Anviz Global has announced the launch of a new biometric time-and-attendance device, which the company says includes an alternate power source, in building case power supply is limited.
According to the company, in Nigeria as an example, chronic power shortages are an issue, and this is something that makes properly-functioning electronics problematic. “One survey found that the average Nigerian had access to power for about two hours a week,” the company said.
According to the company, its new device — the EP300 – provides a solution to this problem as it features a built-in 1100mAH Lithium battery as an alternate power source, so that in the event of an outage, the device will continue to function for up to six hours.
Anviz says it will have a booth set up with company representatives at IFSEC South Africa (booth J15), May 13-15 in Hall 2.
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, power outages have been a problem for biometric machines in the past in Africa. In Ghana, power outages have complicated the issuance of biometric passports.
