About The AT10K

AT10K Thales Passport Reader

Thales AT10K Passport & Document Reader is designed especially for high security setups who require ID authentication of both driver’s licenses and passports. It is Thales’ top-shelf product and is suitable for use by the most demanding, and security conscious environments.

Thales AT10K is designed especially for most demanding and sensitive locations such as border management, banking, hospitality, and travel where fast and efficient working solutions are sought with accuracy and reliability.

LED Landing Lights For Easy Use

The Thales document reader has a flexible and direction-independent design with LED “landing light” feedback that guides the user to properly place the passport or ID. This makes the ID scanner suitable for infrequent users to help work efficiently with reduced queue times.

Hoodless Operation

The design is advanced with a removable cover for hoodless operation, and document spine hold down clip. The AT10K also provides anti-glare technology to reduce document reflections and ambient light interference with accurate and true colored images.

Optional Support for e-Docs & mDLs

It also supports biometrically enabled travel documents and driving licenses containing contactless integrated circuit chips (eIDs, eDLs, mDLs and ePassports) with the hood removed.

Can the Thales AT10K scan passports?

Yes. The flatbed surface allows for passports to be placed on the scanner and authenticated. It is also capable of scanning drivers licenses, state ID cards, passport cards, and smaller identity documents.


Does the Thales AT10K work offline?

The Thales AT10K does not require internet access to scan IDs. However, the particular software you are using may require online connectivity. Both VeriScan ID Scanning & Visitor Management software, and ParseLink Data Automation software work offline. 

If you are using software other than VeriScan or ParseLink, you will need to consult your software vendor to determine offline functionality.


What kind of computer do I need to use the Thales AT10K?

Any computer capable of running Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10.

If you are looking to perform ID authentication with the Thales AT10K, you will need a computer powerful enough to run authentication software. Check our quick search guide to see if your computer is capable of performing ID authentication


Does the Thales AT10K work with Mac OS?

No. The Thales AT10K is only compatible with Windows OS.


Do I need software for the Thales AT10K to work?

Yes. We are providers of VeriScan and ParseLink solutions which are compatible with the Thales AT10K. The scanner is also compatible with other software, not provided by IDScan.net. Contact your software provider to confirm compatibility and functionality.


How does the Thales AT10K authenticate IDs?

The Thales AT10K is a forensic document reader, which uses three light (white light, ultraviolet, infrared) to analyze documents. It also has multiple cameras to perform simultaneous six image capture, allowing for comparison to ID templates at the pixel level. 

In order to authenticate IDs, you will need to pair the Thales AT10K with software such as VeriScan ID Authentication.


How is the Thales AT10K powered?

The Thales AT10K is powered via a cord that plugs into a standard electrical outlet.


What is the difference between the AT10K and the AT9K?

The updated design of the AT10K is smaller and more streamlined. The lightweight design is ideal for mounting, or use in a kiosk. However, the functionality is quite similar.


How do I clean the surface on the Thales AT10K?

We recommend cleaning the glass with either a microfiber cloth or another non-abrasive material.


Will the Thales AT10K read RFID?

Yes. The Thales AT10K is capable of reading RFID.
