Magnetic Card Reader

Magnetic Card Reader

Magnetic Card Reader

I am looking for a magnetic card reader (MCR) with the following requirements:
-half insertion read
-RS232 interface
-low profile bezel
-reads all three tracks

If anyone knows of a manufacturer that has such a product, I would greatly appreciate hearing about them.

RE: Magnetic Card Reader

Sorry, I forgot to mention we are interested in an OEM version that we can incoporate into our product.  The Panasonic model from Digi-key that could serve (fig 5) is not available until late July at the earliest.  We want the flat bezel to provide a low profile surface on the face of our machine.  Thanks for the replies just the same.
