It captures machine readable codelines in single hand “swipe” operation and transmits recognised data to a host computer. Its variant model VPR 470e uses built-in RFID reader to retrieve e-data from e-Passport and other e-documents. Via low engery Bluetooth link with external host including computers, smartphones and tablets running different OS, it can be controled and perform user-defined processing. VPR470/470e use built-in Li-Ion battery. No direct cable connection is required between the host and the reader during operation. Small size and reduced weight of the reader makes it perfect choice for integration with the latest handheld devices.
