The ATB422 and ATB423 keyboard families integrate OCR and MSR functionality and are designed for airline passenger check-in and boarding gate document and card reading.
Approved for SITA CUTE Airport Connect®, ARINC iMUSE®,Ultra CUSE®and RESA CREWS®, the keyboards can be adapted to add a new host or to support non-standard cards such as loyalty or frequent flyer and special dedicated formats. To ensure flexibility for the future, new firmware to add and modify features can be down-loaded to the unit.
The keyboards are fitted with an integrated 4 track magnetic swipe reader and dual illumination OCR reader. An MSR reader performs bidirectional reading of ticket and boarding pass coupons and ISO encoded credit card data. The document exit is inboard of the keyboard so that the unit can be operated where space is limited and within a footprint 20% smaller than competing products. The ergonomically designed document channel is fitted with a smooth wearresistant stainless steel guide and achieves reliable reading at fast and slow swipe speeds
