High-coercivity (HiCo) at 4000 Oe
High-coercivity Magstripe require higher amount of magnetic energy to encode, and therefore are harder to erase.
HiCo stripes are appropriate for cards that are frequently used, such as a credit card.
Other card uses include time and attendance tracking, access control, library cards, employee ID cards and gift cards.
Low-coercivity (Loco) at 300 Oe
Low-coercivity magstripes require a lower amount of magnetic energy to record, and hence the card writers are much cheaper than machines which are capable of recording high-coercivity magstripes.
However, LoCo cards are much easier to erase and have a shorter lifespan.
Typical LoCo applications include hotel room keys, time and attendance tracking, bus/transit tickets and season passes for theme parks.
A card reader can read either type of magstripe, and a high-coercivity card writer may write both high and low-coercivity cards (most have two settings, but writing a LoCo card in HiCo may sometimes work), while a low-coercivity card writer may write only low-coercivity cards.
