The palm scanner 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 solutions but the palm scanner is more secure than others because every palm has a unique vein pattern which can be scanned using an infrared camera. The palm scanner is the next-generation product which is considerably more resistant to fraud than fingerprint recognition. Towards your fingerprint, iris, or face, the palm vein pattern is internal.

Are you looking for an access solution to protect your premises or confidential data? The palm scanner of Recogtech is the ideal option.

Advantages palm scanner

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

  • Extremely accurate and resistant to fraud

  • 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)

How does the vein pattern recognition works?

The haemoglobin in your blood contains oxygen when it is transported from your lungs to the tissues in your body by your arteries. By the time the blood flows back to your heart via different arteries this oxygen has been released. Vein pattern recognition uses this difference between deoxidised and oxygenated haemoglobin. Deoxidised haemoglobin absorbs infrared light, making the vein pattern visible if you use a scanner to illuminate it with infrared light.

Product information

The palm scanner security access consists of 3 components: a registration unit, a palm scanner and a controller. There are different biometric solutions. Besides being accurate and fraud-proof, the palm scanner is also hygienic, quick and extremely easy to use. Users are very positive about the palm scanner. Also the palm has a larger surface area and is capturing over 5 million data points. This is far more than other techniques and therefore the palm scanner has the lowest false acceptance rate and false rejection rate compared to other biometrics..

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. 

Palm scanner
The palm scanner is installed and gives individual users access to rooms or data for which they have been granted autorisation. The palm 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.

About Recogtech

Recogtech was the first company in the world to use Fujitsu’s PalmSecureTM palm reader to create an effective palm 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 palm 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
As early as 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. From the beginning Recogtech has been an authority in the area of biometric security.
