Badge and Badge Reader

A photograph for visual identification and circuitry for machine identification of an individual are both provided in the personnel badge 1 (upper left).

A photograph 2 and an employee identification number 3 are superimposed over printed circuit paths 4 (middle left). The paths 4 extend to terminals 5 at the lower edge of 1. Other circuit paths 6 are printed on the reverse side (lower left), at right angles to and in an area coextensive with that occupied by the paths 4. Paths 6 extend to terminals 7 along the lower edge of 1 and, for machine reading purposes, are given numerical designations 0 through 9.

Interconnections 8 are provided between selected paths 4 and selected paths 6 to establish commutative values, which represent the identification of the individual.
