SOFTWARE ACCESSORIES
The following Software Modules may be required and will assist in the development of
application software. In addition, this software can provide an initial test platform for checkout
of the IntelliStripe 380.
• IntelliStripe Picture Demo with MCP Driver:
P/N 30037472 (CD) or P/N 99510015 (Web Release)
This software will install both a Demo program and the MCP driver.
The Demo program is useful for initial checkout of the Reader’s functionality. The
MCP driver is recommended for use as the communications interface on Windows
based host systems. Application programmers can interface to the MCP driver via a
MagTek defined API.
• Source Code for Picture Demo Program:
P/N 30037436
Visual Basic 6.0 source code for the Picture Demo program.
This will be useful to Application Programmers, as it shows examples of how to
interface with the MCP drivers and how to use the various commands.
COMPONENTS
The components are grouped in the following categories: The Motorized Card Transport,
Packaging/Enclosure, and Electronics and PCB, External Auto-ranging Power Pack, and
Firmware.
Motorized Card Transport
The Card Transport is based on an existing MagTek magstripe/encode module. This module
incorporates the following features:
2
Section 1. Features and Specifications
Lead-in Roller System
The primary purpose of the Lead-in Roller System is to grab the card from the user during card
insertion and to make sure the card is mechanically under motor control before reaching the
read/write head and its associated drive rollers.
As a secondary function, the Lead-in Drive Roller will also assist in allowing for a more reliable
exit positioning of the card during an eject sequence. The Lead-in Roller allows for the
possibility of pulling the card back into the reader if required.
Front Opto-Sensor
The Front Opto-Sensor is located near the entrance of the card path. The primary function of this
sensor is to provide information that a card has been inserted into the Reader and to inform the
microcontroller to initiate motor and card-handling activities.
As a secondary function, this sensor also provides feedback regarding card location during a card
eject and/or jam-clear sequence.
Encode Opto-Sensor
This sensor is located approximately 0.300” before the crown of the magnetic read/write head.
The primary purpose of this sensor is to provide the microcontroller with the position of the
leading edge of the card just before encoding. This information, in conjunction with the Rotary
Pulse Generator (RPG), allows for a higher degree of positional accuracy just before initiation of
the magnetic encode process.
As a secondary function, this sensor also provides feedback regarding card location during a
card-eject and/or jam-clear sequence.
Card-Landed Mechanical Switch Sensor
This switch is integrated as part of the ISO-8 smartcard contact block, and the sensor provides an
indication when the leading edge of a card has reached physical travel limit for rearward travel
and has successfully engaged with the smartcard contacts which allows for a successful
smartcard interface session.
Spring-Loaded Card Registration Guide(s)
The spring-loaded guide ensures that the reference edge of the card is mechanically referenced to
the magnetic read/write head, so that the magnetically encoded track data is physically located
on the magstripe in accordance with the specifications of ISO 7811.
3
IntelliStripe 380 USB/RS-232
Ability To Transport 0.010 ”to 0.035” Cards
Cards that meet the ISO 7810 card thickness of 0.027” to 0.033 will work properly with both
magnetic and smartcard elements of this system. However, card thickness of 0.010” to 0.035”
should not be expected to work properly in regard to magnetic and smartcard operations. These
cards only need be successfully transported without jamming in the Reader.
Card Entry/Orientation
Enter an ISO 7810-, 7811-, or 7816-compatible card into the Reader with the front surface of the
card up (side with the embossed characters and smartcard IC) and visible to the user during
insertion. The magstripe side of the card will face down and not be visible to the user during
insertion. The magstripe will be towards the right side of the Reader (as viewed from the front).
Magstripe Read/Encode
The Transport reads and encodes a magnetic stripe card that meets the requirements of the ISO
7810 and 7811 specifications. In addition, the device provides support for a variety of user
selectable data densities and data formats that fall within the boundaries of ISO 7810 and 7811.
Number of tracks: The magnetic encode section provides the ability to encode or read
three tracks of magnetic data as specified in ISO 7810 and 7811 in a single physical pass
of the card over the read/write head.
Note
This does not imply that both read and encode functions occur
simultaneously. It means that either a 3-track read OR a 3-track encode
sequence occurs during a single pass of the card over the magnetic head.
Direction of Magnetic Encode: To meet the requirements of ISO 7810 and 7811, the
magstripe card is encoded in a unidirectional movement, which starts at the defined
leading edge and continues toward the trailing edge of the card; this means that the card
is encoded as the card is moved from the front entrance of the Reader towards the rear of
the Reader.
Direction of Magnetic Read: The ISO 7810 and 7811 specifications allow for
bidirectional magnetic reading of the card. As such, the Reader provides services that
allow the card to be read in either direction.
Read Formats: In addition to reading cards that meet the ISO 7810 and 7811
specifications, the Reader reads AAMVA drivers license cards. Also, all 3 tracks of the
Reader reads any card that follows ISO 5-bit or 7-bit data formats and is within any bit
density in the range of 75 to 210 bpi.
4
Section 1. Features and Specifications
Encoded Formats: In addition to encoding cards that comply with ISO 7811 encoding
formats, it is possible to customize encoding formats as follows:
•
•
•
Encoded bit density is selectable at 75 or 210 bpi on all three tracks.
The character is selectable for either 5-bit or 7-bit format on all three
tracks.
The Start-Sentinel character is user selectable as either a (;) or a (=)
for 5-bit code or a (%) or (=) for 7-bit code.
SmartCard
The transport provides smartcard contacts that are compatible with ISO 7816 and EMV level 1
Standards. In addition, the smartcard contact block has a card landed switch that detects when an
ISO 7810 thickness card is properly pressed against the smartcard contact block.
Packing/Enclosure
The enclosure provides for proper functionality for user interface, cable routing, mechanical
mounting, jam clearance, optional SAM (Security Access Module) installation and Optional
TRSM (Tamper Resistant Security Module), and general maintenance.
Small Footprint
The unit has the smallest footprint required by the limited counter-top and desktop space
available at financial institutions.
Cable Management
The following provisions are made for communication and power lines:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Polarization and locking of cable connectors
Strain relief of cables
Wire routing functionality
RJ series connectors for main and auxiliary RS-232 interfaces.
Power is brought to the unit through the main RS-232 cable
Power-pack is away from the unit and will attach to the main RS-232 cable
Jam Clearance – Ejector Rod
For easy removal of a jammed card, an ejector rod is accessible at the rear of the unit. To clear a
jam, the ejector rod is removed from the rear of the unit and inserted into an access hole on the
back panel of the reader to push a card out of the front slot of the unit.
5
IntelliStripe 380 USB/RS-232
Tamper Resistant Security Module (TRSM), Optional
The unit provides mechanical and electromechanical features that allow the enclosure to be used
within a TRSM environment per ISO 9564. Mechanical features visually indicate intrusion into
the enclosure, and electromechanical switches on the Main PCB signal that the mechanical
enclosure had been opened. This allows the electronics to erase the keys in its memory area
whether the unit is powered or not. Contact MagTek for further information regarding optional
TRSM.
Electronics and PCBs
The core electronic functions of the unit reside on a single PCB referred to as the Main PCB.
Main PCB Components

device connected to this port.
6
Section 1. Features and Specifications
Power Input
The Reader/Encoder is powered by a 12 VDC power-pack. The +12 VDC power is carried to
the Reader/Encoder as part of the Host Serial cable.
All other voltages required by the Main PCB are generated onboard as required.
The input connector and cabling carry power to support the Reader/Encoder.
Polarization and Securement of Serial Port Cables
The ports, located at the rear of the Reader/Encoder, use RJ connectors with locking tabs, which
assist in securing the cable to the Reader/Encoder.
Opto-Sensor Inputs
The Main PCB provides inputs for the three opto-sensors (Front, Encode, and Rear).
Rotary Pulse Generator
The Main PCB provides input for the MagTek 75/210 bpi Rotary Pulse Generator (RPG).
Dual Color LED
The Main PCB provides facilities for a dual color, red/green PCB. The LED is located on the
front bezel of the Encoder/Reader. When the unit is powered up, the LED will blink green or red
until the Host commands it to a different state. Green means the unit is ready for normal
operation. Red means a card is jammed in the unit and should be manually removed.
ISO-8 Smartcard Connector with Landing Switch
The Main PCB provides resources to support an interface with an ISO-8 smartcard connector
with its associated landing switch. The electronics meet EMV Level 1 requirements.
3-Track Read/Encode Magnetic Head

in the forward and reverse directions in the transport. The motor can also be driven with a small
“holding” current to keep a card positioned over the Smart Card contact block during a Smart
Card session.
7
IntelliStripe 380 USB/RS-232
Microcontroller LED Indicator
The Main PCB supports a “watchdog” LED, which blinks on and off providing visual indication
that the microcontroller is in a normal state of operation. The LED can be viewed when the
bottom access hatch is removed from the enclosure.
External Auto-Ranging Power Pack
The Reader/Encoder is powered from an external power-pack, which is located near the Host
Computer System. Power is routed to the Reader/Encoder through the Host RS-232 cable.

one of three ways: 1) foot pads, 2) set of mounting holes for 3 screws (4 x 40), and 3) 4 lock-inplace slots.
Footpad Mounting
The footpads are mounted at the factory if it is the default. Simply place the unit on a level
surface with approximately 4 inches clearance from obstructions at the front of the unit for card
clearance. Leave enough room at the rear of the unit for cable clearance.
Mounting Hole Screws
Locate the 3 screw holes (4 x 40 screws) shown in Figure 2-1. The length of the screws depends
on the thickness of the mounting surface. Drill 3 holes in the mounting surface that match the set
of screw holes. The screws are mounted from under the mounting surface and into the bottom of
the IntelliStripe 380.
Lock-in-place-slots
Figure 2-2 shows the dimensions of the Lock-in-place slots, to be used with optional Baseplate
Mounting, P/N 16054403. (See Appendix A, Figure A-4.) The holes next to the lock-in-placeslots are for inserts. The holes are placed over mounted inserts and the unit is pulled the length
of the slots forcing the thickness of the bottom plate to lock the unit in place. Dimensions of the
slots and inserts are shown in Appendix A.
Flange
The flange shown in the illustration may be used to screw the unit to the mounting surface using
a #4 screw. It can be used with any mounting configuration.
MagTek Mounting Plate
MagTek offers an optional mounting plate. The plate dimensions are shown in Appendix A,
Figure A-4.

SECTION 3. OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
The operation of the unit includes inserting and removing the card. Maintenance includes
keeping the unit clean and removing jammed cards from the unit.
OPERATION
The card is inserted with the magnetic stripe down and to the right as illustrated in Figure 3-1.
Perform any tasks on the PC as directed. The LED gives status or direction as defined by the
institution.
Figure 3-1. Card Orientation
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
Preventive maintenance includes cleaning the unit periodically with a lint-free cloth. The
cleaning schedule depends on how clean or dirty the environment is.
CORRECTIVE MAINTENANCE
Ejector Rod for Card Jams
Corrective maintenance includes removing the card in case of power failure or card jam. In most
cases, resetting the unit will cause the card to automatically eject the card. To reset the unit
unplug the Power Supply connector (Figure 2-4) from the I/O connector and plug it back in.
If the card does not automatically eject, the card may be pushed out with a special tool, the
Ejector Rod, which is located in the Rear Panel of the unit, as shown in Figure 2-3.
Shut power off by unplugging the power supply (Figure 2-4), and remove the card with the Rod
as follows:

The mounting dimensions of the 3 screw holes and the 4 lock-in-place slots are shown in Figure
A-1.
Footpad Mounting
The footpads are mounted at the factory if it is the default. Simply place the unit on a level
surface with approximately 4 inches clearance from obstructions at the front of the unit for card
clearance. Leave enough room at the rear of the unit for cable clearance.
Mounting Hole Screws
Locate the 3 screw holes (4 x 40 screws) shown in Figure 2-1. The length of the screws depends
on the thickness of the mounting surface. Drill 3 holes in the mounting surface that match the set
of screw holes. The screws are mounted from under the mounting surface and into the bottom of
the IntelliStripe 380.
Lock-in-place-slots
The overall dimensions of the unit are shown in Figure A-2.
The MagTek Mounting Plate, Figures A-3 and A-4, show the use of the Lock-in-place slots
(Refer also to Figures 2-2). In the example the holes are placed over mounted inserts and the
unit is pulled the length of the slots forcing the thickest part of the plate to lock the unit in place.
The value and tolerances of the plate at the end of the slots are .087” ±.005” (Figure A1), and the
value and tolerances of the “stem” of the mushroom-shaped inserts are .085” ±.005” as shown in
Figure A-4.
