Special format transponder made in Dresden

Success-Story 02/2016

Special format transponder made in Dresden

Our customer wanted us to develop a multi-use shoe transponder in a practical custom-made format with passive RFID technology for big sporting events (marathons, triathlons, city runs and mountain bike races).

Thanks to our many years’ experience in the manufacture of plastic and chip cards, we are able to accommodate special customer requirements and produce cards in special formats.

The challenge of creating the necessary UHF chip efficiency on a very small area in a special format is realised by means of a special antenna form and size as well as a new antenna technology.

In close cooperation with our customer, race|result AG, we developed a product which, in contrast to other passive transponders (e.g. race numbers), can be used in various ways and is distinguished by its custom-made format.

The reusable shoe tag fulfils the requirements of a long lasting product, which can withstand all weather conditions, environmental influences and mechanical strain experienced during sports events.

The special format and minimal weight of the transponder ensure practical transport for the user and offer comfort when wearing during the event. Furthermore, the small format of the transponder doesn’t hinder the runner in his sporting activity but still guarantees reliable recognition.
