Identification cards - Recording technique - Part 6: Magnetic stripe - High coercivity
ISO/IEC 7811-6:2008 specifies requirements for a high coercivity magnetic stripe (including any protective overlay) on an identification card, the encoding technique and coded character sets. It includes a modified algorithm for waveform measurement which produces more consistent results (incorporated from ISO/IEC 7811-6:2001/Amd.1:2005), and an additional requirement has been added for signal amplitude.
ISO/IEC 7811-6:2008 specifies the following:
- the conditions for conformance;
- physical characteristics for the card (warpage and surface distortions) and the magnetic stripe area (location, height and surface profile, roughness, adhesion, wear, and resistance to chemicals);
- the signal amplitude performance characteristics of the magnetic stripe;
- the encoding specification including technique (F2F), angle of recording, bit density, flux transition spacing variation, and signal amplitude;
- the data structure including track format, the use of error correction techniques;
- the location of encoded tracks.
ISO/IEC 7811-6:2008, together with a standard for test methods, provides for interchange between various types of identification card processing devices and systems.
