AFS 510 fingerprint scanner

Forensic quality biometric verification


As the most widely used biometric verification modality, fingerprint scanning offers highly reliable personal verification from ID issuance to high security access control and also border control applications.

AFS 510 is a perfect component in such systems, with its 10-print enrollment capability, including flat and rolled acquisition methods. This is an FBI-certified device (compliant with FBI IAFIS IQS Appendix F) providing forensic quality enrollment, with a list of smart features like auto capture, auto segmentation, sequence check and built-in NIST quality check. AFS 510 comes with a detailed SDK package that ensures easy integration into any IT environment.

Highlighted features


Full 10-print acquisition

The device uses a 4+4+2 fingerprint enrollment - this sequence is programmable according to user preferences.


Forensic quality

To meet governmental quality requirements, real-time NFIQ quality control and NIST WSQ output formats are included.



Illuminated pictograms guide the user during the enrollment procedure.


Robust design

This enrollment device is made for long-term, protected by a strong metal case.


SDK for integration

The scanner comes with a BioApi compliant SDK supporting various programming languages.



AFS-510 is amongst those selected models the FBI officially acknowledges (compliant with FBI IAFIS IQS Appendix F).

Smart features for perfect acquisition

AFS 510 does not simply scan fingerprints – it applies several smart features to ensure that the quality and overall performance of fingerprint acquisition is maximal. Some of these are:

  • Auto capture: in idle mode, the scanner automatically starts enrollment when the fingers are placed on the unit.
  • Sequence check: the software identifies which fingers are captured and requires re-scanning if the order is not correct.
  • Auto segmentation: as multiple fingers are scanned simultaneously, the system automatically segments the prints and saved the cropped images.
  • Live scanning: the device does not just take a snapshot of fingerprints but keeps scanning them in live mode until the gathered image reaches the predefined quality level.
  • Image quality check: the built-in quality check module makes sure that only those prints are accepted that comply with the user-defined quality value.
