The following will guide you through the physical install of your Sigma Fingerscan Reader. The guide assumes that you have already run both a network cable to the Sigma, and also plugged in the optional power supply pack (transformer). If you are running PoE (Power Over Ethernet) then the power supply is not required.

Your Sigma Finger Scan Reader should come with a thin plastic back plate, stylus and mounting screws (you will need a standard Phillips screw driver) ,and if purchased the optional metal mounting bracket.

(Stylus for use on the LCD)

(Sigma, Plastic back plate, optional metal mounting bracket)

(The plastic back plate hinges at the bottom for removal)

(Remove single security screw at the bottom of the Sigma.

This will require refitting later)

Using the screws provided, fix the metal mounting bracket to a suitable wall location. Considerations in regards to mounting locations should be:

  • Placed at an appropriate height to allow comfortable presentation of finger and ease of reading the display (a useful guide would be around 1400mm (1.4 meters) to the top of the bracket)

  • Location/accessibility of network cabling

  • Location/accessibility of power (if not using PoE)

  • Ease of access to Reader so as not to create a bottle neck (i.e. so ease of exiting reader area)

Using the screws provided, fix the plastic back plate to the metal mounting bracket.

Option 1 - Using PoE (Power over Ethernet)

This is the standard option and does not require the optional power pack (transformer) is not required. In order to use PoE you must have a PoE enabled network switch. 

Option 2 - Using the optional Power Pack

The option uses the optional power pack (transformer) when you do not have PoE.

Connecting the Network Cable (and Power)

Next plug in your Sigma to the network and power plug (unless running PoE), and fit the unit to the plastic back plate.


And finally, re-fit the single fastening screw on the underside-centre to lock the main unit to the plastic back plate.
