To answer massively growing market demand for a simple and user friendly yet professional grade identity card reader, Elyctis is proud to introduce the ID BOX – ID1 series, an e-ID document reader for all ID verification situations where professional accurate reading and convenience are essential.
PERTUIS, FRANCE, October 23, 2023 – Elyctis announces the ID BOX – ID1 series, the latest addition to the highly praised ID BOX – ID3 series of professional e-ID document readers. The Elyctis ID BOX – ID1 series has been developed to fit the booming demand for affordable professional e-ID document readers that can be deployed in large volume for all applications where one needs to authenticate an e-ID document and identify the document holder. The Elyctis ID BOX – ID1 reads the MRZ of the document thanks to a high-end dedicated scanner and accesses the chip thanks to a dedicated RFID reader.
The Elyctis ID BOX – ID1 reader is the only one that fits the bill as, in spite of its small footprint, it is able to read both ID1 (ID card or driving license) and ID3 (ePassport) documents.
The Elyctis ID BOX – ID1 reads the e-ID document MRZ and accesses the RFID chip without movement. Building upon the longstanding experience of Elyctis, it ensures an accurate scanning of the MRZ, allowing access to the chip, complying with ICAO and Digital Identity standards. The Elyctis ID BOX – ID1 is the smallest professional e-ID document reader in the world, saving precious space on the desk of telecom and bank branches as well as hotels, car rental counters, airlines, travel agents, border control posts, etc. The new Elyctis ID BOX – ID1 allows software development by systems integrators using the same free-of-charge professional software development kit (SDK) as the existing Elyctis ID BOX range.
Unlike other solutions, the Elyctis ID BOX – ID1 is small and affordable, and being designed as a professional tool, it brings reliability, speed and cost-effectiveness to e-ID document control.
