Description
Magnetic Stripe Technology
Magnetic stripe card readers offer the flexibility, fieldproven reliability and fast programmability of highcoercivity magnetic stripe technology. Existing
magnetic stripe cards can potentially be used.
Integrated magnetic stripe readers include the
intelligent reader electronics, membrane keypad and
LEDs in a single housing (a 32-character LCD display
is available as an option). Two-stage swipe readers
that require a Remote Reader Electronics (RRE) are
also available.
Features
•
Attractive and durable housings for
interior/exterior applications
•
Utilizes ANSI standard track 2 high-coercivity
magnetic stripe technology (other tracks are
available)
•
Magnetic stripe card options include photo flaps,
slots and custom printing
Document No. 149-389P25
Magnetic stripe technology uses electromagnetic
charges to encode information on a stripe of magnetic
tape (similar to audio tape), that is laminated to a
plastic card. In the card reader, a magnetic head
makes surface contact with this stripe and reads the
charges. This information is sent to a processor that
translates it into an alphanumeric sequence for
identification purposes.
The magnetic material making up the stripe comes in
various coercivities. Coercivity (also known as
energy) is defined as the magnetism needed to erase
the information encoded on the magnetic stripe and is
expressed in units called oersted. Two coercivities
are widely used in the access control industry:
•
Low-Coer
oercivity/Ener
nergy (300300-400 Oersted)
The first generation of bank, credit and access
cards utilized this technology. Ordinary magnets,
placed in close proximity, are capable of erasing
or garbling the encoded information.

•
Highgh-Coer
oercivity/Ener
nergy (30003000-4000 Oersted)
Currently used for access cards because ordinary
magnets will not erase or garble the encoded
information, even if the magnet is placed in
contact with the stripe.
