This device is called the “Double Shutter”
The “double shutter” consists of:
Two thick metal sections of a suitable shape
A part supporting the devices and to allow fixing to the ATM.
A motorised moving part which, when open, does not obstruct the natural passage of the banknotes to be dispensed while, when closed, obstructs the external/internal passage of the safe even if the external components and internal mechanisms for transporting the banknotes to be dispensed are disengaged.
The movable part of the double shutter which obstructs the external/internal passage of the safe is constructed in anti-flame austenitic steel.
Description of the motorised “Double Shutter”
This system involves the motorisation of the open/close part of the “Double Shutter”.
The double shutter will open immediately when required in order to allow the banknotes requested by the Customer to pass through automatically at the end of the cash withdrawal operation.
More specifically, no direct passage between the internal and external parts of the safe is left free as the double shutter is closed and remains closed while the “shutter” is open. In some ATMs, the double shutter has to reopen to allow the mechanisms to return to their initial position. In this case, when the shutter is closed, the double shutter reopens for the time necessary to allow the mechanism to pass and then closes again immediately.
The controls are given by a designated independent electronic circuit board which does not interfere with the ATM operation.
No modification to the ATM software or mechanical system is required.
The dispensing time of the ATM is not increased in any way.
The double shutter is available for ATMS of the following brands: NCR – Wincor – Diebold, Sigma and Fujitsu
