This customized smartcard made of high-quality metal is coated all around with matt black ink and is individually designed according to your ideas and delivered within 48 hours after ordering.
We foster our reputation of being the quality leader in the field of modern and sustainable smartcards. That’s why we produce your digital business cards in our own production facility in Munich. Our graphics team will provide up to 3 non-binding design proposals in less than 24 hours, after sending the logo as well as the information for personalization (name and optional position / title). At the end of the purchase process you will receive the relevant contacts.
This is how we make it easy for you to switch from old-fashioned and not really practical paper business cards to a modern and elegant smartcard!
The premium metal smartcard impresses business contacts, for example potential customers or business partners. When visiting trade fairs, smartcards are the new and certainly enduring trend for passing on contacts and information material quickly and sustainably.
Sharing contact details, websites, social media profiles, videos and files has never been easier and faster than with Cloud2Go’s digital business cards!

Below you’ll find an overview of the unique features:
Even before you hold your new smartcard in your hands, you can set up a customer account in our cloud.
There you can upload all desired contact data (including social media profiles) and update them at any time.
In addition, the Cloud2Go Smartcard offers the function of a USB stick. You can store all common file formats such as PDFs with product information or videos in the cloud and provide them with different access rights.
Finally, you can design your profile individually. For instance with regard to the color world (background color, color of buttons and information) or through the use of the company logo.
Of course, there are also different access rights, so that, for example, in companies with more employees, central administration of several profiles is just as possible as direct access to individual profiles by the respective employees.
There are no ongoing costs with us and you get 2GB of storage space included.

Frequently asked
questions

NFC is rooted in radio-frequency identification technology (known as RFID) which allows compatible hardware to both supply power to and communicate with an otherwise unpowered and passive electronic tag using radio waves. 

 

Near-field communication (NFC) is a set of communication protocols that enables communication between two electronic devices over a distance of 4 centimetres (1.6 in) or less.

 

Like other proximity card technologies, NFC is based on inductive coupling between two electromgnetic coils present on a NFC-enabled device such as a smartphone. NFC communicating in one or both directions uses a frequency of 13.56 MHz in the globally available unlicensed radio frequency ISM band, compliant with the ISO/IEC 18000-3 air interface standard at data rates ranging from 106 to 848 kbit/s.

A proximity card or prox card also known as a key card or keycard is a contactless smart card which can be read without inserting it into a reader device, as required by earlier magnetic stripe cards such as credit cards and contact type smart cards.

The proximity cards are part of the contactless card technologies. Held near an electronic reader for a moment they execute a predefined function.

 

Generally, a distinction is made between the following two card types:

 

Passive cards

Passive 125 kHz cards – the more widely used type – are powered by radio frequency signals from the reader device and so have a limited range and must be held close to the reader unit. For example, they are used as keycards for access control doors in office buildings. A version with more memory, contactless smartcards, are used for other applications: library cardscontactless payment systems, and public transit fare cards. Passive cards are recently used as digital business card, as well.

 

Active cards

Active 125 kHz prox cards, sometimes called vicinity cards, are powered by an internal lithium battery. They can have a greater range, up to 2 meters (6 ft). Other contactless technologies like UHF (Ultra High Frequency) smart cards can reach up to 150 meters (500 ft) and are often used for applications where the card is read inside a vehicle, such as security gates which open when a vehicle with the access card inside approaches, or automated toll collection. The battery eventually runs down, however, and the card must be replaced after 2 to 7 years.

The following is a comparison of the commonly used NFC chip types for Connected Things projects. There are additional NFC chip types available, but they are old, uncommon or not often used for Connected Things projects.
