Milestones & History

An overview of our innovations



  • Comprehensive extension of the TELID®3T data logger series for the fields of medicine and logistics (low/high temperature monitoring).
    • The new design features an external, remote temperature sensor made of stainless steel. This special variant enables a fast response time, higher measurement precision and temperature measurement in hard-to-reach areas, liquids, tissue or other materials.


  • Continuation of the development of OEM handheld modules for HF, UHF and LEGIC technology for industrial handhelds from various suppliers.
  • Further development of the TELID®2 product series with NFC-compatible passive sensor transponders TELID®2.m
  • Launch of a new system solution for vibration monitoring. For measuring vibration, shock events or rotations. 
    • The system includes an intelligent vibration sensor that is permanently mounted on a moving object. It provides a unique identification of the measuring point, measures accelerations on up to 3 axes and can analyze them by means of an integrated Fast Fourier Transformation.


  • Market launch of the iID®wearable wristband reader. Mobile reader in the form of a smartwatch. Smart UHF RFID scanner for recording products in the logistics chain, components in materials management, and baggage in airport processes.
  • Extension of the collection and management system for bees: iID®inspect.
    • The system is a reliable helper for beekeepers who want to work mobile and efficiently. Special RFID hive sensor transponders realize the identification and temperature measurement of the honeycombs and the beehives. Thanks to this system, beekeepers have a practical way of managing the honeycomb without stressing their bees.


  • Project start with a new system for behavioral research of small animals, such as bees, clawed frogs (Xenopus), bumblebees, hornets, mice, ants, spiders, fish, which is based on the patented mic3® technology and new hardware.


  • Launch of the RFID/NFC moisture sensor transponder TELID®257.nfc. For measuring soil moisture, for example in flower pots. Complemented by the specially developed TELID®257.nfc FLOWERpot app for data collection via the NFC interface of a smartphone or tablet.


  • Launch of the RFID sensor data logger in half-chip card format - RFID sensor data loggers TELID®312 (temperature), TELID®322 (shock), TELID®332 (humidity) and TELID®342 (pressure).
  • Start of the first sampling of mini RFID transponders based on LEGIC chip technology ATC1024.
  • Presentation: 
    • the TELID® RFID temperature logger in WORLD RFID pallets in cooperation with Falkenhahn AG at LogiMAT in Stuttgart.
    • the first iID®PEN reader for the UHF frequency range at RFID Journal LIVE! in San Diego, California. The iID®PENsolid is optimized for use with current mobile devices in industrial environments.
    • of the new NFC sensor transponder TELID®232 with rectangular housing, which allows contactless measurement of ambient temperature and humidity at SENSOR+TEST 2015.


  • Expansion of the RFID reader portfolio with LEGIC security functionality with the iID®DESKTOPsmart.
  • Development of the hermetically protected RFID pressure sensors TELID®243 and TELID®343 in cooperation with the company KELLER Druckmesstechnik.
  • Launch of the TELID® RFID sensor transponder for contactless measurement of temperature, humidity, pressure, vibration as well as inclination and visualization the measured values with the RFID read-write device iID®POCKETwork.


  • Presentation of the iID®POCKETwork. A mobile all-rounder in chip card format.
  • Extensive expansion of the range of HF and UHF TELID® sensor transponders and data loggers. 
  • Market launch of the iID® POCKETwork with integrated Bluetooth™ HID functionality, display and memory for offline data collection.


  • Expansion of the range of TELID®Sensor transponders to types TELID®257 for measuring soil moisture using NFC and TELID®283 for vibration measurements.
  • Launch of the iID®PENmotion. A PENreader with 3D motion sensor. The next generation of mobile RFID Bluetooth readers.


  • Introduction of UHF components. Focus initially on miniaturized UHF transponders for metallic environments.
  • Launch of the iID®stick reader, which belongs to the RFID product family with LEGIC® functionality.
  • Honoring of the telemetry system, which was developed in cooperation with RAUMEDIC and other industry partners, with the Medica Excellence Award 2011.


  • Market launch of
    • TELID®soft 4.0 - The new generation of programming and analysis software TELID®soft for TELID® RFID data loggers. 
    • the new iID®MAJA RFID system solution for bee identification and behavioral research with RFID technology.
    • iID®network and iID®HOST - RFID servers for complex RFID hardware system solutions.


  • Presentation of the new RFID read-write device - the "iID® DESKTOPsmart" at CeBIT 2008.
  • Nomination as one of four current RFID projects under the title "Behavioral Studies of Bees with RFID Technology - mic3® 64 RO - the world's smallest RFID Transponder" at the RFID Show in Paris.
