H10301 26-bit Proximity Card Format

The HID ordering code number for the Standard 26-bit format proximity cards is H10301

The Standard 26-Bit Format in which a card is programmed is determined by the data pattern that will be compatible with the access control panel. All HID proximity cards and proximity card compatables (card, fobs, tags, etc.) can be programmed with the standard 26-bit card data format. The Standard 26-bit Format is an Open Format. An Open Format means that anyone can buy HID cards in a specific format and that specific format description is publicly available. The 26-bit format is a widely used industry standard and is available to all HID customers. Almost all access control systems accept the standard 26-bit format. 26-bit originated with true Wiegand swipe card technology.
