enhanced security, better performance
Magnetic stripe cards are equipped with a stripe or a foil which is used as a contact memory and identification device. Their main advantage lies in data storage capacity, which beats both barcode and RFID cards. Moreover, the possibility of data amendment according to current requirements brings a highly flexible solution. Magnetic cards are widely used as attendance cards, access cards, transport tickets, loyalty or discount cards.
High Coercivity (HiCo) magnetic cards offer better protection against damaging external conditions such as other magnetic fields. Low Coercivity (LoCo) magnetic stripes are used as a standard and low cost option. Magnetic cards cooperate with other systems through a scanning device which recognizes the type of a card and reads data relevant to the specific operation.
