Watson Mini Description
If you want a fingerprint scanner which is FBI Appendix F certified along with being light and small, then Watson Mini should be a natural choice for you. Its designers have put special emphasis on usability resulting in an easy-to-use interface. In addition, it does away with the requirement of repeated cleaning between finger rolls by doing away with a traditional glass prism. It instead uses IB’s patented LES technology to have the unique distinction of being world’s first optical scanner. This technology enables the Watson Mini to achieve the dual benefits of being fast and at the same time producing high quality images. In addition, it satisfies all the common requirements of ten print enrollment applications. Watson Mini is bundled with a SDK which supports integration of all its features in applications which require certified images of good quality to be captured.
Watson Mini Features
Watson Mini comes equipped with an SDK which enables its certified quality images to be used in applications or solutions which have specific business needs for such high quality fingerprint scans.
Able to withstand the toughest operating environments with minimal maintenance.
Typical power consumption 1.2w.
Provides accurate high-resolution fingerprint scans in virtually any environment: indirect or direct sunlight, a factory, etc. LES fingerprint sensor is not easily confused by foreign matter.
