Lumidigm and Alphatronics are creating an outdoor biometric access control solution called OctoLine utilizing the Lumidigm Venus fingerprint sensor. The Alphatronics OctoLine is a set of modular components that can be configured into a custom access control solution. The Fingerscan biometric module employs Lumidigm’s fingerprint sensor in indoor or outdoor environments. Other OctoLine modules include contactless card readers (proximity and MIFARE), barcode scanners, LED displays, touch screens, and ticket printers. This rugged access control solution performs outdoors in all weather conditions.
“Alphatronics built their reputation on robust, reliable outdoor access control—they know it better than anyone,” said Bill Spence, Lumidigm’s Vice President of Transaction Systems. “Adding a biometric component expands their markets and meets a growing customer need for reliable fingerprint applications in harsh environments like ports, airports and transportation venues.”
