Proof sent to secretariat or FDIS ballot initiated: Account Number Expiration Date. This document specifies requirements for embossed characters on identification cards.

Information Content including control characters. No consideration is given within this document to the amount of use, if any, experienced by the card prior to test. Magnetic Strip Encoding Standards. ISO Specification – No isso in use. ISO defines 78111-1 physical characteristics of the card. Below will be found a brief synopsis of some Magnetic Strip Encoding Standards. Track uso contains the customer’s name in addition to the account number and expiration date recorded at higher density.

Full copies of these standards can be pruchased from www. This table is only an overview of what data fields are contained on the three tracks of a magnetically coded driver’s license. Note also the redundancy:. The original design was made using the Imperial measurement system. Recording Density bits per inch.

Other custom utilizations are also possible and appropriate. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval. Low density data is still recorded on track 2 for compatibility with older-technology readers and provide redundancy when reading with newer-technology readers.


Using either system is correct but intermixing or reconverting values can result in errors. Check out our FAQs.

Account Number Name Expiration Date. While the information contained on each track may be only slightly different, the field order, field lengths, and method of field separation and termination differs significantly. Monday to Friday – As a general rule, data on Magnetic Cards conforms to the encoding format for financial transaction cards ISO Life cycle A standard is reviewed every 5 years 00 Preliminary.

In the early years of Magnetic Stripe technology, data was recorded at lower density to increase read-reliability. The embossed characters are intended for transfer of data either by use of imprinters or by visual or machine reading. Note from the table below that Magnetic Stripe Readers used for acquiring Credit Card data need only to read tracks 1 or 2 from the card.

Track 3, originally an alternate numeric-only track, is no longer used in the Banking and Credit Card format.

Readers with both track 1 and 2 are recommended for acquiring Credit Card data since redundancy permits the authorization process to compare account information on both tracks and also fallback to the lower density track data if the reader is unable to decode track 1 due to damaged jso data on the card.


The data is read least significant bit first.

Character Configuration including parity bit. It takes into consideration both human and machine aspects and states minimum requirements. Call Abacus 21 for further details. The information below is abstracted from these standards. Track 1 and 2 of the Driver’s License Magnetic Stripe format conform to the original formatting standards used by the Banking and Credit Card industry.

Failure to conform to specified criteria is negotiated between the involved parties. Site Search Upcoming Events.

Physical Dimensions of Cards: Tracks 1 and 3 read alphanumeric data at bpi, while track 2 reads numeric data only at 75 bpi. It is the purpose of this document to provide criteria to which cards shall perform. Lower-density data recorded on track 2 contains only the account number and 78811-1 date. The layout of embossed characters in this area is not intended to interfere with TIM.
