MTK-R13 Half Insertion Magnetic Card Reader

MTK-R13_Magstripe_Card_ReaderMTK-R1300 is the half-insertion magnetic card reader with compact and dependable design.  The reader implements partial decoding of magnetic tracks conforming to ISO7811. It can read approximately 60% of the magnetic stripe. (Approximately 52 characters on track 1; 25 characters on track 2; and 73 characters on track 3).

Series Information: MTK-R13 is provided in 2 series:  RS232 and TTL.  The 2 series are of the same shape but different in communication mechanisms.

  1. RS232: This series is port powered with RS232 for commands and data transfer with host machines.  For application development, users should follow our specific communication protocols;
  2. TTL:  This series read ISO Standard Magnetic Data  and decode them to CLS, RCL and RDT.  Developers can follow our timing chart and TTL definition table for operation and development.
