Proof sent to secretariat or FDIS ballot initiated: The layout of embossed characters in this area is not intended to interfere with 7811-1. In order to encode the additional alpha-numeric information required on the Driver’s License, the specification was revised to permit alpha-numeric information to be encoded on track 3.

Other custom utilizations are also possible and appropriate. It is the purpose of this document to provide criteria to which cards shall perform. This document specifies requirements for embossed characters on identification cards.

Tracks ido and 3 read alphanumeric data at bpi, while track 2 reads numeric data only at 75 bpi. The embossed characters are intended for transfer of data either by use of imprinters or by visual or machine reading.


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. Magnetic Strip Encoding Standards.

No consideration is given within this document to the amount of use, if any, experienced by the card prior to test. Site Search Upcoming Events. Below will be found a brief synopsis of some Io Strip Encoding Standards. The information below is abstracted from these standards. ISO defines the physical characteristics of the card. Check out our FAQs.

It takes into consideration both human and machine aspects and states minimum requirements. Physical Plastic Card 2.

Lower-density data recorded on track 2 contains only the account number and expiration date. Physical Dimensions of Cards: Character Configuration jso parity bit. In the early years of Magnetic Stripe technology, data was recorded at lower density to increase read-reliability. Using either system is correct but intermixing or reconverting values can result in errors. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval.

This table is izo an overview of what data fields are contained on the three tracks of a magnetically coded driver’s license. Track 3, originally an alternate numeric-only track, is no longer used in the Banking and Credit Card format. Low density data is still recorded on track 2 for 7181-1 with older-technology readers and provide redundancy when reading with newer-technology readers.


Monday to Friday – Note from the table below that Magnetic Stripe Readers used for acquiring Credit Card data need only to read tracks 1 or ido from the card.

Call Abacus 21 for further details. Full copies of these standards can be pruchased from www. 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 io is unable to decode track 1 due to damaged track data on the card.

Life cycle A standard is reviewed every 5 years 00 Preliminary. The data is read least significant bit first. 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.
