All widths are multiples of a basic “module”. For example, using the patternthe run lengths are 1 digit 11 digit 01 digit 13 digit 02 digit 13 digit 0. 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.

Therefore this version remains current. 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. There are possible unit wide iex, and the code uses all possible symbols. It is used for alphanumeric or numeric-only barcodes.

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. Monday to Friday – Thus, each symbol begins with a bar and ends with a space. 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. The optimal encoding can be found using a dynamic programming algorithm.

However, this feature is not widely supported. When the stop pattern is read right-to-left, the reverse stop symbol followed by a 2-module bar is recognized. The Algorithm Design Manual 2nd ed. Reporting just the lengths of each run gives 1, 1, 1, 3, 2, 3, thereby producing a widths value of 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.


There will always be 6 runs and the lengths of these 6 runs form the Widths value. Life cycle A standard is reviewed every 5 years 00 Preliminary. The “Shift” symbol switches a single following symbol’s interpretation between subcodes A and B.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The checksum is computed over the symbol values, without regard for which code set is active at the time. Text Compression for Bar Codes”. 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 common laser scanners. The technology of bar coding is based on the recognition of patterns encoded in bars and spaces of defined dimensions.

The width of each bar or space may be 1, 2, 3 or 4 units modules. Thus, it only 1517 using if there are enough consecutive digits. The FNC x codes are used for special purposes. The start symbol and first encoded symbol are in position 1. Retrieved from ” https: 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.

The sum of the products is then reduced modulo 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. Consider the string ” A 154417 1 would be the thinnest line in the bar code.

Code includes symbols: Views Read Edit View history. Each symbol in the barcode is composed of three bars and three spaces. Either solution requires the use of an application or an application 154417 in to calculate the check lec and create the barcode. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The following table details the widths associated with each bar and space for each symbol.


Three 1’s in sequence indicates a bar three times as thick as a single 1 bar. For example, application identifier indicates that an ISO numeric country code and ship-to postal code follows. Graphical symbols for use on information technology and telecommunications technical drawings and in relevant technical product documentation.

Reading the stop pattern left to right is iev stop pattern followed by a 2-unit barand reading the stop pattern right to left is the reverse stop pattern followed by a 2-unit bar.

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.

1.2.1 Normative References

The stop pattern permits bidirectional scanning. Each symbol consist of three black bars and three white spaces of varying widths. It is mandatory at the left and right side isk the barcode.

There are numerous methods of encoding information in bar code form, known as symbologies. The stop pattern is composed of two overlapped symbols and has four bars. Barcode reader Barcode printer. This section gives the compression strategy. This article’s use of external links may not follow Wikipedia’s policies or guidelines. The two stop symbols are merged isk a unit long stop pattern.
