The PG45 RFID security gates offered by Lyngsoe Systems are made by our global partner Nedap and especially designed to blend into different library environments, while maintaining the open character of the space. Their sleek and transparent design are on many architect’s wish list.
An alarm will sound when someone tries to carry an item that contains anti-theft activated RFID-label through the gates. Items that have already been checked out, and where the alarm has been deactivated, won’t cause an alarm on the gates. Because of the RFID-technology, other types of materials won’t cause false alarms.
The alarm notifies by sound and by red light, which is built into each antenna. Alarm sound type and loudness are adjustable. For example, the alarm sound is on for only a moment but the light will remain on for a longer time.
The security gate system consists of at least one entrance (two RFID- antennas, one RFID-reader). By using a multiplexer it is possible to reach even 1.30 m (PG45) or 1,60 m (PG50) wide entrance. RFID- security gate systems can have 1, 2, 3 or 4 entrances; making it easy for libraries to protect wide entrances as well.
The Eco readers can’t be installed with a multiplexer and the recommended maximum coverage for the PG50 is 48″. For the PG45 recommended maximum is 41”.
It is possible to have an integrated patron counter with a wireless patron statistics program in RFID gate systems. The GateController™ software can be connected to RFID-gate systems. The software allows displaying information about the cause of the alarm on staff computers, such as item names. RFID gates can also be connected to video surveillance and other external systems.
