Title (EN) A METHOD OF READING VALUABLE DOCUMENTS; A VALUABLE DOCUMENT; AND DOCUMENT READING MEANS
(FR) PROCEDE POUR LIRE DES DOCUMENTS-VALEURS; DOCUMENT-VALEUR ET DISPOSITIF DE LECTURE DE DOCUMENTS
Abstract:
(EN) A method of reading a valuable document which, in conjunction with its manufacture, has placed on or embodied in the document substratum, such as its paper when applicable, at least one continuous optical fibre (7), the two end surfaces (8, 9) of which are both located at the edge of the document (1). Light-emitting devices are caused to illuminate the first and the second surface of the fibre or fibres, and light-sensitive devices are caused to detect whether or not the end surface of the fibre, or the end surfaces of respective fibres, emits or emit, light when illumination and/or detection takes place at one or more pre-determined locations on the document. The invention also relates to a valuable document having placed on or incorporated in the document substratum, such as paper when appropriate, at least one continuous optical fiber (7), the two end surfaces (8, 9) are both located at the edge of the document (1), each fibre being arranged to conduct light emitted at the first end surface (8) of the fiber to its second end surface (9). The invention also relates to an arrangement for reading valuable documents in accordance with the method.
(FR) Un procédé, permettant de lire un document-valeur, consiste, au moment de sa fabrication, à placer sur le support du document ou à incorporer dans celui-ci, qui peut par exemple être en papier si le document s'y prête, au moins une fibre optique continue (7), dont les deux surfaces d'extrémité (8, 9) sont placées au bord du document (1). Des dispositifs émetteurs de lumière éclairent la première et la seconde surface de la fibre ou des fibres et des dispositifs sensibles à la lumière détectent si la surface d'extrémité de la fibre ou les surfaces d'extrémité des fibres correspondantes émet/tent de la lumière, lors de l'éclairage et/ou de la détection en un ou plusieurs endroit/s prédéterminé/s du document. La présente invention concerne également un document-valeur, dont le support, qui peut par exemple être en papier si le document s'y prête, sert soit à placer soit à incorporer au moins une fibre optique continue (7), dont les deux surfaces d'extrémité (8, 9) sont placées au bord du document (1), chaque fibre étant conductrice de la lumière émise de la première surface d'extrémité (8) à la seconde surface d'extrémité (9) de la fibre. La présente invention concerne également un dispositif pour la lecture de documents-valeurs selon ledit procédé.
