Hamster Plus (Model: HSDU03P) is SecuGen’s legacy product that brings SecuGen’s fingerprinting expertise in a compact and lightweight form factor. Hamster product line has already earned a name for its high quality and performance, even in demanding applications and Hamster Plus is not an exception. Accuracy, ruggedness, and affordability are the other characteristics inherent to SecuGen Hamster Plus.

Advanced optical sensor

Hamster Plus is manufactured using a highly advanced optical sensor that uses SEIR (Surface Enhanced Irregular Reflection) optic technology, developed and patented by SecuGen. Powered by SEIR tech, SecuGen Hamster Plus can scan high contrast fingerprint images with very low distortion. Images with high contrast and low distortion are considered to be the best fingerprint images to process further.

This portable USB fingerprint reader comes equipped with a sensor, which is immune to scratches, impacts and vibrations. Its Smart Capture™ technology can scan dry, moist, aged, scarred and other difficult-to-scan fingers even in challenging environment such as high / low temperatures, high ambient lighting conditions, direct sunlight, etc.

SecuGen Hamster Plus USB scanner also comes equipped with Auto-On technology, which enables it to detect presence of a finger on the sensing surface. It allows the device to save power when idle and turn on automatically as soon as finger is placed on the sensor glass.

The ergonomically designed biometric authentication device is aimed to capture images of any finger and thumb in a reliable manner. SecuGen Hamster Plus is compatible with popular operating systems such as Android (version 3.1 and later), Microsoft Windows (version 10, 8.1, 8, 7, CE, Server 2012, 2008 R2), Linux and Java platform.

Seamlessly integrates with Windows Hello

If you intend to use Hamster Plus with Windows 10, it can seamlessly integrate with Windows Hello, the biometric authentication component of the Windows 10 operating system. There is no need to install additional fingerprint software or any other tool to make it work. SecuGen Hamster Plus driver is also installed automatically as you connect the device with your computer.

Easy to install

Connecting and setting up Hamster Plus is extremely easy. When connected to a USB port, SecuGen Hamster Plus driver (WBF – Windows Biometric Framework) is automatically installed via Windows Update on computers with Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or higher. SecuGen Hamster Plus driver (Model: HSDU03P) is also available on both Bayometric’s and SecuGen’s website to download and install manually.

Extensive support

Extensive documentation, support and SecuGen Hamster Plus SDK allow software developers and system integrators to easily integrate Hamster Plus with their Android, Linux and Windows based applications. It enables users to use fingerprint instead of PIN / password for improved security and enhanced user experience.


  • Manufactured using advance optical sensor with SEIR™ technology, developed and patented by SecuGen. This technology ensures highest quality fingerprint capture regardless your environmental conditions.
  • Smart Capture, another SecuGen patented technology enables Hamster Plus to scan dry, moist, aged, scarred, and difficult-to-scan fingers.
  • Equipped with Auto-on technology, which ensures power saving as well as availability of the device when needed. The device turns on as soon as the finger is placed on the sensor surface.
  • Highly durable platen made of hardened glass, which can withstand harsh environmental conditions, corrosion, impact, electrostatic shock, scratches, etc.
  • Maintenance-free device. SecuGen sensors do not need any coatings or special protection, unlike other semi-conductor based sensors, as they are made with hardened glass. Hamster Plus’s sensor thus efficiently resists electrostatic discharges, scratches, corrosion and can be wiped clean conveniently.
  • Comes with a tall, yet compact ergonomic design with a removable pedestal. Compact design ensures portability while ergonomics ensures high level of usability.
  • Captures high resolution fingerprint images (at 500 DPI).
  • Fully compliant to international biometric standards as well as those which are specific to the United States.

Perfect Fingerprint Reader for YOU!

SecuGen sensors are extremely accurate; thanks to the patented optic design that enables the acquisition of distortion-free images possible. Data points are extracted for matching from these images. Superior quality images equates to greater precision, less false rejections and acceptances, and better overall performance.


Do not let left behind fingerprints compromise your device’s performance or security. Hamster Plus comes equipped with the ability to reject 2D fingerprint images and latent prints.


Hamster Plus’s highly advanced optical sensor uses SEIR (Surface Enhanced Irregular Reflection) optic technology can scan high contrast fingerprint images with a very low distortion. Fingerprint images with high contrast and low distortion are considered to be the best because distortion can lead to errors in matching, which can further result in false acceptances or false rejections.


The Hamster Plus sensor is built to survive shocks due to 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 sensor is very different from other semiconductor-based sensors as well as other optical sensors in the market.


Programmers understand how an SDK can be a game changer while integrating fingerprint readers with custom solutions. SecuGen Hamster Plus SDK is a feature rich Software Developer Kit that incorporates minutiae-based recognition mechanism. It enables developers to integrate the fingerprint reader to the third party applications. Available free of cost, SecuGen Hamster Plus SDK is equipped with chart leading algorithms, which makes device integration effortless.


Hamster Plus’s durability stems from the high ruggedness of the SecuGen sensor it uses which has an unbreakable sensor prism. Sensors give consistent high quality output even in harsh and high usage scenarios. It provides dependable performance in both indoor and outdoor conditions.


Auto-On™ automatic finger detection technology can detect finger presence on the sensor surface and turn on the device as soon as the finger is placed on the sensor. As soon as it detects a finger placement on the sensing surface, it wakes the device and starts the scanning operation.

Smart Capture™ technology helps the device capture excellent quality fingerprints from moist, dry, scarred, aged or other difficult to scan fingers, allowing greater accuracy and reliability. It ensures the quality of the captured images at all times.


SecuGen’s fingerprint sensors are among the best-priced sensors in its category. SecuGen is able to offer lower costs, with consistent performance over years, as it designs, develops and manufactures its fingerprint sensors in-house. Despite being an affordable fingerprint reader, Hamster Plus does not make any compromises with quality.

SecuGen guarantees the very best quality product within the entire industry, which saves you the cost of replacements and prevent system downtime.


Hamster Plus is fully compatible with Windows Hello, Microsoft’s latest authentication system that comes as an inbuilt component with Windows 10 operating system. Hamster Plus integrates seamlessly with any device running Windows 10, thanks to inherent support for Windows Hello.
