Operating Principle

Each authorized vehicle is equipped with an RFID transponder with a unique number. The transponder is glued behind the windshield. On each gate or barrier an UHF RFID reader is mounted. Each RFID reader contains the list of authorized numbers. Depending on the antenna power, a vehicle may be detected up to a distance of 12 meters. To open a gate or barrier, an electrical contact is closed.

The erfideo Access Manager is a PC application to change permissions and the authorized vehicles/persons.

Normally one RFID reader with an antenna is used. For wider access gates addional antennas can be used. The control of the barrier is done via an electrical contact.

In special cases, a 3rd or 4th antenna can be used. For special vehicles special RFID transponders can be mounted.

Standalone Solution - Access Manager

The erfideo Access Manager application is installed on a PC connected to the reader via ethernet. On the Reader the access manager service is installed. If a barrier/gate is controlled, a digital output of the reader is connected to the ground loop contact or to the open switch of the barrier/gate. The access rights may be changed from a central location for all gates with a single update operation.
