What Do You Know About Magnetic Stripe Card Reader?

  • 2022-11-11

What Is A Magnetic Stripe Card Reader?

A magnetic stripe card reader, also called a magstripe reader, is a hardware device that reads the information encoded in the magnetic stripe located on the back of a plastic badge.The information could be a code or some personal information that helps in the identification of an individual.

The magnetic card reader is a microcontroller-based device and has been programmed for a specific application. That program simply reads the card in a forward direction in a simple data format or it can be complex enough to read the card in any direction with a corresponding encoding format.


How Does A Magnetic Stripe Card Reader Work?

The magnetic card reader uses a specific component to read data from a magnetic card, which is referred to as the read head. The reader also contains an oscillator section that provides the clocks for the recovery section and for the enable/disable timers. The enable/disable counters provide initialization for the recovery section. The recovery section locks onto the data rate and recovers the individual data bits from the data stream.

When a magnetic stripe card is moved over this surface, it induces a voltage in the coils of the device. The voltage is then amplified to be recorded electronically and be read by a processor installed inside a reader to access information.



How To Choose The Right Magnetic Stripe Card Reader?

The magnetic stripe card reader should be reliable and accurate in reading magnetic card without a chance for error. For instance, a magnetic ID card reader should be able to extract the correct personal information for driving license verification. Besides, it should be also durable so that it can withstand numerous card insertions or swipes without wearing out. A strong reader will not break easily and has a longer warranty claim.
