Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag technology can be used not only to identify and track objects but people as well. This proximity card/ID badge is made of sturdy PVC and works seamlessly with standard UHF Gen 2 systems. It can be used to identify employees, contractors, vendors and others in government buildings, military bases, hospitals, banks, credit card companies, insurance companies in fact all businesses and institutions that work with sensitive information or significant sums of money. Proximity cards may also be a suitable choice when selecting ID cards for students and school employees.


Proximity Card

Embedded in each card is an RFID tag. A proximity card reader positioned between 2.5 inches and 20 feet (depending on the model chosen) receives a signal from the tag and grants or denies access accordingly. Like contactless smart cards, proximity cards can have new information written onto them.

Many organizations restrict entry to corporate facilities and assets. Proximity cards provide ID card security while allowing fast, secure access.


Custom RFID ID Cards

The SM-ID badge can be custom printed. Our RFID cards work with a variety of printer systems and ID software packages. We can also pre-encode and pre-print your ID cards and ship to your offices. Today’s ID printers work digitally, offering a host of benefits over their predecessors, such as improved appearance.

ID card systems incorporate easy-to-use software with clean templates and fully-customizable options. Drag and drop digital employee photos and company logos onto assorted backgrounds to create your desired look. Add text such as safety messages. Choose a color scheme and template, or do a completely custom creation. Frick can provide the ID card software package that works best for your needs.

Tested Polarization:

Tag performance was experimentally measured in an anechoic chamber with a known set of experimental variables. The antenna used for measurements was linearly polzarized and of monostatic configuration. The direction of tested polarization is as follows.
