The Model 260 incorporates a magnetic stripe reader with advanced technology 2D barcode reading capability. The Model 260 can read any government issued ID card with magnetic stripe information and/or 2D barcodes. This creates a single device for reading virtually all government issued IDs. The data is also transferred to the host device via a standard USB interface. This approach to scanning both magstripe and 2D information with one device is an ideal solution for the POS, ID authentication and law enforcement environment.
