FS50 is a professional Fingerprint Scanner from Futronic with 1.6 x 1.5 inch (40.64 x 38.10 mm) scanning area. Its advanced optical system can capture a high quality image in 0.1 second. It can also handle bad fingers such as dry, wet, blurred and scarred without any problem. Its scanning window is crown glass prism with a thickness of 33mm. There is also special anti-scratching coating on the scanning surface of the prism. This makes FS50 even more robust and ensures long term heavy duty usage in any harsh environment.

FS50 FIPS201/PIV can capture single finger, dual finger and roll finger image. It was certified by FBI to be compliant with PIV-071006 Image Quality Specification for Single Finger Reader. So FS50 meets the US Federal Information Processing Standard 201(FIPS 201) for Personal Identification Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors. It is also listed in the US General Services Administration (GSA) FIPS 201 Evaluation Program Approved Product List.

A unique serial number is factory-programmed into the USB Device Descriptor of each FS50. So every FS50 is traceable and this is very important for government identity management projects.
