  • ID TECH’s Spectrum Air Dual Headed Magnetic Stripe Insert Reader has been developed for sealed applications requiring (IP65) sealed readers that are designed to withstand the rigors of an outdoor environment. The Spectrum Air’s superior sealed chassis design prevents the ingress of water, vapor and other contaminants into the mail terminal enclosure.

  • The Spectrum Air’s unique chassis design greatly reduces the possibility of leaks developing over the life of the product. The Spectrum Air dual heads are embedded with a flex circuit, which is intrinsically easier to seal than heads with wires. The Spectrum Air card seated switch is magnetically actuated and immune to contamination and corrosion.  It utilizes ID TECH’s superior decoding electronics for optimum reading reliability.
  • The Spectrum Air is designed with ID TECH’s secure electronics providing either TDES or AES encryption and DUKPT key management to provide the data security from the point of entry. The Spectrum Air is ideal for gas pumps and outdoor kiosk applications. Cards are read on both insertion and/or withdrawal for superior reading reliability. Multiple interfaces allow the reader to be configured for “drop in replacement” application when required
