MagneSafe® IntelliHead is the industry’s first magnetic sensing, media validating, tamper resistant security module. It is more than just a magnetic read head. Built into leading tablets, kiosks, and custom solutions.
Magstripe Card Reader Head that Does More
The MagneSafe IntelliHead is a read head with built-in intelligence for the secure reading of magnetic stripe cards. It reads up to three tracks of data, is bi-directional and meets ANSI, ISO and AAMVA standards. Intelligence comes from its ability to do more and read more than any other read head in the industry.
Secure Card Reader that Protects Sensitive Data
The design incorporates MagTek’s revolutionary ASIC that securely encrypts cardholder data directly within the read head prior to transmission so no sensitive data is ever exposed. It further can tokenize data, generate dynamic data, and has the ability to authenticate the card and the data to ensure the card is not a counterfeit copy nor has the encoded data been altered.
Magnetic Stripe Head with Intelligent Design
Reading more is a good thing. Both the standard card data and the underlying magnetic fingerprint of the card is read, all in a single swipe. This magnetic fingerprint, when combined with our Magensa Authentication Services, can validate the authenticity of the card and prevent the use or fraudulent cards.
Secure Card Reader Head
The MagneSafe IntelliHead exceeds PCI regulations. The head is tamper resistant and all electronics are encapsulated and securely potted inside the head to prevent tampering and unauthorized access. All of the processing power and communication circuitry is located within the mounted authentication sensor.
