90mm Rail, OEM Magstripe Reader
(IDT3304 Series)
 
90mm Rail Specifications

The 90mm rail is a MagStripe reader for OEM applications. It reads up to three tracks of data with a single swipe in either direction. Its 90mm length slot and mounting options make it a perfect fit for reading magnetic stripes in any OEM application. It has reliable MagStripe reading on damaged or bowed cards. The rugged ABS plastic chassis with molded-in stainless steel card wear plate exceeds 1,000,000 card swipes. The reader is available in custom configurations including intelligent interfaces, and custom cable/connector options.

 

 

Features:

  • Small size and multiple standard footprints

  • Reads 1, 2, or 3 tracks of magnetic data

  • Swipe speed of 3 to 60 inches per second

  • Operating life exceeds 1,000,000 card swipes

  • Superior reading of high jitter, scratched, and worn MagStripe cards

  • The chassis utilizes a stainless steel wear plate

  • Bi-directional read capability

  • JIS (dual head) compatible 90mm readers are available

  • One year warranty

  • Data and Clock output standard
