Smooth and secure vehicle access control


SPECTRE accept the challenge of fast-track security for your vehicles access, making it both secure and extremely smooth. When combined with the v2 UHF antenna, our ultra-high frequency identification module revolutionizes security and makes it much more discreet by doing away with the need for antenna wires.

Developed on the EPC1 Gen2 standard, the international standard ISO18000-63 and the UHF passive technologies, SPECTRE offers unequaled reading distances of up to 13 m / 42.65 ft *, and optimum reliability for greater vehicle access fluidity.

Exceptional performance makes SPECTRE the fastest reader on the vehicle identification market.

The highest security levels

STid is the first RFID manufacturer to have received First Level Security Certification (CSPN).
It’s a recognition of our unique know-how, the technological and security expertise that are implemented in your access architecture.

The SPECTRE module provides proven security levels and allows users to sign UHF credentials using encryption methods recognized by official data security agencies (such as the French national agency ANSSI). The signed EPC mode allows for faster identification and anti-cloning protection of UHF IDs while providing excellent reading performance.

Reader are compatible with the communication protocol SIA Open Supervised Device Protocol - OSDP™ V1 and V2.

logo sscp

Readers are compatible with the latest generation of open protocol SSCP (STid Secure Common Protocol). This protocol recommended by ANSSI uses data encryption (AES) and two-way “reader-controller” authentication to ensure security before any communication is allowed between the reader and the management system.

Easy integration

SPECTRE is compatible with standard communication interfaces ensuring a transparent integration in any type of access control system, new or existing. 
It supports many communication interfaces such as Wiegand, Data/Clock, as well as serial RS232 and RS485 connections.
For more fluidity, the reader can be controlled by ground loop or presence detector.

Simplified scalable installation

Up to 4 antennas can be connected to the SPECTRE module to cover all security issues and all configurations. Designed to be fully scalable and modular, it allows to manage up to 4 access lanes for a mixed fleet of vehicles (light, heavy, motorcycles...), whether identification on wide lanes or even distinct access control for 4 lanes of vehicles.

Green Conception by STid


Its green design means that SPECTRE reads fully passive credentials (no batteries).

The module can be operated by a ground loop or a presence sensor.




Certified OEM design quality process

Our expertise and know-how in contactless identification (RFID, Bluetooth®, NFC, etc.) have made STid the leader in France and one of the top European players in the design and production of UHF equipment.
In addition to a quality insurance incorporated into every level of the STid, we implemented a industrial engineering process dedicated to overall project management.

*Caution: information about the distance of communication: measured from the centre of the antenna, depending on the type of identifier, size of the identifier, operating environment of the reader, temperature, power supply voltage. RFID tag performance is influenced by its position on the windscreen, and depends on the windscreen type. The heat-reflective (or climate comfort) windscreens have a metallic film that blocks radio waves. Performances can be impaired. Use the non-treated area of the windscreen.
