Loma strengthens detector security with fingerprint scanners

01 February 2016

Fingerprint technology has been introduced for checkweighers and metal detectors, to ensure only authorised personnel change key settings. 

Loma this week launched their Finger Print Access Device, which pairs with the company’s CW3 Combination Metal Detector and Checkweigher units. 

The company said in a statement: “Although available as an optional extra with newly commissioned CW3 Combos, Loma’s Finger Print Access Device and accompanying software can also be retrofitted to customers’ existing models.”

The device can store up to 200 fingerprints, and is divided into administrator and user settings.
