The TA32 ultra miniature card reader is 30% smaller than any other portable magstripe reader in the world. Use it to read all 3 tracks of standard magstripe cards. Each transaction is timestamped and stored in non-volatile memory for easy retrieval later. This reader has a longer swipe length which minimizes any errors when swiping cards. It contains a built-in rechargeable battery which will give up to 50 hours of continous use before requiring re-charging - thatís over 50,000 swipes! Also, the built-in automatic shutdown (user programmable) powers down the TA32 when it is idle to conserve battery power even longer. Re-charging is simple via the USB interface - the battery is fully charged in 2-3 hours. The faster data transfer rates using the USB interface allow for quick downloads with a minimum of hassles. Use the TA32 to track time and attendance, service calls, home visits, outdoor events, VIP and customer loyalty cards, subcontractors and more. It comes with carry case, neck strap, USB cable, download software and drivers.
