Magnetic strip reader?
A magnetic strip reader is where data is stored on credit cards or debit cards. Iron based magnetic particles are what the data is stored in.
A magnetic strip reader does exactly what it says: it reads the magnetic strip on the card that the strip is attached to. The most common cards with magnetic strips are of course debit and credit cards, but the usage of magnetic strip readers is much wider. A number of ticket solutions, for instance for parking, coffee machines or toll roads also use magnetic strips. The information that is read by the reader depends very…
A magnetic card reader is a device which reads information contained in a encrypted sequence on a magnetic strip. Such as a credit card reader, or Driverse License reader. Hotel Door locks now commonly have a magnetic card reader attached to replace the old fassioned key, since the cards are so cheap to make, and can be remade even if the original is lost.

A credit card reader is a piece of hardware that is designed to interpret the contents of a magnetic strip or smart chip located on or in a credit or debit card.

It's called a magnetic strip for a reason, and usually checkouts that use anti-theft devices will have a sign that says keep magnetic strips away from a certain area (the cashier usually rubs the item over the area to disable the device). You can do the same thing. Use a strong magnet, and rub it several times over the strip.
The purpose of Chip and PIN is to help credit or debit card transactions to be handled smoothly. Under this technology, the card is "swiped" through a magnetic reader, reading the magnetic strip on the card, or the clerk makes an imprint from the raised text of the card.

If you have ever looked at a plastic credit card, when you turn it over so that you are looking at the back (where the box is for you to sign it) you will find a brown/gray stripe about a centimeter wide that runs across the entire width of the card. This is a magnetic strip. It is made of very finely ground up Iron particles in a glue covered by a thin film of…
The best way to destroy the magnetic strip on any type of card is to cut the strip into pieces (or use a shredding machine that accepts cards).

Burmah Castrol Strips are used to verify the prescence, direction and to a degree the force of a magnetic field. They are used in determining the effectiveness of a Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) procedure when inspecting steel pipes and structures. When in the correct orientation the BC strip will show indications across the strip when it is used with either wet or dry mag particle inspection media.
/* Only those printed after 1991. Those printed before 1991 do not have this anti-counterfeiting measure. */ Correction: There is no magnetic strip in US bills. There is however what's called a "security strip", a plastic ribbon that glows under UV light. They're used in all denominations from $5 to $100 and were introduced with the 1990 series rather than 1991. The location and color of the strip are different for each denomination.
