  • Hi,

    I’m very new to this whole subject area, but am after some advice before I buy an inappropriate device. I’ve just started looking at using a fingerprint scanner as a means of authenticating a motor starter system run from a Windows 7 computer rather than a microprocessor. Could anyone advise me whether this scanner is suitable for use on a computer together with the software and additionally what method can be used to then provide an electrical output for the PC should there be a positive authentication attempt.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

No public wish lists :(
