LoCo or HiCo Magnet Stripes?

The difference between these types of magnet stripes lays in the magnetic field strength (Oersted) which is needed for the encoding or deletion. Fundamentally, the smaller the field strength the higher the risk of data loss. LoCo-magnet stripes (Low Coercivity) with 300 Oe are used for credit or debit cards and are cost-efficient. This type of magnet stripe can be accidentally deleted by external magnetic influences. HiCo-striped (High Coercivity) with 2750 or 4000 Oe are very robust and are often used for ID-cards. However, the field strength is irrelevant when it comes to the reading of the encoded data on the magnet stripes.

Encoding of Magnet Stripes

Magnet stripes are divided into three encodable tracks and ben store 1024KB of data. Track 1 and 2 can only be written one and can only be read after that. The third track can be encoded again and again and offers, according to ISO 7811 encoding, effectively 107 usable characters (numbers, letters, and other characters). With our long-lasting expertise, we are at your side when it comes to personalising and encoding your magnet stripes. Prior to production, we make a sample which you can test in your system.
