Access_IS_GOAA prGreater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) have taken delivery of over a hundred of Access-IS’ much acclaimed OCR316e passport, credit and FQTV card swipe reading devices for use at check-in desks throughout the airport.

The new inventory arrives just ahead of an expected record breaking summer period (June-August) which is likely to see Orlando International Airport handle more than 10.5 million passengers.

The units have been supplied with mounting brackets, allowing the units to be attached to the side of the airports’ existing monitors using the standard 100mm VESA mounting points. This means that the OCR316e is ergonomically positioned for fast, intuitive swiping and does not take up valuable desk space.

All swipe readers need the document or card to pass the reading engine in a stable manner. Make the card slot too short and the read reliability will be affected; make it too long and you waste space. With decades of experience, Access-IS designed the OCR316e with the smallest possible footprint available whilst maintaining the ultimate in reading/swipe accuracy.

By investing in the OCR316e, GOAA has no need to replace its entire keyboard stock as the device is used alongside a simple keyboard rather than a sophisticated all-in-one device, the overall cost is also minimized.

Speaking about the purchase, John Vinelli, Manager of IT Projects for GOAA, said, “We are pleased with the Access reader; it’s small, easy to use and occupies no desk space at all.” He continued “As an added benefit our check-in staff can always be assured that the device will be in place and ready to use on whichever check-in counter.”
