Magnetic Swipe Readers (MSRs) and Writers

Mag swipe reader and writer

Access manufacture a range of stand-alone magnetic swipe readers (MSR) and writers suitable for many applications. The full range of readers is designed to read cards incorporating a magnetic swipe, including credit, loyalty, gift and log-on cards. In addition, the MSR32x series mag swipe readers can be deployed in airport duty-free shops to read boarding passes and tickets.

Optional mounting brackets are available to enable the readers to be mounted at almost any angle and integrated into the smallest teller position or desk.

 

Magnetic stripe card writers are available on request. Due to the potential for fraudulent use, we are required to carefully screen potential users before passing information.

 

Readers are intuitive to operate, with a simple hand-swipe operation. A host connection can be made via industry standard RS232 or USB interfaces. Access also supply keyboards with integrated MSRs and other devices: for more information see the custom keyboard page.
