Waffletechnology MICR / Check Reader Cleaning Cards, 15 cards/box
Waffletechnology™ Check Reader Cleaning Cards - This card prevents processing delays and misreads as it removes contaminants from check reader feed paths, rollers, and heads. The concept behind Waffletechnology™ is very simple: achieve complete access to critical components within the equipment.
Because optical lenses are rounded and most sensors are recessed, access cannot be achieved through the use of flat cleaning cards. The solution is very simple: design a card that is not flat.
Waffletechnology™ cleaning cards incorporate flexible, raised platforms on their top and bottom surfaces. These cleaning platforms are essentially spring-loaded, significantly increasing the pressure applied to the internal components as the card passes through the mechanism. Not only is cleaning pressure increased, but the platforms actually spring up into surface cavities to clean recessed sensors. Additionally, the leading and trailing surfaces of rounded optical lenses are effectively cleaned. Flat cards do not touch recessed sensors and, at best, only come into contact with the convex tip of a rounded optical lens. As the card is accepted into the mechanism and dispensed by the mechanism, it is cleaning all surfaces.
* Increased cleaning pressure
* Designed to clean recessed sensors
* Reduces residue build-up without dismantling equipment
* Quick, easy, inexpensive preventative maintenance
Recommended Usage: Once per week for low use readers and once per day for high use readers.
1) Insert cleaning card into check reader.
2) Card will pass through the reader as a normal check would.
3) Remove and discard.
4) Repeat if necessary.
