EconoWriter Low Coercivity Magnetic Stripe Reader-Writer

Product Description:

ID TECH EconoWriter™ encodes, reads, & verified three tracks of MagStripe data in a single swipe. A high resolution tachometer precisely locates encoding; the encoding quality exceeds ISO 7811 standards for new cards. Data density is selectable to 75 or 210 BPI for any track with low coercivity writing operation. An LED provides operation status.

Full-length guides & a deep card slot ensure accurate and alignment and registration. The low force design of EconoWriter ensures a smooth and easy card swipe which provides an operating life for more than 1,000,000 card swipes. The overall chassis length provides stability during reading and writing operations.

Workshop™ is ID TECH’s Windows based PC software utility. It includes all standard and many custom options for reading & writing to a MagStripe low coercivity card. A single window shows the reading & writing format selections for each track. Default selections are available for simple & correct set-ups when encoding ISO, AAMVA or other formats.
