Throughout the past few years, FingerTec has been revising and upgrading its BioBridge algorithm. The BioBridge algorithm plays a big role when it comes to scanning, verifying, and storing the fingerprint information of enrolled users. It determines the capacity, speed as well as compatibility with other FingerTec terminals.
So what is the difference between the VX9.0 version and the VX10.0? First of all, the obvious difference is in the capacity of the storage. The VX9.0 can only hold about 3,000 fingerprints while terminals with the VX10.0 algorithm can hold 10,000 fingerprint templates - 4 times the capacity of the VX9.0! The VX10.0 also offers a more sensitive and accurate reading of a fingerprint during enrolling and verification, as well as a quicker scanning speed.

Currently, FingerTec is using the VX10.0 algorithm in most of its terminals. You will find this algorithm in all of the current colour-screen terminals, and also in FingerTec’s newly released H2i model.

It is essential to note however, that the VX10.0 algorithm can only be used with colour screen terminals, and that it maximizes the fingerprint templates capacity to 12,000 for models with the FEM 600 core board only. The fingerprint templates from algorithm BioBridge VX 10.0 cannot be mixed and matched with fingerprint templates from algorithm BioBridge VX9.0. So if you plan to use a terminal that has VX9.0 together with a terminal that has VX10.0, you will have to change the BioBridge algorithm of the VX10.0 to VX9.0. Click here to see how to do so.
