People and vehicle access control specialist, Nortech offers a number of products within the Nedap product range that use vehicle tagging to identify individual vehicles while they are moving through a monitoring point.
uPASS Reach reader
The uPASS Reach reader offers long-range vehicle identification for up to 5 metres using the latest UHF technology.
With consistent reading up to 5 metres and adjustable onsite reading as just two of the benefits of the system, the uPASS Reach reader has an elegant slim design, LED and audible read indication and is encased in weatherproof housing. It also operates with passive UHF tags, self-adhesive windscreen tags and hand-held tags with dual-technology options.
Long-range passive UHF tags
The reader output allows the access control system to open the gate/barrier when an authorised vehicle arrives
When the uPASS Reach reader is installed (maximum height two metres) next to an automatic gate or barrier, long-range passive UHF tags are identified at a distance of up to 5 metres as soon as they are visible in direct line of sight of the reader.
The reader output allows the access control system to open the gate/barrier when an authorised vehicle arrives without the need for the driver to present a card or badge, and the built-in high intensity LED provides the user visual feedback that the tag has been read. UHF tags are also both battery and maintenance-free.
UHF Windshield Tag
To work alongside the uPASS Reach, Nedap has designed four different UHF tags to suit all environments. The UHF Windshield Tag is a passive UHF transponder and offers long range identification up to 5 metres when installed inside non metallised windscreens.
This provides cost-effective long range vehicle identification for access control applications and is available as a standard peel off version or as a tamperproof version for additional security.
Passive UHF Exterior Tag
Where vehicle windscreens are fully metallised, Nedap offers a passive UHF Exterior Tag which can be easily fitted onto non-metallic / plastic parts of the vehicle such as the headlights.
For added security, the UHF Exterior Tag is a tamper resistant, transparent, adhesive tag. It will show visual proof of removal and is extremely difficult to remove, intact and functional. The chip inside is also protected against harmful UV rays.
UHF Heavy Duty Tag
This tag features a rugged design for long term use in outdoor and industrial environments
The Nedap UHF Heavy Duty Tag is a passive UHF transponder which again offers long-range identification up to 5 metres with the uPASS Reach. However, this tag features a rugged design for long term use in outdoor and industrial environments. The UHF Heavy Duty Tag is a cost-effective solution for installations where the tag needs to be mounted onto the exterior of the vehicle and can also be cable tied or bolted onto bicycles, forklifts and many other industrial devices.
Finally, the UHF ISO Combi Card is a card featured with long-range UHF tag and proximity or smartcard technology. Used for both people and vehicle access, it enables the use of one card for both vehicle and building access applications. Available with a range of formats such as Mifare, Legic and HID.
Efficient vehicle identification reader
The uPASS Reach reader complies with the ISO18000-6C and EPC global Gen 2 directive. This long-range vehicle identification reader is based on latest passive UHF technology. It is used in combination with battery free UHF (EPC Gen 2) tags, making this access control solution totally cost efficient. The uPASS Reach is ideal for convenient vehicle access to public car parks, private-run parking spaces and lots, gated communities and staff parking areas in corporate offices and government buildings.
