Gemalto AT10K OEM Document Reader


The Gemalto OEM Document Reader AT10K is designed with a low profile and simple shape to make it ideal for integration with self-service kiosks, counters and eGates at airports and other locations such as railway and cruise terminals. The OEM model inspects and images travel documents, including electronic travel documents and 1D and 2D barcodes used by the airline industry on boarding pas​ses and cell phones.

The design of the OEM AT10K is based on new research using inexperienced passengers found in a self-service environment. Along with detailed and exhaustive analysis of field experience and numerous deployed projects Gemalto has designed a new “landing light” LED feedback arrangement which naturally encourages the correct placement and use of the reader increasing the first time read rate even when used by infrequent or hesitant travelers.

The virtually flat top with new user instruction decals and no hood makes the reading area clearly visible when presenting a paper or cell phone boarding pass or passport. ​
