Startek (FM220)

If you need a PC-based fingerprint reader, the FM220U USB fingerprint reader is the product for you. An STQC Certified & Registered Device compliant single fingerprint scanner, this UIDAI approved authentication device was designed specifically to be used for Aadhaar.

Fast & Secure

This compact and elegant fingerprint scanner comes with USB 2.0 interface for high-speed transfers. It also has fast scanning and matching speeds for maximum efficiency. You have the ability to set different security levels for different False Rejection Rates (FRR)/False Acceptance Rates (FAR) demands. It also supports verification on different server platforms.

Practical Usability

The FM220U fingerprint scanner has been successfully tested and deployed in remote corners of India, and it has proven to work in dusty and harsh conditions. Shock-proof to prevent any damage caused by accidents, the FM220U is also protected against dust and water ingress. Its ergonomic design guides the finger to the optimal position for effective scanning. Thus, it not only provides non-distorted image quality, but it also comes with adjustable image magnification to ensure the best success rates when scanning children’s fingerprints. The high image resolution of 600 dpi ensures the highest quality image you could need.
