Barcode card and barcode types
- Mar 26, 2018-
Barcode card is the card with Barcodes.
The bacodes are a series of wide and narrow bars that can be scanned.
There are many different types of barcodes, the most common is the Universal Product Code or UPC code that you see on items purchased in stores.
You can scan a barcode with your barcode scanner and it will bring up the information stored on your POS system.

BARCODE CARD TYPES
Code 39: Capable of encoding uppercase letters A-Z; digits 0-9; and special characters such as SPACE, minus (-), period (.), dollar sign ($), slash (/), percent (%) and plus (+).This barcode can be of any length, but the more characters encoded, the larger the symbol will be.
Code 128: This is an alphanumeric symbol capable of encoding digits 0-9, upper and lowercase letters A-Z, and all standard ASCII symbols. Code128 is variable length—the more characters, the larger the barcode symbol will be on the finished plastic card.
Code 93: Capable of encoding the exact same characters as normal Code 39 barcode cards; uppercase letters A-Z; digits 0-9; and special characters such as SPACE, minus (-), period (.), dollar sign ($), slash (/), percent (%), and plus (+). The only difference is that this barcode symbol is more compact.
UCC_EAN128: This symbol is capable of encoding the same characters as a normal Code 128 barcode; digits 0-9; upper and lowercase letters A-Z; and all standard ASCII symbols. However, the UCC/EAN 128 Barcode formats the data in a different way so that the type of information encoded can be identified. This is done with application identifiers. These 2, 3, or 4 digit numbers are enclosed in parenthesis and identify the type of data that follows.
UPC_E: This fixed-length; numeric-only symbol is a compressed version of the UPC-A. All barcodes must contain 6 digits, and because the UPC-E is used for the number system zero, all symbols must begin with a zero.
CodaBar: Capable of encoding digits 0-9 as well as six special characters, (-) dash, (:) colon, (.) period, ($) dollar sign, (/) slash and (+) plus. The start/stop characters A, B, C, and D can also be included on each bar code card.
