[0010] 在下列具体实施方式和所附权利要求中,示例性实施例的其它目的将变得显而易见。 [0010] In the following detailed description and appended claims, other objects of exemplary embodiments will become apparent.

[0011] 在示例性实施例中,自动银行机包括读卡器。 [0011] In the exemplary embodiment automated banking machine includes a card reader. 读卡器用于读取包含在用户卡上的数据。 Data on a card reader for reading a user comprising. 从用户卡上读取的数据用于识别有可能在银行机上执行交易的特许用户。 The user data read from the card for identifying authorized users is possible to perform transactions on the banking machine. 示例性实施例用于接收单证。 Exemplary embodiments for receiving documents. 这些单证可包括支票、现钞和/或其它类型的单证单证。 These documents may include checks, cash, and / or other documents of document types. 一台存款接收装置可接收多种类型的单证。 A deposit accepting apparatus may receive a plurality of types of documents. 在此实施例中,诸如支票的单证通过银行机壳体中的开口而被接收,并且第一传送器使其沿第一方向在银行机中的传送路径中移动。 In this embodiment, documents such as checks and banking machine is received through an opening in the housing, a first conveyor and moved in the machine transport path in a first direction. 传感器用于感测单证已移动到装置内的适当位置。 A sensor for sensing the document has been moved into position within the apparatus. 然后,单证与第一传送器脱离并与一对第二传送器接合,这对第二传送器在第一方向上彼此隔开。 Then, the documents from the first conveyor and engaged with a pair of second conveyor, which second conveyor spaced from each other in the first direction. 第二传送器与单证接合并用于使单证沿与第一方向横向交叉的方向在传送路径中移动。 The second conveyor engages with the documents for the documents in a direction crosswise to the first direction in the transport path of movement. 第一传送器与单证脱离,以使第二传送器可移动单证,并使单证的沿第一方向延伸的边缘与多个非接触传感器对准。 With documents from the first conveyor to the second conveyor movable document, and an edge extending in a first direction along a plurality of documents with non-contact sensors are aligned. 至少一个处理器根 At least one processor root

6据其程序工作以控制第二传送器并控制单证沿第二方向的移动,从而使单证边缘与非接触传感器对准,非接触传感器用作“虚拟墙”,以用于定位单证。 6 work according to its program control to control the movement of documents and the second conveyor in a second direction, such that the edge of the document aligned with the non-contact sensors, non-contact sensor is used as a "virtual wall", for positioning the document .

[0012] 一旦单证这样对准成使边缘沿着第一方向以期望定向延伸,那么当第二传送器与单证脱离时,第一传送器与单证重新接合。 [0012] Once aligned such that the edge of the document along a first direction extending in a desired orientation, and then when the documents from the second conveyor, the first conveyor and the document re-engaged. 然后,单证再次沿第一方向移动,经过一个或多个适当的传感装置。 Then, the document is moved again in the first direction, through one or more appropriate sensing devices. 在示例性实施例中,因为单证沿着第一方向对准,所以单证(支票)可使得磁性标记(诸如它的磁墨字符识别线或其它部分)通过一个或多个诸如磁读出头的磁性传感器的操作而读取。 In the exemplary embodiment, since the document aligned along a first direction, the document (check) may be such that the magnetic labels (such as its micr line or other part) by one or more, such as a magnetic read head operating magnetic sensor is read. 替换地或另外地,当单证在第一方向上移动时,可通过一个或多个用于读取单证磁性的磁性传感器在多个位置读取或感测到单证的磁性,所述单证上包含诸如磁墨字符识别行和/或其它特征等标记。 Alternatively or additionally, when the document moves in the first direction, through one or more magnetic read document or a magnetic sensor sensing a magnetic reading sensed at a plurality of locations for a document, the contains magnetic ink character recognition line and as / or other features on documents like numerals.

[0013] 在此示例性实施例中,支票沿第一方向移动,经过一对扫描传感器。 [0013] In this exemplary embodiment, the check is moved in a first direction, via a pair of scanning sensors. 扫描传感器用于读取支票每侧上的光学标记,并产生与之相对应的图像数据。 Scanning sensor for reading optical indicia on each side of the check, and generates image data corresponding thereto. 可处理与光学标记相对应的数据,从而通过处理器的操作产生与支票的前部和后部的图像或者其部分相对应的数据并将所述数据存储在银行机的一个或多个数据存储器中。 May be processed with optical indicia corresponding to the data, and store the data so that the image through the front and rear portions of the operation results of the check processor, or a portion corresponding to a banking machine or more data stores in. 也可分析支票上的标记以判定支票上的相关信息,以使其可用于引导交易。 It may also be analyzed to determine whether the check mark on the information on the check, so that it can be used to guide the transaction.

[0014] 在此实施例中,一旦支票已移动经过用于收集与光学标记相对应的数据的传感器,那么支票通常沿第一方向移动到可用作用于支票的契约区域的区域。 [0014] In this embodiment, after once the check mark for collecting data corresponding to the optical sensor has moved, then a check is moved in a first direction generally escrow area to the area may be used as a check in this embodiment. 在一些实施例中, 契约区域可具有足够的长度,以使多张支票或其它单证可暂时存储在其中。 In some embodiments, the contract region can have a sufficient length so that a plurality of checks or other documents may be temporarily stored therein. 在示例性实施例中,当支票处于契约区域中时,银行机用于判定支票是要被接收还是要被返回至客户。 In an exemplary embodiment, when the check is in the escrow area, banking machine for determining the check is to be received or to be returned to the client. 例如,在一些实施例中,当支票存储在契约区域中时,银行机中的一个或多个处理器可用于判定支票是否可被充分准确地读取、是否兑换现金或是进行其他处理。 For example, in some embodiments, when the check is stored in the escrow area, a banking machine or more processors they may be used to determine whether the check can be read with sufficient accuracy, whether or redeemed for cash or other processing. 如果其判定支票不能被接收,那么一个或多个传送器用于将支票从银行机中移出,从而支票返回至客户。 If it is determined that the check can not be received, one or more conveyors for the check is removed from the banking machine, so that the check is returned to the client.

[0015] 替代地,如果支票被认为是适于接收的,那么支票从契约区域移动,经过一个或多个压模打印机。 [0015] Alternatively, if the check is considered to be suitable for receiving, then the check is moved from the escrow area, through one or more stamper printer. 压模打印机用于将墨水标记施加至支票的一个或多个表面,以表明支票已被盖销或被另外处理。 Stamper printer for applying ink to mark one or more surfaces of the check, to indicate that the check has been serviced or otherwise processed. 在示例性实施例中,支票随后移动到垂直延伸的传送器中。 In an exemplary embodiment, the check is then moved to a conveyor extending vertically. 当支票进入垂直传送器时,通过适合的喷墨打印机或其它打印机的操作,在支票上进行打印。 When the check entering the vertical conveyor, printing is performed on the check by a suitable ink jet printer or other printer operations. 当支票移动经过喷墨打印机时,对支票进行适当的打印,以表明其已被盖销或进行其它处理。 When the check moves past the inkjet printer to print the check appropriate, to indicate that it has been serviced or otherwise processed. 当然,当处理其它类型的单证时,可进行不同标记的打印。 Of course, when the process other types of documents can be printed differently labeled.

[0016] 在示例性实施例中,喷墨打印机与传送器的相对侧对准,位于集墨器机构上。 [0016] In the exemplary embodiment, the opposite side of the conveyor is aligned with the ink jet printer, the ink catcher mechanism positioned. 示例性实施例的集墨器机构包括活动头。 Ink catcher mechanism of the exemplary embodiment includes a movable head. 活动头中包括开口,使得该开口可与喷墨打印机头部上的油墨喷嘴对准,从而将未沉积在支票或其它单证上的油墨接收于其中。 Movable head includes an opening so that the opening can be aligned with the nozzles of the ink jet printer head, so as not deposited checks or other documents on the ink receiving therein. 活动头的示例性实施例还包括擦拭器。 An exemplary embodiment further comprises a movable head wiper. 活动头通过电动机或其它移动装置在适当时间的操作而移动,从而擦拭器与喷墨打印机的头部接合,以使油墨和污染物在其上的积聚减到最少。 Movable head is moved by a motor or other suitable mobile device operation time, so that the wiper is engaged with the ink jet printer head, the ink and to minimize contaminants accumulate thereon. 这有助于精确打印,并有助于将银行机内的过度积墨导致对支票的可能损坏的风险降到最低。 This helps precise printing and helps to excessive ink deposits in the bank machine to check the risk of possible damage to a minimum.

[0017] 在示例性实施例中,在垂直传送器中移动经过打印机的支票或其它单证向下移动到存储区域。 [0017] In an exemplary embodiment, the vertical conveyor moves through the printer checks or other documents move downward into a storage area. 一旦单证移动得靠近存储区域的下表面,则横向可移动的活塞机构操作以便接合支票,并将其移出垂直传送器。 Once the document moves close to the lower surface of the storage area, the operation of the piston means movable transversely to engage the check, and moves out of its vertical transport. 在示例性实施例中,活塞机构是可移动的,以使得支票也可被移动到垂直传送器的任一横向侧上的存储位置中。 In an exemplary embodiment, the piston mechanism is movable, so that the check may be moved to a storage location on either side of the vertical in a transverse conveyor. 一旦通过活塞机构使支票从传送器移出,支票或其它单证可保持在一对壁表面与弹簧偏压垫板之间的中间连接部中。 Once the check is removed from the conveyor mechanism by a piston, checks or other documents may be held in an intermediate portion connected between the pair of wall surfaces of the spring biased plate. 结果, 活塞机构使得支票或其它单证可选择性地移动,以存储在存储区域中一个选定位置中。 As a result, the piston mechanism that checks or other documents is selectively movable to a selected storage location in the storage area. [0018] 在自动银行机的操作中可采用多种方法来存储由单证接收机构接收的单证。 [0018] In the operation of the automatic banking machine that may be employed various methods to store the document received by the document receiving means. 例如,在一些实施例中,该机构可仅接收支票。 For example, in some embodiments, the mechanism may only accept checks. 在这种实施例中,银行机可根据其程序而操作, 以将由拥有接收支票的银行机的特定机构签发的支票与其它机构签发的支票分离开。 In such an embodiment, the banking machine may operate in accordance with its programming, issued by the given institution to accept checks issued by the banking machine check means checks the other separated. 替代地,银行机可被编程以在一个隔室中存储有效支票,而在另一个隔室中存储可疑支票。 Alternatively, the banking machine may be programmed to store a valid check in one compartment, the check is stored in the suspicious another compartment. 替代地,在一些其它实施例中,单证接收机构可存储多种类型的单证。 Alternatively, in certain other embodiments, the document receiving means may store a plurality of types of documents. 例如,在通过该机构接收现钞和支票的银行机中,钞票可存储在一个隔室中而支票存储在另一个隔室中。 For example, in the banking machine and cash receiving mechanism by which checks, bills may be stored in one compartment and checks are stored in another compartment. 根据具体自动银行机的程序,可采用不同的方法。 The automated banking machine specific procedure, different methods may be employed.

[0084] 响应于单证的感测和由至少一个处理器判断的其它状况,第一传送器440操作以使单证移动到单证对准区域。 [0084] Other documents in response to conditions sensed by the at least one processor and the determination of the first conveyor 440 operates to move the document into the document alignment area. 在示例性实施例中,单证移动得处于接合在皮带段442与辊子444之间的状态。 In an exemplary embodiment, the document moves in a state engaged between the belt segment 442 and the roller 444. 如图1和图4所最佳地示出的,辊子444在上压板448中的开口446 中延伸,以接合皮带段442,或至少非常靠近皮带段442。 1 and shown best in Figure 4, the rollers 444 extend in the opening 446 in the upper platen 448 in order to engage the belt segments 442, or at least very close to the belt segment 442. 如图4所示,辊子444安装在可移动支架450上。 4, the roller 444 mounted on a movable carriage 450. 支架450可围绕轴452移动地旋转。 Holder 450 may rotate about the shaft 452 movably. 支架450的运动使得辊子444能够由于后面将讨论的原因选择性地定位在靠近皮带段442的表面处,或者定位成与之远离。 Movement of the carriage 450 such that the roller 444 can be selectively positioned for reasons discussed later near the surface of the belt segment 442, or located away therewith. 在单证被感测到已移动到装置中之后,处理器用于引起门关闭。 After the document is sensed to have moved into the device, the processor for causing the door is closed. 替代地,如果用户已通过银行机上的输入装置提供了表示他们将在银行机中存入多张单证的输入,那么门将保持打开, 直到最后一张单证被存入为止。 Alternatively, if the user has indicated that they will provide multiple documents stored in the machine's input via an input device on the bank machine, then the goalkeeper remains open until the last document is stored so far.

[0085] 如图4至图6所示,工作位置中的压板448与导引装置454中的导线相邻地连接。 As shown in [0085] FIGS. 4 to 6, in the operative position the pressure plate 448 connected to the guide wire 454 is adjacent. 导引部454和压板448包括相对应的轮廓边缘456,458。 The guide portion 454 and the platen 448 comprises a contour corresponding edges 456, 458. 示例性实施例的轮廓边缘是锯齿状轮廓的构造。 The edge contour of the exemplary embodiment is a configuration of zigzag profile. 在示例性实施例中使用此构造,以减小单证在压板和导引装置的相邻边缘被绊住的风险。 With this configuration in an exemplary embodiment, to reduce the risk in the adjacent edges of the platen and the document guide apparatus is snagging. 相邻表面的锯齿状轮廓构造有助于将当单证通过相邻表面时绊住的单证或折叠或损坏的风险降到最小。 Adjacent surfaces of the serrated profile configuration helps when the document passes through the adjacent surfaces of the risk of documents snagging or folded or damaged minimized. 当然,应该理解的是,此方法是示意性的,在其它实施例中可使用其它方法。 Of course, it should be appreciated that this method is exemplary, other methods may be used in other embodiments.

[0086] 在示例性实施例中,单证对准区域包括横向传送辊460和462。 [0086] In an exemplary embodiment, the document alignment area includes a lateral conveying rollers 460 and 462. 横向传送辊贯穿压板464中的孔,该压板464支撑皮带段442。 Transmitting transverse hole through the platen roller 464, the platen 464 supporting the belt segment 442. 示例性实施例的横向传送辊被构造成具有沿每个纵向方向从辊子的轴向最外侧延伸部延伸的轴向锥形表面,以使单证被其表面绊住的风险降到最小。 Transverse transport rollers of the exemplary embodiment is configured to have a longitudinal direction from an axial direction of each roller extending axially outermost surface of the tapered portion extending so that the document is reduced to a minimum risk of snagging surface. 在替代的实施例中,横向传送辊可具有简单的或复合的弯曲表面,以使绊住横向移动单证的风险降到最小,对于本公开来说,其构造也应被称为锥形的。 In an alternative embodiment, the lateral transfer roll may have a simple or complex curved surface such that the risk of documents snagging minimize lateral movement, for purposes of this disclosure, which should also be referred configured tapered . 在示例性实施例中,横向传送辊的上表面和皮带段442的上表面通常在大约相同的水平面上。 In an exemplary embodiment, the upper surfaces of the transverse section of the belt and the conveying roller 442 at about the same generally horizontal plane. 另外,每个横向传送辊与驱动器操作地连接。 Further, each of the transverse conveying rollers is operatively connected with the drive. 示例性实施例的驱动器使得横向传送辊能够独立移动, 以便为了如后面讨论的对准单证。 Drive exemplary embodiment such that the transverse conveying rollers can be moved independently, so as to align the document as discussed later.

[0087] 一对横向从动辊466和468与压板448支撑地连接。 [0087] A pair of laterally driven rollers 466 and 468 are connected to the support platen 448. 每个横向从动辊在压板448 的相应开口中延伸。 Each driven roller transversely extending in respective openings 448 in the platen. 横向从动辊466通常与横向传送辊460的位置相对应。 Lateral follower roller 466 generally corresponds to the position of transverse transport roll 460. 同样地,横向从动辊468与横向传送辊462的位置相对应。 Likewise, the driven roller 468 and the transverse position of the transverse conveying rollers 462, respectively. 如图4所示,辊子466和468支撑在可移动支架470上。 As shown, the rollers 466 and 468 supported on a movable carriage 4 470. 支架470可围绕轴452移动地旋转。 Holder 470 may rotate about the shaft 452 movably. 驱动器472响应于银行机中一个或多个处理器的操作而选择性地操作,以引起支架470和支架450的运动。 Driver 472 in response to an operation of a banking machine or more processors selectively operated to cause movement of the carriage 470 and the bracket 450. 驱动器可以是用于传递运动的合适装置,例如电动机或螺线管。 It may be a suitable drive means for transmitting motion, such as a motor or a solenoid. 结果,示例性实施例的驱动器472选择性地用于以将辊子444设置得靠近皮带段442,或者使辊子倾向于皮带段。 As a result, the driver 472 of the exemplary embodiment for selectively to the roller section 444 is disposed proximate the belt 442, the roller or belt segment inclined. 同样地,驱动器472选择性地用于将横向从动辊466和468设置为与横向传送辊460和462相邻地连接。 Similarly, the driver 472 is selectively used to connect the transverse conveying rollers 460 and 462 laterally adjacent to the driven roller 466 and 468 is provided. 对于将在后面讨论的对准单证的目的,这些特征都是有用的。 For the purposes of aligning documents will be discussed later, these features are useful. 当然,用于单证的横向传送器的此方法是示意性的,在其它实施例中,可使用其它方法。 Of course, the transverse conveyor for documents of this approach is exemplary and in other embodiments, other methods may be used.

[0088] 单证对准区域424进一步包括多个对准传感器474。 [0088] The document alignment area 424 further comprises a plurality of alignment sensors 474. 在示例性实施例中使用非接触传感器,该非接触传感器可在不需传感器的任何部分与单证接触的情况下便可感测到单证。 Non-contact sensor in an exemplary embodiment, the non-contact sensor can be sensed in the case where the document with the document without any portion of the sensor contact. 示例性对准区域包括沿着皮带段442的传送方向彼此隔开的三个对准传感器。 Exemplary alignment sensor alignment area comprises three spaced apart along the conveying direction of the belt segments 442. 在示例性实施例中,一个传感器与每个辊子460和462横向地对准,并且第三传感器设置在其余两个传感器的中间。 In an exemplary embodiment, a sensor 460 with each roller 462 and laterally aligned, and the third sensor disposed in the middle of the other two sensors. 示例性实施例的对准传感器是辐射型的,并且包括发射器和接收器。 Alignment sensor of an exemplary embodiment of the radiation type, and includes a transmitter and a receiver. 传感器通过感测从发射器发出到达接收器的辐射的水平,来感测邻近于该传感器移动的单证。 Level sensor measures the radiation emitted from the transmitter to the receiver through a sense, to sense movement of the sensor adjacent to the document. 应该理解的是,在示例性实施例中虽然使用了三个对准传感器,但是其它实施例可包括更多或更少数量的这种传感器。 It should be appreciated that, in an exemplary embodiment, although the three alignment sensor, but other embodiments may include more or fewer number of such sensors. 此外,在示例性实施例中虽然对准传感器沿着单证传送路径的方向对准,但是在其它实施例中可使用诸如传感器矩阵、多个横向设置的传感器或其它合适的布置。 In addition, although the alignment in an exemplary embodiment, the alignment sensor in the direction of the transport path of the document, such as a sensor matrix may be used but in other embodiments, a plurality of sensors disposed transversely or other suitable arrangement.

[0089] 现在将参考图8至图18描述单证对准区域的操作。 [0089] Reference will now be described with FIGS. 8 to FIG. 18 the operation of the document alignment area. 在示例性实施例中,当单证被感测到进入装置时,通过装置472控制的支架450被这样定位成使得辊子444被定位为与皮带段442相邻。 In an exemplary embodiment, when a document is sensed when the access device 472 by the control means so that the bracket 450 is positioned such that the roller 444 is positioned adjacent to belt flight 442. 此位置在图8中示出。 This position is shown in FIG. 8. 在此单证接收位置中,这样移动支架470,以使横向从动辊446和448远离横向传送辊460和462设置。 The document receiving position, so that the movable stand 470 so that the driven roller 446 and 448 laterally away from the transverse conveying rollers 460 and 462 is provided.

[0090] 响应于感测到单证476被定位在入口422以及其它合适的状况,此至少一个处理器用于导致第一传送器440移动皮带段442。 [0090] In response to sensing the document 476 is positioned in the inlet 422, and other appropriate conditions, at least one processor 440 for causing movement of the first conveyor belt section 442. 如果感测到两张或多张单证,那么第一传送器可能不运行或可能运行,然后如前所述地将单证返回给用户。 If two or more sheets is sensed document, then the first conveyor may not run or may run, as previously described and the documents returned to the user. 如图9所示,向内移动皮带段442导致第一单证移动并与辊子444和皮带段之间的夹层位置中的传动器接合。 9, the inward movement of the belt segments 442 causes the first document movement and position of engagement with the interlayer between the roller 444 and the belt flight in the actuator. 在此位置中,横向传送辊和横向从动辊彼此远离地设置,以使单证476可以与第一传送器接合的方式移动到单证对准区域。 In this position, the transverse transport roller and the driven roller laterally away from each other, so that the document 476 to move the conveyor of the first embodiment is bonded to the document alignment area. 横向传送辊460,462的锥形表面使单证便于没有障碍地移动经过辊子。 Transverse transport rollers 460, 462 causes the tapered surface to facilitate movement of the document through the rolls without obstruction. 还应该指出的是,压板464表面上的突出部用于通过将单证在各种零部件上受阻的风险减到最小来帮助移动单证。 It should also be noted that the protruding portion on the surface of the platen 464 by the risk for the documents in the various parts of a hindered to help minimize movement documents. 此外,压板上的突出部有助于将可能阻碍单证移动和/或引起单证损坏的表面张力的影响减到最小。 Further, the projecting portion on the platen help documentation might impede the movement of impact and / or damage to the document caused by the surface tension is minimized. 当然,这些方法是示意性的,其他实施例可使用其它方法。 Of course these approaches are exemplary, other embodiments may use other methods.

[0091] 用于单证的位置传感器包括在单证对准区域中,这种传感器用于感测何时单证完全移动到单证对准区域以使单证可被对准。 [0091] a position sensor for the documents included in the document alignment area, such a sensor for sensing when the document is completely moved to the document so that the document alignment area can be aligned. 这种传感器可以是辐射型的或其它适当类型的。 Such a sensor may be a radiation type or other suitable type. 当单证476向内完全移动时,第一传送器停止。 When the document 476 is completely moved inwardly, the first conveyor is stopped. 如图12所示,在传送器的停止位置中, 驱动器472用于移动支架470。 12, in the stop position of the conveyor, the driver 472 for moving the bracket 470. 这导致横向传送辊和横向从动辊移动得靠近位于它们之间的单证476,以接合单证。 This results in lateral and transverse transport roller driven roller 476 moves close to the document positioned therebetween to engage the document.

[0092] 然后,如图13和图14所示,驱动器472用于移动支架450。 [0092] Then, as shown in FIGS. 13 and 14, the driver 472 for moving the bracket 450. 这导致辊子444倾向于皮带段442,皮带段442相对于单证与此传送器脱离。 This causes the belt rollers 444 inclined section 442, the belt 442 with respect to the document section from this transmitter. 然后,用于移动横向传送辊的此一个或多个驱动器响应于至少一个处理器而运行,以使单证476沿与先前皮带段442使之移动的方向横着的方向移动,并消除单证的偏斜。 Then, for moving the roller transversely to this conveying the one or more drive operate in response to the at least one processor, to cause the document 476 along a section of the belt 442 so that the previous moving direction of the sideways direction, and eliminate documents skewed. 如图15所示,单证476横向地移动,直到纵向边缘478与对准传感器474对准为止。 As shown in FIG 15, documents 476 moves laterally until the longitudinal edges 478 and the alignment sensor 474 are aligned. 在示例性实施例中,对准传感器474提供虚拟墙, 顶着该虚拟墙对准单证的纵向边缘。 In an exemplary embodiment, the alignment sensor 474 provides a virtual wall, the wall against which the longitudinal edge aligned virtual documents. 通过单证边缘的对准传感器474对单证的感测使得能够精确定位单证,并将其对准在期望位置中,这有助于随后从那里读取标记。 By sensing the edge of the document alignment sensors 474 pairs of documents so that documents can be precisely positioned and aligned in its desired position, which contributes to subsequently read from the tag there. 在示例性实施 In an exemplary embodiment

13例中,单证是支票,纵向边缘的精确对准使得能够定位单证和其上的磁墨字符识别行,从而处于适当的位置中以由后面所讨论的读出头读取。 13 cases, the document is a check, so that precise alignment of the longitudinal edges of the document and which can be positioned micr line on, in position so that the read head to reading by the following discussion. 当然,在其它实施例中,可使用其它方法。 Of course, in other embodiments, other methods may be used.

[0093] 在一些示例性实施例中,对准传感器与一个或多个处理器可操作地连接,当单证朝着相对于传感器的阻挡位置移动时,传感器感测一接收器从一传感器的相关发射器接收的辐射量的减少程度,从而传送器响应于传感器而被控制。 [0093] In some exemplary embodiments, the alignment sensor processor is operatively connected to one or more, when the document toward the blocking position with respect to the movement sensor, the sensor senses a receiver from a sensor the degree of reduction related to the amount of radiation received by the transmitter, so that the conveyor is controlled in response to the sensor. 示例性实施例可被这样构造, 即,当与传送辊横向对准的对准传感器感测到从发射器到达传感器的辐射量的一定减少量时,操纵横向传送辊的驱动器可停止以使单证进一步横向地移动。 Exemplary embodiments may be configured such that, when the alignment detecting sensor laterally aligned with the conveying roller when the amount of sensed radiation reaches a certain reduction of the sensor from the transmitter, a transverse conveying roller actuating drive can be stopped so that a single further evidence move laterally. 然后,操纵另一横向传送辊的另一驱动器可继续运行,直到与那个传送辊相对应的对准传感器感测到类似程度的减少量时为止。 Then, the other actuating the transverse drive further conveying roller may continue to run until the transport roller and corresponding alignment sensor senses decreases until the amount of the degree of similarity. 这样,操纵独立受控横向传送辊的处理器导致单证的纵向边缘与通过使用传感器而产生的虚拟墙对准。 Thus, manipulation of independently controlled transverse transport rollers cause a processor is aligned with the longitudinal edge of the document by using the virtual wall sensor generated.

[0094] 在替代实施例中,该设备可根据其程序而运行,以导致各个横向传送辊这样横向地移动单证,从而感测从各个发射器到达相应接收器的辐射减少量,直到再没有减少发生为止。 [0094] In an alternative embodiment, the device may operate in accordance with its programming to cause the respective transverse transport rollers so that the document is moved laterally, thereby reducing the sense of measuring the amount of radiation reaching the respective receiver from each transmitter, until no reduce the occurrence of so far. 这与单证完全覆盖相应接收器的状况相对应。 This document completely cover the respective receiver corresponding to the condition. 然后,横向传送辊的各个驱动器可在方向上反转至想要的程度,例如,总减少量的50%,这表示横向边缘被定位成覆盖接收器的大约50%。 Then, the lateral extent of each of the drive rollers may be reversed to transfer in the direction desired, e.g., 50% of the total reduction, which means that the lateral edge is positioned to cover approximately 50% of the receiver. 这样,此替代实施例可对准这样的单证,所述单证具有相对高的辐射穿透率或具有取决于由传感器感测到的单证区域而可变的穿透率。 Thus, this alternative embodiment may be aligned such a document, the document having a relatively high radiation transmittance or having sensed by the sensor depending on the variable region of the document transmittance. 替代地,可使用诸如CCD的横向线性传感器阵列,以判断票据边缘的特定部分的横向位置。 Alternatively, the lateral position, lateral linear sensor arrays may be used such as a CCD to judge a specific portion of the edge of the bill. 替代地,可使用多个横向延伸的传感器阵列,以感测票据的一个或多个边缘的一个或多个部分的位置。 Alternatively, a sensor array using a plurality of transversely extending, to one or more ticket or a plurality of sensing an edge portion of the position. 可使用多个布置的阵列,以感测票据的位置。 Arranged in a plurality of arrays may be used to sense the position of the bill. 当然,这些方法是示意性的,在其它实施例中可使用其它方法。 Of course these approaches are exemplary, other methods may be used in other embodiments.

[0095] 一旦单证被对准且移动至如图15所示的位置,驱动器472用于这样移动支架450, 以使辊子444再一次移动得靠近皮带段442。 [0095] Once the document is aligned and moved to the position shown in FIG. 15, a driver 472 for moving this holder 450, so that the rollers 444 once again moves towards the belt segment 442. 然后,驱动器移动支架470,以将横向从动辊466和468远离横向传送辊地设置。 Then, the drive bracket 470 moves, the driven roller 466 so as to laterally and transversely away from the conveying roller 468 is provided. 此位置在图8中示出。 This position is shown in FIG. 8. 然后,通过第一传送器的移动可使得目前对准的单证进一步沿着传送路径从装置的单证对准区域移出,移动到单证分析区域。 Then, by moving the first conveyor may be aligned such that the current document is removed from further document alignment area of ​​the device along the transport path, is moved to the document analysis area.

[0096] 图17和图18公开了示例性实施例的操作特征,在该实施例中,单证480具有折叠边缘。 [0096] Figures 17 and 18 disclose the operating features of the exemplary embodiments, in this embodiment, the document 480 has a folded edge. 在此示意性情况中,折叠边缘如此形成,即,直到单证过度倾斜,与横向传送辊462相对应的对准传感器474才能感测到单证的纵向边缘。 In this illustrative case, the folded edges are formed so that, until the document excessive tilt, the lateral conveying roller 462 corresponding to the alignment sensor 474 to sense the longitudinal edges of the documents. 然而,在此情况中,中间对准传感器将用于感测纵向边缘的中间部分,同样地,与横向传送辊460相对应的对准传感器在传感器474之前感测单证的边缘。 However, in this case, the intermediate alignment sensor for sensing the sensing the longitudinal edges of the middle portion, in the same manner, the lateral conveying roller 460 corresponding to the edges of the alignment sensor sensing documents before the sensor 474. 在示例性实施例中,当中间对准传感器感测到单证边缘(即使一个端部传感器没有感测到)时,控制用于横向传送辊的驱动器的操作的至少一个处理器用于控制单证的横向移动。 In an exemplary embodiment, when the intermediate alignment sensor senses the edge of the document (even if one end of the sensor does not sense), for controlling the at least one processor for controlling the operation of the document transverse transport drive roller lateral movement. 甚至对于折叠单证或已经磨损的单证,这都是真实的。 For even folded document or documents have been worn, it is true. 此至少一个处理器控制每个横向辊以使单证横向地移动,直到三个传感器中的两个感测到单证边缘处于期望对准位置中为止。 This processor controls each of the at least one transverse roller so that the document moves laterally until the two sensing three sensors senses the edge of the document in a desired aligned position so far. 这样,即使是这种不规则的单证,通常也可在纵向方向上与传送器正确地对准。 Thus, even this irregular document, may be generally aligned with the conveyor in the longitudinal direction correctly.

[0097] 应该理解的是,示例性实施例为了在对准部分中对准单证,使用了辐射型的传感器。 [0097] It should be appreciated that the exemplary embodiment for alignment in the alignment part of the document, a radiation type sensor. 在其它实施例中,可使用诸如声波传感器、电感传感器、气压传感器或其它适当的传感器或其组合等其它类型的传感器。 In other embodiments, the sensor may be used such as other types of acoustic wave sensors, inductive sensors, pressure sensors or other suitable sensors or combinations thereof.

[0098] 一旦单证在传送路径的单证对准区域中已经对准,存款接收装置响应于与一个或多个处理器相关的程序而操作,以通过第一传送器使单证沿着传送路径移动到单证分析区域。 [0098] Once the document has been aligned in the document alignment area of ​​the transport path, and in response to the operation of the deposit accepting apparatus associated with a program or more processors to enable the first conveyor along the document transport path to move the document analysis area. 在示例性实施例中,单证分析区域包括至少一个磁性感测装置,该磁性感测装置包含磁性读出头482。 In an exemplary embodiment, the document analysis region including at least one magnetic sensing means, the apparatus comprises a magnetic sensing magnetic read head 482. 磁性读出头482与压板448支撑地连接,并且在示例性实施例中可相对于其移动。 Magnetic read head 482 and the platen 448 connected to the support, and in the exemplary embodiment is movable relative thereto. 在示例性实施例中,单证在单证对准区域中的对准用于将支票上的磁墨字符识别行与磁性读出头相应地连接。 In an exemplary embodiment, the document alignment in the document alignment area for connecting a corresponding micr line on the check and magnetic read heads. 因此,当通过第一传送器使单证移动到单证分析区域时,可通过磁性读出头读取磁墨字符识别行数据。 Thus, when the document is moved to the document conveyor by the first analysis region, you can read the micr line data read by a magnetic head. 当然,在一些替代的实施例中,可通过其它磁性感测装置(例如后面讨论的类型,或光学地,以诸如美国专利No. 6,474,548中示出的方式)来读取磁墨字符或其它磁性标记。 Of course, in some alternative embodiments, by other magnetic sensing devices (e.g., of the type discussed later, or optically, in a manner such as U.S. Patent No. 6,474,548 shown) to read the magnetic ink magnetic labels or other characters.

[0099] 图19至图21示出了用于磁性读出头482的可移动安装的示意性形式。 [0099] Figures 19 through 21 illustrate in schematic form a magnetic read head 482 is movably mounted. 在示例性实施例中,磁性读出头位于固定器484中。 In an exemplary embodiment, the magnetic read head 484 positioned in the fixture. 固定器484包括在孔488中延伸并在孔488中可移动的第一突出部486。 A first retainer 484 includes a projecting portion extending in the bore 488 and is movable in the bore 488 of 486. 固定器484还包括在孔492中可移动的突出部490。 Fixture 484 further includes a projection 492 is movable in the bore 490. 拉伸弹簧494贯穿壳体484的鞍座区域496。 The tension spring 494 through the saddle region 496 of the housing 484. 鞍座区域包括将弹簧494接收于它们之间的两个突出部。 The saddle area includes a spring 494 received in the two projecting portions therebetween. 用于磁性读出头的这种示意性安装使头部浮动,以使其可保持与邻近于其移动的单证的接合。 This exemplary magnetic read head mounted for floating the head, so as to be engaged with the holder adjacent thereto to move the document. 然而,提供了读出头的角度运动和垂直运动的该可移动安装特性降低了当单证移动经过读出头时阻碍单证的风险。 However, a read head angular motion and vertical motion of the movable mounting feature reduces the risk when the document moves past read head obstruct documents. 此外,这种偏压弹簧安装便于脱离,并且在需要更换磁性读出头的情况下便于更换。 Moreover, such biasing spring to facilitate installation disengaged, and facilitate the replacement needs to be replaced in the case of the magnetic reading head. 当然,此方法是示意性的,在其它实施例中可使用其它方法。 Of course this approach is exemplary, other methods may be used in other embodiments.

[0100] 示意性的单证分析区域除了读出头还包括磁性感测元件498。 [0100] exemplary document analysis area other read head further comprises a magnetic sensing element 498. 在一些示例性实施例中,当单证在单证分析区域中移动时,磁性感测元件可读取单证上的磁性特征。 In some exemplary embodiments, when the document is moved in the document analysis area, the magnetic sensing elements may be read magnetic features on the document. 在一些实施例中,磁性读取装置可用于读取多个磁性特征或行,以便于形成如这里所述的单证的磁性轮廓。 In some embodiments, the magnetic reading means for reading may be a plurality of rows or magnetic features, so as to form a magnetic profile of the document as described herein. 在一些实施例中,磁性感测元件可感测离散部分中的单证区域,这提供了单证或其部分的相对完整的磁性轮廓。 In some embodiments, the magnetic sensing element may sense a discrete document portion of the region, which provides a relatively complete document or a portion of the magnetic profile. 在一些实施例中,磁性感测能力可能是足够的,从而不需要用于读取支票的磁墨字符识别行的单独专用的读出头。 In some embodiments, the magnetic sensing capability may be sufficient, so that no separate dedicated for reading magnetic ink character recognition of the read head checks line. 当然,这些方法是示意性的,并可根据通过系统分析的单证的类型而改变。 Of course these approaches are exemplary, and may vary according to the type system by the analysis of documents.

[0101] 示意性的单证分析区域进一步包括第一扫描传感器500和第二扫描传感器502。 [0101] exemplary document analysis area sensor 500 further comprises a first scanning and the second scanning sensor 502. 扫描传感器用于感测单证的相对侧上的光学标记。 A sensor for optically scanning indicia on opposite sides of the sensing documents. 扫描传感器与至少一个处理器一同用于产生与单证每侧的视觉图像相对应的数据。 Visual image scanning sensor and the at least one processor for generating document data corresponding to each side. 这使得能够通过ATM中的至少一个处理器的操作来分析单证上的视觉标记。 This allows the operator through the at least one processor to analyze the ATM visual indicia on the document. 在支票及其它票证的情况中,扫描传感器还能够收集数据,以产生与支票的图像相对应的数据,这可用于将图像处理为替代的支票,和/或其它功能。 In the case of checks and other tickets, the scanning sensor is also capable of collecting data to generate the image corresponding to the check data, which can be used as an alternative image processing checks and / or other functions.

[0102] 在一些实施例中,与单证图像相对应的数据可由ATM用于向用户提供输出。 [0102] In some embodiments, the document image data corresponding to the ATM may be used to provide an output to the user. 例如, 支票图像可通过ATM的显示屏来输出,因此用户可确信ATM已收集了图像数据。 For example, a check image may be output via the ATM display, the user can be confident that the image data has been collected ATM. 在一些情况中,ATM中的至少一个处理器可在数据中施加数字水印或其它特征,以将假冒的风险减到最小。 In some cases, ATM, at least one processor may apply a digital watermark or other features in the data, so as to minimize the risk of counterfeiting. 在一些实施例中,至少一个处理器可根据其程序而运行,以通过输出给用户视觉图像来表明已将安全特征施加至图像数据。 In some embodiments, the at least one processor may operate in accordance with its program, in order to indicate that a security feature applied to the image data output to the user a visual image. 这可能包括文字和/或符号形式的输出,表明已施加安全特征。 This may include text and / or symbols output indicates that the security feature has been applied. 这有助于使用户确信ATM以安全的方式操作来处理已接收的支票。 This helps assure users that ATM operations in a safe manner to process received a check. 当然,此方法是可在一些实施例中实现的示意性方法。 Of course, this approach is exemplary method may be implemented in some embodiments.

[0103] 在替代的实施例中,与ATM相关的一个或多个处理器的程序可使得扫描传感器、 磁性传感器以及其它感测元件能够收集对分析其它类型单证有用的数据。 [0103] In an alternative embodiment, associated with the ATM or more processors, a program may be such that the scanning sensors, magnetic sensors and other sensing element capable of collecting useful data for analysis of other types of documents. 其它类型的感测元件可包括,例如,UV, IR, RFID,荧光,RF以及其它能够感测与单证相关的属性的传感器。 Other types of sensing elements may include, for example, UV, IR, RFID, fluorescence, RF and other sensors capable of sensing properties associated with the documents. 单证可包括例如收据、证件、现金、凭单,博弈材料,旅行支票,票据或其它单证类型。 It may include documents such as receipts, documents, cash, vouchers, gaming materials, travelers checks, tickets or other types of documents. 从分析区域中的传感器收集的数据可被处理,以判断这种物品的真实性和/或其类型及特征。 It may be processed from the analysis of data collected by the sensors of the area, to determine the authenticity and / or types and characteristics of such articles. 当然,包括在分析区域中的传感器的种类可根据由装置处理的单证的类型而改变。 Of course, the type comprising a sensor in the region of the analysis may vary depending on the type of processing documents by the apparatus. 同样,一些实施例可操作,以使得如果单证上磁墨字符识别行或的其它磁性特征没有与磁性读出头对准,那么单证仍然能被分析,并用来自于其它传感器的数据处理。 Also, some embodiments operable, such that if the document micr line or other magnetic features are not aligned with the magnetic read head, the document can still be analyzed and processed by the data from the other sensors.

[0104] 还应指出的是,单证通过与多个传动辊504接合而在单证分析区域中移动。 [0104] It should also be noted that the document is moved in the document analysis region by engagement with the plurality of drive rollers 504. 传动辊504响应于一个或多个驱动器而操作,该驱动器响应于ATM中的一个或多个处理器的操作而被控制。 Drive roller 504 operates in response to one or more drives, the drive is controlled in response to the operation of an ATM or more processors. 驱动器用于使单证移动至靠近传感器以及经过传感器,以助于读取其上的标记。 Drive for the document to move past the sensor close to the sensor and to facilitate reading indicia thereon. 单证可在一个或多个方向上移动,以便于对其进行读取和分析。 Document may be moved in one or more directions, for them to read and analyzed.

[0105] 一旦单证已移动穿过单证分析区域,单证沿着传送路径进入契约区域428。 [0105] Once the document has moved through the document analysis area, the document along the transport path 428 into the escrow area. 契约区域428包括第三传送器506。 Escrow area 428 includes a third conveyor 506. 传送器506包括上皮带段508。 Section 506 includes a conveyor belt 508. 通过压板449支撑的多个联动辊510在操作位置中位于靠近皮带段508处。 By interlocking the platen roller 510 over 449 is located near the belt support section 508 in the operating position. 进入契约区域的单证移动得与皮带段508 接合,并位于皮带段和辊子的中间。 Into the escrow area of ​​the document moves with the belt engaging section 508, and the middle section of the roller and the belt.

[0106] 在示例性实施例中,已穿过单证分析区域的单证在契约区域中移动,在作出有关是否接收单证的决定的过程中,单证可能会在契约区域中停止一段时间。 [0106] In an exemplary embodiment, the document analysis area has passed through the document is moved in the escrow area, the decision making process as to whether received documents, the document may be stopped for some time in the escrow area. 这可包括,例如, 通过ATM或其它连接系统的操作作出关于是否接收输入支票的决定。 This may include, for example, a decision as to whether the check received by the operation input ATM or other connected systems. 如果决定不应接收该支票,那么传送器的方向反转,并且支票从契约区域移动通过单证分析区域、单证对准区域,并从ATM移出,返回给用户。 If decisions should not received the check, then the direction of the conveyor is reversed, and the check is moved from the escrow area through the document analysis area, the document alignment area and removed from the ATM, returned to the user. 替代地,如果决定将单证接收入ATM中,那么单证以后面所讨论的方式从契约区域移动至装置的单证存储区域。 Alternatively, if the decision documents received into the ATM, then the documents in the manner later discussed means to move the document from the storage area of ​​the contract area.

[0107] 在一些示例性实施例中,契约区域可以足够大,以在其中容纳若干张支票或其它单证。 [0107] In some exemplary embodiments, the contract region can be sufficiently large to house a number of checks or other documents. 这样,进行涉及多张支票交易的用户的所有那些支票都可被接收在银行机中,但是如果用户选择返回所有那些支票或者如果一张或多张单证被判断为是银行机不可接收的,那么银行机的程序可使得能够轻松地返回所有那些支票。 In this way, all those checks relating to the user of the plurality of check transaction may be received in the machine, but if the user chooses to return all those checks or if one or more document sheets is judged to be unacceptable in the banking machine, then the bank machine program makes it easy to return all those checks. 替代地或额外地,诸如皮带存储机构的存储装置、传送器或其它契约装置可结合入存款接收装置的传送路径中,从而可在其中存储更多数量的单证,并且在交易未被授权进行的情况下可将单证返回给用户。 Alternatively or additionally, a storage device such as a belt storage means, conveyor means may contract or other transmission path incorporated into deposit accepting apparatus, so as to be stored therein in a greater number of documents, and the transaction is not authorized in in the case where the documents may be returned to the user. 当然,这些方法是示意性的。 Of course these approaches are exemplary.

[0122] 在示例性实施例中,当至少部分单证从契约区域移动到垂直传送器时,装置用于在其上打印标记。 [0122] In an exemplary embodiment, at least a portion of the document when moved from the escrow area to the vertical conveyor, means for marking printed thereon. 这可以是这里所述的与被处理的单证类型相适合的不同类型标记。 This may be the type of document being processed with different types of labels suitable herein. 在示例性实施例中,通过喷墨打印机578的操作来执行单证上的打印。 In an exemplary embodiment, the printing is performed on the documents by the operation of the ink jet printer 578. 喷墨打印机包括可移动安装的打印头,当单证在票据路径的垂直传送器部分中移动时,打印头靠近单证。 The inkjet printer includes a print head movably mounted, when the document is moved in the vertical conveyor portion of the sheet path, the print head near the document. 喷墨打印机包括喷嘴,用于选择性地从其中朝着票据路径喷出墨并将墨喷射在单证的邻近表面上。 The inkjet printer includes a nozzle, for selectively from which ink is ejected toward the sheet path on the ink ejection and the adjacent surface of the document. 喷墨打印机的喷嘴根据处理器的程序而操作,该处理器用于驱动喷墨打印机以选择性地从其中喷出墨,从而根据需要在单证上产生各种形式的字符。 A nozzle ink jet printer operates according to a program processor, a processor for driving the ink jet printer in which the character is selectively ejected from the ink, thereby generating a document in various forms according to needs. 例如,在示例性实施例中, 打印机可用于在支票上打印标记,以表明交易信息和/或该支票的取消。 For example, in an exemplary embodiment, the printer can be used to print on the check mark to indicate that the transaction information and / or cancel the check. 在示例性实施例中,打印头通过活动件可移除地安装,以使得能够容易地安装和移除。 In an exemplary embodiment, the print head is removably mounted to the movable member, so that can be easily installed and removed by.

[0123] 示例性实施例进一步包括集墨机构580,其在这里替代地称作集墨器。 [0123] An exemplary embodiment further includes an ink collection means 580, which is alternatively referred to herein ink collector. 在示例性实施例中,集墨机构用于收集当没有单证出现时可能从打印头排出的墨。 In an exemplary embodiment, the means for collecting the ink set when no ink may be discharged from the printhead when the document appears. 例如,如果单证在传送器中没有对准,或者如果银行机故障致使当没有单证出现时其尝试打印时,这可能发生。 For example, if the document is not aligned with the conveyor, a machine malfunction or if the bank so that when it does not appear when trying to print the document, this may happen. 替代地,当单证未出现时,为了执行头部清洗活动或其它确保喷墨打印机的可靠性的适当活动,喷墨打印机可响应于至少一个处理器而操作。 Alternatively, when a document is not present, in order to perform the head cleaning activities or other activities to ensure proper reliability of an inkjet printer, an inkjet printer in response to the at least one processor may operate. 此外,集墨器机构的示例性实施例用于通过擦拭喷嘴而护理打印头,以进一步便于可靠地操作。 Further, the exemplary embodiments of the ink catcher mechanism for care by wiping the print head nozzles, to further facilitate reliable operation. 当然,应该理解的是,示出和描述的示意性集墨器仅是可以使用的多种集墨器构造中的一种。 Of course, it should be understood that the illustrated and described herein is only illustrative ink set is an ink set more may be used in the construction.

[0124] 图22至图24中示出了集墨机构的示意性形式。 [0124] Figures 22 through 24 is shown in schematic form an ink set mechanism. 集墨机构包括在其中具有容墨区域的容墨本体582。 An ink set comprising the ink containing means therein a body 582 having an ink receiving region. 本体582上具有环形突出部584。 An annular projection 584 on the body 582. 突出部584中具有开口586。 Projecting portion 584 has an opening 586. 突出部的开口586与本体主部的容墨内部区域流体连接。 Opening of the ink containing region of the fluid inside the main body portion 586 and the projecting portion of the connector. 当然,此本体构造仅是示意性的。 Of course, this body is configured to be illustrative only.

[0125] 头部588包括本体部,该本体部构造为与突出部584重叠的方式延伸。 [0125] head 588 includes a body portion, the body portion is configured to extend with the projecting portion 584 overlap. 示例性实施例的头部588包括通常是环形的本体件,本体件包括在其中具有开口592的平面区域590。 Exemplary embodiments of the head portion 588 comprises a generally annular body member, the body member includes a planar area 590 having openings 592. 头部588还具有与之支撑连接的弹性擦拭件594,弹性擦拭件在与开口592有角度地设置的区域中向外径向地延伸。 Head 588 also has an elastic support connected thereto wiper member 594, the resilient wiper member extending radially outward region 592 angularly disposed with the opening.

[0126] 如图24所示,本体582的示例性实施例通常是蛤壳式构造,并包括下部596和上部598。 As shown in [0126] 24, an exemplary embodiment of the body 582 is generally clamshell configuration and includes a lower portion 596 and upper portion 598. 如所示出的,上部和下部互相配合以形成包括环形突出部的本体。 As shown, upper and lower portions cooperate with each other to form a body comprising an annular projecting portion. 同样,容纳在示例性实施例本体的内部中的是墨吸收件600。 Similarly, housed inside the body of the exemplary embodiment is the ink absorbing member 600. 墨吸收件用于吸收通过开口586进入本体内部的墨。 Ink absorbing member for absorbing ink through opening 586 into the interior of the body. 本体通过安装部601可移除地安装在银行机中,安装部接收合适的紧固件或其它支持装置。 By mounting the main body portion 601 is removably mounted in the machine, the mounting portion receiving fasteners or other suitable support means.

[0127] 在操作状态中,头部588以覆盖(通常环绕)突出部584的方式延伸。 [0127] In the operating state, the head cover 588 (typically surround) extending in a manner projecting portion 584. 通过与头部可操作地连接的驱动器602的操作使头部能够选择性地旋转。 By operating the actuator with the head 602 is operably connected to the head can be selectively rotated. 盘件604和传感器606用于感测头部588的至少一个旋转位置。 Plate 604 and a sensor 606 for sensing the rotational position of at least a head portion 588.

[0128] 在示例性形式的装置的操作中,头部588通常如图22所示地定位,头部的开口592 与本体的突出部中的开口586对准。 [0128] In an exemplary form of operation of the apparatus, the head 588 is positioned generally as shown in FIG. 22, the opening protrusion 586 of the body 592 an opening portion of the head is aligned. 突出部在可旋转头部的内部区域中延伸。 Projecting portion extending in the interior region of the rotatable head. 在此位置中, 从喷墨打印头喷出的未冲击单证的墨通过这些对准的开口进入本体内部。 In this position, ejected from the inkjet print head does not impact the ink into the interior of the body of the document through the aligned openings. 因此,例如,如果银行机的程序要求银行机周期性地执行头部清洗操作(在该操作中喷墨打印头的喷嘴喷射),那么墨可通过传送器的区域中的票据路径(单证通常出现在所述路径中)被传送,并进入集墨器机构的本体。 Thus, for example, if the banking machine procedural requirements banking machine head cleaning operation is performed periodically (the operation of the ink jet printhead nozzle), the ink sheet path through the conveyor in the region (usually document appears in the path) is conveyed, and into the body of the ink catcher mechanism. 然后,或者周期性地,根据银行机的程序,与驱动器可操作地连接的处理器用于引起驱动器602使头部588旋转。 Then, or periodically, according to the procedure banking machine, and a processor operably connected to the drive actuator 602 for causing the head 588 to rotate. 头部的旋转用于引起柔性擦拭件594与打印头接合并擦拭喷墨喷嘴的开口。 Head for causing rotation of the flexible wiper member engages the print head 594 and ink jet wiping nozzle openings. 这避免了积墨,积墨会阻碍喷墨打印机的有效操作。 This avoids ink product, the product will hinder efficient operation of the ink jet printer. 一旦擦拭器已移动穿过喷嘴,头部返回至位置,从而过量的墨被接收在本体内。 Once the ink wiper has moved through the nozzle head is returned to the position, so that the excess is received within the body. 在示例性实施例中,这通过使头部在第一旋转方向上进行全程旋转来实现。 In an exemplary embodiment, this is achieved by the head for the whole rotation in the first rotational direction. 这样,头部从这样的位置开始旋转,在该位置中头部和输出部中的开口与打印头对准。 Thus, the head is rotated from this position, the opening is aligned with the print head and the head portion of the output in this position. 头部被旋转,因此开口不再对准, 且柔性擦拭件与打印头接合并在其喷嘴上擦拭。 The head is rotated, the openings are no longer aligned, and the flexible wiper member engages the print head in its nozzle wiping. 头部继续旋转,直到开口再次对准为止。 Head continues to rotate until the opening is aligned up again.

[0129] 在示例性实施例中,驱动器响应于至少一个处理器而操作,以使头部在第一旋转方向上旋转360度然后停止。 [0129] In an exemplary embodiment, the driver in response to the at least one processor operates to cause the head to rotate 360 ​​degrees in a first rotational direction and then stops. 在其它实施例中,驱动器可反转方向和/或操纵头部使之经 In other embodiments, the driver may reverse direction to make it and / or by manipulation of the head

19历多个旋转。 More than 19 calendar rotation. 在其它实施例中,活动件可包括多个开口和擦拭件,并且可基于其构造适当地移动。 In other embodiments, the movable member may include multiple openings and wiper members and may move as appropriate based on the configured. 在其它实施例中,活动件可包括多个开口和擦拭件,并且可基于其构造适当地移动。 In other embodiments, the movable member may include multiple openings and wiper members and may move as appropriate based on the configured. 在一些实施例中,此至少一个处理器可周期性地操纵打印头,使其清洗或测试打印头,并可操纵集墨器以仅在这种清洗或测试之后擦拭喷嘴。 In some embodiments, the at least one processor may periodically actuating the print head, so that cleaning or test print head and being operable to set ink only after such cleaning or wiping nozzle test. 在一些替代实施例中,可在每次打印头操作之后或在已在其上打印设定数量的单证之后执行擦拭动作。 In some alternative embodiments, or may be performed after the wiping operation has been printed on a set number of documents in which the head after each printing operation. 在不同实施例中可采用不同方法。 Different methods may be employed in various embodiments.

[0130] 在示例性实施例中,使用合适的检测器来判断什么时候需要更换打印头。 [0130] In an exemplary embodiment, using a suitable detector to determine when to replace the print head. 与打印头可操作地连接的至少一个处理器可用于提供打印盒什么时候应该更换的指示。 At least one processor operatively coupled with the print head may be used to provide an indication when the print cartridge should be replaced. 在一些实施例中,这种指示可通过银行机发送给远程计算机至少一个信息来远程地提供。 In some embodiments, such an indication may be provided remotely transmitting at least one information to a remote computer through a banking machine. 在示例性实施例中,服务人员例如通过移动一个或多个紧固件,蝶片,夹子或其它件可容易地移除已有的打印盒。 In an exemplary embodiment, the service person, for example by moving one or more fasteners, tabs, clips or other member may be easily removed prior print cartridge. 然后可安装更换的打印盒,并通过将其与合适的件接合来将其固定在银行机中。 Replacement cartridge may then be mounted and with a suitable member to be engaged by fixing the banking machine. 在示例性实施例中,设置用于打印头的电触点,从而当打印盒处于操作位置中时,可进行用于使打印头操作所必需的电连接。 In an exemplary embodiment, the electrical contacts provided for the print head, so that when the print cartridge is in the operating position, can be used to power necessary for the operation of the print head connected. 新的打印盒这样安装,其打印头被定位成与集墨器的头部中的开口对准,从而,如果在喷出墨时在打印头和集墨器之间的票据路径中没有单证,则打来自印头的墨将流入集墨器并保持在其中。 New print cartridge mounted so that the print head is positioned to align with the head of the ink collector in the opening, so that, if there is no document sheet path between the print head and the ink collector at the time ink is ejected ink from the print head will hit the incoming current and ink held therein.

[0131] 在示例性实施例中,在安装新的墨盒之后,服务人员可测试打印机的操作。 [0131] In an exemplary embodiment, after installing a new ink cartridge, the service person can test operation of the printer. 这通过向银行机提供合适的输入来实现。 This is achieved by providing appropriate input to the bank machine. 服务人员使票据移动到票据路径。 Service personnel to move the bill to the bill path. 在一些情况下这可以通过手动地来实现,在其它情况下可通过提供票据并使票据在票据路径中移动穿过一个或多个传送器来实现。 In some cases this may be achieved by manually, and in other cases by providing bills and bill moves through the one or more transmitters is achieved in the sheet path. 从服务人员到银行机的输入装置的一个或多个输入导致处理器操作打印机,使其从打印头朝着票据路径喷出墨。 From a service to the input means inputs a plurality of banking machine or cause the processor to operate the printer, so that ink is ejected from the print head toward the sheet path. 如果存在票据,那么墨冲击票据以在其上打印。 If the bill is present, the impact of ink to print on their bills. 在一些情况中,处理器操作打印头以打印适当的图案,例如测试到所有喷嘴都在工作的一个图案。 In some cases, the processor operating the print head to print a suitable pattern, for example, a test pattern to all nozzles are operating. 在其它实施例中,可打印其它标记。 In other embodiments, other indicia may be printed. 当然,如果在票据路径中没有票据出现,那么来自打印头的墨通过头部中的开口进入集墨器本体。 Of course, if the bill is not present in the sheet path, the ink from the printhead body into the ink collector through an opening in the head. 当然,此方法是示意性的,在其它实施例中可使用其它方法和过程。 Of course this approach is exemplary, other methods and processes may be used in other embodiments.

[0132] 在一些实施例中,在进行打印之后,银行机可操作以擦拭打印头的喷嘴。 [0132] In some embodiments, after performing the printing, the banking machine is operative to wipe the nozzles of the printhead. 这可以响应于与处理器有关的程序和/或响应于服务人员的输入而实现。 This may be associated with the processor in response to the program and / or service personnel in response to input achieved. 在这种情况中,驱动器运行以使头部588围绕突出部584旋转,从而使得柔性擦拭件与打印头接合。 In this case, the drive is operating in the head portion 588 to rotate about the protruding portion 584, so that the flexible wiper member engages the print head. 在示例性实施例中,当集墨器的头部从其初始位置进行大约一个旋转时,擦拭件在打印头上擦拭。 In an exemplary embodiment, when the ink set for about a rotating head from its initial position, the wiper member wipes the print head. 头部响应于驱动器而旋转,直到再次感测到头部中的开口与打印头对准时为止。 In response to the drive head rotates until the sensed again into the head of the opening until the printhead aligned. 这由感测盘件604 的旋转位置的传感器606感测到。 This is sensed by the sensor for sensing the rotational position of the disc member 604 sense 606. 响应于感测到一个头部位于从打印头收集墨的位置,处理器用于使驱动器停止操作。 In response to sensing a head portion located at a position to collect the ink from the print head, the drive for the processor stops operating. 当然,这些方法是示意性的,在其它实施例中可使用其它方法。 Of course these approaches are exemplary, other methods may be used in other embodiments.

[0133] 在示例性实施例中,当集墨机构变得充满墨时,可通过松开将其保持在适当位置的一个或多个紧固件来更换本体并在操作位置安装新的紧固件。 [0133] In an exemplary embodiment, when the ink set of the mechanism becomes filled with ink, which can be releasably held in position to replace one or more fasteners and install a new body secured in the operating position pieces. 替代地,在一些实施例中, 本体可以打开,并可移除墨吸收件600且替换为新的墨吸收件。 Alternatively, in some embodiments, the body may be opened and ink absorbing member 600 is removed and replaced with a new ink absorbing member.

[0134] 在示例性实施例中,通过松开一个或多个紧固件或松开将安装部601保持在靠近单证接收装置的壳体结构的其它装置而将本体与银行机脱离。 [0134] In an exemplary embodiment, by releasing one or more fasteners or loosen the mounting portion 601 close to the holding means in the housing structure other documents and receiving apparatus from the body and the banking machine. 一旦实现了这个,移动本体580,以使突出部584不再在活动头部588的内部区域中延伸。 Once achieved this, the movable body 580 so that the projecting portion 584 no longer extends in the interior region of the movable head 588. 一旦实现了这个,可丢弃本体。 Once achieved this, the body may be discarded. 替代地,可打开本体,移除墨吸收件600,安装新的墨吸收件并再次关闭本体。 Alternatively, the body can be opened, removed ink absorbing member 600, mounting a new ink absorbing member and the body to close again. [0135] 通过使其突出部584在头部588的内部区域中延伸而安装新本体或具有新墨吸收件的本体。 [0135] or to install a new body having a new ink absorbing member main body so as to protrude through the inner portion 584 extends in the region of the head 588. 然后,本体通过安装部而固定在适当的位置。 Then, the body is fixed in position by the mounting portion. 响应于从服务人员到银行机的输入装置的适当输入,处理器用于引起驱动器602使头部588旋转。 In response to a suitable input from the input device service to the banking machine, for causing the processor 602 drives the head portion 588 to rotate. 处理器可根据其程序而操作,以仅当必须将开口592与打印头对准时才旋转头部588。 The processor may operate in accordance with its programming, only when it is necessary to rotate the head 588 when the opening 592 is aligned with the print head. 替代地,处理器可操纵驱动器,以在停止头部的旋转之前进行一次或多次旋转。 Alternatively, the processor steerable drive for stopping the rotation of the head until one or more rotations. 在一些实施例中,处理器可操作打印机以如前所述地测试其操作,然后可旋转头部以擦拭打印头的喷嘴。 In some embodiments, the printer processor is operable to test the operation as previously described, and then to wipe the rotatable head nozzles of the printhead. 当然,这些方法是示意性的,在其它实施例中可使用其它方法。 Of course these approaches are exemplary, other methods may be used in other embodiments.

[0136] 因此,如可理解的是,集墨机构的示例性实施例提供了打印机操作的有效方式,以避免过量的墨在ATM中的沉积,并使打印喷嘴能够保持在适当的工作状况,从而可以可靠地执行打印。 [0136] Thus, as is understood that the exemplary embodiments provide a set of ink means an efficient way of operation of the printer, to avoid excessive ink deposited on the ATM, and the print nozzles can be kept at an appropriate operating conditions, which can reliably perform printing.

[0137] 在示例性实施例中,诸如支票的单证通过垂直传送器556移动到存储区域430。 [0137] In an exemplary embodiment, documents such as checks by the vertical conveyor 556 is shifted to the memory area 430. 这种单证最开始保持在导引装置564的导轨562与垂直传送器的皮带段560之间。 This document initially held between the belt segments 560 guide rail 562 and the vertical transport 564. 在示例性实施例中,这种单证可选择性地存储在存储区域的两个可用部分(替代地,在这里称为位置)的一个中。 In an exemplary embodiment, such a document may be selectively stored in the two portions of the available storage area (alternatively referred to herein as the position) in one. 这些包括位于垂直传送器第一侧上的第一存储位置608和位于垂直传送器的相对横向侧上的第二存储位置610。 The vertical conveyor includes a second storage location on the first storage location 610 on the first side 608 and an opposite lateral side of the vertical conveyor. 通过使用可移动活塞件612来实现将单证选择性地定位在存储位置中,可移动活塞件响应于一个或多个处理器而操作,以使单证与垂直传送器脱离并使单证移动到存储区域的第一存储位置或第二存储位置。 By using a movable piston member 612 to achieve the document selectively positioned in the storage location, the movable piston member in response to one or more processors operate, so that the vertical conveyor departing from the document and move the document the first storage location of the storage area or the second storage location.

[0138] 图31至图35示出了示意性的活塞件使单证614移动到存储位置608的操作。 [0138] FIG. 31 to FIG. 35 shows a schematic of the piston member 614 so that the document to a storage position in operation 608. 如图32所示,当单证614向下移动到存储区域时,活塞612定位在如存储位置610所示的单证右侧。 As shown in FIG 32, when the document is moved down to the storage area 614, the piston 612 is positioned at the right side of the document storage location 610 as shown. 在示例性实施例中,通过使用适当的驱动器和移动机构(例如齿条传动、蜗杆传动、 带传动或其它合适的移动装置)来实现活塞件的运动。 In an exemplary embodiment, to effect movement of the piston member through the use of appropriate drive and the moving mechanism (e.g. the rack gear, worm drive, belt drive or other suitable moving means). 这种驱动器在图3中由驱动器616 示意性地示出。 This driver is schematically illustrated by the driver 616 in FIG. 3.

[0139] 一旦单证移动至合适的位置且垂直传送器停止,活塞612从如图32所示的位置移动至左侧,以与单证接合。 [0139] Once the document is moved to the right position and vertical conveyor is stopped, the piston 612 moves from the position shown in Figure 32 to the left to engage the document. 与单证的这种接合使单证的轮廓如所示那样变形,并开始横向地拉动单证,使其远离与皮带段和导轨或其它单证移动结构的接合。 Engaging with such documents so that documents outline deformation as shown, and start to pull the documents laterally into engagement with the belt away from the guide sections and moving documents or other structures. 如图33和图34所示,活塞的作用使得618移动,另外的单证可能与该弹簧偏压承压板支撑连接。 33 and 34, so that the action of the piston 618 moves, the document may be further connected to the spring-biased pressure plate support. 承压板618被弹簧或其它适当的装置偏压,从而与承压板支撑连接的单证通常被收集在承压板和导引装置的壁表面574之间。 Pressure receiving plate 618 by a spring or other suitable biasing means, such that the bearing plate connected to the supporting documents are typically collected between the wall surface of the pressure receiving plate 574 and the guide means.

[0140] 如图34和图35所示,当活塞612朝着存储位置608进一步移动时,单证与导轨和皮带脱离,从而单证最终由活塞保持得与承压板618支撑连接。 [0140] As shown in FIG. 34 and 35, when the piston is moved further toward the 612,608 storage locations, documents and the guide rail from the belt, so that the final document held by the piston pressure to give the support plate 618 is connected. 一旦单证614到达如图35 所示的此位置,活塞可再次移动至所示出的右侧,从而单证614归并到支撑在承压板618上的单证组中。 Once the document 614 reaches the position shown in this FIG. 35, the piston is movable to the right again shown to be integrated into the document 614 is supported on a bearing plate 618 of the document group. 此外,当活塞612朝着其原始位置返回时,支撑在承压板上的单证保持夹持在导引装置的壁表面574与承压板之间。 Further, when the piston 612 returns toward its original position, the support surface 574 remains clamped between the bearing plate and the guide wall in the document pressure plate. 因此,移动到存储区域的单证614已通过活塞的操作选择性地移动到存储位置608。 Thus, the document is moved to the storage area 614 is selectively moved to a storage location 608 by the operation of the piston.

[0141] 图36和图40示出了活塞件将单证存储在存储位置610中的操作。 [0141] Figures 36 and 40 illustrate the operation of the piston member in the storage position of the document 610. 如图37所示, 单证620移动到垂直传送器中,并且因为此单证将被存储在存储位置610中,所以活塞件612响应于处理器的操作而被定位在所示出的单证的左侧。 As illustrated, document 37 to move the vertical transport 620, and as this document will be stored in memory location 610, the piston 612 in response to the operation of the processor is shown positioned in the document left. 如图38和图39所示,活塞件612朝着所示出的右侧的运动,使得单证与传送器脱离并将其带入与弹簧加载承压板622 的支撑连接。 Shown in FIGS. 38 and 39, movement of the piston member 612 toward the right side shown, so that the documents from the conveyor and loaded into the spring bearing plate connected to the support 622. 承压板622被弹簧或其它适当的偏压机构朝着如图39和图40所示出的左侧 Toward the pressure receiving plate 622 is shown in FIG. 39 and 40 shown spring or other suitable biasing mechanism left

21偏压。 21 bias.

[0142] 活塞612移动至如图40所示的程度导致单证620被支撑在承压板622上的组中。 40 degree piston 612 shown in [0142] FIG lead to move the document 620 is supported on the bearing plate 622 in the group. 在此位置中,活塞可再次移动至左侧,以使存储位置610中的组中的单证保持夹在垂直传送器的后壁572与承压板之间。 In this position, the piston is again moved to the left, so that storage locations 610 group documents held sandwiched between the rear wall of the vertical conveyor 572 and the pressure receiving plate.

[0143] 如可理解的是,在示例性实施例中,通过定位并移动活塞而可选择性地将单证存储在装置的存储位置中,从而将单证存储在期望的存储位置中。 [0143] As can be appreciated, in the exemplary embodiment, the positioning and movement of the piston and selectively position the documents stored in the storage means, thereby to documents stored in a desired storage location. 这使得单证被分离成各种单证类型。 This enables the documents to be separated into various types of documents. 例如,在一些实施例中,可这样操作ATM,以使得在操纵银行机的特定机构签发的支票存储在存储区域430的一个存储位置中,而不是该机构签发的其它支票存储在另一存储位置中。 For example, in some embodiments, this operation may be ATM, so that the check stored in the specific mechanism operating in the banking machine to issue a memory location in the memory area 430, other storage check issued by the institution rather than another storage location in. 替代地,在该机构用于接收支票和现钞的一些实施例中,已被验证的钞票可存储在一个存储位置中,而被判断为假钞或疑似假钞的钞票可存储在另一个存储部分中。 Alternatively, for some embodiments, receiving cash and checks in the mechanism, has been validated banknotes can be stored in a storage location is determined as counterfeit banknotes or suspected counterfeit may be stored in another storage section. 在该机构用于接收支票和钞票的其它替代的实施例中,现钞可存储在一个存储位置中,而支票可存储在另一个位置中。 Other alternative embodiments for receiving banknotes and checks in the mechanism, the cash can be stored in a storage location, and the check may be stored in another location. 当然,这种方法是示意性的。 Of course, this method is exemplary.

[0144] 在替代的实施例中,可作其它安排。 [0144] In alternative embodiments, other arrangements can be made. 例如,在一些实施例中,一个或多个对准的垂直传送器能够穿过若干个垂直对准的存储区域传送单证。 For example, in some embodiments, one or more vertical transport can pass through the aligned plurality of vertically aligned storage region transfer document. 在这种情况中,单证可移动至与适于存储单证的存储区域相关的垂直水平面。 In this case, the document may be moved to a vertical level associated with a storage area adapted to store documents. 一旦处于那个水平面,活塞可横向地移动以将单证放置在垂直传送器任一侧上的合适存储位置中。 Once in the horizontal plane, the piston is movable transversely to the document placed on either side of a vertical conveyor suitable storage location. 这样,许多类型的单证可在ATM内被接收和分离。 Thus, many types of documents can be separated and received at the ATM.

[0145] 在其它替代的实施例中,存储机构可与诸如第6,331,000号美国专利所示的单证拣选机构结合,所述美国专利的内容结合于此以供参考。 [0145] In other alternative embodiments, the storage mechanism may No. 6,331,000 in combination with pick-up mechanism such as shown in U.S. Patent documents, the contents of U.S. Patent No. incorporated herein by reference. 因此,然后,被存储的单证(例如现钞)可通过拣选机构的操作而自动地移出并分发给ATM机的用户。 Accordingly, then, the stored document (e.g., cash) can be automatically removed by the operation of the pick-up mechanism and delivered to users of the ATM. 可采用各种使用上述实施例的原理的方法。 It may be employed using the principles of various embodiments of the method of the above-described embodiment.

[0146] 如图2所示,示意性的存储区域440通常保持在关闭位置,从而甚至对于进入ATM 内部的服务人员,也无法获得存储于其中的物品。 [0146] As shown in FIG. 2, a schematic of the storage area 440 is normally kept in a closed position, so that even for the ATM service person enters the inside, can not be obtained the items stored therein. 这通过使用滑动门624来实现,在示例性实施例中,滑动门构造为折叠部分。 This is achieved by using a sliding door 624, in an exemplary embodiment, the sliding door is configured as a folded portion. 能够移动此门,从而可获得存储在存储区域中的单证, 例如如图28所示。 The door can be moved, so that the document can be obtained is stored in a storage area of, for example, as shown in Fig. 在示例性实施例中,打开门624的能力由锁626控制。 In an exemplary embodiment, the ability to open the door 624 is controlled by the lock 626. 在示例性实施例中,锁626包括钥匙锁,因而如果受权人拥有合适的钥匙,那么其可进入存储区域的内部。 In an exemplary embodiment, lock 626 includes a key lock, and therefore if the attorney who have an appropriate key, then it can be stored into the interior area.
