:: Introduction Hardware

Fingerprint Recognition Terminal (Hamster) is a Biometrics Fingerprint recognition based Time Attendance system with TCP/IP networking capabilities.
Hamster consists of a robust standalone Fingerprint terminal with LCD, Keypad, Fingerprint scanner, 800MHz processor, memory, communication and storage capabilities. Hamster does not depend on computer or external resources for its operations though it can work together with multiple Hamsters to provide centralized database and management capabilities.
Hamster is equipped robust Optical Fingerprint scanner with high quality fingerprint scanning and long life. It is not a low cost semiconductor scanner which is mainly for personnel use and cannot handle heavy scanning like in Time Attendance systems.
Hamster includes easy to use feature rich Time Attendance management software called Time-TRONIX TA. This is browser based software with easy to use graphical interfaces and context help. Time-TRONIX TA software can be installed on a single computer, LAN or Internet

:: Technology

  • Foolproof security with advanced fingerprint minutiae matching
  • Fast verification speed of less than one second
  • 1:1and 1:N matching
  • Supports both Verification and Identification modes
:: Economic
  • Low cost
  • Easy to install and use
  • Battery backup available
:: Hardware features
  • Hamster is a system with its own processing and storage capabilities. At the same time it support fast 10/100 base-T Ethernet TCP/IP networking with ability to network with central server and use both on system or on server processing/databases.

  • It is based on proven optical fingerprint scanning technology with 3D Live finger detection.

  • Surface of the scanner is scratch-resistant and it is not possible to scratch it even with a blade or nail, this gives good quality fingerprint scanning throughout the life of the scanner. Other scanners even with protective layers develop scratches over time and the quality of scanning degrade. Scanner is also free of any electrostatic problems.

  • Hamster is very powerful system with 800MHz processing power close to  computers. This allow Hamster to support fast 1:N matching where employees are not required to enter ID before matching fingers. Most other fingerprint system though claim to support 1:N matching (fingerprint only) but this is very slow hence they are always used in 1:1 matching (ID + fingerprint). Hamster can offer more then 100 fingerprint matches per second.

  • Fingerprint scanner has been practically tested with wet fingers, greasy fingers, smeared fingers, oily fingers and gives consistent performance for most practical situations.

  • Fingerprint scanner has finger guide which makes it easy for employees to give finger scan.

  • Hamster has a auto-scanning mode in which users  are not required even press ENTER key to to activate scanner. This along with other options can give you very fast transactions to avoid queuing up in morning and evening IN/OUT.

:: How it works


  • Hamster comes preconfigured and ready to use. Provide power supply to the system and start using.

  • It has no fingerprints registered in the database and show "Database Empty" message on pressing ENTER key and scanning finger.

  • First finger registered by pressing MENU key automatically becomes top administrator.

  • Once the admin is registered more users can only be registered after verifying admin fingers. Admin can also give admin rights to other users.

  • Plug your Ethernet LAN network cable into network port provided in Hamster.

  • You can change few settings and configure Hamster to work with your Ethernet LAN network. It is also possible to configure it to use central database residing on your server in case you have multiple Hamster machines. To do this you can connect standard keyboard and CRT monitor to Hamster and do configurations the way you do with a computer.

  • Before registering employees fingerprints, install Time-TRONIX TA Time Attendance (TA) software software on your office computer or server.

  • Enter company, department, shift, calendar and other details particular to your company.

  • Enter employee information to generate unique ID for each employee.

  • Register fingerprints of each employee with his unique ID on the Hamster using admin features with MENU key.


  • Employee enters the office and press enter key and place his finger on the scanner.

  • Hamster scans his finger and matches the scanned fingerprint with the database of registered fingers stored in its memory

  • Employee is identified and success sound is played along with SUCCESS [#ID] message on the LCD  and green LED blinks

  • Employee's IN time is recorded with date and time in the Hamster database itself

  • When employee leaves the office his OUT time is recorded in the same way
