Plastic cards equipped with an information carrier intended for automatic reading in electronic devices can find a place wherever it is required to identify the holder.
You can find examples in:
access control systems, where only the authorized people have the right to reside in certain areas (e.g. hotel rooms, laboratories, warehouses), or the use of specific devices (computers, photocopiers, etc.).
time attendance systems, requiring employees to record daily entry and exit from the workplace, which allows for greater control of actual hours worked and the corresponding adjustment of wages.
Due to some weaknesses in the use of cards in access control systems (the possibility, that the card will be lost or use by a third party), to increase security of the system there are also few methods of biometric identification (voice recognition, fingerprint, retina) recommended.

Types and applications
Magnetic stripe cards LoCo / HiCo
Currently, two types of strips are used for magnetic cards:
LoCo (low coercivity) - low coercivity of the belt - approx. 300 oeHiCo (high coercivity) - high coercivity coefficient - up to 4000 oe
A magnetic strip is a tape on which information can be coded. The magnetic stripe is read by dragging the card through the reader.
The magnetic strip allows for repeated recording and reading of information in digital form.
