(PresseBox) (Munich, ) Elatec, a highly specialised distributor of RFID solutions, has been chosen as a new licence partner for the Swiss company LEGIC Identsystems AG. LEGIC's 13.56 MHz contactless smart card technology is used primarily for personal identification applications, and the strategic partnership will give Elatec's portfolio of standard systems and tailored solutions for customer-specific RFID applications an even broader basis.

Elatec offers customers and partners high quality readers and transponders for state-of-the-art identification solutions developed on the basis of licensed RFID technology and its own components.

Stefan Haertel, head of the RFID division at Elatec Vertriebs GmbH, explains the significance of the agreement: "The strategic partnership with LEGIC will enable us to offer our customers an even broader range of solutions, such as access control. Our products incorporating LEGIC technology are ideal for applications such as multifunctional employee, visitor and supplier IDs".
