Embossed Character Location Gauge

embossed character gauge

Q-Card’s Embossed Character Location Gauge is designed to provide for fast and accurate go/no-go verification of embossed characters per ISO/IEC 7811-1 and Mastercard CQM.

The gauge is manufactured out of Lexan, a virtually unbreakable polycarbonate that has an abrasion-resistant coating for scratch-resistance and durability. The gauge is precision etched and tinted with a red fluorescent colorant for maximum readability. Card locator pins are stainless steel for added durability and accuracy. Each gauge is serialized for traceability and ISO compliance. The serial number label is on the reverse side and embedded to reduce label degradation.

The gauge includes a foam-lined plastic case for convenient, safe storage and to extend the gauge life by preventing accidental scratching when not in use.
