Integrated Biometrics unveils new FBI-compliant fingerprint scanner


Integrated Biometrics has unveiled Columbo Desktop FAP PIV 30 Scanner, a new fingerprint scanner designed for the military, law enforcement, airport/border security, finance and health care.

With sales already underway, Integrated Biometrics’ Columbo Desktop FAP PIV 30 Scanner features a minimal size and weight that makes it ideal for mobile applications.

The scanner includes a full featured SDK for effective integration into applications requiring high quality fingerprint images in indirect or direct sunlight, and is durable enough to withstand tough operating environments with minimal maintenance.

“The Columbo Desktop has the largest area platen for a single finger scanner that the FBI recognizes,” said Steve Thies, CEO of Integrated Biometrics. “This particular size scanner is rare in the marketplace and is designed to perform at the highest level with tablets, smartphones and PCs.”

The scanner is part of Integrated Biometrics’ focus on providing a line of products that increase mobilization of fixed station solutions.

Using a durable, patented light emitting sensor film, Integrated Biometrics’ fingerprint sensors are more conducive to mobile environments than other silicon or optical sensors.

The scanner works on dry or moist fingers and resists abrasion, while being up to 90-95% smaller and lighter than other optical scanners.

Previously reported, Integrated Biometrics signed an agreement for Akiyama Soluções Tecnológicas to be its exclusive master distributor for Brazil.
