Focussed on mobile enterprise technology designed for use from front-line staff and senior management alike, Gen2wave sought out Access-IS as the experts in OCR/MRZ reading technology to develop the functionality for their flagship product. 

 The industrial RP1600 with optional EID10 reader is the first octa-core rugged Android Smartphone offering the complete package for industrial users. Equipped with a 13MP camera, rated to IP64 and protected against drops of up to 1.5 metres, this unit is the risk free choice for the super user. The compact 4.3” display is available as a capacitive or resistive touch screen for outdoor users working under severe conditions. It boasts extensive data capture options including 1D Laser, 2D Imager, NFC, optional RFID, contact smart card reader, finger print recognition, OCR/MRZ reader, and a snap on MSR as well as a full range of accessories.

OCR310e: The world's smallest reading engine


The OCR310e OCR/MRZ reader used in the RP1600, has been specifically designed for OEM manufacturers and is easily integrated into mobile and portable devices. Its technology is well proven and in daily use with tens of thousands of installations worldwide. It reads data from the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) of identity documents including passports, driver's licences & ID cards, and transfers that information instantaneously to electronic systems.

Applications include handheld identity & travel document verification, queue-busting & roaming passenger / customer services, and mobile checking of identity by police forces.

Talking about the integration of the OCR310e, Chanho Lee, CEO at Gen2wave said, “We wanted an extremely fast and reliable reader for our device but it also had to be small. The OCR310e met the bill in every way and also delivered very low-power consumption, making it an ideal choice for use in battery operated devices such as the RP1600”.
