PENTA Scanner for reading travel documents
PENTA Scanner is a device for fast and efficient reading of travel documents – it scans, captures and processes data and images from the following documents: identity cards, driving licenses, passports, visas, biometric passports, credit cards, vaccination certificates.
This product will provide you with unparalleled image quality, both in normal and UV or IR light. The scanner quickly recognizes characters. In addition, the operation is very simple and thus does not require a specially trained operator. Once the document is inserted, the device automatically creates images and performs the analysis.
PENTA Scanner provides data for processing from these documents:
Health Insurance cards
Certificate of vaccination

The PENTA Scanner can be equipped with the following modules
Different light sources
By default, the device is equipped to work with visible and infrared light. An optional UV light source allows reliable and complete ID verification by revealing “hidden” document security features.
As a standard feature, the device works with OCR for optical character recognition and reliably reads all data from the Machine Readable and Visual Zone (MRZ).
1D and 2D barcodes can be read either from paper or from digital displays, for example on smartphones.
In order to read RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips on biometric passes, an RFID module can be integrated.
For contactless data collection, the terminal can be equipped with an NFC (Near Field Communication) module. This also makes you ideally prepared for future requirements.
Magnetic strip reader
Bi-directional swipe reader on the front of the magnetic stripe card reader.
Chip card reader
A module for reading smart cards can also be integrated.
