Abstract (en)

Abstract (de)

Geldwechsler für Münzautomaten mit Umstellmöglichkeit von einer nationalen auf die Euro-Währung. Am Umbautag wird der Geldwechsler für die Einsortierung von Münzen nationaler Währung gesperrt. Die Tuben zur Speicherung der nationalen Münzen werden geleert und mit Euro-Münzen gefüllt. Außerdem wird der gesamte Geldwechsler für die Annahme von Euro-Münzen vorbereitet, die jedoch vor einem Stichtag noch nicht in Verkehr sind. Am Stichtag erfolgt die Initiierung der Geldwechselfunktion in Euro, wobei noch anzunehmende nationale Münzen auf Euro-Basis umgerechnet werden. Die Initiierung der entsprechenden Maßnahmen am Stichtag kann mit Hilfe eines Zeitgebers oder eines Ereignisses, das durch das Einwerfen von Euro-Münzen hervorgerufen werden kann, eingeleitet werden. Der Geldwechsler enthält eine Tubensperrfunktion, die auch wirksam ist unabhängig von dem Füllstand der Tuben. Die Sperrfunktion bleibt bis zum Stichtag in Kraft und wird aufgehoben am Stichtag, damit eine Wechselgeldausgabe in Euro stattfinden kann. <IMAGE>
