Check readers utilize a magnetic head to read and validate the coded account number and routing number on a check. These units have transport belts and rollers to move checks through the pathway. Check readers accumulate dirt from use, as well as pollutants in the air. These contaminants build up on the reader’s magnetic head and can cause read errors.
Waffletechnology MICR / Check Reader Cleaning Cards are designed to remove contaminants from the magnetic read heads while also cleaning the transport mechanisms and pathways. Insert this safe and effective product as you would a check into the reader. The card will clean as it feeds through, keeping your check reader operating as designed.
