CR5400 Double-sided ID Card Reader

The Thales Gemalto CR5400 Double-Sided ID Card Reader simultaneously reads both sides of an ID card quickly. It is an easy way to improve accuracy, automate authentication, reduce human error, and maximise privacy. With the Thales Double-sided ID card Reader CR5400 there is no wrong way when inserting an ID card.

CR5400 checks IDs in double-time, reading both the front and back simultaneously. There’s no wrong way to insert the card into the reader – all you need to do is drop it in. Color-coded LED lights provide a real-time status response, and it automatically ejects the card once it has after reading.

Thales has designed the CR5400 with Banks & Financial Institutions, Border Management, Hospitals, Care Facilities & Pharmacies, Hotels & Casinos, Retail Stores, Schools, and Universities in mind.
