|20130082134||Document Processing Apparatus Component, Document Processing Apparatus Assembly and Method for Operating the Same - A component is disclosed. The component includes a base member having an upper surface and a lower surface and a substantially tubular member attached to and extending away from the upper surface of the base member. The substantially tubular member includes a body formed by an outer surface, an inner surface, an upper lip surface connecting the outer surface to the inner surface and a document landing surface. The body includes a thickness (T) extending between the outer surface and the inner surface. The document landing surface is connected to the inner surface. The inner surface and the document landing surface define a cavity extending through a portion of a length (L) of the body. An assembly is also disclosed.||04-04-2013|
|20130075970||Double Document Detection Apparatus and a Method for Conducting the Same - An apparatus is disclosed. The apparatus includes a document processor and electronics connected to the document processor. The electronics includes a document sensor system and means for determining a document processing situation of a plurality of document processing situations. The document sensor system is connected to the means. The plurality of document processing situations include a single document situation and a double document situation. The double document situation includes a partially-overlapped, double document situation and a completely overlapped, double document situation. A method is also disclosed.||03-28-2013|
|20130066799||Transporting Currency - A currency handling system includes a safe at a first location. The safe seals received currency in a tamper evident container before allowing access to the container. The container includes a container body defining a mouth providing access to an inner volume having variable height. The inner volume has a length and width sized to receive and hold currency in a stacked arrangement. The container also includes an information storage device disposed on the container body and a closure fastener disposed on at least one of the mouth and a side wall of the container body for holding the mouth in a permanently closed state, preventing non-destructive access to the inner volume of the container body. The currency handling system also includes a secure deposit system at a second location configured to receive the sealed container.||03-14-2013|
|20120278208||Transporting Currency - A method of handling currency includes receiving currency into a safe at a first location. The safe is configured to count and store currency. The method further includes receiving a withdrawal request for an amount of currency stored in the safe. In response to the withdrawal request, the safe deposits the requested amount of currency into a container, associates information with the container, seals the container, and after sealing the container, allows retrieval of the container (e.g., from the safe). The method includes retrieving the sealed container, transporting the sealed container to a second location, and receiving the sealed container in a secure deposit system at the second location.||11-01-2012|
|20120278207||Transporting Currency - A method of handling currency includes receiving currency into a safe at an origination location. The safe is configured to count and store currency. The method further includes receiving a withdrawal request for an amount of currency stored in the safe. In response to the withdrawal request, the safe deposits the requested amount of currency into a container, associates information with the container, seals the container, and after sealing the container, allows retrieval of the container (e.g., from the safe). The method includes retrieving the sealed container, transporting the sealed container to a destination location, and receiving the sealed container in a secure deposit system at the destination location.||11-01-2012|
|20120217695||Document Processing Apparatus, Assembly and Sub-Assembly and Method for Operating the Same - A sub-assembly of a document processor that routes at least one document from an input hopper, along a document path and to an output bin is disclosed. The document processor includes a flag movably-arranged within the input hopper to/from a closed orientation and an open orientation; a rod fixed to and extending from the flag, wherein the rod includes an outer surface; a cam member including a camming surface, wherein the camming surface is communicatively-coupled to the outer surface of the rod; a driven shaft connected to the cam member, wherein the cam member further includes a one-way clutch, wherein the driven shaft extends through the one-way clutch; and a feed motor connected to the driven shaft. A method for operating the sub-assembly is also disclosed.||08-30-2012|
|20120194876||Document Reader Including a Positioning and Retention System - A document scanner is disclosed. The document scanner includes a document bed having a document positioning surface. The document bed has a plurality of perforations therethrough. The document scanner also includes a fan mounted to the document bed on a side opposite the document positioning surface and oriented to draw air through the perforations of the document bed. A method of use of the document scanner, and a particular check scanner are disclosed as well.||08-02-2012|
