SECTION 1. OVERVIEW
The MINI MICR RS232 With Optional 3-Track MSR is both a MICR (Magnetic Ink Character
Recognition) Check Reader and an MSR (Magnetic Stripe Reader).
The MICR Reader, in a typical application, reads the magnetic data encoded on the bottom of
checks or magnetic stripe cards and transmits this data to a Host device. The Host device then
uses a specific authorization or verification process to validate a business transaction.
The use of the MICR Reader improves accuracy and speed because there is no manual data
entry; therefore there are no keying errors or unwanted delays.
The MICR Reader will communicate with the Host system using a standard RS-232 interface.
All data is transmitted as ASCII characters (See Appendix F). The MICR Reader has the
capability of supporting some hardware handshaking signals. (See Section 4, Commands.)
FEATURES

SECTION 3. OPERATION
This section contains check and card reading procedures and LED indicator states.
CHECK READING PROCEDURE
1.
Orient the check so the MICR line is down and the printed side faces the center on the MICR
Reader as shown in Figure 3-1.
Figure 3-1. Check Orientation
2.
Drop the check so the leading edge is in the open slot.
3.
When the MICR Reader detects the presence of the check, the motor will turn on. At this time
gently urge the check forward until the unit grabs the check. When this happens, release the
check. The check will then be transported around the check path and will exit through the other
side.
4.
After the check is read, the MICR Reader will transmit the data as specified by the parameters
described in Section 4, Commands.
CARD SWIPE PROCEDURE
The card may be swiped through the MSR in either direction, but the magnetic stripe must be oriented in
only one direction as shown in Figure 1-1. The MSR will transmit raw card data (“as is” on the card) for
all tracks that have been enabled using the HW (Hardware) command (Section 4, Commands).
The MSR is capable of reading ISO, AAMVA, and CDL encoded cards. The MSR will autodiscriminate
all the card formats when the ID Card Decoding option is enabled using the HW (Hardware) command
(Section 4, Commands).

SECTION 4. COMMANDS
This section describes the use of commands and programmable options available for the MICR
Reader.
Note
All options described below can be factory set as specified by the
user when ordering.
To execute the MICR Reader commands, either one of two methods is required: Insta-Change
checks or the MICRbase Setup Program for Windows.
INSTA-CHANGE CHECKS
The first method is the use of Insta-Change checks, which is a more practical way of
setting up the MICR Reader for most applications. The Insta-Change check is a MICR
encoded document that contains commands and options used to reset the parameters of
the MICR Reader. Multiple commands and options may be contained on one InstaChange check. When used, the Insta-Change checks are run through the MICR Reader
the same as a standard check, and the options to be used are automatically selected. To
obtain Insta-Change checks, notify a MagTek representative and specify what options
will be used. To operate Insta-Change checks, install the MICR Reader as described in
Section 2, and watch the LED indicator. When the Insta-Change check is run through the
MICR Reader and read successfully, the LED indicator will blink green. If the LED
indicator turns red, the read is not successful. Try again or use a different Insta-Change
check.
MICRBASE SETUP PROGRAM FOR WINDOWS
The MICRbase setup program (P/N 22000021) allows the user to control all the
programmable options available in the MICR Reader.
The program provides a graphical, user-friendly interface that hides the complexities
involved in
manually entering MICR commands. The user is no longer required to know the specific
commands or the detailed data associated with each command. However, the program still
allows manual entry of commands for advanced users. For more detailed information refer
to the MICRbase Setup Program Reference Manual (P/N 99875102).
The MICRbase setup program may also be downloaded from the internet at
www.magtek.com under Software/Demo Programs.
MAGTEK DEVICE DRIVERS FOR WINDOWS
For Windows applications, the MagTek Device Drivers for Windows (P/N 30037385) are
available to simplify the programming of the MICR Reader. The drivers are easy to install,
and they facilitate the execution of MICR Reader commands. For more detailed
information, refer to the MagTek Device Driver for Windows, Programming Reference
Manual (P/N 99875125).

MINI MICR RS232 with 3-Track MSR
The drivers may also be downloaded from the Internet at www.magtek.com
Software/Device Drivers.
COMMAND FORMAT
When the commands are entered manually, they must use the following format:
[COMMAND][DATA]<CR>
where:
•
•
•
•
•
[COMMAND] is 2 or 3 alpha characters.
[Data] is optional as described below for each command.
<CR> is always required.
All characters are ASCII
No spaces, brackets, or angle brackets required.
SWA - SWITCH A COMMAND
The SWA command controls the communication parameters, shown in Table 4-1. The
data for this command consists of 8 ASCII bits (“0” = hex 30 and “1” = hex 31).

Section 4. Commands
When sending data, all 8 bits must be provided. The MICR Reader will execute the
command but it will not reply. To make this command permanent, use the SA (Save)
command described at the end of this section.
If no data is sent, the MICR Reader responds with the current settings for SWA.
Note
The new settings for the serial port will not become
effective until the RS (Reset) command is executed.
The Reset command is described at the end of this
section.
SWA PARAMETERS
The SWA functions are listed in Table 4-1 and described below.
Baud Rate
The baud rate is one of seven speeds at which the MICR Reader communicates with the
Host. The lowest speed is 300 baud, and the highest is 19200.
Data and Parity
The number of data bits and the parity bit are interrelated. If even, odd, or mark parity is
selected, the MICR Reader will use seven data bits per byte with one parity bit. If a
parity of none is selected, the MICR Reader will use eight data bits per byte.
CTS/DSR
When CTS/DSR (Clear to Send/Data Set Ready) is set to IGNORE, the MICR Reader
sends data to the Host without waiting for the CTS and DSR signals to be active. When
CTS/DSR is set to USE, the MICR Reader waits for the CTS and DSR signals to be
active before sending data.
Number of Stop Bits
The number of stop bits is either 1 or 2. Normally, one stop bit is used for most
applications.
Two stop bits are used to allow extra time for slower Host equipment.
Intercharacter Delay
The intercharacter delay is used to increase the time between characters transmitted from
the MICR Reader. The time is increased to 13 milliseconds. This parameter affects
character rate but not baud rate (i.e., each character takes the same time to transmit but
the time between characters is increased).

SWB - SWITCH B COMMAND
The SWB command controls the message format, shown in Table 4-2. The data for this
command consists of 8 ASCII bits (“0” = hex 30 and “1” = hex 31).
To execute, send the SWB command as follows:
SWB 01010101<CR> (with data)
or
(without data)
SWB <CR>
When sending data, all 8 bits must be provided. The MICR Reader will execute the
command but it will not reply. The new settings become effective immediately. To make
this command permanent, use the command SA (Save) described at the end of this
section.
If no data is sent, the MICR Reader responds with the current settings for SWB.

0A
For example, if <STX> and <CR> are set to YES, the message from the MICR Reader
will look like this:
MICR Data: <STX>data<CR>
Control Characters and Card Data
The control characters are also available for card data but they are applied to each track
individually. For example, if the <STX> and <ETX> options are set to YES, the card
data message is transmitted as follows:
Card Data:
data]<ETX>
<STX>[TK1 data]<ETX><STX>[TK2 data]<ETX><STX>[TK3
Communication Modes
The selection of comm modes is a quick way of selecting multiple Control Characters.
For instance, to send a carriage return/line feed pair after the data, you can specify Comm
Mode 3.
Comm Mode 7, also known as Packet Mode, calculates an LRC (Longitudinal
Redundancy Check), and appends it to the data message. Also, if a <NAK> (hex 15)
character is received in this mode, the MICR Reader will resend the last message.
Send Data After Error
11
MINI MICR RS232 with 3-Track MSR
The request Send Data After Error specifies whether the MICR Reader will return data to
the Host after a read error. If YES is selected and the MICR Reader detects a read error,
the MICR Reader will still send the data back to the Host. If NO is selected and the
MICR Reader finds an error, it will discard the data and nothing will be sent. The error
conditions are listed in Table 4-4.
Send Status After Data
The Send Status After Data option makes the MICR Reader append a two-digit
error/status code to the end of the MICR data. For most formats (See Appendix A), the
error/status code will always be preceded by a forward slash (/). The error/status codes
are listed in Table 4-4.
For example, if a Canadian check (code 08) is read and had no errors, and the MICR data
is “1234567890”, then the message from the MICR Reader will look like this:
MICR Data:
1234567890/08
The status code is always at the end of the data, not the end of the message. For example,
using the above conditions, with the message format set to send <STX> and <ETX>, the
message from the MICR Reader will look like this:
MICR Data:
<STX>1234567890/08<ETX>

DESCRIPTION
No MICR data: no transit and no account found
Mexican check
Canadian check
Transit error: No transit, bad character, bad
length, bad check digit
Account error: No account, bad character
Check # error: Bad character in check number
No check number
Low MICR signal, good read
Business check
Amount field present
Good read
Notes:
The LED indicator will turn red on all error conditions.
The absence of a check number is not considered and error.
If a multiple error condition occurs, the error or status code with the highest priority is
reported.
All unreadable MICR characters are transmitted as an “?” ASCII character (hex 3F), except
for Format 00xx (See Appendix A).
Section 4. Commands
SWC - SWITCH C COMMAND
The SWC command controls miscellaneous functions, shown in Table 4-5. The data for
this command consists of 8 ASCII bits (“0” = hex 30 and “1” = hex 31).
To execute, send the SWC command as follows:
SWC 01010101<CR> (with data)
or
SWC <CR
(without data)
When sending data, all 8 bits must be provided. The MICR Reader will execute the
command but it will not reply. The new settings become effective immediately. To
make this command permanent, use the SA (Save) command described at the end of this
section.
If no data is sent, the MICR Reader responds with the current settings for SWC.

13
MINI MICR RS232 with 3-Track MSR
SWC PARAMETERS
The SWC functions are listed in Table 4-5 and described below.
CMC-7 Character Set
If NO is selected the MICR Reader will only read E13-B characters. When YES is
selected, the MICR Reader will read both CMC-7 and E13-B characters (see Appendix
B). However, the MICR Reader will only output raw data ("as is" on the check) for
checks with CMC-7 characters.
Invalid Command Response
Invalid command response is the action the MICR Reader takes upon receipt of a
command it does not recognize. It can also be used to stop the MICR Reader from
receiving any more commands.
The first option “?<CR>” is the default. If the MICR Reader receives an unrecognized
command, it will return a question mark and carriage return to the Host. The MICR
Reader will then return to an idle state and wait for further commands or check/credit
card reads.
For the second option, “no reply - header required,” the MICR Reader will only execute
commands preceded by a GS ASCII character (hex 1D). All other commands will be
ignored. Also, the MICR Reader will not reply to invalid commands.
For the third option, “no reply,” the MICR Reader will execute all valid commands, but it
will not reply to invalid commands.
The fourth option, “ignore all commands,” causes the MICR Reader to ignore any further
commands. Even the SA (Save) command is ignored and therefore this fourth option is
only temporary. To make this option permanent or to reset it, you must use an InstaChange check.
Active RTS
When this function is set to YES, the MICR Reader will raise RTS and wait 5 seconds
for CTS to become active before sending any data. If the 5 seconds expire and CTS is
not active, the data message will be discarded and nothing will be sent
14
Section 4. Commands
HW - HARDWARE COMMAND
This command controls miscellaneous hardware options, shown in Table 4-6. The data
for this command consists of 8 ASCII bits (“0” = hex 30 and “1” = hex 31).
To execute, send the HW command as follows:
(with data)
HW 01010101<CR>
or
HW <CR>
(without data)
When sending data, all 8 bits must be provided. The MICR Reader will execute the
command but it will not reply. The new settings become effective immediately. To make
this command permanent, use the SA (Save) command described at the end of this
section.
If no data is sent, the MICR Reader responds with the current settings for HW.

MINI MICR RS232 with 3-Track MSR
HW PARAMETERS
Disable/Enable Tracks
Each Track can be enabled or disabled individually. The tracks are always transmitted in
ascending order: TK1, TK2, TK3. For example, if TK1 and TK3 are enabled and TK2 is
disabled, the MSR will transmit TK1, TK3.
ID Card Decoding
The MSR has two modes of operation. In the first mode, ID Card decoding disabled, the
MSR will only read ISO encoded cards. In the second mode, ID Card decoding enabled,
the MSR will read and autodiscriminate ISO, AAMVA, and CDL encoded cards. When
a card is swiped, the LED indicator will turn red and indicate an error if any of the
enabled tracks read is incompatible with the selected mode of operation. TK2 is a
standard track for all types of cards.
EMF Detect
The EMF Detect option allows the MICR Reader, when idle, to monitor EMF
interference in its immediate environment. If YES is selected, the LED indicator will
blink red/green when the MICR Reader detects a signal with amplitude large enough to
affect check reading. If NO is selected, the MICR Reader will not monitor nor indicate
the presence of EMF interference.
FC - FORMAT CHANGE COMMAND
Formats are used by the MICR Reader to process and transmit the MICR fields. The
format command allows the selection of a format from the Format List, Appendix A.
The data for this command consists of 4 digits (ASCII characters 0-9). To execute, send
the command as follows:
FC 6600<CR>
(with data)
or
FC <CR>
(without data)
When sending data, all 4 digits must be provided. The MICR Reader will execute the
command but it will not reply. The new settings become effective immediately. To make
this command permanent, use the SA (Save) command described below.
If no data is provided, the MICR Reader will respond with the current format number.
16
Section 4. Commands
VR - VERSION COMMAND
The Version command gives the current software revision in the MICR Reader. To
execute, send the VR command followed by a carriage return as follows:
VR<CR>
The MICR Reader responds as follows:
MICR data:
[software revision]<CR>
SA - SAVE COMMAND
All changes are considered temporary until the Save command is executed. The Save
command saves all changes to the MICR Reader memory and makes them permanent.
The MICR Reader will execute the command but it will not reply. To execute, send the
SA command followed by a carriage return as follows:
SA<CR>
RS - RESET COMMAND
The Reset command resets the MICR firmware to the normal operating state of waiting
for a check or card to be read. The command also resets the serial port to the most recent
settings provided by the SWA command. To execute, send the RS command followed by
a carriage return as follows:
RS<CR>

APPENDIX A. FORMAT LIST
For check reading, the MICR Reader provides the flexibility to format the MICR fields and build a
specific output string that will be transmitted to the Host. These output strings are referred to as formats.
The Reader has a built-in list of formats (described below) from which the user may select one to become
the active format every time a check is read. The formats may be selected using the FC command (Section
4, Commands) or Insta-Change checks provided by MagTek.
Each format is assigned a 4-digit number. The first two digits indicate the format number, and the last two
digits are specific parameters used for various functions by each format. For example, in format “0415”,
the “04” refers to format number 4 and the 15 refers the maximum number of characters allowed for the
account field.
Note
The formats listed in this section apply only to U.S. and Canadian checks.
The MICR line on checks from other countries will not be broken or parsed
as described in these formats.
A complete description for each format follows.

APPENDIX B. CHECK READING
The characters printed on the bottom line of commercial and personal checks are special. They
are printed with magnetic ink to meet specific standards . These characters can be read by a
MICR Reader at higher speeds and with more accuracy than manual data entry. Two MICR
character sets are used world wide; they are: E13-B and CMC-7. The E13-B set is used in the
US, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Japan, India, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, and the
Far East. The CMC-7 set is used in France, Spain, other Mediterranean countries, and most
South American countries.
E13-B CHARACTER SET
The MICR font character set E13-B includes digits 0 through 9 and four symbols. The numbers
found on U.S. checks are of the E13-B character set. The numbers and symbols of E13-B are as
follows:
Transit symbol
Dash Symbol
On-Us Symbol
Amount Symbol
CMC-7 CHARACTER SET
The numbers and symbols of the CMC-7 character set are as follows:
SI
SII
SIII
SIV
SV

Appendix C. Troubleshooting Guide
05
VERIFY PARAMETERS
Use SET-MICR to verify the following parameters:
• "Send Data After Error" - if this option is set to NO, the MICR Reader will not send any data
after a read error. Use SET-MICR to change this option to YES.
• "Use CTS/DSR" - if this option is set to USE, the MICR Reader will not send any data
unless the CTS and DSR signals are enabled. Use SET-MICR to change this option to
IGNORE.
Determine if any of the conditions described above are true:
◊ If yes, rectify and continue to step 02.
◊ If no, continue to step 13.
06
READ ERROR
Possible causes for this problem are:
• Interference - the MICR Reader may be too close to a monitor, AC adapter or magnetic
device. Move the MICRF Reader away from the source of interference.
• Printing problem - the check being read may not meet the requirements of the ANSI
Standards. Use one the sample checks provided by MagTek .
• Feeding the check - do not hold on to the check as it goes around the path. Release the check
immediately after the MICR Reader "grabs" it. Also, make sure that the front end is not tilted
up while the check is being read.
• Foreign debris – power off the MICR Reader and try to push out any loose debris on the
check path. Grab the cleaning card and force it through the check path (this is a manual
process, the motor will not turn on). Try this procedure several times until the debris comes
out. Power on the MICR Reader again.
Determine if any of the conditions described above are true:
◊ If yes, rectify and continue to step 02.
◊ If no, continue to step 14.
43
MINI MICR RS232 with 3-Track MSR
07
MISSING CHARACTERS
Possible causes for this problem are:
• Character rate - the character rate at which the MICR Reader is transmitting data may be too
fast for the PC. Use SET-MICR to set the "Inter-character Delay" option to YES.
• Feeding the check - When feeding the check, make sure that the MICR line is at the bottom
and the printed side of the check is facing the MagTek logo on the MICR Reader.
Determine if any of the conditions described above are true:
◊ If yes, rectify and continue to step 02.
◊ If no, continue to step 08.
08
COMMUNICATION PARAMETERS DO NOT MATCH

Determine if the condition described above is true:
◊ If yes, rectify and continue to step 02.
◊ If no, continue to step 14.
09
INCORRECT FORMAT
Possible causes for this problem are:
• Incorrect Format Number - the current Check data format in the MICR Reader is not the
desired format. Use SET-MICR to verify/change the format.
• Incorrect Message Format - the current Message format in the MICR Reader is not the
desired format. Use SET-MICR to verify/change the Message format.
Determine if any of the conditions described above are true:
◊ If yes, rectify and continue to step 02.
◊ If no, continue to step 17.
44
Appendix C. Troubleshooting Guide
10
PATH IS OBSTRUCTED
Foreign debris is obstructing the check path:
• Loose debris - power off the MICR Reader and try to push out any loose debris on the check
path. Grab the cleaning card and force it through the check path (this is a manual process, the
motor will not turn on). Try this procedure several times until the debris comes out. Power
on the MICR Reader.
• Wedged debris - the debris is wedged in and cannot be removed with the procedure described
above.
Is the foreign debris removable?
◊ if yes, remove and continue to step 02.
◊ If no, continue to step 17.
11
MOTOR SENSOR IS BLOCKED
The Motor sensor may be blocked by dust build-up or foreign debris (see Figure C-1). Use
forced air to clean the sensor.
Power off the MICR Reader and then power on again, observe the LED indicator:
◊ If the LED indicator blinks red, continue to step 17.
◊ Any other LED indicator status, continue to step 00.
12
EMF NOISE/INTERFERENCE
When idle, if EMF detect is set to YES (see HW Command, Section 4), the MICR Reader
monitors the signal coming from the MICR head. If any signal (noise/interference) with
amplitude large enough to affect check reading is detected, the LED indicator blinks red/green.
Possible sources of EMF are monitors, AC adapters, or magnetic devices. Set EMF to NO, or
move the MICR Reader at least 6 inches away from the source of noise/interference.
Determine if the condition described above is true:
◊ If yes, rectify and continue to step 00.
◊ If no, continue to step 13.
45
MINI MICR RS232 with 3-Track MSR
