Magnetic Stripe ID Cards

Magnetic stripe ID cards also known as magstripe ID cards are PVC ID cards containing a band of magnetic material embedded in the resin on the back of the card. Magnetic stripe ID cards store updatable information on a magstripe, which is read when the card is swiped through a magnetic stripe card reader. There are two 2 types of magnetic stripe ID cards: high coercivity (HiCo) and low coercivity (LoCo). Usually low coercivity magnetic stripes are brown and high coercivity stripes are almost black. HiCo cards are more reliable than LoCo cards, as their magnetic layer is denser and much less susceptible to stray field erasure from magnets, making them a better solution for those cards which are frequently used and/or require a longer life.

Advantidge supports magnetic stripe ID Cards as a popular low cost solution for secure access control systems and are often used for credit and identification cards as well as transportation tickets, ATM cards, bank cards, gift cards, loyalty cards, driver’s licenses, telephone calling cards, membership cards, and electronic benefit transfer cards such as food stamps.
