There are two styles of key cards (pardon the industry lingo!):
- CR-80/credit card size (3 3/8 inches by 2 1/8 inches by 30 mm thick)
- CR-50 (1 3/4 inches by 3 ½ inches by 30 mm thick)
In addition, there are 3 primary types of magnetic stripe that are used. Many systems can accommodate all 3, though upgrade fees might apply. The degree of magnetization relates to how well the card will hold its’ information when exposed to harmful elements:
- lo-coercivity / LoCo / 300 oe (most common)
- mid-coercivity /Medco / 600 to 650 oe
- high-coercivity / HiCo / 2750 oe
