The OCR640e 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 RFID data – including the holder’s image – from the chip. The OCR640e 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 LEDs to inform the user of status: ready to scan, processing, successful scan; or to indicate an issue with the document. The unit can be programmed to provide audible feedback to confirm a successful read, signal premature removal of a document and flag a variety of data details. The OCR640e has a compact, robust design and is designed for years of heavy-duty, frontline use.
