Integrated Biometrics Columbo is a small, light and fast FBI PIV 071006, FIPS 201 and FAP 30 (Mobile ID) certified single finger scanner. Columbo is available in desktop and embedded module (OEM) versions. Both versions are suitable for mobile applications where small size and weight have significant value. Columbo’s wide sensing area makes it extremely easy to use. This scanner meets the needs for both enrollment and verification applications. Captured images meet industry and international standards.
Columbo was built using LES technology. LES technology uses a hybrid capacitive/optical capture method. The device ensures high-quality fingerprint scanning even when dirty, dry or rough fingers are scanned. Its IP54 case protects the device from dust and water. The device comes with a full featured SDK to enable effective integration into applications.
Its compact nature makes it suitable for tough operating environments i.e. direct sunlight, harsh weather etc.
Columbo is highly power efficient (full scanning mode – 130mA; sleep mode – <2mA; standby mode <40mA).
IB’s patented Light Emitting Sensor (LES) film produces accurate high-resolution fingerprint images using this small and lightweight form factor device.
