1.1. What is a Tempus III


A Tempus III is an electronic apparatus that sells time and impulses. The practical applications of a Tempus III are the on/off control of different apparatus such as: control of televisions and carwashes in time sale mode and photocopiers in impulse sale mode.

The Tempus III controls the external mechanisms that it regulates by activating and deactivating relays, which will operate in one way or another depending on the configuration and programming of the apparatus. These can respond both to internal signals (credits, clock period, etc.) and to external signals (consumption, activation, input, etc.) so it has countless applications. The Tempus III timers have the following features: Great prog ramming versatility, providing infinite uses. Admission of any type of coins of legal tender. Use the selector AZKOYEN NN6. Display showing the time, number of services or credits available. Accounting of the amount in pesetas that the apparatus has received (without resetting) Consumption detector (adjustable) in output making it possible to stop the time when there is no charge.

2.2.3. Mechanical specifications


As described above the selector admits all coins of legal tender and has the capacity to validate up to 15 different types. It can be used for coins of any country after this has been factory-programmed. The dimensions of the possible coins admitted by the selector must be between the margins specified in the following table:

Diameter: Thickness: Minimum Maximum 17.5mm 32mm 1.2mm 3.3mm

2.2.4. Operating conditions


To achieve optimum operation of the apparatus a series of basic requirements must be satisfied with respect to where the Tempus III is installed and how it is fitted. These are the following: Inclination margin: Temperature margin: 3 in all the axes. Operation: Storage: +5 to + 55C. -25 to +70C

Humidity margin: Maximum 95% (Relative humidity without condensation).

AZKOYEN

PAYMENT MEANS

2.2.5. Component operation and description


The selector operates by measuring a series of typical parameters of each coin, which will determine whether it is admitted or rejected. The diameter of the coin is measured by means of two photodiodes and two phototransistors and the electrical conductivity and magnetic field permeability are determined using two coils with ferrite cores (which are very sensitive to magnetic variations).

Ferrite core

Photocells

Once all the parameters have been obtained, these are compared with the ones that have been programmed earlier in the selector microprocessor memory during one of the manufacturing phases. This programming is carried out using a set of coins of legal tender that include all the existing models in circulation. Thus the selector will determine the validity or nullity of the coin inserted and will direct it towards the coin bin or towards the return box.

The main elements that comprise the NN6 selector and which are essential for its operation are described below:

AZKOYEN

TEMPUS III 2.2.5.1. Terminal strip and rockers

- 13 -

The aim of the terminal strip and the input rocker is to dampen the free fall of the coin, slowing down its entry, thus preventing it from entering the selector in an irregular fashion, bouncing, and achieving a suitable uniform and rotation movement on the plastic bar situated next to the terminal strip. The lower rocker is fitted to stabilise the coin speed coming out of the selector, slowing it down and getting it to come out in the most adequate fashion.

Input rocker

Terminal strip

Photocells Plastic bar

Outlet rocker

2.2.5.2. Photocells of the housing and the hinge


Two photodiodes are located in the hinge, which are perfectly aligned with the two phototransistors placed in the housing. The photodiodes emit an infrared light beam, which the phototransistors receive. When the coin enters the selector it crosses and cuts the infrared light beam. Depending on how long it takes for the coin to cut both light beams, the selector is able to determine the diameter of the coin in question.

AZKOYEN

- 14 2.2.5.3. Ferrite cores

PAYMENT MEANS

The selector has two face-to-face coils with ferrite core. One is installed in the hinge and the other in the housing. These ferrite cores create a magnetic field, which, when crossed by a coin, causes variations in the frequency, permitting the selector to measure the electrical conductivity and magnetic field permeability.

Ferrite cores

Anti-return system

2.2.5.4. Anti-return system


The function of the anti-return system is to prevent the coin from re-entering the selector once it has been admitted. This system prevents frauds produced by attaching a thread to the coin.

2.2.5.5. Obturator unit


This element is used to direct the coins to the right outlet. It is comprised of a coil, which is activated when the coins are admitted, freeing the outlet towards the coin bin and which remains inactive when it rejects them so that they come out towards the recovery box.

Coil

Coin outlet

Photocell

2.2.5.6. Outlet photocell


The valid coins that have come out correctly, cut the infrared light beam established between the photodiode and the phototransistor located on the lower part of the selector, in the outlet area for admitted coins. This is exactly when the selector determines the authenticity of the coin..

PAYMENT MEANS

2.2.7. Cleaning and maintenance of the NN6 selector


The only maintenance that the NN6 selector requires depends on how soiled the coins are, as this can obstruct its optical elements. If the coins have to be inserted several times before being accepted this is an unmistakable sign that the selector has accumulated dirt on its photodiodes or phototransistors and has to be cleaned.

The cleaning must be done with 96 ethyl alcohol. Products containing benzene hydrocarbons must not be used, as they would produce a rapid degradation of the plastic, which in turn would cause irreparable damage to the selector.

Before cleaning, the two parts of the selector, housing and hinge, must be separated it. Then, using a brush (fine vegetable fibre bristles, never metal ones) impregnated in alcohol, clean the areas where the photodiodes and phototransistors are located, in order to completely clean the holes where these are located. After the cleaning process, in order for the selector to operate correctly, it must be left to dry at room temperature for twelve hours (a household dryer can also be used for 10 minutes).

2.3. Control card + power supply


The control card + power supply is responsible for receiving and transmitting data from the external device to the selector and vice-versa. It includes the power supply (transformer, rectifier, stabiliser and filter), which is used to supply the selector, the display card and clock card (an accessory used for applications where a clock in real time is required). It has several connectors for its relative connection. The control relays of the outlet device and the accounting and programming control pushbuttons are installed in it, as well as the fuses necessary to protect all the elements of the Tempus III.

2.3.2. Output relays


The K1 relay is used to control the charge as with its contacts it connects and disconnects the supply voltage to the connector pins (to the charge) and it is able to control up to 6A. A consumption sensor has been installed on this relay, which enables a pause to be made in the time discount when it detects that there is no consumption in the outlet. It has a 6A protection fuse. The K2 relay is also a control relay with the contacts towards the outside, able to control up to 6A and protected with a fuse. But, unlike the K1 there is no potential in its terminals. The connection or disconnection of its terminals will depend on the operating mode programmed in the selector microswitches and on the application for which it is going to be used. K1

2.3.3. Consumption sensor


The consumption sensor is used to stop the time discount when the system detects that the charge is not in operation. It operates with the charge connected to the K1 relay and it can be adjusted by means of a potentiometer.

In order for the consumption sensor to operate it must be enabled by programming.

If, once the consumption sensor has been enabled, the charge apparatus does not work correctly; it will have to be adjusted. To do this, it must be taken into account that the luminous indicator (Led diode) of the control Led card + power supply must stay off when the charge is not activated and must light up when this is connected. If it does not do so, the consumption sensor must be adjusted with Potentiometer potentiometer R16 (using a fine flat screwdriver) until the luminous indicator behaves as described.

3.3. Timer operating mode A


The timer operating mode A comprises the sale of a time period of between 1 minute and 100 hours (99 hours and 59 minutes).

3.3.1. Description and general characteristics


This operating mode of the Tempus III is used for applications where the services require times of several minutes or even hours. Therefore, the Tempus III must be programmed with the value of the price/hour of the service and it will be responsible for supplying the time corresponding to the credit inserted, providing this is the same as or greater than the minimum coin insertion (which is a programmable amount). When the credit reaches the minimum coin insertion value programmed, the timer activates relays K1 and K2 simultaneously and they stay activated until the time granted has been totally discounted.

The main characteristics, which indicate the functionality of this working mode, are: Unitary inhibition of all the coins, programmable by the user. Direct viewing of the accounting. Programming the luminous intensity of the display. Possibility of programming two different price tariffs, which can be changed d epending on the time or through an outside input. Display of the time remaining, making the discount every minute with the last m inute blinking on and off. Possibility of erasing the accumulated time. Programming time for tests without this affecting the accounting. Possibility of detaining the time discount if the outside apparatus is not operating (e xcept in 24 and 48 hour modes). Programming the minimum credit insertion required for the first time period granted.

The most normal use is to change the tariff depending on the time (carrying out two different timetables or creating the usual "happy hour"). To do this there is an accessory called clock card, which provides the Tempus III with the real time and permits the user to program a time interval each day, which can be used either to offer a free daily service or to use the second tariff (for further information about the clock card see accessories section). The tariff change can also be carried out by using an outside input, which will shortcircuit pins 2 and 3 of connector JP5 of the control card + power supply When tariff 1 is changed to tariff 2, or the other way round, and the apparatus is carrying out a service, this service will be affected by more or less time depending on the sales prices of tariffs 1 and 2.

3.3.2.6. Operation in 24 and 48 hour mode: The Tempus III has two special operating modes, which consist of 24 or 48

hour sale.
The 24 or 48 hour operating mode can be programmed by the user, so that when the credit inserted it is sufficient to activate either of the two modes, the Tempus III will grant 24 or 48 hours' operation (depending on the credit) with uninterrupted time discount regardless of whether the outside apparatus is operating or not. With only two exceptions: If the JP3 in put is activated. (Stoppage of outside discount). If it is on free clock period. (Stoppage due to free service). The margin of time between when the coin is inserted and when the time discount starts is 15 seconds. Thus the credit necessary to grant 24 or 48 hours can be reached, without the time discount starting during the coin insertion interval. If the 24 or 48 hours are granted and more credit is inserted, the time granted under normal tariff will be discounted after the period of 24 or 48 hours.

3.3.2.7. Maximum time that can be supplied: When the apparatus shows the maximum time: 99.59 hours, on the display, it will not take any more coins, and these will be rejected by the selector and sent to the recovery box.

99.59
3.3.2.8. Minimum coin insertion: A minimum credit insertion can be programmed on the Tempus III for the first period of time granted, so that until that credit is reached, the display will show 00.00 and will not activate the output relays.

3.7. Photocopier control operating mode B


The operation in photocopier control mode B consists in the sale of impulses, which activate the setting up of the charge. The impulse will end when confirmation is obtained of the end of each service by means of outside input.

3.7.1. Description and general characteristics


This operating mode of the Tempus III is used for applications where on/off impulses of an indefinite time are required until the conclusion of a specific service. Therefore the Tempus III requires information about the conclusion of the service, so that it can discount it from the accumulated value that appears on the display and stop the setting up of the charge whilst this signal lasts. The service price value will have to be programmed in the Tempus III and it will be responsible for supplying the impulses depending on the credit inserted, ending when confirmation is obtained of the execution of the last service. When the credit reaches the programmed service price value, the Tempus III activates relays K1 and K2 simultaneously and remains so until it receives the end of service signal, which will deactivate them for 100 milliseconds, activating them again if it has credit remaining. The main characteristics, which indicate the functionality of this working mode are: Viewing on the screen of the credit available. Unitary inhibition of all the coins, programmable by the user. Direct viewing of the accounting. Possibility of using two different price tariffs, which are changed by means of o utside input. Different service discount inputs depending on the tariff used.
