The high flyer in the ticket family: RFID tickets set new standards in terms of functionality and the handling of access control systems.
An RFID ticket has a wafer-thin transponder (combination of chip and antenna) fitted between two layers of paper. This "sandwich" may be produced as an individual ticket or a fanfold Leporello ticket.
The smart ticket combines the advantages of paper tickets with those of contactless chip cards. Less expensive materials (paperboard compared with PVC etc.) result in lower unit costs without having to sacrifice the benefits of RFID technology: fast, convenient, secure data transfer – contact-free.
RFID tickets are the most recent innovations among the RFID media. They are rapidly taking the lead in areas that were previously the domains of paperboard tickets and contactless chip cards. These primarily include ski resorts, stadiums and event venues, as well as applications in the public transport sector.
It goes without saying that RFID rickets can be printed in exactly the same way as conventional paperboard tickets. This means a thermal printer can also be used to post-print them in the usual manner.
