iD-USB SC/PIV from SecuGen is an USB device that combines fingerprint scanner and smart card reader. The device is certified by FBI as PIV-071006 (FIPS-201) compliant fingerprint reader.
The fingerprint scanner uses the same PIV-certified sensor as SecuGen’s Hamster IV. 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.
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).
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.
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.
