ADDITIONAL ELEMENTS ON A CARD
MAGNETIC STRIPE – may be used as data carrier. Data can be saved in 3 data paths. 1) alphanumeric, 2) numeric 37 signs, 3) numeric 105 signs.
We use magnetic stripes in two types:
LoCo – gęstość 300 – 400 Oe
HiCo – gęstość 2700 – 4000 Oe – high magnetic resistance.
To pick correct magnetic stripe, you have to be aware of which type of reader is going to be used with a card.
THE SIGNATURE STRIP – enables to put owners signature on a plastic card. The strip is printed with screen printing in white or transparent color.
CHIP – Depending on usage we recommend SIMENS chips: SLE 4406 – 104 bites, SLE 2236 – 221 bites, SLE 4432 – 256 bytes, SLE 4442 – 256 bytes, SLE 4428 – 1024 bytes and others.
