The OCR316e 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 the data capture process, such as Know Your Customer, age verification and airport check-in. The interface connection is via USB. The track length and single slot design are optimised to ensure that passports and ID cards are correctly aligned for consistent and accurate reading.

The OCR decoder has an advanced recognition engine that provides highly accurate and very fast document reading.

The bidirectional reader can read machine-readable passports (MRP), visas (MRV), US and international residence 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.

It also integrates a three-track MSR and is able to read credit and debit cards, loyalty cards and frequent flyer cards.
