CDT-A – Card Dimension Test Tool
Card dimension test for return cards : This device is quick and accurate method for GO/NO GO while checking the 2D dimension of an ID-1 card. It comes in two versions: – CDT-A1 for returned cards – CDT-A2 for unused cards.
This device is quick and accurate method for GO/NO GO while checking the 2D dimension of an ID-1 card. It comes in two versions: – CDT-A1 for returned cards – CDT-A2 for unused cards.
This control tool allows to test the size (height and width) of nonembossed or embossed ID-1 card against the “card dimensions and tolerances ” requirements as defined in the ISO/IEC 7810 norm for “Unused card“ CDT-A2 and “Returned Card ” CDT-A1.
It addresses manufacturers needs for:
– Quality control / production control for non-embossed and embossed cards
– Audit and certification for a personalization center
Easy go/no-go control of the external dimensions of the card against the MIN and MAX values (two different footprints)
Options : RS232 gauge connection
|Dimensions||15 x 17.5 x 5.6 cm|
This tool is a combo tool which includes the CWT-A1 and CWT-A2. It allows, thanks to a reversible gauge (1.5mm height and 2.5mm height), to control the warpage of either a card without embossing characters or a card with embossed characters.
The CWT-A fixture is a gravity-fed ramp with defined gaps for the quick in-production Pass/Fail testing of overall card warpage It comes in two versions: – CWT-A1 with gauge 1.5mm and 1.3mm for un-embossed cards. – CWT-A2 with gauge 2.5mm and 2.3mm for embossed cards.
Tools very useful with PST-E Peel Strength Test.
PSPT-Ax pre-cuts the card with a cutter for preparing test sections as described in ISO 10373-1 and MasterCard CQM.
- PSPT-A-H: version for four horizontal and one vertical sections.
- PSPT-A-H: version for seven vertical and one horizontal sections.
The IBS tool is designed according to CQM to perform backside spot pressure test, it works with the preparation tool on the right side. This version comes with digital gauge connected to a PC and a dedicated utility.
The ATT-A tester is an equipment to test the resistance of the smart card surface elements to abrasion. The card is placed on a bed; the head can receive either 35x35mm sandpaper (CQM test method TM-B04-1) or 13×19 mm soft eraser rub (CQM test method TM-B04-2). Length and position to abrade can be set, head support different weights and speed is adjustable up to 100 mm/s. For sandpaper test, the head is lifted up when it is repositioned to its start position. In the middle of the tester, there is a cutting tool for sandpaper. Applications The ATT-A tester is the perfect equipment to test the resistance of the smart card surface elements to abrasion.
The FTD-P20 is a second tester version dedicated to perform both bending and torsion according to ISO10373-1 on 20 cards. 5 cards are stressed as shortened bending according to ISO24789-2.
