In ISO 7816 standard Part 6.1 it's written:

The electrical circuits shall remain not active until the contacts of the card are mechanically connected to the contacts of the interface device.

What I need to know is that how interface device will detect the card insertion, so that it can start the activation process? Is there any special pin on the Smart Card slot? or we can use smart card pins for this? etc.
