Self Service Stack Station.
The first link in library automation starts with self service. A clear, easy to understandable interface between human and machine, and behind the interface the latest technologies in RFID equipment and reading performance. The Self Service Stack Station ( 4S ) can handle more than one item at once. Because the 4S uses a double antenna RFID reader, it can read stack up to 18 centimeters.

The client uses the interface to start the check in sequence. After the gate opens the stack is transported out of reach to maximize reading performance. All items are identified and checked for attachments. The 4S software is capable to use the Object identifier, or the Library identifier, as is required by the Generic set of requirements. The 4S can also be used to checkout or renew items.

After the transaction with the library database is completed, the complete stack will be retured with a checkout or a renew action. When the stack is to be checked in, the complete stack will be transported to the next machine to be buffered. During this process, the 4S station will be ready for it's next stack.

The 4S is able by use of a buffer system to sully stacks to the Corlector sorting machine. But the 4S is a self sustaining system. This guarantees a proper working of the self service interface and a happy client.
