"Suprema Launches BioEntry W2, a Multi RFID Reading, IP67-rated Vandal-Resistant Fingerprint Access Control Device"

Suprema, a world-wide leader in biometrics and security technology, announced the global launching of BioEntry W2, an outdoor fingerprint access control device that offers maximum matching performance, outdoor durability and multi-card reading in one package, providing comprehensive access control features.


BioEntry W2 blends plenty of industry-leading technologies and innovations. BioEntry W2 is loaded with a class-leading 1.2GHz quad core CPU which achieves incredible matching speeds of up to 150,000 matches/second. With its large 2GB memory, BioEntry W2 can store and manage up to 500,000 users and provides instant matching results with minimal lag time.


BioEntry W2 is also the most secure device in its class. The device combines an enhanced fingerprint algorithm, new fingerprint sensor, and live finger detection technology. The new Suprema fingerprint algorithm is more accurate than its predecessor and significantly reduces false rejection rates to improve security levels. It compensates for unsatisfactory fingerprint captures such as direct sunlight conditions or distorted finger images. BioEntry W2 also features Suprema’s patented live fingerprint detection technology, which effectively eliminates possible fraud using various fake fingerprint materials including clay, rubber, silicon, paper and film.

Unique to the industry, BioEntry W2 features dual-frequency, multi-card reading technology. Supporting all HID multiCLASS compatible RFID standards, the device features both LF(125Khz) and HF(13.56MHz) RFID and reads most types of RFID card standards with a single device including MIFARE, HID iCLASS, DESFire, FeliCa, HID Prox, EM and NFC.

“BioEntry W2 clearly reflects Suprema’s commitment to innovation and market focus. From the designing stage of BioEntry W2, we aimed to bring the most versatile biometric access control solution regardless of environment, RFID standards and size of the projects it covers,” said Young S. Moon, Vice President at Suprema. “Our target markets for BioEntry W2 are countries where there is a significant demand for biometric solutions with outdoor-ready structures and future-proof technology to cope with fast evolving authentication methods. The new BioEntry W2 provides IP67 rated dust & water protection and an IK08 rated vandal-resistant structure for outdoor installation. Its innovative multi-RFID reader covers almost every RFID standard in the market and will benefit users in the effective integration with legacy systems as well as providing users with the capability of adopting new authentication methods into their existing system including RFID, mobile and biometrics. With the new device, Suprema will remain a major biometric provider in the market while outpacing competition in the premium fingerprint access control segment,” Moon added.

“Suprema have once again illustrated their continuous growth in product development, providing clients with more options based on unrivaled performance.  The W2 is a great fit for African conditions.  It exceeds previous outdoor specifications and is built for our harsher environment while the multi-card functionality and extreme performance and capacity makes implementation decisions so much easier”, say Walter Rautenbach, Managing director of neaMetrics and distributor of Suprema in Africa.
