Full-Page ID Scanner, Document Imager and Electronic Machine Readable Travel Document (eMRTD) Reader
HID ADR300 ATOM Passport Scanner and Document Reader from acquisition of Access-IS
Key Applications & Features

The HID ATOM (formerly Access-IS ADR300) is a state-of-the-art, multi-illumination, electronic machine-readable travel document (eMRTD) reader and passport scanner. Designed from the outset to deliver high performance, ATOM blends an aesthetically pleasing design with flexibility to make it the ideal choice for almost any ID verification application.

Its innovative design enables the capture of multiple high-resolution, uncompressed images in visible and infrared light (UV - optional). In comparison to alternative readers, the transaction time on this travel document imager and reader is significantly reduced, delivering productivity and cost savings.

ATOM’s design sets it apart from other identity document 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 traveled documents quickly slide onto the glass, easing down bent corners for a perfect read.

The ATOM scanner delivers lightning-fast MRZ decoding, with optional capability of reading RFID data from eDocuments, including those meeting the latest ICAO LDS standards. Additionally, high performance 1D/2D barcode reading ensures that the ATOM delivers a rich feature set.

ATOM can also be supplied with an innovative expansion dock to provide either contact smart card reading, magnetic stripe reading or both. The elegant drop-in design means that the unit can be supplied already connected or retrofitted in the field in just a few seconds.
