Magnetic Stripe Cards

Magnetic Stripe CardsThis kind of cards contains a stripe made out of magnetic particles that are applied onto the card using a certain amount of energy. Magnetic stripe cards are used when data should be readable via physical contact.

Magstripe cards follow the international standard ISO 7811. The stripe contains three tracks which can be recorded like this:
Track 1: 79 alphanumeric characters (density: 210 bpi)
Track 2: 40 numeric characters (density: 75 bpi)
Track 3: 107 numeric characters (density: 210 bpi)

Magstripes come in two varieties: HiCo (high coercivity) and LoCo (low coercivity). LoCo stripes require a lesser amount of energy to record, thus making them cheaper to produce, but easier to erase by strong magnetic fields. HiCo stripes, however, are much harder to erase and more resistant.
The two magnetic stripes are also optically different: LoCo stripes appear to be brownish, HiCo cards black. It is also possible, though, to colour the magnetic stripe. You would like the stripe to fit to your design? Choose among the colours silver, red, blue, green and yellow.

We offer magnetic stripe cards with 300 Oe (LoCo) and 2750-4000 Oe (HiCo).
