Magnetic Strip Encoding – Abacus 21

The layout of embossed characters in this area is not intended to interfere with TIM. Note also the redundancy:. Call Abacus 21 for further details. As a general rule, data on Magnetic Cards conforms to the encoding format for financial transaction cards ISO Isso data is read least significant bit first.

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. Below will be found a 8711-1 synopsis of some Magnetic Strip Encoding Standards.


While the information contained on each track may be only slightly different, the field order, 7811–1 lengths, and method of field separation and termination differs significantly. This document specifies requirements for embossed characters on identification cards.

Using either system is correct but intermixing or reconverting values can result in errors. In the early years of Magnetic Stripe technology, data was recorded at lower density to increase read-reliability.


The information below is abstracted from these standards. Track 3, originally an 7811-1 numeric-only track, is no longer used in the Banking and Credit Card format.

Full copies of these standards can be pruchased from www. ISO defines the physical characteristics of the card.

Physical Plastic Card 2. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval.

It takes into consideration both human and machine aspects and states minimum requirements. This table is only an overview of what data fields are contained on the three tracks of a magnetically coded driver’s license. No consideration is given within this document to the amount of use, if any, experienced by the card prior to test. Check out our FAQs. Account Number Name Expiration Date. Proof sent to secretariat or FDIS ballot initiated: Magnetic Strip Encoding Standards.

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 7811-11 3. Lower-density data recorded on track 2 contains only the account number and expiration date.

Readers with both track 1 and 2 are 78811-1 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. Note from the table below that Magnetic Stripe Readers used 7811–1 acquiring Credit Card data need only to read tracks 1 or 2 from the card.


Recording Density bits per inch. Low density data is still recorded on track 2 for compatibility with older-technology readers and provide redundancy when reading with newer-technology readers.

ISO/IEC 7811

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.

The original design was made using the Imperial measurement system. ISO Specification – No longer in use. Other custom utilizations are also possible and appropriate. Tracks 1 and 3 read alphanumeric data at bpi, while iwo 2 reads numeric data only at 75 bpi. The embossed characters are intended for transfer of data iiso by use of imprinters or by visual or machine reading.
