Our Android devices support USB OTG which allows them to act as a USB host with a suitable cable e.g. for the TC55 use an OTG cable such as the one shown here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/female-Micro-Adapter-Cable-Function/dp/B009DFCCKO/ref=pd_lpo_147_bs_lp_t_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID…
With this adaptor cable , I think you can use an external USB fingerprint reader such as the one shown here :
This reader has an Android driver/app which should be compatible with the TC55 but this would need to be tested in order to ensure compatibility.
Is MC36 capable to support OTG Fingerprint scanner
Yes - MC36 does also support USB OTG so in theory it should work with this scanner.
Sir Out put current written in Manual is 300 mAmp is it sufficient to run External rugged IP54 rated Finger print Scanner
Specs for this particular scanner are as follows (from Futronic Technology Company Limited ):
- active <600mW(during scanning)
- standby <200mW(when scanner is connected PC but no scanning)
- sleep mode <11mW(activated by standard USB bus event only)
600mW at 5V would be around 120mA so it should work but it would need to be thoroughly tested in conjunction with the target device before proposing this solution to a customer.
