Secure your task with biometrics – this all-in-one optical fingerprint sensor will make including finger print detection and confirmation incredibly simple. These modules are usually utilized in safes – there’s a high powered DSP chip that does the image rendering, estimation, feature-finding and searching. Connect to any microcontroller or system with TTL serial, and send packets of data to take pictures, detect prints, hash and search. You can also enlist new fingers directly – as much as 162 finger prints can be kept in the onboard FLASH memory. There’s a red LED in the lens that lights up throughout an image so you know its working.
We like this specific sensor because not just is it easy to use, it also comes with fairly straight-forward Windows software that makes checking the module simple – you can even enroll using the software application and see an image of the finger print on your computer system screen. But, of course, we would not leave you a datasheet and a “best of luck!” – we wrote a complete Arduino library so that you can get running in under 10 minutes. The library can register and browse so its perfect for any job. We have actually likewise composed a detailed tutorial on wiring and use. This is without a doubt the best fingerprint sensing unit you can get.
