Fingerprint Reader Tanabutr from HIKVISION model DS-K1201


DS-K1201 Series Fingerprint and card reader , designed with a 32 bit high-speed processor , contains the optical fingerprint recognition module . It communicates with access controller via the RS-485 protocol. And a built built-in tamper tamper-proof module helps to protect the card reader from malicious damage. The protective level is IP65, which is suited for outdoor installation.


DS-K1201EF   EM Card No. Reading
DS-K1201MF   Mifare No. Reading
Recommended Fingerprint Recorder Model to Use Cooperatively : DS-K1F820-F


  • A group of messy code encrypted data for the security of fingerprint storage
