Sentinel™ Breath Alcohol Screening Entry System

Sentinel Screening Entry System

Up to 40% of all industrial fatalities are linked to alcohol consumption and the percentage of industrial accidents where alcohol is a factor is even higher1. The SENTINEL™ Alcohol Screening System enables high volume "zero tolerance" screening of employees, visitors or contractors in safety sensitive industries such as Mining, Construction and Oil and Gas.

The SENTINEL™ can significantly reduce industrial accidents linked to alcohol consumption. It enhances existing mandated and non-mandated pre-employment, random and post-accident alcohol testing programs with the proven deterrence of 100% employee testing.

SENTINEL™ alcohol monitoring is fast, totally automated, and completely non-invasive. Tests are triggered automatically by blowing at the breath collector cone. No mouthpieces, straws or test supervision is required. SENTINEL™ uses internationally recognizable color icons to prompt subjects to blow and to display test results. There are no buttons to push or lights to interpret. Subject training or pre-qualification is unnecessary.

Unlike other devices, screening results are delivered virtually instantaneously. Negative test results are delivered in less than 2 seconds ensuring access points do not become backed-up. Positive alcohol results are delivered in less than 10 seconds.

The system can be stand-alone or be sequenced with existing turnstiles, time clocks and other access control systems. Annual calibration is done quickly and easily by your staff without having to remove the unit or take it out of service. Modular design allows for easy in-situ service by your maintenance personnel. Easy side-access to key components permits easy component replacement and remote software updates using the internal USB access.

The Sentinel™ was designed for rough conditions. A rugged steel case guards against dust, vibration and condensation. Additional measures are included to thwart tampering. Lifeloc’s field proven and alcohol specific fuel cell sensing technology ensure long working life.
