Technology Options

We work with Passive RFID technology. The many options under this umbrella provide us with the ability to incorporate the industry's latest technologies into a card to create a secure application.

HF RFID

HF RFID 300x300

Examples include NXP MIFARE®, iClass technologies

High Frequency (HF) utilizes proprietary technology based upon ISO/IEC 14443 Type A 13.56 MHz contactless smart card standard. With more than 1 billion smart card IC's and 10 million read components sold, MIFARE® is the dominant technology in contactless smart card projects including mass transit and access management.

LF RFID

LF RFID 300x300

Most commonly referred to as Prox

Low Frequency (LF) is primarily used for security access. The card and the reader unit communicate with each other through 125 kHz radio frequency fields.

UHF RFID

UHF RFID 300x300

The way to track movement

Ultra High Frequency (UHF) is mainly used to track people & things. The frequency range is 860 MHz to 960 MHz and cards typically have a read range of 10-20+ feet in most instances.

Dual Technology RFID

Dual Tech RFID 300x300

Dual Technology cards provide a one card solution for end-user convenience

Dual Technology is a combination of 2 RFID Technologies into one form factor.

UHF + HF
UHF + LF
HF + LF

  • Allows for integration of multiple infrastructure types
  • End-user convenience
  • Drives cost reduction
  • Education
  • Healthcare
  • Government
  • Corporate

Barcode

Barcode 300x300

A machine-readable code in the form of numbers and a pattern of parallel lines of varying widths, printed on and identifying a product

Is a precise combination of lines and spaces that represents the desired information to a computer system. This allows a person or product to be identified in a financial, membership, or access control system quickly and easily.

  • Low cost
  • Wide variety of symbologies available
  • Access Control
  • Time & Attendance
  • ID Badges

Magnetic Stripe

Magnetic Stripe

Made up of tiny iron-based magnetic particles in a plastic-like film. Each particle is really a very tiny bar magnet about 20 millionths of an inch long.

Is a commonly used storage medium placed on a plastic card that allows a person to be identified or provide credentials in a financial, membership, or access control system. The magnetic stripe can store more information than a bar code and transfer that information quickly to a computer system through a swipe or insertion reader.

  • Low cost
  • Able to store more information than a barcode
  • Access Control
  • Time & Attendance
  • ID Badges
