 The SecuGen Advantage

The SecuGen sensor is well-known for its ruggedness and solid engineering, as well as its virtually indestructible sensor prism, which is made of a very hard quartz-like material that resists scratches, stress and corrosion.From the sensor surface to the internal lens and electronic components, all aspects of the SecuGen sensor were carefully designed and redesigned to work reliably and consistently for even the most demanding applications.

SecuGen sensors were tested under extreme conditions and have been proven to perform in high-traffic, outdoor and other rough environments. They resist exposure to:

– Subfreezing, arid, and tropical climates
– Electrostatic discharge (ESD)
– Impact, vibration, and shock
– Scratches to sensor prism even from sharp objects
– Contaminants and corrosives such as sweat, dirt, oil and cleaning agents

SecuGen sensors do not use any coatings or membranes, which are required by many semiconductor-based sensors and competitive optical sensors in the market in order to protect the delicate sensor components or to improve contact with the skin. Such coatings may be vulnerable to scratches and corrosion that can degrade the performance of the sensor over time and cause unexpected replacement or repair costs in the long run.

Additionally, the optic parts are tightly assembled so that if the sensors are ever dropped, there is no need for re-calibration, which is often necessary for smaller form-factor optical sensors that use an intricate arrangement of mirrors or lenses.

SecuGen sensors produce very high accuracy rates. In an independent test of major biometric products, carried out by International Biometric Group, SecuGen’s sensor and algorithm achieved 0.0% false acceptance and 0.0% false rejection rates.

An innovative optic design yields practically distortion-free, high-contrast images from which data points are used for enrollment and matching. SecuGen’s patented SEIR method eliminates the majority of distortion and image quality problems that are common to traditional optical sensors.

High quality images mean greater precision, less false rejection, less false acceptance, and better overall performance.

SecuGen sensors are made with advanced quality control techniques that further enhance the quality workmanship and materials that go into every single sensor.

If there is any defect or fault in the performance of a SecuGen sensor product, we will gladly replace or repair it for free under our Limited Warranty. SecuGen is committed to proactive, ongoing improvements in product development, manufacturing and QA processes with the goal of making the best quality fingerprint sensor in the market for all uses.
