  • Publication number: 20200273009
    Abstract: Provided is a money handling apparatus that can be easily introduced in a store. The money handling system includes: a money handling apparatus installed in a store and capable of executing basic functions including a checkout function; and a operation terminal connected to the money handling apparatus. When executing the checkout function, the money handling apparatus receives, through the operation terminal, an input of prices and quantities of items a customer purchases in the store, to calculate a transaction amount. The apparatus recognizes and counts money, which is deposited through an inlet for paying the transaction amount, to calculate a deposit amount of deposited money, and stores the deposited money inside the money handling apparatus. When the deposit amount exceeds the transaction amount, the money handling apparatus feeds out money corresponding to a difference therebetween, and dispenses the fed out money as change to an outlet.

  • Patent number: 4664085
    Abstract: A control system is provided with a mass airflow sensor for sensing mass of intake air and for producing a mass airflow signal, an engine speed sensor for an engine speed signal proportional to the speed of the engine, and a throttle angle position sensor for producing a throttle angle signal representing the angle of the throttle valve. A first table is provided for storing first coefficients for characteristics of the injector, and a second table is provided for storing second coefficients for characteristics of the mass airflow sensor. Injection pulse width is calculated based on the mass airflow signal, engine speed signal, a read-out first coefficient and a read-out second coefficient which are dependent on the mass airflow-signal, the engine speed signal and the throttle angle signal.

  • Patent number: 4651694
    Abstract: A system having two look-up tables, one of which is for high idle speed in a first state of a motor vehicle after starting the engine thereof and before depression of the accelerator pedal, and the other of which is for low idle speed in a second state after the accelerator pedal is depressed. The idle speed in the first state is set faster than the second state so as to provide fast idling.

  • Patent number: 4628883
    Abstract: A feedback air-fuel ratio control system for an internal combustion engine has an O.sub.2 -sensor for detecting the concentration of oxygen in exhaust gases of the engine, a coolant temperature sensor, and a circuit for disabling the feedback control operation at a low coolant temperature during warming-up of the engine. The feedback control system is also disabled when the engine is rapidly accelerated or decelerated, even if the engine is warming-up at coolant temperatures greater than the low coolant temperature state.

  • Patent number: 4619235
    Abstract: An air-fuel control system for an automotive engine which keeps the engine idling speed at a predetermined value. In the system, engine idling state is determined by signals from an idle-switch, and a neutral switch provided in a transmission. When the number of peaks of the fluctuating feedback signal of a feedback control circuit exceeds a predetermined value, the feedback signal is fixed to a predetermined value, so that air-fuel ratio is fixed to a value, thereby keeping the idling speed to a constant value.

  • Patent number: 4068632
    Abstract: An internal combustion engine has a vacuum spark timing control system to advance and retard the spark in which the spark is kept retarded until a predetermined time passes after the engine speed exceeds a predetermined reference engine speed that demarcates the high engine speed range from the low engine speed range operations. During the low engine speed range operation the spark is retarded, while during the high engine speed range operation, the spark is advanced.
