OCR310e - Oblique

Compact for OEM Flexibility

The OCR310e is an optical character recognition (OCR) swipe reader module. Combining ultra-compact size and low-power consumption, the OCR310e is designed to be integrated into third-party, hand-held devices for applications such as portable identification verification devices.

Accurate and Fast

An OCR decoder is integrated within the device using an advanced recognition engine to provide highly accurate and very fast document reading.


OCR310e Reading Engine - Detail view


Reads All ID Documents

The OCR reading engine captures code lines from machine readable passports (MRP), visas (MRV), US and international resident permits as well as European and other national ID cards conforming to ICAO 9303 & ISO/IEC 7501-1 (2 and 3-line MRZ). It will also read the new ISO/IEC 18013-1 driving licences (1-line MRZ), so is future-proofed.

Flexible Performance

In addition, APACS debit and credit documents (APACS standards 3.1 and 3.2, respectively) can be read together with E13B, OCRB and mixed E13B and OCRB fonts.

Developer’s Kit

A developer’s kit is available to assist in the integration of the OCR310e into OEM equipment.  

The kit comprises one OCR310e device, two development boards (one USB and one RS-232), all cables, utilities and documentation. 



Integration into portable devices requiring low-power OCR reading such as:

  • Police identification checking
  • Queue-busting at airport check-in
  • Security checks at airport boarding gates
