ATOM Document Reader– Full-page Document Imager & eMRTD Reader

The ATOM Document Reader from Access-IS is a state-of-the-art multi-illumination eMRTD reader. Representing a major leap forward in aesthetic design with dramatically improved performance, this device sets the ID document reader standard for years to come!

Its innovative design enables the capture of multiple high-resolution, uncompressed images (Visible, IR & UV). In comparison to existing scanners, the transaction time is significantly reduced delivering greater productivity and cost savings.

ATOM’s stand-out design sets it apart from other readers and allows for both desktop use and simple, elegant integration into countertops and kiosks. Its innovative ‘shark fin’ document guides ensure that even the most widely travelled documents quickly slide onto the glass, with bent corners eased down for a perfect read every time.

Like its predecessors, ATOM still delivers lightning fast MRZ decoding, whilst simultaneously reading RFID data from eDocuments, including those meeting the latest ICAO LDS standards. Additionally the high performance 1D/2D barcode reading ensures that ATOM delivers the rich feature-set that Access-IS document readers are famous for.

ATOM can be supplied with its innovative Expansion Dock providing either Contact Smart Card reading, Magnetic Stripe reading or both. The elegant ‘drop-in’ design means that the unit can be supplied already mated or can be retrofitted in the field in just a few seconds.
