The Cross Match Guardian USB and FW are part of optical fingerprint scanners family intended for fast capture of all 10 fingerprints. The scanners are certified by FBI for both civil ID flats and full criminal ten-print flats. Scanners image quality complies with FBI’s IAFIS Appendix F specification.
These Guardian scanners are available as different models with high-speed USB 2.0 or IEEE 1394 (FireWire) interfaces, and options for rolled or flat-only fingerprints capture.
Scanner’s manufacturer specifies that scanner’s case is rugged to provide high tolerance for shock and vibration. The platen is heatened to eliminate condensation and halo effect. The scanner includes easy to understand pictograms, fully automatic image capture and instant quality check feedback to the user using LEDs.
The DactyScan40i from Green Bit is an optical fingerprint reader that is able to capture dual flat fingerprints and single rolled or flat fingerprints. The scanner is certified by FBI as IAFIS IQS Appendix F and PIV compliant.
The manufacturer specifies that the scanner is compact, has low power consumption from USB port, and thus is suitable for high-traffic mobile ID solutions, like border control, on-the-road identification, passport issuance etc. The device has also 10 LEDs (one for each finger) for more convenient capture of all 10 fingerprints from a person.
iD-USB SC from SecuGen is an USB device that combines fingerprint scanner and smart card reader.
The fingerprint scanner uses the same sensor as SecuGen’s Hamster Plus. The optical sensor features automatic finger placement detection that is used for enabling fingerprint scanning.
The embedded smart card reader is based on HID OMNIKEY 3121 hardware. It is compliant with ISO7816 and EMV 2000 level 1 standards. 5V, 3V and 1.8V smart cards are accepted. The reader supports PC/SC and PC/SC-based APIs.
SecuGen Hamster IV is an FBI FIPS 201 / PIV compliant optical fingerprint scanner with USB 2.0 connection. The scanner is based on a rugged and advanced optical sensor using patented SEIR fingerprint biometric technology.
SecuGen iD-USB SC/PIV is based on the same fingerprint sensor. It features fingerprint scanner and smart card reader in one device.
