Suprema Intros RFID-enabled Fingerprint Access-Control Device

Suprema, a global provider of biometrics and security solutions, has announced the launch of its BioEntry P2 mullion-type fingerprint access-control device. According to the company, the device has a slim design and provides multi-card-reading capability.

BioEntry P2 is designed for both enterprise-level access-control systems and small to medium businesses. It comes with a 1.0 GHz CPU, the company reports, and can achieve speeds of up to 10,000 matches per second. It contains 8 GB of memory, can accommodate up to 10,000 users simultaneously and provides instant matching results with minimal lag time.

The system combines a fingerprint algorithm, an optical fingerprint sensor and dual-band RFID technology. The latest algorithm is more accurate than its predecessor, according to the company, and reduces false rejection rates, thereby improving security. It can compensate for unsatisfactory fingerprint captures, including direct sunlight conditions and distorted finger images.

Supporting all HID multiCLASS-compatible RFID standards, the device features both LF (125 kHz) and HF (13.56 MHz) RFID technology and can read most types of RFID card standards with a single device. These include MIFARE, HID iCLASS, DESFire, FeliCa, HID Prox, EM and NFC.

"The new BioEntry P2 is the spearhead of our 2nd generation access control line-up and it clearly reflects Suprema's commitment to enterprise-level markets," said Hanchul Kim, Suprema's director of global business. "From the initial design stage, we aimed to bring the most versatile biometric access control solution regardless of RFID standards and size of the projects it covers."

"The primary market for BioEntry P2 is enterprise-level access-control systems, where there is significant demand for biometric solutions with ease of installation and future-proof technologies to cope with fast evolving authentication methods," Kim added in the statement. "Its innovative, multi-RFID reader covers most standards in the market, while it integrates with legacy systems as well as providing users with the capability of adopting new authentication methods into their existing system including RFID, mobile and biometrics."
