PR304: one-step mobile e-passport reader

PR304 Portable Document Reader with RFID

The PR304 mobile e-passport reader enables hands-free operation on the spot: the user simply inserts the passport, ID card or other travel document into the reading slot, the rest is done automatically by the reader.

One-step reading is not only an advantage because of easier operation but it also speeds up the reading process and ensures secure document processing.
