Company Profile

  • Boarding Gate Readers (BGR's)

    Access has designed a range of compact boarding gate readers for 2D barcoded boarding passes (BCBP’s), including both standalone units and OEM units for integration into self-boarding gates.

    BGR750 – Flatbed boarding gate solution with optional contactless & MRZ passport reading

    The BGR750 is a modern, flatbed boarding gate reader for all 1D & 2D barcoded boarding passes (BCBPs), designed specifically for intuitive use with all media types, including the latest smartphones, tablets and smart watches.

    Barcode tickets are presented face-down over the scanning window. The large window, wide viewing angle and deep depth-of-field creates a large reading area that results in fast detection and barcode read even before the document touches down.

    The BGR750 has been designed with a very low profile, making it the ideal solution for desktop or embedded use. Installation flexibility is further extended by the choice of angled or flat screen – or no screen at all (OEM Only) – to suit the application.

    Designed for future-proof operation, the BGR750 can be equipped for contactless operation. Additionally, the devices’ large scanning window is designed to allow for optional passport MRZ reading – available on a software licence.

It can optionally include an intuitive and fast 1D/2D barcode reader that can read from paper, phones, tablets and smart watches.

    Barcode tickets are presented, face-down, over the scanning window. The large window with wide viewing angle and deep depth-of-field creates a large barcode reading zone that results in fast detection and reading even before the document touches down.
