Magnetic stripe version

For magnetic stripes there are two different versions. They are called HiCo (High Coercivity) and LoCo (Low Coercivity). They differ in the magnetic flux density with which they can be encoded.

  • LoCo: 300 Oe – Standard, data can be deleted by influence of external magnetic fields
  • HiCo: 2750 Oe – inadvertent deletion is almost impossible, not changeable with commercial magnetic heads

Magnetic stripe layout



Besides the standard magnetic stripe in black we can offer you other colours (red, blue, green) or other widths.





Magnetic stripe Encoding


Of course we can encode the  magnetic stripes directly with your desired information (e. g. customer number)







Magnetic stripe printing


The magnetic stripe can be printed as desired (black or white)
