ID TECH VersaMag™ Intelligent Swipe Reader for Magnetic Stripes with Optional Bar Code Capability

ID Technologies VersaMag Intelligent Swipe ReaderReads magnetic stripes.
The ID
TECH VersaMag reads and decodes up to three tracks of information with a single swipe in either direction. Keyboard and RS-232 interfaces are available. An adjustable beeper and multi-color LED indicator signal a successful read.

Edits and formats data.
The ID
TECH VersaMag can be programmed to divide, rearrange, edit, and validate fields of scanned data. In addition, it allows for up to 16 preamble or postamble characters. Windows-based configuration software is included for easy, on-screen programming of "magnetics-only" models with serial interface.

Supports bar code scanning.
By attaching an undecoded laser, CCD, wand, or slot scanner to a ID
TECH VersaMag with the optional bar code capability, the same unit can decode scanned bar code data, as well as read and decode magnetic stripe media.

Performs quickly and reliably.
With its combination of magnetic stripe and bar code decoding capabilities, the ID
TECH VersaMag is especially suited for the high- performance demands of point-of-sale environments. Its stainless steel wearplate and spring-loaded magnetic head insure optimum contact and exceptional dependability. State-of-the-art magnetic "read" electronics and ID TECH’s signature "on the fly" bar code decoding technology deliver unparalleled value.
