USB optical fingerprint reader

The U.are.U 4500 Fingerprint Reader is a USB peripheral perfect for individual desk top users, as well as multiple users in shared environments. It utilizes optical fingerprint scanning technology to achieve excellent image quality, a large capture area and superior reliability. A silicone coating allows it to read a wide range of fingerprints accurately and rapidly regardless of placement angle. Its compact design conserves desk space in enterprises, and its professional, modern appearance looks elegant in point-of-sale environments. And the high-quality metal casing resists unintentional movement.

It’s easy to use – simply place a finger on the scanning window and the reader quickly and automatically captures and encrypts the fingerprint image before sending it to the DigitalPersona FingerJet biometric engine for verification. When a fingerprint image is successfully captured, the reader gives a red flash for user feedback.

The U.are.U 4500 Fingerprint Reader is designed for use with a full range of Crossmatch software including their authentication solutions, as well as most of their U.are.U Software Development Kits. Whether you are an enterprise customer or a system integrator, Crossmatch’s biometric identity verification solutions provide a natural extension to your security system and applications.
