Biometric Scanner - Recogtech 

The biometric scanners of Recogtech works on the basis of vein pattern recognition. The Palm-ID is a system based on PalmSecureTM. This is an extremely reliable security method developed by Fujitsu.

There are several biometric scanners but the palm scanner is more secure than other biometrics because every palm has a unique vein pattern which can be scanned using an infrared camera. This type of biometric scanner is considerably more resistant to fraud than fingerprint recognition. Are you looking for a biometric security solution for your organisation or home? The biometric scanner of Recogtech is the ideal option.

Advantages biometric scanner

  • Very user-friendly: use your palm to gain access

  • Extremely accurate and resistant to fraud, more than other biometric scanners

  • Easy to combine with existing security systems (like for example card readers)

  • Highest security at database level

  • Also available in a one device combination with card-reader: the Palm-ID Card is GDPR compliant (privacy proof)

Product information

The biometric palm scanner consists of 3 components: a registration unit, a palm scanner and a controller. There are different biometric techniques, but the palm vein pattern is among the ones that are internal. Fingerprint, iris and face are all external biometric scanners. Because of the large surface area, this type of biometric scanner is capturing over 5 million data points which is far more than in other techniques. This means an accuracy advantage compared to other biometric scanners.

Registration unit
First the registration unit is used to record the vein pattern in the user's palm. You only need to do this once. Instead of being stored as an image, the pattern is immediately encoded and stored digitally in the form of a registered template. 

Biometric scanner
The biometric palm scanner is installed and gives individual users access to rooms or data for which they have been granted autorisation. The biometric scanner records the vein pattern of the palm and sends it to the controller.

The controller
The controller contains the database in which authorised individuals and their unique biometric characteristics are stored. It compares the vein pattern of the offered palm with the encrypted data in the database in real time.

Areas of application

The biometric scanner is an access control system that is used extensively within the justice system, as well as by government institutions and the banking and healthcare sectors. It is also becoming increasingly popular within the regular business community.

About Recogtech

Recogtech was the first company in the world to use Fujitsu’s PalmSecureTM palm reader to create an effective biometric access control scanner based on recognition of the vein pattern in your hand. Director Eduard de Knegt, a member of the Dutch Association for Biometrics and Identity (VVBI), is also an authority in the area of biometrics himself.

Proven technology for critical users
Recogtech has since acquired an excellent reputation in the field of biometric scanners and security in the Netherlands and abroad. Our solutions are used by the government and justice systems, by banks and hospitals, but also, for example, by multinationals with specific demands when it comes to the security level and convenience of their access and identification systems.

Winner of SSA Award
In 2011 Recogtech’s work was recognised with an SSA Award in the ‘solutions for government’ category. SSA (Safety & Security Amsterdam) is the Netherlands’ leading trade fair in the area of safety and security.
