Nitgen Fingkey Hamster USB Fingerprint Reader is a coming of age fingerprint reader from the leading fingerprint reader manufacturer Nitgen. It is MIC, FCC, CE, and WHQL certifies and serves as a simple and accurate identification system. It also supports all other essential applications including fingerprint recognition, fingerprint verification, fingerprint scanning, fingerprint authentication, and fingerprint matching applications.
Nitgen Fingkey Hamster driver has a USB interface with full speed/high speed support. It is a plug and play device that supports multiple OS such as Windows Vista/XP/ 7/98/ME/2000.
