reader in the case, if the amount of money shown on the screen corresponds to the amount of money he wishes to receive. In the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, after approximately five seconds after displaying the first screen content on the screen is avodat second screen content, displaying the second sum of money, which is indicated by the position number 326 and shown in Fig. In the second the contents of the screen displaying the second sum of money, give you a different amount of money and again contains advice customer to remove their card from the media card reader in the case, if the amount of money shown on the screen corresponds to the amount of money he wishes to receive. Assume that during display of the second screen content, displaying a second amount of money the customer has not removed the card from the media card reader. Some time after this (which in this embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, is a few seconds) on the screen display the contents of the third screen displaying a third amount of money. Since in the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, provide dvadtsatimetrovy bills, each sequentially displayed contents of the screen the amount of money increase to twenty dollars. This sequence continues until, until you reach the contents of the screen with the maximum amount of money, or until such time as the customer clicks 320 cancel.

Assuming that the customer removes his card from the device 318 reading at the moment when the screen displayed Commagene, equal to sixty dollars, on screen display content of the screen, indicating the withdrawal indicated, in General, the position number 328 and shown in Fig. Contents 328 of the screen, indicating the withdrawal, notify the client about the amount of money that will be charged to his account. And again assuming that the client does not immediately presses the button 320 cancellation, the controller 52 operates in such a way that by means connected to a communication device 48 communicates with a corresponding host computer or another system to determine whether to allow the client to withdraw the requested amount of money. During this period of time the on screen display content 330 of the screen, indicating the waiting state, which is shown in Fig. After receiving the ATM 10 reports of the confirmation of the Commission, indicating that the client is authorized to receive the requested amount of money, the controller 52 controls the nodes of the ATM 10 in such a way that provides the client the requested amount of money through the hole 28 to issue banknotes available in the housing 12. The controller 52 also functions in such a way that provides the possibility of issuing printed proof of the execution of banking operations. After performing these operations on the screen is e typically display the contents of the screen, indicating completion of the operation, which is indicated by the position 332 and shown in Fig. The contents of the screen, indicating the operation is complete, contains advice customer to pick up their cash and get a receipt. Of course, in cases where for any reason this banking operation is not allowed for the client's on-screen display alternative content screen, notifying the client about it. After that, the controller 52 operates in such a way that provides a return to the original content 320 of the screen.

The advantage of this means of customer interaction with the ATM, which are given by way of example, is that it can be used at ATMs provide cash in response to input data from credit cards, and does not require additional input devices, except for the buttons 320 and cancellation device 318 card reader. These components can be equipped with these types of ATMs, the main function of which is not cash money. This means of interaction facilitates the embedding described here, the mechanism of issuing banknotes in ATMs of other types. In addition, in other embodiments of the invention, the cancel button may be optional, the client can mark the thread executing banking transactions through the card at that point in time, when the screen displays the exact content of the screen. You can think of many alternative embodiments of the invention that use these principles. For example, in alternative embodiments the ATM may be possible to generate audio output signals, which provide the customer with the same information as the contents of the screen display device, and in some cases can eliminate the need for screen display device.

Another useful feature of the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, is the ability of the ATM 10 to display the selected advertising message to the customer at the appropriate time. Such advertising message is displayed within the content 330 of the screen and it shows the discounted price for the goods, representing a drink. In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, the generation of this advertising message is performed in response to data stored in a removable storage device 38, which is connected to the connector 36 located on the housing 12. Data stored in the removable storage device 38, which in the described embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, is a smart card is, contain advertising message, as well as the timing corresponding to the advertising message. Therefore, for example, if the display of special offers, part of the content 330 of the screen, should be done only before a certain date, the controller 52 and the associated device 54 generating clock pulses in a manner that recognizes this date and after this date already do not display a specific advertising message. For example, if the person responsible for the operation of the ATM 10, not time to remove the removable storage device 38, and the controller 52 determines that the display period, the message has expired, the contents of the screen 330 may contain only a blank space or an empty area below the displayed notification "please wait", and ATM / cash machine 10 operates in such a way that handles the authentication and delivery of cash to the client.

Similarly, in a removable storage device 38 may be stored other data, which displays specific advertising messages to a specific time of the day or during specific periods of time. Removable storage device 38 may also contain multiple advertising messages, displaying them for the clients of the ATM 10 is carried out in different points in time or sequentially. Alternatively, data stored in a removable storage device 38 may contain messages of public organizations, such as advertising messages to various charitable organizations and information about what is happening. Data stored in the removable storage device 38 may also provide for the generation of graphical images, and also play other types of video and audio programs that may be of interest to the client. Other data stored in the removable storage device 38 may include, for example, logos or other promotional materials about the organization, which provides operation of the ATM.

As in the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, provided the selective playback of advertisements simply by inserting a smart card into the slot 36, the change of advertising message can be performed outside of the ATM 10 simple and inexpensive way. For example, enterprises engaged in trade or business-sponsors of promotions can provide advertising messages on the smart cards to the persons responsible for the operation of the ATM 10. The person responsible for the operation of the ATM 10 may provide for the insertion of the decree is the R card in the ATM 10, and display messages will occur during the time intervals selected for playback messages. In those times, when by a removable mass storage device 38 shown that these messages show should not display the contents of the screen that contains the messages for the customers of the ATM 10 will not produce. Consequently, providers of advertising messages can prevent the display of their ads after the expiry of their validity period or other periods of time when their display is impractical.

Of course, the ATM may operate in such a way that during his work provides the output of such advertising messages in different moments of time. Such option may be, for example, periodic display of advertising messages instead of the original content 316 of the screen. This operation may include, for example, the alternation of the advertising message with the original content 316 of the screen for relatively short periods of time, for example, with a period of a few seconds. Through this the client approaching the ATM 10, for a very short period of time will be notified about how he should manage the ATM 10. However, before the client starts the operation of introducing his ka is you are 322 in the device 318 card reader, he will also get at least one, and possibly several advertisements. Thus, the described variant of the invention, which are given by way of example, allows those responsible for the operation of the ATM 10, a relatively simple and reliable to conduct additional marketing with minimal cost.

It is obvious that, although the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, a removable storage device 38 contains a smart card, other embodiments of the invention may contain storage devices of other types. They may contain, for example, floppy drives, programmable permanent memory (EPROM), a persistent storage device for compact discs (CD-ROM) or other devices. You should also understand that access to removable storage devices can be limited by a cap, for example by the above-described cover the holes 30 and 268 for receiving banknotes. In this way restrict access to the connector removable storage device 38 or to the reader with him, which is permitted only to those persons who have the authority to replace the removable storage device 38. However, there is no need for this is ICAM, producing replacement of the removable storage device 38, was granted access to store banknotes inside the ATM 10.

In alternative embodiments of the invention the storage device, whereby to provide advertising messages can be programmatically modifiable device and/or may be a device that is remote from the ATM 10. For example, in some embodiments the invention, the advertising message may be stored in a computer on a network owned by the company responsible for the operation of the ATM. The person responsible for the operation of the ATM, can selectively download these messages in the programmable storage device in each ATM 10. After performing this operation, ATM / cash machine 10 displays advertising messages based on the stored information provided by the person responsible for the operation of the ATM. The person responsible for the operation of the ATM, can change the stored information in any specific ATM 10 manually or automatically. This can be accomplished by loading a new advertising information in a storage device available in the ATM 10. In an alternative embodiment, the recollection of advertising material can be carried out in the network belong to IASA firm responsible for the operation of the ATM, and access to it shall be implemented by the controller 52 of the ATM 10 during the execution of banking operations. Thus, the person responsible for the operation of the ATM may provide the chosen advertising messages by passing in the internal communication network to which the ATM 10, connected to the network can access and display them. They may contain, for example, documents in HTML (hypertext markup language) or other elements, the output of which wishes to make the person responsible for the operation of the ATM. In other alternative embodiments of the invention, the ATM 10 may include a communication tool, suitable for providing access to promotional material in other places. It can contain a means of access to the advertising data in the nodes on the Internet or other places, which can be obtained documents in HTML or other documents. The ATM 10 can remember such documents or data in the local storage device to play them customers while working. The ATM 10 may, periodically or on command, to access the new promotional material for storage in memory and subsequent playback during vypolneniyasvoey operations. Of course, in alternative embodiments of the invention can be implemented access to promotional materials stored on the network, and displayed to the client in real time. These embodiments of the invention provide the ability for the person responsible for the operation of the ATM, use the ATM 10 to selectively and timely reproduction of advertising material or other information.

On Fig shows an alternative embodiment of the invention, which is shown as an example.

Install the appropriate outlet selectivity device 456, 458 or 460 in a proper position in response to signals from the controller 52 allows you to enter notes, floating in section 442 means of transporting banknotes from the store, in General, in a downward direction, as shown in the drawing, engages with a selected one of the mechanisms 406, 408, 410 reception and delivery. This allows the selective introduction of banknotes in engagement with a breathtaking rollers 452, available mechanism to ensure its preservation on the reel 444 for storing banknotes, which is part of this mechanism. This operation of the controller 52 of the ATM 403 allows you to save the selected notes selected mechanisms 406, 408 and 410 of the receiving and delivery. Outlet selectivity device 456, 458 and 460 can also be installed in such a position that provides an introduction banknote released from the respective mechanisms 406, 408 and 410, the locking section 442 means of transporting banknotes from the storage. This can be ensured the possibility of transporting banknotes issued through the selectivity of the device 438 and their selective feeding or the second hole 416 for the issue of banknotes or in the first hole 414 DL the issuance of banknotes.

Since the discharge selectivity device 456, 458 and 460, used in the mechanisms 406, 408 and 410 of receiving and issuing banknotes are similar, the following is a detailed description of only the selectivity of the device 458. As shown in Fig, selectivity of the device 458 includes a movable element 462, able to rotate around the axis 464. The movable element 462 able to selectively move in response to exposure of the actuator 466, which, in turn, responds to signals from the controller 52, which control actuator 466, providing the movement of the rolling element 462. Moreover, it has separating element 468, able to rotate around the axis 464. Separating element 468 is shifted such that engages with the canvas 448 and acts like separating element 124 of the above-described variant of the invention, which is shown as an example. Separating element 468 is shifted in a clockwise direction about the axis 464, which provides, in General, constant engagement with the blade 448 and the direction of the banknotes in the capture zone formed by the roller 452 and the canvas 448, located on the reel 470, and from this zone.

In the position of the rolling element 462, shown in Fig, the outer surface 472, forming the boundary of the ne side of the bow 474 rolling element 462, normally located in line with ribbon 435 conveyor, whereby the movement of banknotes near selectivity device 458 as described above. Near the tape 435 conveyor with its opposite sides are interactive guides 443, providing the ability to move the banknotes. Interactive guides contain recesses 476 performed in the area of the rolling element 462 and performing the function, the description of which is given below. As shown in Fig when the movable element 462 is shown in the drawing, in section 442 means of transporting banknotes from the storage is provided to move the banknote 478 past the selectivity of the device 458. In the result, the banknotes emerging from other mechanisms and transported to the outlet, or the banknotes received in the machine from the inlet and moves in below area for storage, can pass selectrows device 458.

As shown in Fig, the movable element 462 moved due to the impact of the actuator 466, moved in a counterclockwise direction relative to the position that is shown in Fig and Fig. In this position, the nose portion 474 is in deepening 476 guides 443. It is clear, Thu is shown in the embodiment of the invention, the nose portion 474, in the General case, is part of a forked shape, passing on both sides of the moving belt 435 conveyor. Bow 474 also includes arcuate surface 480, coming from the bow 474. In the position of the rolling element 462, which is shown in the drawing, the arcuate surface 480 is designed in such a way that provides the direction of the banknotes in section 442 means of transporting banknotes from the repository and from this site, and a capture zone formed breathtaking roller 452 and the canvas 448.

As shown in Fig, bill 482 may be moved through the selectivity of the device 458 or in the direction of the storage area or out of it. Roaming bill 482 is in engagement with the arcuate surface 480, available on the movable element 462 and the movable element 462 and separating element 468 direct it so that it moves between plot 442 means of transporting banknotes from the storage and storage area available in the mechanism.

It is obvious that the design discharge selectivity of the device is shown only as an example and that other variants of the invention can be used in other variants of the design discharge selectivity devices and means of transport of banknotes. They may include, for example, the discharge selectors is yousie devices and means of transportation, described in any other place of this description. It is also worth mentioning that although the described variant of the invention, which are given by way of example, contains the tape, and means for transporting a lip, other embodiments of the invention can contain a vehicle other types. They may include, for example, means of transportation in the form of paired rollers or belt type, means of transportation ribbon and rollers and means of transport of banknotes of other types. In some embodiments of the invention may be particularly suitable for the way in which they contain the means of transportation with opposing rollers in which one roller in each pair is more easily deformable than the other. For example, in such embodiments of the invention despite the fact that both roller is usually made of elastic material, one roller of the pair can be covered with foamed material, or contain within its periphery other suitable material that provides an easier deformation. The variant with the presence of such an easily deformable material may be particularly suitable for providing pressure control on the banknote when implementing a vehicle with a limited slip, is AutoRAE may be desirable in applications of the invention. The existence of such opportunities limited slip can be especially useful in areas that are located next to the selectivity of devices which provide a strong hold banknotes when the output of the mechanism for issuing. The front end of the banknote can be up to site transportation of banknotes from the storage, while the rear end of the banknote is still firmly fixed in the capture zone. The existence of such opportunities limited slip prevent the formation of gaps or otherwise damaged banknotes in such situations. Of course, by controlling the characteristics of elements, moving a bill, you can implement many types of transport mechanisms with a limited slip, and a particular method may depend on the configuration of a specific mechanism, as well as the type and characteristics of banknotes processed in the ATM.

On Fig and Fig shows the design used in the embodiment, the ATM 403, which are given by way of example, prevent attempts by clients to insert foreign objects into the ATM 403. It is clear that children or people who are trying to harm you might try entering of foreign objects into the second outlet port 416, from which you are issuing banknotes. Although such inserted pre what meth can sometimes be tools, intended for robbery, and so on, a more common situation is one in which people try to insert pieces of cardboard in the form of banknotes, soft containers or other articles. While the holes for the issuance of banknotes can be provided with latches or other mechanisms suitable to prevent the insertion of such foreign matter, the inclusion of such mechanisms and the corresponding control equipment in the composition of the ATM may lead to an increase in its value.

On Fig and Fig schematically expedient way to prevent entering of foreign objects by including in the composition of the ATM device in the form of rails, limiting the entry of foreign objects. On Fig shows the device in the form of rollers, located next to the second hole 416 for issuing banknotes available ATM. Next to the second hole 416 for issuing banknotes is a roller 484, which serves as a support for the movable tape 486 transportation. It is obvious that the tape 486 and roller 484 operate in such a way that the movement of banknotes from 434 transportation bills to the hole to issue them out to the second hole 416 for issuing banknotes. In the shown embodiment of the invention opposite the roller 484 PR is the secure roller 488. From the opposite lateral sides relative to the rollers 484 and 498 are two guides 490 for banknotes, located so that the lower part of the tape 486 conveyor passes between the guide along them. The movement of banknotes, which is shown in the drawing in the form of banknotes 492, provide by engagement with the underside of the tape 486 conveyor passing between the guide 490.

In the region adjacent to the second opening 416 to issue banknotes, the height of the guides 490 slightly increased. This increases the amount of bending of the banknote 492 cross-section in the form of a wave as it moves to the second hole 416 for issuing banknotes. This provides an additional advantage in that by creating such a wave bending in cross section to increase the rigidity of the banknote 492. This contributes to the fact that the bill probably will pass from the rollers 484 and 488 directly out through the second hole 416 for issuing banknotes. Guides 490 increased height also made up of vertical blunt end 494. In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, the end 494 generally perpendicular to the direction of movement of the banknote and shifted slightly inward towards the axis of rotation of the rollers 484 and 488.

In the case when one tries to insert unknot, a piece of steel, cardboard, plastic or other prohibited item inside through the second hole 416 for the issuance of banknotes, the first attempt will be to prevent counter rollers 484 and 488. In that case, if people will be able to push the subject past the rollers 484 and 488, this item will come in contact with the front surface 494 guides 490. The presence of such contact, in General, will prevent any attempt to further move this foreign object inside. In addition, the presence of the flat engagement of the subject with rollers 484, 488, and the height of the guides 490 hinders the promotion of this object, bypassing the blunt end 494 and passing it inside.

Although in the shown example, the blunt end 494 runs essentially perpendicular to the direction of movement of the banknote, in other embodiments of the invention can be used with other options for the layout. For example, in some embodiments, the appropriate design may be a variant, in which the blunt end 494 is made sloping, which provides the deviation of the inserted object down and entering it into contact with a support surface on which is fixed guides 490. Such action of the inclined surface can help prevent entry of foreign objects and to provide additional strength to the design is the construction, preventing entry of foreign objects. Of course, these design options are shown only as examples, and in other embodiments of the invention can be used other ways of preventing entry of foreign objects. It should be understood that although in this embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, guides 490 is used for the second hole 416 for issuing banknotes, in other embodiments of the invention similar guides can be used for other holes to issue banknotes.

Although described an implementation option ATM, which are given by way of example, contains three mechanisms of reception and delivery of banknotes, other embodiments of the invention may contain a different number of such mechanisms. In addition, the mechanism described here is just one of several possible types of storage mechanisms and/or the issuance of banknotes, which may be provided with embodiments of the present invention to provide storage and distribution of banknotes. You should also understand, despite the fact that the ATM 403 depicted in Fig and Pig without cap 336, containing the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for merchants and consumers, these above tools is shimodate can be used in variants of the implementation of the ATM 403.

On Fig shows an example of a standalone ATM 496. ATM 496 may be used to perform a business/client banking transactions, such as cash transactions. On Fig tool 498 interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders, which is located on the rear surface of ATM 496, shown in the open form. The means of interaction with ATM / cash machine designed for consumers, is located near the front side of the ATM 496. Also shown the door and the locking mechanism for the section 504 representing the mailbox. With the side intended for traders, ATM / cash machine 496 provided with a hole 500 for cash and hole 502 to receive cash.

The designation of "merchant" and "consumer" are given only as examples and are typical, but not limiting. Tools 498 interaction with ATM, intended for traders, provide, in General, broader access to the contents of the ATM 496, than the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine designed for consumers. This arrangement may be appropriate to ensure appropriate levels of access for merchants and consumers. There may also be situations in which this arrangement may be appropriate to ensure appropriate levels of access for different categories is s trading servants. For example, this arrangement may be useful to provide a broader level of access to management personnel who has been granted the right to use the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders than for cashiers who may be granted access only through the side intended for consumers.

On Fig shows an example of the ATM 506 placed in a through hole in the wall, which can be located so that it passes through the wall. This arrangement can be used when it is desirable that the tool 508 interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders, was on one side of the wall, and the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine designed for consumers, was on the other side of the wall. This drawing shows the tool 508 interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders located at the rear of the ATM 506. The means of interaction with ATM / cash machine designed for consumers, is located on the front of the ATM 506. Also shown the door 510 and locking mechanism 512 to part 514, which looks like a box. In each of the ATMs 496 and 506, which are shown in Fig and Fig, can be used with the mechanisms of storage and issuance of banknotes from Fig or have their other suitable design. Obviously, ATMs, such as those shown in Fig and 56, the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders, can also be located inside an ATM in the same way as it was described in the description of the ATM shown on Fig. In an alternative embodiment, the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for merchants, ATM / cash machine of any type may be installed on a locked door hatch, which can be used to provide access to the interior of the upper half of the ATM.

In other embodiments of the invention, which are given by way of example, customers can use an ATM not only for cash but also for purchases by transferring funds to the merchant's account. Customers can also use the cash to order goods, such as food products, and to transfer funds to the merchant's account in payment for the purchase. In addition, the customer may be issued a printed certificate of payment, receipt or similar document confirming the transfer of funds to the merchant's account. A certificate of payment can then be used for making purchases or to obtain goods or services from the merchant or a subsidiary.

When RA is h ATM, which are given by way of example, from a client trader may need to enter information via one or more input devices. In the example method of operation of the ATM 10, the layout of which is shown in Fig to implement client-targowica access the tool 352 interaction with ATM, intended for merchants located in the cap 336, he must first open the locking mechanism 364 to open the door 362 hatch. Then from a client trader may have to pass through a reader with maps map containing information about the account, the appropriate commercial activities. In addition, from a client trader may need to enter a personal identification number by pressing the keypad. Then the client can be instructed through a series of prompts or questions. The controller 52 operates in such a way that in response to data entered by the client determines whether to allow the client to work with ATM / cash machine 10 and/or to Deposit or retrieve the requested amount of money. In some embodiments of the invention, this operation can be performed on the basis of the data stored in the local storage device of the ATM 10. Alternatively, to check the meet if the customer is a merchant the right to work with the ATM 10, the controller 52 may communicate with a remote computer system via the communications device.

In that case, if it is determined that the client is a merchant has the right to work with the ATM 10, the controller 52 in accordance with its functions so that issues the client is a merchant one or more messages hints via the output device of the data available in the tool 352 interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders. In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, these messages contain a request that the customer is a merchant entered evidence about whether he wants to withdraw cash from an ATM or to make cash. If the client is a merchant enters through input devices available in the tool 352 interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders, evidence of his desire to make money, in this case, the output device provides the customer with a prompt to enter cash through hole 342 for receiving banknotes designed for traders. As described above, this can be done by entering one banknote at a time, or in those embodiments of the invention, which can handle a bundle of bills in the ATM 10 m which may be entered by the whole pack. During the execution of a customer-merchant transaction input of cash, the controller 52 controls the output device of the data available in the tool 352 interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders, so that the client was instructed to enter additional evidence that he completed the operation of cash. In alternative embodiments of the invention, the controller 52 may function in such a way that provides the output current amount on the screen of the output device data to estimate the amount of money entered by the customer is a merchant. Therefore, as the passage of bills through the device 588 authentication of banknotes and checks total amount of money displayed on the screen means 352 interaction with ATM, intended for traders increases.

As of banknotes by the ATM 10, the controller 52 manages the means of transportation and mechanisms of reception and delivery of banknotes thus, to ensure the direction of the banknotes in the appropriate mechanism for their storage. The management of the mechanisms of reception and delivery of banknotes carried out so that on receipt of bills to ensure that they are maintained in areas 348 and 350 for storing banknotes. Banknotes that are wrong is usable or not recognised, can be returned to the client-dealer or directed in the field 370 for missed notes in accordance with the program of the controller 52.

In ATMs, having a construction similar to that shown in Fig, unrecognized banknotes can be stored in the selected area for storing banknotes of one of the mechanisms 406, 408 or 410 of receiving and issuing banknotes. In addition or alternatively, an unidentified banknotes can be stored in the mechanism 406 408 or 410 of receiving and issuing of banknotes, which is designed for banknotes of different denominations, are not reusable in the ATM 403.

Upon completion of the customer-merchant transaction input banknotes client is a merchant may specify that the transaction is completed by entering data using the 352 interaction with ATM, intended for traders. In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, the controller 52 then operates in such a way that enables the printing of receipts for the customer-merchant. This receipt may contain the total amount of money and can be used by the client-retailer as evidence of making money. Embodiments of the invention may contain a program that provides the client, the dealer will complete the school information which can be valuable for the business of the merchant. It can contain, for example, the name of a particular client is a merchant, the owner of the card and/or personal identification number (PIN)that is used to provide access to the ATM 10. The information contained in the receipt, in addition to the total amount of inserted money, can also contain a number of bills introduced each individual type and their value. The receipt may also contain other information such as the characteristics of any of the unacceptable bills that were introduced, the time in which was made the contribution, the number and/or denominations of banknotes that were in the ATM 10 to and/or in it after completing banking transactions, or any other information which may be useful for commercial activities of the merchant.

Printed receipt may be delivered to the customer is a merchant through an appropriate transport mechanism. It may contain, for example, means of transport and the mechanism of selectivity devices that provide delivery receipts through the housing 12 of the ATM 10 in the case when the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders, is out of the ATM 10. Alternatively, in the case where the ATMs are designed to be similar to that shown in Fig, delivery receipts to the client trader may be carried out inside the cap 336.

After the customer-merchant operations investing him through messages, the output of which is routed through the tool 352 interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders, display a hint that he indicated whether he wants to perform other banking transaction. Such banking transactions can be, including additional deposits or cash withdrawal from the ATM 10. Assuming that the client is a merchant performs data entry, evidence of his unwillingness to make additional banking operations, the controller 52 performs the management of the ATM 10, which provides the end of the session, and ATM / cash machine 10 is now ready for use by consumers or other customers-traders. In that embodiment of the invention of the ATM 10 in which the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders, is located in the inner part of the ATM 10, the client-dealer also must close the door used for access to the means of interaction. Protection against unauthorized access can also be achieved by locking the door of the castle. It protects the first means of interaction from dirt and from the other pollutants, which can be in the environment of commercial enterprise. It was found that the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders, which is located within the ATM 10, are particularly well suited for use in conditions of fast-food establishments and other conditions in which contaminants, airborne or otherwise, can concentrate and, ultimately, hinder the proper functioning of the means of interaction with ATM, intended for traders.

Embodiments of the invention, which are given by way of example, can be used by customers, dealers and also to obtain cash for the business of the merchant. The client is a merchant can perform this operation by accessing the ATM as described above, for example, through the use of cards and personal identification numbers. In that case, if the ATM is an ATM / cash machine of this type, in which the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders, is located inside the ATM, to gain access to the device card reader, keypad and other input devices and output the client-dealer must open the ATM. After the ATM produced Ident the qualification of the client and defined, he is an authorized user, the client-merchant give hints, which requested to enter information about the type of banking operations. Alternatively, such hints can be displayed after the customer-merchant made a previous Bank operation. In that case, if the client is a trader enters a request for withdrawal of funds from the account, the controller manages the ATM so that provides output appropriate messages. In response to these messages, the client is a merchant may specify the amount of money that he wants to withdraw from the account.

In some embodiments of the invention, the controller may operate in such a way that provides the client-merchant message, in which the client is asked to specify the number and denomination of banknotes, which it wishes to receive. It may be important to the customer-merchant who need to get from the ATM banknotes of the specific denomination to ensure the effectiveness of its commercial activities, such as money for rent. In embodiments implementing the present invention can be implemented in various ways to provide customers-merchants information on possible options to withdraw money from the account provided by programming of the controller, which controls what funkcionisanje ATM.

In response to the input by the customer-merchant data corresponding to the amount of money and/or the types and number of banknotes, which it wishes to receive, the controller performs control of ATM in such a way that ensures delivery of the requested bills through the hole to issue banknotes designed for traders. The controller performs control of the respective mechanisms of reception and delivery of banknotes, means of transportation, selectivity devices and other mechanisms in such a way as to direct the banknote to the customer-merchant. After delivery of banknotes client-trader can pick them up for use in commercial activities. After dispensing ATM may issue to the customer-merchant receipt, stating the amount of funds, the types of banknotes and other information related to banking operations, withdraw money from the account, and/or information on the status of the ATM. The client is a merchant can use the receipt for tracking cash in commercial operations, as well as to test the operation of the ATM. Of course, the controller can also function in such a way that provides the client-merchant information about the possible options of additional banking operations. A client trader may enter data through which the n asks to perform such additional banking operations, or you may enter data indicating the end of the session, which ends the session with the ATM. As described above, in those embodiments of the invention, in which the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine, designed for traders inside the ATM, at the conclusion of merchant banking, he usually has to close and/or lock the door.

Although in the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, authorizing execution by the merchant banking operations carried out using the data encoded on the card, and a corresponding personal identification number (PIN)may be used and other methods of authorization of the client-dealer to execute transactions via ATM. They may be, including, for example, use only the card or just the code. In other embodiments of the invention to identify customers-vendors can be used other ways of identifying objects or distinctive signs. They may be, including, for example, the tokens, the reading of which can be done by readers of tokens, or identifying the subject of other types, which can be read through the your cash. Alternatively, the ATM may include a biometric reader, which can read out the distinctive physical characteristics of the customer-merchant. They may be, including, for example, device fingerprint, retina-scan, scanning the iris of the eye, the device recognition of the distinctive features of human face recognition device of the distinctive features of speech, or of any combination of the above devices.

In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, customers, vendors issue a paper receipt of ongoing banking transactions. However, it is clear that in other embodiments of the invention the traders can be provided by other types of documents. They may be, including information about the performed banking transactions stored on the card or through another object. Remembering such data is made banking transactions can be carried out, for example, on the map, equipped with a magnetic strip, or in a storage device on the intellectual map.

Alternatively, clients, merchants can have contactless cards or tokens that are programmed electronically or communicated to Tim way so that provide account information on Bank operations. In embodiments implementing the present invention may be used various ways that provide customers merchants recorded data on banking operations performed by the ATM, which subsequently can be retrieved.

In embodiments of the invention, which are given by way of example, customers, merchants may have different levels of authority, defining the banking operations that they can perform at an ATM. For example, some clients-vendors can be limited only by the input of cash to store them in the ATM. Other clients-vendors can be empowered to impose cash and get cash. For example, in some situations, the person responsible for the operation of the ATM in the enterprise may wish to have the possibility of receiving cash was provided only management personnel, which these cash money may be required to replenish the cash registers or other utilization of the money received from the ATM, in their commercial activities. Alternatively or in addition, can be provided with additional levels of authority, depending on any specific who's circumstances and characteristics of the ATM. For example, if there are ATMs, similar to that shown in Fig store which banknotes, reuse, which do not produce, access to dispensing banknotes of a specific storage area may be provided only management personnel with authority to unload banknotes from an ATM. This access may be permitted, for example, only to those employees managers who are responsible for the investment of funds on Deposit. In cases like this this employee when working with ATM / cash machine can be provided with additional information about possible options for discharging banknotes that are in those areas for storage, which stores the banknotes that are not intended for reuse. In addition, in those alternative embodiments of the invention, which is produced storage of banknotes of various denominations, providing levels of authority can be implemented in such a way that some authorized trading employees may be entitled to receive banknotes only certain denominations, while others can have access to the banknotes of higher denominations. It is clear that restrictions on the right of receiving the money may also be imposed through on the underlying programming of the controller, in the ATM, or related systems. Through such programming may be limited to the amount of money issued by the trading officer, and may also be limited by the amount of cash issued for any period of time during the sequential execution of banking operations. Such controlled access and possible ways to perform banking operations can be implemented through multiple ways, depending on the business needs and design used ATM.

It is also clear that in embodiments of the invention, which are given by way of example, may be provided for recording data on all Bank transactions and save them in the data store. The recorded data about the banking transactions can be stored in the ATM and/or may be stored in a remote storage device associated with the other computers, which communicate with the ATM through the communication device. This allows the person responsible for the operation of the ATM, to analyze banking transactions made via ATM. In addition, it provides the client-trader the opportunity to compare the recorded data on trade transactions obtained through receipts in the form of a solid is s copies data about the operation of the ATM provided in electronic form. Can also be used in a variety of ways to perform test and balance work ATM to provide accounting banking and money when conducting business.

It is clear that in embodiments of the invention, which are given by way of example, the ability to work with a cash machine is also provided to consumers. Consumers manage cash using the interaction with ATM / cash machine designed for consumers, which contains input and output. For example, the user can enter this card to the card reader, which provides the input data, including the account number of the consumer. Similarly, the user can enter his personal identification number (PIN) or your Bank account number, which is used to verify that the consumer has the right to use the Bank account corresponding to the map.

After that, the controller operates such that in response to data entered by user determines whether the consumer is entitled to withdraw cash from the account and get it from the ATM. This is usually performed by a controller that establishes a connection with the remote computer via the communication device. The means of interaction with ATM / cash machine designed for consumers that also functions in such a way that in response to received from the controller a request that the user indicated by the data entered using the input devices, the amount of money he wishes to receive. The means of interaction may also display to the user a message indicating the additional transaction costs that may be associated with performing the requested banking transaction. Of course, as described above, the user may also be provided, and other information, such as advertisements or information about discounts, promotional goods.

Assuming that the consumer has the right to perform banking operations, the controller performs control mechanism receiving and issuing of banknotes inside the ATM, so that provides delivery to the consumer requested amount of cash. In addition, the controller enables the printing of receipts, which provides the consumer with information about completed transactions. The controller also provides a filing receipt in the means of interaction with ATM / cash machine designed for consumers, through the appropriate selectivity of the device or the transport so about what atom, in order for the consumer to pick up the receipt.

Therefore, in the here described example embodiments of the invention, the ATM may operate in such a way that provide consumers cash in exactly the same way as the ATM type "automatic teller", the merchant provide a device that can be used for storage, retrieval and tracking of cash used in commercial activities. Embodiments of the ATMs, which are given by way of example, also provide a reduction in the need for client access-traders in the inner area of the ATM with the purpose of loading or receiving of them cash. Embodiments of the ATMs, which are given by way of example, give customers the merchants the ability to restrict access to cash, allowing it only for selected employees, and to implement this feature in a way that provides reliable tracking of operations and cash when checking. In other embodiments of the invention provide the customer with the merchant the opportunity for more efficient use of cash, get them in commercial activities, and to profit by providing the merchant at the chance to take part Commission payment for banking operations, which may be charged to consumers for the execution of banking transactions via ATM. In addition, the described examples of embodiments of ATMs may be more suitable for use in the possible presence of contaminants in the environment. Similarly, ATMs, made according to the options of implementing the present invention, which are given as examples, can have many different configurations suitable for performing banking operations of different types.

On Fig shows an example of a cash machine 600, which may contain the above-described mechanisms for receiving, storing and issuing of banknotes. Alternatively, ATM / cash machine 600 may include other types of mechanisms for issuing and/or storage of banknotes, as well as other types of devices designed to perform banking operations. As described above, the cash back cash machine 600 may include a device for receiving and issuing bills to customers-traders.

Alternative embodiments of the invention may also contain passive selectivity devices or such selectivity devices that operate in such a way that change their position in response to movement of the support structures or other mechanisms. It is obvious that demonstrated a variant implementation of the invention are given only as examples, and specialists in this field of technology can be developed in other constructions, which are used as described here distinctive features.

As shown in Fig, narrow passage 662 is limited to the upper rail 714 and lower guide 716. Next to a narrow passage 662 is input sensor 718, the recording taking place in his notes. Guides 714 and 716 also operate in such a way that direct banknotes in item 668, serves as a support for the stack, and out of it. Guides 714, 716, the form of which is given as an example, contain tapering sites located near their ends, facilitating the movement of banknotes passing through them in the proper direction.

Next to the front supporting member 696 is thrilling roller 720. In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, thrilling roller 720 is mounted so that it can sposobnostey, and is biased toward the support element 696, whereby to provide engagement with him. As a result of this thrilling roller 720 is able to rotate together with the supporting member 696 and consistently move together with the flexible element 692, for which he serves as a support. Thrilling roller 720 is in engagement with the lower surface of the banknotes held in the region of 700 holes. Supporting element 696 and thrilling roller 720 form a first capture zone, indicated, in General, the position number 722, which ensures the engagement and movement of banknotes between the region 700 holes and a narrow passage 662.

In addition, the mechanism 654 laying in the stack contains at least one position sensor, schematically indicated by the position number 724. The position sensor 724 operates in such a way that registers the polar coordinate of the at least one position element 668, which serves as a support for a stack. The position sensor 724 may be any of many types of sensors, for example an optical sensor, a mechanical sensor, magnetic sensor, a position sensor on the basis of encoder or sensor of any other type suitable for the registration of polar coordinates, at least one position element that serves as a support for a stack. In the embodiment of the invention, to the which are given by way of example, the position sensor 724 is an optical sensor which detects the initial position of the protrusion 726 shown in Fig. In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, by registering the original position of the protrusion 726 determine the moment when the item 668, serves as a support for the stack is the original or "home" position. Because the controller 52 receives information about that item 668, serves as a support for the stack is in the initial position, the controller 52 may control the actuator 674 way described below and by which the item 668, serves as a support for the stack, and the other nodes in the ATM 600 set in the desired position, allow accumulation and the issuance of banknotes.

Below is a description of the functioning of a variant of implementation of the mechanism 654 laying in a bundle, given by way of example. ATM 600 operates in such a way that reacts, at least some of the input data entered by the client 600 ATM. The controller 52 operates in such a way that in response to at least one input, provides movement of the banknotes to be issued to the client, from regions 626, 628 and 630 to store in tool 650 transport the banknotes to the hole for their issuance, the designation is nomu for consumers. In this embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, the movement of banknotes 660 perform individually and in a plot of 650 means of transport the banknotes to the hole for their issuance, intended for consumers by means of selectivity devices 658 alter their route, allowing them to move in a narrow passage 662 between the guide 714 and 716, as shown on Fig.

As shown in Fig, at the entrance of the banknote 728 in the narrow passage 662 happens, it will register through the input sensor 718. The controller 52, available at ATM 600, operates in such a way that in response to the registration provisions of the banknote includes an actuator 674. The controller 52 operates in such a way that ensures the rotation of the element 668, which serves as a support for a stack in a clockwise direction with the introduction of banknotes 728 in the region of 700 holes. It is clear that the flexible element 692 is engaged with the item 668, serving as a support for a stack near the protruding part 690. As a result, the moving element 668, which serves as a support for a stack, also leads to the displacement of the flexible support element 692. Concerted movement of the flexible element 692 with the item 668, serving as a support for the stack also causes a consistent rotation of the input reference element 696 and exciting roller 720 that provides WTA is ivanie banknotes 728 inside. In the result, they provide a rough banknotes 728 through the capture zone 722 in the region 700 of the hole.

In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, concerted movement of the flexible element 692, in response to movement of the element 668, which serves as a support for a stack, provides greater assurance that the controller 52 can accurately move the banknote 728 and adjust their position. In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, the configuration of the supporting elements 694 along an arc at a distance from each other and having arcuate elongated protruding part 690 provide greater assurance that the flexible element 692 and the item 668, serves as a support for the stack, essentially, will not slip relative to each other. From Fig follows that in the case where the protruding portion 690 is adjacent to the supporting member 694 and location in relation to him inside in the radial direction, the flexible element 692 is in the clamped state between the supporting member 694 and a projecting part 690. This leads to the fact that the flexible element 692 applied radial force, contributing guaranteed no significant slippage on item 668, which serves as a support for the stack.

In addition, in a variant implementation of the ia of the invention, which are given by way of example, the protruding portion 690 is arcuate and elongated, and this ensures that the flexible element 692 is constantly in the clamped state between the protruding part 690 and at least one adjacent support element 694 regardless of the polar coordinates of the position of the item 668, which serves as a support for a stack. In this way provide a rigid engagement of the flexible element 692 item 668, serving as a support for the stack, and push concerted movement of the seat with him. In the following description it is clear that such concerted movement of the flexible element 692 with the item 668, serving as a support for a stack, helps to ensure that banknotes 728, arranged in a stack on the item 668, serves as a support for the stack remain in the stack, generally aligned and essentially have no "steps" in relation to each other, which can lead to the violation of the integrity of bundles or interfere with operation of the mechanism 654 laying in the stack.

As shown in Fig, the rotation element 668, which serves as a support for a stack, rotate the selectivity of the element 702 in the first position, representing the limit position of its movement in the clockwise direction. While in the first position, selectivity element 702 is located so that sposobem the et direction of the banknote 728 through the region 700 holes. While in the first position, selectivity element 702 facilitates direction of the banknote 728 on the bearing surface 730 for tutus available in the item 668, serves as a support for a stack. In this embodiment of the invention bearing surface 730 stack is a curved surface that is located arcuate, as the protruding portion 690. From Fig it is clear that the protruding portion 690 and bearing surface 730 to form packs behind the protruding part 690 region, such expensive, limited supporting surface for the stack and the flexible element 728, which may be entered banknote.

As further movement of the element 668, which serves as a support for a stack in a clockwise direction relative to the positions shown in Fig, bill 728 engages with the flexible element 692 and support surface 730 to pack inside their capture zone, indicated, in General, the position number 732. Then, as shown in Fig, since the flexible element 692 based on the item 668, serves as a support for the stack, and covers it, then as you rotate the item 668, which serves as a support for the stack in the direction of clockwise bill 728, located between the supporting surface of the stack 730 and a flexible element 692, is engaged with them, which makes it an intermediate grip. As shown the and Fig, the rotation of the element 668, which serves as a support for a stack, ultimately, ensures the engagement of the banknote 728 item 668, serving as a support for the stack, essentially along its entire length in the direction of movement.

Item 668, serves as a support for the stack, turn in a clockwise direction until such time as by a sensor 724 is not registered that element 668, serves as a support for the stack has reached its initial position. Upon attainment of this provision, the controller 52 may function in such a way that stops the actuator 674. As a result, item 668, serves as a support for a stack with the logged in engagement with him bill 728 takes the position shown in Fig.

In cases where the client should be granted only one bill, it may be a starting point for the work element laying in a bundle that provides for the issuing of ATM 600 consumer packs, each containing only one bill. However, in most cases in a pack add additional notes, extracted from areas for storage, and then the client is given from the ATM 600 a pack containing a lot of notes.

On Fig and Fig shows how to add additional notes in the stack. After registering through the input sensor 718 additional banknotes,located in a narrow passage 662, located near area 722 capture, the controller 52 actuates the actuator 674. The rotation of the element 668, which serves as a support for a stack provides a rough banknotes marked on Fig position number 734, through the first zone 722 capture. Moving the banknote 734 and item 668, which serves as a support for the stack is consistent, which provides, in essence, proper alignment at the contact of the banknotes 734 with banknotes available in the stack 736. In this embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, this contributes to the fact that the flexible element 692 lead in the movement due to the rotation of the element 668, which serves as a support for the stack, and the fact that the leading edge of the banknote 734 comes to the supporting surface 730 of the stack so that it is essentially aligned with the front edges of the other of the banknotes contained in the pack. It is clear that in this embodiment of the invention selectivity element 702 operates in such a way that provides the Annex to the notes contained in the stack 736, a compressive force when moving the banknotes along the inner surface selectivity element 702. Of course, it should be remembered that in the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, moving selectivity element 702 implement p the means of coupling with a limited slip, that provides the application selectivity element 702 regulated efforts and prevents the application selectivity element 702 excessive force, which may cause misalignment of the banknotes in the stack or other material breach of their packing in the form of bundles.

Further rotation of the element 668, which serves as a support for a stack in a clockwise direction relative to the positions shown in Fig, provides the accession banknote 734 to the stack 736. In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, item 668, serves as a support for a stack continues rotation until then, until you reach the starting position, the registration of which is produced by a sensor 724 provisions. In this position, item 668, serves as a support for the stack, ready to receive additional banknotes fed into the stack 736, or to the issuance packs of 736 the way described below.

When the controller 52 determines that the banknote requested by the consumer, arranged in the form of bundles in the mechanism 654 laying in a stack, the controller 52 operates in such a way that it provides the liberation of the stack 736 out of engagement with the mechanism 634 laying in a pack. To do this, with accumulation of the stack 736 controller 52 provides the rotation element 668, which serves as a support for a stack by means of the actuator 674 in the opposite direction towards the structure of the rotation element 668, employee support package. On Fig shown as pivoting element 668, which serves as a support for a stack in a counterclockwise direction. Rotate item 668, which serves as a support for a stack in a counterclockwise direction will move the stack 736, located in an intermediate state between the element 668 serving as a support for a stack, and a flexible element 692 zone 732 capture, in which the flexible element 692 is engaged with the element serving as a support for the stack.

Because the item 668, serves as a support for a stack, rotates in the counterclockwise direction shown in Fig, selectivity element 702 is rotated in the clockwise direction shown in the drawing position. As you turn selectivity element 702 in this position of the issuance of banknotes inner end selectivity element 702 is included in the arcuate recess 688, located between the rotating element 668, which serves as a support for the stack shown in Fig. In the embodiment of the invention, which are given by way of example, the pistons move selectivity element 702 is limited due to the presence of limiting protrusion 704. By moving the stack 736 through the area 732 capture selectivity element 702 passes under the bottom of the stack, contributing to the direction through the region 70 of the hole.

FIELD: measurement technology.

SUBSTANCE: method can be used for criminal and official inquires of road accidents. Method is based upon measurement of speed of pedestrian and calculation its arithmetical mean. Method differs from known ones, as speed of motion is measured experimentally 10 to 30 times with three different pedestrians having like age and physical condition as victim of run-over. Results are processed as small sample by using central deviations and those deviations are used to determine average meaning of speed of motion, standard deviation, error and truth of the average mean. Upon finding truth of average mean the necessary number of trials is calculated which number has to be compared with real number of trials. Additional trials are conducted if necessary. Factor of truth of experimental data is calculated from speeds of motion of pedestrians taking part in experiment. Probability and factor of confidence is determined accordingly to speed of motion of injured person and speeds of motion of pedestrians involved into experiment, as well as according to truth of preset limit values of this parameter. If values of preset factors correspond to legitimate values or limits admitted for investigation of road accidents, statistically true minimal and maximal values of speed of motion of injured pedestrian are calculated on the base of normal distribution law by means of subtraction the speed from its average value and addition of product of factor of confidence with standard deviation. Limit values of speed of motion of injured pedestrian are presented for forensic examination to make calculations determining availability or lack of availability of prevention of run-over. For this purpose the statistically truthful minimal and maximal values of speed of motion of injured pedestrian should be calculated in relation to accessible values or limits of probability which is higher than 0,95 and if confidence with speed of motion of injured pedestrian and pedestrians involved into experiment correspond to each other. Preset precision of pedestrian's speed of motion should be within limits of +-0,5 km/hour.
