Looking for some information on a J2 580 POS system

Postby ddonais on Fri Apr 12, 2019 9:46 pm

I am looking for anyone who might know about the magstripe reader in the J2 580 POS system.

I have extraced one, and I am looking at interfacing it with something else, and would like to know the pinout and function. I know on the j2 580 it acts like a keyboard, I would like it to act as a keyboard on a normal computer as well.

Thanks

I don't believe it can be done. The interface board inside the J2 takes the signal input from the reader and converts that into a USB type input so it's read as a keyboard wedge.

Why on earth would you want to do this anyway? You can buy a USB mag card reader from eBay for about a tenner.

I like messing around. I have one on the way. But wanted to see if I could make this one work.
