Card Scanning Solutions' state of the art scanners are incredibly fast. Cards are scanned automatically just by feeding them into the scanner. Scanning time is under three seconds, which means that batch jobs can be processed at a rate of over 1000 cards per hour. Our scanners have a small footprint. They are powered by the USB bus, thus they do not require external power supply.
