Abstract: front page image
(EN)In a method of providing safe control, storage and transportation of banknotes there is used a closeable cassette (1) provided with locking means, said cassette containing a liquid-dye container (9) which is activated when an attempt is made to force the cassette, thereby to render the banknotes unusable. To prevent a successful robbery against, for example, a store or like place in which banknotes are introduced into the cassette with the aid of a special infeed unit (19, 20), the cassette is constructed so that it can be removably connected to said infeed unit while exposing an infeed opening (16), said infeed unit suitably being provided with a counter means. In conjunction therewith, the associated infeed and packing means of the cassette are inserted into the unit whereupon banknotes can be fed into the cassette. The cassette, with the banknotes therein, is then released from the infeed unit while closing the infeed opening, where after the cassette is transported to a collecting location, e.g. a bank, where an authorized person equipped with a key or a code for the cassette lock (1c) empties the cassette of its contents. The safety function of the cassette includes an electric circuit arranged, when an attempt is made to force the cassette, to ignite a detonator (8) which ruptures the liquid-dye container. The electric safety function is primed automatically when the cassette is closed as it is removed from the infeed unit. The invention also relates to a safety cassette (1) and an infeed unit (19, 20) for carrying out the method.
(FR)Dans un procede sur de controle, d"emmagasinage et de transport de billets de banque on utilise une cassette a fermeture (1) munie de moyens de verrouillage, la dite cassette renfermant un recipient de colorant liquide (9) lequel est active lorsqu"une tentative est faite pour forcer cette cassette, rendant ainsi les billets de banque inutilisables. Pour prevenir un vol contre, par exemple, un magasin ou endroit similaire dans lequel des billets de banque sont introduits dans la cassette a l"aide d"une unite speciale d"alimentation (19, 20), la cassette est construite de maniere a etre assujettie de maniere detachable a la dite unite d"alimentation tout en exposant une ouverture d"alimentation (16), ladite unite etant pourvue de maniere convenable de moyens de comptage. En conjonction avec ceci, les moyens d"alimentation et d"empaquetage de la cassette sont inseres dans l"unite, apres quoi des billets de banque peuvent etre introduits dans la cassette. La cassette avec les billets a l"interieur est alors detachee de l"unite d"alimentation tout en refermant l"ouverture d"alimentation, puis la cassette est transportee vers un emplacement de collecte, p. ex. une banque, ou une personne autorisee munie d"une clef ou d"un code pour la serrure de la cassette (1c), vide la cassette de son contenu. La fonction de surete de la cassette comprend un circuit electrique tel que lorsqu"une tentative est faite pour forcer la cassette, un detonateur (8) est declenche pour briser le recipient de colorant liquide. La fonction de surete electrique est automatiquement amorcee lorsque la cassette est fermee quand on la retire de l"unite d"alimentation. L"invention se rapporte egalement a une cassette de surete (1) et a une unite d"alimentation (19, 20) pour mettre en oeuvre le procede.
