ASR2600: All purpose card reader
..."it reads all 3 mag stripe tracks plus a barcode in one swipe!"
The ASR2600 is a Barcode and Magnetic Stripe Reader combined. It reads up to three
tracks of magnetic stripe information plus a barcode with a single swipe in either direction.
The reader is designed for heavy duty and demanding applications like
Access Control, Club Membership, Time & Attendance, ID card, Self-Service Kiosks,
and a whole range of other User Identification tasks. Its die-cast metal base, stainless steel wearplate,
and impact-resistant housing make it ideal for high-volume traffic.
It reads virtually all commercial and industrial barcodes
in common use today, including Code 128 and Code 39. It reads the magnetic stripes
found on Credit Cards, Loyalty Cards and virtually all other mag stripe cards.
The ASR2600 Slot Reader has a full repertoire of data editing and formatting features.
It 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.
It can be programmed to omit or transmit any of the three mag stripe tracks or barcode
that may be present on the card.
Programming is achieved by sending special codes via the RS232
interface to the reader. The programming is remembered the next time the reader is
powered on. If preferred we can program the reader to your precise requirements
before despatch at no extra charge.
Once we have your specific programming requirments on file each
further reader purchased at a future date will be automatically programmed for you
before despatch. You just connect up and start scanning.
The reader is ideally suited for small scale applications where you may need to
change the data structure in the light of working experience. For
larger scale deployment the reader can be used as a development tool.
When the final form of the data is decided it may be possible to substitute
lower cost hardware limited to just the features you need.
The slot reader is a designed for professional users who
usually need a RS232 interface which can be connected direct to a PC running
dedicated software or other special purpose equipment.
A keyboard wedge version is available for simpler applications but this
restricts the ability to program special data formats. An infra red version
is also available to read obscured security barcodes. Please contact the sales
office to discuss exact requirements if you need these or other special features.
