Abstract

The cash dispenser shown in the figures may include multiple document cartridges 1 arranged in pairs on each side of a drive belt system. Fig. 1 is an explosion view with the document cartridges on one side omitted for clarity. A document is extracted from a cartridge and inserted between guide plates 3, 4, of the document-insertion guide, which is located between the belts 16, 17 and 19, 20, separating them as illustrated in Fig. 2. The document is positioned in the center of the guide by either of rollers 7, 8, depending upon the side from which it is inserted. Photocells 10, 11 detect the position of the document and energize the respective document feeder cams 13, 14 to push the document into the nip of the two pairs of drive belts 16, 17 and 19, 20 that are in surface-to-surface contact.

Modular Document Dispenser With Escrow

The cash dispenser shown in the figures may include multiple document cartridges 1 arranged in pairs on each side of a drive belt system. Fig. 1 is an explosion view with the document cartridges on one side omitted for clarity. A document is extracted from a cartridge and inserted between guide plates 3, 4, of the document-insertion guide, which is located between the belts 16, 17 and 19, 20, separating them as illustrated in Fig. 2. The document is positioned in the center of the guide by either of rollers 7, 8, depending upon the side from which it is inserted. Photocells 10, 11 detect the position of the document and energize the respective document feeder cams 13, 14 to push the document into the nip of the two pairs of drive belts 16, 17 and 19, 20 that are in surface-to-surface contact. Rollers 22, 23 bring the belts together to form a nip, as seen in Fig. 2. A document entering the second document-insertion guide 25, 26 is sensed by photocell 11 and pressed by cam 14 into the nip of belts 19, 20 at roller 23. The document is guided into deflector 28, into engagement with the contacting vertical drive belts 19, 30, and through the document sensor 32. This unit determines if the document is a single document or if there has been a misfeed and two documents have been issued by mistake. The document is then guided into deflector 33, into the nip of contacting drive belts 30, 35, and onto belt 37 of the escrow 38. The docu...
