  • Publication number: 20110000759
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a banknote identification apparatus capable of reducing the load of a motor for driving a press member. When an amount of stored banknotes becomes larger than a predetermined amount, a banknote support plate moved to a predetermined position by reciprocal movement of a press plate is detected by an on/off operation of a detection switch, when a detected number thereof becomes larger than a predetermined number, banknotes are regulated not to be inserted. Therefore, it becomes possible to reduce the load of the motor of a press unit compared with the conventional apparatus which detects banknotes fully stored by an output load of the motor. Hence, it becomes possible to effectively prevent the motor from causing trouble and prevent its lifetime being shortened.
