OCR315e - Oblique

Flexibility To Suit Any Application

The OCR315e is a compact and robust OCR reader. It can simply be attached to a variety of handheld and ultra mobile PCs, tablets, standard desktop keyboards and monitors, or act as standalone units as part of a data capture process, such as Know Your Customer, Know Your Employee, age verification and airport check-in.

Reliable Reading

The OCR315e track length and single slot design are optimised to ensure that passports and ID cards are correctly aligned for consistent and accurate reading. The track length ensures that documents slide along the metal plate smoothly without rocking, ensuring a good read first time, every time.
