SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 10, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — SecuGen, the world’s leading optical fingerprint device vendor, is pleased to announce the availability of the SDA03M-WR, SDA04M-WR and SDA04-WR, water resistant OEM fingerprint modules intended for integration into IP-65 rated access control units and other devices made for outdoor use. The sensor components of these fingerprint modules are sealed around the edges of the platen to prevent water seepage into the sensor itself.
SDA Series OEM modules combine a fingerprint sensor and a board containing algorithms to extract and match fingerprint templates. The SDA03M as well as the water resistant version can hold up to 3,000 users’ fingerprint templates while the SDA04M and SDA04 can hold up to 10,000. The SDA04 is a FIPS 201 certified unit that is listed on the General Services Administration’s FIPS 201 Approved Products List (APL) for use in the Federal Government’s Personal Identity Verification (PIV) program.

“Many of our OEM partners develop access control devices for both indoor and outdoor use,” says Dan Riley, VP of Engineering for SecuGen. “A growing number of them have obtained an IP-65 rating for their products.
