Integrated Biometrics’ Columbo is a single fingerprint reader designed for desktop applications. It is certified as PIV / FIPS 201 and FBI Appendix F FAP 30 compliant fingerprint scanner.
The scanner is based on proprietary LES (Light Emitting Sensor) technology, which ensures high-quality fingerprint scanning even when dirty, dry or rough fingers are scanned.
The manufacturer specifies that the device has IP54 Ingress protection, meaning that it is protected from dust and splashing water.
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).
Futronic’s FS82 USB 2.0 Fingerprint Smart Card Scanner is a combination of FS80H fingerprint scanner hardware and ISO7816 smart card reader.
The fingerprint and smart card readers can be used together for two-factor authentication. A fingerprint template is stored on smart card and can be compared with a fingerprint scanned with the fingerprint scanner. Also the fingerprint reader and smartcard reader can be used separately.
The fingerprint reader part features precise optics and infra-red illumination that allow to scan wet, dry, blurred and other problematic fingerprints reliably.
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.
