The OCR601 is a half-page machine-readable zone (MRZ) data reader with RFID functionality to simultaneously decode the contents of an ePassport or contactless smart card. The OCR601 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 such as the ATOM® Identity Document Reader.
The compact, robust design of this half-page MRZ reader enables easy integration into self-service kiosks and gates or for use as a desktop device. Its rugged manufacturing ensures years of indoor and outdoor, frontline and public use.
