WILLIAM W. LASKER, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR TO POWERS ACCOUNTING MACHINE COMPANY, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., A CORPORATION OF DELAWARE.

ROTARY SELECTOR OR ANALYZER.

Application filed September 15, 1920. Serial No. 410,467.

To all whom z't ymay concern Be it known that I, VILLTAM 1V. LAsKEii, a citizen of the United States, residing in Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Rotary Selectors or Analyzers, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to analyzers, or selectors, for machines for sorting perforated cards of the kind used in automatic accounting and calculating machines, in whrich sorter` cards are passed fromv the card analyzer and deflected into the appropriate compartments by deflectors which are not until the card reaches ,the deflectors. A

The invention relates more particularly to an analyzer suitable for the sortinor machine described in my U. S. Letters lsbatent No. 1,315,370, patented Sept. 9, 1919, for sorting machines.

' One object of the invention is to provide an eflioient mechanical means associated with each compartment to the exclusion of the others for controlling each delector by the card in the analyzer destined to be detlected by such deflector into the associated compartment.

A particular object of the invention is to provide an all-mechanical analyzer or selector having no reciprocatory parts, for use with my above mentioned sorting machine, or of general application or even for the automatic accounting machine itself. Otherl objects will appear as the description proceeds; and while herein I described minute details of the linvention, the invention is not limited to these, since the features of construction and combination may be greatly varied without departing from the scope of the invention as claimed. I

In the accomganying drawling showing by way of example, one of many posible embodiments of the invention,

Figure 1 is a side elevation of the sorting machine with the new rotary all-mechanical analyzer attached thereto;

Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmental perspective view showing the main rotary partsA of the analyzer;

Fig. 3 is an aXial vertical sectional =view taken through the rotary and associated parts of the analyzer; and

-block 19 lis reciprocated.

. depending upon the position of the hub.

Fig. 4 is a fragment-al end-view on the analyzer parts being broken away.

As shown in Fig. 1, the machine comprises a base 1() on which are mounted a pair of side plates 11 on which are mounted the card feeding means 12, the analyzei 11, and other partsY of the mechanism to be mentioned. The card feeding means 12 of the analyzer 14 are similar in construction to that described inthe United States patent to James Powers, No. 1,282,971, issued April 1, 1919; and hence they need not now be shown or described in all their details.

The upper part of the feeding means coniprises a magazine hopper 18 adapted to receive a pack of cards to be sorted; and at the lower part of the feeding means there is provided a reciprocating block 19 guided in the lower part of the feeding means and connected by means of a link 20 to a suitably reciprocated lever arm 21, whereby the The block 19 is provided with a suitable picker knife whereby when the block is reciprocated the lowermostcard in the magazine is fed forward through a micrometer slot at the outlet side of the feeding means.

From the micrometer slot the card is received between the roller 36 and a roller mounted on a shaft suitably driven by the sprocket or pulley 40 and chain or belt 11 or the like from the drive wheel 44 of the inotoi 15. Suitable gears 45 and L16 (Fig. 1) convey the power to the roller 36. From the roller 36 the card passes to the analyzer, now to be described and forming the principal feature of thejpresent invention.

On the side plates 11 is mounted the analyzer frame comprising end pieces or plates 50 carrying a pressure member shaft 51 (Fig. 3) rotatably mounted in the upper part of said end pieces and provided with a longitudinal series of notches 52 and rcceiving a pressure disk hub 53 adjustably slidable to diiferent positions on said shaft and provided with a radial bore receiving a pawl housing 55 in which is slidable a pawl 56 engaging in any one of said notches spring in said housing presses said pawl in such engagements. mounted fast on said hub is provided with a series of peripheral radial guide recesses 61 and series of radial bar-receiving slots A pressure disk 6U.

tio

62 and a cover disk 63 also provided with radial slots 64 registering with the slots 62 and all connecting with said recesses 61. Analyzing pressure pins 65 (F ig. 2) are radially and sliidably disposed in said recesses 61 and project at the peripheryof said disk and are provided with slots 66 registering with said slots 62 and 64 of the disk.

A supporting member shaft 68 (Fig. 3) rotatably mounted in the lower part of said end pieces is constrained to rotate with the pressure shaft 51 by means of gears 70 and 71. A. cylindrical supporting member 73 is mounted fast on said supporting member shaft 68 and is provided with a plurality of equally spaced annular grooves 74 respectively adapted to register with and receive said analyzing pins 65 for any position of said disk 60, and also adapted to register with the columns of a perforated statistical card 75 (F ig. 4) fed by the feed means under the roller 36 and over said supporting member, whereby said disk when properly adjusted on the pressure shaft 51 may cause said analyzing pins to register with any desired column of said cards thereby to permit any anaylzer pin to pass through said card into one of said grooves 74 if a perforation should be found by such pin in the card, as will be explained.

Guide disks 76 (Fig. 3) fast on said pressure member shaft 51 near ends of said sup` porting member 73 are each provided at their outer' faces with a disk-shaped recess 77, radial slots 78 alined with said slots of the pressure disk and the other guide disk 76. A cover disk 80 is secured fast at the inner face of each guide disk for covering the disk shaped`recess 77, and is provided with guide slots 81 registering with the radial guide slots of the guide disk. Said Cover disks are also provided with perforated ears 82 radially alined with peripheral guide recesses 83 of the guide disks. Latches 85 slidable in said perforated ears and projecting from said peripheral guide slots 83 are provided with latching slots 86 substantially registering in said guide slots of the guide and cover disks. The latches are outwardly pressed by the springs 87.

Actuating bars 90 pass through the slots 66 of the analyzer pins and are radially and horizontally slidable in each set of alined radial slots of said'disks, and said latches` and each provided near one end with a latch lug 91 adapted to engage upon the one side or the other of said latches 85 when said latch is in outward position. and to be released by the latch when the latch is pressed inwardly by the edge of a card fed across the member 73. The latches and lugs are provided alternately at each supporting disk and are in staggered relation to the latches and lugs at the other supporting disk; and the bars 90.have diii'erentially placed actuat- Maaate ing lugs 92 at the projecting ends, so that each actuating lug travels in a different path as the bar 90 revolves around the shaft 51.

For giving each bar 90 an outward and endwise movement I provide a pair of par allel links 94 and 95 inclined to suc-h actuating bar and having their outer ends pivotally secured to each actuating bar and their inner portions pivoted to a pivot ring 96 seated in an annular recess in the hub 98 of the guide disk. Said links move in and are guided by slots 99 of the guide disk hubs. The links of the successive bars are inclined in staggered direction, and the links 94 which areinclined outwardly from the midlongitudinal plane of the selector are eX- tended away Jfrom said plane to provide restoring arms 100. Spring 101 (Fig. 2) are strained between adjacent bars, whereby said links tend to assume greater angles relative to said pressure member shaft 51 and said bars to move away from said shaft, whereby when one of said analyzed pins finds a perforation in the card, and the edge of the card presses inwardly the latches to permit the passage of the latch lug 91, said spring 101 will cause said actuating bar and said analyzer pin and the differentially placed lug 92 on said actuating bar to move farther away from thev member shaft, whereby said outwardly moved actuating lug 92 will bring about the operation presently to be described. A cam wheel 103 placed on each end piece 50 engages said restoring arm 100 after said operation has taken place; and an unlatching cam wheel 104 (Fig. 4) also mounted on each end piece 50 engages said latches 85 and releases said latch lugs 91, while said restoring is taking place.

A collar 106 (Fig. 3) disposed near each end of said pressure member shaft is provided with a deep annular groove 107 and a shallow annular groove 108; and a disabling pawl 109 pivotally mounted on each of said restoring arms 100 has its, inner end.

normally disposed in said deep groove 107 and is of such length as to permit operation of said restoring arm while its end is so disposed. Said end may be placed in said shallow groove and the pawl is of such length that when so placed. said restoring arm 100 will be held at its outer lilnit of movement whereby the inner end o1" each link and the associated actuating bar and analyzer pin will be held at its inner limit of movement and thereby be disabled from operation.

Guide sectors 111 mounted at the outer ends of said disabling collars are provided with radial guide slots 112 in which the outer ends of said actuating bar and said restoring arms are additionally guided.

A plurality of push levers 115 ('Fig. 4) intermediately fulcrumed on an idler shaft 116 have upper arms 117 adapted to be engaged by said actuating lugs 92 only when said actuating lug and bars are moved outwardly as above explained. The lower' end of each of said push levers is provided with an upwardly hooked end 1148, and the intermediate part of said lever is provided with a lateral push finger 119 adapted to engage a plunger 120 for a purpose to be explained. An actuating shaft 122 driven by a gear 123 driven by gear 124 driven by the gear 45 carries actuating collars 125 each provided with a radially projecting actuating nose 126 adapted normali to pass near and out of contact with the ooked ends 118 of the respective push levers and adapted when said push fingers are set by said actuating lugs 92, whereby said hooks are brought into the path of said nose 126, then to engage said ends 118 and thereby positively rock the push lever to actuate the plunger 120 for a purpose to be explained.-

The roller 36 and the roller on the shaft carrying the pulley 40 feed the-card to the analyzer a little faster than the peripheral speed of the disks 60 and 76 and a positioning stop bar 128 (Fig. 4) fast on said guide' disks is adapted to engage the front edge of the card 75 as the card is fed between said supporting member 73 and said pressure disk, thereby to position the card and register the perforatlon locations with the corresponding analyzer pins.

(Jut out levers 130 intermediately pivoted on said end pieces 50 of the frame have forwardly projected curved arms 131 disposed at the ends of said supporting member and are adapted to engage the under face of the edges of cards passing through f the selector, and to be depressed by the outwardly spring pressed latches 85 when no card is present, thereby to rock the cut out lever 130 and a releasing finger 132 of a cut out switch 133 thereby to permit the spring 134 to rock the switch blade 135 from the contacts 136 thereby to open the switch and cut off the power from the motor 45 of the machine when no card is present in the selector.

The superposed feed rolls 137 and 138 1) mounted between pieces 5() receive from the analyzer and convey them "f to the rolls presently to be described. The

rolls 137 and 138 are driven by gears 139 driven by the idler 140 driven by the gear 123 and driving the gear 70.

The cards are received from the rollers 137 (Fig. 1) and are finally conveyed in a path above compartments 192 formed by deflectors 200. Upon each deflector shaft 199 there are rotatably mounted a pair of lower guide rollers against which are yieldably pressed the upper guide rollers 204 rotatably mounted (Fig. 1) between the supports 196.

As explained in said Patent No. 1,315,870 all these rollers are suitably rotated to convey the cards in a horizontal path above the defiectors 200, when the defiectors are in their normal horizontal position as shown in Fig. 1. When the deflectors 200 are deflected upwardly so that a card passing from the analyzerpasses to the underside of the deflector, such card is deflected into one of the compartments 192 on to the receiving plate 207. n

As the various compartments 192 are placed rogressively greater distances from the ana yzer, it requires a greater length of time for the card passing from the analyzer to reach the compartments more remote therefrom; and provision is made for operating the defiector just at -the instant that the card reaches it so that each card may be deflected into its appropriate compartment without having to wait until sufficient time has elapsed for a card to be deflected into the most remote compartment. The means for accomplishing this is operated by the action of the push fingers 119 (Fig. 4) upon the pylungers 120 which pins, transmit motion to the inner wires 209 and push cables 210 for operating the selecting mechanism of the'card conveyor as is fully explained in said -Patent No. 1,315,370.

From'the foregoing the operation of the entire machine will be readily understood and need now be only very briefly summarized as follows'.

By means of the reciprocating picker 19, each card is fed from the lower part of the magazine hopper 18 to the roller 36 whence it is carried above'the supporting member 73 and against the stop plate 128 (Fig. 4), thereby positioning the card relative to the analyzing pins 65 so that each pin will be disposed over its corresponding number on the card. The card is then` carried by its feed rollers 36, the disks 60 and 76 and the member 73 until a latch 85 is thrown up to release the bar 90 and a pin 65 finds a perforation and the spring 101 (Fig. 2) moves outwardly the associating bar 90, thus throwing down and out the actuating lug 92 where upon further revolution thereof causes it to'engage the push lever 117 associated with the compartment to which said card is destined thereby bringing about the setting of the push lever to cause the hooked end 118 to be engaged by the nose 126 to positively operate the push lever 117 and the inner wire 209 associated with said compartment thereby to cause the setting of the mechanism which is to operate the detiector 200 as described in said Patent No. 1,315,370. When this takes place the card which caused its setting is seized by the roller 137 and this card then travels toward the deflectors 200 of the compartment to which it is destined and because of the timed relation between the delector-setting means, the remoteness of the compartment from the analyzer, and the speeds of travel of the card, said setting means. as explained in said Patent No.-

1,315,370, operates the deiiector 200 just as the card comes into operative relation thereby with and defiects the card into the appropriate compartment. The operating means immediately permits the defiectors to fall, so that a card immediately following the card thus deflected may pass over said deflectors for a more remote compartment.

lt is. of course, necessary that the pins 65 be always` adjusted so that the pins register with the row of perforations which are to be analyzed. This can be done merely by sliding the disk (30 on the pressure shaft 51 until the pins register with the desired column.

As soon as thev push lever 117 has been operated, the cam wheel 104 engages the latch 85 thus releasing the lug 91 from the latch whereupon the bar 90 resumes its normal position under the influence ot' the engagement of the restoring cam wheel 103 upon the restoringarm 100. This operation isrepeated until all of the cards are analyzed and deposited in their appropriate compartments.
