Abstract

In an automatic bill-issuing machine which is located between two tellers and shared by them to issue bills to customers, bills issued to one teller in response to her request should not be allowed to be taken out by the other teller for transfer to the wrong customer. The figures show a mechanism for making a teller aware of her error as she tries to take out the bills issued to the other teller.

Bill-Issuing Gate Mechanism for a Dual Teller-Operated Bill-Issuing Machine

In an automatic bill-issuing machine which is located between two tellers and shared by them to issue bills to customers, bills issued to one teller in response to her request should not be allowed to be taken out by the other teller for transfer to the wrong customer. The figures show a mechanism for making a teller aware of her error as she tries to take out the bills issued to the other teller.

As shown in Fig. l, a gate l is normally closed. Referring to Fig. 2, when the bills to be issued to a righthand teller, for example, are transferred to the gate l, a controller (not shown) causes a right indicator lamp 2 to be turned on and a right teller identification plate 3 to be rotated counterclockwise by a right drive mechanism 4, which may be driven by motor, magnet, and so on, thus opening the gate l. At the time, a left drive mechanism 5 is not activated so that a left teller identification plate 6 can keep its standing position. Thus, the righthand teller can take out the bills without obstruction by the right teller identification plate 3.

In spite of the left indicator lamp 7 not lighting, if the lefthand teller tried to take out the bills in error, the left teller identification plate 6 would be in the way of her action, causing her to suspect an error.
