Secugen iD- Serial

SecuGen iD-Serial
Fingerprint + Card Reader

Rugged build
Auto-On™ & Smart Capture™
Integrated finger guide


The SecuGen iD-Serial is one of the most versatile fingerprint authentication systems with serial interface connections in the market. What sets the SecuGen iD-Serial apart from other conventional biometric scanners is the Auto-On™ and smart capture features integrated into the product. While the Auto-On™ feature ensures the module is smart and energy efficient, the smart capture system ensures that the images captured are of highest quality irrespective of finger orientation.

The SecuGen iD-Serial uses a serial RS-232 interface along with the RJ 22 modular jack for flexible cable connections. This makes the module suitable for use in a variety of applications such as Point of Sale (POS), Time & attendance and any other application which uses a serial interface.

Special Features

Embedded algorithms

SecuGen iD-Serial has a flash memory of 128 MB and can hold the database of up to 10,000 users. The module also comes packed with embedded algorithms for a template extractor, a 1:1 matcher and a 1:N matching engine. The module has a transfer rate of 921 Kbps and matching speed less than 0.2 seconds.

Auto-On™ functionality

The Auto-On™ feature in the SecuGen iD-Serial ensures that the module works only when it detects a finger on the scanning platform. The automatic finger placement detection technology in the module automatically turns the module on and scans the finger impression without a prompt. This makes the module power efficient as it consumes less than 400 mA while working and 50 mA while idle.

Smart Capture™ technology

The Smart Capture™ technology integrated with the SecuGen iD-Serial has a direct control over the fingerprint brightness while scanning the image. The Smart Capture™ creates high quality images irrespective of the kind of finger used, be it wet, dry, scarred or aged fingers. The Smart Capture™ function helps the module capture images even under direct sunlight at a 500 DPI/ 260 x 300 pixel resolutions.
