Safran introducing new fingerprint terminal at ISC West
Safran Identity & Security will be launching its MorphoAccess SIGMA Extreme access and time fingerprint terminal at next week’s ISC West exhibition in Las Vegas.
This device is the newest addition to the SIGMA line of fingerprint readers, which replaces the MorphoAccess and Bioscrypt 4G legacy ranges. Based on the same platform as the entire SIGMA product line, the outdoor MA SIGMA Extreme is specifically designed to operate in harsh conditions, resisting rain, snow, dust and salt mist. The ruggedized biometric reader is designed for secure access control in challenging environments, such as mines, seaports, airports and industrial sites.
The MA SIGMA Extreme, including its large touchscreen, is rated IK09 and is able to withstand strong impacts and is resistant to vandalism. In addition, all components adapt to demanding operating conditions, such as a field-proven, large area optical fingerprint sensor, a high visibility display which automatically adjusts to the ambient light and a powerful loudspeaker suited to noisy environments.
Safran Identity & Security fingerprint technology enables fast user matching and incorporates advanced features to deal with the challenges of dirty and damaged fingerprints. For enhanced security, it also includes anti-fraud measures, including fake finger and face detection. In addition, the MA SIGMA Extreme integrates, among other functions, time and attendance features, an IP-based videophone, and an embedded web server.
“We have over 15 years’ experience in supplying access and time solutions to the harshest industries,” explained Samuel Fringant, Executive Vice President, Security Division at Safran Identity & Security. “With the entire SIGMA product family, integrators and partners have a complete and compatible range of biometric terminals for flexible and secure solutions using the world’s most accurate fingerprint technology.”
