RFID solutions for machine authentication

Does your factory floor hold valuable machines that have to dependably deliver the highest performance under adverse conditions? Then your employees must be able to access and operate them without hassle despite dust, heat and dirt.

RFID machine authentication makes that possible, while meeting all user safety and security standards. You can depend on it!

Discover why ELATEC delivers the optimal solution

Your benefits from human-to-machine authentication

Our RFID solutions adapt seamlessly to your existing system landscape. In addition, simple and cost-saving synergies are possible with other systems such as physical access control and time and attendance.

But the biggest benefit is safety: Only authorized personnel may use or operate machines or enter hazardous zones. With RFID, they can do so incredibly easily and with a higher guarantee of safety and security than any other solution.

How you benefit from RFID solutions from ELATEC for machine authentication


You can be certain that the machines will be accessed and used only by individuals with the permission and ability to do so. So you can prevent any damage that may result from faulty operation and prevent unauthorized persons from making changes to the settings.

Time savings

Most employees and users know and like RFID as a simple and trusted solution, such as payment systems at the cafeteria. Convenience and security are appreciated and reduced expenses are welcomed on the administrative side too.


You can always keep track of which user is doing (or did) what and where, you have end-to-end and incorruptible documentation; that’s a plus when you have to provide proof of compliance with certain regulations or in other incidents.


Upon login, the solution automatically checks whether the user employee’s operating certificates are still current. The same is true for completed courses and training sessions. So you are always on the safe side when it comes to safety and security regulations.

You have questions. 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 transponders (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 for employee ID, personal ID, passport? Not a problem! RFID is also a reliable solution for the identification of animals, contactless payments, time and attendance recording and physical access control such as doors, turnstiles, lockers, ski lifts. Other potential applications include product identification, product protection (e.g., theft prevention), goods tracking, lifecycle management, Internet of Things (or IoT) applications, fleet management and car or bike sharing.

How does RFID benefit me?

When you use RFID transponders, one of the benefits is 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, either in the reader or the transponder. This eliminates scanning problems that can occur with contact-based credit cards or magnetic stripe (magstripe) cards. Unlike printed barcodes, you can also write information to many RFID tags. RFID is also capable of withstanding environmental conditions like wind, weather, UV radiation, soiling and chemicals. RFID provides a scalable degree of security (e.g., from simple read-only tags to high-security transponders tested by EAL/common criteria).
