The OCR315’s bi-directional reader can read 2-line or 3-line MRZs from passports, ID cards, machine-readable visas and ICAO9303 travel documents. The device is ideal for managing AQQ, APIS and other e-border data. Its proven design provides fast and accurate document reading and an integral bright torch allows the unit to be used in low light conditions. A built-in ultraviolet lamp illuminates to verify fluorescent features in security documents. An optional magnetic stripe reader reads credit and debit cards, loyalty cards and frequent flyer cards. An LED lamp and configurable audible ‘beep’ are used to confirm a successful read operation.
