Reader Scanner with Autofeeder

The Seac Banche RDS 3000 is suitable for data capture and document imaging requirements based on checks and check-sized financial documents such as credit transfer slips, travellers cheques, utility bills and other vouchers.

The Seac Banche RDS 3000 is suitable for data capture and document imaging requirements based on checks and check-sized financial documents such as credit transfer slips, travellers cheques, utility bills and other vouchers.

Our continuous technology update allows better throughput – up to 65 documents per minute on the basic unit and near 100 on the new high-speed version RDS 3500 – and raises the performance of this successful product to even higher standards of excellence.

While the RDS 3000 and 3500 capture high-quality images in greyscale, the enhanced version RDS 6000 allows front and back scanning in full-colour in a single pass, providing equally accurate codeline reading.

The autofeeder can hold up to 80 standard documents, and more documents may be added to the feeder without interrupting the flow. To ensure that only one document enters the paper path at a time, the double feeding control (transparency check) works with two photosensors at different heights, located immediately after the feeder.
If mixed or ‘critical’ types of documents are processed, an Adaptive Ultrasound double feed sensor is also available as an option, allowing an even higher degree of effectiveness.

The unit’s MICR reading functionality decodes both CMC7 and E13B magnetic codelines. Reliability of the system is undisputed, based on the experience of thousands of Seac Banche codeline readers installed worldwide. The MICR head is spring-loaded, so that it can easily accommodate documents with different paper weight and thickness.
The proprietary onboard decoding system for OCR documents (optional) can read OCR-A, OCR-B and E13B codelines and mixed font OCR-B X E13B (UK Bank Giro), with outstanding accuracy and reliability. The OCR system can also be used for barcode reading.

The RDS line uses the most advanced technology available on the market for high-performance image capture. Images captured by the RDS are perfectly clear and sharply defined.
At standard speed (480 mm/sec), the RDS 3000 allows for up to three separate images of a document to be captured in a single pass. Images are scanned under program control and can be used to provide input to OCR/ICR character recognition systems, allowing for the acquisition of reliable and accurate data, as well as stored for archive and retrieval.
Resolution can be selected via application software, independently for front and rear images – 200 x 200, 100 x 100 dpi (or higher, up to 254 dpi, by reducing the transport speed), 256 shades of grey, green or red light source (the latter showing red dropout images).
An enhanced version – the RDS 6000 – captures front and rear images in full colour, without losing the ability to capture greyscale images, while the new high-speed model RDS 3500 will capture front and rear greyscale images in one pass, with either red or green light.
The images can be compressed by DLL functions in several formats, according to user needs.

The programmable inkjet endorser – height-adjustable at either 35 or 45 mm from the bottom edge – can print a variable string of data on the rear side of the document, up to full document width. The optional roll-on front stamp can be used to void documents: the pad can be personalised by the user, and it is automatically inked before each stamping action by an inking roller. Voiding and endorsing are controlled by the application.
The RDS can also be equipped with an optional manual magnetic stripe card reader which is housed in its own track at the front of the unit.

The RDS is equipped with two adjustable sorting pockets with a capacity of about 50 documents each, motorised to prevent paper jams and equipped with pocket-empty photosensors.
The sorting criteria are set by the application.
