Placement flexM1

I bet there are products, but a lil coding a raspi and a NFC reader are the better option I guess.

Not if you don’t want problems with the unions or with the ISO 9001 inspector, depending on the level of certification the company is gunning for. DIY solutions are rarely an option for any but the smallest companies in such critical applications.

I’m talking about the company clock of course, not your own thing you do to clock in your own hours :slight_smile:

Hi has anybody tried installing flexm1 at this area? My hands are almost anatomically full already with chips and i am looking for an advice if anybody tried it at the location on the picture and whether which part of the hand is L3 located as discussed above



It is a good position, it has been used for xSeries, magnets, the older wedge Flexes like the FlexM1, the FlexDF etc

here is an example of a FlexDF installation I can think of in that position

As I mentioned above, the FlexM1 and FlexDF are the same form factor, and the FlexM1 you are considering, is more flexible than the newer Flex implants
see below.


The newer PCB Flex, like the FlexDF2,

has also been done, HOWEVER, the first versions of these had some issues with the chip seperating from the PCB slightly, causing failures.

A new design has been rigirously tested to eliminate /reduce the chance of this happening, BUT, I dont think the new design has been tested in vivo as yet, therefore not in that location yet.

All that to say, if you have the space to install, then I would see it as a viable option for you.

The skin there is a little thicker to get through so it will take some more force.
Ensure you go to AT LEAST the marking on the custom needle.

Good luck, keep us posted with your journey. ( there is actually very little documented installs there, so we would be happy to see yours )

I put my FlexM1 in that location. So far I haven’t had any issues with it and its Been in about a year.


Hi guys!

Ive just read this info about FLEXM1, it says does not share data or trigger events thru smartphone via NFC.

Am i right to assume that it will not interfere with the triggering of events and data transcendance via NFC from my existing chips even if i decide to put it side by side with my exusting chips?

This is my current layout and my plan… will the flexm1 range still interfere with my existing chips or its safe to put it there along side with them?

if you put them too close next to another high frequenxy implant it will interfere most likely at the SELECT stage. choose your placement wisely


No, you are not right.

This is technically not an NFC chip, but is a high frequency RFID chip. Some phones can communicate with it, and some can’t depending on which RFID/NFC chip set is used in the phone itself.

They use the same frequency, but they talk different protocols. It would be like having a French and English AM radio station broadcasting on the same frequency. You might be able to hear one or the other, but you might instead get an unintelligible mess.


Generally those 3 points are correct, and also what Zwack said is correct, but, there are exceptions.

FYI those 3 points on the webpage are actually links to more info.

Share data with NFC enabled smartphones

Trigger events on NFC devices like smartphones

Can’t make payments with this chip implant

Depends on your definition of payment, but it can be used for payment in closed systems if it is supported ( vending machines, cafeteria etc ) But also on some public transport systems, again, if it is supported

Looking at your CURRENT proposed plan

I still think this one :arrow_down: is a better option for you ( I think you will have better reads with fewer issues in that location )

unless there is another reason why you don’t want to put it there?..
