The ID-SERIAL is a fingerprint authentication system designed for integration into applications such as point-of-sale (POS), time and attendance tracking or any other application where a serial interface is preferred. The ID-SERIAL incorporates SecuGen’s stand-alone SDA04P™ module, featuring a ruggedized, high image quality fingerprint optic module, an on-board processor, serial cable and external power supply.


In addition to fingerprint enrollment, matching and storage capabilities, the ID-SERIAL includes SecuGen’s high speed SecuSearch™ fingerprint identification algorithm for extremely fast 1:N search capabilities.


The ID-SERIAL has an RS-232 interface and uses an RJ-22 modular jack for maximum flexibility in cable configurations. The serial interface supports communication speeds up to 460800 BPS. Integration of the ID-SERIAL into any application is facilitated by the ID-SERIAL Developer’s Kit, which is sold separately.
