Electic Shelving – Reliability For Decades

Updating a university’s electronic shelving systems.

The Challenge: Old Shelving System

A prestigious university chose Spacesaver to provide electronically powered mobile shelving for its two largest libraries about 25 years ago. The controls worked reliably ever since, opening aisles with the press of a button. But eventually, like many electronic devices, the electronic controls on the Spacesaver systems required an update. The electronics manufacturer no longer made parts to support the systems’ upkeep.

The Solution: Replace Just What You Need To

The university opted to update the old electronics with Spacesaver’s Eclipse Powered System® with Touch Technology™ Control. That’s because they knew the investment would significantly extend the life of the university’s high-density shelving at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new system, and the streamlined conversion process would minimize downtime and disruption.

Power Upgrades

The electronics update brought new technology to the university’s libraries, including an app that allows users to move shelving without touching the LCD display. Get more information on the TUSC™ Mobile App.

Over the course of a few weeks, the main library’s aging electronics were updated to a new, state-of-the-art system. The updated electronics performed so well that the university asked Spacesaver technicians to come back to campus to update the electronics in the law school library three years later.

Conversion processes in both libraries were scheduled for the summer months, when most classes were not in session, and the conversions went smoothly and were finished on time.

The Result: Moving School Archives to a Smaller Space

The new electronic systems refreshed the libraries’ investment in electronic shelving while also saving money and conserving resources. The new control interface is more intuitive for students who are familiar with LCD touchscreen “swipe” technology, and users can open and close aisles via an app on their mobile devices.
