Sentinel BCD - OverviewApplications

Tidel’s revolutionary Sentinel™ Cash Management System has set the standard for cash control while interfacing with POS devices and many other peripherals such as cash recyclers and bill validators. The Sentinel BCD builds on this by offering bulk coin dispensing in any quantity. Coins are dispensed into individual cups.

Courier time spent in-store is dramatically reduced through a convenient loading system that accepts loose coins. The coin dispensing system can then dispense variable amounts of presorted coins at the touch of a button. Each coin is counted and accounted for by individual cashiers using the PIN based touchscreen system.

Sentinel BCD was designed around a scalable software architecture written in Windows CE running on a state-of-the-art Xscale processor. The software’s modular design allows for custom applications and reports and can be expanded to accommodate peripherals such as additional bill validators and cash recycling products. The Sentinel BCD will push or pull data over a standard network to a local LAN or central datacenter. This is also ideal for downloading software updates to your entire network of Sentinels.
