Visual and auditory user feedback

One decisive advantage of our boarding gate reader is its remarkable ease of use. This is due in part to the large scanning area, rapid barcode capture and multicolor display. Thanks to its wide viewing angle, this facilitates communication between control staff and passengers. The full graphics display guides the scanning process and shows the status, results and individual graphics in an easily visible format.

But the LCD display is not the only form of feedback:

  • Lateral multicolor LEDs for clear Go feedback (green) or a No-Go signal (red)
  • Buzzer with adjustable volume for auditory feedback
