AKB500 keyboard with integrated MSR & OCR functionality

ATB integrated check-in keyboard


The AKB500 is Access' latest space-saving, multi-function keyboard with bi-directional inbound reading capability.

This device's new OCR reading engine is more than 50% faster than its predecessors. The read camera's placement at the centre of the read slot allows for bi-directional reading within the footprint of the device, saving valuable desk and counter space.

The keyboard can be adapted to add a new host or to support non-standard cards, such as loyalty or frequent flyer cards and specially dedicated formats.
