HID Global continues to set the global standard for reliable, high volume tenprint scanning. The Guardian 200 seamlessly integrates with HID's Integrale™ and MOBS software solutions, as well as customer screening and enrollment applications. Designed to address the challenges associated with high volume identity management applications, the Guardian 200 provides the simplest, fastest and highest quality certified fingerprint capture process.

Applicants are guided by easy to understand illuminated pictograms for attended and semi-attended processing. Because every applicant is unique, the Guardian captures images regardless of skin pigmentation and from both wet and dry fingers without the need to recalibrate the device or pretreat

the hands. Proprietary FlexFlat and FlexRoll features facilitate fingerprint image capture regardless of positioning on the platen. Our patented AutoCapture functionality ensures rapid capture of high quality images for error-free biometric data collection – eliminating the guesswork, errors and range of possible reprint issues. These features not only expedite the process and improve the overall applicant experience, but free the operator to focus on other critical screening and enrollment tasks.

Ideally suited for border control, national ID, and other expedited, high volume screening and enrollment applications, the Guardian 200 delivers enhanced security, proven reliability and a reduced total cost of ownership.
