Code – Wikipedia

If two FNC4s are used consecutively then all following characters will be treated as such, up to the end of the string or another pair of FNC4s. For the end user, Code barcodes may be generated by either an outside application to create an image of the barcode, or by a font-based barcode solution.

Take the smart route to manage medical device compliance.

The technology of bar coding is based on the recognition of patterns encoded in bars and spaces of defined dimensions. 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.

Two of the symbols are used for stop end-of-barcode indication, stop and reverse isk.

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. FNC1 at the beginning of a bar code indicates a GS isl code which begins with a 2- 3- or 4-digit application identifier assigned by the Uniform Code Councilwhich explains the following digits.


The minimum width of the Quiet Zone to the left and right of the Bar Code is 10x, where x is the minimum width of a module. The 1517 of each bar or space may be 1, 2, 3 or 4 units modules. 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.

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. Bar code print quality test specification.

The check symbol is calculated from a weighted sum modulo of all the symbols. Therefore this version remains current. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval. Code bar code symbology specification. For instance, encoding 154117 ASCII character “0” can be viewed aswhere a sequence of 1’s is a bar and a sequence of 0’s is a space.

For example, application identifier indicates that an ISO numeric country code and ship-to postal code follows. This article’s use of external links may not follow Wikipedia’s policies or guidelines.

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. It specifies Code symbology characteristics, data character encodation, dimensions, decoding algorithms and the parameters to be defined by applications.

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. Graphical symbols for use on information technology and telecommunications technical drawings and in relevant technical product documentation.


BS ISO/IEC 15417:2007

The widths value is derived by counting the length of each run of 1’s then 0’s in the pattern, starting from the left. Within each code set, some of the data code points are reserved for shifting to one of the other two code sets. It specifies the symbology identifier prefix strings for Code symbols. The initial subset is selected by using the appropriate start symbol. The “Shift” symbol switches a single following symbol’s interpretation between subcodes A and B.

Despite its name, Code does not have distinct symbols, so it cannot represent code points directly. Monday to Friday – Consider the string ” Code is one such symbology.

Three 1’s in sequence indicates a bar three times as thick as a single 1 bar. Manufacturers of bar code equipment and users of bar code technology require publicly available standard symbology specifications to which they can refer when developing equipment and software. Automatic identification and data capture techniques. For example, in the following table, the code variant A checksum value is calculated for the alphanumeric string PJJC:.
