Technically the FS51 module is an FS50 scanner without plastic case and USB cable. The module is intended for customers who want to integrate rolled or single/dual flat fingerprint scanner into their own hardware like handheld ID verification machine, portable voter registration station, etc.
The FS51 is FIPS 201 / PIV compliant device and is listed in the US General Services Administration (GSA) FIPS 201 Evaluation Program Approved Product List. The scanner features large platen area (1.6″ x 1.5″) that allows to scan single or dual flat fingerprints, or single rolled fingerprint.
FS51 sensor is rugged enough to be used in mobile solutions that may require heavy user interaction in various environments. The sensor has a thick 33mm crown glass prism with anti-scratch coating.
Each individual module includes a unique factory-programmed serial number. The scanner is traceable as it has a unique serial number factory-programmed into the USB Device Descriptor. Applications can read this number and store it into database duringe each scan. This feature is important for security systems and government identity management projects.
SecuGen Hamster Pro is a compact single fingerprint reader intended for projects, which need basic fingerprint scanning functionality for a reasonable price.
According to the manufacturer, the scanner is based on durable fingerprint sensor, which is impact-proof and resistant to scratches and other stresses. The sensor works well with dry, aged or scarred fingerprints.
SecuGen Hamster Plus is an USB 2.0 optical fingerprint scanner. The Hamster Plus is based on a rugged and advanced optical sensor using patented SEIR fingerprint biometric technology.
SecuGen iD-USB SC is based on the same fingerprint sensor. It features fingerprint scanner and smart card reader in one device.
Futronic FS81 is an OEM module version of FS80 fingerprint scanner. The module includes a CMOS sensor with precise optical system for fingerprint capture. The optical system allows to capture fingerprint images without any distortions.
Problematic fingerprints (wet, dry or blurred) can be reliably scanned with the module as it uses infra-red LEDs for finger illumination. Image quality optimization is obtained by automatical adjustment of illumination intensity for each finger.
FS81 module has rugged sensor with a crown glass scanning window (14 mm thickness).
