OCR640 ePassport Reader

ocr640

OCR640 full-page multi-illumination desktop readers for ePassports and eID Cards

The OCR640 desktop is a full-page multi-illumination ePassport reader. It captures ultraviolet and infrared images, as well the full page of a passport in colour. In a simultaneous single action the reader also decodes the machine readable zone (MRZ) and processes eData, including the holder's image, from the chip.

The OCR640 automatically detects when a document with machine readable data has been presented. Additionally, it is able to compensate for out-of-position MRZ data, so that the advanced recognition engine reliably provides highly accurate and very fast document reading capability, allowing large volumes of documents and smart cards to be processed quickly and efficiently.

The unit features blue, amber, green and red LED lights to keep the user informed of statuses from ready to scan through to processing and successful scan, or that there is an issue with the document. A programmable audio beep provides additional user feedback to confirm successful scans.

The OCR640 has a compact body design and a variety of hood designs. Furthermore, its robust, rugged, quality-assured UK manufacture enables it to withstand years of heavy duty frontline use.
