RDM EC6000i Gen2 Series Electronic Check Reader & Imager

RDM EC6000I Check Reader & Imager


The EC6000i® Gen2 Series is RDM’s latest addition to its imaging products. With its small footprint, connectivity to the most popular POS terminals, and industry leading MICR and image technology, the EC6000i Gen2 Series is, once again, setting the standard for small document imaging for check electronification, check cashing and walk-in bill payments processing.

The EC6000i Gen2 Series scanners feature a standard USB port, in addition to a wide variety of optional features such as Franking Acknowledgment printer, internal alphanumeric OCR A and B character recognition, OCR E13B MICR Assist, 3-track bi-directional Magnetic Stripe Reader (MSR), and 10BaseT Ethernet connectivity, positioning it as one of the most versatile and reliable products in the marketplace. Utilizing RDM’s Progressive MICR Method, the Gen2 series of imagers deliver the industry's highest MICR read accuracy which results in lower administrative returns due to MICR misreads and rejects.

In addition to RDM's industry leading "single pass" Progressive MICR Method, the optional OCR E13B MICR Assist feature can be enabled to provide maximum recognition, performance and accuracy to virtually 100% read rate.

The EC6000i Gen2 Series also captures crisp, clear binary images exceeding the industry's requirements for legible images.

As an optional feature, the Franking Acknowledgment printer prints a fixed text message on the front face of the check facilitating the requirement for check defacement in one simple process, increasing efficiency, which is vital in the point-of-purchase (POP) environment.

Under application control, the bi-directional document drive in the EC6000i Gen2 Series can be paused to hold documents pending an authorization decision. For approved transactions, checks are returned to the user "face down" through the exit slot. Transactions that are denied cause the check to be returned to the user "face up" from the entry slot.
