Title: DEVICE AND METHOD FOR DETERMINING THE AMOUNT OF COINS IN A POS CASH DRAWER
Abstract:
The invention pertains to a device and method allowing the amount of coins in a POS (10) cash drawer (10) to be determined. According to the inventive device, a box for a specific coin, which can be inserted into the cash drawer or removed therefrom, is provided with a machine-readable coding (68) and contains box-specific data. The coding can be entered at the same time as the box weight, which can be sensed by a scales-scanner (40), as well as converted, stored and dumped by a data processing unit.
