F18 is an innovative biometric fingerprint reader for access control application. Offering unparalleled performance by using an advanced algorithm for reliability, precision and excellent matching speed. The F18 features the fastest commercial-based fingerprint matching algorithm and ZK high-performance, high-image quality infrared detection fingerprint sensor. The device offers flexibility to be installed standalone or with any third party access control panels .that support standard Wiegand signal. All the operations can be done on the TFT-LCD color screen. The fingerprint image will be displayed on it. That will guide user to put finger on proper position and increase recognition rate. TCP/IP and RS485 are available that the device can be used in different network.
