Safran Identity & Security, a global leader in identity and security solutions, announces the launch of MorphoAccess® SIGMA Extreme, its new access and time fingerprint terminal. This device is the newest addition to the award-winning SIGMA family of fingerprint readers, which replaces the MorphoAccess and Bioscrypt 4G legacy ranges. Based on the same platform as the entire SIGMA product line, the outdoor MA SIGMA Extreme is specifically designed to operate in harsh conditions, resisting rain, snow, dust and salt mist. The ruggedized biometric reader is designed for secure access control in challenging environments, such as mines, seaports, airports and industrial sites.
The MA SIGMA Extreme, including its large touchscreen, is rated IK091: it withstands strong impacts and is resistant to vandalism. In addition, all components adapt to demanding operating conditions, such as a field-proven, large area optical fingerprint sensor, a high visibility display which automatically adjusts to the ambient light and a powerful loudspeaker suited to noisy environments.
The Safran Identity & Security fingerprint technology, ranked #1 by NIST2 for accuracy, enables fast user matching and incorporates advanced features to deal with the challenges of dirty and damaged fingerprints. For enhanced security, it also includes anti-fraud measures, including fake finger and face detection. In addition, the MA SIGMA Extreme integrates, among other functions, time and attendance features, an IP-based videophone, and an embedded web server.
“We have over 15 years’ experience in supplying access and time solutions to the harshest industries. With the entire SIGMA product family, integrators and partners have a complete and compatible range of biometric terminals for flexible and secure solutions using the world’s most accurate fingerprint technology”, said Samuel Fringant, Executive Vice President, Security Division at Safran Identity & Security.
