Efficient and accurate
Easy ergonomic use
Embedded module applications


The Watson Mini two- finger roll scanner from Integrated Biometrics is the first fingerprint scanner from the maker to incorporate its patented LES technology. It guarantees high-quality images with full featured SDKs and is also capable of producing both dual print and single finger roll scan images.

The Watson Mini is ideally suited for applications that require 10 print enrolment and verification procedures. The sensor is built to work in the harshest of testing conditions, even under direct sunlight, and produce error free results even while dry and dirty fingers are used. The Watson Mini is also compatible with mobile computers and handheld devices running on Windows, Linux, Windows Mobile 6.5 and Android (4.0 and higher) operating systems.

Special Features

High accuracy with LES technology

The Watson Mini is a highly reliable biometric sensor that can work under any surrounding environmental conditions. Be it under direct sunlight or dry and dusty environments, the light emitting sensor technology produces high quality 800 x 750-pixel images. The Watson Mini is not easily misled by foreign matter and also has the ability to discard latent prints.

Efficient and sturdy build

The Watson Mini can perform 10 print enrollment procedures in cost effective ways compared to other parallel products. Furthermore, the module is capable of working at minimal power consumption levels (less than 300 mA when working and 40 mA under standby). The module is available in IP65 rated models and this can be upgraded to IP67 models on request.

Ergonomic use

Different from the conventional biometric scanners, the Watson Mini uses the light emitting sensor technology which makes the scanner capture high-quality impressions even after consecutive finger rolls without cleaning the sensing platform. This makes the Watson Mini an ideal candidate for applications where quick and accurate results are a requisite. The compatibility of the module with other handheld systems makes it an efficient choice.
