These cards contain a Barium Ferrite insert, which is encoded by magnetizing spots in a specific pattern with specific polarities. Our most popular Barium Ferrite cards are those used with the 26SA and the 28SA-PLUS TouchCard™ access control units. These cards are factory-encoded with a facility (site) code and a unique card ID number. When re-ordering these cards it is necessary to specify the existing facility code and to provide the starting card number (generally one number higher than the highest existing card).
PLEASE TAKE NOTE:
As of 7.01.16, the SKK-06 keytag is obsolete. It may be replaced with the SKC-06 card.

Common Code Cards
The SKL-03P insert reader uses SKC-03 cards. These cards have a facility code that is common to all of the cards at a particular site. The cards do NOT have individual ID numbers, but may be ordered with sequential numbering to aid the customer in card accounting. All ID and artwork options available with the SKC-06 cards are also available with SKC-03 cards.
