Simultaneous Captures and Processes

By integrating the contactless RFID reader/writer the device simultaneously and efficiently captures and processes data fields, including the holder’s image, from the chip. This combined functionality provides a robust and cost-effective alternative to full-page, multi-illumination ID scanners such as the ATOM® Document Reader.

Easy Integration

The compact, robust design enables easy integration into self-service kiosks and gates, or use as a desktop device. Its rugged manufacturing ensures years of indoor and outdoor, frontline, public use.
