Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0708419A1] The system has a sorting device in which individual banknotes (100-103) are fed to a transport mechanism (30, 31) for feeding past a sensor device (20), which checks the category of each banknote, to feed it to the appropriate stacking point (50). A given number of banknotes are assembled at each stacking point, with the transfer of the banknotes to the transport mechanism halted when the given number is reached, until the assembled stack is removed and the stacking point is ready to receive the next set of banknotes.
