03 Feb HID NOMAD 30 – Pocket Reader
The HID NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader is a fingerprint reader made for Windows, Android and iOS. The reader can be bundled with smartphones, tablets or laptops to provide rapid identification, ideal for use in the law enforcement industry as well as retail, medical, hospitality and education. Unlike many other fingerprint readers, this is a more affordable option, whilst maintaining the features and quality that the more expensive readers have.
The device will make the officer’s job easier, by allowing them to identify subjects without having to bring them back to a police station.
When in use, the user can open the app and the device will show two illuminated ‘landing lights’ that indicate that the device is ready to capture. There is an automated capture feature that captures the fingerprint instantaneously and ensures the image reaches the standard of quality that the FBI needs.
The patented, capacitive thin film transistor enables the device to capture images that remain within the FBI standards even in direct sunlight. This technology is also capable of capturing high quality images when the fingers are dirty, greasy or stained, which is usually something that delays the process.
The haptic motor in this device will alert you when the image has been successfully captured, by sending a vibration. This feature works hand in hand with the ‘landing lights’ and will inform officers that their image has been successfully captured without having to try a few times to get it right. Within the law enforcement industry this is an extremely useful feature, as it means officers do not have to be in close contact with potentially dangerous criminals for any longer than they need to.
The surface of the capacitive sensor of the pocket reader includes a glass coating that covers the sensor. This makes it more robust and resistant to scratches or impact. The sensor has been thoroughly tested with up to 1 million touches with no decrease in performance. Along with this, the NOMAD 30 has an Ingress Protection rating of 65 that protects against dust and water, making it perfect for a number of industries due to its resilience.
