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.

In the early years of Magnetic Stripe technology, data was recorded at lower density to increase read-reliability. ISO Specification – No longer in use. The data is read least significant bit first. Proof sent to secretariat or FDIS ballot initiated: Site Search Upcoming Events. The embossed characters are isi for transfer of data either by use of imprinters or by visual or machine reading.

It takes into consideration both human and machine aspects and states minimum requirements.

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 isp 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. Track 1 contains the customer’s name in addition to the account number and expiration date recorded at higher density.
