Magnetic Electronic Locks use readers recognize the coding imprinted on a magnetized strip. This coding is usually sealed in a plastic card. Other versions have a series of small permanent magnets embedded in a key as the unlocking system.

As an electronic lock, if the encoded strip matches the accepted values, the separate locking mechanism is triggered to allow access. In many cases the reader is connected to a larger computer system to verify the imprinted encoding as correct.
