MICR -Magnetic Ink Character Recognition

MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition)

  • MICR systems use special ink which can be magnetized, to print characters that can then be read and decoded by special magnetic devices.
  • Detection of characters is a two step process.
  • The reading station is used to sense and identify the magnetic characters as they pass through.
  • Magnetized characters are read by the head.
  • E.g. MICR is used in Banks to check the Checks.
