SFU-550 features industry’s most advanced MDR(multi dynamic range) technology to capture exceptional image quality even under extreme lighting conditions (operates under direct sunlight up to 100,000 LUX). The scanner also features cutting-edge live fingerprint detection (LFD) technology for improved security against spoofing, and the latest version of multi award-winning Suprema algorithm for better performance. Combining high speed USB 2.0 interface and comprehensive SDK support, SFU-550 offers versatile platform for developers in leading security vendors, system integrators and hardware manufacturers.


Multi Dynamic Range (MDR) Technology

Suprema’s patented MDR technology guarantees exceptional fingerprint image quality even under extreme direct light conditions up to 100,000 LUX. While providing faster image capture speed of up to 6 ms, MDR technology allows superior sensing capability regardless of dryness as well as light conditions.

Live Fingerprint Detection(LFD)

SFU-550 features advanced Live Fingerprint Detection

technology. The technology effectively analyzes the dynamically changing pattern, liveness feature and unnaturalness feature of live and new fingers. The technology distinguishes fake fingerprints made from various materials including clay, rubber, silicon, glue, paper, film and more.
