Bank note theft has been around since the invention of the paper currency. We think it is time to change that.
“Central Banks have been torn between the need to support banks, keep confidence in the currency and the requirement to remove stained notes from circulation.”
As recent as the autumn of 2014, several global central banks started to look closely at alternatives. The Development team engaged with and explored how the CSD-ARCIS device could provide a breakthrough. Now several years later and we have a product that is building the excitement that this could be ultimate deterrent. The banking world has taken notice.
What ist the CSD-ARCIS?
Designed as the ultimate in theft deterrent, the CSD-ARCIS is a revolution in bank note protection and their movement. The Cash Spoiling Device, CSD-ARCIS, has taken the industry problem on 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.
