Inte­grate RFID func­tion­a­lity in your projects!

The iSRFID module enables the use and control of RFID in your projects.
With this module, individual objects (admis­sion tickets, exhi­bits, etc.) can be iden­ti­fied so that individual reac­tions can be made.
This tech­no­logy opens up nume­rous possi­bi­li­ties.
Instal­la­tion vari­ants of RFID readers

Our RFID readers can be recessed flat and adapted to the envi­ron­ment using individual prin­ting. In addi­tion, the feed­back of the built-in LED ring can be custo­mized.
RFID readers can be installed in diffe­rent ways:

In coope­ra­tion with furni­ture manu­fac­tu­rers, it is possible to realize an embedded version, for example, in which a suitable opening is milled into the cover mate­rial to insert the RFID reader.
Another variant is to place the reader on top. On the one hand, this makes instal­la­tion more flexible, and on the other hand, the reader can also be used in places where it needs to be more mobile, e.g. at a checkout. There, the reader can be placed alter­na­tely under or on top of the counter, depen­ding on whether employees or custo­mers want to scan an RFID tag.
Object reco­gni­tion using RFID readers in museums, science centers, or exhi­bi­tions
Since an RFID system is very robust and trans­pon­ders are available in all kinds of vari­ants (e.g. as plastic nails), it can also be used in areas where the tangible expe­ri­ence is para­mount.
For example, RFID tags can be placed in movable exhi­bits. If a visitor now places this object on a reader, corre­spon­ding information can be started in the form of audio or video contri­bu­tions.
Appli­ca­tion example:
Custo­mized presen­ta­tion for visi­tors
One example of the versa­tile appli­ca­tions of RFID tech­no­logy is the RFID system used in the German Steam Loco­mo­tive Museum in Neuen­markt, Fran­conia.
Here, each visitor is equipped with an entrance ticket that has a trans­ponder inte­grated into it.
This allows visi­tors to be iden­ti­fied at the individual information stations (without personal data and, of course, volun­t­a­rily). The facts about the exhi­bits can be tail­ored to the respec­tive visi­tors, i.e. they receive information that corre­sponds to their level of know­ledge.
Ther­e­fore, the German Steam Loco­mo­tive Museum offers the possibility for visi­tors to indi­cate their level of know­ledge and language before starting the tour. They place their trans­pon­ders on an RFID reader and select “German, English or French” and “Expert, Advanced or Beginner” via a touch screen. This data is stored in the data­base.
If a visitor is now at an exhibit, he or she simply swipes the trans­ponder card over an inte­grated reader and receives information in the corre­spon­ding language and level of know­ledge (beginner, advanced, expert).
After passing through the exhi­bi­tion and retur­ning the ticket, the data record is deleted. The trans­ponder can then be used again for the next person.
Of course, this does not exhaust the appli­ca­tion possi­bi­li­ties that an RFID imple­men­ta­tion with our system offers. For example, visi­tors could assign their email address to the trans­ponder and thus receive information about the exhi­bits they have visited on request.

What is RFID?

The acronym RFID stands for radio-frequency identification, i.e. identification with elec­tro­ma­gnetic waves. This describes tech­no­logy that enables the cont­act­less and auto­matic identification and loca­liza­tion of living beings and/or objects within a trans­mitter-receiver system with the aid of radio waves.
The compon­ents of an RFID system are, on the one hand, the trans­ponder or the radio label, which contains an iden­ti­fying code. This is located on the object or living being. On the other hand, a reader is required that can read the code.
The size of RFID trans­pon­ders can vary depen­ding on requi­re­ments. For example, RFID trans­pon­ders that are barely larger than a grain of rice are implanted in pets.
In addi­tion, a parti­cu­larly favorable option is a process that allows the trans­pon­ders to be printed with stable circuits made of poly­mers. This allows the size and also the price of the trans­pon­ders to be further reduced, as well as making the reading of the devices more inconspicuous.

Product RFID

Inte­grate RFID func­tion­a­lity in your projects!

The reader can iden­tify individual objects (admis­sion tickets, exhi­bits, etc.) using tags so that individual responses can be made.


The network-enabled RFID readers commu­ni­cate with the soft­ware module using their IP address. Due to the PoE (Power over Ethernet) capa­bi­lity, a CAT5 connec­tion is suffi­cient for each reader as a connec­ting cable, which mini­mizes the instal­la­tion effort.
A reader can be installed directly in a stan­dard instal­la­tion box or “invi­sibly” behind glass or wood.


The RFID Provider from NeuroomNet commu­ni­cates with the readers via a network. The IDs of the tags used can simply be passed on to the media control system or previously linked to entries from the data­base.
