Powerful biometric access control from Captec
25 January 2012
As security threats involving crime and terrorism become more prominent, computer technology has become a powerful weapon in the fight against unauthorised access, increasing the need for more accurate authentication. Powerful, yet cost effective embedded computing devices, integrating biometric identification, have enhanced security measures to enable more reliable automated authentication, mitigating costs associated with human resource.
As technology has evolved and costs reduced, a wider range of security applications have become more complex and intelligence led, leading to the more widespread implementation of computerised biometric technology. One such example is Captec’s Biometric Terminal Device. This compact, embedded computer-based terminal integrates a fingerprint reader and integral display within a purpose designed case. It is suitable for use in a multitude of security applications, including access control, registration and authentication.
The rugged casing is tamperproof, yet ergonomic in design. Available in a small form factor, the device integrates a 3.5in touch-screen and a fingerprint reader. With flexible mounting options, it can be wall and pattress mounted and can be custom branded for OEM applications.
The biometric terminal is capable of reliable Power over Ethernet (POE) for safety and low cost installation. Alternatively, it can be battery powered for mobile applications. Fully loaded and configured with Microsoft Windows Embedded, any hosted application can communicate to a central server via Ethernet. Designed with a powerful low energy consumption ARM processor, the demands of the applications are balanced with the optimisation of thermal management and available power.
