Hamster Plus Description

The Secugen Hamster Plus Fingerprint Scanner uses patented SEIR technology to provide a robust and highly reliable biometric platform that can be used in applications supporting biometric authentication and identification.

SecuGen Hamster Plus sensor features Auto-On and Smart Capture technology. The Auto-On feature switches on the scanner whenever it detects a finger. The Smart Capture technology ensures the quality of the captured images at all times. By automatically adjusting the brightness of the sensor, Smart Capture allows the Hamster Plus to capture high quality fingerprints from a wide range of traditionally difficult fingers, including those from dry, wet, scarred or aged skin, and even in bright ambient conditions such as under direct sunlight. The ergonomically designed biometric authentication device is designed to capture images of any finger and thumb in a reliable manner. SecuGen Hamster Plus Software is compatible with various operation systems such as Android, Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows ME, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows 2000. Software developer and system integrators can use Hamster plus finger reader with fingerprint reader software to develop customized fingerprint matching software solutions. SecuGen Hamster Plus USB fingerprint reader is an ideal reader for most biometric security systems.

The perfect USB fingerprint scanner for YOU!

SecuGen Hamster Plus USB fingerprint scanners let your fingerprints act like digital passwords that cannot be lost, forgotten or stolen.


Hamster Plus has strong and dependable sensor surface, internal lens and electronic components which increases its durability an extra notch. Hamster Plus is very rugged and comes with high durability. It performs consistently high in indoor or outdoor locations. Hamster Plus comes equipped with a sensor prism which is virtually indestructible. It performs consistently high in indoor or outdoor locations.


Hamster Plus provides better overall performance due to decreased false rejection and acceptance as it delivers higher quality images. The image quality is high due to its patented optic design which produces distortion-free images from which data points are extracted for matching.


Auto-On™ feature provides easy and quick authentication due to automatic detection of a finger placed on the reader.

High durability and ruggedness

Hamster Plus performs well even in the presence of external contaminants such as oil, dirt and sweat. It is a highly rugged scanner and has good durability as it has built-in resistance to impact, scratches, drops, electrostatic shock, humidity and extreme temperatures.

Reliable performance

Hamster Plus performs well even in tough environments and conditions which are challenging in nature.

Fingerprint data protection

Hamster Plus protects fingerprint data by using templates which cannot be used to re-construct fingerprint images.

Ease of integration

Hamster Plus is compatible with a large number of SDKs (Software Development Kits) available for free. This allows easy integration of Hamster Plus into a variety of applications.

Device Recognition™

Hamster Plus comes in-built with Device Recognition™ features which allows the scanner to recognize and identify various types of fingerprint readers.


The sensors in Hamster-Plus are built to survive drops by having a tight assembly of its optic parts which do not require re-calibration in case it is dropped. SecuGen sensors are made with a hard quartz-like material that resists scratches, ESD, other general stresses and corrosion even though it has no special coating. This design of Hamster Plus is very different from other semiconductor-based sensors and other optical sensors in the market.


SecuGen Hamster Plus increases savings by reducing losses from system downtime and does away with costly replacements. This it achieves by delivering a high-quality product. This is also possible due to the fact that the design, development and manufacturing of Hamster Plus, just like other SecuGen products, is done internally which makes its products long-lasting.

Smart Capture™

Smart Capture™ technology provides high reliability and good accuracy. This due to the fact that as it consistently captures fingerprints from moist, dry, aged, difficult-to-scan and scarred fingers with high quality.

Patented optical technologies

Hamster Plus produces distortion free output using a technology known as Surface Enhanced Irregular Reflection (SEIR™). This technology produces clear and accurate images with high contrast along with a good signal-to-noise ratio.

Rejection of false fingerprints

Hamster Pro comes with the capability to reject false fingerprints such as 2-D fingerprint images such as photocopies and latent prints.

Greater sensor-to-sensor consistency

Hamster Plus works delivers highly accurate images when matching fingerprints enrolled at different locations with different fingerprint readers. This is possible due to Hamster Plus possessing a greater sensor-to-sensor consistency.

Multi-Device Connectivity™

Hamster Plus comes with a feature known as Multi-Device Connectivity™ which allows one computer to be connected to multiple fingerprint readers at the same time.

Hamster Plus Applications

  • Computer, network or internet security
  • Bank and financial systems
  • Medical information systems
