5 Claims.

This invention relates to facsimile transmission systems and the like. By facsimile system is meant a system for the transmission to distant points of records, especially records printed, writ- 5 ten, drawn or photographed upon the surface of some medium such as paper, film, or the like.

Such systems utilize at the transmitter records,

the various portions of which have different light.

reactive properties and reproduce at the receiver l a so-called facsimile of the record which was acted upon at the transmitter. Such facsimile reproductions are not necessarily extremely precise or identical copies of the record at the transmitter, but may approximate, in exactitude, the

l i matter to be transmitted merely to such degree as will serve to give a reproduction satisfactory for a particular purpose desired.

This invention deals more particularly with facsimile transmission systems where a graphic 80 record is acted upon by electro-optical transla-4 tion means, including a photoelectric cell and the electrical signals thus produced correspond in value to the light reactive properties of the various portions of the matter to be transmitted. At

i 25 the receiver a translation of these electrical signals gives rise to an optical reproduction of the material acted upon at the transmitter. The transmission link between the transmitter and the receiver may be, for example, a physical line 30 ora radiant energy channel.

One embodiment of this invention optically analyzes the image to be transmitted by a scanning process and causes the reproduction of such image upon a surface of paper or similar material 36 at the receiver in the form of marks upon such ployment of ink to be made upon' ordinary paper not especially prepared or treated for the pur- 50 pose, at a facsimile receiver. This is in contrast to many facsimile reproducing devices previously proposed or now in use, which produce records not as permanent as those of the ink type, or else require the employment of electrochemical, 55 thermochernical, photochemical or other treated appearance of the reproduced image.

(C1. ris-6.1)

ical surfaces and with the inconvenience inherent in the use of chemical agents.

Suchphotographic processes as those last referred to, which require subsequent chemical treatment, have the further disadvantage that any maladjustment or improper functioning of the receiving device, such as lack of synchronization with the transmitter, cannot be perceived by the operator of such a receiver until the entire transmission has ended and the photographic' record has been developed. This invention avoids such diculties by making a record which may be instantly visible to the operator and thus allows him to see and correct at once any maladjustment of the receiver, withoutV losing an entire transmission due to any material delay in the Furthermore this invention, by dispensing with the use of photographic paper or other electrochemical or thermochemical responsive surface allows a great gain in economy of material and simplicity of operation, even to the extent of removing such. reproduction process from the status of an operation necessarily conducted by skilled technicians, to one which can be conducted by an ordinary layman capable of operating the u'sual household radio receiver.

Another object of this invention is to produce a facsimile reproduction which may be termed "continuous. Many types of previous facsimile systems have employed a surface whose area was limited; for example, a single sheet of paper of limited length Wrapped once around a cylindrithe following reproduction. This invention allows the utilization of a so-called continuous type of record paper. A roll of paper having very great length in vone dimension may be employed with this invention, thus reducing changes of the record necessarily made by the operator to a minimum number. This invention allows a similar continuous strip to be used at the transmitter.

Another object of this invention is to allow facsimile transmission and reproduction at high B5 rates of speed, such that, for example, events of current interest such as important news items or financial quotations may be made available with such rapidity and accuracy as to compare favorf ably with more complicated systems now used for such purposes, such as printing telegraphs and l the like. This invention allows adequate detail to be maintained in such cases, evenwith high speed transmission.

A further object of this invention is to provide a facsimile reproducer which shall be able to function for long periods without the necessity for any attention on the part of an operator.

Such automatic operation will allow a facsimile reproducer giving a permanent record according to this invention to be employed over wire or radio channels during periods of the day when such channels are carrying the minimum amount of traffic and thus may be of great benefit in allowing such channels to be more elciently employed than is at present possible with the uneven load distribution extending over the daily period of their utilization.

Still another object of this invention is to provide a facsimile receiver which shall be simple and cheap in construction and which can be employed in conjunction with household receiving apparatus such as a receiver for broadcast radio signals, notwithstanding that such radio receiver may have a' normally poor response to low fre- Y quency signals such as those used in a facsimile transmission. A facsimile receiver of this type presents a wide field of utility in that it may be employed in household use as an appendage to types of radio receivers which are already to be found in widespread use in such locations or in other places where they must necessarily be capable of satisfactory operation by those who are laymen with respect to the electrical art.

Another object of this invention is to allow facsimile transmission by the employment of electrical signals which will not easily be confused with or interrupted by stray or static im-V pulses or so-called noise effects originating in the terminal apparatus itself or elsewhere.

This invention may be used to produce such signals, particularly when only two light values are used for reproduction, as above described.

Such a system allows substantially maximum i verse reproduction of the object employed at the transmitter to be obtained at the receiver. Such a feature is of great practical utility in allowing the employment of photographic negatives without the necessity of making positive copies thereof, and yet allowing the reproduction to be obtained as a positive. .It thus may employ either optical type of object, i. e., positive or negative, at the transmitter by an extremely simple change of adjustment thereat, while the receiver may easily be adjusted to reproduce such optical objects in correct or natural form. In this fashion this invention reduces the time necessary between the photographing of some scene or object to be transmitted and the actual transmission thereof. For example, news events may inY this fashion be transmitted in a Very short time after their actual occurrence.

Yet another object of this invention is to allow material written by machina' for example, a typewriter, to be transmitted with the minimum delay between its printing and its actual transmission and reception.

Another object is to transmit facsimile signals in such fashion that a pen at the receiver may remain in contact with a recording surface when nov signals are being received, giving a pensealing effect when the receiver is not in use and avoiding-unwarranted evaporation or drying up of writing fluids used with the pen.

A further object of this invention is to provide a photoelectric translating systemy where alternating current is employed in connection with a photoelectric cell in such` fashion that high percentage modulation may be obtained, notwithstanding the electrostatic capacity inherent in such cells.

`Further objects of this inventionare to provide means for illustrating radio lectures and the. like by graphical illustrations simultaneously transmitted, to allow a permanent record of formulae, quotations, or the like to be obtained by a listener without the necessity for any effort on his part in transcribing the same. n v Other objects of this invention are to allow the transmission of broadcasting of financial quotations, weather reports', andl similar groups of figures or separate words which may be easily confused when received solely through the ear and to allow broadcasting stations to obtain a definitely measurable index o f station coverage and program popularity.

This invention may be understood by refer-v ence to the drawings where Fig. 1 is a block diagram representing the Various cooperating units which may be employed with one'form of transmitterY embodying this invention. Y

Fig. 2 is a block diagram representing an alternativeassembly of units which may be em- -ployed withv another form'fof .transmitter embodying this invention.

Fig. 6 shows partly schematically certain elements which may be employed to form a complete receiver and certain of the circuits thereof.

Fig, '7 shows certain details of a receiver suit'- able for operation with the system-of this invention.

Fig. 1 shows a block diagram of a facsimile transmitter according to this invention in which the component parts and their fun-.tions have been simplified. Referring to this iiguf.. an oscillator 3 operating `at aisub-carrier frequency such as 2400 cycles per second is shown. The

output voltage of' this oscillator is delivered to av balanced-modulator 4 having a photo-electric cell as the modulating element. A mechanical or other type scanning system 5 may be employed to scan the subject to be transmitted and transmits lightimpulses of varying intensity, depending on the various optical densities of different portions of the objectto be. transmitted, to the photo-electric cell.' The output of the balanced modulator, consisting of pulses of sub-carrier freceived by the photo-electric cell, is fed to an amoscillator. A here'shovyn, be derived from the sub-carrierespliiier 6 tuned to the sub-carrier frequency and capable of passing at least one side-band of the modulated sub-carrier frequency, preferably at least as great as the frequency of the scanning system light pulses. 'I 'he output of the tuned amplifier is fed to a modulation system 'l where it modulates the carrier-frequency signal to be transmitted to the distant receiver.

'I'he carrier modulated by the sub-carrier pulses may be radiated at any radio frequency,-

such as 1650 kilocycles from an antenna I in conjunction with a ground connection 2, or any other suitableradiating system may be used.

'Ihe radiated carrier wave of i650 kilocycles, in this instance, is doubly modulated by (a) the 2400 cycle sub-carrier and (b) the scanning impulses of still lower frequency which modulate the 2400 cycle sub-carrier.

Fig. 2 shows a block diagram of a system which embodies some refinements overthe system of Fig. 1 by the addition of a keying system and a system for generating a back stroke signal for the receiver recorder. The operationof the system of Fig. 2 is similar to that of Fig. 1 up to the output of the tuned amplifier 6, at which point the modulated sub-carrier pulses are rectied,'as by detection means 8 such as a thermionic diode circuit included at this point, and the pulses of rectified current are fed to a keying relay 9. The keying relay thus operated is used to turn off and on an alternating voltage which may, as here shown, be derived from the sub-carrier The back-stroke signal may also, as

cillator. 'I'he back-stroke signal is turned on and the picture signal is turned o' by a switch operated synchronously with the scanning system, during each return or non-operative stroke of the scanning process. One form', of this switch and the purpose of the back-stroke signal will be later described in connection' with Fig. 5. The keyed signal and Aback-stroke Asignal corn- -prising, for example, a 2400 cycle tone, are used to modulate the carrier frequency. The modulated carrier frequency energy may then be radiated from the antenna as inthe case of Fig'. 1.

Fig. 3 shows a'systern similar tothat of Fig..2 with the modification that a second source of s ubcarrier frequency energy such as generator I0 is used to supply the back-stroke signal and the keying'relayoutput or picture signal. The.sec-- plaining in greater detail the system of' Fig.v 3,

reference numeral 3 denotes the sub-carrier oscillator, or similar device for producing an electric current of Ydefinite frequency and intensity. Such oscillators are well known in the electrical art and since there may be used any suitable type, such as a type employing resonant circuits and/or piezoelectric crystals, it is not considered necessary to illustrate the internal circuits of such oscillator in detail.

It is likewise-possible to employ In place of the type oscillator just described, another type oscillator which is controlled or exteriorly governed by some other frequency, such as the frequency of a commercial power circuit which serves to supply energy to the entire transmitter. In many cases auch secondarily controlled types of oscillatorsV will befound advantageous.

Oscillator''-1.13Qactstri:produce any alternatingV current ofsubstantially constant frequency and intensity whichsivesfas a carrier of the picture signal throughout lthe amplifying system employed aft-the transmittei-gv` The frequency produced f by this 'oscillatoris preferably chosen higher than-,any frequencypr'oduced by the modulation of the photoelectric cell, in order that it may more satisfactorily function as a carrier of the signals produced by'such modulation.

At 2l is indicated a. transformer with primary winding 22 and secondary .winding 23, serving to couple oscillator 31to photoelectric cell 24. Secondary winding 22 is tapped at a point intermediate the extreme ends of the winding, as indicated by reference numeral 25. One end of the secondary winding is connected to one element of photoelectric cell 24 and the other end of winding 23 is connected to the other terminal of photoelectric terminal 24 through an adjustable resistance 26 and an adjustable condenser 21 connected in series with one another.

When condenser 21 and resistance 26 are adjusted so as properly to correspond with the resistance and capacity of photoelectric cell 24, an electromotive force will be impressed through these two elements upon photo-electric cell 24 in such phase relationship and to such degree as to balance or compensate for the sub-carrier voltage which passes through cell 24, when no light is falling upon the cell. This balanced modulator circuit constitutes a feature of great practical importance since it allows an alternating current to be employed in connection with a photoelectric cell, and still permits the useful output of the cell to be modulated through a wide range of values. If such a balancing or compensating circuitis not employed, the alternating carrier current from-:oscillator 2 0 will pass through cell 24, even when .this vcell is not illuminated, andin many cases ,the current thuspassing through the cell will be of a lmagnitude so much greater than 'that of the'current due to the Aillumination of the cell, as practically tovcompletely overshadow the latter.

tially every half-cycle ofthe sub-carrier oscillator. Afterpassing through'a transformer or similar device, it is evident that such signal again will become an alternating current.

The intensity of this sub-carrier signal is proportional to the amount of light acting upon the Following the cell 24, within practical limits.

rto

to operate on these low frequency'pulses. These current pulses correspondin frequency and intensity to the pulses of light falling on the photoelectric cell 2d, While the amplitudes of the pulses from the rectifier thus depend on the light values of the subject being scanned, thevoltages supplied to the later circuits by the closing ofA relay contact 30 will have a constant maximum amplitude. Y

This transformation from varying amplitude pulses Ito constantV amplitude pulses also aids in eliminating any noise which may have become associated with the initial type of pulses. The back-stroke signal switch 3i connected to the relay by wires 32 also supplies constant amplitude signals during the back or non-recording stroke of the scanner.

. One means for operating switch 3i being shown later in Fig. 5, it suffices to say here that it may be operated from some part of a mechanical scanner stroke mechanism and may be synchronized with the return or non-operative stroke. Completing the operation of the'system, the keyed pulses and back-stroke signals are used to modulate a carrier wave and the modulated wave radiated from antenna i and ground 2. y

While a radio transmission system has beenv shown,'the invention is not limited to radio transmissionas, for example, the carrier frequency oscillator and modulator may -be omitted and the keyed pulses `and back-stroke signalsY may be fed directly Vto a wire line or recorded on a phonograph disc or motion picture lm.

One suitable form of pick-up scanner is shown in Fig. 5. A concentrated light source d is used to shed light rays through a rectangularv aperture di in mask d2. Behind this aperture a suitable objective lens 33, xed in a screen lili, is caused to reciprocate in the plane of the mask, by the use of suitable mechanism not here shown. Film 55, whose plane is parallel to the direction of inotion of lens 43, is moved continuously in a direc- Y through the agency ofV lens d3. Mask i5 with slot shaped aperture 4l, placed behind the lrn,

allows photocell to receive the light which has passedv through film d5. Scanning in one dimension is accomplished by the luminous Yspot from reciprocating lens d3 passing across the ilm' in one dimension while the movement of the film gives scanning in the other direction.

Any suitable mechanism, as well known in the art, may be employed to secure the relative rnechanical motions of the, various elements/ as above described. I'

Wires il@ convey the electrical output oi' cell d8 to the circuits of the balanced modulator, and back-stroke signal switch 3i may be operated by the motion of mask 63, which, through simple and well known mechanical means may be arranged to open this switch at one end of its stroke and close it again at the other end of its stroke. Thus as the image of source d passes transversepen 66.

ly to thei'motion of the nlm, Vin one direction, scanning of the images on the film is effected, while on the return or non-scanning stroke, the switch 32 is automaticallyclosed to prevent effective'scanning, It is understood that any other suitable mechanical or electrical scanner may be employed to produce facsimile signals, since this invention is not limited to the form of scanner disclosed in Fig. 5.

Fig. 6 shows a receiving system embodying a standard broadcast or other type radio receiver .5B connected to antenna 5l and ground 5i', a coupling unit lil and a recording pen li. Leads 52 and 5'3 are brought out from the receiver, e. g. fromrthe primary of the transformer 52V which supplies speaker 53', or from some other internal source of large audio signal energy. l

The demodulation in the standard receiver and subsequent audio amplification will result in pulses of sub-carrier frequency voltage corresponding to the pulses of light falling on the photo-cell and to the back-stroke signal pulse. The pulses of sub-carrier voltage across wires 52 and 53 may be applied to at least a part of the primary of transformer 55 through condenser 54. Transformer 55 may be tuned in the primary by condenser 55, and in the secondary by condenser 5l, to the modulated sub-carrier frequency or preferably to the centerof one side-band thereof. The secondary voltage of transformer 55 may be applied to a rectifier consisting of a diode having an anode 58 and cathode 59. An impedance 6U and a biasing battery 6i may beeconnected in series with cathode 58.. Rectified pulses now will appear across impedancev, which pulses (after filtering out the sub-carrier voltage by means of condenser 62 and inductance t3) are applied to the control grid of output tube 69, together with biasing voltage from battery 6i Output tube G9 is shown as a pentode type but may be any other output tube of suicient power handling capacity and sensitivity. In the output circuit of tube 69 are pen voperating coils 54 and $35 arranged to actuate magnetically pen element t5. A high voltage supply i6? (usually possessing appreciable internal impedance) is shown to operate tube 69. Coil 65 acts to create a polarizing .field for pen G6 and may be energized as shown, by a current drawn through bleeder resistor 68, plus the screen-grid current'of tube 69.

When a signal is impressed the plate current rises, and because of thev effective impedance of the high voltage supply 6l, the resistor current falls. However, the screen current simultaneously rises, and the circuits may be so proportioned Y that the sum of screen and resistor currents,-i. e.,

the polarizing current in coil B5, remains substantially constant, or even rises, when signals are received. Coil 6d is connected in series with the anode circuit of tube 69 and receives the rectied and amplified output pulses previously described. Coil 6d thus energized, drives the Fig.l 7 shows in more detail the construction of one form of the recorder pen. A strip of recording paper Sli is fed over a platen 8i preferably of cylindrical shape. The pen-driving mechanism consists of an Yelectro-magnet 82 made up of coils Sd and 55 (Fig. 6) Wound around a magnetic core 83, and a small iron armature 8d which is magneticallyV acted upon by the electro-magnetV vcore 33 and is fastened to the peureed. Pen point S6 with flexible ink feed tube 8i'preferably connected to an ink reservoir (not shown), may

be attached to one end of 'reed 85 and the other encl of reed 85 may be secured to mounting bracket 88, which in turn may be fastened to magnet 82 and hence move with it. 'I'he direction of paper feed is indicated by arrow 89 and the preferred direction of the pen on the active or marking stroke is indicated by arrow 90.

The' pen pressing against the paper as shown produces a firm marking. With no signal being received, the pen is in contact with the paper and hence is marking uponit. When a pulse of current is fed to the coil system of electro-magnet 82, due to light falling on the photoelectric cell 24 and subsequent amplification, modulation, transmission, reception and rectification as` described above, the pen is lifted from the paper,

leaving a white space thereupon. Likewise onV its return stroke, the pen is lifted from the paper by the action of theback-stroke signal previously described and no mark is made during this return passage. Each complete to and fro travel is accompanied by an appropriate motion of the recording paper in the direction indicated by the arrow 89. Any suitable mechanism, not Ahere shown, may be used to secure this feeding motion of the recording paper.

In case of transmission from a negative picture subject, pulses may be generated at theortrans-` mitter corresponding to picture densities above a certain value (instead of below a certain value as in positive transmission), so that when received and recorded a positive reproduction is obtained. For such operation the balanced modulator described in connection with Fig. 4 above will ordinarily be adjusted to pass minimum sub-carrier current when the photoelectric cell is fully illuminated, the consequent unbalance being produced by reduction of photocell illumination as the darker portions of the transmitted image are scanned.

Another method of providing negative transmission is to'fitrelay 29 (Fig. 4) with a backcontact 9| and so to reverse the phase of the signal modulation by connecting it in place of the normal or front-contact 30, Either method effectively reverses the sense in which the system operates and provides "negative transmission as here described.
