Isc, each symbol begins with a bar and ends with a space. You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or Code specifies a combination of 6 alternating bars and spaces 3 of each for each jso.

A scanner seeing the reverse stop symbol then knows it must skip the 2-module bar and read the rest of the barcode in reverse. Please improve this article by removing excessive or inappropriate external links, and converting useful links where appropriate into footnote ice. The minimum width of the Quiet Zone to the left and right of the Bar Code is 10x, where x iecc the minimum width of a module.

Barcode reader Barcode printer. The initial subset is selected by using the appropriate start symbol. Proof sent to secretariat or FDIS ballot initiated: Although code set C uses one code symbol to represent two digits, it does not always produce a more compact code than code sets A or B. This article’s use of external links may not follow Wikipedia’s policies or guidelines.

Optimizing the length of the resulting barcode is important when barcode readers are used which must detect the entire barcode image at once in order to read it, such as irc laser scanners. Accept and continue Learn more about the cookies we use jec how to change your settings. Code bar code symbology specification Status: The “Code A”, “Code B” and “Code C” symbols cause all future symbols to be interpreted according to lec corresponding subcode. The faster, easier way to work with standards.


The “Shift” symbol switches a single following symbol’s interpretation between subcodes A and B. January Learn how and when to remove this template message. Life cycle A standard is reviewed every 5 years 00 Preliminary. Therefore this version remains current. The optimal encoding can be found using a dynamic programming algorithm.

BS ISO/IEC 15417:2007

Code includes symbols: Each symbol in the barcode is composed of three bars and three spaces. 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: 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.

The checksum is computed over the symbol values, without regard for which code set is active at the time. Learn more about the cookies we use and how to change your settings. It is calculated by summing the start code ‘value’ to the products of each symbol’s ‘value’ multiplied by its position in the barcode string.

For example, using the patternthe run lengths are 1 digit 11 digit 01 digit 13 digit 02 digit 13 digit 0. Code 39 bar code symbology specification. Using code set C saves one symbol per two digits, but costs a mode-shift symbol to enter and exit the set. Take the smart route to manage medical device compliance.

Text Compression for Bar Codes”. If during this sequence of extended encodation a single “FNC4” character is encountered it is used to revert to standard ASCII encodation for the next data character only.

The FNC x codes are used for special purposes. Using the example above, an ‘A’ would be depicted with the patternor as widths in the tables below. The following table details 15147 widths associated with each bar and space for each symbol. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval.


It specifies the symbology identifier prefix strings for Code symbols. However, this feature is not widely supported.

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 io of the symbol is reached. 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:. The Algorithm Design Manual 2nd ed. The stop pattern permits bidirectional scanning.

For instance the code set C value “33” and the code set B value “A” are both considered to be a Code value of 33, and the check digit is computed based on the value of 33 times the symbol’s position within the barcode. In the past, symbology specifications were developed and published by a number of organizations, resulting in certain instances in conflicting requirements for certain symbologies.

Reporting just the lengths of each run gives 1, 1, 1, 3, 2, 3, thereby 115417 a widths value of Automatic identification and data capture techniques. A single 1 would be the thinnest line in the bar code. The start symbol and first encoded symbol are in position 1. The two stop symbols are merged into a unit long stop pattern.

For example, application identifier indicates that an ISO numeric country code and ship-to postal code follows. Code is one such symbology. The rules defining the translation of characters into bar and space patterns, and other essential features of each symbology, are known as the symbology specification.
