More about Barcode labels
Consecutive numbered or barcode labels are extremely useful for inventory control, parking permits, tracking and tracing, part identification and many other applications. There are several varieties of barcodes out there, so it’s important to know what type you require for your specific application. For scanability, we always recommend barcodes are printed on a white background with black ink (or very dark) for contrast and conform to certain size requirements. Here are a few of the more common barcodes, along with some characteristics and limitations:
These are scanned by point of sale (POS) systems for retail goods. These barcodes are most commonly found on standard product labels.
Code 3 of 9
Typically used for part identification, for example automotive. Some characteristics and limitations of this barcode are they alphanumeric, reads bars only, variable length, high reliability scanning, low to medium information density.
Code 2 of 5
This barcode is commonly used for inventory control and warehousing, such as electronics. These barcodes are self-checking, they read both the bars and the spaces, require accurate printing, they can be of variable length but are numeric only, they have high-reliability scanning but must be an even number of digits.
If you require sophisticated tracking and tracing, such as in a hospital, they you probably require this type of barcode. This barcode can contain the highest information density, it is alphanumeric, reads both the bars and spaces, they can be of variable length however complex coding can lead to data entry errors.
