GSC facial recognition system

August 2010 Access Control & Identity Management

The 647-80 fingerprint and facial recognition system is ideal for access control and time and attendance (T&A) applications. The unit can identify the user by fingerprint, face or face + fingerprint. Multiple fingerprints per employee can be learnt so that, in the event of an injury to one finger, access can still be gained by the use of other fingers.

The 647-80 can operate as a simple standalone unit which will allow unrestricted access to valid users and is primarily intended for T&A applications. For access control, the unit connects to ProxNet using a 649-10 interface or ProxnetPro using a 822-10 interface.

The system has two high resolution cameras for improved facial recognition and an infrared illumination system that enables user identification even in a dark environment. The 647-80 features a 630 MHz high-speed processor and large capacity memory for the storage of templates and transactions.

The unit has a colour touch screen that provides the interface for system configuration and the enrolling of fingerprint/facial templates. The display also prompts the user to correctly position their face and indicates when the face is indentified.

For standalone applications the unit has a relay for operating a door strike and has provision for an exit pushbutton. In ProxNet and ProxnetPro systems these functions are provided by the interface. The unit also has a relay which can be wired to ring a bell for T&A applications.

A single 647-80 can be connected to a PC via RS232 (max. 30 metres). Multiple units can be connected using either TCP/IP (maximum 254 units) or RS485 (maximum 16 units). Note that RS485 requires the use of a 311-50 RS232/485 interface.

Simple PC software allows backing-up of fingerprint templates. The saved templates can be restored to the original unit and also uploaded to other units connected to the PC. The software is also used to download clocking records for processing in MP-Lite or TimeMaster. USB ports are also provided allowing data exchange between units using a Flash Drive and for downloading transaction data in a text format. The system is supplied with a 220 VAC.
