MagTek USB HID 3-Track Mini Swipe Card Reader (Black)
The MagTek USB HID 3-Track Mini Swipe Card Reader is a compact magnetic stripe card reader with a single read head that conforms to ISO standards. A card is read by sliding it, stripe down and facing the LED side, through the slot either forward or backward. A built-in 6 foot USB cable allows for connection and compatibility with any PC, computer, or terminal with a USB interface, and also serves as the power source so no external power supply is required. Unlike HID keyboard emulation readers, this device does NOT use keyboard emulation. It behaves like a vendor-defined HID device so that a direct communication path can be established between the Host application and the device without interference such as keystrokes from other HID devices.
