Magnetic Card Reader

Magnetic card readers, also referred to as magnetic stripe readers (MSR), connect to the POS system via a USB, PS/2 or serial interface, reading and transferring customer credit card data to the computer for transaction processing. By combining magnetic stripe readers with a merchant account provider they can read the two or three programmable tracks of data on the back of a bank, gift, or credit card and verify card validity, avoiding fake or fraudulent cards.

POSMicro carries a full line of magnetic card readers from top POS hardware manufacturers like IDTech, MagTek, Unitech, POS-X and Logic Controls capable of interpreting tracks 1 & 2 and even magnetic stripe readers capable of reading all three tracks.
