Large sensing area (13.2 x 25 mm2) and high resolution (500 and 569 dpi)
These features have to be carefully considered when evaluating the quality of a fingerprint scanner. In fact, a large sensing area improves recognition performance since a larger number of minutiae can be detected (see minutiae) and the overlapping area of two fingerprint images, taken in different moments, is significantly maximized. This increases the overall accuracy (smaller FAR) and, above all, greatly reduces the false rejections (FRR) caused by incorrect finger placements. Furthermore, the higher is the resolution, the more details can be located in the fingerprint pattern.
Automatic finger detection
Fx2100-basic can operate an autonomous detection of the finger presence on the sensor platen, without charging the CPU of the connected PC. A green, blinking led indicates that the autodetection is on.
All the information in transit between the scanner and the PC are encrypted. Fx2100 implements some encryption algorithms and can follow several distinct procedures negotiated with the PC at the initialization time. 128-bit "state of the art" symmetric algorithms are used together with non-repeatable keys, to secure the communications with the PC.
Live showing the captured images is a valid help at acquisition time to better adjust the finger position and pressure. However, showing fingerprint patterns in "clear" on the screen can be dangerous from a security point of view, since:
- a virus or a worm might try to capture the images displayed on the screen
- having other people looking at our fingerprints displayed on the screen might not be acceptable in some applications
Fx2100 provides an excellent solution to this problem: the “blind” mode. The scanner computes in hardware the silhouette and the contrast of the fingerprint image and sends them to the PC for real-time presentation.
Fx2100 is available with USB 2.0 interface.
The Fx2100 scanner is available also as SC version (with an integrated Smart Card reader). The reader is detected by the Operating System as a standard PC/SC device and can be used by every application (third party also) to read/write most of the existing Smart Cards and Memory Cards.
Fx2100-basic SC is a very cost-effective solution for applications requiring to store biometric templates on Smart Cards released to the users (max. privacy), and in secure applications of Digital Signature.
Il lettore integrato in Fx2100 SC può essere infatti utilizzato per la Firma Digitale tramite i certificati di Firma rilasciati dai Certificatori riconosciuti dall’AIPA.
Fx2100 is available also as OEM version (without the external cover); the OEM scanner is suitable for integrations in third party devices. However, Fx2100-basic OEM is not a stand-alone system and therefore requires a PC running the recognition software.
SUN technology can broaden the application range of fingerprint scanners to environments where sun light is strong and incident to the scanner, reducing its interference and in fact shielding the reader from this condition. SUN has the same excellent optical characteristics of the devices such as the resolution, the capture area, image quality and reliability. The SUN technology is optional, to be requested at order time.
The SUN technology is optional, available on various devices (to be requested at order time): Fx2100, FxQuicky Devices equipped with SUN technology distinguish from others devices for their green internal light.
Fx2100-basic driver also provides a TWAIN interface that enables the acquisition of fingerprint images through any software that supports this standard interface. Once installed, Fx2100-basic can be selected as a TWAIN image source from any application that supports the TWAIN interface.
