Optical Fingerprint Module For Integration Into OEM Equipment

The U.are.U 4500 Module is a miniature USB fingerprint reader designed for integration into OEM equipment where fingerprint verification or identification is needed.

This self-contained module optically scans the fingerprint when the user touches the glowing window. Optical technology gives the highest quality fingerprint scans and reliability.

The U.are.U 4500 Module is designed to simplify OEM integration. The module is sealed from dust and includes convenient mounting features. The on-board electronics automatically control calibration, encryption, and data transfer over the USB interface.

A Heavy Duty version of the module is available for unattended public installations and other high-use applications.

The Small Footprint Outline version of the module is ideal for space-constrained applications such as keyboards, touch screens and POS terminals.

The U.are.U 4500 Module and DigitalPersona® Fingerprint Recognition Engine have an unmatched ability to authenticate even the most difficult fingerprints accurately and rapidly. DigitalPersonas enterprise solutions and developer tools are perfectly suited to this device.
