Regula 72X3 is designed in plastic body as a compact size device for desktop use. The reader is connected to a PC with the help of a USB-3.0 cable.

The document reader allows single pass duplex scanning and capturing images of documents in white, infrared, ultraviolet, transmitted white and transmitted infrared lights. The device is equipped with an RFID and smart cards readers, optionally — with a magnetic stripe reader. Regula 72X3 is supplied with a software development kit (SDK) for easy integration into existing end-user systems.

  1. An ID-card falls down inside the reader.
  2. Document images are captured in different illumination modes. At the same time data is read from RFID tags.
  3. Regula Document Reader SDK processes data.
  4. Results of the verification are ready for further use.
  5. When the reading process is finished, the card automatically comes out of the reader so that it can be removed from the device.
