Automate your ID document authentication with DESKO´s all-in-one standalone solution the PENTA Scanner® Block. This document scanner is equipped with an embedded PC on which an authentication software or your own application can be installed. This way you can perform reliable checks of ID documents such as passports, ID cards, visas or drivers´ licenses. Multicolor LEDs give feedback on the status and check result which allows you to operate the PENTA Scanner® Block without an additional monitor or screen. This all-in-one solution allows a reliable, fast and secure document authentication of
ID documents and drivers´ licenses.
The user is guided by a highly visible LED stripe which provides immediate visual feedback on the status and check result. An additional LED indicates if the back side of a 2-page document needs to be scanned. Aside from that, an extra-large scan window ensures an intuitive handling and fast scan results.
The embedded PC and integrated (W)LAN connectivity provide a high level of flexibility and enable the PENTA Scanner® Block for an autonomous, standalone operation. With its compact size and small footprint, the device requires only little space. Therefore, it is your perfect all-in-one solution for automated ID checks.
