BERTHOLD SCHNEIDER, OF BERLIN, GERMANY.
TAXIMETER OR FARE-INDlCATOR.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 777,697, dated December 20, 1904. Application filed June 16, 1904. Serial No. 212,852.
To all whont it puny concern:
Be it known that I, BERTHOLD SCHNEIDER, engineer, a citizen of the Empire of Germany, and a resident of 101 and 102Bernauerstrasse, Berlin, Germany, have made certain new and useful Improvements in Taximeters or Fare-Indicators, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a taximeter or fareindicator which is distinguished from former ones in that the push-lever which serves to put in the apparatus for the different fares and for Cash and for Free is dispensed with, and the manipulation is now eflected solely by the aid of the vane, which indicates whether the apparatus is in use or out of use. By this means a considerable simplification of the mechanism of the fare-indicator is obtained.
The invention is illustrated by a general View in the annexed drawing.
On the shaft or spindle 7), which passes through the plate a, are arranged, with the rod 9, which carries the vane, the jumperwheel 0 and a ratchet-wheel (Z. The jumperwheel is provided on its periphery with a number of notches it, corresponding to the several chargesas, for instance, three fares, cash, and free-and adapted to engage said notches on the jumper-wheel being moved round is a jumper or detent f, fixed to a flat spring g. In order that the jumper-wheel 0 shall not move backward from a fare to Free or from Cash to a fare, a springcontrolled pawl c is arranged to engage with the ratchet-Wheel CZ. This latter is provided with teeth for only a portion of its circumferenee, the remaining portion being plain. The pawlz' rides over the plain part when the apparatus is shifted from Fare 1 to Fare 8, so that a change from one fare to another can be effected. On the jumperwheel 0 is a catch is, which on the insertion of the first fare brings the registering mechanism into position by means of a lever m acting on a bar a. Fixed to the jumper or detentf is a hammer 0, which strikes the bell 19 each time a change is effected.
hen the vane is standing at Free, the parts are in the position represented in the drawing. If it be moved in the direction of the arrow, it passes down behind the plate a and is hidden from view, (thus indicating that the apparatus is in use,) and it will be held in the Fare 1 position by the detent f engaging the first notch h of the jumperwheel 0. By further moving the jumperwheel by means of the vane the indication can be changed to Fare 2 or Fare 3 and Cash, so that in order to again return the vane to the Free position one complete revolution of the vane and of the spindle 5 must take place. A reverse movement from either fares or 2 to Fare 1 is, however, possible.
Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of my said invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, I declare that what I claim is 1. In a taximeter or fare-indicator, the combination with mechanism for controlling the several fares, of a spindle cooperating therewith and having a vane-rod directly movable thereby and carrying a vane, and a jumperwheel on the spindle.
2. In a taximeter or fare-indicator, the combination of fare-controlling apparatus including a jumper-wheel, an axle or spindle carrying said jumper-wheel, and a vane-rod fastened to the axle and having a vane,- the vanerod being rotatable through a complete circle.
3. In a taximeter or fare-recorder, the combination of a supporting means, a shaft ex tending through the supporting means,- and having a rod fastened thereto carrying an indicator, the said rod being rotatable through a complete circle, and jumper and, ratchet Wheels on the shaft, the jumper-wheel having a plurality of peripheral notches corresponding to the several fare charges and also provided with controlling means. v
4. In a taximeter or fare-indicator, the combination of supporting means, a shaft or spindle extending through the supporting means and having a rod fastened thereto and rotatable therewith through a complete circle, the said rod being provided with an upwardlyprojeeting portion carrying a vane, a jumperwheel on the shaft having peripheral notches corresponding to the several charges and Cash and Free, and means for controlling the jumper-wheel.
5. In a taximeter or fare-indicator, the combination with a supporting means, of a shaft or spindle projecting therethrough and having a rod fastened thereto and carrying a vane, the rod and vane beingmovable through a complete circle with the shaft or spindle, and mechanism on the shaft for controlling the movement thereof in accordance with the several fares designated thereby.
6. In a taximeter or fare-indicator, the combination of supporting means, a spindle projecting through said supporting means and having a rod fixed thereto and carrying avane,
the rod and vane being movable through a complete circle with the spindle, a jumperwheel secured on the spindle and having peripheral notches corresponding with the several fares and also to designate Cash and Freej? means for limiting the movement of the jumper-Wheel, a detent cooperating with the jumper-wheel, and signal means.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two witnesses.
BERTHOLD SCHNEIDER.
