Not for new designs. For new designs see the Smart Mag JX


The Smart Mag J is a decoded magstripe reader (with internal decoding) designed to be used in any application which requires the reading of a magstripe from a card, such as licenses, student IDs, and employee IDs. Since the decoding is internal to the Smart Magt J, no wedge reader or external device is required. These readers are available in many different industry standard interfaces, are programmable, and are available with a variety of options, such as leds, alphanumeric displays, and relays. The Smart Mag J will read all hi and lo-co magstripes, at any density. Perfect for use in Access Control and Time & Attendance applications.
