Since 2006


At the beginning of 2006 a new field, at that time, in the area of high-frequency technology was opened up. Our first generation of passive UHF readers created a new development and production segment in a hitherto small niche market.


With the gradual transfer of overall responsibility for this business segment within the KATHREIN Group and our current 3rd generation of RFID readers and antennas, we set product and technology trends in the market of the rapidly growing AutoID-/IoT applications.


The successful introduction of the automotive standard TS 16949 was the starting point for OEM production volumes and logistics for one of the leading German automotive manufacturers.
