China-based RFID hardware provider Daily RFID has announced the availability of a new 13.56MHz multi-tag RFID reader. The DL810 was custom-designed for use in library applications, and offers several features to simply the check-in and check-out processes of library items
The DL810 uses an advanced anti-collision algorithm, enabling stacks of library items to be scanned at one time. The reader offers a tag-processing speed of up to 50 tags per second, while maintaining good accuracy levels. These features combine to reduce check-in or check-out times considerably; an entire stack of books or audiovisual items can be scanned in just a few seconds, with no need for individual item scanning.
The DL810 deploys a custom external HF antenna with a read range of up to 90 centimeters. The reader is intended for use as a fixed reader at circulation desks and can be integrated into a variety of RFID-enabled library management applications. Daily RFID has also recently launched a line of RFID labels for library applications.
