HID CARDS, FARGO PRINTING PASSES IAB AND NCITS DURABILITY TESTS
HID Corp. and Fargo Electronics Inc. jointly announce the successful completion of independent lab analysis and the passing of standardized industry tests. The independent lab tested HID ISOProx access control cards in conjunction with Fargo’s new High Definition Printing (HDP) technology. The tests were performed in accordance with Industry Advisory Board (IAB) proposed License Durability Guidelines for AAMVA, and the National Committee for Information Technology Standards (NCITS), Standard 322-1998, “American National Standard for Information Technology—Card Durability Test Methods Working Paper.”
Fargo printed high-resolution graphics on a sample lot of more than 100 HID cards. The cards were scratched, bent, pierced, frozen and baked, submerged in liquids ranging from beer, coffee and cola to isopropyl alcohol, chlorine bleach and salt water and finally run through a washer and dryer. The card surface and printed image demonstrated exceptional endurance under the extreme testing conditions. “By certifying our products, HID and Fargo hope to set a new standard of measurable excellence for our competitors to follow,” says Steve Wagner, vice president of business development at HID.
