Sometimes when we refer to a group of devices, Suprema agents may say a 1st generation device, 2nd generation device, or Entry level device.
If you are not familiar with them, they mean the following.
1st generation device:
BioLite Solo, BioLiteNet, BioEntry W, BioEntry Plus, BioStation, BioStation T2, FaceStation, D-Station, Xpass, Xpass S2
1st generation entry level (blackfin) device:
BioLite Solo, BioLiteNet, BioEntry W, BioEntry Plus, Xpass, Xpass S2
* these devices do not have an OS
2nd generation device:
BioEntry W2, BioStation L2, BioStation A2, BioStation 2, FaceStation 2, BioEntry P2, BioEntry R2, Xpass D2, CoreStation, BioLite N2, FaceLite, XPass 2
2nd generation devices are also sometimes referred to as BioStar 2 devices. They were designed for BioStar 2 and introduced after BioStar 2 was released.
They only can use limited features in BioStar 1.92 or above version because these devices were not originally designed for BioStar 1.
