The Linea Pro 5 has a built-in magnetic card reader. The card reader incorporates a (3) track magnetic read head requiring a single swipe to read field data from all three tracks.
To capture magnetic stripe information, first activate the Linea Pro 5 by pressing the scan button. When placing the card into the reader, the magnetic strip must face up as shown in the figure below. Keep the edge of the card flat on the inner edge of the reader to ensure that the magnetic strip passes over the read head evenly.
To use the magnetic card reader feature, special software must be used to read and process the card information. Please consult your reseller if this software is available or contact Infinite Peripherals for recommendations on compatible third party software solutions.
