Patronus Systems believe passionately in developing a suite of security products that deliver a major blow to the criminal community. Our goal from day one as pen hit paper was to invent, design and manufacture a product that could completely remove bank note theft from the minds of the criminal!
Bold statement? Absolutely! We do believe that goal is achievable. The solution to be launched is not only 99.99% effective by removing the prize from the criminal but is also made easy for the Banks, Central Banks and Law enforcement to understand and rally behind.
The CSD-ARCIS Cash Spoiling Device, a product started as an idea sketched on paper, then launched into full manufacturing, trial and testing, is now being deployed.
“Remove the prize, remove the crime!”
WHAT IS THE CSD-ARCIS?
Designed as the ultimate in theft deterrent, the CSD-ARCIS is a revolution in bank note protection and their movement. Patronus has taken the industry problem on with the CSD-ARCIS and made it our mission to move one step closer to completely eradicating bank note theft.
Built into the lid of the cash cassette, the CSD-ARCIS unit is a small electronic device which sits silently and vigilantly watching for tampering. Upon activation, the device sprays the notes with an incredibly effective fluid which is immediately absorbed into the fabric of the notes, fusing them together as a solid block. Attempts to peel off the notes or remove the hardened fluid permanently destroys the currency.
We have engaged with Central Banks throughout the development of the CSD-ARCIS ensuring it not only meets their requirements now, but also for the future of the new polymer notes.
The unique deployment method in how the fluid is sprayed across the notes along strategically specific locations. Ensures only part of the block of notes is fused, leaving the serial numbers still visible. This ensures the notes although totally useless to the criminal, can be redeemed via the Central Bank on recovery.
