There are two different types of magnetic card reader heads used in the NCR HiCo MCRW and NCR HiCo IMCRW magnetic card readers. The heads are electrically and mechanically the same but the assemblies are different ATM parts with different ATM part numbers. The flex cable pin out is what keeps these two assemblies from being interchangeable between the HiCo MCRW and HiCo IMCRW magnetic card readers. The 998-023-5684 assembly is specifically for the NCR HiCo MCRW card readers. The Sankyo SBW237705 assembly is specifically for the NCR HiCo IMCRW card readers. These HiCo ATM parts are always in stock and can be shipped the same day we receive your order.
The tables below show the pin out configuration for both the NCR HiCo 998-023-5684 and the NCR HiCo SBW237705 card reader heads. For reference a third table is included showing the pin out configuration for the NCR LoCo 998-023-5655 card reader head which has the same pin out configuration as the NCR HiCo SBW237705.
|NCR HiCo MCRW 998-023-5684 PIN OUT - SOLDER SIDE|
|NCR HiCo IMCRW SBW237705 PIN OUT - SOLDER SIDE|
|NCR LoCo 998-023-5655 PIN OUT - SOLDER SIDE|
Notice that pin out positions 6, 7, 8 & 9 for the NCR HiCo IMCRW are reversed from the NCR HiCo MCRW. This is accomplished by reversing the read section for the IMCRW as compared to the read section for the MCRW. The connections coming out the back of the head are thus reversed providing the pin out change for the two types of NCR HiCo magnetic card reader assemblies.
