The document autofeeder can hold up to 100 standard documents and more documents may be added without interrupting the flow (on versions including unlimited feed capacity). To ensure that only one document enters the paper path at a time, a double feeding photosensor (transparency check) is positioned immediately after the feeder.


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 proprietary onboard decoding system for OCR documents can read OCR-A, OCR-B and E13B codelines and the UK Bank Giro mixed font (OCR-B X E13B) from the document image with outstanding accuracy and reliability. An enhanced package (Decoview) extends OCR and barcode decoding on multiple image snippets.

A dedicate optical read head (HDB) is available an option to tackle particularly dense barcodes in codeline position.


The Orion uses the most advanced technology available on the market for low-cost, high-performance image capture. The system allows for perfectly clear and sharply defined front and rear images of a document to be captured in a single pass and to be compressed/saved in up to two formats (renditions) each. Images can be used to provide input to OCR/ICR character recognition systems, as well as stored for archive and retrieval or transmitted to the bank as an alternative to the physical document where allowed by legislation and infrastructure.
Resolution can be selected via application software, independently for front and rear images, as well as green or red light source (the latter showing red dropout images), greyscale or colour scanning.


The optional self-inking front stamp can be used to void documents, while the programmable inkjet endorser can print a variable string of data on the rear side of the document. Voiding and endorsing are controlled by the application. Digital endorsement is also available as an option, adding up to 4 lines of text and/or graphics directly on the document’s rear image – which can then be secured by digital watermarking.


The Orion’s unique autofeeder allows documents with different paper weight and thickness to be processed without pre-sorting or mechanical adjustment. The image cameras can be opened apart when cleaning becomes necessary. In case of paper jam or foreign objects getting stuck in the scanner, the user can quickly swing open the paper path with a hinge mechanism, using no tools and with no risk of damaging the document.

Among the available options, particularly useful for teller auto-identification, you can also choose a manual magnetic stripe card reader and/or a dip-insertion chip card reader/writer, which are both conveniently housed between the feeder and the stacker.
All of this is achieved within the same footprint as the RD 1000 codeline reader!
