Endorser Checking

Endorsements are made on checks by a rotating endorser message plate P. This is started by a clutch in response to a signal from a photo device which senses the approach of the checks.

Timing sectors E2 and E3 on the opposite sides of a disc on the endorser shaft are scanned by photo devices PE2 and PE3, respectively. In the home position, And 1 detects the normal white condition of E2 and E3. This is inverted by inverter I so as to prevent Anding with the output of And 2 through single shot SS in And 3, which would turn stop latch 1 on, if not in the home position.

Check latch L2 is turned on by one of And's 4 or 5, depending on whether the check is to be endorsed at the left or right position.

Such is in response to outputs from PE2 and PE3 defining the location of an angle defining the permissible endorsing position. One of And's 6 or 7 turns the check latch L2 off at the end of the permissive endorse position in response to the outputs of PE2 and PE3.

The off output of latch L2 is Anded in And 8 with a checking on signal. The output signal of photo device P6 responds to the position of the check. If the signal occurs while the latch L2 is on, the endorsement is in the proper area. If before or after, it is incorrect, and And 8 turns latch L1 on to indicate an error.
