CSL Creates Dual Mode RFID Access Card

CSL BAP Card 2Wow, the innovation just keeps on happening at CSL. The latest Dual Mode RFID Access Card product was based on a customer request, so CSL developed a series of access control ID cards with dual UHF and HF RFID frequencies. For long range access control, the card utilizes the UHF signal boosted with Battery Assisted Passive (BAP) technology. For high security identification the card uses 13.56 MHz technology compatible with MiFare® or iClass®.

“We see a big opportunity for the Dual Mode Access Card series for providing physical and logical access in defense, enterprise and financial industries, said Adam Cartner, TransTech Systems. “The EPC UHF BAP technology provides access control for parking and building access and the Mifare® or iClass® HF technology provides high security login authentication for access to computers, documents or for payment.”

There are three versions of the Dual Mode Access Technology:
CS9110 Combo Gen2 UHF BAP + Mifare HF Tag
CS9111 Combo Gen2 UHF BAP + HID eProx HF Tag
CS9112 Combo Gen2 UHF BAP + HID iClass HF Tag

 

® iClass and ePROX are registered trademarks of HID Global in the U.S. and/or other countries.

Mifare® is a registered trademark of NXP Semiconductors in the U.S. and/or other countries.

RFID Journal LIVE 2014 Show Report

RFID Child Tracking on School Bus CSL just returned from a very successful RFID Journal show in Orlando, Florida. Joining CSL this year was Roc Lastinger, one of our new VARs that has been providing projects for healthcare and cold chain transportation. There was close to 3,000 attendees and we received some high quality sales leads for the new products as well as additional requests from companies want to become a CSL VARs. A large percentage of the visitors were international.

We also introduced a change in our company focus from just being a hardware provider to a solution provider. As an example, the back drop of our booth depicted a use case for child security by tracking them on school busses with the new CS208-3G Intelligent Integrated RFID Reader with GPS and CSL’s Dual Mode BAP ID card for the child ID card.

We were a finalist for the best show demo award with our live demonstration of the CS208-3G communicating RFID tag data via SMS to a mobile phone. In addition, we showed a demonstration of our new CS8304 ColdChain Data Logging Tag communicating with our CS101 handheld reader. Click here for a copy of the CS8304 Datasheet.

Next year the show will be in San Diego, California on April 15-17, 2015. We plan to continue to innovate our product line and develop solutions further for the key RFID solution categories.
