Suprema launches BioStation 2

June 2015 Access Control & Identity Management

Suprema has launched BioStation 2, a new fingerprint terminal that re-defines the boundaries of biometric technology with unmatched performance in speed and accuracy.

BioStation 2 leverages powerful hardware and sophisticated algorithms to improve accuracy and provide matching speeds of up to 20 000 fingerprints per second. The terminal also features a new optical sensor that enhances the capture of wet or dry fingers.

BioStation 2 has Power-over-Ethernet, Wiegand, IP65 certified exterior to allow system designers to place the terminal in both an indoor and outdoor environment. The terminal also features extensive communication interfaces including TCP/IP, RS-485, Wiegand and USB.

BioStation 2 is a perfect extension to the BioStar 2 ecosystem. BioStar 2 is Suprema’s newly released Web-based open security platform. It supports a comprehensive API library to allow integrators to build a single unified security solution as well as an Extension Framework to allow developers to add key functionality directly into BioStar 2.

“The BioStation 2 is perfect for Africa,” says Walter Rautenbach, MD of neaMetrics the distributor of Suprema in southern Africa. “Its dust and water rating makes it flexible to install in any environment, its design a necessity for any corporate office and its unmatched performance a requirement for any size workforce.”

“I envision BioStation 2 as the beginning of a new era in biometrics. Recent advancements in technology have redefined the limits of a biometric terminal. A single terminal can offer the benefits of biometrics for a small office to a metropolitan area such as Miami,” says Young S. Moon, VP of Suprema Inc. “BioStation 2’s potential is fully realised through BioStar 2. It will serve as a core for the Suprema future ecosystem.”
