Magnetic Pattern Recognition Sensors FAQ


Is it possible for the sensors to read magnetic stripe information on cash cards?

Magnetic stripe information cannot be read. The sensors' built-in permanent magneto will generate magnetic flux leakage of approx. 95kA/m, which causes damage to the magnetic information on cash cards. Only if the magnetic information has a coercivity of 95kA/m or higher, can that information be read.
