For Magnetic Stripe Applications (Secondary Reference Cards)
Q-Card magnetic calibration cards, also known as secondary reference cards, contain a magnetic stripe that produces a known amplitude at saturation. These cards can be used to calibrate magnetic stripe analyzers, which are needed to verify quality during the manufacturing process of cards and tickets with magnetic stripes, such as credit cards, hotel key cards and transit tickets.
Features & Benefits
- High coercivity or low coercivity
- Standard ISO ID-1 size
- Q-Card/PTB* calibration
- Ensures accurate, ISO-qualified magstripe testing
- Easy to calibrate at your own facility
*Q-Card has transferred the technology used to produce the official magnetic stripe reference cards from Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), which has ceased to offer these services.
