Press Release Summary:
Made of highly conductive metalized fabric which forms Faraday cage, Select-A-Shield™ RF Shielded Key Fob Pouch prevents wireless devices from sending RFÂ signalsÂ to vehicle's electrical ignition and entry systems. Once wireless device is blocked from sending signals, attackers cannot communicate with device and gain access codes and entry to vehicle. Re-establishing communications is accomplished by opening and removing electronic entry device from pouch.

RF Pouch Isolates Wireless Car Entry/Starter Devices from Code Grabbers
Select-A-Shield™ RF isolation key fob bags permit secure access upon demand.
Canandaigua, NY USA: Select-A-Shield RF shielded key fob pouches are designed to prevent wireless entry devices from sending or receiving signals as well as securing device information. These small, flexible “Faraday cage” bags are increasingly being used by rental car companies, replacement remote key manufacturers and car owners to isolate wireless remote keys from RF access. With the rise in theft reports of keyless entry vehicles, this small, unpretentious pouch is a convenient security deterrent against criminals trying to communicate with a wireless car starter or entry device.
Placing a wireless electronic key in a Select-A-Shield RF isolation pouch prevents the device from sending Radio Frequency (RF) signals to the vehicle’s electrical ignition and entry systems. Once the wireless device is blocked from sending signals, attackers cannot communicate with the device and gain access codes and entry to the vehicle.
Reestablishing communications is simply accomplished by opening and removing the electronic entry device from the Select-A-Shield bag.
Select-A-Shield RF isolation bags are made of highly conductive metalized fabric which forms a “Faraday cage”. Field tests have shown 99.99% average signal attenuation.
“We developed this US made fabric to yield high conductivity for a wide range of RF and EMI (electro-magnetic interference) shielding applications”, stated Lynne Woodworth, Chief Development Officer at SELECT, “We use this material to construct shielded enclosures small enough to secure key fobs and large enough to shield vehicles, machinery and communications equipment during test procedures. The increasing need to design shielding that assures RF / EMI isolation is what drives SELECT.”
Examples of current applications include
• rental companies can now able to remotely allow access to vehicles,
• isolation of toll road passes when not in use or in transit from the manufacturer
• Shield credit/debit cards with RFID chips from code grabbers.
The Select-A-Shield RF isolation key fob pouches are available in three different sizes and two closure options to accommodate application requirements.
