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.
9600bps TTL serial interface
256*288 sensor resolution
Memory for 120 fingerprints
