Document Reader KR9000

Document Reader KR9000 is a powerful high image quality document reader, and does not require any cover hence can be used to scan documents that don’t fit in simple scanners, or even tablets and handsets for scanning them, and anti-glare covering on the screen prevents any discoloration along with maintaining original colors.

1. It can be used to read and scan documents that include biometric information or Integrated Circuit Chips.

2. It is also available in a high resolution 10 MP camera model and supports upto 720 dots per inch of resolution.

3. It is able to auto detect when a document is placed, it works on USB power, has 2 USB ports and can even be used with external power supply.

4. It is compatible with multiple OS including Windows 7,8 and 10, Linux and MacOS, can be easily connected via USB port and is a pretty tough device.

Functions include:

  • Optional support for biometrically enabled travel documents containing contactless integrated circuit chips (eIDs and passports)
  • Optical document analysis in border management
    commercial markets
  • Accurate, true-colour images, with patent pending anti document laminate reflections and ambient light interference

Document Reader KR9000 Features:

  • Powered from USB or external power supply
  • Multiple document reading and imaging in 24-bit color matching
  • Patent pending anti-glare technology eliminates OVDs
  • 400 DPI high resolution imaging
  • Multiple wavelength illumination – Visible, IR, UV
  • Gemalto Confirm™ Security Laminate Imaging (optional)
  • OCR data capture
  • Complete access to OCR data and images captured
    via Software Development Kit (SDK)
  • Access to images as BMP, PNG or JPEG format
  •  Hoodless operation in most environments
  • Auto-triggering of document capture – presence of document is automatically detected
  • Windows® XP, Windows Vista®, Windows® 7 and Linux® compatible
  • USB 2.0 high speed compatible
  • Integrated USB 2.0 Hub – 2 ports for external peripherals
  • No moving parts and internally sealed optical chamber to prevent dust ingress
  • Tempered glass to improve durability
  • Carbon (optional) glass coating to help reduce scanning surface scratching

Comprehensive Software Features

  • Flexible software interface allows host application to select which illumination sources to use, image type, image compression, photo extraction, reflection or ambient light elimination, colour enhancement, which data groups to read, etc.
  • Simple high level API for quick program development or detailed low level API for fine control of all reader functions. SDK provides full configuration API
  • Contactless IC reading for ePassports (LDS 1.7) including Active and Passive authentication, Basic
    Access Control and Extended Access Control (PKI 1.11). The SDK provides writing capability using APDUs
  • Full SDK including DLLs, code examples, utilities and demonstration programs. Canbe used with Visual C++®, Java® and Microsoft® .NET Framework for Visual Basic®.NET and Visual C#®

Reading Capability

The Gemalto OEM Document Reader KR9000 reads the

  • ICAO compliant documents in near infrared (IR) per ICAO 9303 specification
  • ISO 14443 Type A and B contactless ICs at 13.56 MHz (optional)
  • 1D barcodes (2 of 5 interleaved, 2 of 5 industrial, Code 128, and Code 39)
  • 2D barcodes used on BCBP and other documents (PDF 417, QR Code®, DataMatrixand Aztec formats) from paper documents and some mobile devices


The reader illuminates documents in multiple
wavelengths and lighting orientations:

  • Near IR B900: 880nm, +/-5%
  • White visible: 430-700nm
  • Ultraviolet (UVA): 365nm
  • Gemalto ConfirmSecurity Laminate (optional)
    • 24 Bit Colour
    •  8 Bit Monochrome IR


  • Sensor: 3.1 Megapixels, CMOS, RGB 24 bit colour system
  • Standard 400 DPI image resolution

ePassport (RFID) Option

Contactless IC reading and writing capability according to:

  • ISO 14443 Type-A and Type-B using a PC/SC interface
  • ePassport support for ICAO 9303 LDS and PKI using included SDK
  • All standardized rates, up to 848 Kbps, read-out times depend on RFID tag, operating system and amount of data stored in the chip
  • PC/SC interface provides support to other card types such as Mifare.

Enhanced Document Authentication Option

Enhanced Document Authentication uses optical pattern
matching to:

  •  Identify documents based on the type and country of origin
  • Match security features captured from a document against a database of trusted security features – including UV, Gemalto Confirmlaminate and visible patterns
  • Check for presence of UV dull paper
  • Verify that areas are blank, devoid of patterns, text or printed matter
