KELLY SYSTEMS CASH SECURE PNEUMATIC TUBE SYSTEM

Division 14 - Conveying Systems
Pneumatic Tube Systems - Section 14580

PART 1 - GENERAL


1.1 SUMMARY

A. This section of the specification includes the design, furnishing and installation of a complete KellyTube Cash Secure Pneumatic Tube System, as specified herein and shown on the drawings including supervision of field wiring associated with the work of this section.

B. The System(s) specified herein shall be complete and shall not require any additional support equipment or utilities other than electrical.

C. All work of this section shall be performed in accordance with the contract documents.

1.2 SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

A. The KellyTube Cash Secure Pneumatic Tube System shall be 2.25", 3", 4", 6", 8" and 4"x7" oval (as required). Aluminum single tube vacuum/pressure type, as manufactured by Kelly Systems, Inc. of Chicago, IL and shall provide dedicated service between designated stations. Stations shall be located in the following areas as shown on the drawings, with service as follows:

VAULT/CASH ROOM TO AND FROM

B. Carrier transmission is accomplished by a central power unit which shifts between vacuum and pressure operating modes. The central power unit shall be free-standing type which is located in the Vault/Cash Room or can also be located remote from the central station.

C. The System is designed for operation only while a carrier is in transit between stations, and when carriers have been queued for dispatch, all controlled by the PC computer. The System is designed to transport one carrier per operating cycle at an average speed of 25 feet per second.

D. To dispatch a Carrier from a Sub Station, open the Station Door and place the Carrier on the Station Pad. Depress the Send Pushbutton, then close and latch the Station Door. Vacuum will then propel the carrier to the Central Vault Station, after which the system will automatically turn off. If the System is in use when a dispatch is desired, the Cashier may still initiate a transaction as described above, and the System Computer will automatically dispatch the Carrier when the current transaction has completed.

E. To dispatch a Carrier from the Central Vault/Cash Station, open the Vault/Cash Station Door and place the Carrier on the Station Pad. Close and latch the terminal door, select the desired Sub Station from the destination menu on the Computer Monitor using the arrow keys, then press Enter. The Power Unit will dispatch the Carrier on pressure to the Sub Station and will then automatically turn off. The Real-Time details of the transaction are displayed on the Computer Monitor and are fully viewable by Vault Personnel during the transaction.

F. All Sub Stations are down-delivery full-access type, complete with reinforced polycarbonate door. The Doors are hinged and reinforced with a metal frame. All Sub Stations are key lockable and have an integral Send Pushbutton and Indicator Lights. Sub Stations can be wall, floor or counter mounted, and must maintain a clean appearance throughout.

G. The Kelly Systems Cash Secure Pneumatic Tube System is fully expandable with the addition of Diverters and Stations without requiring modification or replacement of existing equipment or control software.

1.3 SYSTEM SOFTWARE DESIGN

A. The Control Software and System Features were designed based on the specific requirements for secure cash handling and monitoring. To this end, the System was specifically designed with an easy to use computer with a full color 15 inch monitor and keyboard. This provides a very understandable, menu driven operator interface, as well as, allowing for easy programming changes as needed or requested.

B. With a full 15 inch display Monitor in plain English, the display incorporates user hints of how to use the system, shows real time progress of transactions, and provides audible and bright color visual displays of system and user errors with instructions on how to correct these faults. (If the customer chooses to provide phone or internet connection to the P.C. then remote diagnostics and maintenance are possible.)

C. A large Usage History with time and date stamp and transaction details is incorporated in the Software. Due to the sometimes critical nature of transaction details, the Software automatically stores and maintains full information for the last 10,000 transactions. This Transaction History can be displayable on the screen or output to a printer and can be set to print any selectable Transaction range.

D. The System will queue transaction requests from all Sub Stations. When the System is busy with a current transaction, a Sub Station or multiple Sub Stations may still initiate their own transactions which the Software will monitor. As a transaction completes, the Software will automatically begin the next transaction, initiating each queue in the sequence in which they were entered. Due to the importance of Vault/Cash Room transactions, the Vault/Cash Room may interrupt the queued sequence with a priority dispatch. When the Vault/Cash transaction is completed, the queued Carrier dispatches automatically resume.

E. A clock programmable System Purge is supplied to send any Carriers
inadvertently left in Sub Stations at closing time to the Vault/Cash Room Safe. Vault/Cash Room personnel can set the time they want this function performed (e.g. 1:00 AM) or may disable this function at their discretion.

F. The System Software also provides for a quick transition from the Day Mode to the Night Mode. When Vault/Cash Room personnel are present, the System is normally in a Day Mode which allows for Sending Carriers to the Sub Stations and Recieving carriers in the accessible Vault Station. When Vault Room personnel are not present, the System can be switched to protective Night Mode with the press of a button on the Keyboard. Carriers from the Sub Stations will then deliver into a locked Vault. A Password is then required to switch back to Day Mode which must be entered on the keyboard. This keeps unauthorized personnel from switching the Sytem from a protected Night Mode to Day Mode. A clock programmable Night Vault/Cash mode is incorporated in the Software to automatically switch the System to Night Mode at a predetermined time, in the event the last Vault/Casy personnel for the day forgets to do so.

G. A Carrier Present feature is included so that the Vault/Cash Personnel can easily see which Sub Stations have carriers present in them. This is helpful when a money till is called for, but not promptly removed from the Sub Station. The Vault/Cash personnel can see this and make a judgement as to whether to retreive this back to the Vault/Cash Room. The Retrieve function is controlled at the Vault/Cash Room so calling out to the Sub Station is unnecessary. This feature is also useful if the Vault/Cash innadvertently sends a carrier to the wrong Sub Station.

H. All Send/Receive Stations are equipped with non-contact highly reliable optical sensors. Thru beam infrared optics are highly reliable eliminating problems associated with mechanical contact switches.

I. All Send/Receive Stations are equipped with Key-Lockable Doors. This, together with the high strength polycarbonate doors allow visual recognition of a carriers presence, while affording strong theft protection.

J. Sub Stations can easily be disabled through the Software so that carriers can not be inadvertently or deliberately sent to inactive Sub Stations. Thru the menu driven configuration, the Vault/Cash Room can easily turn off a station that is not being used. This function is password protected.

K. The Software provides Purging of Stations or the entire System to check for Carriers. The System Maintenance Menu allows the Vault/Cash Room to Purge any Station individually, or all Stations sequentially. Either type of Purge can be cancelled at anytime. Station Purges can be done in either vacuum or pressure modes.

L. System diagnostics and maintenance are provided to insure all System equipment is operating properly. The System Maintenance Menu allows Vault/Cash personnel to position and operate Diverters, Blower, Air Shifter and Vault Shifter directly from the keyboard. These maintenance features are invaluable in serving maintenance needs over the phone. Diverters can also be moved with vacuum applied to clear Carriers that may get caught in Diverters. Again, these features are operated from the keyboard in the Vault/Cash Room.

a. All electrical components are connected with industry standard RJ45 networking for quick and easy connection of components. The data runs on U.S.standard 485 protocol. The System uses distributed 24 volt power so there is no need for 120 volt power supplied anywhere except in the Vault/Cash Room.

N. The System Software keeps track of transaction timing cycles. If a carrier is not delivered to a Sub Station or the Vault/Cash Station in the requisite time, the System will automatically apply more time and begin looking for the Carrier and any System errors. If the Carrier still does not reach its destination, an error alert will be displayed and an audible alarm will sound in the Vault/Cash Room. An error specific message will be displayed with error correction options for clearing the error. These messages are all displayed in clear, easy to understand English.
