Introduction to Swipe Readers...

A magnetic stripe card is a type of card capable of storing data by modifying the magnetism of tiny iron-based magnetic particles on a band of magnetic material on the card. The magnetic stripe is read by physically swiping it past a magnetic head inside the reader.

Barcode slot readers are similar devices but using optical recognition of a printed barcode that has been illuminated by an LED.

Devices offered here include magnetic stripe and barcode readers complete with interface electronics on an easy to install chassis which is available with or without a cover. Models designed for two reading lengths (9 & 15cms) are available.
