TRANSIT identifies vehicles and drivers at a distance of up to 10 meters (33 ft.) and a travelling speed of up to 200 km/h (125 mph) by using semi-active (2.45 GHz) RFID technology

TRANSIT Ultimate is purposely built for vehicular access control in high-security application

Nedap, leading specialist in vehicle identification and detection technology, launches TRANSIT Ultimate at IFSEC 2015. This new long-range reader with new semi-active transponders is launched as the next generation of Nedap’s RFID platform for vehicle and driver identification. TRANSIT Ultimate will be introduced at IFSEC 2015, the international platform for security innovation and expertise that takes place in London from 16 until 18 June.

As the leading specialist in Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI), Nedap Identification Systems anticipates to the growing demand for advanced vehicle access control by introducing the TRANSIT Ultimate. It is the successor of TRANSIT Standard, the proven long-range vehicle and driver identification reader that has been leading in the market for over 15 years. TRANSIT identifies vehicles and drivers at a distance of up to 10 metres (33 ft.) and a travelling speed of up to 200 km/h (125 mph) by using semi-active (2.45 GHz) RFID technology.

New and improved features

TRANSIT Ultimate is purposely built for vehicular access control in high-security applications and under heavy environmental conditions. Except for the improved industrial antenna and housing design, the new TRANSIT Ultimate contains a second communication channel at 433 MHz that enables a wider bandwidth for communication between readers and tags. Tag authentication using AES encryption is incorporated to help prevent cloning of tags and replay-attacks.

TRANSIT Ultimate offers the following new and improved features:

  • Advanced antenna design
  • Tag authentication based on AES encryption
  • Semi-active RFID technology based on two frequencies (2.45 GHz and 433 MHz)
  • Integrated Squelch Upgrade Board for read range adjustment
  • Configurable 3 colour LED indication
  • USB Interface for communication with reader
  • Tamper Switch detects changes by unauthorised persons
  • Bonnet support strut for easy installation

“TRANSIT Ultimate is the worthy successor of TRANSIT Standard, which has been deployed successfully in thousands of installations all over the world. Every day millions of cars, taxis, buses, trucks and other vehicles are identified with our RFID technology. In the new TRANSIT Ultimate we maintained what was good, but we added some new features as well to ensure that TRANSIT will remain the technology of choice for our partners in every application with demanding requirements related to read range, security and configurability,” states Maarten Mijwaart, General Manager of Nedap Identification Systems.

Smart transponders and Boosters

"TRANSIT Ultimate has been deployed successfully in thousands of installations all over the world"

Nedap adds new tags to its portfolio that support this authentication. Nedap also introduces new Boosters (transponder with integrated card reader) that function with smartcard technologies, such as HID, MIFARE and LEGIC. Vehicles and drivers can be identified securely. The new Boosters will also support writing information on cards. Credits, offline access rights and other authorisations could for example be stored dynamically on the personal access control card when a vehicle enters or leaves the secured perimeter.

Compatibility and integration

TRANSIT Ultimate by default is fully backward compatible with existing TRANSIT Standard installations. A variety of interfaces ensure seamless and flexible integration into third party systems for security, parking, logistics and traffic applications.

Visit Nedap during IFSEC 2015 at booth E1450 to find out more about the TRANSIT Ultimate.
