- KSW Microtec AG changes company name to SMARTRAC TECHNOLOGY Dresden GmbH
- Launch of group-wide branding activities to reinforce global visibility of the SMARTRAC brand
SMARTRAC N.V., a developer, manufacturer, and supplier of RFID transponders and inlays, announced that the company has launched group-wide branding activities to further strengthen its well-known and trusted brand. As part of the branding measures, KSW Microtec AG (KSW) changed its company name to SMARTRAC TECHNOLOGY Dresden GmbH.
Due to its ferroelectric characteristics, the card easily withstands radiation sterilization processes making it a convenient and secure solution for access control applications in medical environments and the healthcare sector. Based on features such as customer-specific laser engraving or inkjet printing of identification numbers on the card surface, the CISO FRAM card can be used as "electronic type plate" making additional stickers and barcodes obsolete.
RFID Technology Vendor Will Work to Advance Open, Vendor-Neutral Fare Collection Systems
The Open Standard for Public Transport (OSPT) Alliance announced that SMARTRAC has joined the OSPT Alliance. As a full member of the Alliance, SMARTRAC will participate in the Alliance's activities around the development of next-generation transit fare collection systems based on the CIPURSE™ open security standard.
"We recognize the OSPT's mission and the work of its members to establish CIPURSE as the first, open global standard for next-generation transit fare collection," said Wolfgang Schneider, Member of the Management Board at SMARTRAC. "CIPURSE represents a critical opportunity for the transport ecosystem to move to next-generation fare collection systems, and we look forward to working with industry partners in OSPT to achieve these goals."
SMARTRAC N.V. announces that the company is ready to supply a complete collection of near field communication (NFC) enabled transponders. The SMARTRAC NFC product offering includes inlays for labels, tickets, and cards as well as complete tags.
“We have been looking into the potential of NFC for a while. Now that adoption of NFC is creating substantial demand, we are ready to support our customers with a complete NFC transponder range,” said Dr. Christian Fischer, CEO of SMARTRAC.
Besides the production of inlays and related components, the company's Business Unit Tickets & Labels offers additional services for customers in the media management segment, such as printing and programming for library labels. In addition, SMARTRAC has established a worldwide supply chain to support the global media management customer base with local service hubs.
High-Quality RFID Inlays
SMARTRAC - Your Partner for RFID transponders
SMARTRAC is a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of RFID transponders, dedicated to delivering high-quality, smart and secure products.

Technological developments add flexibility and cost savings to the card manufacturing process
Contactless smart cards have been widely used in public transport, access control, and e-Payment for a while now. What makes them the form of choice for contactless applications is their capability and handiness. The ID-1 format is especially popular worldwide and continuously enters into new application fields.
Smartrac has broadened its product portfolio with an RFID transponder that withstands gamma radiation of up to 45 kilogray. The new transponder is suited for use in medical applications where aseptic conditions are compulsory. S-Tags are, according to the company, characterized by robustness, high mechanical durability, and extended chemical and temperature resistance. The new tag has a size of 16 millimeters in diameter. Due to the ferroelectric characteristics of the chip, the data would be in no way affected by the radiation sterilization process. Furthermore, optional customer-specific laser engraving of identification numbers on the tag surface would make the use of additional stickers and barcodes obsolete.
