ISO/IEC 7810 (RFID) Identification cards Physical characteristics is definitely a worldwide standard that defines the physical characteristics for (RFID) identification cards. It’s the reason for ISO/IEC 7810:2003 to supply criteria that (RFID) cards shall perform and also to specify the needs for such cards employed for worldwide interchange.
The options specified defined RFID card Physical dimensions, that are various sizes of identification cards having a nominal thickness of 0.76 mm :
ID-000 specifies a size of 25 mm * 15 mm, with the corner slightly (3mm) bevelled. The ID-000 size was initially based on ENV 1375-1, Identification card systems-Intersector integrated circuit(s) card additional formats Part 1: ID-000 card size and physical characteristics.
The ID-1 format specifies a size 85.60 * 53.98 mm (3 3/8 in * 2 1/8 in) and rounded corners having a radius of 2.88-3.48 mm (about 1/8 in). It’s generally employed for payment cards (loyalty cards, RFID cards, atm RFID card, etc.). Today it’s also employed for driving licences in lots of countries. This format can also be employed for personal identity cards in certain countries, automated fare collection system cards for trains and buses.
The ID-2 format specifies a size 105*74 mm (4.134 * 2.913 in). This dimensions are the A7 format. The ID-2 format has employed for in French and Romanian identity card, and it was also utilized by the German identity card issued until October 2010.
ID-3 specifies a size 125 * 88 mm (4.921 * 3.465 in). This dimensions are the B7 format. This format is generally employed for passport booklets.
The other specifications of ISO/IEC 7810 specified include:
-conditions for RFID card conformance
-the scale and tolerances from the RFID cards
-the development and materials from the identification cards and the physical characteristics from the cards for example bending stiffness, flammability, toxicity, potential to deal with chemicals, dimensional stability, adhesion or blocking, warpage, potential to deal with heat, surface distortions.
