Protect your job with biometrics – this all-in-one optical fingerprint sensor will make adding fingerprint detection and confirmation extremely 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 out packets of data to take images, detect prints, hash and search. You can also register new fingers directly – as much as 162 finger prints can be saved in the onboard FLASH memory. There’s a red LED in the lens that illuminate throughout a photo so you know its working.
We like this particular sensing unit because not just is it easy to use, it likewise includes relatively straight-forward Windows software application that makes checking the module simple – you can even register utilizing the software application and see a picture of the fingerprint on your computer system screen. However, of course, we wouldn’t leave you a datasheet and a “good luck!” – we composed a full Arduino library so that you can get running in under 10 minutes. The library can enroll and search so its perfect for any project. We have actually also composed an in-depth tutorial on wiring and usage. This is without a doubt the very best finger print sensing unit you can get.
