LUX-IDent entered the RFID transponder market in 2002 as a part of the privately owned LUX Group which built on a long electrical engineering industry tradition in Lanškroun, Czech Republic. Anticipating the growing importance of contactless applications, the company started developing, producing and marketing transponders based on Radio Frequency Identification Technology.
To date we have supplied the market with more than 100 million transponders for applications ranging from access and security to industrial logistics. Our core competence lies in the production of RFID inlays in 125 kHz and 13.56 MHz frequency bands. Thanks to the in-house machine design and the broad interdisciplinary knowledge of our team, we can combine flexible antenna design and application-specific encapsulation while maintaining a leading price/quality ratio.
Making use of our strategic location in the heart of Europe, most products are exported to EU countries, with a growing clientele in the USA and Canada.
Our coil winding technology gives LUX‑IDent’s transponders an outstanding variability to meet different customers’ needs. We produce non‑capsulated transponders that range in diameters from 5 to 120 mm. While we are most often asked to produce round shaped coils for our clients, we also make different shapes and formats upon request. Sophisticated coil winding combined with fine frequency tuning gives LUX‑IDent transponders an excellent read/write performance.
In 2015 we implemented wire embedding technology, allowing us to produce larger amounts in a shorter time. Etched antenna technology is used for HF and UHF label inlays and labels, available in a range of standard designs or designed individually based on customer’s request and chip type.
Our machines are designed to be very productive and flexible. We can process different chips and chip modules from various IC manufacturers:
- CID Pack
For special projects we are open to discuss options for using other types of chips and chip modules.
Our antenna portfolio covers various formats and shapes. Our engineers are ready to help you to design your own antenna upon request.
It is our intention for the future to expand our activities in the global market while maintaining what we value most: the trust of our clients based on our commitment to consistent quality, customer needs and genuine personal care.
