Title (EN) COIN VALIDATORS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS DE VALIDATION DE PIECES DE MONNAIE
Abstract:
(EN) A coin validator (4) has a sensing arrangement disposed after an accept gate (12) for detecting when a valid coin has moved past, and thus causing the triggering of the accumulation of credit. The sensing arrangement comprises a flap (36) which is moved away from its normal position by the coin. The triggering of credit occurs when the flap moves back to its normal position. If the coin is suspended on a string, the flap cannot move back to its normal position and therefore no credit is accumulated.
(FR) Un dispositif de validation (4) de pièces de monnaie comprend une installation de détection placée après une porte d'acceptation (12) et servant à détecter si une pièce valide est passée devant elle et à déclencher ainsi l'accumulation d'un crédit. L'installation de détection comprend un volet (36) qui est écarté de sa position normale par la pièce. Le déclenchement du crédit s'effectue lorsque le volet reprend sa position normale. Si la pièce est suspendue à un fil, le volet ne peut pas reprendre sa position normale, de sorte qu'aucun crédit n'est accumulé.
