- Rapid identification of moving objects.
- Several information carriers (transponders) can be read simultaneously.
- Secure technology with almost no possibility of remote spying.
- Maximum security when used with contactless smartcards.
- Easy to install and integrate.
- No special optics or positioning needed for the transponder.
- Passive transponders do not need a battery.
- Transponders are compact and inexpensive.
What is RFID?
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. The technology enables contactless identification via alternating magnetic fields. The RFID readers/writers from ELATEC support both the low-frequency range (LF) at 125 or 134.2 kHz and the high-frequency range (HF) at 13.56 MHz. For RFID, you need an information carrier, called the transponder (card, tag or paper label), and a reader/writer (RFID reader). When the transponder is within the (near) field of a reader, they can communicate with each other.
What are the fields of application for RFID devices?
The potential uses for contactless authentication are virtually unlimited. RFID can significantly improve security and convenience in the following areas, among others:
- Secure printing
- Time and attendance tracking
- Fleet management
- Driver identification
- Kiosk & ticketing
- Physical access control
- Car/bike sharing
- Machine authentication
- Single sign-on
- Charging stations for electromobility
- Fitness machines
