Electric field communication (BAN) Touch Tag ® hands-free authentication system


  • The epoch-making authentication system makes it possible to authenticate individuals without holding a tag (card) over a reader
  • Authentication system using BAN that generates a modulated electric field around the human body and senses the modulation
  • Can be introduced to medical organizations, factories, and laboratories where individual authentication by card touch or biometrics has been difficult when you have your hands full or wear a mask and glovesinflatable water slide.


Ad-Sol Nissin’s hands-free authentication combining electric field communication (BAN) Touch Tag®, LF wireless communication, and ZigBee®

Solution overview

Ad-Sol Nissin has realized hands-free authentication with electric field communication Touch Tag®.

  • With this technology, the human body serves as the communication line. Using a minute electric field generated on the surface of the human body, data can be communicated between the tag and electrode.
  • Individuals can be identified and authenticated without having to hold up a tag, but by natural behavior, such as touching, sitting, or stepping on an electric field communication reader electrode.
  • Even in an environment where it has been difficult to introduce a security system, such as where people wear dust-free garments (protective clothes) and gloves, a high-accuracy authentication system can be created.
  • Because the tag is a semi-active, low-power consumption design, it can operate more than three years on a button battery. * This is the value measured by Ad-Sol Nissin.


Hands-free authentication system monitoring center

By creating a network system that connects the controller and the dedicated server with a LAN, the status of all the controllers and the terminal devices under governance of the system is uniformly controlled by a dedicated application (monitoring center equipment).
