Cost-effective long range RFID - now encrypted

Passive long range RFID in vehicle ID or logistics should save you both time and money. Vehicles only need to slow while passing through entrance gates for you to identify them. This can reduce time, fuel costs – and emissions. But Idesco passive UHF EPC readers also install faster when connecting to wireless controllers. Best of all, their passive tags save you still more money over costly, high-maintenance active tags. You can instead deploy rugged, inexpensive, passive tags detectable out to 10 – 15 meters. That’s why Idesco long range RFID saves you the most money!

We have recently updated Idesco EPC reader line with version EPC 2.0, providing encrypted data transfer between reader and transponder, and much simpler reader updating. These capabilities are made possible by latest standard Gen2v2. EPC 2.0 readers are fully backwards compatible with earlier EPC transponder versions, and they provide all the other cool features than their predecessors, Idesco EPC readers.


Long range Idesco EPC reader capabilities

Encryption and convenient reader updates

Secure 128-bit AES encryption under the new Gen2v2 standard which also enables convenient reader updates by a configuration card, without uninstalling.


Reads all the tags in their read range simultaneously. Ideal for any application you design that could regularly confront dense transit point traffic.

Detect direction

Lets you determine a tag's direction by its sequential detection across two zones. Ideal for traffic assessment applications.

Multi-app support

Parking lot vehicle access can be combined with residential or workplace access in a single transponder. Even add cafeteria lunch payment!

Auxiliary Antenna

A second antenna lets a reader work like two! You can detect traffic on opposed lanes, expand your zone or even detect tag direction.

Adjust read range

Adjustable power lets you adjust your detection zone. This is a valuable feature when you need to exclude tags from more distant vehicles.

Learn about siting long range RFID for vehicle ID

Many factors can impact the effectiveness of a long range RFID system’s design. Distances between readers and transponders, their surrounding environment, reader positioning, transponder types and orientation to the reader will all have an impact. To learn more about these factors to design a better vehicle identification application, fill out the contact form below, and download our help guide on optimizing the placement of Idesco EPC 2.0 readers and compatible tags for Automated Vehicle ID.

Passive or active UHF technology?

Passive UHF technology means transponders don’t need batteries to work. Instead, they harvest the energy needed to reply directly from the original query signal sent by your reader. In contrast, active transponders require batteries to reply, profoundly increasing their cost over passive transponders. Worse, they’ll also require regular servicing to replace depleted batteries. So, wherever a detection range of 10 to 15 meters is sufficient, passive UHF technology will prove both more reliable and much more cost-effective.

Other solutions

RFID access control profoundly enhances your security when you need reliable personal identification solutions. That’s because you can rely on them to always provide accurate, detailed and timely data on the personnel accessing and using your structures. With Idesco’s mobile solutions you can integrate mobile access to your existing system, and send mobile credentials to users’ phones directly from your own system.

Over 30 years, Idesco has delivered a wide spectrum of customized RFID solutions for industrial, service and public partners. If you can’t find what you need in our devices, our experts will happily develop with you the customized solution you require, in an OEM Project.
