A compact swipe card reader with a PC keyboard interface

Product Information

The MagTek Wedge Interface Mini 3-Track Magnetic Swipe Card Reader connects between a PC and its keyboard, and looks transparent to both the keyboard and the PC until card is read. When a card is read, the Reader disables the keyboard and sends card data using the same scan codes used by the keyboard. The PC cannot distinguish between data from the keyboard and data from the Reader. The MiniWedge Readers can connect to PS/2 or AT type PCs, and is powered by the PC keyboard interface. The Reader can be configured to send card data with or without start sentinel, end sentinel, and carriage returns, and also recognizes commands from the PC to enable or disable the keyboard or card reading.
