ievo ultimate™

The ievo ultimate is a CPNI certified fingerprint scanner that combines an industry-leading multispectral imaging sensor with advanced security features.

Employing a high-performance multispectral imaging (MSI) sensor, the ultimate delivers a cutting-edge biometric solution, simultaneously reading data from both the surface and subsurface levels of a fingerprint even when features are hard to distinguish due to factors such as dirt, moisture and damage.

With advanced encryption for data transmission, the ultimate fingerprint reader provides a highly accurate and quality image to reliably allow the ievo Control Board to perform 1:N matching of up to 50,000 (10,000 as standard) fingerprint templates. The reader unit itself does not store any user data for an additional level of protection.

Featuring an IP65 rating and built-in environmental controls, the ultimate reader is designed for external deployment and remains operational over time in harsh weather conditions.

Supporting proximity detection and clear LED and audio indications, the reader offers simplicity along with convenience to the user.

  • IP65 Rated

  • The ultimate fingerprint reader is IP (Ingress Protection) rated to industry standard 65:

    Totally protected against dust ingress.

    Protected against low-pressure water jets from any direction. Limited ingress permitted.

    With this rating, the ultimate is ideal for external and internal installations and harsh environment use.

  • Tackling Skin Debris

  • Utilising the advanced multispectral imaging sensor to enable a fingerprint image to be obtained even when some levels of dust, dirt, oils, creams or cosmetics are present on the skin; and also through some types of latex gloves. The ultimate provides a robust solution to work for you.
  • Liveness Detection

  • Certified for Government use in the UK by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) the ievo ultimate provides resistance to fake and spoof fingerprint attacks by using the industry’s best liveness detection sensor to capture detailed data from the surface and subsurface levels of a fingerprint.
  • Flexible Integration

  • ievo readers have been designed to assimilate with a large number of security systems via existing protocols. The system can be integrated into a host of access control systems and other security products for true flexibility.

Multispectral Imaging


The ievo ultimate uses multispectral imaging (MSI) technology to capture a highly accurate reading of a fingerprint. Scanning both surface and subsurface levels of the skin simultaneously, up to a depth of 4mm, this method uses multiple polarised and non-polarised lights to register between 1-100 reference points to build a true digital image (the average number of reference points for a good image is 40). The MSI process allows the reader to operate through a variety of most skin or environmental conditions that may otherwise hinder an accurate reading.
