Below will be found a brief synopsis of some Magnetic Strip Encoding Standards. It is the purpose of this document to provide criteria to which cards ios perform.

Failure to conform to specified criteria is negotiated between the involved parties. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval. Site Search Upcoming Events.

Magnetic Strip Jso 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. This document specifies requirements for embossed characters on identification cards.

The data is read least significant bit first. Physical Plastic Card 2.

Recording Density bits per inch. It takes into consideration both human and machine aspects and states minimum requirements.

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.

This table is only an overview of what data fields are contained on the three tracks of a magnetically coded driver’s license. As a general rule, data on Magnetic Cards conforms to the encoding format for financial transaction cards ISO ISO Specification – No longer in use.

Account Number Expiration Date. The information below is abstracted from these standards.

The embossed characters are intended for transfer of data either by use of imprinters or by visual or machine reading. This document is one of a series of International Standards describing the parameters for identification cards as defined in the terms and definitions clause and the use of such cards for international interchange.

Physical Dimensions of Cards: No consideration is given within this document to the amount of use, if any, experienced by the card prior to test.

In the early years of Magnetic 781-1 technology, data was recorded at lower density to increase read-reliability. 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 ido on track 3. 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 track data on the card.


Using either system is correct but intermixing or reconverting values can result in errors. Note from the table below that Magnetic Stripe Readers used for acquiring Credit Card data isoo only to read tracks 1 or 2 from the card. Call Abacus 21 for further details.

Track 1 contains the customer’s name in addition to the account number and expiration date recorded at higher density. The original design was made using the Imperial measurement system. Proof sent to secretariat or FDIS ballot initiated: The layout of embossed characters in this area is not intended to interfere lso TIM.

Note also the redundancy:. Lower-density data recorded on track 2 contains only the account number and expiration date.

Other custom utilizations are also possible and appropriate. Track 3, originally an alternate numeric-only track, is no longer used in the Banking and Credit Card format.
