How you can benefit from RFID
There's a lot going on. Have you heard?
What our customers say
The superb ELATEC support people were able to turn our firmware around in hours.
I’ve told the guys at my factory that I won’t even entertain other options anymore, because ELATEC does such a great job.
President, Meeting Machines
With ELATEC there is a reliable Made-in-Germany Player on the market.
ELATEC drives the exchange from insecure transponder technologies to secure solutions within only a swipe of a card.
CEO, idVation GmbH
We are very happy with the ELATEC readers. We use the TWN4 HF readers with custom firmware in a car-sharing application for one of our customers.
The RS232 communiation protocol fits to our needs, we did not have any technical issues with the readers.
The customer support and the sales team are very responsive, we are glad to work with ELATEC and hopefully we can use the products in new projects as well as in the near future.

Do you have questions about RFID? We have answers.
How do RFID readers work?
When you use an RFID reader, it produces an alternating magnetic field at a frequency of 125 / 134.2 kHz (low frequency) or 13.56 MHz (high frequency). This field supplies energy to one or more transponder (media) located in its range. At the same time, data is exchanged between the reader and transponder through this field.
What can I use RFID systems for?
There are many potential uses for RFID technologies. Do you need technology-based personal identification (e.g. employee ID, personal ID, passport)? Not a problem with RFID! RFID is also a reliable solution for the identification of animals, contactless payments, time recording and physical access control (e.g. doors, turnstiles, lockers, ski lifts). And that’s nowhere near everything: Other potential applications include product identification, product protection (e.g. theft prevention), goods tracking, lifecycle management, Internet of Things (or IoT), fleet management and car or bike sharing.
How does RFID benefit me?
When you use RFID transponders, one of the benefits is that they don’t need visual contact to be read or written. RFID gives you a comparatively wear-free technology. For instance, there are no contacts that deteriorate (neither in the reader nor the transponder). This eliminates scanning problems that can occur with the contact-based credit cards or magnet stripe cards. Unlike printed barcodes, you can also write information to many RFID tags. RFID is also capable of withstanding environmental conditions like the wind, weather, UV radiation, soiling and chemicals. RFID also provides a scalable degree of security (e.g., from simple read-only tags to high security transponders tested by EAL/common-criteria).
