Custom kits: iEvo at IFSEC

At IFSEC from June 17 to 19 at the ExCeL in London, attendees will see how they can create personalised biometric access control units, without altering the look or design of the fingerprint readers themselves. At stand A1755, iEvo will feature newly designed custom kits that let users include such options as card readers, increased template capacity and Power over Ethernet (PoE) while also providing Lumidigm multispectral fingerprint sensors.

Shaun Oakes, managing director of iEvo, said: “We are continually trying to push the boundaries within the security market and provide users with the most up to date advancements. From our customer feedback, we found that users wanted more flexibility and freedom to create a biometric access control system to suit their project and installation needs. Through our custom kit additions, users will be able to create their very own ievo system that is fully customisable and fully field serviceable while integrators will open new markets to win new business.”

The new custom kit lets customers tailor their own readers. For instance, if there is already a card reader at the site, customers can replace the card reader with options that let the biometric readers use most pre-existing cards. They can also provide a biometric template on the card, reducing their reliance on a central database. For users wanting to use identification mode (1:N search), ievo offers a standard capacity of up to 10,000 fingerprint templates and can be expanded to 50,000 templates.

By using PoE (Power over Ethernet) to power the control board, reader installation becomes faster, easier and more cost-effective the makers say. Wireless or Bluetooth communication can be used instead of a LAN. Now, one control board can handle an ingress and egress reader reducing overall hardware and installation costs. The unit can be fitted with a Two Line Screen, suitable the firms say for time and attendance applications in which users want to see the date and time they scan in and out. Lastly, the readers are available in custom colours.

Multispectral fingerprint sensors that use a technology specifically developed by Lumidigm to overcome the fingerprint capture problems found with conventional imaging systems. This is based on the use of multiple spectrums of light and optical techniques to extract unique fingerprint characteristics from the surface and subsurface of the skin. That subsurface capability is important because the fingerprint ridges seen on the surface of the finger have their foundation beneath the surface of the skin, in the capillary beds and other sub-dermal structures, says US-based Lumidigm, part of HID Global, an ASSA ABLOY Group brand; visit and
