TRANSIT - Vehicle and driver identification Microwave RFID readers  - active RFID

Maximize perimeter security with accurate vehicle and driver identification

The TRANSIT platform operates at 2,45 GHz frequency and uses so called semi-active transponders with batteries. The technology has proven itself in numerous high end applications worldwide. Millions of taxis, buses, ambulances, trucks and other vehicles are identified on a daily basis using this Nedap technology.What makes the system truly unique is our ‘Booster’ technology. Our Booster 2G is a smart combination of transponder and card reader. It reads normal access control cards (Legic, HID, MIFARE, etc) and sends the driver information and the vehicle information to the reader and from there on to the access control system. It enables authorization of both the vehicle and the driver.
