U.are.U 5100 Module

Icon for U.are.U 5100 Module

The U.are.U 5100 Module is a PIV-certified optical fingerprint sensor module designed for integration into custom hardware.

The fingerprint sensor produces 500 ppi native images in ANSI and ISO/IEC standard formats., as well as 1000 ppi fingerprint images using interpolation. It is able to detect spoof or fake fingerprints.

The module's top surface has IP64 rate, meaning that it is completely sealed to protect its electronics against dust, physical contact and water projected by a nozzle. Therefore, the module can be integrated into devices with similar Ingress Protection rates to provide a completely rugged device.

This fingerprint reader is no longer available at Biometric Supply. Consider U.are.U 5160 Reader from DigitalPersona.
