BAR CODES

 

Some of the different types of Barcodes we offer:

C128 - has been frequently useful in many applications where a large amount of data must be encoded in a relatively small amount of space. The encoding process is of alphanumeric and numeric data. The C128 can also be encoded by double density, which is an average of twice as many bits per time. C128 barcodes may be generated specifically as 128A, 128B, and 128C.



Codab Bar - (Code 2 of 7 or NW7) is a discrete, width-modulated barcode that provides a character set for encoding numeric data (0-9) plus six special characters ($, -, :, /, ., +). There are sets of start/ stop characters (a/t, b/m, c/*, d/e) available for use with this code.



Code 39 - Is a very commonly used barcode in many different markets that uses character sets of 0-9, A-Z and the following - . $ / + % SPACE.



Ean 13 – has been mostly used in supermarkets, but in 2005 became required in all retail scanning systems in the USA in order to stop imported goods from having to place two bar codes on a product. The standard EAN 13t code consists of 13 digits. The first 2 digits contain the country of the article. The next 5 digits code is the manufacturer of the article. The following 5 digits represent the article number which is given by the manufacturer. The remaining last digit is the check digit.



Ean8 - is a shortened version of the Ean13 code. It includes a 2 or 3 digit country code, 4 of 5 data digits (depending on the length of the country code), and a checksum digit. While it is possible to add a 2-digit or 5-digit extension barcode, the primary purpose of the EAN-8 code is to use as little space as possible.



Interleaved 2 of 5 -is a numeric barcode often used with industrial applications. The data always consists of an even number of digits. Character is composed of 5 elements, either 5 bars or 5 spaces. Of these 5 elements, two are wide and three are narrow. Adjacent characters are interleaved, alternating the spaces from one character with the bars of the other.



UPCA – is one of the most common and well-known barcodes in the United States.  It is found on practically all consumer goods in local supermarket, as well as books, magazines, and newspapers. UPCA encodes on a 12 numeric digit structure.
