Futronic's FS81 USB2.0 Fingerprint Scanner module uses advanced CMOS sensor technology and precise optical system to deliver high quality fingerprint image. It can capture a raw fingerprint image via USB2.0 into host system in 100ms. So it is good for any fingerprint recognition application.
FS81 has a 5 pins JST connector for connecting to USB host. Futronic provides USB drivers and API for capturing raw fingerprint image on MS Windows, Linux and Windows CE. So it is an ideal solution for adding fingerprint recognition to standalone devices.
The finger scanning window is a crown glass with a thickness of 14mm. It is much more reliable and robust compared to any semiconductor type fingerprint sensor.
The finger is illuminated by 4 infra-red LEDs during scanning and the light intensity is automatically adjusted according to scanning fingerprint's characteristics (wet, dry, blurred, etc) to optimize the quality of the captured fingerprint image.
Special electronic circuit is built into FS81 to do Live Finger Detection (LFD). With appropriate software in PC, user can select this LFD feature so that only live finger's fingerprint will be scanned into PC. Fake fingers made from silicone rubber, play-doh, etc, will be rejected. And the LFD feature is included in all Futronic's standard software.
