SPI swipe reader with encrypting IntelliHEAD

This OEM swipe reader with SPI interface is using the encrypting IntelliHEAD.
The MagTek encrypting IntelliHEAD is a high integrated low profile magnetic head which assures safe card transactions according PCI (Payment Card Industry) specifications and lend itself for the POS business. In the encrypting IntelliHEAD are integrated a 3-track F2F decoder ASIC and a µProcessor. The complete electronic is safe shielded in the head. Using a TDEA algorithm (3-DES) the information will be encrypted before been transmitted. Therefore for each device an unique key will be used.
The integrated multi-channel decoder assures a powerfull and safe decoding of all ISO compliant cards. Even considerable damages of the card or significant deviations of the amplitudes are no problem. Card speeds from 7cm/s up to 152cm/s will be accepted.
No additional peripheral devices are needed with the encrypting IntelliHEAD. This reduces costs and noice disturbanes. All analog signals are converted within the shielded housing.
The encrypting IntelliHEAD is available with different rails (length of 43, 60 and 90mm).
