"H1E-USB series" USB authentication device


This desktop device may easily be connected to system equipment via USB interface. Since it performs all processes from capturing images and authentication to transmission of verification results within it, the burden on the system equipment is reduced, and the device may in compliances with various OSs, including Windows®. Highly secure systems can be established thanks to finger vein authentication.

  • The device can be fixed in place using the mounting holes in the bottom.
  • The finger guide is coated with an antibacterial material to ensure hygiene.
  • The authentication device implements image capture, conversion of data to template, registration, and authentication internally.
  • The finger vein authentication function is available with less burden on the host system equipment.
  • It is compatible with OSs such as Linux® and can be used in devices with no OS installed.*1

* The term "embedding in systems" means connection to the system equipment and attachment for use.
*1 Installation of a device driver on the host system equipment is required.

*1 The term "embedding in systems" means connection to the system equipment and attachment for use.
*2 Compatible with various OSs, including Windows®
(Windows® is the trademark or registered trademark of Microsoft Corporation in the United States and other countries.)
