Product Description

Hamster Pro Duo CL is a multi-factor authentication device from SecuGen. It can be used for a number of applications like physical access control, National ID programs, personal identity verification and other authentication necessities. The device uses a smart card reader that uses NFC technology and a biometric fingerprint scanner for authentication purposes. This not only assures security but also end user convenience.

The Pro Duo CL uses the U20 fingerprint sensor which is the latest fingerprint technology from SecuGen. Combined with a contact less smart card reader, the device is not just technologically advanced but also sleek and ergonomically designed.

Equipped with SecuGen’s Auto-On and Fake finger rejection technologies, the reader is highly reliable. It produces high quality fingerprints in any environment owing to the rugged optical sensor that uses patented and patent pending technologies.

Special Features

  • High-performance, maintenance-free optical fingerprint sensor resistant to scratches, impact, vibration and electrostatic shock
  • Auto-On™ (Automatic Finger Placement Detection)
  • Fake Finger Rejection (currently supported on Windows; support for Android and Linux coming soon)
  • USB bus-powered, no additional power supply required
  • CCID compliant smart card reader with built-in antenna for NFC tag access, USB firmware adaptability, and SAM (Secure Access Module) slot for high level of security in contact less applications
  • Smart Capture™ (Automatic Image Adjustment to Accommodate Moist & Dry Fingers)
  • Sleek and ergonomic
  • Readily accessible for any finger


The use of multi-factor authentication systems is considered as one of the best practices in the interest of security and safety when it comes to infrastructure and personal files. The fact that biometric identities can neither be faked easily or used by others at their convenience is a clear advantage over conventional PINs and passwords.

The Pro Duo CL has been tested in the toughest working environments for reliability. It is capable of producing high quality images even under direct sunlight when scanning dry or moist fingers. The scanner can be counted on for flawless results.

Combined with an NFC smart card reader, the device can be used for a number of applications ranging from time and attendance to personal identity verification. The use of biometrics also addresses the security issues faced when conventional passwords are lost, misplaced or forgotten.
