Countertop Encrypted Magnetic Stripe Reader

The MSR213E is one of the MSR213 Series of Magnetic Stripe Readers with the additional security features of Triple Data Encryption Standard (TDES) encryption and Derived Unique Key Per Transaction (DUKPT) key management. It is powered from the USB port, eliminating the need for external power. The MSR213E operates in Keyboard Emulation, Virtual COM Interface and UIC defined Human interface Device (HID) modes.

The MSR213E reads all three tracks of the magnetic stripe cards in both directions and fully conforms to ISO 7811, American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) standards. It has a status LED that is off, green, or red based on the status of the reader. There is also a buzzer to further indicate the status of the reader. It is a highly intelligent device that uses flash memory to store keys and has the capability to turn the LED red when all DUKPT keys have been used.
