MAN Diesel, Augsburg, Germany, has combined two contactless identification technologies on a single smart card chip for its new employee badge. LEGIC’s card-in-card solution is the technological backbone for the badges.
The new card includes access control, time & attendance and cashless payments for more than 3,000 employees at MAN Diesel’s Germany plant. In addition, German employees will also have access to the company’s Denmark factories in the future.
LEGIC card-in-card solution runs as secure applets on third-party smart cards which make it possible to combine different contactless systems on a dual interface card while supporting contact-based applications such as logical access.
The LEGIC card can thus be used in nine shops, eight canteen tills, eight top-up stations, 44 vending machines and over 50 access control and time & attendance terminals supplied by various manufacturers.
In other LEGIC news, the company announced that a partnership with Swiss card printer BadgeCom allows LEGIC to offer new printer and chip card solutions which incorporate the LEGIC contactless smart card technology. BadgeCom offers all the services associated with the introduction of chip card solutions, from card printers via plastic cards and accessories to personalization services.
