Biometric reader.

Access control based on palm vein pattern recognition
Biometric Reader - Recogtech


Fraud resistant

Simple configuration

One-minute registration

The biometric readers of Recogtech works on the basis of vein pattern recognition. The Palm-ID is a system based on PalmSecureTM. This is an extremely reliable security method developed by Fujitsu.

There are several biometric readers but the palm scanner is more secure than other biometrics because every palm has a unique vein pattern which can be scanned using an infrared camera. This type of biometric reader is considerably more resistant to fraud than fingerprint recognition. Are you looking for a biometric security solution for your organisation or home? The biometric reader of Recogtech is the ideal option.

Product information

The biometric palm reader consists of 3 components: a registration unit, a biometric reader and a controller. There are different biometric techniques, but the palm vein pattern is among the ones that are internal. Fingerprint, iris and face are all external biometric readers. Because of the large surface area, this type of biometric reader is capturing over 5 million data points which is far more than in other techniques. This means an accuracy advantage compared to other biometric readers.

Registration unit
First the registration unit is used to record the vein pattern in the user’s palm. You only need to do this once. Instead of being stored as an image, the pattern is immediately encoded and stored digitally in the form of a registered template. 

Biometric reader
The biometric palm reader is installed and gives individual users access to rooms or data for which they have been granted autorisation. The biometric reader records the vein pattern of the palm and sends it to the controller.

The controller
The controller contains the database in which authorised individuals and their unique biometric characteristics are stored. It compares the vein pattern of the offered palm with the encrypted data in the database in real time.

Happy to share our knowledge

Better use of biometrics (readers) starts with a better understanding of the subject. That is why we are happy to share our knowledge. In the first instance, we do this by training and supporting our distribution partners. We also give talks to customers and regularly get round the table to offer advice on individual projects. Last but not least, we share information on biometrics via the knowledge base on this website.

Advantages biometric reader

  • Very user-friendly: use your vein to gain access
  • Extremely accurate and resistant to fraud
  • Easy to combine with existing security systems (like for example card readers)
  • Highest security at database level
  • Also available in a one device combination with card-reader: the Palm-ID Card is GDPR compliant (privacy proof)

About Recogtech

Recogtech was the first company in the world to use Fujitsu’s PalmSecureTM vein scanner to create an effective palm access control scanner based on recognition of the vein pattern in your hand. Director Eduard de Knegt, a member of the Dutch Association for Biometrics and Identity (VVBI), is also an authority in the area of biometrics himself.
