Title: (EN) COIN HANDLING SYSTEM WITH CONTROLLED COIN DISCHARGE
(FR) SYSTEME DE TRI DE PIECES DE MONNAIE AVEC DISPOSITIF DE DISTRIBUTION SELECTIVE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A coin sorter for sorting mixed coins by denomination. The apparatus comprises a rotable disc (13) which has a resilient surface (16) for receiving coins and imparting rotational movement to the coins. A stationary sorting head (12) has a contoured surface spaced slightly away from and generally parallel to the resilient surface of the rotatable disc. The stationary sorting head sorts and discharges coins of different denominations at different exits (350-355) around the periphery of the stationary stationary sorting head. The sorting head includes a separate exit channel for each denomination of coin, and a sensor (S1-S6) for each coin denomination within the exit channel for that denomination. An encoder monitor; the movement of a sensed coin on the rotating disc downstream of the sensors by monitoring the angular movement of the rotating disc. Further, a coin discriminator is used to detect foreign and counterfeit coins and to prevent the detected invalid coins from being discharged with the valid coins.
