RFID solutions for reliable and sustainable physical access control
Would you like to monitor and control physical access to your company premises, to the building, or to security zones – because not every employee is allowed to go in or out everywhere? Do you run a hotel or healthcare facility in which guests or users should not be able to access every floor or area?
Then RFID is your physical access control solution of choice. Today. And in the future.
Discover why ELATEC delivers the optimal solution
Your benefits from contactless physical access control
If you want to know exactly or need to dependably control where users or employees, customers or partners are permitted to be, RFID offers a solution with benefits for everyone: You can be certain that only authorized persons gain physical access. And, you make it easy for your staff, members, visitors, and guests, since the authorization process takes place virtually in passing.
To top it off, the solution is easy for users to integrate into existing systems, it is flexible when changes are needed, and it is convenient to use.
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.

RFID in theory and in practice
How you can benefit from RFID in other areasContactless user authentication and access control have become an indispensable part of our everyday (work) lives. Give your customers, employees and partners in other fields of application the convenience of RFID.
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 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).
