New development: Scanner for the counting of votes in the USA
During the course of the past ten years, Election Systems & Software (ES&S) has provided support for more than 30,000 elections from specially developed organizational concepts, to required technical equipment and up to all of the services that surround an electon process. Its devices and software solutions can be employed for elections at all levels – from elections of a president and European elections and for local government elections, but even e.g. for elections of shop committee members.
With the new election scanner it is possible to scan up to 300 ballots (600 pages) per minute and evaluate them by means of an integrated high-performance PC. Even folded voting documents can be processed without problems. Invalid documents as well as documents with handwritten supplements are sorted out directly into three automatic output trays.
The DS850 is characterized by its easy operation, robust and sturdy construction, maximum safety standards and high throughput. Beyond that, the scanner is capable of processing different paper sizes and qualities.
Following a protracted certification procedure conducted by the US authorities, the DS850 high-speed election scanner received approval to be used for elections in the USA. Already the first practical trials of the DS850 proved to be fully successful and exceeded all expectations.
Aldo Tesi, President and CEO of ES&S: "In DATAWIN we have found a strategic partner with many years of experience, from whom our mutual development project as well as our customers will profit to the highest degree."
