SecuGen Corporation announced that the Hamster Pro 20 fingerprint reader has been certified IP65.
The Hamster Pro 20 fingerprint reader successfully passed tests for both dust and water ingress, which were performed by third party testing organizations in South Korea.
The ultra-compact, highly precise, rugged and affordable fingerprint reader can be used in tough environments where water- and dust-resistance are necessary.
SecuGen’s portfolio of fingerprint readers have been widely deployed around the world in remote and challenging environments.
In addition to its IP65 certification, Hamster Pro 20 is FBI certified in meeting FAP 20 image quality requirements for use with the U.S. government’s PIV applications, as well as being STQC certified for use in the Indian Aadhaar program.
“Achieving an IP65 rating was beyond our initial design goals for this product. This is a clear benefit for SecuGen resellers around the world,” said Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen, “Our goal is and has always been to manufacture high quality fingerprint products at affordable prices. This is in the best interest of our global partners to supply the kind of rugged and reliable biometric devices demanded by their end-users. We are very pleased to add IP65 rating to the already impressive list of features of the Hamster Pro 20.”
