ML 2


This device contains two independent readers: The OCR modul for machine readable documents (e.g. ID cards, passports) and a magnetic card reader for recording credit cards or access cards. The ergonomic design has been selected to achieve optimum adaptation to human work movement. Both internal readers operate bidirectionally,so that documents and cards can be fed through the reader in both directions.  This means that the input device is ergonomic and easy-to-use for both right and left-handed users.The Stand-Alone Module is a compact device with OCR-Reader and a 3-track Magnetic Stripe Reader. The position of the readers allows the user to swipe machine readable documents and magnetic cards in both directions.
The ergonomic design gives the operator an easy handle of the device.

Use of this device assures perfect read of all personal information stored in machine readable documents.
