How To Extend The Life Of Your Splash Card
The technology that makes your Splash Card work includes an antenna, electronic chip, and magnetic stripe. These are embedded into the card when it is manufactured. There are three primary reasons for your Splash Card to stop working on electronically controlled doors:
- Damage to the antenna or damage to the bond between the chip and the antenna will destroy the card.
- Exposing the card to electro static discharge (ESD) can damage the integrated circuit.
- Strong magnetic fields can wipe out the programming on the card’s chip.
Your Splash Card usage is strictly for access control and identification purposes, including Splash Cash, meal plan, and other specific uses at Tulane University. When Splash Cards fail, it is frequently the result of abuse by the card holder. Below is a list of common actions that damage a card
- Machine washing the card when it is forgotten in a pocket of a shirt or pair of pants.
- Exposing the card to extreme heat (direct sunlight on the dash of your car, clothes dryer or iron).
- Punching a hole or slot in the card.
- Bending, twisting or crimping the card.
- Exposing the card to chemicals including organic solvents, thinners, mineral spirits, alcohol, isopropyl, ethanol or methyl.
