Magnetic stripe reader MSR206

The UIC MSR206U magnetic stripe reader and writer conforms to ISO 7811 1 to 6 formats. It reads and writes up to 3 tracks of data (i.e. decoding/ encoding and verifying data) simultaneously and achieves this in one swipe for single, dual or triple tracks. It writes high or high & low coercivity magnetic stripes (300-4000 Oe).

It comes with full featured WIN98/2000/XP utility demo program and supports programmable data format. The MSR206U is ideal for card verification and various card related applications. It is highly reliable specified for minimum one million read and write head swipes. It fully conforms to FCC and CE standards.
