Replacement: None. Sadly, this product has become obsolete which means it's time for it to step aside and make way for newer, cooler stuff in the catalog. This page is for reference only.
Description: This is a low-cost finger print scanner with a slide type sensor where the user slides their finger over the scanner. The ARA-ME-01 uses a simple serial interface that makes identifying users by their finger print fast and easy. This scanner is capable of gathering and storing unique finger prints. Simply hold your finger on the optical scanner, query the device over serial, and you will be issued a unique ID. Use that ID within your embedded system to determine access levels, time clocks, door locks, etc.
Unit includes scanning element and control board. We are trying to get pigtail interface cables made but in the interim, you will need to create your own connection to the serial connector.
