CSL recently announced that the Mapúa Institute of Technology in the Philippines has transformed its library services with a unique Ultra High Frequency (UHF) RFID solution from CSL and ClarIDy Solutions, Inc.
Mapúa Institute implemented the IDSmartTM library solution early this year at its Intramuros campus in Manila in order to significantly enhance library processes to better serve its faculty and students. According to Taiwanese service provider ClarIDy Solutions, Mapúa was the first school in the Philippines to install this UHF RFID solution, which uses CSL UHF products at Self-Service Stations, Self-Return Stations and RFID Security Gates.
“In addition to providing greater efficiency and cost savings, this solution also offers real-time statistics of library patron visits, and real-time inventory reports can be generated instantly using CSL readers with Internet connectivity,” said Jerry Garrett, managing director, Convergence Systems Limited. “Increasingly, libraries are switching to UHF RFID frequencies because the UHF tags cost less than HF tags, and the read ranges for UHF are much greater than those offered by HF technology.”
