Rapid or Fast Identification
THE SMALLEST, PLUG AND PLAY FINGERPRINT
READER FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT
The NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader for Windows®, Android™ and iOS is an affordable fingerprint reader which can be bundled with smartphones, tablets or laptops to easily perform rapid/fast identification. Its mobile nature is perfect for identifying subjects without having to bring the person back to an office or police station.
Automated Capture Process
Once a law enforcement officer starts the workflow in the smartphone app to capture both index fingers, illuminated “landing lights” indicate that the device is ready to capture. The automated capture feature makes sure an image is captured automatically, when the image quality meets recognized image quality standards such as the FBI’s.
Images in Direct Sunlight
The patented, capacitive thin film transistor (TFT) enables the reader to capture superior fingerprint images that meet FBI standards such as Personal Identification Verification (PIV) whether in indirect or direct sunlight. The same technology also facilitates the capturing of dry or dirty fingers, or when fingerprint surfaces are inked or stained.
A haptic motor* in the NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader gives a vibration as an additional indication of successful image capture notification. This feature combined with the landing lights make it easy for officers to know that a good print was captured, saving valuable time for unnecessary quality checks during an operation. It also allows the officer to avoid close contact with potentially dangerous subjects for more than a few seconds.
The top surface of the capacitive sensor on the NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader module includes a glass coating that protects the sensor by making it more resistant to scratches or impact. It is more durable for mobile use cases thanks to this protection layer combined with an Ingress Protection (IP) 65 rating for dust and water. The sensor has been tested for up to 1 million touches without a decrease in performance.
