Integrated Biometrics FBI-compliant fingerprint sensor in AMREL tablet

May 7, 2015 - 

Integrated Biometrics has integrated the Sherlock two-finger roll scanner into AMREL’s Flexpedient AT80B Rugged Tablet.

Weighing only 60 grams and ergonomically easy to use, the Sherlock mobile sensor offers a range of features and benefits, including the fact that it doesn’t recognize latent prints, operating in direct sunlight, doesn’t generate light when used in darkness, is durable and shock-resistant, is always set on automatic self calibration mode, and is resistant to finger contaminants.

“The compact, durable design of Sherlock is well-suited to mobile applications where minimal size and weight have significant value,” said Integrated Biometrics CEO Steve Thies. “Sherlock has multiple applications for military, law enforcement, airport and border security, financial institutions and health care. Our patented LES film is durable and shock-proof and has been tested to over one million touches without impact on image quality.”

AMREL’s lightweight Flexpedient AT80B Android tablet has an IP67 rating, which makes it an ideal device for operating in challenging environments.

Additionally, the sunlight readable display features a special optical bonding designed for durability and legibility.

“The rugged Sherlock is a good match for AT80B tablet,” said Richard Lane, AMREL’s VP for strategic business development. “Designed for quick customization, the AT80B easily integrated the Sherlock sensor, while preserving the tablet’s extraordinary structural strength. The new rugged biometric device handles and acts as if it were built form the ground up as a single tough operational unit.

“Already we have seen interest in the Flexpedient AT80B tablet for combat, first responders, and event applications. It’s ideal for field enrollment, which can save a police officer a trip to the booking station. Since it is rugged, it is reliable at a critical moment.”
