F18 is an innovative biometric fingerprint reader for access control application. With high-performance firmware functions and compact design, it has become one of ZKTeco’s most popular devices. It is applied with ZKTeco’s latest firmware with user-friendly UI and flexible user privilege settings for multi-level management. The new hardware platform uses ZMM210 core-board with 1.2Ghz CPU. With optimization of both hardware platform and firmware, the new f18 is able to verify fingerprints with even higher efficiency. The device offers flexibility of both standalone installation and installation with any third-party access control panels which support standard Wiegand signal. TCP/IP and RS485 are also available which enable F18 to be applied in different network.
