What Is A Magnetic Stripe Card?

What is a magnetic stripe card?


[1] The magnetic stripe card is a liquid magnetic material or magnetic stripe as the information carrier, the liquid magnetic material coated on the card (such as passbook) or the width of 6-14mm magnetic stripe on the card (such as common UnionPay cards).


According to the ISO7811 / 2 standard, the first track can store 76 alphanumeric characters and is read-only after being written for the first time; the second track can store 37 numeric characters as well as read-only; The track can store 104 numeric characters, which are readable and writable, and the bank card is used to record the balance of the book. The position of the three tracks on the card is strictly specified in the international standard ISO007811 / 5.


Magnetic stripe card is generally used as a tag, can write, store, rewrite the information content, is characterized by strong reliability, record data density, low readiness, information input, read speed. Because the information read and write of the magnetic card is relatively simple and easy to use, it is easy to use and low cost, so it has been developed earlier and has entered a number of application fields such as finance, finance, post and telecommunications, communication, transportation, tourism, medical, education and hotel Wait.


Magnetic stripe card technology is the longest time in the development of card storage data. There are two commonly used magnetic stripe cards: the high magnetic (HICO) card is encoded at 2750 or 4000 Oersteds, while the low magnetic (LOCO) card is encoded at 300 Oersteds.


Before the launch of the IC card, from the world point of view, the magnetic card as a basis for good technology, has been widely used, but later developed IC card compared with the following lack of information storage, magnetic stripe easy to read and forged , Confidentiality is poor, which requires a computer network or a central database support. Material classification: pvc magnetic cards, metal magnetic cards.


Technical classification: one is a high magnetic (HICO) card, that is, the intensity of 2750 or 4000 Oersteds coding; the other is, low magnetic (LOCO) card, that is, the intensity of 300 Oersteds to be encoded.

3 electrophoresis gold card and imitation gold card distinction

Electrophoretic gold and imitation gold card difference: imitation gold card: card color was dim, time slightly longer card surface prone to fade, pan and other phenomena. True gold card is only when the card color golden, a long time also lost real gold color. Electrophoresis gold card: the use of the latest technology, color like a real gold-like luster, with a unique relief three-dimensional, texture doubled, even more noble metal VIP grade. And can keep the product never fade characteristics.


4 Introduction to metal magnetic card

With a metal card as the main body of the card, plus magnetic stripe. You can also read the information. This gold card is the use of advanced imports of copper, stamping, corrosion, electroplating, painting and other multi-process Seiko made. And add magnetic stripe to store information. It has a unique relief three-dimensional and real gold-like color, is the production of high-end VIP, membership card, commemorative card, calendar card of choice material. In addition, this card is also particularly suitable for the production of commemorative, long possession of the various commemorative cards, such as: wedding, school celebrations, opening, meetings, retirement and other special commemorative.
