MT-215 Reader

Dual Read Head. Rugged Design. Flexible Interface.

OEM Insertion Readers are available in a variety of interfaces and head arrangements. They can be mounted either for horizontal or vertical card insertion. The debris-clearing chassis minimizes down time caused by insertion of foreign objects. The dual head models can read a card with the magnetic stripe orientated in either of two directions—thus minimizing the need to reinsert the card. A card-present sensor at the rear of the slot notifies the application that a card has been inserted so that the cardholder can be prompted with further instructions.

Features

  • Easy mounting to panel of host
  • Open bottom for debris fall out
  • Multiple interfaces
  • USB Powered
  • Dual head option

P-Series Insert Reader

Sealed Bezel and Chassis. Dual Read Head. Flexible Interface

The P-Series Readers are designed for installations that might be subjected to harsh environments such as fuel (Petroleum) pumps and outdoor kiosks. The water-tight design of the bezel and reader body meet UL50 requirements and effectively seal the unit from vapors and liquids. This design protects the electronics from harmful contamination. These compact insert card readers conform to ISO standards. The readers are available with single or dual head configurations supporting 2 or 3 tracks of information. Dual-head units include circuitry to automatically ensure that the ISO magnetic stripe is read in the case where a dual-stripe JIS (Japanese) credit card is inserted. A card is read by inserting it into and/or removing it out of the card slot.

Optional mounting brackets, which tilt the unit forward to aid in draining water from the reader, are available.

Features

  • Sealed bezel and chassis
  • Ideal for gas pumps and outdoor kiosk applications
  • Multiple interfaces available
  • Available with a protruding or flat bezel
  • Mounting brackets optional

IntelliHead

Ultra-Compact. High Noise Immunity. Flexible Interface.

The IntelliHead product line fits the tiny Delta ASICalong with an equally miniaturized microprocessor directly into the three-track magnetic head. The IntelliHead not only saves development time by providing formatted outputs, but it also provides the highest form of integration by placing all of the electronics into the 3-track magnetic head. The OEM designer can join the magnetic head and an appropriate card rail into a convenient location on the product. This arrangement minimizes the footprint of the card slot as well as the electronics required to read the magnetic tracks.

All IntelliHead models can read 3-track cards with swipe speeds of from 3 to 60 inches per second (7.6 to 152.4 cm/s). Each has an integrated 5 inch (125mm) cable and 5-pin Molex connector; they can easily be equipped with an adapter cable to extend the length as required. The readers have all passed appropriate agency approvals including CE level B. The compact IntelliHead family of magnetic card readers offers support for USB, RS-232, SPI, and Shift-Out (Strobe/Data) applications. Each is available in a variety of reader packages.

Features

  • Decode and interface electronics encapsulated inside the read head
  • Superior read performance
  • Increased noise immunity
  • Excellent environmental resistance
  • Small foot print
  • Multiple interfaces
