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.
The Cross Match Patrol and Patrol ID fingerprint readers are designed for quick fingerprint capture in various conditions. Both 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.
The Patrol ID reader is able to capture only flat fingerprints: four-finger slaps, dual thumbs or single flats.
The Patrol reader is a more complex model that is able to capture both rolled and flat fingerprints.
The FS64 ID Flat Fingerprint Scanner from Futronic is an FBI certified (Appendix F) fingerprint reader. The scanner captures four-finger slaps, dual thumbs, as well as single rolled and flat fingerprints.
The manufacturer specifies that the scanner features IP54 casing meaning that its internals are protected against dust, physical contact and water projected by a nozzle. The enforced construction consists of ABS outer shell and internal frame from aluminium alloy. The device is fully powered via USB and does not require external power supply.
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.
