Automotive RFID & Sensors

Electro-com supply Automotive sensors and controls as well as RFID solutions for for the automotive market. The majority of vehicles around the world are protected with an RFID-based anti-theft systems.

Wedge transponders are fitted into the head of a key and used for vehicle immobilisation which has become a standard-setting technology in the auto industry - supplied by trausted brands such as Texas Instruments. In 1993, TI's read-only transponder for vehicle immobilisation was the first such device used, and is still the only read-only transponder accepted by one of the world's leading insurance companies, Allianz. Since then, TI have more than 100 million read-only and encrypted transponders employed in the automotive market, and have seen a 90 percent drop in RFID-equipped auto thefts.

Sensors and Control pressure switches provide low cost controls for many automotive systems. The snap-action disc reacts to changing pressure by reversing its curvature and activating electrical switch contacts.The custom packaging can be used for line or pump mount applications.
