The BV parser package will be provided in a zip file containing all files. The files can all be unzipped in the same directory. There are no specific requirements for the directory.
The BV parser will be started by running the bvdatparser.exe application. The start screen will look like:
There are 2 options to select the logs to be analysed:
Open folder; all logs in the folder can be selected in one go, select the directory where the (Save)BVInf.dat files are stored. The files need to be different and recommended format is: (Save)BVInf_<unitid>.dat
Open file(s); a single or multiple log files in one directory can be selected. Selection of multiple files can be highlighting / selecting the first one, moving to the last to be analysed file and select all these files.
The ‘Select mode’ is greyed out and is used to support the different note handling required for different countries / customers.
Next there are 2 ‘analyse’ options which can be selected:
Generate dashboard; provides a BV / template performance summary, an overview of the transaction volume over the day and the # of processed notes by function (1st pass / 2nd pass deposit and dispense)
Consolidate; provides a consolidation of the BV / template performance summary of all BV logs which have been processed.
Selecting ‘Parse!’ starts the conversion / analysis of the selected logs. Left at the bottom of the Window is shown how many logs were selected and how many have been processed yet.
Results are dependent on the options selected:
Consolidate.xlsx (option consolidate selected)
There are two outputs dependent on the fact if the dashboard has / hasn’t been selected:
Array with dashboard, dashboard selected
3.2 Array, defaultArray, default Array, defaultArray, defaultArray, default Array, defaultArray, defaultArray, default
The array tab shows an overview of the transactions which have been executed
IV = first pass
DP = second pass
WC = Withdrawal Cash / dispense
RJ = notes ‘moved’ to retract / reject bin by error recovery command
Depending on the mode (ECB, non ECB, etc.) different note categories will be shown:
Genuine (cat 4a)
Damaged (cat 4b)
Suspect (cat 3)
Counterfeit (cat 2)
Note error (cat 1); double feed, half folded or taped note
Transport error (cat 1); distance between notes less than 48mm or skew > 10 degrees
Recognition error (cat 1)
IV @ 06:27:46 there have been 4 notes entered; only 3 were accepted and stored in the Escrow, 1 was returned due to a note error (not visible in above overview).
IV @ 06:28:27 there were another 2 notes entered; both notes were accepted
DP @ 06:28:48 the 5 notes which were temporarily stored in the Escrow were all 5 correctly recognized on the 2nd pass and stored.
