recording key.
In the watchman’s recording system of the K
a record is made thereon at designated stations
which the watchman must visit during his rounds "
of inspection. Station keys are provided at these
designated stations, each key having a station
character thereon identifying the station visited.
The order of visits at the respective stations is
indicated upon the record strip by the staggered 40
series of entries thereon. The staggering of the
station records is automatically taken care of by
mechanism within the recording unit which
causes longitudinal advance of the record strip
each time a station recording key is used for 45
making a record and by the lateral displacement
effected because of the different positions of the
printing dies on di?erent station keys. The sys
tern contemplates the use of clock mechanism for
obtaining a time record upon the record strip
contained in the watchman’s portable recording
unit.
There may be one or more time control
ling units placed at desired stations along the
route a watchman is to inspect.
The time unit
may be placed either at the beginning or end of 55

a tour of inspection or at or between any selected
stations, and the watchman is required to make a
time record in the recording unit which he car
ries by inserting therein a time recording key
which is under the control of the time unit. This
at one end of the bearing socket in support 22.
A collar 35 is secured to casing 32 and serves
as an abutment for the other end of spring 34
and as an abutment for the shoulder 35 of
stepped crown member :3, so that when the key

key with the operating element 45 (Fig. 16) of
periods or" time during which the time recording
key will control the recording of a given time so
the time recording means. This causes the time
recording mechanism to be set up in accord
that changes may be made unknown to the
watchman and beyond his control.
ance with the particular step of the stepped
In the drawings, and particularly in Figs. 1, 2,
20 3, 4 and 11, we have illustrated a time recording
key Ill contained in a box or housing H which
has a removable cover 12, whereby the recording
key is accessible to the watchman for recording
purposes. The time controlled element i3 is ro
tated by a shaft I4 under the control of clock
mechanism i5 contained in a casing IS. The
housing I I and easing l6 are connected by a tube
H and the clock mechanism is completely en
closed so that unauthorized access to all mecha
30 nism contained therein, save only the business
crown which is opposite slot 45 in a manner to be
described hereafter.
The function of the stepped crown i3 is to set 20
recording indicia in the watchman’s portable re
cording unit. The recording of an indication
corresponding to the step of the stepped crown
i3 is brought about by the use 01’ stem 25 which
engages an actuating lever I24 (Fig. 16) con
tained in the watchman’s portable unit and
which will hereinafter be described. The recording key is so constructed that any shock
resulting from contact of the end of the stem
20 with the actuating lever is taken up by a 30
end of the recording key, is impossible of attain
ment. The casing of the clock mechanism is
preferably covered with a door i8 by which all
parts of the clock mechanism may be kept un
between a shoulder 39 of the support 22 and a
collar 40 upon stem 20. The stem. is otherwise
seen as well as inaccessible.
It will be observed that the construction oi the '
Suitable locks are
provided for all compartments with their keys
available at a supervisor’s oiilce.
The time recording element l3 of the time re~
cording key is a stepped crown provided in the
present instance with twelve steps, each corre
sponding to one hour of time, so that for every
twelve hours, the stepped crown will make one
complete revolution. The rate of rotation or the
number of steps upon the stepped crown may be
varied for obtaining records of time indications
for shorter or longer periods of time. For ex
ample, if one-half hour periods were used the
number of steps would be doubled for the same
rate of rotation of the crown.
The stepped member I3 is mounted for rota
tion upon a stem 20, journalled at 2| in the key
support 22.
Key support 22 provides a bearing
23 for a sleeve member 24 to which the stepped
crown member is is keyed at 25. The member
24 carries a pinion 26 engaging another pinion
21 carried by a shaft 28 mounted in bearings
contained in the upper portion of the recording
key housing II. The recording key support 22 is
pivotally mounted at 29 in line with the line of
contact between pinions 26 and 2'! so that the
recording key may be swung from within its
housing to the position illustrated in Fig. 4 for
enabling the watchman to engage the same with
the portable recording unit which he carries
spring 38 (Figs. 3 and 4) normally compressed
free to move longitudinally of the recording key.
time recording key is such as to discourage and
even prevent tampering therewith. To this end
the mounting of the key is protected by a guard
member 48 and a shield 49 so that pinions 26, 2?,
and associated shafts 28 and M, are out of reach. 40
Having reference to Figs. 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 1.0,
the upper end of shaft I4 is connected to a short
shaft 52 supported by a bracket 53. This shalt
carries an indicator wheel 54 having indicia cor
responding with the various steps upon the 45
stepped crown !3. Shaft 52 is under the control
of cam 54 and lever 55. Cam 54 is mounted upon
the hour hand arbor of clock mechanism i5 and
is so designated that it will raise lever 55 uni
formly and permit it to drop once for each revo 50
lution of the cam.
Lever 55 is mounted upon a
bearing pin 56 and its lower end has a ?nger 5'!
engaging a rocking member 58. This latter mem
ber is mounted for oscillation about shaft 52
and it carries a pawl 59 which engages ratchet 55
wheel 55 to advance shaft 52 each time lever 55
is permitted to fall by the passage of the high
part GI of the cam from under the lever. Clock
wise rotation of cam 54 causes the upper end of
the lever 55 to be raised and the lower end of the 60
lever 5'! to move from its right-hand position
(Figs. 6 and 8) to its left-hand position (Fig. 9).
and when the uper end of the lever is permitted
to fall, spring 62 draws the lower end 5'! of the
lever and moves member 58 from its left-hand
without disengaging the driving connection. A
spring 30 is provided for swinging the recording
key outward from its housing when the cover is
position (Fig. 9) to its right-hand position (Figs.
6 and 8), thereby causing pawl. 59 to rotate
removed, and replacement of cover I2 causes the
ratchet wheel 60.
recording key to be restored to its housing,_as
70 illustrated in Fig. 2.
The stepped crown is enclosed within an outer
casing 32, with which it is permitted to slide lon
gitudinally of the key support 22 by means of
pin and slot connections 33. A spring 34 which
continually urges the casing outwardly is seated
Ratchet wheel 60 is pinned
to shaft 52 and its rotation causes rotation of
shaft l4 and of stepped crown i3, as previously
described.
Pawl 56 is a spring-pressed pawl having a
spring 61 which urges the pawl against the teeth
of ratchet wheel 65 and thereby serves as a safety
stop against the reverse rotation of shaft 52.
2,119,637
Also ?xed to shaft 52 and forming part of
ratchet wheel 60 is another ratchet wheel 64
(Figs. 7 and 8) which is engaged by a locking
pawl 65. Pawl 65 carries a pin 68 in. engage
ment with a slot 69 in rocker plate 58. The re
lationship of the slot and pin is such that the
pawl is maintained out of locking position except
at the moment when the shaft has completed its
forward rotation under the advancing action of
rocker plate 58 and pawl 59, at which moment
pawl 65 is brought into engagement with ratchet
wheel 64 to lock the ratchet wheel and shaft
against overrunning.
A quick acting device is provided for prompt
15 and precise restoration of all time controlled
parts to their initial positions. This device is
provided at the upper end of lever 55 and includes
a roller 'II and a triangular support therefor ‘I2.
The support is pivoted upon lever 55 at ‘I3, and it
20
has a ?anged edge ‘I4 for limiting its movement
about the pin. When cam 54 is acting upon
lever 55 through roller ‘H support ‘I2 assumes the
position illustrated in Fig. 10 with ?ange ‘I4 limit
ing its anti-clockwise movement. When roller
'II reaches the crest of the high point 6| of the
cam it will quickly kick out and rotate support
member ‘I2 clockwise thereby permitting lever 55
to fall to the low part of cam 54. under the action
of spring 62, as illustrated in Fig. 6. This ac
tion rotates the stepped crown I3 of the time re
cording key to starting position.
The portable recording unit is illustrated in
Figs. 12 to 18. inclusive.
This unit includes a
casing or container 80 which completely encloses
35 its contents and prevents access thereto except
by the proper recording keys which are used to
produce. the desired records. The casing is pro
vided with a cover 8| having a lock so as to pre
vent access to the contents except by an author
ized person. As has been already explained. a
key or socket member 44 is provided in the lower
part of the casing for receiving the time recording
key. In the present instance, the bore of the
socket is round to accommodate the particular
key which has been described, but the form is not
of the essence. it being merely preferable that
the socket be different from that provided for the
station recording keys, so the watchman may not
be. confused or have any excuse for not having
50 made a proper record at any particular station.
Immediately above socket 44 there is another
socket or guide means 83 for receiving a station
key 84 which will be described hereinafter.
The
cross-sectional form of the station key is rec
tangular and the guide means 85 within the cas
ing is likewise rectangular for accommodating
the key (Fig. 16).
The portable recording unit is provided with a
record sheet and means for advancing the same
step by step.
The record sheet preferably is in
3
against the drum. The paper is permitted to coil
upon and store itself in the space below the ad
vancing drum.
The paper is advanced each time a station
recording key is used to impress a record upon
the record strip.
The mechanism for advancing
the record includes a lever 95 having one end dis
posed within the station recording guide means 85
so that when the key is introduced in the guide
means it will cause rocking of lever 95 about its 10
pivot 96 (Fig. 14). Lever 95 engages an arm. 91
pivoted at 98, which is in continual engagement
with the lower end 99 of lever I00, which is
mounted upon pin IOI. When the recording key
is inserted in guide means 85 it will contact with
lever 95 and cause lever I00 to rock counterclock
wise (Fig. 15) and carry with it link I02, which
has a pin and a slot connection I03 with an arm
I04. Arm I04 is mounted to oscillate about the
bearing pin of drum 81, and after it has been dis
placed counterclockwise by the action just de
scribed, it will be restored to its position of rest
by the action of spring I05. Arm I04 carries a
spring-pressed pawl I06 which engages the teeth
on wheel I01 for actuating the drum to which it 25
is attached. The action of the spring causes
clockwise rotation of arm I04 and paper feed
when lever 95 is permitted to return to its normal
position upon the withdrawal of the station re
cording key from its guide means 85.
By arranging the record advancing means to
advance the record each time a station key is
used, each character printed by a station key will
be displaced longitudinally of the record for an
interval corresponding to the length of advance 35
of the record, and, as illustrated in Fig. 17, when
di?erent station indicia are used, as for example
I, 2, 3 and 4, they will appear in staggered and
serial relation to each other. The staggered re
lation will be an uninterrupted straight diagonal 40
line, but if the stations are visited in improper
order, the station visited out of turn will be re
corded off of the straight diagonal, with the re
sult that any irregularity in the watchman’s in
spection as to both station and sequence of visits 45
will be immediately apparent.
It is desirable to cause advance of the record
strip when the cover is raised or lowered. For
accomplishing this, a member I09 is secured to
the cover (Fig. 15). This member I09 depends 50
into the casing and has two edges H0 and III by
which the record strip advancing drum may be
actuated upon the closing and opening move
ments of the cover. When the cover is closed,
edge IIO engages projection IIZ on lever I00 55
(Figs. 14 and 15), and when the cover is raised,
edge I I I engages the same projection and likewise
causes rocking of lever I00. Thus, from either
opening or closing of the cover, arm I04 is rocked
anti-clockwise (Fig. 15) and then released for
the nature of a paper strip wound into a supply
an advancing movement of drum 8? and accom
roll 86 (Fig. 14). The supply roll is mounted at
one end of the casing and an advancing drum 81
is mounted at the other end of the casing. The
panying feed of the record.
65 supply roll may be mounted in any convenient
manner, as on a pin supported by a pair of up
rights and held in place by spring-pressed arms,
as illustrated in Figs. 14 and 15.
The record 88 is
threaded through slot 89 and passes through
70 spaces 90, 9| at either side of the station key
guide means 85, over plate 92 and onto drum 81.
The record is provided with holes 93 along both
of its longitudinal edges and these are engaged
by teeth 94 on the advancing drum. A keeper
75 I08 (Fig. 12) holds the record strip in place
As explained hereinbefore, the time recording
key is provided with a stepped crown element
which selectively positions time indicia in ac
cordance with the time indicated by the position
of the stepped crown. In the present embodi
ment of the invention there are twelve different
time indicia, one for each hour of the day. These
indicia consist of pairs of die members H4, H5. 70
The lower die members are carried by a disk I I6
carried by a sleeve splined to shaft II'I. Each
upper member of the pairs of die members is in
dividually mounted upon a spring arm I I8. The
upper members are together held in place over 75
4
2,119,637
their companion lower members between a nut
I I9 and a hub of disk H6.
The lower end of shaft I ll carries a pinion I25
which is engaged by a rack I2I having at one
end thereof projection 45 which is selectively po~
sitioned by the various steps upon the stepped
crown I3 of the time recording key. When rack
I2I is actuated by the introduction of the time
recording key in its guide means M, shaft II‘!
ll) is rotated an amount su?icient to position the
selected recording indicia opposite the edge of the
record strip upon which the time is to be im
pressed. As illustrated in Fig. 1'7, the time is
impressed just outside of the left~hand row of
15 holes I33 in the record. In the present embodi~
ment of the invention the indicia consist of male
and female dies but any other form of marking
or printing means may be employed.
After the proper pair of indicia has been se
lected by the cooperation of the stepped crown
I3 and movement of rack I2I, the printing oper~
ation is brought about. This is accomplished by
the actuation of lever I 2t when it is contacted
by the end of stem 25 of the time recording key.
25 Lever lid is mounted upon pin I25 and it has a
yoke connection with the sleeve carrying disk I I6.
Its clockwise movement (Fig. 16) causes it to
raise disk I I6, spring members I I8 and hook I26.
This hook engages and raises a hinged plate IZ'I
30 normally held down by a spring I28. Cam sur
face IZQ on hook I25 slides over ledge I30 until
hook I26 is released from engagement with plate
I21. This provides a sudden release of the re
straining action of spring I28 and results in a
35 quick application of force for raising disk I It and
indicia [I5 thereon to bring about an imprinting
53, which are carried by a pair of spring mem
bers I44, I45. These spring members are nor
mally held in an open position by means of a
spring I 46 (Fig. 19), cooperating with a pair of
spring levers connected to the die carrying
springs. Spring members I44, I45, are attached 10
to a pin Ml carried by a casing I48 which is slid
able into another casing I49. This latter casing
is hinged by a pin I59 to a permanent support at
a particular station. As the key is introduced
into socket 83 and key guiding means 85 of the
portable recording unit, a bar I5I is brought into
engagement with lock I52 of the recording key
and causes the same to shift longitudinally of
casing I48 and the accompanying bringing to
gether of spring members I46, I45 carrying the 20
die members under the action of wedge I53. As
indicated in Fig. 1'7, each station has a different
station character and each stattion character is
impressed by dies arranged at different distances
from the ends of the recording keys.
For an un
derstanding of the present invention it will not be
necessary to describe in more detail the construc
tion of the station recording key. The same is
fully disclosed in United States Patent No.
1,183,349, and United States Reissue Patent No.
14,193.
The watchman’s portable recording unit is pro
vided with means for preventing the making of a
station record whenever the cover is raised from
operation. After this operation has been com
pleted and the time recording ‘key withdrawn
from engagement with lever I24, spring I5I will
its closed position. This mechanism is illus
trated in Figs. 13 and 15 particularly, and it in
cludes lever I55 pivoted at I56 and having an arm
carrying a projection I51 adapted to be inter
posed in the path of the station recording key 8'4.
ensure the dropping of the lever, hook I25 and in
dicia bearing disk members II6 and IIS to their
to the entry end of the station key receiving
normal positions (Fig. 16), and spring I32 will
return hook I25 into engagement with plate I27.
Upon the withdrawal of the time recording key
45 from its guide means MI, rack I2I, together with
the indicia bearing members and associated
sleeve will be rotated to their normal positions
by means of spring I33 and arm I315 (Fig. 14),
which has connection with rack I2I.
During the time recording operation, the in
50
dicia bearing wheel I I6 is raised and the dies im
mediately beneath anvil I35 are brought to—
gether to impress a character upon the edge of
the record. The upper and lower dies engage the
upper and lower surfaces of the paper as spring
member I I8 carrying the upper die is carried into
contact with the anvil.
Anvil I35 is supported upon ?xed pivot I35,
upon which it is adapted to be rocked, but when
(50 it is engaged by a spring element III! during a
time recording operation, its pivotal movement is
restricted by the inner surface of guide means 85,
so that for all purposes of time recording, anvil
I35 is a relatively ?xed member.
65
A station recording key of the type adapted to
be used in the present watchman’s system is illus
trated generally in Figs. 18 and 19. This station
recording key includes a pair of die members I42,
Anvil I35 performs the further function of im
printing a telltale character upon the record
whenever the cover is opened or closed. The up
per die of a pair of dies I31 for the telltale char
acter I38 is carried by one of the spring elements
70 IIB (Fig. 17), and the character is caused to be
impressed upon the record whenever anvil I35
is rocked in a clockwise direction, as illustrated
in Fig. 18. This is brought about whenever dou
bled-edge cam I39 engages nose I40 as the cover
75 is raised or lowered.
The lever I55 is so positioned as to be adjacent i
means 85 so that the station key may not be in
serted within the casing when the projection is
in its obstructing position, as illustrated in Figs.
13 and 14.
Arm I58 of lever I55 has a pair of laterally
extending ears I52, I63, engaging link I55, which
is pivotally connected to the cover 8I so that all
movement of link I59 about its pivot effects
movement of lever I55. Link I59 has a slot ISI!
and all movement of link I59 about its support
ing pivot is controlled by a pin I6I fixed in the
wall of the casing and engaging the slot. The
slot is so designed that for the greater portion of
its length it will not displace projection I51 from
its obstructing position. For a short length of
the slot near the cover of the casing the slot is
diagonally disposed to give the link a quick move
ment as the cover nears or leaves its closed posi
