Access IS - LSR116 2D barcode reader for integration into kiosks, podiums, mobile ticket readers and access gates

The LSR116 is designed to read 2D barcodes including QR, AZTEC and Datamatrix from smartphones, tablets and paper.

  • Fast, accurate and reliable reads for smartphones and tablets
  • Rugged, dust-proof and water-resistant
  • Compact, sealed, slot-in design
  • Reads all popular linear and 2D barcodes
  • Equally high-performance reading paper

The LSR116's unique design, with optimised focal distance and a 2D omnidirectional barcode imager, ensures read reliability for smartphones, tablets and paper. Its high-speed performance captures and decodes linear and 2D barcodes instantly on presentation in any orientation.

It has a small-footprint, slot-in design to enable fast and easy integration into third-party, public access kiosks and gates. Furthermore, its rugged, water-resistant construction, with no moving parts, enable it to withstand years of indoor and outdoor public frontline use.

The LSR116 may be configured with data format settings. Serial RS232 and serial or keyboard USB interface versions are available. When operated in interactive mode, the LSR116 can be controlled by the host application to give green light LED 'successful read' feedback to the user.

  • Audio beep operator feedback
  • High-quality compact design
  • Robust and durable for frontline use

OCR640 datasheet

The OCR640 desktop is a full-page multi-illumination ePassport reader. It captures ultraviolet and infrared images, as well the full page of a passport in colour. In a simultaneous single action the reader also decodes the machine readable zone (MRZ) and processes eData, including the holder's image, from the chip.

The OCR640 automatically detects when a document with machine readable data has been presented. Additionally, it is able to compensate for out-of-position MRZ data, so that the advanced recognition engine reliably provides highly accurate and very fast document reading capability, allowing large volumes of documents and smart cards to be processed quickly and efficiently.

The unit features blue, amber, green and red LED lights to keep the user informed of statuses from ready to scan through to processing and successful scan, or that there is an issue with the document. A programmable audio beep provides additional user feedback to confirm successful scans.

The OCR640 has a compact body design and a variety of hood designs. Furthermore, its robust, rugged, quality-assured UK manufacture enables it to withstand years of heavy duty frontline use.
