A popular technology used worldwide is magnetic stripe. It is used on everything from credit cards to drivers licenses.

Card data can be encrypted on one, two or three of the tracks which are located on the magnetic stripe.
Todays dye sublimation printers can encode and print cards in the same process. Magnetic stripe technology
is recommended for low to moderate security levels. Typical applications would include membership cards,
parking cards and gift cards. It can also be used with time and attendance or financial cards.

JGC Technologies offers magnetic stripe and debit stripe technology as an option on to PVC, Polyester Badges,
Hang Tags and Laminating Pouches.

Single stripe or multiple stripes can be manufactured onto each card. Sizes we provide are:


The Oersted (Oe) (unit of resistance to the magnetic change) can be on any stripe:

300 Oe (Low Coercivity)

2750 Oe (High Coercivity)

4000 Oe ISO Readback Voltage (this is the higher oersted version of regular 2750oe HiCo and 300 oe LoCo.
This is typically used in ATM and point of sale type applications. All three of these magstripes have a readback
voltage of 100%. The higher the oersted, the harder it is to erase the data)

4000 Oe High Output (readback voltage is 160% of the normal ISO readback - this magstripe is used primarily
for the 1/8" wide junk or debit stripes, but is also seen in access control applications as a 1/2" stripe and sometimes in 5/16")

Used in dining, vending or stored value cards, our debit stripes come in:

4000 Oe High Output

All stripes except for debit stripes can be encoded or programmed.
