Introducing the Industry's first stand-alone Magnetic Stripe Reader (MSR) with two Magnetic Heads designed to reduce confusion at the Point of Sale.

Featuring a 3-track, bi-directional, dual-sided magnetic reader, the SureSwipe MSR was designed specifically to read any magnetic stripe card regardless of which way the magnetic stripe is facing when swiped. With a 99.9% accuracy rate, the SureSwipe MSR ensures the card data will be read on the first swipe every time.

  • Compatible with MagTek's existing USB MSR readers.
  • Designed and configured to interface seamlessly with leading electronic cash registers, POS terminals and other USB devices.
  • An LED indicator on the top of the reader provides the operator with continuous status of the reader operations.
