The ACP-100 was specifically developed to support Point of Sale (POS), Gaming and other commercial data collection applications.The small footprint, lightweight, and portability of this OMR lends itself well for use on retail counters, gaming windows, workstations, etc.
Remark Classic OMR software when packaged with the ACP100 provides an application solution to support the processing of a wide variety forms, statistical reporting, and a powerful export feature supporting over 40 output formats to interface with standard software packages like Access, Excel, dBase, Foxpro, SSPS, and many more.
The Model ACP-100 Optical Mark Reader is the latest design developed by Chatsworth Data to support gaming, evaluation, and data collection applications. The ACP (Accessible Card Path) design was specifically developed for use in Gaming/POS applications, incorporating a unique feature which allows easy access to the card path and optic lens for clearing obstructions and performing preventative maintenance on the unit.
Significantly faster than keyboard entry, the ACP-100 reads one side of an input form automatically and without error as it scans and transports data. Once the form has been scanned, the resulting data string is terminated by a carriage return (CR) and is automatically transported to the communication port of the attached computer.
The operator and the speed of the computer control the processing speed of the forms. However, most 11-inch forms can be scanned at a rate of 1,500 to 1,800 forms per hour.
The ACP-100 utilizes "Visible Red" illumination reads black or blue marks made with a ballpoint pen or felt-tip pen as well as pencil, punched and pre-printed marks. Background printing must be in the visible red range. "Infra Red" illumination is available as an option for pencil only marking with colored background printing.
A number of downloadable commands are available to modify the default configuration of the ACP-100 to support a wide variety of form designs and application requirements.
The interface communication is either Asynchronous Serial RS-232C our USB.
The Model ACP-100 is supplied complete with an external Universal Power Supply (100-240V / 47-63Hz), Serial or USB Cable (Macintosh or PC), Operator Guide, Test Cards, and a Utility Software Disk.
The durable design, simplicity of use, and versatility of the ACP-100 makes it an ideal device for a wide variety of data gathering applications.
