Today, a new article in the RFID Journal profiles the announcement that Accuride International has released an RFID-enabled access-control solution to allow its customers to protect the contents of cabinets and drawers without the need for keys. The Senseon Secure Access system consists of low-frequency (LF) 125 kHz readers connected to electronic locks integrated with the drawers’ sliding hardware so that the solution remains invisible to users. Individuals can tap a badge or fob containing an embedded LF RFID tag in order to open a locked cabinet or drawer.

The company is currently taking orders and is working to customize the system for each customer, says Greg Rewers, Accuride’s solutions marketing director. “They can submit drawings to us,” he adds, that can then be used to formulate the best solution for a particular piece of furniture.

“The system is designed to be easy to install, easy to program and easy to use,” Rewers states. The reader and locking mechanism have been tested for up to 50,000 locking cycles, so the RFID-enabled locking device is expected to have the same lifespan as the furniture. The readers are manufactured by Accuride, which obtains the badges and fobs from third-party suppliers.
