Lyngsoe Handheld™ is one of the most powerful RFID handheld readers available for libraries. It combines excellent reading performance with a compact, convenient size while still managing to be one of the lightest devices of its kind.
The device is extremely ergonomic to use, allowing extended periods of comfortable use with one hand. The adjustable and
flexible antenna further increases ergonomy by allowing
items at a different heights to be scanned with ease.
Lyngsoe Handheld includes software for staff computers. It allows wireless transfer of item lists between the computer and handheld units. If a WLAN connection is not available, item lists can also be transferred via USB.
The Lyngsoe Handheld software has three main functions. In inventory mode, for example, it is possible to scan books on one shelf and create a transfer list of those items. Then there is a search mode where a list of items can be exported from the library system to the handheld unit, or manually input from the handheld keyboard. When you are scanning the shelves with the device it notifies you when it finds an item from that list.
The last function is weeding mode, it works in reverse to search mode. An item list is uploaded to the handheld that, for example, should be on one shelf. When you are scanning the shelf, it notifies you if it finds an item that is not on the list. In this way, it is possible to remove the items which are in the wrong places
