Circulation system

The Sapphire™ is an ergonomically designed high-tech self service unit that fits perfectly into the logistic process. It’s modular construction gives all the flexibility to libraries who want to migrate to different identification technology today and in the future.

The Sapphire™ self service unit seamlessly combines barcoding- or RFID technology for the identification of items and patron cards with RFID technology for optimal security of items by (de) activating the RFID tags after successful registration of items. This simple, one-move handling improves efficiency, accuracy and security in a user friendly environment.

By using LIS (LED Information Service) this unit gives detailed status information to the user about the status of the working process.

The workpad distinguishes 3 color modes:

  • BLUE: in operation
  • GREEN: access granted, proceed
  • RED: cannot proceed

The 22” HD touch screen together with the integrated receipt printer, RFID readers and barcode scanners for items and cards are designed in one compact stylish high-quality housing, and therefore easy to relocate in a library.

The Sapphire™ self service unit comes standard with full circulation software including check-in, check-out and renew functions, preconfigured to connect to an LMS (Library Management System) through SIP2, which is completely supported.

The Sapphire™ self service unit is standard delivered in a beige/grey color. Upon request other colors are available.
Available as HF, EM and hybrid HF/EM systems.
