Integrated Biometrics and SIC Biometrics say LES-powered IdentiFi enthusiastically received
The patented Light Emitting Sensor (LES) film developed by Integrated Biometrics provides the core capability of SIC Biometrics’ new “IdentiFi” series of devices, and is contributing to the product’s early success, the companies have announced.
The new IdentiFi products with IB’s Five-O FBI-certified scanner from SIC Biometrics were launched recently at Connect:ID. The IdentiFi line includes a FAP-45 sensor for two-finger flat or single-finger rolled fingerprints, or a FAP-50 sensor for four fingers.
“The reception our IdentiFi series has received has been extremely enthusiastic, and we believe the impressive track record of Integrated Biometrics’ sensors has played a big role in that early success,” adds Eric Talbot, founder and CEO of SIC Biometrics. “Our customers require wireless identification products that are fast, efficient and capture high-quality prints the first time. We’re proud to be meeting those needs.”
The scanners are impervious to natural or artificial bright light and do not require frequent cleaning or as much maintenance as other fingerprint technologies due to the properties of IB’s LES sensor film, according to the announcement.
“Our LES film is a breakthrough for the entire industry, and, as we predicted, has enabled a rapid expansion of new and unique identification applications,” says Integrated Biometrics Executive Vice President David Gerulski. “SIC’s IdentiFi series is a great example of how IB’s partners are using our products to create identification devices that exceed the most stringent requirements of law enforcement stakeholders determined to put the most powerful and versatile products in the hands of their field agents.”
SIC Biometrics has also launched an app to enable IdentiFi devices to be operated with wearables.
The U.S. Coast Guard recently purchased devices featuring IB’s Columbo scanner with LES technology to secure the country’s cargo facilities.
