ID TECH MiniMagBi-Directional, 1000000 Passes, 3 - 60 inch/s, TTL, 6ft Cable, 4.6 oz, Beige

The MiniMagTM compact magnetic stripe reader can read 1, 2, or 3 tracks of magnetic stripe information. Power, when the MiniMag is connected to the host via a decoder box, is obtained from the decoder box. Operating current is 4mA maximum for a 3-track configuration.

The electronics are based on ASIC technology designed for use with magnetic stripe cards encoded with F2F, ANSI, and ISO-conforming data. The MiniMag reliably processes data encoded within ANSI and ISO standards, on both high and low coercivity magnetic media. The circuit is designed to read cards demagnetized down to 30% or 40% of ISO and ANSI signal levels, on tracks 1/3 or 2 respectively. These reading characteristics are designed to insure that the MiniMag will reliably read ‘real world’ cards.

In order to insure reliable reading under varying conditions, the MiniMag will reliably read magnetic media at speeds from 3 inches per second (IPS) to 60 IPS with typical accelerations. The output signals consist of a DATA and CLOCK for each encoded track. The electronics operate from 2.6VDC to 5.5VDC.

A CARD PRESENT signal is provided to alert the host when magnetic media is passed through the reader. It is activated after magnetic pulses have been detected and stays valid until after the last pulse is read. Media may be read bi-directionally without any pre-conditioning of the electronics, although the host system must employ enough data storage to ensure it can properly recognize the decoded bit sequence.
