Drive for the Extension Unit of a Money Transfer Mechanism

      This article describes a drive for the extension unit of a
money transfer mechanism.

      As automatic teller machines are subject to different security
requirements, they must also be suitable for safes with a wall
thickness of 80 mm.  For this purpose, an additional transfer means
is required.  This transfer means serves to handle the money between
the denomination feed module DFM in the safe and the front drive FD
outside the safe (Fig. 1).

      The described invention constitutes an improvement over the
prior art in that the extension unit is driven by the motor of the FD
through friction wheels instead of timing belts.  To ensure that the
friction wheels are adequately pressed together, the extension unit
is spring-mounted (Fig. 2).

      The springs must be sufficiently rigid so that they are not
unduly pressed together by the mass of the extension unit.  The FD
forces the extension unit downwards by means of the friction wheels
so that the latter are adequately pressed together.  Additional
friction wheels are provided opposite the drive to ensure that the
extension unit is uniformly forced downwards and that tilting inside
the safe is avoided.
