COMMISSIONING
After being installed and configured, the automatic pay station requires some operations
before being put into service.
1. Loading the paper roll;
2. Loading the Hopper (800 pieces max);
3. Loading the banknote dispenser (1,000 pieces max);
CONTROLLER AUTOMATIC PAY STATION - USER MANUAL

2.
EXPLANATION OF FUNCTIONS
All the functions of the automatic pay station are explained below.
2.1
COLLECTION FROM SINGLE-STAY USERS
Insert the ticket in the slot (on the left, the second one from the top). A picture appears
indicating, at the top, the amount payable and, at the bottom, the types of coins and
banknotes which can be used for paying. (For use of the value coupon, see chapter 2.2).
The types of money crossed out cannot be temporarily used for paying - these are the
reasons why this can happen:
1. according to "maximum change dispensing", the pay station will not accept the largest
denominations. Example: maximum change dispensing = 10 euros (configurable); stay
amount = 5 euros; banknote denominations of over 10 euros are not acceptable, and,
therefore, they will be crossed out, as they would dispense more than 10 euros
change;
2. mixed cash box absent;
3. the pay station cannot return the money if the operation is cancelled:
-
because the hoppers are empty
-
because the hoppers are absent;
4. the banknotes may not be usable because the banknote reader is out of service;
5. coins normally directed to the mixed cash box may be unusable because the mixed
cash box is absent, or because the cash reserves are insufficient to execute the
"cancel operation" command: the mixed cash box does not have any channels leading
to the change tray, or, even if the reserves are sufficient, the change-giver units are
partly or totally out of service.
6. a certain type of coin or banknote may not be usable because the monetary reserves
are insufficient to give the change, or because, although the reserves may be
sufficient, the change-giver units are partly or totally out of service.
Whenever a coin or banknote is inserted, the video picture is updated, in order to show
the remaining amount to be paid. Even the coins or banknotes which are temporarily
disabled, can vary for the reasons we mentioned above.
CONTROLLER AUTOMATIC PAY STATION - USER MANUAL
5
When all the payment money has been inserted, the automatic pay station prints the exitticket in record time (ticket valid as receipt).
After the ticket has been collected, the automatic pay station starts giving any change, and
the amount of change is displayed.
When the collection operation has finished, the automatic pay station is ready for a new
collection.
2.2
USE OF VALUE COUPON
The value coupon is a barcode ticket issued by the manned cash-desk. A value which can
be used as a discount is coded and printed on the ticket. The value coupon can be used
only for payments referring to single-stay tickets, made at the automatic pay station or at
the manned cash-desk.
Before beginning to collect, the automatic pay station shows the user a video picture
displaying the ticket to be inserted.
The user must insert the value coupon in the slot (on the left, the second from the top, the
same one used for tickets). When the validity of the coupon has been verified, a picture is
shown indicating the value of the coupon, presented as a discount.
The value coupon is retained inside the automatic pay station. If the operation is
cancelled, a copy of the coupon is printed and is returned to the user from the slot used
for issuing tickets.
The procedure continues with the insertion of the ticket as described in chapter 2.1. The
only difference is that the stay amount is discounted by the value of the inserted coupon.
Note : One value coupon only can be used for every payment, and no change will be
given for partially used coupons.

the word "RECHARGE".
An image is displayed at this point. At the top: the credit currently present on the card: At
the bottom: the types of coins and banknotes which may be used.
As the money is inserted, the amount of credit displayed is updated, as are the types of
coins and banknotes which are temporarily disabled.
To stop the recharge, press the "CONFIRM RECHARGE" push-button .
At this point, a picture appears asking the user if s/he requires a receipt.

USING UP SET-VALUE CARDS
Payment can be made by using all the residual credit on the card, i.e.using it up, and the
remaining amount may be added in coins or banknotes, only if the card is recorded as
having entered the park and has no sufficient credit to pay for the stay.
After inserting the card, the user can begin the operation by pressing the push-button next
to the word "USING UP". At this point the payment screen appears.
After payment, a picture asks the user if s/he requires a receipt.
The card is re-coded as a coin card with record time, i.e. it must exit within record time and
will be retained by the exit columns.

CANCELLING AN "OPERATION"
Cancelling an operation entails:
-
2.6
return of ticket or card;
return of coins inserted;
return of banknotes (only for banknote readers with Escrow capability);
return of replacement ticket (in case of a banknote reader without Escrow
capability, or if there are no hoppers, or if out of service for coins);
money not dispensed due to cancelled operation is recorded on the end-of-shift
report
OPENING OF FRONT DOOR
When the front door has been opened, the dialogue window appears, asking the operator
to identify himself/herself by inputting a name (username) which is used to distinguish one
operator from another: one could, for example, use the operator's first name.
When the operator has input the name, s/he must also input a password which serves to
obtain access to the automatic pay station functions reserved for authorised operators.
The password is input through a second dialogue window. When the operator has input
the password, the main menu of functions reserved for the operator is displayed.
The operator has a set time (configurable) for typing in the current data. If the time
elapses, the automatic pay station activates a signal which can be connected to an alarm
This alarm is disabled when the correct data are input.

COLLECTION IN CASE OF LOST TICKET
The lost ticket is assigned a set amount (configurable).
To perform this operation, open the front door of the automatic pay station - "TICKET
MANAGEMENT".
"LOST TICKET". When this option has been selected, a collection as explained in Section
2.1 will occur. In this operation, the amount will be the set amount mentioned above.
2.9
FILLING AND EMPTYING THE HOPPER UNIT
The coin reserves are automatically refilled by the coins used for payments. However, if
the flow of coins at entry payment is lower than the flow for giving change at exit, the
operator must carry out a filling operation.
2.9.1
FILLING THE HOPPER
Select the following in sequence from the menu:
• "ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES"
• "CASH RESERVE MANAGEMENT"
• "HOPPER FILLING": in the dialogue window that follows, you can introduce the number
of pieces you wish to add to the hopper's current reserve (800 max)
With the filling operation, the typed in quantity will be added to the number of coins in the
hopper before this procedure was begun.
Example: the hopper contains 50 pieces, 600 pieces are refilled, at the end of the
operation the pay station considers a content of 650 pieces.
CONTROLLER AUTOMATIC PAY STATION - USER MANUAL

The following further operations are necessary to materially refill the hopper:
• open the hopper cover with the lock on the cover;
• introduce the quantity of coins as declared on the dialogue window;
• re-position plate B of Figure 1, pressing the forks of the mechanical key C on points A
(two springs shift plate B to the right):
• close the cover with the lock;
• put the hopper back into its seat inside the automatic
pay station;
ATTENTION: the hopper case cannot be replaced in
its seat if plate B of Figure 1 is not re-located on the
right.
When the door is closed, the automatic pay station
automatically prints a cash statement indicating the
modifications made to the monetary reserves.

• you can then input (in a further window) the number of pieces present in the hopper
you are about to insert.
With the replacement operation, the typed in quantity will replace the number of coins in
the hopper before this procedure was begun.
Example: the hopper contains 50 pieces, 600 pieces are replaced, at the end of the
operation the pay station considers a content of 600 pieces.
The following further operations are necessary to materially replace the hopper:
• release the guide at top right of the central compartment, and remove the compartment;
• remove the hopper you wish to replace, pulling it with force;
• re-insert the hopper back in its seat inside the automatic pay station;
When the door is closed, the automatic pay station automatically prints a cash statement
indicating the modifications made to the monetary reserves.

CASH STATEMENT
2.22.1
STRUCTURE OF STATEMENT
Whenever an operator carries out an operation which varies the automatic pay station's
monetary reserves, when the front door is closed, the pay station automatically prints the
cash statement, i.e. an automatic printout summarising the automatic pay station's current
monetary situation.
A cash statement begins with the following information:
•
•
•
•
•
Cdesk No.
From:
To:
Statement No.
Operator ID:
the number of the cash-desk which produced the statement;
the date of the immediately previous statement;
the printing date of the statement;
the sequential number of the statement;
the name (not the password) input by the operator when opening the
front door.
The cash statement also contains the following information:
2.22.2
2.22.2.1
CASH MOVEMENTS
BANKNOTE READER
2.22.2.1.1 Previous quantity:
this value indicates the amount of cash in the banknote reader's final safe, before the front
door is opened. It is appropriately increased whenever - at the end of a payment operation
- the collected banknotes are transferred from the escrow facility to the final safe and the
amount is reset, after the statement is printed, if the operator had withdrawn cash from
the banknote reader's safe. It is assumed that every withdrawal operation from the
safe must entail emptying the safe.
2.22.2.1.2 Current quantity:
this value indicates the amount of cash in the banknote reader's final safe, after the front
door was closed. It is appropriately increased whenever - at the end of a payment
operation - the collected banknotes are transferred to the final safe. It is reset, before the
statement is printed, if the operator had withdrawn cash from the banknote reader's safe.
CONTROLLER AUTOMATIC PAY STATION - USER MANUAL
25
2.22.2.1.3 Movements:
this value is calculated as follows:
Current Quantity less Previous Quantity
therefore, if an emptying operation was carried out, it indicates, with a minus sign, the
amount of money withdrawn from the safe.
2.22.2.1.4 Statistical counters of inserted banknotes:
here one can see the amount collected for each type of banknote accepted for payment.
These data may be used to give an indication of users' payment habits. These counters
are increased whenever - after a payment operation - the collected banknotes are
transferred to the final safe.
They are reset after every statement is printed.
2.22.2.2
COIN CHANGE-GIVER
2.22.2.2.1 Previous quantity:
this value is initially zero, but is changed to the value of the Current quantity, after the
statement is printed.
2.22.2.2.2 Current quantity:
this value is reduced whenever a coin exits a hopper, and is increased whenever a coin
going to the hopper in question is read, unless the hopper is full or absent. In this case,
the read coin is sent to the mixed cash box. As we said in Section 2.9, the current quantity
can be re-written by a replacement operation, or a value can be added to it by a manual
filling operation.
2.22.2.2.3 Movements:
this value is calculated as follows:
Current Quantity less Previous Quantity
2.22.2.2.4 Statistical counters of dispensed coins:
here one can see the amount dispensed for each type of coin dispensed as change.
These data may be used, together with the Statistical counters of inserted coins, to
obtain indications on the emptying speed of the different hoppers. These counters are
increased whenever a coin exits from a hopper and are reset after every statement is
printed.

2.22.2.3
MIXED CASH BOX
2.22.2.3.1 Previous quantity:
this value indicates the amount of money in the mixed cash box before the front door is
opened. It is suitably increased whenever a coin is sent to the mixed cash box. It is reset,
after the statement is printed, if the operator had withdrawn cash from the mixed cash
box. It is assumed that every withdrawal operation from the mixed cash box must
entail emptying the safe.
2.22.2.3.2 Current quantity:

INFO PRINT
The actual cash statement is produced automatically, when the front door is closed, if the
operator had in some way varied the monetary reserves.
However, the same information contained in the statement can be obtained through a
specific command. This command generates a printout with a structure that is identical to
a statement, but which is managed differently from the statement for the following
reasons:
• the printout has a sequential number following the number of the last generated
statement, and this number does not change until the next statement is produced;
• none of the reset operations mentioned in the previous Section is carried out after the
print.
For the above reasons, this print, although it contains the same information as the
statement, cannot be defined as a statement and is therefore named Info printout.
These are the steps for obtaining an info print:
• from the main menu, select option "ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES";
• select option "INCOME REPORT":
2.24
CASH STATEMENT REPRINT
This function is used if a statement is lost. These are the steps for obtaining a reprint of
the statement:
• from the main menu, select option "ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES": a second menu
will appear;
• select option "REPRINT INCOME REPORT": a window appears enabling you to input
the number of the statement to be reprinted. If you press "ENTER" without typing in a
number, a dialogue window appears enabling you - by using the "UP ARROW" and
"DOWN ARROW" keys - to view all the statements, and to select the one you require
with "ENTER".
• When you have selected the number, press the "INS" key and the document is printed.
