Long-range Vehicle Identification and Gate Access Made Easy
tranSpeed is a reliable long-range RFID vehicle identification and access control solution from Deister Electronics that quickly and automatically identifies drivers and vehicles in any weather condition.
Ideal for employee parking lots, garages, or gated communities, tranSpeed empowers free-flowing vehicle access control and reduces queues in entrances and exits. This automated vehicle identification and access solution simplifies the management of your available parking spaces by controlling vehicle’s entering and leaving the grounds. tranSpeed can be used as a standalone solution or seamlessly integrated with other systems
Choose from a wide range of transponders to reliably identify all vehicle types:
- Robust, heavy-duty transponders
- Self-adhesive stickers for windshields
- ISO cards that perfectly combine two reader technologies.
Passive long-range identification
Distinguishing features of our TSU readers include extremely robust die-cast aluminium housing and the compact design with integrated antenna. The TSU200 boasts a range of 7 m, the TSU100 3 m.
Our portfolio of passive transponders has been specifically developed for different materials to ensure it is also possible to achieve the best-possible range on glass or metal.
The special layout (patent pending) of the antenna integrated in the ISO card means it can be carried either way round as well as close to the body without impairing the range. Dual technology cards are also available with near field and long-range readers for enhanced levels of convenience.
Active long-range identification
The TAL 700 generates an adjustable identification field that will penetrate most materials without itself being shielded. That means this active system is particularly suitable for applications in which it is necessary to identify vehicles at an unfavourable angle to the reader – or the windscreens are covered with a special film to protect against the sun and for reasons of passenger privacy. With a range of up to 7 m the TAL 700 is suitable for all typical applications such as parking-space management and vehicle access control at car park barriers.
The active transponder TPA 8014 has an ISO card format and a battery life of up to two years. The user is able to replace the battery by simply undoing two screws – and reduce costs by continuing to use the transponders time and again. The transponders can also be equipped with a second passive technology. That makes it possible to use the TPA 8014 in applications supervising vehicle access and people accessing buildings.

The functional requirements
The functional requirements were clearly formulated: Only authorised tractor units, vans, swap bodies or trailers should be allowed to enter or leave the company site. The system must trigger an alarm in the event of attempted tampering or unauthorised access. Where are the tractor unit and swap body located? When did they enter the site and where was the swap body hitched up? All this important information must be quickly and clearly available to dispatchers at all times. In addition, the system had to be implemented in a “hot-swap”.
For the control and monitoring of the entry and exit points on the vast company site, special structural alterations had to be carried out beforehand. Traffic islands were built and vehicle lanes were added. This allowed information about the whereabouts of tractor units and swap bodies to be reliably transmitted from the capture points to the access control system of the deister electronic’s partner, primion Technology, for further processing.
Scherbauer is a renowned forwarding company in Eastern Bavaria that relies on system integrator primion Technology for the identification of tractor units, trailers and swap bodies – and on intelligent long-range solutions from deister electronic.
The solution: RFID long-range technology
24/7 monitoring at the Scherbauer forwarding company is based on RFID technology from deister electronic. All vehicles were fitted with TPU 3082 RFID tags.
These self-adhesive windscreen transponders with integrated chip were placed in the same position in each cab. There are also transponders (UDC 160) fitted with a robust plastic housing on all swap bodies and trailers.
TSU 200 long-range readers installed at the site’s entry and exit points capture the lorries’ RFID data as they approach and forward it to a control centre for analysis by the prime WebAccess software. The software only opens the barrier at the exit point for identified and authorised vehicles; 1,000 master records can be managed simultaneously.
At the same time, the transponders identified on the swap bodies and trailers allow location tracking of the load carriers as they pass through the exit point. An interface to the import-export generator uses automatic number-plate recognition aided by video surveillance to compare the transponder data with the assigned number plate. This provides additional security – a prudent solution.
“With the RFID identification and access control system, we not only monitor site access, but also keep track of the status of loading and vehicles. Reliable and resilient tran-sponders and the corresponding long-range readers have proven themselves to be excellent in practice.”
