Palm vein identification is something someone has probably heard about but not often experienced. It is a technology developed in Japan, which is widely used over there. It provides high security (up to one million reference points) together with the highest accuracy that a biometric technology can offer. The biometric sensor uses a multispectral long near-infrared waves (850 and 940 nm), detecting low levels of oxygen vein blood and distinguishing it from living tissue. It is then transformed into a pattern which describes veins inside a person’s palm. The pattern is converted into a template – a mathematical model. The template gets encrypted and stored into a database and is matched with what is already stored for proper identification.
- It is one of the fastest devices on the market. Supporting up to 2K templates (1 or 2 per user) in identification (1:many) or up to 300K templates in 2-factor authentication modes.
- The PV-WTC terminal can be any color you like, if this color is black. It fits perfectly into a production environment, onto a ship, into a warehouse, a restaurant, aretail store, or even next to a bank vault – anywhere you need a sturdy, robust, and flexible device. It is also executed as an IP65 housing.
- It is IP-based, standalone-enabled. A copy of the biometric templates is stored on the device and another one on the server, and they are constantly in sync. When the network connection is down, your system is still up and running. You can even create and enroll users from the device without external software.
- There is a SSL encrypted connection to the main server when it is used in network mode.
- Each terminal holds an integrated, fast, and accurate RFID reader for MIFARE® DESFire® EV1, HID Prox/iClass SE, and Legic Advant/Prime cards. Match on Card biometric verification is provided as well.
- There is a touch keypad to enter PINs, use as functional buttons in time attendance, or for device configuration. The buttons are software-defined to allow in/out, lunch break, or sick leave registrations.
- The terminal can be used together with the BioSmart Studio software or could be integrated with your software.
