With high resolution optical system & latest biometric
technology, Futronic Fin'Lock FS21 Fingerprint Access Control System
provides enterprises a secured but convenient access and attendance
control solution. It supports MiFare card(a contactless smart card
technology developed by Philips) so that any combination of
fingerprint, MiFare card and PIN can be used for access and attendance
control. If necessary, fingerprint can also be stored in MiFare card to
eliminate any possible privacy issue.
The FS21 uses a Digital Signal Processor for fingerprint
recognition. It can do full-match for 500 fingerprints in one second.
Full-match means the device matches the input fingerprint to all
fingerprints stored in the database before giving result. That is, the
matching does not stop even after getting preset matching score but
will continue to match all fingerprints and return the fingerprint that
has the highest score. This is a major advantage of Fin'Lock products
comparing with most other similar products available in the market
which stop the matching when preset score is reached. It is because
Full-Match is the most accurate way of fingerprint recognition and can
reduce the False Acceptance Ratio (FAR) to almost zero. It is a perfect
solution for application that needs to do 1-to-many matching with a
large fingerprint database.
Futronic FS21M can operate in both Local and Network mode. With
standard Ethernet interface, FS21Ms can be connected as a cluster via
LAN/Internet under the control of a single Fingerprint Authentication
Server(FAS) which is Futronic proprietary software running on Windows
2000/XP and Vista.
In network mode, fingerprints can be stored and recognized in the
FAS which can handle unlimited number of fingerprints. In local mode,
each FS21M can store up to 3000 fingerprints itself and can be used as
a standalone access and attendance control device.
