Title (EN) CLEANING DEVICE FOR INFORMATION-BEARING CARDS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE NETTOYAGE POUR CARTES-SUPPORTS D'INFORMATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention concerns a cleaning device for information-bearing cards, especially plastic cards with a magnetic strip, data chips or the like. The cleaning device consists essentially of a housing which contains the cleaning element. This housing is provided with bodies which permit the housing to be releasably mounted in a thereto suited holder which in turn can be securely fixed at a location where the cleaning device has to be used. This may be, e.g., near a card reader terminal, or in a part of the card reader terminal, e.g. in the extension of the card reader terminal's card track. In a preferred embodiment the housing is provided in its lower portion with bodies which enable the housing to be releasably mounted in a holder placed close to a card reader terminal. This solution permits the actual housing containing the cleaning element for the information-bearing card to easily be replaced by releasing the housing from the fixed or releasably mounted holder and subsequently affixing a new housing with a new cleaning element.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un dispositif de nettoyage pour cartes-supports d'information, en particulier les cartes à piste magnétique, à puce et analogues. Ce dispositif de nettoyage se compose pour l'essentiel d'un sabot renfermant l'élément de nettoyage. Ce sabot est muni de fixations qui permettent de le monter de manière non définitive dans un support, lequel support peut lui-même être monté à demeure en un point convenant à l'emploi du dispositif de nettoyage. Cet emplacement de montage peut se trouver à proximité d'un terminal de lecture de cartes, par exemple dans l'axe de la piste de lecture dudit terminal. Selon un mode de réalisation préféré, le sabot est muni à sa partie inférieure de fixations qui permettent de monter le dispositif de manière non définitive dans un support disposé près du terminal de lecture de cartes. Il est ainsi possible de remplacer facilement le sabot qui renferme l'élément de nettoyage en retirant ledit sabot de son support démontable ou monté à demeure, puis de monter un nouveau sabot muni d'un élément de nettoyage neuf.
