D-Tech RFID AIR SelfCheck™
Our AIR self Check™ unit is ergonomic and environmentally friendly . Designed and manufactured with a low carbon footprint the unit is also styled to meet ergonomic guidelines. Its modular design allows for easy add on options such as chip and pin and special care has been taken to make this unit easy and accessible for library staff to maintain and manage.
D-Tech has launched their new Air SelfCheck™ with ScreenRead technology, a new concept with a groundbreaking design and multi touch screen, users have everything they need at their fingertips. Air was launched at this year’s RFID Conference and feedback from delegates and other exhibitors indicated that this was a design innovation that was going to change the RFID self service landscape.
The innovation lies in being able to use the touch screen for reading labels as well as giving the user instructions. It will also work with Mifare, RFID user cards and NFC phones so users will be able to log into their user accounts with their mobiles.
Unlike the bulkier self service kiosks that we have all become used to Air has no large housings holding PCs, printers, RFID reader or plates to place books or items on. It all happens on the touchscreen .
The screen is available from 26” up to 42” and because everything is included within the touch screen Air SelfCheck™ can either stand alone or is easily integrated into library furniture. This gives library designers more options when it comes to space planning and flow around the self service units.
The stand alone AirSelfCheck™ unit is DDA compliant with sound on buttons for visually impaired users and video to help with instructions on the display. Auto user detection reads the user’s card details; this means when someone registers they can use add a field that defines their needs and when the card (manual or via a mobile) is read at the kiosk adjustments are made accordingly.
Using a mobile is easy – it only needs to be placed on the touch screen and it will read the library card/users log in information just as you would with a library card. Receipts can be emailed or sent by SMS with details picked up via the SIP2 communication from the LMS account.
The system also offers a multi-function service which is becoming increasingly important where libraries are more frequently sharing locations with other Council services. By adding a multi function screen to the front display the user can then select different options so that if they want to pay e.g. council tax, they will be directed to the Council website.
