Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a global technology and front-end solutions provider, announced today that it has joined the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program and received Lenel factory certification for its PalmEntry and PalmEntryXS systems with Lenel’s OnGuard access control platform. These products based on Fujitsu’s PalmSecure® palm vein imaging technology, gives OnGuard customers a hygienic, non-contact biometrics solution with near perfect user enrollment.

Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. has completed required factory testing at Lenel to validate the functionality of its PalmEntry system interface to the OnGuard platform.  “Fujitsu’s PalmEntry and PalmEntryXS interfacing allow customers to authenticate their user base,” said Gidon Lissai, director of strategic alliances, Lenel.  “We look forward to their continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program.

“The ability to interface PalmEntry and PalmEntryXS technology to Lenel’s OnGuard platform is extremely important because it will enable enrollment for individuals who cannot enroll with other biometric sensors such as fingerprint readers, because they have dry skin, use lotions, or their fingerprints may be ‘washed out’ due to their line of work,” said Randy Fox, vice president, currency handling and identity product solutions, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc.  “Because Fujitsu’s PalmSecure technology detects subcutaneous veins of the hand, it is not impacted by external surface skin factors such as lotions or scarring.

PalmEntry and PalmEntryXS physical access control systems rely on Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric technology. The Fujitsu PalmSecure biometric palm vein sensors use a near-infrared light to capture a user’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against the palm vein patterns of pre-enrolled users. Unlike other readers, the PalmSecure device does not come into contact with the skin, making it extremely hygienic, non-intrusive and unrestricted by external factors such as skin types and conditions.  Registration for PalmSecure technology users takes less than one minute, and authentication takes less than one second.
