PR501 Portable Full Page Passport Reader

PR501 portable reader

The main goal during its development process was to create a stand-alone, mobile and fully functional full page image capturing and processing device, thus making the use of additional desktop PC or laptops unnecessary.

The PR 501 has all the advantages of the CLR desktop readers: true-colour images taken with either normal, IR and UV light; high resolution; fast image-taking and processing.

The PR 501 uses the new version of the ARH's reliable OCR (Optical Character Recognition). The image-taking and reading process takes less than 3 seconds.

Thanks to the superior features of the PR 501, even the smallest patterns and security marks of the document are clearly visible. With it a high degree of forgery identification is possible, for every kind of personal document, such as Passports, Visas, ID's, Driving licenses, or even banknotes.

With a built-in industrial computer and touch screen, there is no need for any additional hardware elements. Although it's a stand-alone device, the usual computer peripheries, such as mouse, keyboard, communication and USB devices are available. This device guarantees reliable performance and continuous workflow. The built in batteries offers up to 3 hours autonomy if no external power is available.

Passport Reader PR 501 is delivered with an easy-to-use API supporting C/C++, Visual Basic, Delphi and Java environments on Windows platforms. Using this functions library, custom-tailored end-user applications can easily be developed thus meeting special user requirements.

Its structure, the optical characteristics, the built-in industrial computer and the comprehensive functions library make the PR 501 a considerable solution for any application where mobility, high quality, fast and reliable document verification, robust and compact construction are a must. As the "flight security" is more and more an important topic, AR Hungary considers this device an ideal solution for airlines, security agencies or immigration offices.

It can be used at:
· CHECK-IN POINTS at airports
· Border crossing points
· Police work
· Mobile patrol unit operation
· Mobile and temporary access points
· On-board applications on trains, cruisers, sea-liners
· Harbours and airports
