Guardian FW

Icon for Guardian FW

The Cross Match Guardian FW is a compact fingerprint reader for rapid capture of forensic quality ten-prints. The scanner is certified by FBI as IAFIS IQS Appendix F compliant and is chosen for US VISIT and other similar biometric deployments worldwide.

The flat fingerprints are captured as two four-print slaps and dual-thumbs. Single flats and rolled fingerprints can be also captured with the reader. The patented Auto Capture™ and Perfect Roll™ technologies allow quick and convenient capture of both rolled and flat fingerprints.

The device has compact design and is suitable for mobile applications as it is powered from FireWire port.

This fingerprint reader is no longer available at Biometric Supply. Consider a different fingerprint scanner from Cross Match. You may also consider a fingerprint scanner with multiple fingerprints capture from another manufacturer.
