Fast, accurate, reliable multi-illumination full-page OEM MRZ, RFID and 1D/2D barcode reader

OCR640 full page passport & ID document reader

The OCR640e OEM 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.


OCR640 integrated into a self-service kiosk

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 LED lights to keep the user informed of status from ready to scan, through to processing and successful scan; or to indicate that there is an issue with the document. The unit can also 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 OEM has a compact design and is built in 51° and 87° configurations. It is robust and rugged, has a 4mm toughened glass face, and its quality-assured manufacture ensures years of heavy-duty, frontline use.


Also available is a DESKTOP VERSION of the OCR640e.
