MagTek Rolls Out USB Magstripe Reader with Keyboard Emulation

Carson, CA - October 15, 2001 - MagTek, Inc. has introduced a new USB swipe reader that transmits data via keyboard scan codes. The reader is designed to work with all keyboard application software, and it is fully compliant with USB standards.

"We are responding to the needs of our nearly half million Wedge Reader customers who now want USB capability, but need a plug and play solution to work with their existing software applications developed around our original Keyboard Wedge Reader," explains MagTek Vice President, Kiran Gandhi. "As our large base of existing Keyboard Wedge customers migrate to newer computers with USB capabilities we expect many will upgrade to the USB Keyboard Emulation reader. Users of MagTek's original full-size wedge readers have the option of staying with the same size footprint, or downsizing to the space-saving "Mini" version which requires 50% less space," Gandhi adds.
