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 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.

How you benefit from RFID solutions from ELATEC for physical access control


Your business benefits from an RFID solution in several ways. Your employees save time and energy and administrative processes are faster and more efficient.

Building security

A door reader lets in only those who are actually authorized by you. Whether through a gate, turnstile or elevator, access to company premises, to the building, onto a certain floor or to a specific office can be very easily secured so unauthorized persons are kept out.


In addition to physical access control, employee authorization and other user applications can be combined into one RFID solution, such as by having everything on one company ID from vending machines to a check-out process for company bikes.

Cost savings

When buying or leasing a building or office with existing authentication and access control systems, our “universal” devices are especially useful because they can handle all security technologies.

I’ve told the guys at my factory that I won’t even entertain other options anymore, because ELATEC does such a great job.

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).
