Tech/Engineering - Finance (general) / Banknotenzähler
English term or phrase: no calls
This is from a description of a note counter (Banknotenzähler) under 'Features':

"Each note that needs operator attention is presented as the top note in the stacker. Challenged notes include suspected counterfeits, no calls and notes of wrong denomination (strangers)."

Die vermeintlichen gefälschten Geldscheine und Banknoten mit anderen Nennwerten sind mir klar, aber was bedeutet "no calls"?

Danke im Voraus.

"One problem encountered in currency recognition and counting systems of the above-described kind is the difficulty involved in interrupting (for a variety of reasons) and resuming the scanning and counting procedure as a stack of bills is being scanned. If a particular currency recognition unit (CRU) has to be halted in operation due to a "major" system error, such as a bill being jammed along the transport path, there is generally no concern about the outstanding transitional status of the overall recognition and counting process. However, where the CRU has to be halted due to a "minor" error, such as the identification of a scanned bill as being a counterfeit (based on a variety of monitored parameters which are not pertinent to the present disclosure) or *a "no call" (a bill which is not identifiable as belonging to a specific currency denomination based on the plurality of stored master patterns and/or other criteria),* it is desirable that the transitional status of the overall recognition and counting process be retained so that the CRU may be restarted without any effective disruptions of the recognition/counting process."


"If the bill can not be called as a specific denomination under the optical test, a no call code is issued such as at step 506 in FIG"



I googled around for a while and it seems that "no call bills" are bills whose determination cannot be determined by the machine. Perhaps "nicht identifizierbare Geldscheine"?

Sorry, "determination" was supposed to be "denomination".

By the way, to me, "vermeintlich" implies that the bills are only thought to be counterfeit but are actually real.

  -> "zuzuordnen" ist gut. Ich war bei "zuordenbar", aber das klingt so seltsam (auch, wenn es laut Duden eigentlich korrekt ist) ... :-)
