EzWriter - Full-Featured Magnetic Stripe Reader-Writer

Precision Writing on MagStripe Cards

ID TECH EzWriter™ encodes, reads, & verified three tracks of MagStripe data in a single swipe. A high-resolution tachometer precisely locates encoding; the encoding quality exceeds ISO 7811 standards for new cards. Data density is selectable to 75 or 210 BPI for any track. High or low coercivity is software selectable. An LED provides operation status.

Heavy Duty and Long Life

Full-length guides & a deep card slot ensure accurate and alignment and registration. The low force design of EzWriter ensures a smooth and easy card swipe which provides an operating life for more than 1,000,000 card swipes. The die cast housing gives durability and maximum stability during reading and writing operations.

Workshop™ PC Software

Workshop™ is ID TECH’s Windows based PC software utility. It includes all standard and many custom options for reading & writing to a MagStripe card. A single window shows the reading & writing format selections for each track. Default selections are available for simple & correct set-ups when encoding ISO, AAMVA or other formats. Database and file operations are supported. Convenient features such as track erasing, card data comparisons, and sequential data writing are included. The EzWriter communicates via an RS232 or a USB-RS232 serial COM port interface.
