Our scanners are specially designed for handling thick cards which are often difficult for other card scanners. The BizCardReader 901 features an oversized high-traction input roller for smooth feeding of thick laminated medical and insurance cards, plastic embossed cards, and driver licenses. Vertical Mount Scanner The scanner can be used horizontally or vertically. When mounted vertically, the scanner has 2 distinct advantages. ? Reduced Wrist Strain Ergonomically, the vertical card insertion method is superior to horizontal card insertion because it reduces wrist strain. When scanning for extended periods, the vertical mount method is preferred. ? Small Footprint The small footprint of the vertical mount scanner saves a significant amount of desk space. The compact footprint is at least 40% smaller than horizontal scanners, and fits easily into a small open space.
