Over the years, it has been proved that biometric security systems are ideal for most facilities that require high levels of protection. If yours is one amongst them, then it is likely that you use USB fingerprint scanning devices like the Nitgen Fingkey Hamster, which is one of the finest and most efficient products available in the market.
The Nitgen Fingkey Hamster, like most fingerprint scanners works on a system that calculates the fingerprint algorithms to identify and authenticate a person. So what are these algorithms? In simple words, they are points in the fingerprint of a person that are stored in the USB fingerprint scanners in a mathematical series.
The algorithm of the fingerprint SDK is known as recognition and is divided into three parts:
- The matching algorithm is used to find out matches comparing two templates provided by the extraction algorithm. It specifically compares the position of each point and structure.
- The extraction algorithm creates a series of processes, which are used to provide different characteristics of a particular fingerprint. This is then used for matching. It also provides the core, delta and the number of ridges of the print along with other supplementary information.
- The final one of the classification algorithm helps put each of the above sequences into a specific mode, i.e. the software recognizes a series and the classification helps it locate its match or extract the sequence.
These algorithms are ideal to differentiate fingerprints as they can be found and created in multiple ways. And since it is only a mathematical process, the scope of errors in the USB fingerprint scanner is highly reduced. These sequences enable easy and fast recognition, accurate ratio and of course, excellent identification capability.
Nitgen is known to be one of the topmost brands for providing fingerprint reading devices as most of their products are based on these algorithms. Install them in your facility and enhance your existing biometric security systems.
