In the past, symbology specifications were developed and published by a number of organizations, resulting in certain instances in conflicting requirements for certain symbologies. For example, given the string “xy23”, savings on barcode length using code set C are achieved only if it is applied to middle part of the string. Graphical symbols for use on information technology and telecommunications technical drawings and in relevant technical product documentation.

FNC1 at the beginning of a bar code indicates a GS bar code which begins with a 2- 3- or 4-digit application identifier assigned by the Uniform Code Councilwhich explains the following digits. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Within each code set, some of the data code points are reserved for shifting to one of the other two code sets.

Code 39 bar code symbology specification. This page was last edited on 23 Novemberat Search all products by. Three 1’s in sequence indicates a bar three times as thick as a single 1 bar.

BS ISO/IEC 15417:2007

Check out our FAQs. At the end of a string, delaying the transition to code set C until there are an even number of digits remaining avoids an extra symbol. Code set C is used to efficiently encode digit strings. Each bar or space is 1, 2, 3 or 4 units wide, the sum of the widths of bars must be even 4, 6 or 8 unitsthe sum of the widths of the spaces must be odd 3, 5 or 7 unitsand total 11 units per symbol.


A single 1 would be the thinnest line in the bar code. Text Compression for Bar Codes”. The shifts are done using code points 98 and 99 in code sets A and B, in code sets A and C and in code sets B and C to switch between them:.

Especially the ASCII char of value 0 and of value 95 and above may be defined differently in the font that is installed. Views Read Edit View history. If two consecutive ‘FNC4’ characters are used, all following data characters are extended ASCII characters until two further consecutive ‘FNC4’ characters are encountered or the end of the symbol is reached.

The width of each bar or space may be 1, 2, 3 or 4 units modules. You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or The technology of bar coding is based on the recognition of patterns encoded in bars and spaces of defined dimensions. Each symbol consists of three black bars and three white spaces of varying widths. Code specifies a combination of 6 alternating bars and spaces 3 of each for each symbol. Automatic identification and data capture techniques. Code bar code symbology specification Status: Barcode reader Barcode printer.

For example, using the patternthe run lengths are 1 digit 11 digit 01 digit 13 digit 02 digit 13 digit 0. For the purpose of computing the check symbol, the shift and code-switch symbols are treated the same as any other symbol in the bar code.

Monday to Friday – It is mandatory at the left and right side of the barcode. For instance, encoding the ASCII character “0” can be viewed aswhere a sequence of 1’s is a bar and a sequence of 0’s is a space. The two stop symbols are merged into a unit long stop pattern.


When the stop pattern is read left-to-right the usual casethe stop symbol followed by a 2-module bar is recognized.

The FNC x codes are used for special purposes. The checksum is computed over the symbol values, without regard for which code set is active at the time. Two of the symbols are used isoo stop isk indication, stop and reverse stop. It specifies Code symbology characteristics, data character encodation, dimensions, decoding algorithms and the parameters to be defined by applications.

The remainder is then converted back to one of the non-delimiter symbols following the instructions given below and appended to the barcode, immediately before the stop symbol.

Bar code print quality test specification. There are numerous methods of encoding information in bar code form, known as symbologies.

Verfahren der automatischen Identifikation und Datenerfassung. The check symbol is calculated ios a weighted sum modulo of all the symbols. However, this feature is not widely supported. Optimizing the length of the resulting barcode is important when barcode readers are used which must detect the entire barcode ieec at uec in order to read it, such as common laser scanners.

As there are an odd number of digits in the middle of the string, the odd one must be use a different code, set, but it makes no difference whether this is the first or last; 16 symbols are required in either case: Life cycle A standard is reviewed every 5 years 00 Preliminary.
