More Interest in Electric Cars Expands Chargemaster’s Use of RFID


CoreRFID have had a long term relationship with the UK’s number 1 electric vehicle charge-point provider, Chargemaster plc. RFID enabled cards, overprinted with Chargemaster’s branding, are used to identify vehicle owners when they plug in to any of the Polar Network’s 4000+ publicly accessible charge points. Electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular – the UK’s DVLA reported a 38% increase in e-car registrations over the same period last year with total registrations approaching the 20,000 mark by the end of June 2016.

A recent change in corporate branding meant Chargemaster needed a new look for their RFID cards. They also needed keyfob style RFID tags to offer to their clients as an alternative to their cards and tags branded specifically for their BMW and Tesla clients. We were happy to work with them on this project, ensuring that the new design tags were available on-time.

Here’s a video demonstrating one of the Chargemaster access point products – the UltraCharger 264. In it you can see how the RFID cards supplied by CoreRFID are used by Chargemaster alongside other technologies like ANPR and smart phone apps to provide users of electric vehicles with quick and convenient ways to recharge their car.
