Title
(EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR COIN SORTING, COUNTING AND BAGGING COINS
(FR) PROCEDE DE DETECTION DE MONNAIE ET ARRET DE REMPLISSAGE POUR TRIEUSE DE MONNAIE
Abstract
(EN)
A coin handling machine (10) has a coin sorting member (12) with a plurality of sorting openings (15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20) by which respective denominations of coins (14) are sorted, having a coin driving member (21) with webs (22) for moving the coins to the coin sorting openings (15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20), having a motor (60) coupled to the coin driving member (21), and having a brake (65) for stopping the motor (60), the coin handling machine (10). A coin imaging sensor (40) optically measures at least a portion of a coin (14) and transmits dimensional data for identifying coins by denomination. A main controller (120) receives the dimensional data and counts each coin for bag stopping purposes separate from the counts maintained for totalizing the sorted coins. The controller (120) transmits signals to at least reduce the speed of the motor (60) when a bag count limit is reached for a respective denomination. Detectors (15b, 16b, 17b, 18b, 19b and 20b) are provided adjacent the sorting openings (15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20) for detecting a last coin as it is sorted and moved into a bag.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif (10) de manipulation de monnaie comprenant un organe (12) de tri de pièces qui comporte une pluralité d'ouvertures (15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20) de tri à travers lesquelles les catégories respectives de pièces (14) sont réparties. Cet organe de tri comprend un élément (21) d'entraînement de pièces doté de cloisons (22) permettant de faire avancer les pièces jusqu'aux ouvertures (15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20) de tri, et un moteur (60) connecté avec cet élément (21) d'entraînement de pièces, ainsi qu'un frein (65) permettant de stopper le moteur (60). Un capteur (40) imageur de monnaie mesure optiquement au moins une partie d'une pièce (14) et transmet ces données de dimension afin de permettre l'identification des pièces en fonction de leur valeur. Une unité (120) de commande principale reçoit ces données de dimension et compte chaque pièce, indépendamment du comptage destiné au calcul du total des pièces triées, afin de pouvoir interrompre le remplissage des réceptacles. L'unité (120) de commande émet de signaux afin de provoquer au moins une réduction de la vitesse du moteur (60) lorsque la limite de remplissage d'un réceptacle est atteinte pour une catégorie donnée de pièces. Des détecteurs (15b, 16b, 17b, 18b, 19b et 20b) sont installés à proximité immédiate des ouvertures (15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20) de tri afin de détecter la dernière pièce triée et acheminée dans un réceptacle.
