BGR 504 pro – Boarding Gate Reader for Standalone or Integration


Contactless boarding process: DESKO BGR 504 pro scans any barcode on paper or display from a distance

Our DESKO BGR 504 pro is the state-of-the-art boarding gate reader, perfect for integration into counter, kiosk or gates. It can also be used as standalone solution at the boarding gate. The scanner is extremely efficient and easy to use thanks to its large scanning area and built-in barcode engine for 1D and 2D BCBP reading. Its multicolor display and two large LEDs on each side give an immediate and highly visible feedback, whether the scanned ticket is valid or not, to the passenger as well as the agent.

The BGR 504 pro is based on a robust flatbed scan technology for highest and super-fast barcode read rates. Because of its barrier free flatbed design the device allows for user-friendly mobile boarding pass reading from smart phones or large tablet displays –even from a distance, which supportscontactlessboardingprocesses on Post-COVID 19-Airports.
