section 3.4.
Operations
21
Part One
NOTE: The ultraviolet and magnetic detection systems integrated in the AB-1100
(models UV and MG/UV only,) are valuable instruments that help the user verify the
legitimacy of bills. However, the AB-1100 (models UV and MG/UV only,) like all other
counters with integrated detectors found in the market, cannot guarantee the
legitimacy of any bill analyzed by it due to the unpredictable techniques or advances
that counterfeiters may introduce.
3.6 “ADD” Function
Addition can be performed by pressing the “ADD” button (indicator must light up). In this case,
removing the counted bills from the stacker will not clear the quantity counted and shown on the
screen. The next bills placed in the hopper will be counted and added to the preceding quantity. The
total amount of added bills will be shown on the Counter screen. To clear the count, press the “ADD”
button (the indicator must be OFF).
If the machine stops during the addition operation due to an error message, remove the cause of the
error. Remove the bills from the stacker and from the feeding rolls, if any. The unit will resume
counting after the problem has been solved.
3.7 Size Detection Function
This feature will allow you to detect bills shorter than the first one counted by the unit. Press down
the “ADD” button for 3 sec to activate it. You will notice that the batch window will display “C00C10”. To deactivate this feature press the “-” button until “C00” appears on the screen. To activate it
press the “+” button in the range of 01 to 10.
22
Operations
Part One
3.8 Bill Density Detection Function
This feature will allow you to detect bills thinner or older than the first one that is counted by the unit.
To activate it, press down the “Batch” button for 3 sec. You will notice that the batch window will display
“C00-C10”. To deactivate this feature press the “-” button until “C00” appears on the screen. To activate it
press the “+” button in the range of 01 to 10.
3.9 “BATCH” Function
The preset batch function can be selected or deselected by pressing the “Batch” button. The batch number
is indicated on the “Batch” display. By default, when pressing the “BATCH” button, the batch number is set
to “100”. By pressing it again, the batch number can be changed (to 50 the first time and to 20 the second
time). Custom batching can be set in amounts between 1 and 999. The custom quantity can be set by
pressing the “+”or “-” buttons. Pressing the “+” or “-” buttons for more than 0.5 sec. will cause the set
number to increase or decrease, 5 units at a time, every 0.25 sec. Pressing the “+” or “-” buttons with
single and fast strokes will cause them to increase or decrease 1 by 1. To clear this function, press the
“BATCH” button until the indicator is OFF.
Once the hopper is loaded, the machine will start counting and will stop when the counted quantity reaches
the preset batch quantity (batch counting only).
To repeat the batch counting operation under the same preset batch quantity, just remove the counted bills
from the stacker. The unit will batch the next group of bills under the same settings.
If you wish to keep batching without removing the bills from the stacker, press the RESTART button.
If the counted number does not tally with the preset number, the counter will show the counted quantity
with a blinking number.
When counting with the detection modes MG and/or UV enabled (AB-1100 UV and/or AB-1100 MG/UV
models, only), the machine will stop automatically when detecting counterfeit currency. The counting
Operations
23
Part One
function can be resumed by removing the bills from the stacker. The number on the counter display
will include the dubious bill.
3.10 Emergency Stop Feature
The AB-1100 Series is equipped with an emergency
stop feature which protects the user in the event that
unintended objects (e.g. neckties, scarves, etc) reach
the feeding friction rollers. This fully automatic feature
works by means of a sensor that measures the
resistance on the feeding friction rollers. If the
resistance increases beyond the parameters of normal
bill counting, the counting operation is stopped.
In the event of an emergency, this feature can be
activated manually by depressing the red Emergency
Stop Button located on the upper left side of the
machine. The button has a red LED indicator that blinks
when the function is ON. Once ON, the unit will show
the message “EA7” on the batch number display. Once
the Emergency Stop feature is activated, all operations
will be canceled. The machine must be turned OFF; the
foreign objects removed, and turned back ON to
continue the bill counting operations.
