Improved security, data access

Keep it cost effective, convenient

Access control is a vitally important application of RFID, simultaneously administering access for credentialed users while providing data for applications like time and attendance and tax compliance. Credentials can be leveraged further to support payment, stock control and even safety compliance applications. Best of all, RFID access control has strong advantages over conventional contact methods, from enhanced security, convenience, reliable data collection and much more cost-effective system management.

Nevertheless, access control technologies also differ, in security, speed, range and serviceability. Older, 125 kHz frequency technologies are now obsolete since they only read a transponder's short, factory-programmed serial number, or UID; making them easy to clone. Conversely, 13,56 kHz frequency (also called 'Smart Card') technologies are over 100 times faster, permitting highly secure transactions and vastly expanded data capacity. The result is 13,56 MHz technologies support the most modern security, data storage and processing capabilities found in access control. (The faster, more expensive UHF, or Ultra High Frequency, is usually only deployed in access control when ranges out to several meters are required.)

Despite these differences, RFID access control has always held advantages over traditional locks and keys: durability, resistance to mechanical wear or breakage. This is because readers and transponders don't need physical contact. Transponder costs are usually much lower than mechanical keys. Controlling access rights is also easier, especially with centrally-administered systems. When a personal transponder is lost, you don't replace locks as when a mechanical key is lost. You simply remove its privileges from your system. Integrating a personal pin code into your system's algorithm adds security that traditional locks can't provide. Lastly, an RFID access control system can let you rapidly create and manage temporary privileges for guests or vendors.

Other Solutions

Passive UHF (Ultra High Frequency) is an ideal long range solution for enhancing security and collecting data in transit, parking, logistics and hands-free applications. Our passive UHF devices are built tough, reliable for the harshest outdoor settings.

Wireless RFID data transmission from controllers opens opportunities for novel applications. That’s because you can install a wireless controller (and its reader) where data cabling back to your system would otherwise be too time-consuming or costly. You can even expand an existing system with a wireless controller, for significant installation cost savings.

Over 27 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.
