The FS80H is a high quality optical fingerprint scanner with a rugged case and tough crown glass window. Futronic’s FS80H USB 2.0 Fingerprint Scanner uses advanced CMOS sensor technology and precise optical system to deliver a high quality fingerprint image. It can capture an almost un-distorted raw fingerprint image into a PC in 100ms, making it ideal for a fingerprint recognition application.
Its finger scanning window is 14mm thick, which means it is much more reliable and robust compared to any semiconductor-type fingerprint sensor.
The finger is illuminated by 4 infra-red LEDs during scanning and the light intensity is automatically adjusted according to a fingerprint’s characteristics (wet, dry, blurred, etc) to optimize the quality of the captured fingerprint image. A special electronic circuit is built into the FS80H to do Live Finger Detection (LFD). With the appropriate software in a PC, a user can select this LFD feature so that only a live fingerprint will be scanned. Fake fingers made from silicone, rubber, play-doh, etc, will be rejected.
