Thales Cogent CS500f – Slap Scanner

The Thales Cogent CS500f is the brand new compact   Ten-print live scanner offering a superior fast acquisition speed and USB 3.0 technology. It supports collection of all 10 fingerprints in 4-4-2 format (right four fingers, left four fingers, and two thumbs) while producing high quality fingerprint images with exceptional capture speed.
Designed with a small footprint, it can be used in a desktop setting or integrated into other systems like kiosks: It is provided with a useful handle to improve the scanner handling in case of mobile installations


  • e-ID Documents, e-Passports and Visa
  • Border Control
  • Criminal Background Check
  • Civil Identification

The CS500f has a couple of very useful features:

  • A strain relief cable: engineered in order to avoid the breakup of the USB cable connected to the scanner
  • Fixing holes: designed to fix the scanner to fixed structures such border control officer station, enrollment kiosks and so on
  • Kensington Lock: to secure the scanner in case of offices/desktop installations

CS500f can be updated with a SW Fake-Finger-Detection (GB_FFD)

The GB_FFD solution is “software based” and does not require any physical upgrade or HW modification of the current models or installed base.

- Easy to use and very fast processing

- Fully Integrated in our MultiScan_SDK

- Intuitive user interface

-GB_FFD algorithms are capable to “learn” during use, thus improving efficiency over time
