HP Magnetic Stripe Reader

The Magnetic Stripe Reader reads up to three tracks of information with a single swipe of a magnetic stripe card in any direction. The beeper and LED signal a successful read. It can be used as a freestanding unit or can be permanently mounted using the threaded inserts in the bottom of the reader via screws or Velcro, hook and loop fasteners. At just 3.5 inches long, the Magnetic Stripe Reader has a very small footprint.
