All our magnetic stripe cards conform to ISO/IEC 8711 and have a recordable magnetic field on the back side of the card.

After the magnetic stripe is encoded with data it can be read by dedicated magnetic stripe readers.

Typical applications of magnetic stripe cards are for example:

  • Gift-/Voucher cards
  • Time Attendance
  • Access Control
  • Employee ID´s
  • Fuel cards
  • Loyalty
  • etc.

HiCo- magnetic cards offers unlike to LoCo-magnetic cards a greater protection against a potential loss of data, since they are being encoded with a higher magnetic field. A magnetic stripe is divided into different tracks (up to 3 tracks).

Track 1 and 2 are only specified for reading (track 1 max. 79 alphanumeric characters, track 2 max. 40 numeric characters), and track 3 is used for data recording (max. 107 numeric characters).

Magnetic stripe cards are available in different versions:

  • LoCo –     300 Oe (Oerstedt)
  • HiCo  – 2.750 Oe (Oerstedt)
  • HiCo  – 4.000 Oe (Oerstedt)
