Palm vein identification is something someone has probably heard about but not often experienced. It is a technology developed in Japan, which is widely used there. It provides high security (up to one million reference points) together with the highest accuracy that a biometric technology can offer. The biometric sensor uses a multispectral long near-infrared waves (850 and 940 nm), detecting low levels of oxygen vein blood and distinguishing it from living tissue. It is then transformed into a pattern which describes veins inside a person’s palm. The pattern is converted into a template – this is a mathematical model. The template gets encrypted and stored into a database and is matched with what is already stored for proper identification.
Access Control Features
The DCR-PV PALM VEIN READER is designed to scan palm veins and enter a digital model of the scanned pattern into the BioSmart database. Connection and data transmission are achieved via a USB interface.
The relay module is used in applications that require an additional layer of security between the device and lock, or that require door sensors, exit buttons, signals from security and fire alarms, or operate a gateway application. The device can be connected to all the supported biometric readers via the RS-485 interface. These devices send a dynamically changing signal following successful identification.
The BioSmart Studio v5 provides intuitive, powerful, and customizable software to manage your biometric devices. In addition, this system supports access control and time attendance modes, as well as multiple languages.
The BioSmart Studio v5 system is in continuous evolution: new functions are added almost daily. We also offer customized solutions so you can request application-specific functionality to receive a version that is fully suited to the needs of your company.
Easy integration is available from the start.
Open and free database server reduces your bill for the whole solution.
5FS80H Fingerprint Scanner is designed for enrollment and identification of fingerprints with the BioSmart-Studio v5 software as part of the Access Control and Time & Attendance System BioSmart.
FS80H Fingerprint Scanner uses advanced CMOS sensor technology and precise optical system to deliver high quality fingerprint image. It can capture an almost un-distorted raw fingerprint image into PC in 100ms. Its finger scanning window is a crown glass with a thickness of 14mm. So it is much more reliable and robust compared to any semiconductor type fingerprint sensor.
The finger is illuminated by 4 infra-red LEDs during scanning and the light intensity is automatically adjusted according to scanning fingerprint’s characteristics (wet, dry, blurred, etc) to optimize the quality of the captured fingerprint image.
Special electronic circuit is built into FS80H to do Live Finger Detection (LFD) . Fake fingers made from silicone rubber, play-doh, etc, will be rejected.
In the WTC2 terminals, we use optical fingerprint sensors with large scanning areas and high dpi, providing accurate and fast identification. The durability of the optical sensors has been confirmed upon installation and active daily use.
The terminal, WTC2, is an IP-based device for time attendance and/or access control solutions. It operates as part of the BioSmart system, together with the BioSmart Studio software, keeping a copy of the biometric templates and providing match on device.
The terminal can operate in small systems with just a couple of devices, and in large distributed systems with remote administration and updates. The keypad on the terminal has software-defined function buttons to allow in/out, lunch break, and sick leave registrations.
The 5M-O controller is designed for the identification of users using fingerprints and smart cards. It can also control a lock or a turnstile (from one side only). The 5M-O controller uses an optical fingerprint scanner that is reliably protected against scratches and spills.
The BioSmart UniPass controller is designed to operate two PV-WM or PV-TS readers via USB/Ethernet connection. The controller itself connects via a network to the BioSmart Studio v5 software, and is capable of controlling two locks or a turnstile via onboard relays.
The DCR Combo combines palmvein scanner and a contactless smart card reader supported different standards (Legic Advant, HID iClass SE, Mifare Desfire) into one desktop compact device. A SAM (Secure Access Module) is also possible built-in to increase the device security.
DCR Combo has a powerful ARM9 processor for on device image processing. It communicates with the smart card reader by internal secure serial interface. After a palmvein image is captured, ARM9 will process the image and generate a template for smart card storage, MoD (Match On Device) or MoC (Match On Card) processing.
DCR Combo is an ideal device for highly secure two-factor authentication application. A user can register palmvein biometric data and store on smart card (carried by user) and do MoD or MoC with a freshly captured a palm from scanner at the time of authentication. The registered biometric template will never leave the smart card that further enhances the system security.

The BioSmart PV-WM is a wall-mounted reader designed as an affordable yet powerful installation with palm vein identification support. The device operates via a UniPass controller, that can support two devices. This feature, as well as the lack of a screen and keyboard on the reader, allow for a reduced overall cost in installation when several readers are necessary.
Operation of BioSmart PV-WM reader is based on the technique of palm image generation in IR light of a certain wave length. Blood depleted of oxygen possesses a larger IR radiation absorption factor as compared to the living tissue of a palm. Thanks to this effect, veins hidden under cutaneous tissue become visible when scanned in IR range of the spectrum. Produced vein pattern is unique for each person, and the system uses it for further identification.
Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) allows establishing safe and protected connection between devices of different manufacturers. Among the main features of this protocol are bi-directional communication, read/write capabilities and AES-128 encryption.
One of the main advantages of OSDP is an increase of interoperability for different devices. OSDP implementation allows using third-party equipment, such as smart-card readers in BioSmart security management system.
BioSmart devices can also be used as biometric readers in existing access control system.
Connections are made using standard RS-485 connector. OSDP is already implemented in BioSmart PV-WTC terminal, and for other BioSmart devices this feature will be provided in nearest future.
