Access IS OCR601-Mk2 Series

High-Performance Flatbed MRTD Reader with Contact/contactless Capability

The OCR601-MK2 is a machine readable zone (MRZ) data reader with RFID functionality to simultaneously decode the contents of an ePassport or contactless smart card.

The OCR601-MK2 automatically detects when a document with machine readable data has been inserted and its advanced recognition engine provides highly accurate and instant data capture and decoding.

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.

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

For users wanting to read contact cards, the OCR601-MK2-SC adds two contact smart card readers, two secure access modules (SAMs) and an integrated USB hub featuring two powered USB ports delivering even greater flexibility
