Our quality till drawers are designed to keep your cash safe and secure at the point of sale, in your workplace or office and during transit. They can securely hold cash, cheques, coupons and slips. We also offer various accessories including mounting bracket kits, extra cash trays and lockable lids.
You can choose tills from a range of casing colours including white, beige, black, dark grey and stainless steel.
Our cash drawers are generally available in 2 forms:
- Front Opening Cash Drawers
These slide out and sit on a counter-top or cash desk or may be bracket mounted under a counter or bar. They mostly have a square shape and are normally 9-11cm thick, made of robust steel casing and a cash drawer which slides out to the front.
- Flip Top Cash Drawers
The flip top or top-opening type of cash drawers are smaller and compact in size. These have a hinged lid. Fliptop units are designed sit on a shelf below a counter or may be slotted into a purpose-built enclosure within your counter.
When deciding which cash drawer to buy, check it has enough capacity to store the cash volumes you wish to hold. Choose a build quality suited to the frequency of your expected usage, together with the necessary amount of security features (see below). Also consider purchasing one of our under-counter cash safes / counter cache which allow surplus cash to be stored using a double-security mechanism.
If you are storing hundreds of pounds / euros then the standard security features might be adequate. But if you are a large cash centre or wholesale warehouse storing tens of thousands of pounds, then our extra security high capacity cash drawers will obviously be more appropriate.
Your till drawer capacity requirements should take into account your other security procedures - most stores 'skim' the cash drawer at frequent intervals to remove surplus cash to the back-office or to a safe.
CASH DRAWER INTERFACE OPTIONS
Cash drawers can either be operated manually (using a push mechanism, a push button or key) or they can be computer operated via a PC or EPoS terminal.
Most EPoS cash drawers from PM Cash operate via the receipt printer and connect with a cable to the RJ11 cash drawer kickout port on the back or underneath most mini receipt printers. Many touchscreen terminals also have an RJ11 port for 1 or more cash drawers. This RJ connection (sometimes referred to as RJ12 rather than RJ11) looks similar to the plug/socket on your telephone. The receipt printer in turn is connected to the computer or EPoS terminal, from which the POS software application sends a command to open the drawer.
Options for 12v and 24v solenoid are available. Some POS systems will be particular about which option is required - check with your POS system supplier.
RS232 Serial or USB:
These cash drawers from PM Cash connect to the back of a computer or EPoS terminal with a cable connected to the 9-pin serial port, also known as a DB9 port. Cash drawers are available with an RS232 Serial interface, USB interface or, less commonly, a Parallel interface. You will need to check with your EPoS software provider as to which interface is compatible with your system, as well as checking you have an available spare port on your computer/terminal for the interface connection.
Some RS232 cash drawers may need a separate power supply if it is unable to drawer power from the serial port of the computer.
Some EPoS terminals have a jack-type port known as an 10P10C standard port, which looks similar to an RJ45 Ethernet network port (but it is not RJ45). It is sometimes called an RJ50 port. This type of serial port will not take direct connection of our 9-pin RS232 serial interface cash drawers. In this case, an RJ-50 to 9-pin Serial adapter would be required, although most terminals also have the DB9 9-pin ports.
PM Cash's manual cash till drawers are designed to operate as stand-alone units, without connection to a receipt printer, computer, epos terminal or cash register. They feature either a push mechanism, a push button or can be operated by key. (We do not recommend using the key for very frequent manual operation usage as eventually the key will twist and break).
Some brands such as IBM, NCR, Toshiba and Casio replacement till drawers may have proprietary interface connections.

CASH DRAWER SECURITY FEATURES
Security features such as tamper-proof casing and locks, solid steel construction, bolt-down capability and good quality locks are among the many options available on our range of cash drawers to help prevent and deter forced entry and theft.
CASH TRAY CONFIGURATION
Most cash drawers have plastic insert trays with sections for holding coins and notes, as well as additional sections sometimes for vouchers or coupons. Some cash drawers have movable separators so that you can define the size of each section according to your requirements. Some also have removable coin compartments to make cashing up easier.
Bank note sections on the cash drawer tray can be flat (usually with plastic or metal spring clips), vertical or angled. Some note compartments on till drawers have a hinged flap under which extra banknotes are kept.
Additional types of cash tray are available for some of the high specification cash drawers in our range. For example, if you require additional sections for storing different currencies if you operate a bureau de change.
MULTIPLE CASH TRAYS
If you will be monitoring cash takings for each cashier shift separately, then additional cash trays are available. This allows cash floats to be prepared in advance and also allows a cashier who completes a shift to remove their cash tray for cashing up in a back-office.
are available for most of the cash trays so that the tray is secure when being transported between the point of sale cash desk and the cash office.
SLOT FOR VOUCHERS, COUPONS & CHEQUES
Front slots in the cash drawer provide for cheques, slips or coupons to be inserted into the bottom of the cash drawer. This prevents the need to open the cash drawer.
DRAWER OPEN ALERT SIGNAL
Some advanced models of computer controlled cash drawers are able to send a drawer-open electronic signal back to your EPoS software. This security feature allows your software to warn the cashier if the till drawer is open for too long.
