What is OMR?

Optical Mark Recognition, also called Mark Reading (“mark sensing”). Through the technology of OMR a simply and reasonable method of entering data by document into a computer system is enable. Optical Mark Reading (OMR) is one of the fastest and safest method for data-entry into a host until today. 

How does it work?

A pen or pencil mark is made in pre-defined positions at the document to indicate each selected response (for example: answers to a survey question or an absent pupil in a school register).
The complete forms are scanned by the Optical Mark Reader which detects the presence of a mark by measuring reflected light levels. The reader interprets this pattern marks and spaces into a data record and transmits it to your computer for storage, analysis and reporting.

What are the main advantages of OMR-Technology?

  • simplicity: “Tick box answers” are marked with a by pen or pencil
  • functionality: the OMR-Reader scans the form, detect the presence of marks and passes information to the computer
  • speed: OMR-Readers can read up to 9,000 forms DIN A4 per hour
  • flexibility: OMR-readers tests for plausibilities and transmit the processed information to the computer with up to 38,400 Baud.
  • The interpretation based on a simple “Yes/No” answer.

When to use OMR-readers?

  • on applications where other entering possibilities are not present
  • if a large volume of data has to be collected and processed within a short period of time
  • if the persons who have to collect the data are not regular computer users
  • if information mainly comprises the selection of categories or “Tick box answers” to multiple choice questions

Where do the OMR-readers work?

  • examinations at schools, colleges and universities
  • public opinion polls of research institutes
  • assessment tests
  • counting of votes
  • staff opinion surveys

What is possible?

  • Barcode
  • OCR
  • Double document recognition
  • Print on the form
  • Sorting with two pockets

What kind of equipment do I need?

  •   a computer with serial interface
  •   the appropriate software for your application made by Binary Logic
  •   specially designed forms

 

  
Optical Mark Reader on duty...

  
OMR 50E Manual Reader

The OMR 50E mark reader is an optical mark reader designed for manual feed. It reads marks, crosses, bars, dots and various other types of markings. It processes automatically printed documents (e. g. laser printouts) as well as blind color forms and qualitatively high-grade (dimensionally accurate) copies.

The read head can be folded back without the use of tools in order to carry out cleaning or maintenance operations. The compact structure of the device allows it to be positioned at a slant as an ergonomic desktop model.

Technical details: OMR 50E

  
OMR 200S Automatic Reader

The OMR 200S is an optical mark document reader with stack feed. It was designed as a high-capacity desk reader with the greatest possible operating ease for efficient data input.

The configuration of the device permits the implementation of optionally up to two OMR read heads (scanning strips), two bar code read heads, an ink jet printer (HP ink jet printer) and a sorter with two sorting trays.

The reader operates with a CPU of the latest generation that guarantees high reliability and speed for the data input directly from the document into the computer.

OMR 300S Automatic Reader

The OMR 300S is an optical mark document reader with stack feed and two sorting stacker trays. It was designed as a high-capacity desk reader with the greatest possible operating ease for efficient data input.
As options, the device can be equipped with

  • a second OMR read head for the simultaneous reading of the front and back sides of a document,
  • a two-line bar code read head adjustable across the entire width of the document,
  • an ink jet printer (HP ink jet printer),
  • a multiple line display for user guidance.

The reader operates with a CPU of the latest generation that guarantees high reliability and speed for the data input directly from the document into the computer.
