South Korean biometrics firm Suprema has launched a fingerprint terminal for access control and time and attendance that the company says will revolutionise the market.Called the BioStation 2, Suprema says the terminal uses powerful hardware and sophisticated algorithms to improve accuracy and provide matching speeds of up to 20,000 fingerprints per second.”I envision BioStation 2 as the beginning of a new era in biometrics. Recent advancements in technology have redefined the limits of a biometric terminal. A single terminal can offer the benefits of biometrics for a small office to a metropolitan area such as Miami,” said Young S. Moon, VP of Suprema Inc. “BioStation 2's potential is fully realized through BioStar 2. BioStar 2 will serve as a core for the Suprema's future ecosystem.”BioStation 2 features Power-over-Ethernet, Wiegand, IP65 certified exterior to allow system designers to place the terminal in both indoor and outdoor environment. The terminal also features extensive communication interfaces including TCP/IP, RS485, Wiegand and USB.
