ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Sagem Morpho, leader in biometric access control and identity verification products, is pleased to announce the availability of the benchmark setting MorphoAccess 500 Series of indoor and outdoor biometric access control terminals. MA500 Series terminals feature dual-core ARM9 microprocessors with multi-thread processing capability, providing leading edge performance and versatility. The new terminals have internal database storage capacities of up to 50,000 records. All terminals in the MA500 Series feature a large area optical fingerprint sensor that is FBI PIV IQS certified and meets PIV FIPS 201 requirements. Versions are also available with internal contactless smartcard readers and fake finger detection.
Integrators and VARs will enjoy simplified field installation thanks to the MA500 Series Power-Over-Ethernet capability, internal USB port for database and configuration management, and 10/100 BaseT with DHCP capability. To simplify terminal set-up and maintenance, a complement of administrative software tools are offered at no charge. Additionally, Sagem Morpho is available to assist partners with the migration from MA200 and MA300 terminals to the MA500.
System developers will appreciate the terminals on-board security features that include a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for secure TCP/IP connectivity as well as antitheft and anti-tamper switches with status communications via TCP/IP. A Secure Access Module (SAM) interface is provided on the terminals main circuit board for use in authenticating card credentials.
The MA500 Series may be deployed with the newly released MorphoAccess Enrollment Management System 6.2 (MEMS 6.2), or with proprietary applications developed by integrators and VAR partners. Proprietary Windows based applications may be rapidly developed to interface with the MA500 Series using the Morpho Integrators Kit (MIK 3.2) with its Windows DLL components. Embedded applications may be developed to run directly on the MA500 to meet customer specific requirements by using the MorphoAccess 500 Software Development Kit (SDK) with its set of predefined terminal based DLLs. Also, to assist in development and ongoing maintenance, the MA500 Series is sold complete with a suite of seamlessly integrated software based management tools.
