Magnetic Strip Card Reader Kits! These kits come with all the hardware parts, software, and source code (written in QuickBasic!) The readers interface with the parallel port (printer port) of the PC. The software will read in the magnetic strip bits and display them in a graphical bar code-type format for easy analysis and comparison with other cards. The decoded message is displayed on the bottom of the screen. The formats decodable are ANSI 7 bit and ANSI 5 bit BCD. The software will allow cutting, pasting, saving, loading, and generating of magnetic strip codes (bits). There is also a decrypting function which will make attempts to decrypt unknown bit formats (such as subway or laundry cards). A generously large help file is included which explains the use of the program and also the physical makeup of a magnetic card and reader device. An example QBASIC program is included which demonstrates how to read in and decode a magnetic strip card. There are 2 reader kits available. A track 1 reader and a track 2 reader. Track 1 description: The reader is manufactured by Mag-Tek Corp. Model #SS110 It reads off track 1 on magnetic strip cards. Track 1 commonly contains the Account #, name, and expiration date on credit cards and ATM cards. The reader is enclosed in a black plastic case similar to the readers found on the keyboards at Radio Shack. Track 2 description: The manufacturer is unkown. The device reads off of track 2 on magnetic strip cards. This commonly contains the account number and expiration date. Track 2 is popularly used in security and school ID's. The reader is not enclosed in a case (you can see the PCboards and guts). There are plastic "guiders" which guide the card through the slot and across the reader head. Both readers will operate with the same software. Some assembly and soldering skills will be required to assemble these kits. Ready assembled kits are also available. Applications: * Security!
