Secugen Hamster Plus is a new-age fingerprint scanner from Secugen–one of the world’s largest fingerprint device vendors–that makes fingerprint matching easier and much more convenient. It is a compact and ergonomically designed biometric device that is capable of capturing fingerprint images from any finger, including the thumb. The fingerprint scanner supports a wide range of biometric security applications such as fingerprint recognition, fingerprint verification, fingerprint authentication, fingerprint scanning & fingerprint matching applications.
The hallmarks of this fingerprint reader from Secugen are the Auto-On and Smart Capture features. The Auto-On feature automatically turns on the sensor as soon as it detects a finger in the vicinity. The Secugen sensor is a high-quality, rugged and maintenance-free optical FDU03FRS fingerprint sensor and delivers ultra-precise images of very high resolution (500 dpi + 0.2%). Further, the Smart Capture feature ensures high-quality and distortion-free fingerprint images of 260×300 pixels even from difficult fingers such as dry, moist, scarred, marked, or stained fingers. Non-linear distortion is less than 0.1% and image grayscale is 256 shades (8-bit gray level). It has a generous platen area of 16.1mmx18.2 mm and effective sensing area of 12.7mmx14.9mm. Moreover, the fingerprint reader has an extremely high image capturing speed-0.1 seconds for continuous image capture speed and 0.2 seconds for snapshot image capture speed.
Secugen Hamster Plus is FCC, CE and RoHS certified and at only 100g (without stand) it is easily portable. An operating temperature of 0 to 40 degree Celsius and operating humidity of less than 90% RH makes it usable in rough environments. Moreover, equipped with SEIR fingerprint biometric technology, this fingerprint reader contains a prism that is absolutely resistant to shock, vibration, corrosion and even scratches.
Secugen Hamster Plus features a free Demo application to capture and save fingerprint as an image file and has an integrated finger guide. Thus it is entirely user-friendly. The USB 2.0 interface with a maximum communication speed of 12 mbps ensures quick transfer of data.
