  • Publication number: 20140244529
    Abstract: A method of controlling a banknote processing apparatus for detecting, reporting, and integrally managing counterfeit banknotes includes detecting an injected banknote through an injection detecting unit; determining whether the injected banknote is a counterfeit banknote; obtaining counterfeit banknote information including a serial number of a banknote firmly determined as a counterfeit banknote; and transmitting the counterfeit banknote information including the serial number to a counterfeit banknote management system of a central bank through a communication unit when a counterfeit banknote report command previously set by a user is input. Since the blacklist of counterfeit banknotes established by the counterfeit banknote management system of the central bank is received and it is determined whether the injected banknote is a counterfeit banknote based on the received blacklist, accuracy of discriminating counterfeit banknotes of financial facilities including banks is improved.

  • Publication number: 20140098360
    Abstract: A method of discriminating a banknote using terahertz waves includes irradiating a banknote with terahertz waves; detecting reflected waves reflected from the banknote; generating a reflected image of the banknote based on the detected reflected waves; and discriminating the banknote based on the reflected image. Accordingly, whether a banknote is genuine or counterfeit, and the denomination of the banknote, may be easily and correctly determined using the reflected waves or transmitted waves passing through the banknote.
