RFID & EM

RFID & EM

“2CQR have pioneered RFID development in the UK market.”

Two acronyms – two very different technologies.

Electromagnetic (EM) security systems use magnetic strips hidden in the book spines to guard your collection against theft. 2CQR have supplied and maintained market leading solutions to protect your collection since the company was founded.

That experience saw us deliver some of the earliest barcode and EM based self-service solutions in the UK market and with the arrival of Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) much, much more.

RFID affects every aspect of the management of your library’s physical resources. Instead of the simple “on/off” approach of EM, RFID enabled items can now store data – up to 25 different elements are defined in the International Standard that regulates its use (ISO 28560-2) – making it both a more powerful and more complex technology.

2CQR have pioneered RFID development in the UK market. Our professional staff helped the profession to build the standards that are now used throughout the industry. We partner with other system suppliers to ensure the smooth integration of RFID technology with your existing ICT investments.
