Combo Scan Kiosk ID scanner

Self-service ID verification in ultra-compact form, under 2 seconds


We have a newer version of this product. You may want to explore our latest passport reader & ID scanner: the OSMOND ➝

Smooth passenger flow and easy self-service operation – that’s what Combo Scan Kiosk is made for. This scanner extracts personal data from identity documents like passports, visas or ID cards within 2 seconds. As the name ‘kiosk’ suggests, integration with self-service kiosks, e-gates or vending machines is easy: due to the scanner’s low profile, ultra-compact rectangular form and mounting holes. All of these come with a clever design which includes no moving parts, to offer a truly maintenance-free operation.

This ID scanner allows intuitive usage, greatly improving passenger access or customer handling in those applications where checking identity documents is a must but there is no human staff attendance – especially in CUSS systems like airport e-gates, bank ATMs, self-service check-in kiosks and even vending machines where usage is restricted by age.

Highlighted features



Optical quality is maximized in the smallest possible volume, making it easy to integrate in any hardware.


Coverless design

The innovative Adaptive Light Control feature lets the scanner work flawlessly even with strong external light being present.


MRZ reading

The scanner’s wide surface allows the reading of MRZ even from the ID-3 size passports.


Single USB powering

Steady operation even in such environments where there is no external power – a single USB is enough.


Metal casing

A strong, durable and IP53-rated metal case protects the optical unit for long-term usage..


Document placement guide

Having the added document guide on top, users cannot do the scanning wrong.

Adaptive Light Control for high performance ID verification

Imaging is enhanced by our unique Adaptive Light Control feature, which secures steady operation even in environments with extreme light conditions. The software automatically detects and filters ambient light sources out to provide a flawless scanning performance. This is crucial both for accurate OCR and reliable authentication results.

self-service market statistics

About the self-service market

The self-service and automation market is one of the fastest growing sectors in the world: it’s expected to double in size in the next 5 years (prediction for 2024 using data and trendline from 2019).

Minimum volume for maximum integratibility

When designing this device, our developers have two main aspects in mind: to make the unit as compact as possible by reducing its size, while keeping our high standard for optical quality. In this tiny volume, Combo Scan Kiosk has a built-in optical unit with a mirror, infrared and visible illumination LEDs, controller and power unit, all in a full metal enclosure to provide extended durability.
