Description: MagTek Magstripe Mini-Wedge Swipe Reader - Magnetic card reader - black
Mfr Part #: 21080202
The MiniWedge Swipe Reader connects between a PC and its keyboard. The Reader looks transparent to both the keyboard and the PC until a card is read. When a card is read, the Reader disables the keyboard and sends card data using the same scan codes used by the keyboard. The PC cannot distinguish between data from the keyboard and data from the Reader. MiniWedge Readers can connect to PS/2 or AT type PCs. The PC keyboard supplies power to the MiniWedge Reader. The Reader can be configured to send card data with or without start sentinel, end sentinel, and carriage returns. The MiniWedge Reader also recognizes commands from the PC to enable or disable the keyboard or card reading. When powered up, all devices are active.
