SecuGen Hamster IV
SecuGen Hamster IV is the FBI Certified addition to SecuGen's popular and versatile fingerprint reader product line.
SecuGen Hamster IV is the FBI Certified addition to SecuGen's popular and versatile fingerprint reader product line. Packaged in a comfortable, ergonomic design, Hamster IV features the industry's most rugged and advanced optical sensor using patented SEIR fingerprint biometric technology.
Auto-On™ is an Automatic Finger Placement Detection technology that automatically checks for the presence of a finger. When used with Auto-On-compatible software*, the Hamster IV will turn on and scan your finger as soon as you touch the sensor - all without having to prompt the system.
Smart Capture™ ensures quality fingerprint scanning of difficult fingers. By automatically adjusting the brightness of the sensor, Smart Capture allows the Hamster IV 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.
Use SecuGen Hamster IV together with SecuGen's MINEX Certified Template Generator and Matcher to develop PIV-compliant applications that require fingerprint biometrics (available in a variety of SDKs).
