NEPTUN chrom®

Innovative keyboard for credit card and ID document reading

Prior to opening a bank account, a great deal of customer data has to be collected. Entering these details manually can be time-consuming and faulty. The brand-new NEPTUN chrom® keyboard automates the whole data capture process. Just pull the document through the bidirectional swipe slot - the integrated OCR and MSR modules capture data from passports, ID cards as well as credit and debit cards with only one swipe. With the NEPTUN chrom, you can rely on correctly read data, and therefore dedicate yourself to the needs of your customers.

In the hectic working routine it may happen that a glass of water is accidentally spilled over the keyboard - for the NEPTUN chrom no problem. The whole keyboard is water and dust resistant according to IP54 standards and therefore your reliable partner, 24 hours each day.
