3M Cogent CS500e

3M Cogent LiveScan for Tenprint Capture

The 3M Cogent CS500e LiveScan solution, featuring the CS500e scanner, is an easy-to-learn, user-friendly system that captures rolled and flat fingerprints. The software guides the operator through the capture process with on-screen prompts and graphical displays. Real-time image quality check, sequence verification, auto-center, and auto-contrast functions ensure the capture of high-quality prints.

The data entry process is simplified through the use of drop-down menus for selecting descriptive information such as race, sex, hair color, and eye color. This not only speeds up the capture process, but reduces operator errors. The intuitive software and hardware also allows users to become proficient with very little training, making the CS500e LiveScan solution ideal for high-volume processing environments.

The CS500e scanner is a lightweight, compact, yet powerful device. Its power USB 2.0 interface eliminates excessive cables, while the small footprint allows it to be easily integrated into new or existing applications. The CS500e is FBI-certified according to the IAFIS Image Quality Specifications (IQS) for scanners, Ingress Protection (IP) Level 54 compliant, FIPS 201 certified, and MIL-STD-810F certified.
